Overview

An account of personal pilgrimage, through the currents of life which refused a smooth sailing. Observing all neutrally, analysing with a depth of understanding of matters historical, geo-political, and religio-societal, the author seeks to answer the perennial question – why is it so? With a spiritual insight drawn from the metaphysics of Hinduism and some significant psychic experiences, he weaves throughout his narrative his speculations on the nature and role of Destiny. He concludes that we are indeed the masters of our future lives; and that, by seeking to merge with the Divine in a humanistic manner, we will ultimately reach that Ocean of Consciousness from which we once arose.

In Part 1, the brutality of the Japanese in Malaya; the superciliousness of the British coloniser; the destruction of the author’s career prospects; his marriage to an Anglo-Australian and their exciting life in Singapore; and her abrupt rejection of him on rejoining her in Australia, are all set within an inter-connected framework of a nation in the making.

Part 2 highlights the racism of White Australia and the denial of equal opportunity, even as the author makes a substantial contribution to civil society, achieving leadership positions there. The spirit world, which wanted him in Australia, may yet be satisfied.
