"For those who want to believe in God but can't. For those who once believed in God but now aren't so sure." Seismic means "having a strong or widespread impact; earthshaking." And when the ground shakes, there may be a time of grief before there is relief; a time of loss before there is discovery; a time of darkness before there is light.
Seismic Shift: From God to Goodness is one person's journey into that light. It is a journey from traditional faith in God as a supernatural Being, past New Spirituality concepts of God as Oneness or Energy, to a progressive spirituality that envisions God not as a higher Being, or a delusion, but a higher Ideal—especially the ideal of Goodness.
What if God is not a Being but a metaphor—a metaphor for life, love and goodness in the universe. What if God is not a divine Person but a personification of that life-force, especially of goodness? Then true spirituality is not about using the right God words, or even any God words, but about longing for and bringing goodness into our world, without which life and relationships don't work.
"May this book inspire, warm and guide others on their personal journey and quest for a spiritual space to call home between god and goodness—it certainly has the potential to do so!"
