They were as different as the creatures of the land are to the creatures of the sea. Their world was “Enchantment”. Darth and Lana adopt an orphan Indian boy and assist a child prostitute. The story is much like a story of a family - but this is a tale from a Life in the Spirit. A mystical tradition in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic ways of life. Buddhism has an equivalent. It is a life after a spirit is born. Strong virtual reality visions form in the mind and the tale unfolds as Lana and Darth create a family life as close to true life as possible. It is one tradition of Life in the Spirit and this novel an insight into this tradition. Darth and Lana, she an Islamic woman of faith, he more or less a Catholic man of faith, are called to develop a Life in the Spirit for an orphan beggar child and a child prostitute. For as long as this takes they accept one another as “husband and wife in the spirit” and look after their children in the spirit – for all we know such children could be angels. An important part of the tradition is for two people to also develop a story of how they met and fell in love. Why do two people do this? The answer is tradition. True life events are often used as the basis for virtual reality type experiences and situations. Parts of the story are from ordinary life as these happened – the story of how Darth came across Lola, for example, is largely from true life. The last chapters are their children now young adults explaining about the Life in the Spirit groups they put together. The explanation is in the form of a chapter about how two people met and fell in love – each group is giving the reader a hint. Those who can understand the hint may be able to find a way to their door and into Life in the Spirit and become part of the mystery. Note that these last chapters are from different Life in the Spirit groups: University (Chapter 28; Roman Catholic); The Way of Love (Chapter 29; Islam: Enchantment Faith Paths), The Way of Wisdom (Chapter 30; Jewish), The Way of Solomon (Chapter 31; Islam: Holy Islam Faith Paths), the Way of Kismet (Chapter 32; Hindu), First Step to Heaven (Chapter 33; Buddhism).
