9781475297911: Granddad Looks At Enlightenment

WHICH EXISTS, THIS REALITY OR GOD? Maybe life's an illusion created in a nightmare by the Child of God who should have known better. This is the spiritual memoir of a “man next door” wondering what he’s looking at after spending 50 years in an active spiritual exploration beginning in a Roman Catholic seminary in 1960 and presently sitting outside the boundaries of any specific sect and/or creed and after having learned that certainty is both impossible and counterproductive. He is intrigued by the possibility that God exists and “we” do not, partially because of the “surface” inanity of such a position. Everyone has strange incidents in their lives and he has used a collection of such to explore, dispassionately, this quizzical conclusion. Praise for GRANDDAD... This is incredibly thought provoking. I like how you view life/reality as a dream, and your story telling narrative to bring us to that conclusion. [Sana] ...just loved it, truly did. You write from the heart that is obvious, but you write so it touches my heart ... when I say heart I do not refer to airy fairy I refer to honesty ... CONGRATS on a well crafted read that opens up so many questions in me and answers many also [Denise] What can I say? Utterly absorbing; if god is perfect then imperfection cannot exist; a dualistic world, good and evil, up and down. Hell cannot exist if god is a perfect creator. Guilt, where does it come from? Why? A device to tie us; keep us away from god? 'Real' world? Dream life; delusion or illusion. Your way of thinking [is] completely new to me. I don’t think that deeply about anything! Singularity reminds me of Teillhard de Chardin; everything moves towards perfection you deserve your backing for sheer mental stimulation. [Micheal] [Authonomy writers: reviews]

From the Author:

As I mention elsewhere, I have spent more than fifty years in spiritual pursuit. I sincerely want to reach enlightenment which I feel cannot occur within the parameters of this reality.  However, one can move oneself to proximity.  I've never planned to be a spiritual teacher and hence I've been reluctant to publish. But, with publishing I open myself up to widespread instruction from those who read my words and are moved to help me grow.  I, in turn, hope that my modest words in some way return the favor.This book talks about my journey and at times grows philosophical.  That is who I am.  I ground my philosophy in the grit of my life and try to be a traveling companion sharing the road with my brothers and sisters also seeking enlightenment.

About the Author:

I am a 66 year old neighbor who has been writing for most of his adult life. I've tried many things: I've written program notes for professional/Equity theater where I've also been a volunteer dramaturge and an assistant director. I've been a playwright for 15 to 20 years. I have written documents for both state and local government. These are things that one does because it is necessary to marry interest with practicality as much as possible. But, something else has given me the greatest satisfaction. Beginning in the mid-1970s and continuing until they were raised, I was an "at home" parent. I did not undertake this task as a temporary assignment; rather, as a life choice at a time when such a choice was completely misunderstood. In all of these endeavors I have been seeking to understand my underlying spiritual core. All of this has informed who I am, and gives me a unique perspective. It might make me a worthwhile traveling companion.
