Originally published as my debut book release back in 2012, The Philosophy of a Mad Man contains a detailed overview of my spiritual journey (Part 1), and an introduction to the key elements of my philosophy (Part 2).
The book includes a vivid and detailed account of a visit to the home of the spiritual guru Mooji, who entered the media spotlight following his appearance on the Russell Brand ‘Under the Skin’ podcast in August 2020. Among a host of other spiritual adventures, the book describes a spiritual retreat experience with Indian shaking meditation teacher Ratu Bagus, whose retreats in Bali are known for being both gruelling and spiritually transformative.
In the philosophy section of the book, I tackle a range of important philosophical topics related to spirituality, including the nature of God, free will, consciousness, and the meaning of life. I argue that a God exists who is not merely a deeper a level of consciousness (which is the way some Eastern religions describe God), but is a personal being with whom we can develop a relationship, and who is intimately involved in every detail of our lives.
The first edition of The Philosophy of a Mad Man was published by SilverWood Books in 2012. With newly refreshed cover art, this second edition of the book, published in 2019 through my imprint Tealight Books, includes an updated introduction and afterword, and is essential reading for anyone on a journey to understand spiritual enlightenment and the big questions surrounding our existence.
