Nashville, TN (PressExposure) November 28, 2009 -- Most people naturally want to be healthy, wealthy, and happy. There is no end to books and new age teachers who claim to offer the pathway to this ideal life, although they rarely deliver on the promise. So, where do you turn when you feel abandoned and sick, poor and depressed, and your traditional beliefs provide no comfort? That was the challenge for one grieving husband who questioned his faith after untimely death of his wife in 1985. He received some unusual but very powerful answers from the late Sedona M. Schnebly, namesake of the famous scenic resort in northern Arizona. But, how do you explain a different belief system taught by a channeled teacher who died in 1951?
During side trips to Sedona, Arizona while on business travel, the writer âmetâ five spiritual teachers who described five universal principles of reality that have grown into a full course in Theofatalismâ¢. This belief system asserts that God runs everything in the universe from the smallest subatomic particle to the largest interstellar galaxy. After receiving these important messages from the teachers he encountered in Sedona, the book Voices of Sedona was written to get the principles on paper and to share them with others.
In addition to the five principles developed in Voices of Sedona, published through IUniverse, the complete course also includes sixty essays that link the principles of Theofatalismâ¢ to contemporary issues in society and personal living including politics, science, religion, aging, history, economics, and more. These essays are updated continually with content that focuses on current events, and are presented in a blog at http://www.sedonavoices.blog.com.
As a kit, the book and essays compile Lessons from Sedona, The Course in Theofatalismâ¢. The kit is suggested as a comprehensive resource guide for study groups that may be organized and hosted by anyone who is inspired to help those who are hurtingâeven feeling abandoned by Godâto âfeel good inside no matter what happens outside.â Potential hosts for this course could include pastors, counselors, or friends who gather in the neighborhood.
As a symbol of the journey that readers must take in life, the Sedona book and essays include a depiction of the Chartres Labyrinth. Unlike a maze, that is designed to confuse and frustrate, the labyrinth is an ancient pathway directly into the inner core that connects the walker with the center of the deepest self and back into the world that God has made. The essays from Sedona offer the same personal growth for modern readers who are ready for the voyage.
For those whose traditional dogmas taught in churches, synagogues, temples, and mosques no longer meet their needs for a faith that can endure the challenges of new scientific discoveries and global political realities, Voices of Sedona and its related Lessons from Sedona essays present a clear view of reality without the blindfold of superstition and illogical reasoning. It could be the Tao of the Future for those thinkers who no longer find their present beliefs sufficient for a durable way of life. The five Sedona Principles represent a new clear lens for understanding the insanity that passes for modern society. If the student is ready, the teacher has come. Her name is Sedona.
