EUGENE CROWLEY - Upside Down World: The Loss Of The Sacred Cosmos -
Eugene Crowley, Jr., was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, in 1944. He spent thirty-two years teaching high school English Grammar, World Literature, and Mythology in Chicago. He earned a Master's degree in General Psychology from Roosevelt University in Chicago. He is a former member of the Jungian Institute in Evanston, Illinois. He has traveled throughout the United States, Europe, and South America. In his first professional attempt in writing, he extends the focus of his Master's thesis, "Meaning in Life for Urban Adolescents", to adults by encouraging them to reach a level of maturity by living more harmoniously with themselves, their fellow man, and the universe. The author sees a need for an overhauling or a reinventing of Western culture with the application of the moral and wise traditions that had given the Native American Indians and ancient civilizations wholeness, order, and harmony. These cultures maintained a balance with themselves and nature. While many universities are eliminating their Classical Studies, the author sees a need in understanding the past civilizations' spiritual, psychological, and holistic approaches to life. These approaches gave them serenity and security in their connection with the universe. They knew their place in the "Big Picture". Mr. Crowley wants to share his compassion and enthusiasm in predicting what other writers are forecasting, the dawning of a new "Age of Wisdom", a Renaissance, or Enlightenment where Western man will discover his true inner nature and put it to use to serve humanity. In his compassion to help humanity by informing them of the meaning of life, Crowley encourages everyone to discover the sacredness of the Self, nature, and the universe. With these tasks completed diligently, there should be optimism for a "New Enlightenment" and the restoration of the sacred cosmos. -
