If you have ever wondered about the meaning of life, the pursuit of happiness, or are simply on your own spiritual quest, guest reviewer Constance Messmer, an Author, Speaker and Educator, recommends The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life:
It is an intellectual and spiritual work that explains the six significant universal truths woven throughout science, religion and philosophy. These principles draw upon thousands of years of wisdom and are presented in a concise, accessible format. Each principle is defined and has an explanation on its application to life; they are further supported by quotes of wisdom from Buddha, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Stephen Hawking, Jesus.
Russell Anthony Gibbs is a new voice in the world of spirituality/science and enlightenment. His work The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life is a well written and articulate work that helps readers understand the Universe or God, if you will, and our relationship to it. It is concise but amazingly covers the complex principles quite well.
The author’s voice is extremely clear and he supports his arguments with a wealth of meaningful quotes from both scientists and spiritual authorities. This book is a significant summary of the most profound spiritual, scientific and philosophical principles covering the span of human history. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has ever thought about the meaning of life, the pursuit of happiness, or are simply on their own spiritual quest.
INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR RUSSELL ANTHONY GIBBS:
What compelled you to write this book?
Gibbs: My intense desire for answers, understanding and enlightenment compelled me to seek out wisdom and write this book. I first and foremost compiled this information for myself, and now am ready to share it with the world.
What is Espresso Wisdom?
Gibbs: Espresso Wisdom is my brand of communication style. Having read vast amounts of spiritual, scientific and philosophical material, I realized that I prefer to express wisdom in brief, powerful quotes and concise paragraphs rather than complicated, long-winded explanations. Espresso Wisdom is short, strong, rich insight. Like espresso coffee, it is an intense jolt of enlightenment. Enlightenment is an awakening, and Espresso Wisdom is meant to help jump-start you on your journey.
Who influenced you the most in your quest for enlightenment?
Gibbs: Einstein, Buddha, Rumi and Jesus are my greatest influences and their quotes truly speak to me. I also found the channeled material of the entities Seth and Abraham to be amazing rich and useful. These six teachers each have slightly different ways to explain complex concepts. When you hear the different explanations and compare, you can get a much better understanding of their messages.
What’s next, any future books?
Gibbs: This first book is intended as an intellectual overview of enlightenment and to help explain the big picture. It will be the first in a series of eight books in the nonfiction genres of spirituality/science and personal transformation. Each of the six principles will be expanded into its own book and the final book will be an expansion on the meaning and purpose of life. These next seven books will focus much more on how to live the principles. All of these books will provide positive and empowering messages for their readers.
A Deeper Meaning…
The ocean symbolizes God or the Universe. Rumi is revealing that we are not an insignificant part (drop) of God/the Universe but rather all of God/the Universe is contained within us. This is an enormous concept to comprehend.
The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life will be available on April 15, 2016. To read an excerpt and for more Espresso Wisdom, see RussellAnthonyGibbs.com
