BlueInk ReviewsThere is a short poem attributed to Sufi poet Rumi that translates roughly as, "Somewhere between ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." This clear and straightforward notion of God's love and lack of judgement is reflected in The Age of Divinity.
Ball writes well and gets big ideas across with a gentle push. While looking at the difference between facts and truth (Facts are changeable; truth is not"}, he uses his hair as an example. It was black when he was young, but is gray now and may fall out altogether with age. The facts about his hair changed over time, while truth is permanent. The point? While the facts that we learn greatly enhance our lives, the truth that we learn teaches us how to live our lives," and that's where personal ethics and spiritual development can grow.
Here's a vision of heaven readers can work toward, and attain, while still among the living, set on an authentic foundation of a belief in a loving God. Readers looking for the field in Rumi's poem may find a road map in this humble volume.
