Guest Post/Virtual Tour ~ Reflections: A Journey To G-d by Gary & Susan Eby

Why?  Why should I read this book?  Good question.

This is not a religious book.  This is a spiritual book.  No matter what religion you may practice (or not) this book tells of the spiritual journey of two very different people coming together to bring healing to themselves and one another.  Now, we are ready to share our 40 year journey with you.

Again, you may ask, "Why should I read this book?"

Well… first of all it's a good read.  It's a story that's funny, sad, uplifting, mysterious, and finally, hopeful.  We promise if you take that 'leap of faith' and read this book you may discover your own pathway to a spectacular life.

Our book is in a form that includes short essays, poetry, talks, and stories of our journey.  We don't ask that you read this book from cover to cover.  We ask that you choose stories that speak to your heart, to your soul, and your mind.

Here's our disclaimer which may help you decide if you wish to start (or re-start) a spiritual journey.  You can use our book as a guideline if you wish:

DISCLAIMER:  "You are completely free to reject everything we have to say about spirituality.  What we believe in is not that important.  What really counts is what you believe…

We're sharing it with you because it might help you on your own journey.  We only ask that you read this book with an open mind and heart.

We suggest after reading one of these pieces that you ponder it, let it sink in, or perhaps read it out loud.  Allow yourself to feel the words and the light which may lead you to discover the better life you truly deserve."

Why should I read this book?  Here's a quote from a review we recently received:

"This collection of spiritual essays, prose, and poems, by Gary and Susan Eby, is remarkable. They share their own triumphs and tribulations; they offer resources and guidance to others to find their path to G-d."

One last thing.  If you want to learn more, please Zoom with us.  It's free, it's fun, and it is uplifting.  (The link is listed below.)

Joy on your Journey,  Gary and Susan Eby

Our disclaimer: you are completely free to reject everything we have to say about spirituality. What we believe in is not that important. What really counts is what you believe that gives your life meaning, direction, and purpose.

This book is about our personal stories with Spirit and what we’ve learned along our journeys. We’re sharing it with you because it might help you on your own journey to G-d. We only ask that you read this book with an open mind and heart.

We suggest you pick one of these spiritual essays. Ponder it, meditate for a while, even read it out loud. Allow yourself to feel the words and the light, which may lead you to discover the better life you truly deserve.

Gary Eby is a retired social worker, mental health counselor and addiction therapist. He writes about self-help and spirituality. Gary loves playing the piano, the drums and walking on the beach with his wife, Susan. His motto is “Choose the positive, because it’s all good!”

Susan studied philosophy in college. Some of her favorite philosophers are Socrates, Plato, William James and St. Thomas Aquinas. She is currently enjoying Emerson’s mystical essays. We have conducted an interview with them.

Excerpt ~


Emotional Healing


In the twilight of an Oregon summer night, the half-moon projects a mystical glow. Cool mountain air flows with the gentle sounds of cricket music. A glimmering star curtain unfurls to reveal a celestial vision of power and energy that transcends all human worry, doubt, and fear.


Tonight I am at peace, yet I still struggle with discouragement. A part of me obsesses and worries about an unsure financial future. This negative side is unforgiving, self-critical, and emotionally abusive.


At age 60, it appears overwhelming and even impossible to change the direction and course of my life. As I try out new ideas and new technology to achieve my dreams and goals, I stumble and fall. So many barriers and obstacles loom on the horizon. The prospect of giving up and throwing in the towel appears seductive.  Why not just give up?   What's the point anyway?


I ask myself why am I trying so hard to achieve my dreams, when reality smacks of karma, suffering, powerlessness, and death?  We all know about all of those 'bad things' that keep happening to 'good people'. Right?


I accept that evil and injustice exists in this world.  I know random or calculated acts of violence, painful relationships, disease and the loss of loved ones, cause untold pain and suffering.  In these moments of despair, frustration, and discouragement, my consciousness returns to the power of the half-moon.


There is darkness but the moonlight always conquers the night. Even when no moon can be seen in the sky, the moon is there.  Tonight, I choose to thrive on the Light living within all of us.


Much of life will remain a mystery. The stars above and the universe within will sustain me through predictable trials and life challenges. I choose to embrace the majesty of life made sublimely radiant by those infinite, flashing, celestial spheres.


I feel myself merging with the universe and my thoughts begin to turn toward G-d.  This is the place I want to be.  This is the space I want to be in.  This is where I want to live my life.  I refuse to let the negative overtake me.  


I emotionally reach out toward the lights dancing in the sky and accept what is always, always true.  I am forever guided by G-d, and whatever happens in my life, I know Spirit will show me through.  No fears, worries or negativity can touch me when I am existing in the Love Light.
