Review: Awakenings: Epiphanies Along A Spiritual Journey

Title:  Awakenings: Epiphanies Along A Spiritual Journey
Author: Demetris Taylor
Pages:  102
Publisher: Self Published
ISBN: 978-0-615-45166
Age: 18+

Front Cover
The front cover displays a peaceful and serene pathway that would imply that you are traveling on a road to an unknown destination.  Which I believe is exactly what the author wants you to draw from it.  While inviting, it also leaves me with a sense of the unknown or mystery, which is how life pretty much is.

Background (provided by author)
“Awakenings: Epiphanies Along a Spiritual Journey” is a compelling collection of blogs that has been a pinnacle of spiritual development and discernment for the author.  Not only does this body of work provide what epiphanies has been revealed unto the author, it also provides the readers an opportunity to take a spiritual journey that will awaken their own insight into their higher power.

My Thoughts
Did I like this book?  Absolutely!  This book was thought provoking, motivational, and as real as real can get!  Demetris Taylor does not hold back in the least bit and tells you up close and personal!  This book once again is not for the easily offended or the faint of heart.  Taylor speaks from his own personal experiences as he shares his journey and revelations along the way.

As I read this book, I found myself revisiting a few of my own beliefs and conversations that I have had with others.  It motivated me to challenge myself in a few areas and made me realize a few things that I had never considered.  It encouraged me not to give in to my own self sabotage as I enter into my own new personal journey.  I was able to grasp this because I have an open mind and realize that there are many viewpoints and perspectives that exist other than my own.  This book is a great read and I would encourage you to check it out and challenge yourself to experience the journey of another who was willing to share.  Enjoy!

Pg.59 Interviews Demetris Taylor (Pt. 2)

Awakenings–Epiphanies Along A Spiritual Journey
By: Demetris Taylor writing as BIG MEACH

Tell us about you:
Pg.59:  What inspired you to become an author?
Big Meach:
As I was writing my first blog, my spirit AWAKENED and told me this would be a book and I was not willing to accept that decision, but after I calmed myself and listened to what my spirit had to say, I welcomed the opportunity to be a vessel in this fashion.  I’ve written a stage play, “No Time for the Pain”, and never dreamed I’d be an author of a book.

Pg.59:  Where do you draw your inspiration to write?  (Certain place, environment, people??)
Big Meach:  LOL, believe it or not, THE SHOWER!!!  I am a Pisces under the Astrological Equations, and I do know that I LOVE WATER!!  When I shower, I meditate and that’s when I receive most of my epiphanies.  Other epiphanies may come from conversations I’ve had with people and after a thought has been said, I receive a word of encouragement and inspiration that will send me to a place of thought and meditation.

Pg.59:  Did you have moments of writers block? If so, how do you handle it?
Big Meach: Writing is a STRONG discipline and whenever I have moments of “writer’s block” which in my experience has been equated to LAZINESS, I have to just get up from the project and do something else in order to get a fresh revelation and newness for the work.

Pg.59: What advice do you have for upcoming writers, authors, editors?  (Something you wish someone would have told you.)
Big Meach: STOP editing and writing at the same time!  Most times I found myself “too smart” for my own good and in wanting a PERFECT work, I was editing as I was writing which caused me to lose the message and shift my direction at times.  JUST WRITE!!  That’s why the PROOFREADING PROCESS exists!  It’s during THAT process that you clean up the mistakes, shape and structure the work into the masterpiece it is.

Pg.59: What one thing would you like people to know about you?
Big Meach: I am no longer taking on the title as CHRISTIAN in the traditional sense of the word, nor am I “New Age”……I am a BELIEVER in the teachings of THE CHRIST and I am a BELIEVER that THE INFINITE CREATOR cannot and WILL NOT create that which HE/SHE/IT is NOT, so if it exists, then IT IS ALSO A REFLECTION, a MIRROR IMAGE of the CREATOR!

Pg.59: How can people follow your work and get in contact with you?
Big Meach: Currently, people can find the book information at www.facebook.com/AwakeBigMeach and they can email me at bigmeach@dishingtea.com.

Pg.59 Interviews Demetris Taylor (Pt. 1)

 Awakenings–Epiphanies Along A Spiritual Journey
By: Demetris Taylor writing as BIG MEACH

Pg.59:  Briefly, tell us a little about your book and what inspired you write it?
Big Meach:  “Awakenings-Epiphanies Along a Spiritual Journey” is a self empowering, motivational, inspirational book that is designed to stimulate personal growth, reflection and dialogue between the reader and those with whom the reader shares the offerings.  I was inspired to put this together after I relinquished my 12 year membership with my church and needed to stay connected with my spirituality without conforming to the mundaneness of organized religion. 

Pg.59:  Who do you hope or want to connect with by writing this book?
Big Meach:  It is my Praise Report that I connect and reach all those who wish to stay connected and in tune with their spirituality and are looking for fresh, new, innovative ideas and approaches to stay on their paths or journey toward becoming their authentic selves without being bombarded, bamboozled, and betrayed by what traditional religion regurgitates and dictates as truth through contradictions and fear.  

Pg.59:  Will there be additional books in this series or likeness?
Big Meach:  That remains to be seen.  I KNOW the journey IS NOT over; however, I will see how my spirit leads me with this one.
