To summarize my intention for this book:
I wish to take readers by the hand, while I follow this shamanic path that I have discovered during my pilgrimage, and share how SIMPLE and FREE life can be — all the while getting closer to what it’s like to be authentically me.
The proof of the pudding lies in the eating, and this is where I intend to make a difference.
I have six Core Beliefs that forge the groundworks of everything I think and do, and it is through my thoughts and actions that I bring these spiritual sounding ideas down to earth. Spiritual ideas are abundant — perhaps even more than ever before — and yet I remember well that I used to look for practical, concrete examples of HOW to bring these ideas to fruition in my daily life. Hence this book.
Spirit-ual, to me, stands for being in connection with Spirit. I believe we cannot NOT be in connection with Spirit — or Source or The All That Is — because we are made from it (see also my elaboration in My Vision). But that doesn’t mean we all FEEL that connection, let alone that we feel it all the time. What my moment of enlightenment really made clear was HOW I can keep this connection going. By staying true to my Self; by doing what FEELS GOOD. For me. This is why:
The daily practice of Spirit-uality — by staying true to one Self, for better and for worse — is what it’s all about!
And I like to stipulate: this book is, in contrary to most spiritually-guidelined-books, NOT being written at the point where the ‘worse’ part is over and I have reached the top of that mountain challenge. This book is being written IN THE MIDST of the ‘worse’ part, with me sitting at the bottom of my empty treasure chest, writing about the experience.
Also: this is the part where YOU come in.
