Beyond Religion – The Personal Search for Truth – Barbara Mayer
Read Contents & page excerpts
What Readers are Saying about Beyond Religion:
Finally a book that simply and eloquently describes what so many of
us have been asking. What is spirituality? What does it mean to be
spiritual? What does it mean to be religious? Can you be both or do
you have to be one or the other? In these times of great uncertainty
our world “yearns for peace”. Our souls scream out to us to live
simply, with more compassion and grace. So many times we ignore the
call in our frantic pace to get through each day. Barbara Mayer
brilliantly take us through a process where we can connect with our
true self without sacraficing what many of us hold most dear, our
religious teachings. She encourages readers to take the next step
beyond the “organized belief systems, rituals and manmade dogmas..
which identify every religion to a place of living in intention,
compassion and service”, The Ultimate Truth, the Divine Mystery,
“what real holiness is- wholeness”.

As more people find
themselves questioning or leaving organized religions, Beyond
Religion -- The Personal Search For Truth, a new book by
Barbara Mayer, provides answers for spiritual seekers of our time.
From her thirteen years as a Roman Catholic nun, and a
lifetime of studying Eastern and Western religions and belief
systems, Mayer offers a reader-friendly book to encourage and
enlighten those who believe "there must be more" to the search for
personal spirituality and truth. From her own journey, she offers
personal insights into religious doubt and the dark night of the
soul. She helps lead others toward spiritual maturity and personal
transformation, offering hope and meaning to those ready to move
beyond patriarchal religious dictates.
Beyond Religion looks at the Axial Age, the Quantum,
and the growing awareness of the human species. Mayer asks us to
accept the concept of Bifurcation Point -- the Point of No Return --
when we must choose to move beyond what no longer serves us and take
to heart the Divine Voice in Scripture, "Behold, I make all things
new." She asks us to allow ourselves the joy and the right to make
ourselves new in this exciting time of growing consciousness and
Beyond Religion also includes chapters on
understanding one's religious roots, an in-depth consideration of
Jesus and the Christ Mind, feminine energy, modern mysticism,
different religions of the world, quantum and non-linear thought,
meditation, healing and personal spiritual growth.
Mayer is also a poet and her special gift at the end of each
chapter is a poem which captures the essence, the message and the
emotion of the journey to oneness with God, Truth and creation.
Beyond Religion helps us see ourselves as modern
mystics of action and compassion, as agents of peace and not
planters of seeds of war, destruction, selfishness and greed. It is
an invitation to become a real blessing to ourselves and to the
world around us. The message of Beyond Religion is that this is OUR
time to, as the Zen saying advises, "Be still, and understand what
you already know."
Beyond Religion? A must read for seekers of all levels, and a
glorious source of empowering joy!
