Book Launch at the Open Center in Manhattan
I am feeling happy about finally bringing to you in book form God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness. It began some 20 years ago in the form of electronic newsletters, and I was surprised that people were exhilarated. About five years ago I began again to think of this enthusiastic response, and so I started the book. It presents an entertaining and mirthful true personal journey about synchronicity and what Larry Dossey MD refers to as "One Mind." Of course, this idea of Mind as something beyond Matter is perfectly consistent with so many great thinkers: Van Gogh, Emerson, Chagall, Watts, Plotinus, Templeton, Rumi, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Whitman, Yeats, Jung, Schrodinger, Bohm, Chopra, and countless others who have likewise resisted materialism.
This book is a true story of a boy's recurring dream (the author) and how he followed it west on Route 80. It is in the genre of Pirsig, Whitman, Kerouac, Steinbeck, and those classic stories about being called on a spiritual journey. But it is also a statement of philosophy of the universe and of human being. If you have ever wondered about synchronicity, intuition, intense creativity, premonition, and uncanny connectedness or even "Oneness," this is an adventure you will not want to miss.
Hope you can pick up a copy on Amazon today. Thanks.
And by the way, I will be doing a book launch at the Open Center, 22 E 30th Street at 5th Ave, on Saturday September 14th at 7-9 p.m. RSVP Here.
"Sometimes things happen that reveal an apparent pattern, plan, and meaning to the workings of the world. When this revelation occurs, it's as if the Universe winks at us as if to say, 'Now you're in on the secret!' The 'secret' is the realization that an infinite, unitary intelligence pervades everything-- what author Stephen G. Post calls IM for Infinite Mind. And that's why God and Love on Route 80 is a poke in the eye of materialism, the numbing ideology that all happenings conform to the so-called blind, meaningless laws of nature. Post's "journey west" is a coming-of-age metaphor for the discovery of ancient truths: that Consciousness is primary, that Mind was "here first," and that love is a kind of metaphysical glue that holds things together and provides a delightful fizz to the whole show. God and Love on Rt. 80 is more than an enchanting, beautiful book; it indicates the kind of awareness that is required if we are to survive the challenges we face as a species-- the awareness of our connectivity and unity with all else, the knowledge that our world is sacred, holy, and worth saving. Thank you, Stephen, for reminding us of this essential truth."
"Stephen G. Post in this highly readable and deeply profound book shares his journey to that which is whole, holy, and healed in all of us. Beyond the secret passages, the dark alleys and ghost filled attics of our individual conditioned and separate minds there is a single infinite boundless awareness that differentiates into all observers, all modes of observation and all objects observed. We can call it Ein Sof, Brahman, Nonlocal mind, God, Allah or the Self. Transcendence to this domain is the experience of absolute love and spontaneous creativity, intuition, insight, and higher vision."
"You must be ready when you open this book. It's a microburst of searching faith in a God of Love (be alert for the "blue angel") and a spiritual and intellectual stance that everything in the universe-- you, me, crickets, galaxies, microbes, stars, life, death-- is connected. For the author who shares his awakening with us, the "blue angel" offers him not only comfort but the bracing challenge to love others with a generous heart way beyond self-aggrandizement. Or, simply put, as God loves. It takes a large and open heart to take in the invitation to faith of this vocation story. I'm more alive and alert now for having read it."
