Through the innocence of our childhood, we accepted the invisible world of our Spirituality . This was a time when the Angels
rejoiced and shared special moments with us. Without questioning, we believed in the magic of the soul.  We flew to far away
places on the back of the Grecian Pegasus and played hide and see with fairies that lived in the enchanted forests. We looked to
the sky in awe and wonder as the mighty Zeus hurled his powerful lightening bolts and covered our ears to the thunderous
voices of quarreling Gods. Our Guardian Angel became the "secret friend" that no one else could see. We rescued damsels in
distress and fought fire breathing dragons, using a magical sword found in "Grandpa's woodshed".

What happened to us? How and when did we loose our magic and the secret friends of our youth? Could it have been when
someone laughed at the idea of our "secret friend"? Or was it the time when your father checked your damsel rescue, telling you
to get your head out of the clouds and put that piece of old wood back in the woodshed? Well, I guess the time of the loss isn't as
important as the significance of it, is it? Sadly, sooner or later, the child finally loses out to life and it's lessons and the light of
spirituality surrenders to the darkness of matter.

There was a time, not so long ago, that magic was a way of life, surrounding and protecting it's  believers. A time of Moses and
the parting of the Red Sea. A time of King Arthur and Excalibur, Merlin, the sorceror and the Miracles of Christ. Going back into our
history, we can find even a greater Age. It was from this Age, we hear the accounts of flying dragons, cyclops and their third eye.
This was an Age when Angels walked with man and a race of giants ruled the Earth, known as the Titans.

Two thousand years ago, the accounts of these ancient times and it's people were universally accepted and spirituality was a
way of life.  Now we are told that these accounts of the Ancient Times were nothing but childhood fairy tales and that the practice
of spirituality (of the spirit) is supernatural, taboo or New Age nonsense.  This is an unfortunate belief because when we turned
our backs to our Spirit of Light, we stepped right into an Age of Darkness.

Lost in the darkness, we eventually came to forget the ways and wisdoms of our ancient ancestors and soon became dependent
on the teachings of man-made doctrines designed to  bind our souls to a physical world. Spirituality came to be forbidden and
the voices from "within" was coined "imagination".  The loving God of our Ancestors was replaced by a religion which
blasphemed his loving name and tagged us as poor miserable sinners, undeserving of his love and divine gifts.

A true religion, however, is a "search" for God. This search can only be achieved through the guidance of our Higher Self, where
knowledge and love reigns. Through enlightenment, spiritual faculties will open and blossom, like petals of a flower, with the
Universe backing our very efforts.  The treasures we enjoyed as a child are only a glimpse to the real treasures that will be given
to us as we grow in our own spirituality.

In my youth, I attended church on Sundays, with my mother. Looking back, I remember how we would all gather outside the
church, before service. The men clustered in one group and discussed local politics and predicted the yearly crop outcomes. The
women, in another group, gossiped and exchanged recipes. We children stood around uncomfortably, wishing to be either at the
old swimming hole or fishing down at the nearby Kickapoo River. At the ringing of the church bells, we would quietly go inside
and take our seats. As the minister raised his arms, we stood and sang our first hymn of praise. Up until this point of events, I
really had no problem with church. But then would come the"dreaded" sermon with the minister preaching of this God full of
wrath that punished his children by throwing them into the burning pits of Hell. The further the minister progressed into his
sermon, the deeper I sank into my pew. By the time he finished and the collection plate was passed around, the congregation
was more than ready to pay the price for their weekly salvation!

As a child, like most of you, I believed without question the wisdom and authenticity of my elders. Only until later, in my youth, did I
start noticing certain discrepancies that made me start questioning the validity of some of their truths. We, as adults, think little of
misrepresenting the magic in life and realize less the damage done by creating fallacies. Each fallacy, brought to light,
disillusions the child, bringing on a decline of spirituality, eventually taking the light out of the child and replacing this void with

Although I may have chocked up the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus as a fallacy, the tradition religious beliefs of my youth carried
and guided me into my adulthood. Life experiences through the years, however, began shedding light on certain truths that
conflicted with those beliefs. In the beginning, true to Christian form, I denied any possibilityThat there was error in my faith. For
years I chose to ignore my Inner Voice and followed the ways of my old faith. However, the paradoxes I encountered in my religion
finally forced me to partake on a spiritual quest, which ultimately changed my life forever.

Ten years ago, I shed the cloth of my past and partook on a journey into an unknown realm, clothed only with the insatiable
desire to know the truth of my divine heritage. Knowing the possibilities of losing family, home, friends, business, wealth and
virtually my very soul, I stepped into the most frightening and rewarding experience of my life.

