About the Author
“It’s the message not the messenger that is important,” Vincent Cole often says. Nevertheless, to satisfy people’s curiosity, he offers this statement. "When people ask me how I came upon the spiritual path, I reply, 'Screaming and kicking all the way.' Before certain experiences led me down a different road, I was everything society rejected and religion judged as wrong. I have no regrets about my 'previous' life. In fact, I admit it was a lot of fun. Most of all it gave to me a greater understanding of life on this planet and a deeper compassion for the struggles of humanity. But I discovered something better, more meaningful and worthwhile than what the world had to offer. It hasn't been easy and each day I feel as if I am just beginning. "What I write is simply sharing things I have experienced and to express the simple message that there is more to life than what we've been led to believe. No matter who you are or what you've done in the past or where you come from, there is a path leading to great exploration and wondrous discovery. You just have to take the next step and enter the garden." Other Titles by Vincent Cole The Next Step in Evolution – a personal guide. What God Said to the Rose – a guide to natural spirituality.
