Bernard began his spiritual adventure in 1988 while employed, and disenchanted, as a Golden Boy on Wall Street. Responding to a question asked during a bank training program, “To which historical figure would you like to ask a question?”, he felt a steady, inner voice answer: “I would like to understand what Jesus was really trying to say.” It was a short time afterward that he received a copy of A Course In Miracles, and sensed an immediate, profound connection. At that time he felt that one day he would write a novel based on this remarkable spiritual tradition. Following a need to withdraw from mainstream life in order to continue his studies, he moved to Paris and then to a small village in the Southwest of France. A chaotic period in his life in 1999 led to a series of mystical experiences that brought him finally to begin writing, and “Paulo and the Magician” was the result. He has drafts for two other books, also novels, containing the same message of hope and love. His conviction is that the story-form is the best means for communicating this universal message. Bernard is Australian-born, and lives with his wife Patricia and his golden retriever, Athos, in Salviac, France.Présentation de l'éditeur :
In the tradition of the Alchemist and Jonathon Livingston Seagull, Paulo and the Magician comes to us as an enchanting fable, though it hardly stops there. Ambitious and provocative, the story takes the reader through the meta-physical hoops of A Course In Miracles, weaving in the principles of its complicated psychology, leaving the reader with a full appreciation of this difficult revelatory text – all seen through the eyes of a frustrated young wood seller stuck in his medieval market place! Paulo’s life abounds with the type of people who challenge us every day – an unscrupulous Mayor, a violent Blacksmith, thoroughly annoying clients – and it seems that things will never get better. But he alone knows that the fortress wall is not the end of the Domain, and one day he escapes into the sun-filled land beyond. There he meets Zepharo, the magician, whose discussions drive Paulo quite crazy, but which lead the boy resolutely back along the path toward the Golden City, his true Home.
