"Heaven on earth is a place where you never know what's going to happen. It's this grand adventure, this dizzying series of interesting surprises, and you never really reach the end. But that's the joy in it." So speaks Rob Brezsny, a self-acclaimed "perpetrator of sacred uproar" who revels in the limitless possibilities in the chaos that surrounds us. He envisions a world where each of us is a "rapturist," stealing one another's pain and spreading outrageous joy everywhere. Mr. Brezsny's words are thrilling and heady, but somehow also grounded in the reality of everyday life. Like all of us he's struggled to turn heartache and anger into life lessons, and offers real-world strategies for opening the door to the universe's benevolent guidance and boundless happiness. He believes that cultural and global collapse and resurrection are now happening simultaneously, and suggests that each of us is responsible for creating the future with our own brand of creativity, benevolence, and unpredictability.
