The title for UTOPIA FOUND: A Blueprint for Spiritual Renaissance and World Peace by Troy Reicherter is not kidding. This inspired tome succeeds in providing a comprehensive blueprint for absorbing–as well as implementing–useful, far-reaching, practical, ethical, spiritual knowledge in support of individuals doing their part towards achieving world peace. The book covers a lot of ground, including a thorough exploration of science and religion–the gifts and pitfalls–along with taking a deep dive into understanding how traditions from indigenous cultures–from the Greeks, Romans and Hindus to the Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians and Baha’i–apply to human civilization’s most burning concerns. Current as well as long-standing issues are addressed, as is gaining a multidimensional grasp on the Universe.
The information explored is amply supplemented with bibliographies supplying further resource reading, and religious sections are backed up with references from holy texts such as the Bible as they relate. Best of all, UTOPIA FOUND is an enjoyable, user-friendly read. Not that all concepts tackled will be received without controversy. Everyone may not agree that Christ was, in effect, a yogic master wielding ultimate reality-transforming spiritual skills which are really in the realm of possibility for every human being to develop and exert, though Jesus himself is quoted in the Bible saying so. Even harder to argue against are historical details definitively proving notions like war–any war, including religious ones–ever being ‘just’ are part of an unhelpful belief system that’s long overdue for retiring.
Additionally, Reicherter does a wonderful job pointing out other inconsistencies in logic which some humans foolishly cling to, such as perceiving the Science understood in society at any given time as being ALL the scientific fact there will ever be to learn or to know, when history continually proves this to be a myth. The mechanistic models of understanding reality are and have been useful to a point, for example, but in terms of subatomic frontiers science is now broaching, a mechanical way of perceiving reality no longer applies as mechanisms of quantum physics step forward to take center stage. Underlying everything there is to digest in this empowering work are numerous signs all pointing towards an end to education that emphasizes fighting for what one wants and regurgitating past data, in favor of readers learning to think, and to value as well as protect the lives of a multitude of others beyond themselves.
For anyone who ever wanted to know whether creating World Peace was possible and, if so, how civilization might go about getting there, the rousing UTOPIA FOUND: A Blueprint for Spiritual Renaissance and World Peace by Troy Reicherter–like the best transformational spiritual resources–can be considered a sacred text in and of itself.
