-- SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – Motor enthusiast Phillip Cotton lived a life dedicated by his need for speed, but it is this lifestyle that led him to find spirituality. In his book, “Racing to Enlightenment”
(ISBN 1450555772), Cotton explains how he applied his love for motorcycles to his career choices, relationships with women and connection to himself. He found that he was living on the edge in every aspect of life. What finally started Cotton on his road to personal growth was a near-fatal accident that moved him to reflect on his life in a way that he had never done before. The experience changed him profoundly, and inspired him to find his spirituality within himself and the world around him. Cotton tells his autobiography through an honest, personal account of his quest to find stability in his life. He believes that his path to awakening will interest people like him—spiritual seekers and racing enthusiasts. “My work shows that a regular person can find awakening without spending a life in meditation at an ashram kissing the feet of an Indian guru,” Cotton said. Readers will see Cotton’s transformation from a thrill-seeker to a spiritual-seeker after an unlikely, life-changing experience. He hopes that his story inspires readers to take whatever path is necessary to bring them to their desired level of spirituality.
