This international collection of essays, articles, and poetry explores the core message relayed to us by the great prophets: love is the way. To underscore God's most primordial and pre-eminent commandment, both classic and new selections are presented in this anthology, including contributions by current best-sellers as well as Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, including Wendell Berry, Maya Angelou, Mahatma Gandhi, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The narrator of this work believes that humanity is at the dawn of the New Millennium - the prophesied era of peace and love that represents the fifth stage of humanity's collective spiritual evolution. We shall not survive this critical juncture of human history nor reach our God-given potential unless we embrace each other and our planet. Therefore, until a unifying theosophy emerges to end sectarian strife, humanity should adopt the simple yet elusive religion of love.

In 2004 she founded The Oracle Institute, and with the help of an all-volunteer staff, she has established a publishing program, spirituality school, Web site, and newsletter. The events of 9/11 inspired her to write about the dangers of orthodox religion and the upcoming spiritual paradigm shift. In 2006 she completed the award-winning first book of the Institute's foundational trilogy: The Truth: About the Five Primary Religions (2nd Ed. 2010); The Love: Of the Fifth Spiritual Paradigm (2010); and The Light: And the New Human (2011).
