Format: Paperback
The Appleseed Journal is an insightful story that fuses teachings of The Way with the biographical tale of Johnny Appleseed, an American folk hero and pioneer in apple farming. The journal is replete with techniques, exercises, and stories to aid the seeker by using John Chapman's (Johnny Appleseed's) journeys and works as a blueprint for the traveler's own journey. At its very core, and in my opinion of course, reading The Appleseed Journal is in itself an exercise in Remembrance. Reading the journal may escort and direct its reader through different states of consciousness where one may become more aware and more grateful of one's own journey, and the treasures one may already have in his or her own possession. The Appleseed Journal is a potent reminder of who we are, why we are, and what our potentials may be. Dr. Bitkoff has once again produced a wonderful tale that goes beyond the simple telling of a story. I encourage anyone interested in familiarizing themselves a little more with the Sufi perspective, to pick this book up and allow its alchemical properties take them through some of its timeless processes.

Dr Bitkoff provided me with a free copy of his book in exchange for an honest review. I liked it so much that I've purchased a copy. Sufi writing is encoded with spiritual teaching and with radiance that uplifts, inspires, enlightens and nourishes the soul.This book, as with each of Dr Bitkoff's other works, is no exception. Read them and you will change. Very subtly, and almost imperceptibly, and yet in a very real way. I can offer any seeker no other advice than to say - read!

Dr. Bitkoff yet again provides a simple, yet undeniably effective method for connecting the body with the spirit. I've received immediate understanding of the message that Johnny Appleseed "John Chapman" simply worded was conveying. I deeply enjoy the recurring theme in "The Appleseed Journal" of eliminating the amount of things that define yourself and ritualistic practices & materials we think is needed in our life's in order to think/feel completed. And then know a simple & profound truth to find that what matters most, Love for your self and others and all that is around you.This book will help you to be the person who you really want to be, help you to have honesty in your heart and faith in one's true abilities that you've always wanted to know and take your life in the direction that you want it to grow.
Thank you so very much for you ever living words Johnny Appleseed and thank you Dr. Bitkoff for bring these words to light again!

While most may readily recognize the name of Johnny Appleseed, which is widely connected with the propagation and popularity of apples, this same audience is just as unlikely to realize that Appleseed was actually a traveling minister with deep spiritual roots - and that he used apple seeding as one device towards the greater purpose of seeding men's souls.

It's about time that a biography of Appleseed were written to capture this little-known facet of his life; but while The Appleseed Journal is a story of spirituality and enlightenment as much as a chronicle of one man's wanderings and calling, and is recommended for any who wondered about the persona and impact of the man in his 1800s world, it would not have come to exist without a chance discovery by the author.

This spiritual fictionalized story begins with a weathered sack, a blue tin box, and an old manuscript after excavating a failed swimming pool from his back yard, discovered to be written by one John Chapman (popularly known as Johnny Appleseed). The author researched the relationship between Appleseed and spiritual leader Emmanuel Swedenborg, coming to understand their spiritual connections and influences - and these facts are incorporated in a story line based around Appleseed's wanderings.

That this is a major facet in the life of a man who today is primarily known for his apple seedlings is astonishing.

Anyone could have produced a biography of Appleseed's life based on Internet research. The fact that this collection of fictionalized stories are driven by Appleseed's own writings makes it an extraordinary piece that deserves a place in any collection serious about spiritual writings in general or Appleseed's life and philosophy in particular. Its lively passion should attract a wide audience.

There isn't much in the way of Spiritual Enhancement writings that "wow" me. Dr. Bitkoff has proven otherwise in everyone of his works. In the APPLESEED JOURNAL From beginning to end I found this seed of spiritual evolvement fascinating. It's simple yet intriguing, keeping the reader's imagination even after the piece is read. Like an apple once you've eaten it becomes the core and seed. What do you/ we do after we've eaten the meat of the apple?
I found myself asking; "Is this real? Is it true? Did Dr. Bitkoff really find a journal from John Chapman?" Then as if at once I was answered; "does it matter?" The celebration of simplicity and tenacity is what this work meant for me. It doesn't matter where the idea came from for it is obvious it was a gift from "Spirit" to the imagination planted so it might grow into a tree in your heart and stir your own imagination.
This is what a story should do. Isn't it? Food for thought.
