GOD LAUGHS AT DIRTY JOKES Paperback – Unabridged, September 23, 2014
LIFE IS MAGIC. The universe is a living, breathing contradiction because the existence of an eternal god who always Is, Was, and Will Be is impossible – a paradox – just as the idea that the universe burst into existence all on its own, with no agent to set it in motion, is impossible. Therefore life is inherently contradictory and absurd, and already supernatural. In short, Life Is Magic. GLADJ is a leap forward in the spiritual / new age genre, because it is as well-written, grounded, and funny as popular secular humorists like David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs (friends of the author, incidentally), but makes a comprehensible, convincing case for a hidden layer of existence and an afterlife - operating at a higher vibration - which we can access to deepen our lives by raising our own vibration through positivity, love, courage, generosity, and joy, all of which are the true essence of (a non-denominational) god. Whew! GLADJ will be a comfort to those who have lost loved ones, to know that no one we have cared for is truly gone, and nothing is ever really over. It’s all simply cycles of living and dying, with souls evolving towards love. The book details the journey of a young man named Rob Falgiano – born and bred in the suburbs of Buffalo NY USA in the freewheeling 1970s and ‘80s - from punk rocker / atheist to true believer, crossing a transitional bridge from “regular, everyday life” to a full, powerful awareness of the spiritual realm. He’s accompanied by his brother Steve, a reluctant medium, and his mother Carol, who has spiritual encounters and whose critical role as caretaker appears fated. The book also speaks to those interested in quantum physics and how technology and science are beginning to confirm ideas that were once confined purely to mysticism and religious belief, toward the realization that math and magic are not only not in conflict, but are one, as manifest in god’s creation.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading GLADJ. I found many parallels to my own life stories. I share the same gift as Rob Falgiano in being able to recall dreams. I found it quite intriguing to read his prospective on all subjects covered in his book.
I think about this kind of stuff all of the time. I sometimes can’t listen to other people because they’re too pushy, religiously biased, or weird. GLADJ is comfortable and conversational. Low key, but insightful. Cool.
