Experience Your Own Divinity

A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe is the perfect book for readers who feel that their religious tradition no longer satisfies their spiritual needs. An elegantly written memoir and meditation, the book explores the many paths of enlightenment available to readers looking beyond today’s churches, temples, and synagogues.
Author Paul Rademacher, a former minister, found that too often church focused too much on eternity—what happens when we die. With this book, he shows that the rightful focus of any true spiritual path is on infinity—how to experience eternity, the fullness of our divinity, in the here and now. Rademacher has written a deeply personal book that often uses biblical texts as a jumping-off point to explore enlightenment outside of any traditional religious institution. His quest for enlightenment ultimately led him to discover the work of the Monroe Institute, where he is now executive director.
A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe is a beautiful book for any spiritual seeker who wants a deeper spiritual life than traditional religious life can provide.
“A delightful and lucid account of opening to the mystical in everyday life . . . a very valuable contribution to the growing awareness that spirituality is not just for the religious.” —Peter Russell, author of The Global Brain and From Science to God
“A marvelous journey. Witty, eminently readable and absorbing, . . . a delight to read.” —Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and Magical Child
Maybe it’s true for all of us when we follow our unique path. Our actions suddenly become precious, even essential. Whether you stumble into it by accident or inch toward it deliberately, I hope you find that sacred calling that is your unique gift. When you discover it, you may be surprised to find that there is a multitude waiting to celebrate with you.
