In this book, I mix many beliefs, theories and experiences in both scientific and religious ways. Through a composition of short stories and dissertations, I do the best I can to make it readable, varying it from relaxing and rational to emotional, yet exciting explanatory principles. This book is about my own search for the truth and a voyage to self-discovery. I go to the light of it to return to my own heart, my Home.
Life is too short ... inviting us to look upon a metaphysical approach with an entertaining and exotic travel throughout the feedbacks and many insights the book offers to us. My intent is to reunify--from the Latin, religare i.e. Religion-Science and Religion, which I believe were once only One Truth, until the Church at the Medieval Age--The Age of Darkness--started to monopolize the truth to manipulate the mass. Then we passed through the Renascence--The Age of Enlightenment and ideas started to pop up into our heads. Now, in our Modern Age--The Age of Light, that is, Electronics, we went from one extreme to another.
I look to my right and see Science. Some things I agree, to which I say Yes. To other things, I say No. I'm not completely skeptical, neither am I an atheist. I want to believe. On the other hand, I am not a devotee. I look to my left and see a blind devotion with no need to be explained. I need explanations.
The way in the middle of both, the TAO, that's my Path. I look forward to what is ahead of me, examining the beauty of the camino, but always making sure I'm not stepping in another's shoes. I keep beholding the horizon in front of me while directing my eyes to Eternity. I drink from the ethereal philosophy of Heaven. In the end, you will see that life is no more, no less, than a dream made of pure poetry.
