The Sliced Land and Other Stories
THE SLICED LAND AND OTHER STORIES offers exceptional narratives based on true events that trace the declines and the ascents of what constitutes human nature and the nature of things. Themes and issues of war and war crimes, the nature of faith, integral consciousness and submission to God's will, and encyclopedic plagues of homelessness, human and environmental disconnection and degradation are woven throughout for the reader's contemplation. Through glimpses of contemporary family estrangements, fleeting love and self-betrayal, as well as the negligence and the ethical vacuum of the conventional medicine of our times, the book raises many universal questions and renders penetrating insights of the contrasts and degrees in human vicissitude, which can inspire thoughtful individuals to live more constructively and graciously in a muddled and traumatized world. This can always be achieved, the author asserts, by taking refuge in belief based on argument and investigation, hope preserved within the love of truth, and aspirations propelled by the power of the awakened universal vision of primal Wholeness.
