Martino aims to illuminate men and women from within, to depict the conscious mind as the only expression of deeper human needs...

Journey Back Home (English Edition),
by Mauro Martino,

JOURNEY BACK HOME will appeal to those who find themselves always somewhat restless, even as their fireplaces roar with warmth and light, and with cup of coffee in hand and with inner feelings and inner thoughts sit in armchair and fashion out the journey that will deliver one to his true home. JOURNEY BACK HOME will appeal to all who would wish to pinch the final hole of the cocoon shut, surrender to that darkness and ultimate death within this cocoon, and unfold as something more beautiful; something ready to fly.

“Martino aims to illuminate men and women from within, to depict the conscious mind as the only expression of deeper human needs, the soul’s search for a more profound meaning in a spiritually arid world.

However, because of his love and trust for his Master, because of his new faith in a new knowledge that he is learning and living, Abdul Ghani says ‘no’ to each invitation and instead asks that his Master continue the trip with him to its final destination…
