Frank Daversa's best-seller is now in its fifth edition, offering readers advice on how to not only survive but rise above life's challenges and the daily grind in order to attain a more fulfilling spiritual existence. These lessons and more await in the pages of "Spirituality in the 21st Century," "Lessons for Inner Peace and Personal Growth."
The modern world is replete with adversity, from pressures to pursue work and career at the expense of other personal aspects to the constant bombardment of information due to modern technology to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Amidst all this, Daversa provides those at the crossroads in life, wondering how they will continue with their existence, with six reasons to focus on spiritual growth. He shows how cultivating spirituality can help strengthen family ties, build character and promote the resilience needed to face obstacles in life.
Daversa provides practical and insightful instructions on how to develop and apply spirituality in all life aspects, attain personal completion and fulfillment, an improved understanding of different spiritual perspectives and God, the role spirituality plays in interpersonal relationships, how this goes hand in hand with one's societal role as a member of a greater global community, and ultimately apply these in matters ranging from politics to the environment which can be viewed through the lens of a spiritual journey.
Inspiration came from a variety of sources, from Daversa's personal faith in God and Christ to Martin Luther King, Jr. and John F. Kennedy. He expands spirituality from an individualized perspective to one that connects with broader social and community roles. He also shows "how to live and thrive in an increasingly materialistic world."
These insights are based on his own journey, as he began as an agnostic for 20 years before a battle with a serious illness in the 90s led him to shift his outlook and restore his faith. Now he strives to make a difference in other people's lives. Whether it is in applying spirituality to one's everyday life and activities or incorporating it in one's pursuit of social causes, Daversa shows readers how faith and spiritual growth are relevant to them.
