I read every holy scripture and performed all the rituals of faith. I journeyed to every sacred site and chanted the thousand names of God. I pledged myself at every shrine and gave my life to all that is true . . .
But the moment your lips touched mine I forgot everything I ever knew. ~ from the book
From the Introduction This path is about opening to our divine splendor and infusing the whole of our human self with that boundless light; it’s about bringing our human beingness into alignment with our spiritual nature. We cannot fit the vastness of our spiritual nature into the limited concept we have of ourselves but neither can we discard the human in hopes of reaching the divine. The essential approach then is to divinize the human and humanize the divine, to have our divine essence inform our human life and to have our emerging human qualities give expression to our divine essence. This is the approach to wholeness, the way to experience the fullness and joy of life. “Enlightenment” without full realization of our human nature is a partial enlightenment, an incomplete enlightenment and, truly speaking, no enlightenment at all.
