The Origins of Man and the Universe: The Myth That Came to Life
The Myth That Came to Life 2nd ed
Australian author and spiritual teacher Barry Long calls on the depth of his self-knowledge to explore the deep space of the universe, making a connection between self-discovery and scientific enquiry that provokes extraordinary insights into the nature of man and the structure of reality.
Here is a spiritual cosmology set within our contemporary scientific world-view, a creation myth for anyone intrigued by the primal questions: How did it all begin? How and why has evolution brought us to this point? Where, ultimately, do we come from?
This book tells the incredible story of how a spiritual principle became intelligent flesh and blood. We go on a journey into the psyche of man to get behind our individual sense-perception and look into the levels of mind that structure and organize man's place in creation. We see how existence itself is formed and we span the universe to discover the cosmic scheme behind the forces of evolution. We actually look into the ultimate mystery of how nothing becomes something and are drawn step-by-step towards the original point of consciousness -- before time began. Finally, at the end of the book, Barry Long describes the fundamental structures that determine our reality, the original ideas that manifested as our life on earth.
This is one of those books that marks a shift in our collective consciousness, a book capable of changing its readers' world-view forever, and one which will probably stand for decades to come as an influence on the way we all look at life.
