About the Author
W. Michael King, Ph.D., a native Californian, is a world-renowned leader in systems integration with electromagnetic waves and fields. He developed internationally recognized seminal research about how electrostatic field boundaries collapse. He has presented courses at major universities, such as Oxford, and many technology corporations, serving an international client base in systems design. As a counterpoint to his scientific career, he worked with a chain of mentors to resolve conflicts of self-esteem that burdened him in his early life, and gained transcendent awareness to prepare him for a magnificent adventure with his body in the throes of clinical death. Based on his experience, recognizing technical instruction was insufficient to develop positive self-image within students and clients, he expanded his practice to become a trusted advisor, mentor and coach spanning the range of working with individuals to the corporate executive suite. His focus is to help others gain objectivity using reason and logic to build self-esteem, an issue that permeates every aspect of life. His many protégés have thrived in all aspects of their lives. His Curriculum Vitae is show on his web site, www.wmichaelking.com

If you seek to evolve, to know self, to overcome the tyrants of previous programming, to overcome automaton behavior, and live with focused intent and volition, this book will not only be a guide, but also a beacon in the dark.
Growing up I was looking out for books which could teach me the basics of human existence. I did not found one which really satisfied me. This one does. Impetus upon impetus.
Plato's Phaidon has always been a popular choice for the last night on earth. On Dali's death they found What is life from Schrödinger on the bedside table. If I had to have a book on my bedside table this is it.
I've met a lot of people in my life that feel they don't know what to believe in when it comes to religion and whether there is something more beyond this physical experience. I myself started feeling this way when I was only a young girl. I found myself questioning the existence of God and death. And in this questioning there was more confusion than there was enlightenment. There was no real structure to anything or any one person's opinions of this topic. It all felt to come from hope than from experiences and reality.
Michael King has written a book about his personal experiences. He beautifully describes in detail real events that have taken place in his life that have helped him understand not only what it is to be a physical human being, but what it is to be a non-physical energetic being. He does not try to advise the reader that if they go and sit on top a mountain and meditate for 30 years they will find God. He asks the reader to look inside themselves and to look at the actions in their life and decide if they are living for themselves or if they are living for others. His approach is gently executed.
I advise anyone curious about reading this book to read it with an open mind because it is not meant to be read any other way. It begins with a man that is struggling with life, both physically and mentally, who is forced to find answers for himself. His path leads him to amazing and wonderful discoveries, the most important being that we as human beings are capable of far more than we are led to believe.
It's easy to feel lost, alone and confused in this world. We are never taught that most of the answers in life lie inside ourselves; that our pursuit of happiness is our own responsibility. This book is about a man who, like everyone, was looking for something more. He found it and achieved something wonderful, but not without a struggle. He shares his experience with the reader in hope that the reader will take responsibility and learn what he has learned.....that there is more out in the universe than we could ever have imagined and it's waiting there for us.....as long as we can commit.....commit to what you ask?....commit to yourself.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that is curious....like I was. His experiences have impacted my life greatly.
The author overcame severe depression and self-loathing caused by his high integrity perturbed by stultifying religious faith. He broke through to evolve into a successful teacher. The book is full of good messages. Take charge of your life. Live in the now. Have the self-confidence to choose your path and grow.
However, the aura/energy based description of human essence stretched my credulity.
Also, some of the stories didn't quite ring true for me. Like it would be wrong for God to send an emissary to him, but it would be a good test for the emissary to come from the all-knowing mentors?
Becoming a full member of the consortium is the goal, but what does "full" mean if the evolution is always important?
I appreciate the book's messages for living, but I don't think an after-life is necessary to justify them.
Nonetheless, this book is the result of a huge amount of thought and courage and I applaud Mr. King for that.
