The Joy of Being
About the Book
This is a rare, beautiful, book of profound spiritual guidance. It has a new and timely message of hope for the world. Author, Mark Kumara, who lives in Western Australia and runs a meditation and healing centre, credits the book to Sanat Kumara, his higher self, who, he says, made himself known to him in a vision, informing him he was a member of the Earth Council, and telling him to call himself Kumara. Compassion, a sense of humour, and a healthy dose of common sense, shines through this book. It addresses everything you might like to know about life on earth, its meaning, its purpose, who you really are - and where you are going. Sanat Kumara unravels the true meaning of love, and relationships, piercing not a few misconceptions along the way that may startle you. It has the rare distinciton of being written in a way that Westerners can follow. The insights are inspirational and there are simple exercises given to help you realise your own light within yourself. It unveils the truth behind all religions, revealing the mystery of God, in a clear and succinct manner, without sentimentality and without cant. Sanat Kumara clearly states that death is a total illusion and that joy is the reality of existence. His words pierce the fog surrounding the longing of humanity for something greater that itself and the part religions have played. He gets to grips with the paradox of the God within and the God without, with the Christian Trinity, and new age teachers. This is no mean achievement, giving this book an appeal to new age seekers as well as members of established churches because it has much in it for both. Its message is universal. It pushes back boundaries and powerfully enjoins the reader to examine his or her beliefs, whilst, at the same time, honouring the fundamental truth of a loving universe. Above all, this is a book for those who might dare to believe the God is within themselves, as themselves. It is a book with a powerful message: reading it, you might find yourself tingling all over. It has the ring of truth about it.
