All enlightened beings, most founders of religions and many renowned scientists knew and understood the six principles of enlightenment. These universal truths have been written about, taught and discussed for thousands of years yet remain shrouded in mystery and misinterpretation. This book seeks to remove that shroud.

The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life is an intellectual and spiritual work that explains the six significant universal truths woven throughout science, religion and philosophy. These principles draw upon thousands of years of wisdom and are presented in a concise, accessible format. Each principle is defined and has an explanation on its application to life; they are further supported by quotes of wisdom from enlightened beings, philosophers, artists and scientists like Buddha, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Stephen Hawking and Jesus. Understanding the six principles then unlocks the meaning of life which is explained in the final chapter.

Russell Anthony Gibbs is a philosopher and spiritual seeker on a quest for enlightenment. He grew up in a huge family, one of eleven children, on a farm in Iowa. He was a rebellious child and in sixth grade he was kicked out of Catholic elementary school. At an early age, he began questioning the teachings of Catholicism and struggled to understand his relationship with God and the meaning of life.

Ironically, Russell worked professionally in the lighting industry for more than twenty years while seeking spiritual enlightenment. He was profoundly influenced by the information from two channeled entities, Seth and Abraham. His research into Baha’ism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sufism and Taoism has also has greatly influenced his spiritual and philosophical perspective. In addition to religion and philosophy, he has incorporated quantum mechanics, physics and psychology and studied the works of Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Stephen Hawking.

He conceptualized this book, The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life, about twenty years ago, in his thirties: although he intellectually understood its principles at that time, he could not comprehend them spiritually and emotionally. Every day he contemplated these principles longing to feel them. It was his intense desire for enlightenment that propelled him and slowly he began to see. These principles gestated and developed for twenty years until he matured emotionally and spiritually to truly know and experience what they mean and now share them with the world. One of Russell’s favorite quotes that sum up the rational for his twenty-year-long quest is from Albert Einstein:

“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

Pillars of My Philosophy

I believe in the Six Principles of Enlightenment.

Each of us is personally responsibility for everything in our lives.

Everything that happens to or we draw to ourselves, is a sign from ourselves to ourselves.

We are simultaneously both part of God/the Universe and all of God/the Universe.

Happiness or suffering are merely spiritual choices.

All answers can be found from within.

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life will be the first in a series of eight books. Each of the six principles will be expanded into its own book and the final book will be an expansion on the meaning and purpose of life. All of these books will provide positive and empowering messages for readers, guiding them on the pathway to enlightenment.

I am a philosopher and spiritual seeker on a quest for enlightenment. My research into Bahaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sufism and Taoism has greatly influenced my spiritual and philosophical perspective. I was also profoundly influenced by the information from two channeled entities, Seth and Abraham. In addition to religion and philosophy, I have incorporated quantum mechanics, physics and psychology and studied the works of Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Stephen Hawking.

My communication style is concise, intense and deep. I would rather express wisdom in brief, powerful quotes and concise paragraphs than complicated, long-winded explanations. Espresso Wisdom is short, strong, rich insight. Like espresso coffee, it is an intense jolt of enlightenment. Enlightenment is an awakening, and Espresso Wisdom is meant to help jumpstart you on your journey.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My intense desire for answers, understanding and enlightenment compelled me to seek out wisdom and write this book. I first and foremost compiled this information for myself, and now am ready to share it with the world.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Wisdom comes to me in flashes and I’m constantly writing little notes everywhere that will later be processed into sections of a work. My work space looks like an explosion of little yellow post-it notes and index cards.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
Einstein, Buddha, Rumi and Jesus are my greatest influences and their quotes truly speak to me. I also found the channeled material of the entities Seth and Abraham to be amazing rich and useful. These six teachers each have slightly different ways to explain complex concepts. When you hear the different explanations and compare, you can get a much better understanding of their messages.

What are you working on now?
I’m now working on The Principle of Oneness due out early 2017. This book will explain the profound connectedness of everything and everyone in the Universe.
