About the Book

The journey begins with viewing the origin of our universe and following natural evolution, leading to an analysis of the human mind, our greatest asset. After a discussion of the meaning and direction in our life, thoughts are presented to guide and support us in our path, as pronounced in the biblical Beatitudes and in a meditation for nonbelievers. In the end, aging is described as one experiences it.

A view to the future indicates the fundamental problems and opportunities for mankind which should concern us all.

About the Author

Helmut Schwab rose from trying circumstances, studied physics, became an executive in aero-space and high-tech industries. His personal research concentrated on a deeper understanding of the cosmic and biological world we find ourselves living in, on the human mind's capability, and on human society. He pursued philosophy and theology in studying the dichotomy between science and religion, with the question of the consequent meaning or direction of our lives. Schwab wrote with sincere empathy for all the other serching and suffering individuals he encountered, but also with practical mind. He volunteered in the community on environmental issues, concerns of the handicapped, and for low income families in our inner cities. He found joy in life in observing beauty in nature, through participation in the arts-see his published collection of short stories "The Golden Mirror" - and, mainly, in a supportive family and cheerful companionship.
