Introduction

You probably found this book in the "Non-Fiction" section but I want to assure you that it is definitely fiction. It is fiction because the stories are my recollections of some of my experiences and I have long since learned that my memory is far from accurate. At least, when others tell of the same incident, their story is usually different from mine. Rayner Heppenstall said, "We are all largely fictitious even to ourselves." I can certainly relate to this.

Most of all I want you to feel free to react honestly and to choose for yourself what works and what doesn't. You see, by the time you read this I will probably have changed my mind on a number of theories or truths because each new experience leads me to new levels of understanding. If you asked me today to name my favourite fruit in the whole world I would not be able to do it because I have not experienced every fruit in the world. And so my truths are only based on my experiences to date.

Recently, Denis, the new love in my life, phoned me from Thailand. When I asked him the time, he said it was noon on Thursday. He asked me the time and I said it was 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Was one of us lying? Is there some way to find a universal truth about the time? No. Each of us had the truth based on our situation and how we were experiencing the world at that time. I saw it expressed this way. "The truth is what you believe, not what someone tells you is true."

Throughout the book I will refer to many people only by their first names to give them some measure of privacy. They will recognize themselves but I don't want to be responsible for making their lives public. Some immediate family members will, of course, be recognizable and I have used full names for people who are already public figures.

The fact that you are reading this book leads me to believe that you are also on a journey to find your personal freedom. When I read a book, it is not to remember what I read but instead to be reminded of what I already knew and forgot. I hope this book triggers some memories for you. My life and writing this book have been a healing journey. I offer the book to you in the hope that it will provide you with healing, inspiration and entertainment.

 

We live in a nation that proclaims loud and long
Its belief in the personal rights and freedoms of the individual.
Yet there is overwhelming pressure to conform.

Our education system proclaims loud and long
That it believes in individual learning needs.
Yet the children are pressured to learn what they're told
Whether it's meaningful to them or not.

So personal freedom becomes a journey;
Overcoming all the pressure to conform,
Learning to trust in our own judgement
And believing that our own dreams and desires have validity.

But embarking on the journey to personal freedom
Is about learning to love ourselves.
And when we truly love ourselves
We will know no fear or hate or jealousy.
And then doing what we want when we want
Will bring peace and harmony to all humanity.
