We often experience a profound longing for a spiritual connection beyond ourselves. This is best expressed in Augustine's "our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee." We sense that there is a something missing in our lives but have a hard time putting our finger on exactly what it is.
Herman Hesse's Siddhartha is a great illustration of the search for spiritual fulfillment without a firm conclusion. Siddhartha tried many different pathways and touched on what he sought many times but did not recognize what he had achieved. We likewise seek to fill this longing in different ways. The most common is through religious institutions but, sadly, these efforts have become increasingly disappointing for many due largely to unsubstantiated claims made from the pulpits about the Scriptures. Yet, these Scriptures represent a treasure trove of insight garnered over the centuries if read for what they represent.
In Search of the Divine does not pretend to be able to provide a roadmap to a definitive search but it does provide hints that can lead to an expanded vision and connections to the transcendent.
