It was a pleasure interviewing Leonard Szymczak. His new book, “The Roadmap Home“, is easy to read and I loved the analogies that Leonard uses to explain our journey through life.
Most of us think of a GPS as a Global Positioning System, but Leonard refers to it as our “Guiding Power of Spirit”. He states that our GPS always knows where we are and steers us along life’s highways toward our ultimate destination-Home.
Home is a place beyond the ego’s identity. It’s the realization that we are connected with an infinite Source of Wisdom that beckons us to love the inner peace.
Regrettably, we often rush through life with little concern or awareness of this guiding system says Leonard. When we lose that connection, we perceive home as outside ourselves and construct an identity and psychological defense to protect a “false self” – a composite of beliefs downloaded from caregivers, culture and society. Our “false self” seeks material possessions, relationships and experiences to provide happiness and inner peace. We then wander aimlessly like orphans, without a roadmap, unplugged from our GPS.
This book maps a route to connect with our ever-present navigational system. That route takes us through the stages of spiritual awakening. Since all living beings evolve through phases of development, it stands to reason that spiritual development operates under similar principles. Leonard explains that we each go through stages or phases of life. Though we are always connected to an infinite Source, the awakening process is about shifting from one phase to the next. Some of us may be unconscious infants, oblivious to Spirit, while other are maturing into spiritual adults who feel more connected to a Diving Presence. Religious experiences and rituals may color the process, but transformation occurs as we develop through spiritual levels, regardless of religious preferences.
If you are interested in finding a spiritual pathway that will lift your soul and provide you with guidance to your true Home, then I highly recommend you read, “The Roadmap Home“. You can also find great video and support information at Leonard’s website by clicking here.
