At some point in life we must each come to terms with the questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Is the Universe just a cosmic crap shoot, based on chance and luck, or is there an unseen benevolent order striving to guide us behind the scenes?

Matthew Stone, having wandered far from his soul path, is about to find out. Launched on an amazing journey of spiritual awakening, what he learns and experiences along the way will change his life forever...and yours.

PROLOGUE
The spirit, Riff-3, waited-checking for possibilities, anticipating opportunity. Building tension had signaled that another step in its evolution was at hand, but what was it, and where? A suitable learning adventure required the right circumstances-major challenges, gut wrenching emotions, a quest for a higher purpose, and, of course, the proper surroundings.

Problem was, existing in the Astral Plane as a pure spirit just wasn't the appropriate environment. True, an infinite abundance of facts, stories, and second hand knowledge constantly circulated among the spirits here. Nevertheless, in order to evolve, Riff-3 needed to experience; the intellectual pursuit of wisdom seldom proved an adequate substitute for personal involvement.

No, the basic three step process for true experiential learning still worked best: pick the proper environment, jump right in, and hang on for the ride. Stir in a bit of chance, a dash of free choice, room for conflict and confrontation, a quest toward a higher purpose, and lots of open-ended situations to muddy-up the outcome. Finally, start fresh by throwing in a major memory loss to eliminate knowledge of all past lessons.

Now you had the potential to truly experience a magnificent adventure!

Obviously, the well ordered, and highly cooperative community within the Astral Plane didn't meet these requirements. However, the constantly shifting uproar in the physical fabric of space-time fit perfectly.

And then Riff-3 felt the pull-the possible conception of a new child about to take place on the planet Earth. Yes, everything resonated; definitely the opportunity the Spirit had been looking for.

Having manifested human form on Earth many times, Riff-3 also recalled the challenge that awaited. When moving from pure spirit into human form, it was always the same-fragmentation.

At the moment of conception, when the Spirit's new human physical body first began to form, the dark force of the Barrier Zone would immediately rush in and surround it. Then, as the baby grew in its mother's womb-trapped on the other side of the Barrier Zone and separated from its Spiritual Self-the swirling energy of the Barrier Zone would slowly erase all past memories.

The result: Humans always forgot the true essence of who they really were.

Yes, the Barrier Zone-that dark screen of negative energy constantly generated by the combined fears and limiting beliefs in the collective unconscious of all humanity-would be waiting. However, Riff-3 welcomed this event, because the isolated human Ego-Self's struggle to break through the Barrier Zone, reconnect with its Spiritual Self, and regain wholeness became one of the most powerful learning experiences in the Universe.

It was time.

"Are you prepared to join us?" the spirit guide of each individual human being now on Earth asked in one voice.

"Yes," Riff-3 responded.

"Welcome aboard."

In a blinding burst of rainbow energy, Riff-3 streaked through the shimmering boundary of the Astral Plane and into the fabric of space-time. The Spirit felt the howling shock wave radiate outward as the fragmentation process began, and when the swirling darkness of the Barrier Zone rushed in, it was ready.

On the other side of the Barrier Zone, Riff-3's new human Ego-Self flashed into existence. Another space in the cosmic classroom was filled. School was back in session.

* * *
Nine months later, in the brightly lit delivery room of a small Southern California hospital, Matthew Donald Stone came into the world at 4:18 AM on Easter Sunday.

All past memories were now wiped clean.

Soul Path A Spiritual Adventure
By William Benkovsky

A phenomenal read, I simply could not put this one down! William Benkovsky’s’ Soul Path is a novel of spiritual growth and rejuvenation in the middle of one man’s life, when his spirit guide “Riff-3” helps the main character Matthew segue into a more authentic life during what some would call a midlife crisis.

The perspective from which this novel is written is brilliant, and captures the reader’s attention immediately, as the one-sided dialogue of the Spirit Guide, while hearing the thoughts of Matthew, helps us to look at our own lives in a different light, as though we really do have help from the other side.

Benkovsky brings real elements into the book such as an affiliation with the Inside Edge — a popular networking group in Orange County, California. Some of the healers mentioned who helped the character to grow spiritually were real-life author, Barbara Sher and David John Oates, known for his revolutionary reverse speech work. Including the work of these two popular spiritual leaders helped bring the character to life while informing the reader of alternative healing in an interesting way.

This book is a must for anyone searching for their true place in life — the journey of the spirit.