I set off on a journey without a map and fell into many snares and detours along the way. Without the safety net of my past, I had
to learn how to blaze my own trail. During those times, I learned that in order to appreciate the positives in my life, I needed to
experience the negatives as well.

In my quest, I came to the realization that there is not one thing that our Creator has held back from us, not of himself, his
creations, the workings of his creations, nor of his plans for us. I will go a step further with this statement in saying, "He wants us
to know."

God works through his laws and in order to find him, you need to know , understand , accept and abide by them. If you can do
this, Our Creator will share great knowledge with you, but in return, upon hearing these truths, you are then required to share
them with others. These truths , through the pages of this book, I shall now share with you.

Peace and Love Be With you.

Hey Mary! I finished reading your book "Living in the
Light". Freakin' AWESOME! What a wonderful writer you
are. So much research, love and knowingness was put
into this. Time to go back through and highlight all the
personal truths, deep meanings and quotables. I may
have to keep a spare highlighter on hand in case I run
out of ink.

It is a rare and special treat when a book of this
magnitude is discovered. Living in the Light is not a
book merely to be read; it is a book to be experienced!
The cover description of this awe-inspiring work only
hints at its true depth. It is a journey into the fascinating
realm of the inner-self; a journey that this reader felt
quite privileged to embark upon. The depth and breadth
of Ms. Sutherland’s profoundly insightful truths and
wisdom are singularly empowering and quite beyond
mere written description. I do not recall the last time the
written word had such an impact on my accrued overall
view of who I am and what my place is in the grand
scheme of life (the Holy Bible notwithstanding).

And though I have long believed in the reincarnation of
the soul, Living in the Light has served to clarify,
confirm and validate this evolution of our metaphysical
self. As Ms. Sutherland points out in this literary gift to
the world;I am a planetary citizen, honoring the life of
the earth, and all beings upon the earth. As a child of
the Earth, I honor the sacredness of all life, and I
acknowledge all humanity as my family. I am a child of
freedom, committed to protecting and restoring this
basic right to all humans everywhere. I choose to live
the fullness of my human potential as a unique and
creative being of light. Living in the Light is not the
proverbial self-help guide, nor is it the culmination of
the author’s personal views. It is an extraordinarily well-
researched, heartfelt and philosophical work that dares
to break the genre barrier and create a genus all its
own. It should not only be read or reviewed, but rather,
celebrated for its uniqueness and for the knowledge it
offers the reader. In short, astounding does not begin
to sum up this amazing and often miraculous journey
into the true self. Don’t miss this astounding work of
literary genius! You too can set out upon your own
powerful, soul-searching journey; order your copy
today! Five Stars!

Reclamation Project.

Living in The Light is a well-documented simply written
book of instructions on how to live abundantly. The
author has it together and leads you by the hand as you
go from kindergarten to graduation through the school
of life. She enlarges your perspective so that it
becomes clear where you fit in the universe; not just
this world or this country but these are included too. It is
a course in humanity and planetarianism. The
essences of the world's religions are distilled to where
they merge in a unified pattern uniting Jews,
Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Buddhists
and all other religions of the world. It clarifies the road
we are all on explaining how we got to where we are
and indicating what to expect next.

Science and religion are brought together, each
supplementing and strengthening the other.
Reincarnation to government experiments with the
paranormal are all explained. If you could choose only
one book to keep with you for the rest of your life, this
should be the one.

Michael Peter-Moses,

Living in the Light is beautiful, wonderful, informative
and full of love

I am totally astonished and stand in awe at Mary
Sutherland's vast resources and knowledge. This can
only construct the thoughts that she is truly a chosen
one of God. May God continue to live within her and
allow her to share his love.

I liked the depth of Living In The Light. I can read a
chapter, put it down for a few days, and come back to
read the very same chapter and still learn something
new. .Mary has really done her homework. The Book is
Jim Aho, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Living in the Light is a very enlightening book. I have
read the preview chapters and find them very smart,
witty and easy to understand. It helped me to realize
what was really important in life. I have had many
explanations as to how God is within us, but I always
felt that I was undeserving and unworthy. After reading
Living in the Light, I realized this was not so. We are all
worthy and through our Divine heritage, entitled to his
gifts. I am a Christian but believe, regardless of what a
person's faith may be, Living in the Light, will help them
to achieve a higher understanding of their spirituality
and place in life.

I just can't tell you how much Mary Sutherland's book
touched home with me. I have been struggling for a
while now with my ingrained thoughts on how religion
is supposed to be. How it is supposed to be is not
what feels right to me. So when I read the excerpts of
your book I knew right away that my coming across your
book at this time in my life was meant to be. I think your
book is really going to help me get past some of these
issues that have been bogging me down. And I can't
tell you how much I appreciate that.
