"Motivated for the Cause" is a double-entendre: it refers to be motivated for the cause of our existence, in a sense the spiritual quest, and it also refers to being motivated for the cause... More > to make life great, to be in the full of art and experience. I would like to find a way through my writing to save the true spirit of poetry by what I call the anti-novel. I didn't invent the term anti-novel, but it is seldom heard. It basically means a literary form that has none of the conventions of the novel (a definition from Webster's). I think the very buzz of the word "anti-novel" would sell copies of my work and thus give poetry more of a chance of surviving than it presently has. The anti-novel can read like a novel, but it gives the ponderance of statement usually only reserved for poetry.

More > these experiences actually are taking place in the brain. Such studies, including one in which the IQ of hallucinators was shown to decrease after the onset of hallucinations, are very important for all religious people to understand. The author believes that today's spiritual climate is often dangerous. Most of the traditional religious leaders, whether they be Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu or Buddhist, teach that some religious experiences may be dangerous. However, in today’s spiritual marketplace, these experiences often become the most important part of some people’s spirituality.
