9781899324125: The Origins of Man and the Universe: The Myth that Came to Life

This book, originally published in 1984, contains Barry Long's extraordinary vision of the structure of existence, evolution and the human mind. It is impossible to adequately describe the scope and range of its subject matter because it encompasses everything we are able to perceive and much that we can only know by spiritual insight. It describes how the human mind works. It contains prophecy - some of which has now come true, in events like 9/11 and recent scientific discoveries. It contains explanations for UFO's and other phenomena. It explains evolution in a way that resolves the more recent debates about Intelligent Design. It provides the perspective for understanding the Big Bang. It is not science. It is not religion. It is what Barry Long called 'the myth that came to life.'

About the Author:

Barry Long (1926-2003) was a writer and spiritual teacher with an original and challenging way of communicating age-old truths.

Born and raised in Australia he started out as a junior journalist and became the youngest-ever editor of a Sydney Sunday tabloid, somewhat prophetically called 'Truth'. At that time spiritual truth was far from his mind, but in his early 30s, the ambitious and successful family man began to question all his values. For some years his inner pain and suffering increased. Eventually, in 1965, he fled Australia and went to India. After many adventures, alone in the Himalayas he experienced what he called a 'mystic death', or the realization of immortality. This was the real beginning of his journey towards 'the unfathomable mystery of God or Life and that other divine mystery of true love between man and woman'.

He wrote of his insights and realizations and for thirty years gave talks and seminars in many countries. He inspired and guided many thousands of men and women without wanting to create a big organization or attract personal fame. He was concerned with the individual, not society. He taught that the way to truth and the reality of love is through direct experience, not belief or imagination; and that freedom comes from taking responsibility for one's own life. He was fulfilled by the prospect that one day someone might hear the truth from him and be able to live it. Evidently very many did. His legacy may be seen in their lives and in the work of some of those he inspired, including other teachers, notably Eckhart Tolle.
