This book has a lot of insight concerning consciousness and perception. It deals a lot with whole-oriented perspectives, encouraging you to look at the world without separation. It is very unorthodox in its approach to looking at life. Poetry, by famous poets, is occasionally utilized throughout the book to help substantiate what it presents. This is often very effective and startling. This book's views about time, life, death and eternity are very unique and mind-blowing. You find yourself glued to every page. What it presents is rather shocking for the mind to absorb. There is a lot of compassion evident within the book. Sometimes, especially at first, it seems overly serious. However, you can see the need for its seriousness as you continue to read. Finish it to the end, if you dare! It is a bit repetitive too, at times, but the author states that a certain degree of repetitiveness is necessary due to most people's situation of being stuck in the status quo, thus requiring reminding about why they best go beyond it. It is certainly a different caliber of book than what you would normally read. I was "craving more" when I finally finished reading it, wishing that there was more to read. If you want a strong jolt to the system that is different from the norm, then this book is definitely for you. The book contains a lot of sources for further reading/investigation. Does it truly reveal a deep mystery of eternity to the reader? I think that it really does, and in a way one would not ever expect. Highly recommended!

At its heart, this is a book that challenges readers to make a journey of discovery into their lives, motivations, and everyday choices. The author calls on us to become a child of wisdom- to question everything with deep passion, to discover what it’s like to truly live holistically. Throwing aside the shackles of a conditioned mind, a person can become global in their thinking stepping outside of the boundaries we’ve all put in place. As the artificial separations crumble, and we search within, a deep intelligence emerges connecting everything. Beyond patterns, cravings, and divisions someone might experience what the author calls “divine bliss.” This sacred benediction of eternal life is found beyond thought in quietude. As we turn inward, we find it easier to let go and live more fully in the present moment (echoes of Eckhart Tolle). The author asks repeatedly what qualities of mind are necessary for this kind of living. He asks us to go ever deeper abandoning our fears, our egos (the little i), and our grasping ways. True understanding or wisdom is holistic, immediate, and beyond our conditioning. A truly alive person goes in search of truth breaking down walls, developing compassion, and finding silence. Many metaphysical books today incorporate concepts from quantum physics and this author does so as well. He advances his own theory about a cyclic universe that might be viewed alongside current multiple universe theories. Of course, the search for a unified theory is the greatest challenge facing physicists today. Probably what the makes the book unique is the personal stories shared by the author as well as the choice to undertake a discussion of metaphysics while interspersing poetry throughout. The poetry is instrumental in helping to summarize ideas and gives glimpses into the way the author weaves his thoughts throughout the book. Walt Whitman, Stephen Crane, EE Cummings, Emily Dickinson, and many others all have contributions to make to our understanding and grounding of the material. It’s obvious the author has thought deeply about the subjects he’s written about. Some of the best parts of the book are the personal stories he shares. The book succeeds in dropping the mantle at the feet of the reader to really examine their lives and minds. For those who haven’t begun the journey within yet, it offers a strong call to do so. For those of us who already acknowledge our spiritual selves, it offers encouragement and support to continue. I hope many will find and enjoy Thomas Peace’s book.
