From the Author

EXCERPT: THE LOGIC OF GOD'S EXISTENCE
 
Fromthe unfathomable mysteries in the ocean depths to the dance of life in the densestjungles to the celestial constellations of distant stars, the exquisite orderand breathtaking beauty of the natural world offers compellingevidence of a governing intelligence.
 
Bydefinition, belief in God requires a leap of faith; but it's a leap that isamply supported by logic and reason. Given that persuasive evidence points to theexistence of a complex web of intelligent consciousness that expresses itselfas an entanglement inherent in all creation, it follows that God--the formless intelligence thatcreated us--is present in every atom of creation and that every atom isconnected to every other atom beyond space and time. Therefore, the divine consciousnessthat created us is present in each one of us.
 
It isreasonable then to embrace the definition of God put forth by the sages ofancient India: God is that supremeintelligence which governs everything.
 
Inthose moments when we purely, selflessly, and reverently embody and express thehigher virtues of love and truth, we come into alignment with our innerdivinity and feel the perfect peace and ever-new bliss that come with God-union.We know these moments to be holy, and experience for ourselves that God issynonymous with love, truth, and beauty. Therefore, it is rational to concludethat God is loving, kind and benevolent.
 
Inthose moments when life seems cruel and God seems anything but loving, explanationsand perhaps some measure of comfort may be found in the concepts of karma,reincarnation, and free will, which are touched on in later chapters.

From the Inside Flap

EXCERPT: THE LOGIC BEHIND"WHAT IF?"
 
Given that logic, reason,and faith can only take you so far, the question has to be asked: What if thedoubters are right? What if you are not being divinely guided, your calling is a figment of your imagination, and there are no soul lessons to be learned from adversity? I wouldstill contend that applying these spiritual laws and trusting that a greaterpurpose is at work makes life more enjoyable and suffering more bearable.
 
Whether or not yourbeliefs are true, they shape the way you look at the world and determine howyou experience life. Even in the absence of definitive proof that an organizingintelligence governs all creation, wouldn't you prefer to live in abenevolent and orderly Universe rather than suffer through a random,pinball-like existence in a world ultimately devoid of inherent purpose andmeaning?
 
No matter how faryou progress in your quest for enlightenment, you will have made a quantum leapin the quality of your daily life by consciously choosing to live withkindness, compassion, and a positive, loving attitude. When you choose to fillyour days with love, there is no downside, and the upside is experiencingheaven on earth.
 
       While there is a chance of the world gettingthrough its
       troublesI hold that a reasonable man has to behave as
       thoughhe was sure of it. If at the end your cheerfulness
       isnot justified, at any rate you will have been cheerful.
              H. G. Wells
