How often do we suppress our innate capacity and desire for love, understanding, and unity, and instead allow fear, domination, and discord to rule? The endless power struggles driven by our illusion of self-importance lead not only to much misery, but also cause harm in more subtle ways to those who appear to win these struggles. Can we discover a better way of living?
At its best, spirituality offers us a way of reconnecting with the source of all reality, but too often even this message of hope becomes sterilized and too superficial for those who demand deeper reflection, refusing to condemn their own rationality. And while science can lead to positive contributions to society, providing new ways of helping humanity, the earth, our fellow creatures, and perhaps extending our life on this planet, it can too readily dash away any hope, purpose, or meaning to being alive in the first place. But genuine spirituality is not opposed to rationality, and the emerging new science transcends the parochialism and falsity of crude materialism.
By pioneering a trail through the convoluted maze of academic philosophy and misrepresentations of science, The Eternal Law is able to dig deep into the metaphysical roots of many of our shared concerns as a species. It not only offers a pathway to clarifying the confusion found in quantum physics, but also illuminates how unity, beauty, and truth are foundational to all of science. Perhaps more importantly, the many examples of extraordinary visionaries throughout history, from Plato to Newton, Einstein, Heisenberg, and many more, offer inspiration for how to approach any complex issue in a way that combines intuition and rationality, insight and logic, mysticism and science.
While The Eternal Law was not written to be a bestseller, it does flow from an intent of sharing such difficult ideas in a way that is accessible to those who are willing to put in the effort to understand them. But it is still not an easy book. It is foundational: it is for those who are preparing to become the pioneers of the future in the expansion of consciousness. And it is a helpful reminder to those who already are.
