Shipment and book content leaves little left to be desired. As far as I'm concerned, this is required reading for anyone interesting in expanding their consciousness. I especially like the essay format but, more importantly, the message is a vital benefactor to human consciousness. I found one or two essays a bit deep for my level of spiritual understanding, but it disturbed the flow of the message very insignificantly.

I just finished reading "Religion in the New Age and Other Essays for the Spiritual Seeker," written by Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters), written 2008 and released in 2009.

I am offering this review simply because the book meant so much to me. It is isn't often, in my experience, that I find a book that can stir my rather sautern heart to soar with joy; and in a few pages stamp my intellectually-puffed ego into the ground and leave me begging for more.

Actually, I avoided this book for a little while, because of the title, which insinuates that the book is about religion, which I found rather off-putting. But alas; I was guilty of the "judging the book by the cover" syndrome. I read it, cover to cover and mauled the pages with my highlighter, notes, underlines, boxes and a word list in the back. In other words, I befriended this book.

Sri Kriyananda starts by clarifying what is happening, why things are changing so rapidly, and why it is that the human expression of community seems to be dividing itself almost like a cell. To simplify his astoundingly accessible interpretation of Swami Sri Yukteshwar Giri's book The Holy Science - we are moving into a planetary shift in which humanity is once again being exposed to a very positive change in which the general upliftment into hope and light are inevitable events. This change will, as usual in the course of events, engender two extreme camps, and an infinite number of in-betweens: There will be those who search for meaning in the old rules and the old way of doing things, and those who eagerly move with the fluid changes in which we find ourselves daily. Not only are the bases for these patterns explained for the average reader, but the practical meanings are also explained. In other words, knowledge is great and good, but what does it mean to me, now? Be prepared for the introduction of some Sanskrit terms, one of which the reader should know right away: Dwapara Yuga. This is the arc of time and spiritual development in which we find ourselves, collectively, at the beginning of now in 2009 (or, 309 Dwapara).

Swami Kriyananda's book addresses the effects of this dispensation on what we believe, how we can square what we seek spiritually with what religion (and religionists) have taught us. He explains that the current trends we can plainly see around us of people being Spiritual without belonging to a set religion is predictable and what it means. There is, after all, hope for those of us who are searching for a Truth in which we can live and move and love. Kriyananda gives concrete evidence and guidelines for learning to love God as God needs to be for us as individuals; then God in ourselves, and from this basis, how to reach out to others as individuals, groups, and the world. In Kriyananda's interpretation of the teachings brought by Sri Sri Paramhansa Yogananda (an Indian mystic who came to America in 1920 to teach the congruity of the original Christianity with the teachings of Sri Krishna), it is not only possible but highly desirable for a modern spiritual seeker to learn to live a life in which trust, love, high thinking and right living are evident in daily life, and not packed nicely away for Sundays or Sabbaths.

This book includes observations from decades of service and teaching on behalf of the late Yogananda. Swami Kriyananda's lifelong duties also included establishing communities around the world, in which people who live out these teachings actually live and thrive together. This is the ultimate test of the teachings, in my regard - that people and families can live out their ideals and values.

There are plentiful instructions and stories on money and how to handle it, how to get along with others, how to love others, and how to behave as a responsible adult. Kriyananda has analyzed business models, leadership, management styles and suggested ways that the order of management within organizations can keep pace with the changes in expectations of people in Dwapara Yuga within the business environment. At one point, the author went into great details in describing how a hierarchy can be ruined quite innocently and without meaning by ineffective leaders, creating workers that do not know to whom they should report, muddled lines of communication, wrecked human relations, and leadership that still must do all the work and is left wondering why. I had to put the book down and read this section again after I digested it, as I had lived this sad story. Years later, I still had no idea what happened - but I will tell you this: it is as if the author had been watching through a magic telescope the goings-on at a certain company in a high-rise building in downtown Seattle. I lived this story and he captured and analyzed it. There's no blame to be had or placed, but the explanation of how businesses can fail with fractured human relations was a joy to my heart.

In short, this book touches broadly on just about every area of life in which one could find himself engaged. And yet, I found very specific examples, stories, and facts to support the living out of the ideals affirmed by this author. I would highly recommend this book for those curious about how metaphysical influences, the teachings of Lord Krishna, business ethics, money handling, developing self-confidence and Original Christianity (as opposed to "churchianity") all come together to support a person who wishes to explore an authentic and congruent life.
