by Warren B. Smith
This timely book has all the trappings of an exciting adventure novel as it takes the reader deep into the life of a spiritual seeker.
Warren Smith’s fascinating spiritual journey begins with a dramatic reading by a traveling psychic. Following the psychic’s explicit instructions, Smith prays to spirits on “the other side” and asks for their spiritual help in his life.
After that prayer a number of mysterious, seemingly “meant to be” personal encounters and spiritual experiences propel him forward on his journey. Smith’s spiritual trek takes him deep into the kaleidoscopic California subculture of alternative New Age spirituality. He “goes with the flow” as he is progressively “led” to various New Age teachers and teachings. Each door that opens seems to promise new wonders, new vistas, and a deeper sense of spiritual fulfillment to satisfy his ever-intensifying spiritual yearnings.
Just as everything seems to be coming together for Smith, several unexpected jolts and twists occur in his life. These events immediately challenge the reliability of his Metaphysical/New Age spiritual beliefs. As he describes these perplexing events and forces, the reader is catapulted into Smith’s heightened search for truth.
Follow the trail as a bewildered Smith and the woman who is soon to become his wife are compelled to come to terms with the nature of good and evil. After surfacing from a series of tumultuous and harrowing incidents, he shares his journey’s startling and inescapable conclusion.
Smith captivates the reader with his folksy personal style. His spiritual adventure is filled with humor, irony and quiet thoughts from his heart. By the end of the book you will feel like you have gained a friend in this fellow-traveler who shares the wisdom he has gleaned along the way.
