Banyen's Description: 

 There is a unified call from all religions for the human soul to follow a profound path of love that leads to union with God. Belonging to God examines the commonalities in the scriptures, writings of key mystics and core practices of Christianity, Islam and Hinduism in order to illuminate this clear universal path of divine love. It weaves the common spiritual threads into an elegant theological framework, drawing on recent scientific advances in fractal geometry and quantum physics to emphasize the transforming fire that burns on every level from macrocosm to the microcosm, thereby uniting the human soul with the heart of God. Combining decades of Eastern and Western contemplative practice with scientific research, Belonging to God concludes with twelve principles of divine love that point toward a universal spiritual path of the heart.

Because the mind is the primary obstacle to be overcome in spiritual realization, the various products of the mind—ideas, books, paradigms, philosophies, and theologies—however essential, are all potential traps. The key to authentic spiritual life is direct connection to the Spirit deep within the heart—and following this connection precisely and unwaveringly, rather than any outer prescription of formula The truth is written in our hearts, not carved in stone…
 

There is a significant danger in religious life of becoming overly enamored of the scriptures or theologies as inspiration, philosophy, literature, teachings, or whatever—and missing the One Thing most essential: intensive practice that leads to direct, humble connection to the living Spirit.

Easy to comprehend and uplifting to read, this interfaith journey will appeal to seekers of all faiths interested in the path of love that bridges the world religions, as well as to believers within the Christian, Hindu and Islamic traditions who are eager to learn how, at source, their particular faith intersects in a deep way with other religions. Belonging to God will also inspire students of perennial wisdom, comparative mysticism and the new science, and the host of "spiritual but not religious" seekers who yearn for a universal path of divine love that honors—yet transcends—traditional religions.
