The world is visibly moving from bad to worse, if we can trust our senses. But can we trust senses that lie to us about such ordinary everyday occurrences as sunrise and sunset? Talbot Mundy says no and encourages us to go forward to the beginning the sunrise of life, and awaken not our senses, but our consciousness. He challenges us to discover, and prove to ourselves, that joy is stronger than sorrow, love is stronger than hatred, hope is stronger than despair, energy is stronger than sloth, and good is stronger than evil. I Say Sunrise is a joyous book, all the more remarkable because the joy that fills its pages was cultivated, the author reports, in the face of great struggle, shame, and grief. On the surface, I Say Sunrise is a statement of Talbot Mundy s philosophy of life, a metaphysical classic. But beneath the surface, it is more than this alone. It teaches us how to fill life with joy, so that we can triumph over struggle, shame, and grief. It is also a direct assault on the limitations of mass consciousness, describing how the popular beliefs of society color individual thinking, and what we can do to reclaim proprietorship over our own convictions and attitudes. Along the way, there are chapters on death, reincarnation, the use of money, love, and prayer. This is a powerful book; it awakens us from sleep. As Mundy writes: What is beyond the darkness? Some say chaos and darker night. I Say Sunrise.
