Symbols, Meaning, and The Sacred Quest : Spiritual Awakening in Jewish, Christian and Islamic Stories
by Andrew Cort




Overview -
Fed up with Violence, Hatred, and Bigotry? In a world where religious differences often trigger hatred and violence, here is a book that celebrates the Beauty, Decency, Wisdom and Unity of all our traditions.
The "real" purpose of religion is "not" to supply a questionable historical narrative, or to teach moral rules that no one can follow, or to command its followers to believe a lot of fantastic claims that defy all scientific logic.
"The REAL purpose of religion is to present a great Wisdom Teaching -- through Allegory, Symbol and Metaphor -- that teaches our souls the inner psychological and spiritual steps that must be taken to achieve spiritual awakening and communion with Divinity. "
"The "Return to the Promised Land," for example, is a symbolic elucidation of the soul's return from inner material slavery (called "Egypt") to spiritual freedom and enlightenment (called "Canaan")."
Along the path there are many steps, many adventures, many trials, and many joys. The different ways that the story is shared by different religions and different cultures is a testament to the "magnificent human imagination "But the underlying commonality of meaning and purpose that unites the stories, the cultures, "and us," is even more striking
What will "SYMBOLS, MEANING, AND THE SACRED QUEST" do for YOU?
* It will reveal the hidden method of SPIRITUAL AWAKENING that lies buried in the ancient stories;
* It will open your Heart to deeper levels of TRUST, UNDERSTANDING and COMPASSION;
* It will give you hours of "ENTERTAINMENT" and "PLEASURE" as you discover and rediscover the spellbinding tales and legends from around the world - and read them with fresh eyes and ears
