Frank P. Daversa takes an in-depth look at Spirituality in the 21st Century to help readers enhance their understanding of spirituality, life, and the world. This spiritual read focuses mainly on growth—in particular, spiritual growth. As such, it covers many topics, from belief in God to spiritual paths and from truth to spiritual awareness.
One of the concepts Frank highlights is that man begins life with a default destiny, a spiritual path that God has chosen for him as He sees fit. However, man possess the gift of free will, which enables him to change his default path for better or worse during the course of his lifetime, in turn creating a new path for himself. He stresses that in order for man to rise above his default path, he must grow spiritually.
Readers will find a down-to-earth approach for understanding spiritual knowledge. They will discover the five principles of spiritual enlightenment and default spiritual paths (as mentioned). Frank also discusses oneness and how to experience it. To unite the body, mind and soul, man must:
- Accept God into his life and Jesus Christ as his savior;
- Complete his formal education;
- Learn more about himself, his health and mental well-being;
- Learn more about the needs of others;
- Learn more about the natural environment in which he lives.
He also makes readers aware of the challenges that may weaken our spirits, but imparts his knowledge on how to conquer them. For example, he contends there are three critical lessons Earth needs to overcome in this century: global warming, overpopulation, and environmental degradation. Also, couples need to develop (at least) the first three principles of spiritual enlightenment before engaging in a love relationship, then pursue the last two thereafter in order to form a stronger union. For a detailed description of these and other topics, read his latest book (pictured above).
Frank claims that although many of his concepts are revolutionary, he leaves it to the readers to decide whether they represent truth or fiction. However, he knows that readers will view spirituality and the world in a better light when they read Spirituality in the 21st Century.
