Banyen's Description: 

Actor John Maxwell Taylor uses his forty years’ experience in spiritual self transformation to show readers how to master life by learning to master oneself and to harness the energy of higher power to surmount the chaos of the modern world. He draws on his incredibly varied background—from European pop star, to student of Paramahansa Yogananda, Gurdjieff, Mantak Chia, to resident at the pioneering Findhorn Community, to playing Carl Jung on stage for many years—to invite readers to awaken from their collective trance and to claim the transformative power that is their birthright.

Taylor builds on his previous book, The Power of I Am, to offer a potent array of practical tools, stories, and life lessons that help us reconceptualize the events in our lives, the way people respond to us, and the impact we have on the world.

While we work together for that better future, in our everyday lies we need to have at our disposal consciousness-based tools and strategies for addressing the sometimes colossal ignorance we face in an age of rudeness and unearned entitlement, courtesy of a raging global narcissism epidemic. For this we shall explore “Sociological Aikido,” a melding together of practical techniques to use in everyday encounters when dealing with people who may be egotistical, difficult, or projecting negative energy our way. In these pages you can learn how to be a real-world Obi-Wan Kenobi and defuse potentially disruptive situations solely through the power of pure thought and energy.

He demonstrates how, by understanding the powers active in creation, we can become instruments through which higher power continually flows to advance our evolution toward consciousness. In doing so, we not only transform ourselves, we become powerful agents for changing the world.

Readers learn how to:

  • Use higher power to redirect the world around one to one’s own advantage
  • Stay sane in an insane world by understanding true spiritual psychology
  • See the world as it is instead of spiritually daydreaming that “things are going to get better”
  • Move beyond conspiracy theories and conspire instead to create a united world of consciousness
  • Gain fresh insights into the work of Campbell, Jung, Yogananda, Gurdjieff, and others
  • Apply the Findhorn principles of miraculous manifestation as practiced by the author since 1973.

“Save yourself years of floundering in the spiritual maze and drink deeply from this modern day wisdom master and the classic he has gifted us with.” —Satyen Raja, founder of WarriorSage Trainings

Also by Taylor is Eros Ascending: The Life-Transforming Power of Sacred Sexuality.
