About the Book

398 Pages / 2.79 MB

This book is a calender of very short meditative explorations; one per day for an entire year. Some are statements, some are questions, and others just simple movements of words. Each one can be used as a jumping off point for your own daily meditations.

None of the phrases in the book are definitive. In other words, they did not arise from a center of belief, or the conclusions of self. And although some of the ‘days’ in the book will seem definitive, conclusive, or opinionated, do not accept them as true or false.

The words are not important anyway. What is important is to see how you rise to fight, rise to agree, or rise to flee.

Download For Free

This book is free and is not restricted, but it must always remain free. Other than that, you may do whatever you want with it. Send it to as many people as you see fit. Quote it. Give it away on your own site. It really doesn’t matter to me.

If you find you have enjoyed the book, you could throw a link my way, but you don’t have to do that, either.

      Thank you very much, Vicki.

      And thank you again, because after you posted your comment, I realized my new site design no longer has a link to the book on the homepage! I’ll remedy that very soon…

      Thanks again, and I am happy you like the book.

    Thank you again this day. I like that you are so genouros not one person in the Internet I remember who wants nothing for his or her work and i see your pleasure in giving it away, this makes the whole thing very precious. And I know that the energies around will feed you because you feed us and so we feed us alltogether.
    Take my Thanks again.

      Thank you very much, iamasimpelman.

      When I was writing the book someone asked me, “How much will you sell it for?” It just struck me as so very odd.

      No one should have to pay money for an electronic book like this. I was happy to make it, and very happy to give it away.

      I hope you enjoy the book!
