The Hitchhiker's Guide to Enlightenment
The Hitchhiker's Guide is an exposition of mysticism and spirituality themed on my extensive experience thumbing around America - between 1968 and 1980 I did 60 to 70,000 miles. Probably half of that was done without money. It was a great test of faith, the first and last mile on the highway to enlightenment. Part of the motivation that got me on the road had to do with finding a commune to be part of, where, in the event, I spent 5 years. Living communally provides insight into the great enlightenment potential inherent in being together as a group. The book also delves into recreational drugs as part of opening one's mind to higher planes of existence. Seven of the book's ten chapters are based on specific hitching adventures, the remainder fill out my life story and beliefs. It's a personal memoir which, in addition to mysticism and the occult, focuses on strong advocacy for the environment and reflects my many years doing hands-on community recycling.
