These prayers and meditations are traces of an experiment, writes Gerald Heard in his Introduction to Prayers and Meditations. Seven were written by one of our ablest authors. That experiment was Trabuco College, which Heard founded in California in 1941. The ablest author was Aldous Huxley, Heard's sometime co-adventurer in mystical voyages. Along with Huxley's seven contributions are selections by St. Albert, St. Anselm, Dionysius the Areopagite, William H. Forthman, and Margaret Gage. Heard penned all the others. Altogether these powerful reflections, are present-day renderings of those thoughts and feelings which have been rising in men since they began to reach out to Him who is beyond the senses. Prayers and Meditations equips the contemporary spiritual aspirant with a wellspring of inspirational devotions, ever invoking, the desire to remember constantly the all-pervading, transcendent Presence of God.
Gerald Heard was a well-known British polymath in the second quarter of the 20th century. He began his career as science commentator for the BBC, and H. G. Wells was widely quoted as saying that he was the only one he bothered to listen to on the wireless. From there he went on to write the most successful detective story of the day, A Taste for Honey, which sold over half a million copies, an astronomical number in those days. Thirty more books followed including Pain, Sex and Time, The Ascent of Humanity, and The Social Substance of Religion.
ALDOUS HUXLEY (18941963) was an English writer who spent the latter part of his life in the United States. Though best known for Brave New World, he also wrote countless works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and essays. A humanist, pacifist and satirist, he wrote novels and other works that functioned as critiques of social norms and ideals. Aldous Huxley is often considered a leader of modern thought and one of the most important literary and philosophical voices of the 20th century.
