Zendor the Barbarian: An orphan's battle with science and spirituality in the quest for identity. Maybe the most authentic and honest book you will read on the subject of extraterrestrial intelligence, investigating one's identity and congruence with science and spirituality.
An orphan's quest for identity reveals a new millennial myth wrapped in a true story about the discovery and potential of extraterrestrial origins. The intense trials and tribulations of garnering wisdom in a world that seems alien imbue the journey with humility. As incredulous as it sounds, it is definitely worth the read.
Serendipitously, the young boy is startled by an unknown 'voice' soon after he finds out about his adoption. Two years later he finds himself ascending into an orange cigar-shaped cloud on a regular basis, but with no memory of what happens inside, only a sensation of familiarity and desire to return. What would you do?
Just after his 18th birthday his cosmic mentor returns to ask the question, "Are you willing to die for what you believe in?" His life changes dramatically as a result of the answer.... YES! His experience parallels near-death accounts, but goes far beyond them in scope. Aware of potential misunderstandings he risks sharing the encouraging news.
Join in the journey as he questions reality, investigates the foundation of spirituality and comes to terms with the understanding of what he finds. He makes no pretense in his full disclosure, but maintains a humble attitude as he rips apart the status-quo in the old paradigm of fear, guilt and shame and thrusts his heart into the middle of chaos to find order. He finds a bridge for science and spirituality, once perceived as a battle between mind and heart.
If you have had questions about your own experience or the possibility of extraterrestrial visitors, but don't resonate with the perceptions you've found to date, then this book might help. Zendor will take you down the rabbit hole of quantum entanglement, achieving nirvana along the way and deposit you squarely in the flow of your own contemplations. You might find some answers. No doubt you will explore questions you might not have considered.
This book is a fun ride through metaphysical-land for those who are new to it. Entertaining, enthralling, you can't stop reading it once you get started. If ever you have seen or heard things no one else does and you think you are crazy, think "spiritual" happening instead. For too long we have ignored the inner voices that speak to us and Zen's journey may speak to you as well.

You won't again see yourself or the world in the same way
It isn't often you get to review a book by someone you already know, respect - and this respect is based on the results that Zen delivers in the real, concrete world where most of us live. Zen is a perfect combination of can-do problem solver and off-your-radar philosopher in one amazing human being.
His book speaks of this world and other worlds with data, experience, insights, and questions, many of which the reader is challenged to answer - or at least ponder for extended periods.
Zen does not dispense recipes and firm answers to life's questions. Instead, he invites you to use all six senses and to think. I have not been lucky enough to attend one of his workshops or retreats, yet I am dead sure I would leave with fewer limits to the possibilities in my life.
Zen will take you there. Enjoy.
