About the Author

Robert V. Taylor is a nationally recognized leader, author, and sought after speaker who invests his life in helping individuals and organizations to realize their full human potential and impact in the world. Born and raised in South Africa, Robert saw firsthand the difference that could be made when oppressed people are given the freedom to discover their voices, trust their imaginations, and find the courage to be who they are. Robert continues to explore integrating personal spirituality and values-driven strategies with the question of how we each leave a footprint of compassion in the world--both at home and in the corporate marketplace. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

What a great book! So often I find myself 'stuck' playing one or two notes, over and again, instead of playing the SONG of life--perhaps you can relate? In his book, A New Way to Be Human, Robert Taylor lovingly walks you through a process for self-examination and transformation--helping you to live life more fully and, dare I say, with a song in your heart. To me, his voice is authentic and compassionate--never preachy or clinical--and the wisdom he shares is extremely impactful. The ingredients are as you might imagine (examine your life-story without judgment, share and find connections with the people in your life, live in full awareness--observing 360 degrees instead of just the narrow path before you, discover the 'one-ness' shared by all humanity, etc., etc.), but the author's 'stepping stones' approach will guide you through a process for re-discovery and absorption of these ingredients into your daily life. The message is interwoven with interesting stories that illustrate and illuminate each lesson, while also making them infinitely relatable--helping you to recognize the invitations for incorporating each lesson into your own life. I've read a lot of what you might call 'self-help' but this book is special: you'll find a loving and practical life-coach in Robert Taylor.

You know when a book arrives in your life totally in sync with your journey? That's my experience with "A New Way To be Human." I'm re-reading Louise Hay's masterpiece "You Can Heal Your Life." Whenever some physical ailment crops up, her book's revelations on how our mind creates illness & imbalance in our body always sets things aright.

And now, beautifully in sync with Louise Hay's work, comes Robert Taylor's spiritual guidance on releasing ourselves from the visible & invisible enclosures we create for ourselves. I find his book to be the perfect healing companion to Louise Hay's book.

I recommend this brilliant combination of books to all suffering from ailments in mind, body or spirit. They work great in meditation, offer authentic practices that heal and restore, and both provide gentle yet structured (and fun!) guidance on getting your ship back on course with full sails.

I'm finding joy in discovering new ways to be human. It's refreshing, releasing. Thank you, Robert Taylor, for sharing your story of courage and for reminding us of the unimaginable freedom & gifts awaiting each of us when we change from our old ways of being human.

A New Way To Be Human: Seven Spiritual Pathways To Becoming Fully Alive by Robert V. Taylor explains that opening our hearts to love and compassion will enhance our humanity. This is the new way of being human which is in contrast to the old ways involving countless compromises and choices that limit or compartmentalize the process of life itself.

The story opens with a foreword by The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus, and Nobelist of Cape Town. The foreword challenges us to explain our identity. There are three steppingstones in this process. The first is to share your story to reveal yourself and where you are headed. The second is to share your experiences with others. The third part is to engage others in order to connect your story outside the traditional comfort zone. A famous Tao saying recognizes that: "The journey is the reward." Jesus Christ said: "I will be with you always."

The concept of the self is quite complex. The Id is the unit of the psyche, residing in the unconscious, that is the source of instinctive impulses which crave satisfaction in accordance with expectations of pleasure. The ego and the superego are modifiers before the instinctive impulses are given expression overtly. Sigmund Freud said that: "Where Id was, there
ego shall be".

A New Way To Be Human challenges us to channel these instinctive impulses outside of our normal comfort zones and into the experiential domain of shared experiences with others within our periphery. The African concept of Ubuntu recognizes that each person exists within the context of others. Your own heart is enlarged, changed, and renewed iteratively when you connect to relatives in the human family. Buddha said that: "The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.

I struggle with how to be who I am supposed to be and how I can achieve my greatest good. For many reasons, doing the right think in the right way is very important to me. Finding guidance is an everyday quest. A New Way To be Human is proving to be an excellent guide. The stepping stones for each pathway are written with love, insight and clarity. I will refer back to this book often and will recommend it to anyone who, like me, is searching for more joy and freedom in life.
