"Clover Doves" Transformation for Eternity,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clover Doves (Paperback)
Plato: "We are prisoners of our perceptions"
In times of great trauma our sensory systems may transcend their limits to allow us a glimpse at a little more of reality.
Joseph Campbell stated that there is but one truth and many sages. All religions are true as a metaphor of their time and culture(s).
Gary Zukov relates the Universal Constant: "Creation, transformation, Annihilation" as a truth that matter or actually energy is the basis of all that is. All, as we perceive, is created and constantly transforms and then ends only to repeat the process throughout eternity. Eternity is all there is and always will be and there is no time. Time as explained by Joseph Campbell and others exist because we perceive it as that is what occurs between events as they appear to occur in the "field of time" within the "field of opposites."
Courtney's description of Emma's journey through the field of time reveals her "transformation" through experience "learning" and soul enhancement aided by her glimpse of reality through perceptual enhancement "that which is beyond our sensory awareness." This is perhaps a glimpse of an eternal quest in which we all participate. A universal quest that includes other souls which bind us to each other seeking a universal balance "Love." This is the common thread of all religions as revealed in their writings (Light, Love, Balance or Harmony). It is the struggle between good and evil (field of opposites) which is expressed as the root of virtually all myth and philosophy.
Is this the redemption that we (mankind) so desperately seek?
"Clover Doves" eloquently depicts the journey that we all are on. The names and events may differ but the journey of the human soul is universal. We are created into a perceptual field that we experience through our sensory processes that which we may master or transform our being (soul) to a greater state of harmony (love) so that at our annihilation (death) our soul may continue its journey to further enhance the universe as a whole.
Clover Doves starts out and continues with a series of unexpected and distressing events to the reader that weave a pattern of people, places and interactions that come together to represent spiritual growth. You feel the un-ease throughout but you are drawn to continue the quest despite the discomfort. Hang in there the ending is magnificent. We come through this unsettling journey with additional insights to enhance our belief in eternal life which enriches our beliefs no matter what religion or philosophy.
