Visionary/Author R.M. Soccolich was not an ordinary child. At nine years of age, he wrote his first essay, it was called China of the Mind and dealt with his reflections on the prevailing social hypocrisy he found in his school, his catholic church and in the nature of his diverse, yet painfully similar, peers.  
        By the time Soccolich reached High School, his ironic outlook upon the world found him deeply entrenched in the relentless search for the spiritual essence of material existentialism and the synthesis of all opposites he found in his perceptive path!  
        Soccolich had come to see, in the dawn of his youth, the deep and paradoxical nature of truth. He knew this truth, which he had come to see so clearly, would never define itself as this or that. No, this truth, this truth, was always going to reveal itself as a dynamic synthesis between this AND that, a formula which could (and would) be expressed in a thousand different ways.  
        It was this gathered intuition, and nothing less, which led Soccolich to amass massive files of global information. And, it was this intuition which challenged Soccolich to go one step further and cross-correlate this huge catalogue of information into the creation, or rather synthesis of, a dense archive of purposeful human history.  
        He decided to dive right into the belly of the beast; that is to say he leapt square into the center of the seemingly innate contradiction of mankind in its sum total experience!  
        After processing the results of this faithful leap, an initial outline of mankind’s contradictory truth appeared before him.  With tongue in cheek, he decided to call the collection: The 100 Steps Necessary for Survival on the Earth.  
        It was right about this time when Soccolich met Doctor and Publisher, Mr. Sam Chekwas. It was Sam, a Nigerian national educated in Greece, who encouraged Soccolich to elaborate upon his initial outline and have it published exactly as it stood. Within a year, the outline, now a book, was published by Seaburn Publishing Group.  
        The book’s popularity soon became a catalyst to transform its concept into a series of publications. These publications were called The Survival Series and brought the world a slew of notable titles, including:

The 100 Steps Necessary for Survival in the Global Village
The 100 Steps Necessary for Survival in America for People of Color
The 100 Steps Necessary for Survival in a Stressful Environment
Soccolich next turned his juggernaut of global research toward the significant and historic direction of universal symbolism.  
            Three years of research gave birth to Soccolich’s third and most popular book to date. It was called Night Symbols, 11000 Dreams and Interpretations. In dictionary form, the work laid out the fundamental bearing of historic symbolism in the human experience. The book detailed countless correlates of cultural and ethnic images and clearly uncovered the Unconscious mind of the dreamer as well as the artist and even to a large extent, the spiritualist.  
            The book achieved #1 in sales to libraries in the continental United States and Canada for Small Press Publications. The book went on to be sold in Greece, Germany, the Netherlands, England and France (at the time of this printing).  
        Inspired by the spiritual content of this popular work, Soccolich collaborated with Dr. Chekwas to create a short story novella based on the spiritual principle known as Karma. This book was called Mischievous Acts and Repercussions and received, and still receives, far reaching critical acclaim.  
            However, Soccolich felt he was barely scraping the surface of his expression and enthusiastic content. He immediately went to work on a spiritual opus titled Divinity’s Magick Works.  
        Four years in the making, Divinity’s Magick Works ambitiously sought to detail and place into vital chronology one continually occurring spiritual path which occurred in the historic record of so many diverse peoples over and over again in the unique archetype of their own cultural signatures. The similarity of the widely removed spiritual Icons of so many cultures which fluidly created a single dynamic path of transcendence was uncanny and had to be seen to be believed.  
            Arguably remarkable, the book was inspired not only in its content which was divinely rich and captivating, but also in its dynamic writing style. Soccolich managed to capture the subtle hypnotic quality of each prayer/meditation which unfolded the next expanding layer of the deeply resonant universal path found in the finished product. The work was so aptly titled Divinity’s Magick Works and deserves to be considered a liturgical text in and of itself.  
            I invite all readers to join the path which led to the Transcendent Vision of  Soccolich. It’s a wild, roller coaster ride of a pilgrimage, but in the end, its a journey well worth the tight seatbelt, bells and world of flashing lights.
