Let’s Get Started

Once upon a time, people embraced the supernatural. They didn’t split their reality into the physical and spiritual. This went beyond interconnecting these two perspectives. It wasn’t even two sides of the same coin. It was one holistic reality. To them every aspect of life was divine.

Then humans got smart—or so they thought. They applied reason to their reality. They separated what they could observe, explain, and quantify from the abstract and mysteriousness of the sacred. They divided their existence into perceptible and ethereal. They separated secular from spiritual and ordered their lives accordingly.

The physical realm—the secular—celebrated the tangible. It occupied most of their conscious reality. People relegated the heavenly-focused aspect of life to Sunday mornings and a few other select times, if at all. They became enlightened—or not so much.

Yet today we witness a renewed interest in the otherworldly. People are increasingly open to the supernatural, the intangible reality that transcends our material world. For many, the divide between secular and sublime is vanishing. They, like me, see a hallowed element in every aspect of their lives. They’re reclaiming the notion that every part of life has a revered component. It’s a renaissance of reality, commingling the physical realm with the ethereal.

This book celebrates that renaissance.

Join me in celebrating the everyday spiritual aspects that make up my life. Then you can embark on a journey of rediscovering the everyday spirituality of yours.
