From the Publisher

Where is the world going? Do the people have a clear direction of life? The world constantly talks about creating peace in the world. Yet, it still practices the business of solving its problems through wars, fighting and killing. Governments are ineffective and leading their people in the wrong direction. Many books have offered theories to fix the ills of the world by promoting peace, but none have inspired people to take action. My book is written by a commoner written for the people from an average person’s perspective.

No, I am not a great, famous scholar, religious or political leader --nor an infamous person of the world, for that matter. I am only a servant of God, inspired to do God’s work as an Earth Angel in His service. I have no strict political or religious ties. My political philosophy is genuinely “off the scale.” I am not left or right, liberal, moderate, or conservative. My spiritual belief is that all religions are an inspiration of God. So, this book is written from a totally independent, universal point of view.

This book is, however, an expansion of my science fiction novel, Kami Jin, which touched upon various social issues of the world through the section of the protagonist’s “Sermons on the Mount” sequences. A Vision for Humanity was written in response during an author’s interview where I was encouraged to continue to “move mankind in the right direction.” The goal of this book is to bring humanity together in common dialogue – to create the grandest vision for the world.

The goal of the book is to get readers to understand themselves in a balanced approach. First by understanding how people and religion formed the basis of humanity in the world and in history. Then the book focuses on the individual – how each person relates spiritually to the holy trinity (The Father, Son and Holy Spirit) through the “Inner Trinity” which make up each individual – the child-self, adult-self, and the child-self. Unlike other books, I have attempted to establish a psycho-spiritual connection between individual and spirituality not using any particular form of religion. It was a result of a spiritual awakening. As I have explained in the first chapter of my book, my belief is that God had influenced the creation of all religions on Earth. As we are connected to each other through our genetic structures, so are we connected through various religions through God. But, my purpose is not to impose my will or spiritual beliefs of God, but moreover to move mankind so that he can create the grandest vision for humanity on Earth in the physical realm as it is in the spiritual world.

I do this largely by talking about a lot about social issues and problems facing the world today – especially in the United States – particularly with politics and religion. But I also talk about education, labor, and social equality and justice, particularly on LGBT issues. In moving mankind in the right direction, I also believe that it is important that humanity must change its attitudes towards accepting and treating everyone equally without regard to race, color, and sexual orientation. Everyone has a gift to contribute to this “grand tapestry on Earth.”

ELIZABETH DIAS What has surprised you about the response to your newest book, Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living? Even in early 2016, people were so weary—sore inside. In the 24/7 news environment, people are bombarded with the same story of what is catastrophic and corrupt and failing 25 times before lunch. They start to internalize that not as news but as the norm. An effect I see on people in conversations that came up around the book is, there are actually so many beautiful, generative things happening in the world. How did America get to this place of such divi

Which Comes First, Big Cities or Big Gods?

Warriors among the Kwara’ae, a collection of tribal communities indigenous to the Solomon Islands, sacrificed pigs before battle. The tradition granted the combatants, so the belief went, aid from heroic ancestral spirits—like the mighty A’orama, a fierce fighter in Kwara’ae folklore. For every man who prepared to shed blood, a hog met its end.1 Any non-superstitious observer might regard this ritual as a costly habit. Why give offerings when one can eat them instead? This puzzle is not unique to the Kwara’ae. Why pray? Or erect and attend churches, mosques, temples? Or observe holidays and fa

To Understand Religion, Think Football: Sacred beliefs likely arose out of prehistoric bonding and rituals.

The invention of religion is a big bang in human history. Gods and spirits helped explain the unexplainable, and religious belief gave meaning and purpose to people struggling to survive. But what if everything we thought we knew about religion was wrong? What if belief in the supernatural is window dressing on what really matters—elaborate rituals that foster group cohesion, creating personal bonds that people are willing to die for. Anthropologist Harvey Whitehouse thinks too much talk about religion is based on loose conjecture and simplistic explanations. Whitehouse directs the Institute o
