A Gift of the Heart – Responding
A blessed life is best shared for consideration and reflection, inspiring others to be and do beyond the constraints of fear or finance. I feel it is more important to share and, in some way, pay it forward and offer reflections that might be similar and/or provide insights into life as we know it. I came from a small town, grew up with small town ethics, morals and values.
I have them still, yet play in a much larger global village now. I believe in the innate ability we have of embracing a new living awareness. I’ve learned that there is a natural progression toward harmony among people and planet, too. In spite of our challenges, we’ll get through them together.
I was doubly blessed with adoption by wonderful parents who were engaged in our community and then reconnecting with my birth parents in magical ways with no love lost at all. It’s a hero’s journey of sorts, a series that is multidimensional in itself, complete with explorations to match. Trials and tribulations abound as this one seeks to find soulace in life and love.
The best things in life are shared, in this case over 1,000 pages of my best writing across the three-book series: Zendor the Barbarian. I enjoyed writing them, sometimes labored over them, experienced many cathartic moments and finally published them. Below you will find a few books, from the incredible journey of my own life to practical business skills to considerations for our future planetary civilization. Please continue the theme and do something in your own life to pay it forward now.
Enjoy these, too!

This book is a fun ride through metaphysical-land for those who are new to it. Entertaining, enthralling, you can’t stop reading it once you get started.

For too long we have ignored the inner voices that speak to us and Zen’s journey may speak to you as well.

You won’t again see yourself or the world in the same way
It isn’t often you get to review a book by someone you already know, respect – and this respect is based on the results that Zen delivers in the real, concrete world where most of us live. Zen is a perfect combination of can-do problem solver and off-your-radar philosopher in one amazing human being.
His book speaks of this world and other worlds with data, experience, insights, and questions, many of which the reader is challenged to answer – or at least ponder for extended periods.
Zen does not dispense recipes and firm answers to life’s questions. Instead, he invites you to use all six senses and to think. I have not been lucky enough to attend one of his workshops or retreats, yet I am dead sure I would leave with fewer limits to the possibilities in my life.
Zen will take you there. Enjoy.

This is an autobiographical story of a spiritual adventurer who is led on a journey of intense life-altering experiences that serve to further the advancement of what appears to be an already advanced soul. Although sometimes the tale seems a little disjointed and one might wonder where this is going, in the end it becomes clear that Bruce/Zendor has been directly and indirectly influenced by a mind/soul connection that is unflagging in its ability to magnetize life lessons that, while certainly not the most comfortable, have brought him a long way down the path toward unification with Source. For myself, I could only wish that such mystical realms were more apparent in my life, but reading about it in another is a good second.

Review of Stubbing My T.O.E. on Purpose…
“Zen Benefiel, literally, takes us with him on his journey from drums to conundrums. His mind is facile as he weaves a narrative ranging from deep within the esoteric/ufology subculture to lessons of marriage, family, and business life. He draws upon archetypal psychology with a particular appreciation for the creative godhead archetype. If you read this book with an open heart, you may find yourself discovering new vistas of your own.” ~Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD Host, New Thinking Allowed YouTube channel
Stubbing My T.O.E on Purpose’ by Bruce ‘Zen’ Benefiel is a thought-provoking and introspective exploration of consciousness, spirituality, and the nature of reality. This book takes readers on a captivating journey that challenges conventional beliefs and encourages them to question the very fabric of their existence.
Benefiel’s writing style is engaging and accessible, striking a balance between depth and clarity. He seamlessly weaves together personal anecdotes, philosophical musings, and scientific insights to create a comprehensive exploration of the nature of reality and our place within it. While the subject matter can be complex, Benefiel does an excellent job of presenting his ideas in a relatable and understandable manner.
