Gathers interviews with Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, Norman Vincent Peale, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Ram Dass, Rabbi Harold Kushner, B.F. Skinner, Robert Schuller, and Swami Satchidananda
Propelled since childhood by the untimely deaths of his parents, author Bill Elliott has searched for answers to the fundamental questions of existence. What is life's purpose? What is God or Ultimate Reality? Why do people suffer? Does a part of us live on after death? What role do relationships play in life? In his quest, Elliott traveled the world and conversed with twenty leaders of spiritual renown. Time and again, luminaries such as Mother Teresa, H. H. the Dalai Lama, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Ram Dass, and others warmed to Elliott's heartfelt longing for meaning behind the workings of the world. Their views are framed by Elliott's endearing voice: personal, engaging, and remarkably perceptive. Tying Rocks to Clouds is sometimes sad, often funny, and always filled with freshness and joy as it reveals the wisdom of highly spiritual people.
