Available as Book and E-book:
More than any body of spiritual or philosophic exposition throughout history grounded in what is so, a functional study of subjective experience within an objective reality, so humble and elementary in its sublime esoterica of wisdom and insight it would not be hubris to have called this volatile mass not Re: but along the lines of Lucretius’ The Way Things Are perhaps How to Live, the definitive embodied elocution of a relentless moment of careening evolutionary prerogative characterized by a profound play with humor and grace…each enlivened thought coming unbidden in response to a capitulation in utter faith to an absolute necessity whose cumulative effect is that of magic, alchemy, delight.
