Fading Toward Enlightenment by Wayne Wirs is by all odds a well constructed book of superior quality – it will for certain run multiple readings. I adored the feel of the pages as I turned them. I would classify this book as a of value, inspirational, self-help instrument for those looking for for internal serenity. Wayne shares his private experiences while he seeks to come to terms with himself and life as a whole through this esthetic work of art.
Wayne is genuinely a searcher of understanding. I was reminded at times of Joseph Campbell throughout the book, as the two center on related subjects. Wayne shares his journey towards reason that takes him through vigorous studies of occult and myths, journeying into himself and then out once more. He dreams of being able to achieve beyond the self-importance.
Attractive, attention-demanding monochrome pics are increased by the deep-thinking quotes and the author’s excellent discussions. Each point in his travel is followed by the elegant photographs, and the pics add depth to the text – feeding one another. I discovered that I would read a sentence and then look at the pic; to and fro - each page a slow and appreciated action to relish. Published to prompt others to dig deep into finding out who they are, Wayne asks us (as he asks himself) "Who are you behind those interfering ideas?"
The question and answer interview at the end of the book was rather helpful in discovering more about the author’s personal side and his individual opinions. He also includes a list of resources to assist the reader interested in advancing their journey."
