About the author:
Richard Omura feels he was fortunate to have the opportunity to become deeply immersed in two cultures, Japanese and American, enabling him to see how words and actions are so strongly influenced by the box of culture and tradition. His background and origin seems to have designed him just for this purpose for he is constantly on the lookout searching the horizon for answers to questions that are about to be posed.
His experiences in the world has enabled him to come up with fresh new perspectives. He has delved into transcendental states of consciousness and discovered insights into himself and the universe with explorations into religion, spirituality, science and philosophy. He brings to his work a lifetime of experiences in various disciplines and sources of insight such as Buddhism, Transcendental Meditation, The Urantia Book, Science of Mind, and katsugen as well as study of the life and teachings of Jesus, the works of Deepak Chopra, Thich Nacht Hanh, Krishnamurti, Lao Tse, and keeps up with the latest discoveries in science and stays abreast of current trends.
Aside from creative, spiritual and intellectual pursuits, he is also an adventurer. He has swam with dolphins, surfed big waves in Hawaii, communicated with whales, been in Hollywood films, played Eskimo baseball with Inuits, lead tv crews to over 40 states, have composed, recorded and produced original music, have written four books, six screenplays, been a radio DJ and copywriter, have gigged in various clubs in Los Angeles with his blues band, been a nightclub manager, and currently works as a professional photographer and writer.
The Whole Universe Book
Navigating Time, Space and Spirit With The Awesome Human Vehicle
Richard S. Omura
The Whole Universe Book takes patterns observable in nature and explains how the universe works, even venturing ambitiously into such concepts as how to achieve eternal life and the spiritual evolution of our civilization. Included are detailed methods on how to apply these ideas to make our lives better, exploring free will, health, positive thinking, meditation and balancing science with spirituality.
Appropo to the title, this book achieves a sweeping wholistic view of the universe from both the scientific and spiritual viewpoints. Using the metaphor of the human being as a vehicle, the book discusses who and what we are, where we are going and how to get there.
Along the way, many fascinating subjects are linked to observable natural patterns, from spiritual and extra-terrestrial intelligences, Eastern and Western religious thought, to a new perspective of God. Then we are propelled into transcendent insights of the importance of personal growth and evolution, the latest discoveries in neuro-science, and the Gaia theory which posits that the Earth is a living organism. The book is filled with graphics, original photos and verse in order to provide a framework that does not limit itself to being a scientific or spiritual work but rather an artistic one.
*Note: This b&W 2nd Edition (2nd) includes 30 pages of new insights with black and white photos and charts, some new.
