'These heart-warming stories bring insight into life’s challenges.
They tell the story of my evolution. Life is teaching me to slow down and look beyond the illusions that we have been taught in order to recognize the deeper truths that have been there all along, waiting for each of us to pause long enough to witness the essential beauty that dwells within.
It has been said that it is not the destination, but the way we make the journey that is important. May these words unite us in making the journey in peace."

The spiritual teacher, Eckhart Tolle once said, “There is no other, there is only me.” Through the words I write, I hope you and I are joined, that we come to love and cherish each other in a deeper and more meaningful way. As one, let us recreate our world in a new and higher form
