Described as an interior journey the poet undertakes the task of uniting all forms of reality, thought, experience, and non-reality with “The Theory of Love”. Promised to be a meditation which the poet calls “The Meditation of Pure Love” the poet begins his interior journey grounded in the faith in Blessed Mother Mary. He states that five World Religions will be united by “The Theory of Love” as expressed through the Blessed Mother’s Life beginning with a union between Christianity and Buddhism.
