The author of this book offers a unique approach to the discovery of meaning and purpose, which he suggests involves the transformation of our lives by realizing our own infinite potential. He writes of the search for the One, which has been passionate necessity of mystics of all faiths throughout the ages. While speaking from the heart, he does not deny the value of reason and mind, but suggests the necessity of penetrating beyond to that center within, which is stable and firm and amid the changing universe.

Dr. Hugh Shearman, an honor graduate in history, in which he earned the Ph.D. degree, has long been interested in philosophical and metaphysical subjects. He is the author of some twenty titles, which include The Purpose of Tragedy and Desire and Fulfillment.

From Chapter XIX - Immortality (page 129:

" The One remains, the many change and pass.

Heaven's light for ever shines; Earth's shadows fly.

Life like a dome of many-coloured glass

Stains the white radiance of eternity. "

  • Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 - 1822).
