Yes! I Will Write Your Story by Gere Rihs is an example of how a small book can describe a canvas as large as the universe; succinctly, clearly and simply. The book is a noteworthy addition to any philosopher's or theologian’s library, because it builds on what mankind has built till now, and takes one beyond into the intricate mysteries of the cosmos. The author states at the very outset that he has an overarching belief that we are not alone, but only latecomers in the extraordinary cosmos, setting the tone for the book, and instilling curiosity in the minds of readers. The author uses the chief protagonist, a metaphysical being named ‘Ket’ around which to weave his story effectively. He describes 'Ket’ as a higher being but not a God; a powerful manifestation of a ‘higher consciousness’ that pervades the entire universe.

The cover of the book is attractive, and the formatting is good. This book, though small in size, seems to have been the outcome of very intensive research, deep reflection on what the author calls a ‘stifling and limiting view of our present cultural paradigms,’ and an intense study of the evolution of intelligent and conscious thought of Homo Sapiens on this little blue planet on the edge of the galaxy. The book contains references to the writings and thoughts of all the major religions since the time of the emergence of the Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens around 200 000 years ago in Africa till the present day. The book is a fascinating study for both advocates of the mental growth thread, as well as the votaries of the paradigms of the scientific and technological stream. Do both streams intertwine and finally qualify to be mentored by the ‘higher beings’ to guide humanity to the sacred mission of integrating all life towards its full self-awareness? The shattering climax is at Mt. Kailash; is mankind ready to join as ‘One with the Infinite Diversity?’ Gere Rihs has penned a monumental philosophical work

Yes! I Will Write Your Story: Spiritual Milestones on the Human Journey is a non-fiction metaphysical work written by Gere Rihs. Who or what is Ket and what influences did he have on the development of life throughout the universe? Rihs, a Swiss-born architect, who later moved to Australia, a move which played a large part in his understanding of the role visions and dreams play in evolution and his understanding of the intelligence behind those promptings, eloquently sets out his theory regarding this entity. Rihs begins his work with his assertion that Intelligent Life was around for eons before early man started living in caves and developing the means to communicate, use tools and make music. He posits the role of a being called Ket who interacted with early man and still plays an active role in man's continuing development. While present day events seem to showcase real, continuing problems in society, the general, overwhelming desire of the vast majority of earth's people is to live in peace and harmony. While acknowledging the progress made in health care, educational resources and technology, Rihs sees room for improvement as mankind continues "our slow shuffle towards a cosmic maturity."

Gere Rihs' non-fiction philosophical work is not an easy read, but an extended and careful study of the insights shared within yields great harvests. I especially enjoyed seeing the march of time from Deep Space through to the Big Bang and onto the evolution of the Neanderthal, Homo Erectus and Homo Sapiens. I was fascinated with seeing Ket's vision and purpose aligned with the development of those early humans and their earliest forays into creative expressions of art, music and language. His stories on the Mystics and their interaction with Ket are fascinating, as is his brief introductions to other philosophical trends and writings, including his discussions of the Upanishads, Gautama Buddha, Confucius and Jesus of Nazareth.

While man still flounders around quite a bit, with missteps more obvious at some times than others, it is a comforting premise that Ket is still around, spreading his knowledge and continuing to influence man's development. This thoughtful and inspiring work is well worth the conscious effort to remove oneself from all distractions in order to gain an understanding of its intent and purpose. Yes! I Will Write Your Story: Spiritual Milestones on the Human Journey is highly recommended.
