For all our technological wizardry, we have failed to arrive at a critical understanding of what it means to be human. Trees grow true to their seeds, dogs know how to be dogs, kittens naturally mature into cats. In our case, we just don’t seem to have ‘connected the dots’. In spite of age-old advice from Those Who Know – the saints and seers of every religion – we are further than ever from reaching our potential for the kind of greatness, creativity and beauty of being that every true sage unanimously advocates.
In short, we are more ‘off-song’ than we have ever been. This has resulted in a seriously ‘off-key’ planet. Our Mother Earth may even stop performing!
Perhaps, being the complex beings we are, we don’t know practically speaking, where to begin. So we place the whole business in the too hard basket, or deny our destinies, leave questions about growth, meaning and a lasting happiness unanswered. By default, we fall back into the customs and rules of our surrounding cultures, assuring ourselves that this is all there is anyway. The ‘songs we sing’ are reflections of our cultural shortcomings, often disappointing and discordant. Turning our backs on our amazing potentials, we fall prey to social ills and spills. Why do you think our hospitals and our prisons are full to overflowing, our suicide statistics so high?
The point is: it’s not all that hard to find and express your true ‘song. It’s far more divine than difficult in fact.
The author’s story, told with candour and humour, is rich with helpful hints on practical ways for you to find your way through to a life of happiness and harmony.
