Mark Gerard Craigabout this book: There are five key questions that all human being's ponder in the course of their life. These are: Where did I come from? (origin); Who am I? (identity); What shall I do? (purpose); What does it all mean? (meaning) and where am I going? (destiny). Religion, philosophy and science all offer versions of a response to these key questions. "The Five Jewels" too, offers a version of a response which breaks free of the strictures of sterile doctrine and stock standard answers presented by various academic disciplines whether religious or secular in essence. Experience is the true litmus test for all responses to these five questions and unless human experience is the starting point all intellectual pondering is quite meaningless.
• "A deep and powerful read. Reminiscent of Alan Watts and Eckhart Tolle. Highly recommended" (Amazon Customer Review).
A most important book for the one tired of and disenchanted with religion and its confessionally conditioned standard responses. Truth is not out there, as some may claim. It is to be found within.
