204 pages. A humorous look at a usually lofty and intimidating topic the meaning of life this book documents one man's uphill journey to enlightenment. Explaining the attractions (and pitfalls) of a pick-and-choose approach, the discussion covers Eastern and Western beliefs, all the while elucidating their practices through personal anecdotes. An attack of existentialism, a dogged attempt to discover God through poetry, a doomed holiday at a health farm, and time spent at a ritual Egyptian dance workshop are some of the instructive stories offered, complete with such odd characters as a saffron-turbaned Dadaji, the poet Les Murray, and a Catholic priest who stops taking the author's calls. Phil Brown's life has been one long existential crisis. His path to enlightenment has been uphill - think of climbing Everest with a colonic irrigation or two along the way. Join Phil as he searches for meaning in the most unlikely places. Phil's journey begins inauspiciously when he is carted out of a health farm on a stretcher - good food and vigorous exercise apparently weren't a clever idea for a man with a stomach ulcer and a fear of vegans. Once back from the emergency ward, Phil gingerly dips his toes into a variety of experiences, from speaking in tongues to a ritual Egyptian dance workshop, not to mention meaning-of-life seminars and meditation. With a cast of curious characters including Guru Bubba John, Les Murray and a dial-a-clairvoyant, not to mention Phil himself, this hilarious book will have you doubled up with laughter. Settle yourself into the lotus position, grab a cup of peppermint tea, and enjoy the ride.
