The Silent Steps of Grace
a new novel by Alan Mesher


BOOK ONE OF THE TENZIN TRILOGY

 

Alan Mesher has written an unfolding adventure of an extraordinary boy who escapes the Chinese invasion of Tibet and the murder of hundreds of thousands of Tibetans to find himself in Los Angeles wearing a tattered monk’s robe and speaking no English.

This is a deeply spiritual book in the form of a novel-at-its-best. I was so hooked that I would have read it in a single session had I started it in the morning.

The writing is clear, the characters well-developed and the grand story unfolds with enthusiasm. I finished reading it as a better man than when I began.

-Harvey Austin, M.D.

 

I read a lot. This is the greatest book I have ever read. I don’t want to finish it!

-Harriet Kozol

Tenzin is irresistible. I wish I had his phone number when I needed a bit of comforting myself.

-Maureen Barron, Vice President & Editor-in-Chief, Penguin Books & the New American Library, retired

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience of “The Silent Steps of Grace”. I have gotten away from reading but I could not put the book down. It moved me on so very many levels and at the end it opened a floodgate of emotion (all waiting to be released). I have been a prolific reader and no book has ever produced such a deep response in me. Thank you. 

To all readers this is a beautiful written book that creates a tapestry of history, spirituality, conspiracy and life. Wisdom on many levels.

-Carolynne Melnyk, Canada

The Silent Steps of Grace is an inspired novel.

-Midwest Book Review

At one point in The Silent Steps of Grace, the narrator tells us that “. . . Grace could be hard and merciless. She requires you to travel down a long dark tunnel before she allows you to emerge into the light.” In his first novel, author Alan Mesher has crafted an intricate spiritual adventure through which readers may experience the many shades and textures of darkness of this world. The atrocities of war. The bitter poison of betrayal. The loneliness of exile. And yet, through it all, Grace’s presence glimmers steadfast at the end of the tunnel, relentlessly guiding the reader to emerge into the light.

The Silent Steps of Grace is the story of Tenzin, a tibetan monk, a true spiritual warrior who is willing to walk through the darkness as often as it rises to strike him down. More important, he is a man who is willing to devote his life to teaching others how to find the strength and wisdom to take those sometimes subtle, often elegant, always silent steps of grace. As Tenzin tells his friend, “No one is coming to save us. Not in Tibet. Not in America or anywhere else. We must save ourselves.”

I recommend that you read The Silent Steps of Grace. Savor it. The subtle layers and echoing themes of Mesher’s writing will open your heart and make it stronger. It will show you that there is always a way to find the light, even when you are navigating the deepest darkness.

I think of Tenzin often. His story stays with me as if he is an old friend I have neglected to contact for a while. I wonder what he’s up to, and I look forward to hearing about his latest adventures when I see him again. Thank goodness this is the first volume of a trilogy. I will be happy to hear from my old friend and to discover where his next adventures take us.

At one of many profound moments in this story, Tenzin says, “A moment of beauty requires no apology.” And so it is with The Silent Steps of Grace. A moment of beauty. You will not be disappointed.

The Silent Steps of Grace is one of the best books I have ever read. Not only does it have an interesting and captivating story line, but it is also full of the wisdom and history of Tibet. It is also written with a creative and heart-warming flare. As someone who is not an avid reader, I can honestly say that I couldn’t put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed many hours living with Mesher’s fascinating and lovable characters.

