“Being & Vibration: Entering The New World” is the latest book by Southern Ute author, Joseph Rael Sr., which tells the wondrous tales of spirituality and personal heritage. Rael held a special signing at Maria’s Bookshop on Thursday, Nov. 19 in Durango, where he shared the thematic elements of his story.

“Teach your kids and grandkids about culture, your history – in this life, none of us are an accident because we are destined to be here,” he said to a roomful of fascinated readers. “That’s how the universe functions. We as humans must reach the same level of consciousness.”

“What is your personal view on existence?” a guest asked, to which Rael answered – “We’re not moving to our highest potential. Be aware of your surroundings and you will find all the potential you can ever have. At the end of the day, it’s there for you to take. We exist as we are because of the way we see ourselves in the moment.”

Rael was met with applause and signed copies for all attending guests. He left them with a statement about having a “ceremony” throughout the days.

“Everyday you wake up, take note about your life, because that’s apart of your ceremony. Everything we do is a ceremony because we all live in the moment.”
