It is the story of Lorenzo, a young man following the longing of his soul, who takes a spiritual pilgrimage from his native city of Teruel to Toledo, the spiritual center of medieval Spain. Along his particular “hero´s journey”, he encounters several adventures and tests until he arrives in the capital of Castile. In Toledo, he meets the great sages of his time who help him discover a new dimension of reality. A novel full of adventure, emotion, knowledge, romance…
“THE CALLING is about looking for and finding the Spiritual Path. This is clearly defined by the characters the “Seeker” Lorenzo meets and the situations he encounters in his search for enlightenment. Set in a difficult historical epoch, this is not easy. Politics and religion struggle in medieval Spain where three cultures meet in conflict not just in the social arena but at the psychological and spiritual levels. The tests of the seeker are both seductive and frightening. These are overcome by great effort and with the aid of good people as well as heavenly intervention. It is a drma that involves the esoteric aspect of history. This book will be a very useful guide to the reader as the Door to the Way. Gonzalo S. Rey takes the reader the many steps along the Path with much insight.”
