The prophecy of the Mastay foretells the coming of an age of light and harmony, a day that will be illuminated by a new sun. This day will begin with the reunion of the ‘people of the four directions’. The aim of this book is to facilitate the union and explore what could happen afterwards.
The book describes the lives of four characters, each of which represent an element, a direction and a civilisation. The first character represents the people of air, the East, and Eastern civilisation. The second represents the people of water, the North, and Islam. The third belongs to the people of fire, the West, and Western civilisation. Finally there is the fourth character, an indigenous Australian woman who represents the people of earth, the South, and the first nations.
Marc comes from Urus, a community in the Pyrenees, the land of the Cathars. The name Urus is of Indo-European origin and it means ‘a place where the water springs’. He went abroad in 1995 after graduating from the University of Barcelona, and since then has lived and worked a little in every continent. Through living in other countries, Marc has associated with many different cultures and ways of thinking, especially with those he calls ‘earth people’. From them, he has learned a different way of reasoning, and discovered that the future of the planet depends on our ability to learn what such cultures have to offer.
As an author, he writes about spirituality and new tendencies, developing and intermingling genres, making use of both narrative and essay writing. He tries to understand and experience things for himself in order to build bridges, both to unify different cultures and spiritual traditions across the globe.
