While my fifth book, The Collective: Essays on Reality could be deemed a book able to stand on its own, in truth, there are many shared elements that exist between it and the other spiritual/metaphysical volumes.


The Collective: Essays on RealityA collection of two essays, it has been my personal experience that one must first acknowledge what appears to be happening before attempting to reconfigure the responses of their past; hence, The Collective: Essays  on Reality presents material that may elicit uncertainty and confusion for some readers.

Essay One was written to better inform the reader so that he/she can work on actively disengaging from the Matrix.

Essay Two focuses on different ways in which one can more effectively work towards changing themselves.

Seek ye (knowledge) so that ye may find (knowledge), for it is positive energy that nourishes the soul and truth that liberates.

If I may share the following words from the Acknowledgments section.

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

These very words, attributed to Galileo, are profound in their simplicity.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Carl Gustav Jung said it all with this brief statement.

I think we all have a little voice inside us that will guide us. If we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do.

My favorite remembrance of Christopher Reeve was his portrayal of Richard Collier, a playwright who became smitten by a photograph of a young woman at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, in the 1980 romantic fantasy, Somewhere In Time. These particular words of his seem even more pertinent to me now.
