An Upraised Chalice: Adventures and Near-Death Encounters in My Search for the Brother-hood of Light and What it Can Mean for You
by Gene O’Neil —
“Nothing gets one’s attention like one’s imminent demise,” writes O’Neil as he chronicles the remarkable travels, adventures and near-death experiences that have marked his quest to discover the meaning of life.
His insights, born of experience, cut across religious boundaries to convey a vibrant spirituality in plain, accessible language.
He, like many people, has turned away from traditional organized religions to explore his own relationship with the Divine, and this book chronicles his remarkable journey to many of the world’s sacred places.
It is the inspiring story of a lifetime quest for ancient wisdom, while experiencing miraculous intercessions of the Great Ones along the way.
The author (a professional pilot, builder, teacher and family man) has had multiple near-death encounters throughout the years.
He details the lifelong chain of events that brought about intercessions and the prior and subsequent interactions with the Great Ones that shaped his life.
And there is a much deeper story here.
A story that is vast in its implications and one that contains a challenge to all who seek to know the truth — a story that helps to answer our greatest question: Why are we here?
