Balboa Press, non-fiction
With the burning need to share insights on the nature of consciousness and reality gleaned from a combination of extensive reading, his first spontaneous mystical experience, real-world experience and meditative states, author Brendan D. Murphy pens his new book "The Grand Illusion: A Synthesis of Science and Spirituality-Book One" (published by Balboa Press).
"I saw that lying at the root of the world's troubles was a fundamental ignorance as to the true nature of self, consciousness and reality," Murphy says. "My task, therefore, was to do what I could to remedy the situation to whatever extent possible by showing people how incredible a human being is and can be in this integrated holographic (and sometimes bizarre) universe of ours."
"The Grand Illusion" is a mind-blowing and perception-altering tour de force through the world of paranormal phenomena, consciousness research, related physics, spirituality, and suppressed and fringe science - all woven together to present a revolutionary worldview based on consciousness and the unity of all life.
When asked what he wants readers to take away from his book, Murphy answered simply, "The knowledge that we are immortal consciousness with tremendous power and creative potential, and that paranormal abilities and phenomena are real and a natural part of life and who we are; that we are still evolving and can consciously participate in and accelerate the process, both individually and collectively."
