Soul Seeker: Reflections on a Spiritual Journey from Darkness to the Light shares one man’s reflections on his personal journey to healing, redemption, and spirituality. Describing himself as a former skeptic, his reflections begin with him trapped in a deep depression, resulting from a five-year battle with constant pain from an autoimmune disorder. Feeling hopeless and powerless, he hits the “darkest night of his soul” and decides to end his life. But this book is not about suicide, but rather, redemption.
It begins with an awakening, visionary experience that leads to his healing and fills him with a permanent sense of well-being and an appreciation for life. As a result, he begins a journey to understand his spiritual awakening and his connection to a Higher Power. He examines and reflects in poetry, photography and prose, such things as mindfulness, meditation, spirituality, the soul, purpose and faith, messages of Mother Earth, love, truth, peace, blessings and sorrows, enlightenment, and very much more.
At once a memoir of sorts, Soul Seeker also serves as an inspirational guide for others seeking their purpose in life and the meaning to existence. With clear language, well-explained concepts, this work is agile, easy to read, and full of wisdom from spiritual and metaphysical thinkers of the past two centuries. Perspectus’ reflections look at: humanity’s connection to the consciousness, energy, power, and matter in the universe; that each of our souls make up an even larger godlike consciousness or soul that is and always will be; the presence of a Higher Power within and outside of each of us; the existence of an eternal source of love, compassion, and redemption; and to never fear the dark. For without darkness, we will never find or know the true value of the light.
