Sept. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- Religion does not have to divide us. Religion is about spiritual awakening, not animosity or self-righteousness. For thousands of years we have been hating and slaughtering each other “in the name of God”. But rather than reading scriptures as literal history, or dire warnings about the consequences of moral failure – where each religion sounds contrary to all the others and insists that it, alone, has the only ‘real’ Truth – Andrew Cort shows readers how to read the fabulous stories of different traditions in an inner symbolic way. As he says, whether the metaphorical journey is called “The Return to the Promised Land”, “The Quest for the Holy Grail”, or “Muhammad’s Journey to the Seven Heavens,”  

*  They are all illuminating the same path to the same God;  

*  The different ways these stories are told attests to the marvelous range of the human imagination, and yet:

*  The common underlying purpose that unites them (and us) is infinitely more striking than any of the differences.

When this is understood, the major motivation for religious hatred and war disappears!

The spiritual exercises and insights in “The Door is Open” will help readers attain a more fulfilling, successful, and truly meaningful spiritual life, filled with loving-kindness and inclusive of everyone.

Here is what one of the many Reviewers is saying:

“As a pastor in a mainstream Protestant denomination I work with groups and individuals searching to go deeper in their faith and want tools with which to do this. Many have turned to Eastern traditions where meditation and yoga “open the door” (to use his title) to the spirit within. Andrew Cort has provided a book so that within any spiritual tradition people can find the steps to spiritual awakening. His genius is taking ‘esoteric’ ideas and making them, through his gift as a writer, accessible to everyone.”

- Rev. Janet E. McKinstry
