God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness
God and Love on Route 80 is the highly entertaining true story of a cross-country road trip and a spiritual journey that led one young man to the discovery that a powerful force carries us toward our destinies. Written by Professor Stephen G. Post. this book touches on the essential meaning of life and the messages we may all miss unless we begin paying close attention.
The story feels to me: wise, gentle, important, surprising and enjoyable… There are a few illuminating medical & scientific studies closely examined & explained within its pages…
If I could, I’d gift this book to EVERYONE, including you right now… because I’d wish for you a similar connection to the messages that I experienced…
In the meantime, please get this book, and enjoy reading it… and perhaps you too will want to pass it on & pay it forward.
Know that this book isn’t really about “God” per se – There are beautiful & profound lessons… and is perfect for those who don’t necessary “resonate” with GOD as such, and it’s also perfect for those who do.
As I reflected whilst I was reading… my mind wandering… I had tears of joy, remembering, peacefulness…
It has fanned a flame & reignited commitments I’ve made with the healing I’ve been doing for decades as a therapist, author, teacher, coach & retreat leader.
