Redemptor Book Review- Expectations, Found Family, and the Underworld

4 thoughts on “Redemptor Book Review- Expectations, Found Family, and the Underworld”

  1. “A stunning fantasy novel about facing challenges to save the world.” A fascinating concept to wonder if there is any power or means to save the world that humans could devise! I have to admit I was always in awe of the vastness of existence as we know it, but, youthful starry-eyed exuberance gave me a sense of being able to wrap my head around anything; if I really put my mind to it! But alas, I see myself for who I really am, a mere grain of sand on a beach being pounded by the perpetual powerful waves of the ocean that toss and turn everything in their path; including “Li’l Ol’ Me” to and fro!

    I like what this former extremely fascinating person’s mind came up with when trying to ponder such fanciful dreams.

    I want to leave something I find very insightful by a man we all know was a remarkably brilliant person who I think even though his head was immersed in the world of science and theories he had a keen insight into God’s presence and reality like few people can achieve with our limiting cognitive faculties.; and his respect and love of God was present and genuine; therefore we can say God will judge accordingly, I know for myself Einstein was a good and respectful soul in this world, so I do wish him well. What follows I was writing about back at this mentioned date.

    Einstein on Self and the Mystical

    “A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
    -Albert Einstein, 1954

    “The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness.”
    -Albert Einstein – “The Merging of Spirit and Science”

    This man the father of physics had said a few great one liners but two that stand out are these. He referred to God as the “Old One.” He speaking to other physicists was known to have said during a discussion about the Big Bang Theory in which one scientist said that with enough random events occurring in this pre-millisecond before it happened eureka the right combination occurred; Einstein just plainly said; “God doesn’t roll dice.”

    Thank you for the thought provoking inspirations!
