“Be humble for you are made of stardust; be noble for you are the Maker of stars.”
This is the story of a God-seeking peasant who is unable to find peace through the authoritative religion of his people. He is called on a journey that stretches his faith beyond its limits and breaks every bone of truth in his body, eventually teaching him that what he seeks has been seeking him. He learns that his destination was never far away, though only his failure in chasing it could bring him there and reveal what he truly was all along.
Before the advent of the novel, plot and character development took a backseat to ideational development meant to stimulate inward reflection. The use of parables, allegories, and dialogue-driven interaction between archetypal characters more easily internalized by the reader were common techniques to engender a contemplative state. The Peasant and the King is a revival of this traditional method of mythic storytelling, presented within a time-bending motif that will drop modern readers off at their doorsteps after a long, deep ride into the Void.
Modeled after the many great works of allegorical storytelling that make up the world heritage of sacred scriptures, The Peasant and the King is a syncretist gospel for a coming age. Readers will find elements of Taoism, Zen Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta, Quakerism, Christian mysticism, Spinozan pantheism, anarchism, panpsychism, and modern quantum theory, all collaborating to present a unique rendition of timeless Perennial wisdom.
