Grandiosity and the Empowerment of the Spiritual and Artistic by R.S. Pearson

R.S. Pearson's two recent books on hyperreligiosity and hallucinations in religious practice key in on two of the biggest problems facing spiritual seekers today. He has finished the third in this three book series on documenting the major problems that can happen to people interested in religious ideas. This time the subject matter also includes problems that artists encounter. These three books have a cross cultural appeal since many are interested in spirituality, while others are concerned about the problems that religious beliefs can create. This book is called "Grandiosity and the Empowerment of the Spiritual and Artistic."

To focus on the spiritual and artistic types of grandiosity is important because this is where some of the greatest growth in society can come about. If grandiose artists and spiritual seekers became more empowered to what they could really do in the world, it would contribute much to society. This book points out that grandiosity is common but hidden. If the grandiose can have their understanding grow, and develop more empowerment in their lives, they may find that the world needs them, as they believed it did, but in a direct way that has a very present application.

"In the midst of the growing 'Amusement Park' mentality of today's spiritual "movements," one man has been brave enough to address the dangers involved in being a seeker. Mr. Pearson does not come across as an op- ponent to religion but seems to speak to us from the heart. Every person claiming to be a student of spiritu- ality should have this volume on their bookshelf!"

A Reader

Like Tristan Tzara's Dada Manifestos and Andre Breton's Surrealist Manifestos, philosopher/artist Robert Pearson delivers a unique defining work for his Virtuism philosophy. This book is a work of virtue and deserves a place of honor next to Tzara and Breton on my bookcase and yours too!

Pearson's two books on psychological problems in spiritual practice have been called a "Lucuna in the Literature" by a psychologist, who was not able to give signed endorsements because of his position in an organization that did not allow members to make endorsements.
