In this modern literary wonder, N.C. Reed embarks on an almost too personal journey to find answers to some of life's biggest questions through the revelations of direct and personal experience. Return to Gnosis is compilation of interconnected personal accounts of peak/religious experiences, sacred knowledge and callings the purposeful life. The author has condensed 8 years of writing into less than 100 pages of thought provoking and slightly esoteric stories and reflections that will challenge you to interpret the meaning of daily life as you do the meaning of dreams and the meaning of being fully alive as you do the meaning of life. In a world where eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil is forbidden, the author reenters the garden of the unknown and bites into the apple of life's truths and mysteries. On a quest to rediscover the magic of life, Reed ends up stumbling upon sacred knowledge only accessible in the moments worthy of full presence and participation. The writing style of Return to Gnosis' is a cross between Carl G. Jung, Henry Throreau and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Return to Gnosis is a must Reed for anybody interested in uncovering the sacred knowledge and purpose lying within the fabric of each moment. Most look out the window and see the world lying in ruins and past the point of no return. Yet what keeps us from hearing a calling? What kind of values lead to a person having such a calling? What kind of experiences lead to such values? It is this sacred experience, knowledge and calling that are the ultimate boon of the quest that is this book. This book is for the person looking for questions to turn into quests, ordinary to give up the profound and the profane maps of reality to transform into a living and sacred landscape worthy of our fullest presence and active participation.
