Book Lists Including The Power of Now
Meditation is a common religious and non-religious practice. The end result can be self-development as well as "enlightenment".
In a groundbreaking new book, author Steve McSwain summons a new kind of spirituality—one that truly connects people to God and to each other, regardless of race, nationality, or faith. The survival of humanity is at stake,” writes McSwain. “Virtually every conflict—between nations, religions, even between people within the same religion—has been the inevitable consequence of the narcissistic notion in practically every religion that assumes, ‘We’re right; You’re wrong!’ ‘We’re in; You’re out!’ ‘We’re the chosen ones; You’re not!’ Such insanity must end, if humanity is to survive.” The Enoch Factor is a disarmingly candid memoir on how misdirected religion has become, including Christianity. It calls for an end to religious dogmatism and fundamentalism and the consequential crisis of faith that is driving millions to question lifelong beliefs, to change religions, or to abandon faith altogether. More than a personal odyssey, The Enoch Factor is a testament to the possibility of a spiritual awakening, one that genuinely transforms the human condition. With fresh insights into the teachings of Jesus, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and New Age thought, Dr. McSwain shows readers how to experience a spirituality beyond the distinctions and divisions that have divided people and religions for eons. It is in The Enoch Factor that readers discover what the author describes as “the sacred art of knowing God.”
