Book Discovery: High in the Andes: A Spiritual Adventure Novel by William Michael Kaufman
“When you mistake the image in the mirror for the real thing, then you’re just chasing an illusion. When you insist on owning your reflection in the water, you will drown.”
High in the Andes is a spiritual adventure novel that takes readers on a journey along with its main character towards self-discovery. In this adventure, the main character, Narada embarks on a path of spiritual development and experiences that opens him up to the esoteric teachings on forgiveness, energy, healing, meditation, reincarnation, and more. On an archaeological tour of Peru, Narada intentionally separates himself from the group he came with. It was then that he stumbles across a great attraction. However, instead of discovering something “new,” he was serendipitously drawn back to his Incan colleagues. He belonged to a priestly class 450 years ago. This is the beginning of another type of journey, one that is to self-discovery.
High in The Andes: A Spiritual Novel is a story of how the main character has reconnected with his ancient memory. It is an extraordinary experience, but those who are seeking spiritual development will relate to his struggles. In a world where so much focus is placed on the surface of things, the challenges that Narada has faced along with the teachings that he has learned resonates with truth seekers. This book encourages the readers to journey deeper into themselves beyond the surface. It is an invitation to access the knowledge within them and open up their consciousness to their true identity.