- Amazon review

I’ve just finished a remarkable book written by a remarkable man. It’s one of the best I’ve read in years, and a thoroughly enjoyable read! The Silent Steps of Grace is said to be “a gripping tale of tragedy, transformation, and triumph.” For a historical novel (that could very well be a true story!) it’s definitely that and more! Written by world renowned healer and author Alan Mesher, this latest work is a true masterpiece of the adventure of “the quest” offering universal spiritual truths in an extraordinarily appealing style. Set against the backdrop of the Chinese invasion and slaughter of Tibet and the 1960s, we follow the life and journey of a young Tibetan, Tenzin Osun, as he makes his way from orphan in Tibet to spiritual Master in California.
I found it difficult to put down this book. It is engaging, well written, intriguing, beguiling, and invites us on a journey of self-discovery via the timeless tests and lessons the characters confront and what they learn from their challenges. As one reviewer put it, “The novel’s central character, Tenzin, is the sort of irresistibly wise friend that we all wish we had.” It’s one of those rare books that the closer you get to the end, the more you wish it were not ending. The good news is we are told it is Book One of the Tenzin Trilogy, so we can expect this tale of love, courage, adventure, and journey into higher awareness to continue! Ultimately, it is the story of the triumph of higher spiritual awareness over the negativity that pervades our world, and has for a while. Tenzin’s wisdom is infectious, and yes, he is “irresistible.” While I’ve never taken to pedantic works, there’s nothing of that sort of teaching here. The way that Alan tells this timeless tale of a young Tibetan Buddhist’s “hero’s journey,” the more I read, the more I found myself pondering Tenzin’s sage advice about certain very human issues, problems, and challenges. Through the wisdom of this work, we come to realize the applicability of universal truths offered through the very human characters. That makes this book worth reading, enjoying, and taking to heart. I wholeheartedly look forward to reading part two, scheduled to come out in 2014!

Dear Alan, I really enjoyed reading your book immensely and I am not an avid reader.  Your book  has really helped me grow in my present life. It has opened me to looking at my inner truth, and wanting to continue to look at where I would like to grow in my life.  I have definitely noticed a shift in my life. I have started to do meditation, looking at giving more to others, and also at the Illuminati, and how corrupt it is. I would say it is a must read for anyone who is wanting to become more self aware, and understanding the world we truly live in. I will want to reread your book again, and look forward to your next book. Thank you for writing such an amazing book.

THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE is a gripping tale of tragedy, transformation, and triumph. It spans the turbulent period in world history from 1925 to 1967 with particular emphasis on the Tibetan Holocaust and the Vietnam War. The central character, Tenzin, is a young Tibetan monk of exceptional promise. When the Chinese invade Tibet and approach his monastery, Tenzin’s superiors order him to flee. He is to cross the Himalayas and make his way to the American embassy in Delhi where an airplane ticket waits for him. He arrives in Los Angeles months later, alone and exhausted. Eventually, he learns that the Chinese have executed everyone he loves. Overwhelmed by grief, he slowly claws his way out of despair to become a beacon of hope in his adopted land.

THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE provides the template for the hero’s journey we all must take if we are to lead fulfilling and evolved lives. It will take you on a deeply emotional adventure, and provide you with sage advice when confronted with life’s relentless challenges.

If you’re looking for a spellbinding tale THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE will move you. If you’re a seeker of higher truth THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE will inspire you. If life has dealt you a crushing blow THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE will help you stand up and move forward again. If you wonder why America and the rest of the world has been morally degraded and destabilized the SILENT STEPS OF GRACE will illuminate the dark agenda now threatening Earth. If you wonder if there’s an answer to the planet’s plight, and fear it’s too late even if there is, THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE will give you hope and courage.

Reading the words of this incredible work brought me through a wide range of laughter, tears, power and revelation. I could not put it down! Alan Mesher has created an incredible statement of LIFE. I learned more from this one literary masterpiece, than I had from years of studying metaphysics. I look forward to more!

There’s even more!

In addition, you will also encounter important elements of the HIDDEN HISTORY of the United States. Dan Brown brought the fictional Illuminati to your attention in the DaVinci Code. Now THE SECRET STEPS OF GRACE introduces you to the real Illuminati and their hidden agenda to degrade, destabilize, and destroy America. This explosive information has been hidden by the Powers That Be for centuries. Here’s a small sample of what you will find in THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE.

