"My book," Krafel writes, "is a series of stories about times when I 'woke up' and heard a story the world was telling me that increased my awareness of what I was actually doing within this universe." It's about how we are always making a difference whose consequences can be negative or positive. This is a book to re-read and act upon. It's a practical person's approach to the "fresh, present wakefulness" that is the purpose of dzogchen Buddhist practice.

Every time I picked up this book, I had an "a-ha" moment. Every story contains a different way which life is represented. There is so much to absorb from each chapter, I would often set the book aside, take a walk, and immerse myself in my surroundings; and receive a moment of clarity.
Hugely powerful; tools for seeing and thinking about the universe in new ways, simply told, but profound. I read twice.
