I’ve had a sense since I was young
that there’s more going on here, that
the world is not a cold, dead place,
that it’s alive in some compelling and
This book is about that sense. I’ve tried
to listen to it, and follow it, and trust it.
It’s been devastating at times, intoxicating
at others, heartbreaking and maddening
and euphoric——how do you make sense
of this experience we’re having here on
this ball of rock hurtling through space
at 67,000 miles an hour?
There are big questions: Everything
is made of particles and atoms, and the
universe has been expanding for thirteen
And then there are those other questions, about the people and places and
events that have shaped us.
HOWEVER MASSIVE AND
COSMIC IT ALL IS, IT’S ALSO
REALLY, REALLY PERSONAL.
THAT’S THE WORD FOR IT.
That’s the sense I’ve been following
for a while now——this awareness that
there’s something bigger happening in
the depth and complexity and struggle
of life, something that connects us all,
reminding us that it all matters and it’s
all headed somewhere.
Part memoir, part confession, part
extended riff on the endlessly evolving
nature of reality, Everything Is Spiritual
is an invitation to see what you’ve been
a part of this whole time.
