Composed in the time-honored style of The Tao Te Ching, and The Golden Sayings of Epictetus, Guideposts to the Heart is a wise collection of individual "thought-nuggets" that can be easily read in a day, yet absorbed only through the course of a lifetime. It is best read slowly, a bit at a time, on a bus or train, at a lake or park, or during the interstices of a busy day. If you are sincere, you will discover the best of yourself in its pages. 

Garth J. Hallett is a nonfiction book and article writer, and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). His official credentials also include an MA in Political Science from the University of Connecticut, and a BA in History and English from Fairfield University. 

His spiritual quest began in earnest during his early-to-mid twenties, when he became an avid practitioner of insight meditation, and of the teachings and techniques of Paramahansa Yogananda, as imparted through The Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. He came to experience, through his dedicated efforts, and through the insistent promptings of an evidently cooperative universe, the shock and wonder of a kundalini awakening. He thus became intensely aware, in a manner reminiscent of Hamlet in his words to Horatio, of how much more there was to life than was dreamt of in the world's (materialistic) philosophies. 

Though immersed in Eastern practices, he retains a respectful regard for his earlier Catholic training, and seeks to live his life from that spiritual center from which all true religions are one.
