The Profound Truth of Divine Existence by Paul Brewster
We all have questions about life, death, and the universe at large, but we don’t always ask them, because, when we do, we’re usually unsatisfied or uncomfortable with what we are told. Certain threads of philosophy tell us we are nothing; several spiritual schools tell us we are everything; and science, for the most part, merely tells us about the molecules out of which we are made. These different ways of thinking are hard to digest on their own and even harder to stomach when taken together in one shot – but ‘The Profound Truth of Divine Existence’ by Paul Brewster brings them together in new ways that are intelligent, insightful, and sure to go down with ease. An entirely enthralling text, it thoroughly examines essential dichotomies – such as those between the mind and consciousness, past and present, reality and perception, knowledge and knowing, and the earthly and the divine – and shows how our understanding of them is frequently, and fundamentally, flawed. As it breaks down the walls we’ve erroneously erected to divide our thoughts, it picks up the pieces and puts them in proper place, positioning them alongside bedrocks of philosophy, religion, science, and the humanities, to lay the foundation for a new path that leads to enlightenment, healing, personal wholeness, and peace.
One of the basic premises proffered in ‘The Profound Truth of Divine Existence’ is that the human mind only uses a fraction of its DNA to perceive the universe, whereas Jesus used one-hundred percent of his – so, it follows, if we are to achieve divine consciousness, we must activate all of our DNA, which requires both recalibrated focus and deliberate reflection. The same can be said, in analogous terms, of this book, itself. Most books on the modern market are written to a middle-school reading level, at best. ‘The Profound Truth of Divine Existence,’ however, is not. The breadth of topics covered, the depths to which each is explored, and Brewster’s highly structured writing style all require more attention than we’re used to giving books these days. In other words…this book may be a little heavy, but it’s well worth its weight.
