I have just finished reading your insightful book. A beautifully illustrated personal and mystical journey of your own wounded inner child to your own sleeping giant … to your one-ness with the unfathomable, eternally creative cosmos which is the ultimate ground of all being. Weaving together childhood writings, fairy tale, exquisite poetry, and deep mystical insight, it’s a uniquely constructed tale of the hero/heroine’s journey from lost to found to lost again in never-ending creative patterns.
It is also one of the oldest stories ever told. One finds it, for example, in ancient Egypt in “The revelation of the Soul of Shu,” inscribed on the sarcophagus of Gwa, a physician-sage of the 12th Dynasty, (circa 1650-1850 B.C):
I am SHU
The dweller within the one million beings.
I gain awareness from them.
I disseminate to his own generations the word
Of the one that creates himself from himself.
The generations will identify me.
With the great mystical ship steered
By him who liberates his being from his own Self.
For I have seen the abyss becoming I.
He knew not the place in which I became
Nor did he see me becoming his own face.
I forge my Soul in creating the concept of my Soul
Within the dwellers of the lake of fire.
My becoming is the force of the entire Creation
Which flows forth from the great lord
