This book is a guide for living a well-lived life. Each person can find relevant information that can be quickly added to daily life.
The book is the first in a series that presents wisdom essays about living a connected life: connection to other people, connection to one’s environment, connection to environmental conditions, connection to other creatures, connection to oneself, and connection to spiritual presence. These connections are the key to good health.
The information presented requires thoughtful reflection and openness to wonder. From the essay titled "The Journey":
"Choosing one’s way in life is a requisite of a life well lived. Allowing life to lead the way is a life lived less well. Passivity in life is a choice or a forced path depending on one’s circumstances. To presume that every person has a choice is inaccurate; some people live in societies that even if they are “open” do not always enable its members to actually choose. Societal pressures and structure can close people in. Nonetheless, the ability to choose is still available, albeit in a narrower and tighter framework."
I was born and raised on Galveston, which made me a BOI (born on the Island). Being a BOI is important in Galveston, making you feel like you're part-owner of everything there. Not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, I did what most good Texans did in the late 70's, I went to the University of Texas at Austin, joined a sorority, cheered for the Longhorns, and majored in Political Science because I enjoyed my government class in high school and didn't know what else to study. Fast forward to 2013. I still value my small city sense of wanting to be a part of community and I sort of still root for the Longhorns. I now live on a small hilltop in the Galilee of northern Israel. I found my passions after college--nutrition and nutritious cooking and helping people feel balanced. My home is vegetarian and I've been experimenting with raw desserts. I use a technique called Libra Method that was developed by my teacher in Israel to help people with back and joint pain. My real passion is Energy Guidance Complete, which is whole body balancing through guidance from Spiritual Presence. I also use Energy Guidance to write the books in my new series. I hope the readers will be as amazed by the information in these books as I am!
