The most ordinary of days offers us the extraordinary opportunity to connect with our greater purpose, revealing aspects of the eternal and our place in the universe. We are all on our own heroic journey-we just need to realize it.
In Beneath the Turning Stars: Glimpses of the Sacred in a Very Profane Life, Frederick Keogh presents thirty-five essays that reveal the guidance of a powerful spiritual source. Some are religious in tone. Others are accounts of everyday events made significant by a change in perspective.
From a feeling of dread and destiny in the jungles of Venezuela to memories of rainy days, Keogh reminds us that the world is full of sacred moments, if we only stop to look. He leads us through stories of sudden confrontations with mortality and eerie encounters with serendipity, all true and all focused on how the world and our inner lives affect our spirituality.
By turns enlightening, melancholy, and joyful, Keogh's essays are more than reflections-they're an invitation to see the world as it was meant to be seen: an awe-inspiring realm in which we can explore what the eternal plan has in store for us.
