The following excerpts are taken from the back
cover of "The Grand Design - I"
"... since you are reading this, may
be you will take it as a proof that guidance works, that there
is a grand design and that you and I and everybody else are
all comprehended by it and, ultimately, freed by it or, more
accurately, helped by it to free ourselves."
Sooner or later questions such as "Who and/or what am
I? Where did I come from? How can I find meaning in my life?
How can I reduce the pain of self-realisation? What will happen
to me when I die?" begin to niggle at each of us. This
book provides answers to these and many other questions. The
answers come from a spiritual being named SHEBAKA
"... but in reality I have no name. I am
coming to talk to you from a vibration where names are no
longer important, where indeed communication is instantaneous
and is so open that one communicates simply by being ..."
who has progressed through different stages of evolution
to the ultimate state of self-realisation or total awareness.
"Why am I especially coming to communicate through you?"
Shebaka informs Patrick Francis
"... Because this was part of our purpose,
I should say is a part of our purpose, that you would develop
yourself to the stage where it would be possible for me to
relay to you some of the wisdom to which it is my privilege
to have access. You in your turn will find opportunities to
pass on this distilled wisdom to others who may be interested
This book is one of those opportunities.
