The book is in the form of a narrative involving the search of a seeker of knowledge to the top of a mountain to consult a famous oracle. During his discussion with the oracle, many important answers on God , reality, man, morality are revealed. This book will be useful for those who are starting out on the path of metaphysical enquiry and also for those involved in meditation, as the book also describes an advanced meditation technique for acquiring this knowledge from the soul or inner self.
Our inner being is a source of knowledge and power which we can approach daily in an attempt to answer many important questions on the meaning of life, on who and what we are, our ethics and morality, our world with its natural laws and so-called supernatural events and the existence of a higher spiritual reality and God. How we access this knowledge has been for many centuries the subject matter of science, psychology, philosophy, Theology and mysticism. I believe that these are ultimately all different approaches or paths to the same source of knowledge and revelation that is available to us deep within the levels of our own consciousness.
During our lives each of us should be encouraged to complete a personal journey through the writings, scriptures and available information in the world today to find this wellspring of truth which is within our reach. We can call this our search for the “Oracle” of our inner being or spirit, that part of us which we have forgotten. The successful completion of this search results in the gifts of “Understanding” and of “Revelation”, which will be for each of us a state of inner peace and a very personal experience or revelation of Truth. This journey, which can be long and arduous, begins with the correct preparation and the use of basic principles such as our common sense and sound thinking as well as our conscience and intuition, which will enable and empower us to separate falsity, deception and illusion from truth and reality as we continue along the path.
We can also make use of more advanced techniques such as meditation. One such exercise, a visualisation called the “Oracle”, has proved to be extremely powerful. This particular technique was used extensively as a basis to this book to obtain the insights that are presented here. I have explained it fully in the introduction for those of you who wish to make use of the exercise.
There is great power in the actual process or search itself and if we follow this path diligently, our thinking will be progressively transformed from stereotyped beliefs into a broad, active and growing personal awareness and knowledge of ourselves, God and the universe.
This book has been written on two levels. It contains firstly an allegory of a seeker for knowledge following a path up a mountain to consult a famous oracle and to find answers to many important questions and is deeply symbolic. Secondly, a simpler interpretation of the passages has been provided to explain and discuss what was revealed, implied and
understood during the exercise. The method used for these discussions follows the path of spiritual philosophy, that is, what is presented on a higher level as divine revelation, will be argued and supported by examples from real life and the everyday world of human experience. The reader therefore has the freedom to accept or reject that which is presented as truth. All that is requested is that the information be viewed with an open mind.

Professional Reviews

Odyssey magazine October /Nov 2002
Buy this book, it is excellent, well-considered and clear. And it works with you using your personal imagery through a running 'Oracle' visualisation of the seeker (you!) of knowledge. In the process it deals with questions on God and Spirit; who we are (eg the purpose of man) ; morality; freedom and responsibility,the role our mind plays in all this; the nature of life; and personal reveleation of truth. The author's own example (an inner Guru on a mountain top) is used extensively throughout, but can be skipped (passages are clearly marked and in italics) . It would be a pity to do so, though, since the book really speaks in two voices: that of the Oracle and that of the author, who clarifies and and elaborates on the Oracle's utterances. Whether you choose to do the visualisations yourself (highly recommended) or just read it for spiritual illumination, there is truth and depth in these pages.'

Renaissance magazine Aug /September 2002
Jimmy Henderson is a Christian mystic and philosopher with an integrated and holistic approach to life. This book reflects his current thinking in trying to reconcile aspects of science, psychology, religion and mysticism to a higher universe of energy and Spirit. This is a book for thinkers. It is not a light read but contains profound thoughts and insights. Written as an allegory of a seeker following a path up a mountain to consult an oracle, it contains a truth, as understood by the writer, that the reader may accept or reject.'
