This is not just a book about spirituality. It's a celebration of spirituality as a natural and essential element of self-realization and human progress. Each and every one of these poems is a potential epiphany. The poet holds up spirituality as the ultimate goal of all human endeavor and an advance beyond organic life, which is "a carcass of thought used & abandoned, dust to dust, by all that's ever truly us." The highest work of the poet, he says, "is to translate what we blindly see as merely matter back into the Spirit sphere." This book makes much of prayer, spiritual practice, and especially divine Love: "When we live in Love & it's in us, the world explodes in loveliness." Each poem stretches one's thought towards the divine--and is thus a rewarding Spiritual Exercise.
