Unfortunately, few people are able to experience it due to the difficulties and personal issues in our lives. This book is about recognizing these problems and providing solutions so that life can be experienced in its natural and most beautiful state. Music is beauty. I have been a professional musician most of my life; therefore I have a great well of information to draw from. This book will open your mind to the unlimited sources of beauty available by taking you through an intensive journey into beliefs, the inner world of perception, the nature of reality and the nature of change, all done through unique methods and philosophies. I have had two major open-heart surgeries, the most recent one while writing this book. My aorta ruptured because of a weakness caused by the first surgery and almost killed me requiring extensive recovery time. Having gone through this, I decided to let the words in this book help me by approaching it as if it were written by someone else. With the help this book has given me, I feel confident that it can help others as well. I have chosen subjects that I believe are the most important to gaining personal satisfaction, finding peace and placing readers in a state of mind that enables them to experience beauty in life. I hope you will enjoy it!
