A Seeker’s Journey (by Greg Turek) is an exploration of the interface between the physical world and the supernatural and spiritual. The author moves from classical scientific phenomena, evolution, the bizarre discoveries in quantum physics and Einsteins relativity theory to religion, yoga, mysticism, kundalini and Self-realization. The book also explores meditation and how we can access a state of true meditation or mental silence through the practice of Sahaja Yoga Meditation as taught by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
I have many friends who firmly believe that science has, or will eventually have all the answers to all the questions. They believe that human beings can discard all childish religious traditions and rely entirely on the abilities of the rational mind and science. I personally believe that these friends of mine have been almost literally ‘blinded by science’. Science, in my friends’ opinion, shows that there is no right or wrong, no heaven or hell, that religion is totally an invention of mankind to keep society in control. I must agree with them that most religious institutions are man made and have been structured expressly for the purpose of manipulating and controlling populations. However, I also feel that the essences upon which these religions were founded come from a source beyond the rational mind of man. That is, absolutes do exist in the world around us, for reasons which will become apparent as we proceed further into this book.
