Editorial Reviews


"This (writing) really upset me, but it provokes me to really examine my life." -- Richard Wells - Owner of Real Color in Santa Cruz

From the Author

I have attempted to grant all possible assistance to the reader by using different forms from mild to wild as a catalyst. I also hold in contempt those who forsake the use of these forms because the matter is not about proper form. The question is of truth that can be confirmed in ones own Being. This being the substance, of what concern is the form?

For some this reading may require unflinching courage to avoid reading vicariously - because the one exposing themselves to this work "is" the context in which this book was written. In other words, it was written for "you" personally and is not about others. Therefore the following is a short piece that I hope will provoke and perhaps tickle your inherent receptivity:

Receptivity does not mean that you agree or disagree. The inquiry of your own self is far deeper than agreeing or disagreeing, Agreeing or disagreeing often bypasses the question of truth to defend preconceived notions. And, often the question of what one inherently knows is perhaps never asked. The receptivity I speak of creates the possibility for you to ask the question with your entire Being, "Is this true?" This question has three possible answers: Yes, no, or I don't know. This can clear the way for the deepest question to ask yourself, "Who am I?"

To read a book on the most intimate subject of ones own nature may cause one to begin with emotion, perhaps excited anticipation or apprehension and fear, perhaps any number of feelings that may cause an interpretation of what is said rather than seeing the essence of what is said. But let us both author and reader understand that this may be the only way we will ever encounter each other. However limited this fact may be, I understand what I am saying. I don't know how you will interpret it. I shine a light on human events and in doing so call awareness to itself or you could say to the source.

As a writer, personal tragedies sparked my interest in philosophy as a teen, leading me to explore the meaning of existence. Altered states of consciousness, through meditation and sexuality, opened up a new dimension of awareness. My writing draws from personal experiences to encourage readers to approach beliefs with skepticism. Magical thinking and half-truths often undermine spiritual practices, leading to dire consequences. Honesty is crucial in understanding the world, and interpretation is just as vital as experience. My hope is to inspire curiosity and self-discovery in readers.
