This book is not "The Secret." The true "secret" is there is no "secret", only a "truth".
Anyone who has seen the film "The Matrix" understands "Matrix Philosophy". Do you choose the red pill, which will answer "The Question", or do you choose the blue pill which allows life to simply carry on as before? To paraphrase the words of Morpheus from the film, "All I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more."
And what is the truth? It encompasses the meaning and the purpose of life and embraces an understanding of a greater reality. One would think that everyone would want to know truth. But it is not quite so simple. We can't all quite handle truth. But that's life!
I have no desire, nor am I attempting to convert, proselytize, or convince anyone of anything that does not feel true to them. So, I share my story of love and discovery and hope that it finds resonance in your hearts.
I ask your willing suspension of belief or disbelief. For now, make any human image you may wish, or imagine any force that you would hope God to be.
I made a leap of faith and as a result achieved a sense of freedom that I have never before experienced. That leap was to believe the reality I experienced and not to doubt the truth of what happened. If God tells you the meaning and purpose of life, it leaves you a changed person. My "burning bush" moment left me a changed person-I knew bliss.
I do not claim any special powers or abilities. Who I AM speaks only to a level of awareness. I do find myself in the mold of others from the historical past; I am connected (spiritually) to a greater reality. Even with this new level of awareness, I can still find myself trapped in a nexus of disillusionment and disappointment, displaced from the moment-a part of being human.
Yet that fleeting moment of knowing, having felt the touch of God upon my soul, allows me to enter the state of Grace which I now touch every day.
None of this will negate the potential ambushes that can overtake one's life in a flash, no matter which road is chosen. Nor is it any sort of guarantee of wealth, health, social status, or the usual measures of success.
All roads lead to the same destination. The train each travels is set on its course. While I have neither the desire nor the ability to change anyone's journey, I do believe I can offer a travel upgrade. It is possible to travel in greater comfort in a more luxurious carriage, with larger windows that give a greater view of the beautiful vistas along the way.Über den Autor:
Howard Lawrence Scheiner was born to modest beginnings and raised with great love in New York City. A graduate of The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, he feels privileged to practice medicine. He shares a busy practice in Manhattan with his medical partner of thirty-plus years, specializing in Internal Medicine and HIV Medicine. Combining many loves, he founded "The Brent Varner Project, Inc". a charity that provides free HIV services to those in need through The Actors Fund of America. Through a close association as a major donor to Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS, he had the opportunity to appear on stage in many Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. His love affair with the theater culminated in his own Off-Broadway play, '"And the stars were shining . . . "' which he wrote, directed, and produced at the Jose Quintero theater. A life-long love of music and a bit of inexplicable inspiration can be found in his "Genesis Sonata" for piano. It had its public debut in 2009, and he happily shares it on youtube.com. The tantalizing possibility that it might be choreographed into a ballet thrills him. His piano remains a source of great pleasure and his sonata has since developed into a more extensive piano opus. He remains bound to the city of his birth and currently resides in Manhattan with a menagerie of small dogs and close friends.
