In a series of short studies enlivened by color illustrations, Henk van Oort takes the reader on a spiritual journey through a variety of topics that relate to everyday experience. With chapters as diverse as “The Human Will,” “Quantum Physics,” and “Good and Evil,” the common theme is the dynamic nature of human consciousness.
This unique spiritual travel guide opens surprising new vistas to the ever-changing reality in which we live, helping us understand who we really are as human beings. The author demonstrates how our knowledge of the world is in a constant process of evolution. Tying together the disparate elements of the book is the inexhaustible spiritual source from which we receive inspiration and energy for life. Van Oort shows that our familiar material world has its origin in the world of spirit. With a focus on Rudolf Steiner’s insights and supplemented with the work of many other thinkers, Your Spiritual Journey reveals new pathways in our life’s earthly adventure.
