Peg Conley has been an artist all her life but, like many of us, took a long detour into the working world where she was a "corporate sales queen" in Seattle with a lot of success and a happy, busy family. Art became the thing she did on vacations, weekends and when she could carve time out of her busy life. Something gnawed at her, a nagging feeling that life might hold something else for her in the midst of it all. Then came the big "aha" moment—Peg heard a still small voice inside: "Imagine the life you want to live, then live it. It's that simple!" Her family encouraged Peg to pursue her passion. Despite a great deal of fear, Peg Conley did the thing she thought she could not do and dropped her big job, big house and big life and moved to San Francisco to start a business based on her artisan stationery. From a handful of handpainted cards, calendars and posters, her company Words & Watercolors was born and has been inspiring people, winning awards and raking in the sales ever since. Peg's intention with her work is to inspire and her art and writing all speak to life's great truths and those aha moments for which we all need reminders. What do you “imagine” your Ideal Life to be? It may take some time for it to unveil itself. You will need to have an idea of what it is you are looking to create. Spend some time in contemplation. For some that means a quiet meditation where images might come to you. For others, you might write about something you’ve always had a longing to create, or a dream that seemed far away and not attainable yet it doesn’t go away. The dream nudges at you, asking you to pay attention. Where words work for some people, pictures work for others. You may want to create a vision board. Gather your old magazines and begin ripping out the pictures that appeal to you, or draw your own images. Your Ideal Life will come alive via the images that resonate with you. Don’t hesitate to pick up a pen, pencil or crayons even and fill the blank pages with doodles of any kind. Do you still think of becoming a nurse? Don’t be disheartened, go online and research classes you can take at your local college to start the process. As someone once said, if you don’t start now, 5 years from now you still will be where you are but if you begin with baby steps, in 5 years you could be in a completely different place! So ask yourself the question: “What does the life I long to live look like?” Imagine it! Draw it, write it, collage it and just plain dream it. Believe you can have it and then go about creating it as you take daily steps towards becoming an enhanced version of yourself! All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.

 Perhaps the most important section in Dan Millman's best-selling book, The Life You Were Born to Live was titled Laws that Change Lives.  These laws, as described, were key to overcoming the specific hurdles on a given individual's life path.  Different laws played critical roles for different paths.

But the author considers these laws so central to all our lives that they needed a book of their own, and a more universal treatment, since anyone could benefit from applying any of these laws.  As he writes: "Within the mystery of our existence, the universe operates according to spiritual laws as real as the law of gravity and as constant as the turning of the heavens. Aligning our lives to these laws can transform our relationships, careers, finances, and health. Simply put, they make life work better."

The Laws of Spirit, Dan Millman's "little book of big wisdom," offers a teaching tale in which he encounters an ageless woman sage while on a mountain hike. There, in the wilderness, she takes Dan and his readers through experiences and tests in the natural world that demonstrate the power of spiritual laws of balance, choice, process, presence, compassion, faith, action, patience, , surrender, and unity.

As the sage relates, "These laws belong to all of us. They rest within our hearts and at the heart of every religion and spiritual tradition." As you make your own journey through the pages of this book, you will find universal solutions to the varied challenges of our lives, leading to perspective and wisdom about the meaning and purpose of our lives here, and our connection with all of creation 

It begins with a single step: Open the first page of a book you will refer to again and again for inspiration and guidance on life’s journey, up the mountain path.

What would it be like to transcend the limitations on planet earth? How intriguing would it be to experience life through a higher mind, with significantly broader experiences than you ever imagined? Journey Beyond Linear Time reveals that heaven is neither up there nor out there somewhere. Instead, it is right here where we stand. The author has walked on this earth in pure spirit multiple times in this incarnation. He has seen inside others and recognized their scars, their pain, and the troubles they bore. He has had divine experiences right here on earth, which most would consider out of this world. And he has been inside the massive and expansive energy field we refer to as God. He states that it exists, it is substantive, and it is where we come from. The author of Journey Beyond Linear Time, Raphael Jara, was born spiritually awake and is now sharing some of his own extraordinary experiences here on earth. He takes the reader on a journey through our earthly indulgence in simple mind and opens the pathway for us to realize who we truly are. And that realization will bring us to the truth of our existence and the reason for which we take this journey to the denseness of planet earth. He states, A profound truth is that we are multidimensional beings having a human experience with the ability to transform ourselves from our limiting human capacity into our divine essence, with capabilities beyond the imagined. And with this higher level of consciousness, we can then live our lives through truth, and not through the unconsciousness that appeases the simple mind. Our capability far transcends our human limitations, for we are the expressions of the universal self.

The Lost Art of Being is a little book about doing less and being more. Capturing the wisdom of ancient sages on how to be happy and roll with the Universe, it applies these sacred secrets to our busy modern lives. Offering direct teachings illustrated by remarkable personal insights from the author’s own experiences, it encourages the reader to discover the immense power of slowing down, letting heart rule head, and remembering how just to be. It is based on the premise that as human beings, it is only when we look after both aspects of ourselves - human and being - that we can fully relax into our lives. It teaches us how to over-ride the mind to get in touch with our being and receive greater guidance from the universe. The author Jacqui Macdonald explains: “Most of us are ruled by a voice in our head that tells us we need to strive for bigger, better and more. When we believe this story, we lose sight of the fact that we already have a magical connection to the Universe that will provide everything we need for happiness and success. We become all human, no being. This is the source of all stress.” The book encourages us to release the need for incessant - choosing instead to pause long enough to realise that our thoughts are not real. This allows us to tune into Universal guidance and let our lives unfold far beyond the barriers of convention. The Lost Art of Being combines a short mythical story, inspirational teachings, a selection of Q&A’s and a practical lifestyle guide. It is funny, full of wisdom and easy to read - a powerful antidote to 21st century stress, recalling ancient secrets about how to ease into the flow of life, relinquishing the need for all effort.
As a writer, I know that words are important at the beginning of any creative process; they become the tools used to convey ideas—to paint a picture that holds relevance and meaning to the reader and hopefully finds a home in their heart. Between the covers of this book are many words which are intended to offer you encouragement, irrespective of who you are or where you are on this sometimes challenging, sometimes confusing, sometimes exhilarating journey we call life.
My personal vision is “Guiding People to Purpose.” It is my belief that we each have a purpose for being on this planet or we would not be here; we all matter. In this book you will find a compilation of articles I have been privileged to write for Science of Mind magazine, as well as a number of essays I have written as blogs over the years. As you read these articles and essays, may you be open to receiving the love and respect intended in each one. The content of this book is innately spiritual, and meant to be so, because that is what you are—a spiritual being having a human experience. When it is time for you to return to the place of your spiritual origin you will be asked two questions: Did you learn to love well . . . and, is the planet a better place today than it was the day you arrived because you were there? As you read this book, may the answer to these questions become a litmus test for the balance of your life that encourages you to live an exquisite, fulfilling life. Know that who you are and—equally important—what you do with who you are, matter.
