Description

Life is an amazing adventure. Every moment contains remarkable beauty. Yet we are often hypnotized by popular notions that everyday experience will somehow leave us unfulfilled. So we climb mountains and visit holy cities. We search for beauty and yearn for opulence, all the while overlooking the simple truth that "the kingdom of heaven is at hand." If we could just manage to get one eye open to glimpse that heaven, all the things that previously appeared unfulfilling would transform into magnificent opportunities for learning, growing and knowing new and wonderful aspects of reality that previously passed by unnoticed. This book is about opening that inner eye. It is one author's personal exercise in seeing beyond the simple forms of everyday life. It is a study of the invisible dynamics that give life meaning and make transformation possible in all situations, all activities, and all relationships.

Author Biography

R. Scott de Snoo is a pulpit minister, a storyteller, a computer technician, and a writer living and working in Southeastern, Wisconsin. What a man is and does in the world cannot predict the level of impact and the sphere of influence that he unwittingly wields on opinion leaders, educators and organizations. Scott's deeply personal essays have been used by ministers, leaders, teachers and individuals all over the country to move more deeply into asking themselves questions of self discovery-questions that both dim and fuel their faith, inspire their callings and impact lives beyond their own. Scott's inner authority comes not from his unique and enviable childhood led in a "Leave it to Beaver" setting in Waukesha, WI, nor from his experience as a needle-using methamphetamine addict, nor as a drunk, though all those experiences helped Scott discover that neither who he is nor who he was have anything to do with what is going on outside of himself. Scott spent six years in the peacetime Navy, working, brawling, and learning, and discovering the world beyond Wisconsin. When he returned to rebuilding a civilian life and graduating with honors from the University of Wisconsin, the writer and spiritual seeker emerged. Everywhere Scott went, the world was his mirror. Everything he has learned about his nature is your nature. Everything he has recorded about his story is your story.
