Here is our first book recommendation!
Supernatural, by Richard Smoley
A collection of essays based around the mood of hope that was around as people thought the new millennium would usher in a massive awakening of society, which over and over began to be predicted and then was seen to be lacking.
The first chapter is about a meeting with a ‘Master’ called Glyn. The meeting takes place in a kitchen :), which is described as being “both remarkably dingy and remarkably magical”. I write this as some people reading here may recognise that description!
I personally think the awakening did take place, but hardly anybody noticed it!
I think to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity, people must take into account that the general rules still apply: personally, a bit of work being necessary to see a result, unpleasant things still happen to one, and bad behaviour still reaps bad results.
