An active cognizance of our influence on the big-picture flow of creation, in which we all participate, is the responsibility of every human being.

Many of my own thoughts and feelings regarding spirituality align with Rob Taylor's (I believe in Oneness and Connectedness of Life), so I found in this book much wisdom and eloquence. I certainly appreciated the broader outlook, the bigger picture of the division and damage we as humans inflict upon ourselves, each other and life on the planet as a whole. However, on the other hand, whilst much more gentle and inclusive than organised religion, I still found the presentation of information in t ...more

This book is really well-written and was a good read I really enjoyed this new perspective on human life. This book is so well thought out and put together. It was a really good read.

The book inspires multiple readings, whether you steep yourself in t ...more

It called me to examine the energy I draw into myself as well as the energy I wish to put out into the world. At a time when one can become frustrated with the direction they see our political and religious institutions moving in, Rob Taylor gives us hope that if we do our own inner work, we can make a difference. I recommend thi ...more
