Author: Richard Eggenberger Title: The Seeking Soul Book size:5.5 x 8.5 Book Description: This collection of poems is not arranged in any special order for the progress of the soul is always in a spiral. There may be moments, and indeed there are, when we take a leap towards the future, but there are also times when we fall back as there is so much still to be transformed in our natures. There is no doubt that the mind must abdicate in order for the psychic being to come forward and lead the soul to its predestined goal. Then too, the vital nature with its desires, specious needs, prejudices and preferences must also be relegated to its true role of a purified life force invigorating the body and exploring beauty through creativity. The Seeking Soul is not just first class poetry but much more. It is a song, a hymn, a prayer and an aspiration that rises straight from the depths of the poet’s heart and steers through the blind walls of form towards the Great Unseen Whole. It is the story of a soul journeying through the haze and maze of life held up by the Hand of Grace and carried in the arms of Love. The poems are sometimes expressions of gratitude, at other times a deep experience, at yet other times a flame of love mounting up towards Heavens, or a subtle truth revealed through the medium of harmonious rhythm. But always the words and lines are like streams flowing towards their Source. To the seeking soul, they are like toasts of delight raised in the name of the heart’s unseen Beloved or mirrors of sacred joy that resonate in the depths of all who tread the sacred spaces of the soul. Just as our own joy is doubled when we see the joy of our loved ones so also the inner flame is fed by the warmth of the poet’s flame and the heart rejoices on reading the account of another pilgrim and co-traveller on the Great and Wonderful Path.

I needed an awesome book cover. Ivan Bjorn didn't just knock it out of the park, he broke the bat, destroyed several orbital spacecrafts, and aliens are this minute speaking his name in hushed, awed tones on Galaxion 9, where he is now worshipped as a god. "Thanks" is not enough. If you need an awesome book cover, look no further!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
