    a profound little volume

    Phillip Jones is a tender friend to the whole human soul. His writing transcends terms like 'Eastern,' 'Western,' or 'Indigenous.' The word 'satchitananda' comes to mind. I felt the breathing and heartbeat of God when I read this profound little volume. We all lose someone we all die. For Jones, death is the Great Intimacy, the return, the birth from time into eternity. Jones as such is a midwife of God, supporting our awakening and return to our Source. Read this book and absorb its reverence. I want Jones present at my death!
