"Charles K, author and narrator ..... enuf said"
Something like 108 billion people have lived on our planet during its history, and despite all of the experiences in all of the lifetimes of all of those people, we have still not found a way to exist together in peace and harmony, much less create individual lives with a powerfully glorious, intrinsic meaning and a wonderfully joyful purpose. Life has such a meaning and purpose, but across thousands of years only a very small number of human beings seem to have really understood it. Until now. Now, everyone seems to be "getting it" all at once - and agreeing with one another, at last, that it truly is...The Only Thing That Matters.

"A Guide for All Grandparents"

Welcome to the Third Edition of Waking God: The Journey Begins. The Waking God Trilogy is not about the doom and gloom that organized religions would have you believe. It is not about an Armageddon style "end times" that pits good against evil in some final battle where religious dogma is triumphant. Yes, there is a final battle of sorts, but as Mantrella says, "It is not about saving humanity, it never has been."
Focusing on 'worn out religious dogma' as one of the leading causes of human strife, the Trilogy turns the mythical world of good vs. evil on its head. Mantrella, a.k.a. Lucifer, is the champion of humanity, while the Archangel Michael fights to suppress human evolution by preventing the physical birth of the biblical Adam. Mantrella's basic view is summed up when he says, "It is not about saving humanity, it never has been." Human destiny is placed squarely on the shoulders of where it belongs: choice; our thoughts create our reality.

It has power in it: each holder can make one wish.
