“It takes precious little insight to realize that the Western World’s social contract has gone terribly wrong. Unfettered capitalism, rampant materialism and elements of organized religion have all been complicit in our demise. Ron MacInnis addresses our situation with uncommon clarity, compassion and wisdom. Most important of all, he gives us hope.” – Roger Brinton, Directing Mgr.(corporate), (Ret’d) Redwood City, CA

“I recognize your book as a gentle autobiography of a gentle person, and the accompanying quotes from all sorts of persons and sources are both versatile and comforting. I think the main thing is the personal story you tell of the life of a seeker, a term that has become increasingly popular if only because there are so many who engage in a private journey of discovery – or wish they could if they could find the time”.- Dr. Bruce Matthews, Professor Emeritus of Comparative Religion, Acadia University, Wolfville, N.S.
