With windows to his past used as a backdrop to the main purpose of his new novel, Reflections of My Higher Self, Joseph Danna's introspective odyssey about the crossroads of psychology with spirituality is educational, as it ascends the heights of metaphor in a journey through alternate realities. The roots of human identity are examined and shown as either based in what is true about us as universal beings, or in what is false. The writing explains how the whole trajectory of our perception, especially of others, begins with how we see ourselves. But the story reveals that how we see ourselves is maligned due to an unconscious error, which reflects as chaos in the world. The only remedy for this error of humanity is the truth, which for protagonist Salvatore DiSanti and his troubled past, escalates to magnificent displays of his innocence. The presentation is not only read, but felt, as it shows all life as of One Essence, and how beneath every conflict we are facets of a greater whole with a larger purpose. Once described as The Shack on steroids, for the world to grasp the universal principles displayed here would be the most profound step humanity could now take.
