Sinopsis: Ramakrishna Michael’s inspirational story is one of a child endowed with a world-class musical talent, who became a pawn in an emotionally incestuous relationship with his mother. He grew to be a troubled young man, who devolved into a disastrously dysfunctional adult, addicted to sex, drugs, and denial. In 1985 Ramakrishna met his guru, Babaji Shambhavananda, and slowly but surely, over the years, these less than desirable qualities that were part of his karmic make-up began to dissolve, fostering considerable spiritual growth and transformation. Growing Old With Grace is the story of that metamorphosis. A natural born storyteller, Ramakrishna describes, with great insight, how he transformed his life by the grace of the guru (the grace of consciousness). His eloquently written memoir, delivered candidly and with self-deprecating humor, is a story of healing and of how the author has come to terms with his demons. In short, Growing Old with Grace is a compelling tale of the power of the human spirit and of the quest for spiritual truth. It’s an inspirational and motivational tale like few others and a “must-read” for anyone interested in yoga and meditation.
From the Back Cover:
Drugs, sex, despair, and... an amazing spiritual rebirth
Too bizarre to be fiction, yet absolutely true
The author was a young child with world-class musical talent who became a pawn in an overwhelming, emotionally incestuous relationship with his mother. Consequently, as a young man he lost the desire for a music career and began to destroy his life with intense addictions to sex, drugs and denial. Then, at age 41, he met Babaji Shambhavananda and became a student. His nightmare slowly dissolved, transformed by spiritual growth.
Surrender and become open to the positive force of the universe
From the oil fields in the Oklahoma Bible Belt to the heights of ecstatic meditation, this journey may be hard to believe. But it's a universal story. Redemption comes to all who seek it ardently. The author overcame serious physical and mental issues to live in profound peace and freedom. You'll see it in detail and be renewed on your own spiritual path.
Limitations are actually fuel for your spiritual growth
You will be moved by this compelling -- and often funny -- tale as Ramakrishna wanders around the world, searching for Truth (and drugs and sex!) until he attends a meditation class and meets Babaji, his guru, for the first time.
It will change the way you think of spirituality
"Affecting; seasoned with intellectual maturity as well as spiritual passion." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
