Author Biography

My experiences over the years led to the book. Although I do not discuss myself at all in the book, I also do not write anything that is not based on my own experiential journey.

The primary objective of the book is to provoke thought. We need to seriously consider what drives human interactions and why we are so opposed to each other and nature.

If one can truly appreciate the enormous discrepancy inherent in current spiritual practices today as defined by two objective realities stated by Rob Taylor in his devastatingly, creatively perceptive book, The Irreducible Primary …

“Unconditional love is the requisite predecessor to peace and equality. This is an unalterable fact of human reality.”

“'Unconditional love’ is merely a catch-phrase strategically inserted into political, religious, and social rhetoric.”

… then one might fully appreciate the incredible intelligence and thoughtfulness that went into writing this concise but vitally important work. This is not religious pablum served to pacify the masses. This is nourishment meant to feed the full adult processing his/her individual spiritual transformation.

“Mindfulness, compassion, and gratitude are the imperative conducts of inner work.”

“Authentic spiritual effort is the antithesis of blind faith.”

With The Irreducible Primary, Rob Taylor wields an infamous two-edged sword of truth, mindful only of presenting the starkest reality behind that truth: that we as individuals are influenced by and exert determinative influence upon the entire wholeness of creation; creating as a species either consuming chaos or eternal peace - something rarely encountered or discussed in most other spiritual commentaries, orthodox or New Age. With perceptive depth sufficient to intimidate the timid, Mr. Taylor speaks to those who have committed to the practice of inner work, more demanding than social, ecological, or political activism, and in the end the only work that makes such activism effective. Mr. Taylor pulls no punches, but the engrossed reader is left unassaulted – retaining only a sense of mindfulness, compassion, and gratitude as exhibited by this amazing author.
