about

Martin is a young man with no conscious spiritual yearning and a dim sense of something wrong deep inside. He almost destroys himself by the time he's twenty-two, but then has the good fortune to be awakened by Meher Baba, a renowned spiritual figure.
 
After a honeymoon of feeling divine love, it gradually begins to dawn on Martin that the Master wants not only love, but obedience. The spiritual path is "no game for the weak and fainthearted." Martin has a difficult go of it, blundering several times over the next decades, suffering precipitous falls--but always, somehow, being given another chance. He comes to realize the journey is a long one.
 
In this collection of short stories, Max Reif digs deep to offer an entertaining and insightful account of this arduous spiritual trek. The tales lead the reader from epiphanies of youth, to the life of a spiritual seeker, to a deepening awareness of the maturity required for true discipleship. These stories take the reader on a bumpy ride from the dark depths of shock therapy to the soaring heights of seeing God manifest in the world, illuminating the hope we all have for redemption and rebirth.
 
This is a book not just for Baba lovers but for all who want spiritual growth and want to learn through the challenges of a personal story about the spiritual journey.

Writer, artist, musician, Max Reif lives in California and shares his storytelling, music and love of play with the preschoolers he teaches and the adults he entertains. He will soon be releasing a music CD and continues to share prose and poetry in The Mindful Word, The Seattle Star, GLOW International, and elsewhere. For more informa...