  • The amazing correlations between the assassinations of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F Kennedy.
  • Seven days before he was assassinated JFK said, “There is a plot to enslave every man, woman and child in this country. Before I leave this high and noble office I intend to expose that plot.”
  • The probable role of an international secret society in both Presidential assassinations.
  • Two great American heroes from the 1930’s you have never heard of. Why they are still important. One saved American democracy – but only for a time. The other tried to save our economy, preserve our individual freedoms, and safeguard our way of life. He died under mysterious circumstances after giving an impassioned and ground breaking speech on the floor of Congress.
  • The secret agenda to reduce the American standard of living and destroy the middle class. How that impacts you, your family’s future, the country and the world.
  • The real cause of the Civil War.
  • What German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck had to say about who caused the Civil War and why the Powers That Be wanted it. Here’s a hint. The war wasn’t fought to free the slaves or preserve the Union, like the textbooks want you to believe.
  • Why President Lincoln thought that the Confederacy was the least significant threat facing the Union. The more significant threat was kept from the public and still is.
  • President Woodrow Wilson’s deathbed confession.
  • Thomas Jefferson’s view on central bankers.
  • John F Kennedy’s warning to the world.
  • Confederate General Albert Pike’s central role in crafting the agenda of the United States through the twentieth and early twenty first centuries.
  • Giuseppe Manzini, founder of the Mafia, and his secret collaboration with Albert Pike to plan Three World Wars. (We’ve already had two, is a third waiting in the wings?)
  • The real cause of multiple personality disorder (now called disassociative disorder) and how it is used to create human robots, destabilize society and destroy the social order.
  • And much more.

The Silent Steps of Grace is a beautifully written and powerful story of spiritual triumph against all odds. There are many important spiritual truths revealed throughout the narrative that will resonate in your life and inspire you to action. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an engaging story that can transform their lives.

Excerpts from THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE

The Power of Love

Emily felt a powerful current sweep through her. She looked up to see successive waves of golden light pouring out of Tenzin’s hands. The auditorium glowed with light. The restive audience grew calm. All eyes were on Tenzin.

“At the heart of the universe there is only love,” he began. “In the core of each person’s soul there is only love. When we find that place inside us, we are whole and one with all that is. The discovery of that place of love inside us is the purpose of our life on earth. We are all here to transform and redeem ourselves. None of us has fully mastered love. Love is the language of infinity. When we finally learn to speak it, The Supreme Truth becomes alive in this world. People everywhere will be at peace. Whether the Supreme Truth lives in this world or is shut out of it, is up to us. One thing is certain. The Supreme Truth won’t enter our lives until we love without judgment and without conditions. That’s the law. The more we grow in love, the greater presence and power the Supreme Truth has in our lives and in this world. Don’t blame the Supreme Truth when bad things happen. Become more loving. Bad things occur when people turn away from love.” Pg 72-73

You Are Not a Victim

Tenzin shrugged. “You choose to grow or you choose not to grow. A spiritual warrior chooses to face himself.”

“And if I don’t?”

“You will have more of what you have now. Failure. Confusion. Pain.”

“Then I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t. I don’t have a choice, do I?”

“You’re not damned, Charlie. That’s just what you decided when you were a child and what your subconscious mind still believes. The subconscious mind does not have a filter for wrong conclusions. It believes whatever you tell it and creates your reality based on those beliefs. Your instruction set is flawed and self-destructive, but that can be corrected. You always have a choice. You can choose to change your imprinting or do nothing and let it be the cause of your undoing. Most people spend their lives controlled by bad internal programming. They blame their parents, their spouses, their children or their bosses for their problems. They never realize that they have the power to change everything in their lives. Change the inside and the outside changes. Blame the outside and nothing changes. Where is your power, Charlie? in taking responsibility or in assigning blame?”

Charlie sighed. “In taking responsibility.”

“That’s right. What you don’t resolve in this lifetime you will have to resolve in a future lifetime. Death is just an interlude between lives. It’s always better to learn your lessons now. It’s harder to do in the future. Your life is in your hands, Charlie. What are you going to do with it?” Pg 155

Real Change

“We can only do what we can. Our task is to open people to the true power inside them. The world will change through the power of silence, not through the constant proliferation of noise. When we meditate in silence and connect with the Oneness we attract the energies that will change the world. That is the way to bring about a real and lasting change. Running around, protesting this and that, giving speeches and holding rallies are not lasting solutions. They are just more noise and emotion. The conspiracy operates unseen and unknown from deep in the shadows. Secrecy is its key. Silence is ours. In silence we feel the Oneness and become clear and peaceful. We are true agents of change, then. That is the real change the world needs.” Pg 163
