Congratulations to our own Michael Rawlings for publishing his third book entitled, Beyond a Crossroads, earlier this year.
His inaugural novel, 2014, The Enlightenment of Jason Albrecht, represents an unabashed conversation about a search for spiritual identity in a world of circumstance and allegiance. A second offering, 2019, The Silence Remains, A Conversation on Meditation, is autobiographical and details a unique meditation technique.
The most recent novel, Beyond a Crossroads, 2022, is an introspective story that blossoms in poetry and imagination in the telling of a fantastical vision—the journey of a universal Soul. The book poses perennial questions. “Why does anything exist? Is there a reason conveniently forgotten at the imposition of mortal birth?” Beyond a Crossroads offers an answer.
Mr. Rawlings’ spiritual writings are inspired by Western and Eastern contemplatives, including Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Paramahansa Yogananda, Kahlil Gibran, Hermann Hesse, Eckhart Tolle, and Rupert Spira, as well as quantum theory, most notably the work of modern physicist David Bohm.
All of Mike’s books can be found on Amazon.com and other bookselling sites.
