Fading Toward Enlightenment: Life Between the Ego and the Ethereal
"Though I didn't know it at the time, I heard the Siren's song within my mother's womb. Even before I was born, I was being drawn to my death."
Thus begins the true story of a gifted photographer's quest for inner peace. Beautifully illustrated with over 75 fine-art, B/W images, "Fading Toward Enlightenment" takes the reader on a modern-day hero's journey. From the anguish of self-loathing, through the confusion of the search, past the traps of the mind - photographer and author, Wayne Wirs leads the reader on an epic tale of his personal quest for tranquility in the midst of today's fast-paced world.
Following no particular school of thought or religious practice, the author recounts his journey from a typical, normal, solid life to one that is dynamic, flowing and at times filled with the Divine.
Students of meditation, eastern philosophy, and the esoteric - as well as fans of "The Celestine Prophecy", "The Power of Now", and "The Tao Te Ching" - will find a voice that resonates true in the author's poetic words and inspiring images.
"Fading Toward Enlightenment" is one of the most honest and beautifully illustrated accounts of the modern spiritual search to date. Its powerful images, inspiring quotes and compelling text harmonize subtly to immerse the reader in this heart-felt and moving narrative.
