Quantum Meditations Marathon
Monday Sept. 5th 11am EST until Sunday Sept. 11th 11am EST
Last week, Quantum Meditations Volume 1 went to the editors. It should be on the market in time for the Christmas season. In celebration, I am going to hold a Meditation Marathon, publishing one meditation every hour for a solid week.
Quantum Meditations is a cumulative work. Most of the individual Meditations are fairly short. Read one at a time, they are interesting and stimulating. But the full depth of this work can only be sampled in a broader selection. However, due to the length of the complete manuscript (currently over 1,600 pieces), it is unlikely that it will ever be published in one volume.
So here I will present a swathe of meditations that won't grace the printed page until volume two. Tune in to pdallen.com over the next week to follow the progress of these transformative pieces.
Look for Quantum Meditations Volume 1, due this November from Balboa Press, a division of Hay House.

Author of Time-loops and Space-twists: How God Created the Universe
Quantum Meditations are a deeply emotional, spiritual, as well as an intellectual reaction and exploration in words, of the worlds within the world. Worlds that often remain unseen, unknown - yet are the driving force behind all the realities we experience each and every moment we live. As such Quantum Meditations is a triumph of the spirit and desire of one man to understand just what it means to be a living being in this amazing, mysterious place we call 'the universe'. It is a masterwork of the human condition; our drive and need to know who and what we are, and our connection, our intimate connection, to all creation.

PD Allen's personal record of his spiritual transformation is as fascinating as it is inspiring. As a Witch, I am aware of my connection to the Universe and its wonders, and I found that Quantum Meditations helped me daily in my studies, by preparing my mind.
Quantum Meditations is a book full of energy. Reading through the pages is contemplation in itself; your heart rate slows, your breathing deepens and anything that may be upsetting or disturbing you falls away from your mind and peace fills the space left behind.
Each piece is a prompt that makes you consider what it means to you. The visual form of each piece is integral to the experience; you can't skim read them, the structure forces you to consider every word and think about the meditation as a whole as well as what it means to you personally.
This is a book full of beauty and peace. I hope that everyone who reads the book finds these things in their lives.
I constantly have found the need to stop and take a measurement as to where I am and what I am thinking because what you have written catches me off guard so many times. It is like some of the writers of poetry whom my reading of causes me to sit and write myself even when I have not read anymore than a few lines of their work. Anyone who ventures here in this work of yours is foolish indeed if they think they can simply scurry through like mice on the way to a hunk of cheese. It simply will not be so easy a task for them to do; and, should they push through they will come away empty handed because, in so doing, they will not allow the cheese to reach its peak flavor provided by proper aging, as would be also lost the taste of the wine to accompany the meal. No, my friend, you have written a great deal here that requires slow reading, many pauses, and a great deal of meditative thought on the part of the reader. I am not done with reading, but I had to come up for air as I do when I read Bishop of Sandburg, Plath or Sexton. You've captured meditative thought, pure and simple. You've asked the questions and delivered sermons in only a few lines. Congratulations my friend, author, philosopher, and weaver of humble words and thoughts into mind stopping lessons for each and every day. I am mesmerized.
