New Novel ‘Link’ Seeks to Ex­pand Un­der­stand­ing of Hu­man­ity’s Shared Spir­i­tual Core

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The vast mys­ter­ies of the uni­verse and spir­i­tu­al­ity have been ex­plored through­out his­tory, and while it is within th­ese meta­phys­i­cal ex­plo­rations that hu­man­ity has sought an­swers, the dis­trac­tions of daily life and at­tach­ments to the phys­i­cal world of­ten in­hibit the pur­suit of spir­i­tual en­light­en­ment. In au­thor Lu­cella Camp­bell’s new novel ‘Link’ she ad­dresses this hu­man in­hi­bi­tion through her ti­tle char­ac­ter—a form­less en­tity from a time­less place called Al­tura. With a deep de­sire to un­der­stand what it means to be hu­man, and a higher call­ing to help hu­man­ity find its way back to its spir­i­tual be­gin­nings, Link ex­ists in a realm of higher con­scious­ness and shared col­lec­tive knowl­edge.

Af­ter many vis­its to Earth as a form­less be­ing, Camp­bell’s pro­tag­o­nist chooses to be­come hu­man so that he can ex­pe­ri­ence, first hand, the hu­man con­di­tion. Link be­friends a 12-year-old boy and his grand­mother in their Belize vil­lage, and ad­justs to his new phys­i­cal form, while also shar­ing his im­mense spir­i­tual knowl­edge with the peo­ple of the vil­lage. As Link builds a hu­man life for him­self, es­tab­lishes re­la­tion­ships, and ex­pe­ri­ences hu­man emo­tions and feel­ings, he de­vel­ops a deeper un­der­stand­ing of why hu­man­ity is alien­ated from its spir­i­tual core.

Based on her own writ­ings from 20 years ago, as well as her search for spir­i­tual con­nec­tion in her own life, Camp­bell de­cided to write and pub­lish ‘Link’ now, at a time when it seems that hu­man­ity is spi­ral­ing away from its “one­ness”.

“I fully rec­og­nize the ur­gency of shar­ing this in­for­ma­tion; it is es­sen­tial for shin­ing light on the skewed path that hu­man­ity and our won­drous planet are on,” ex­plains Camp­bell. “We have made a choice to iden­tify with our phys­i­cal selves over con­nec­tion to our spir­i­tual core. ‘Link’ joins with the other wake-up calls that aim to have us re­mem­ber that we are more than just ma­te­rial be­ings, and we have to make a choice to cre­ate a more en­light­ened phys­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence.”

‘Link’ is pub­lished in ebook for­mat by and is now avail­able at pop­u­lar on­line re­tail­ers in­clud­ing Ama­, Bar­ne­sand­no­, and Ap­ple’s iBook­store.

Lu­cella Camp­bell’s novel ‘LINK’ is an in­spi­ra­tional and timely story of hu­man­ity’s need for spir­i­tual con­nec­tion.
