About this ebook

Meridian is John Casey's second Raw Thoughts title. In much the same way as its prequel, Meridian was artfully crafted with compelling and visceral snapshots of the heart, mind, and soul in accordance with an underlying philosophy that suggests positive change is possible if certain steps are taken. Each poem within is symbiotically paired with a photograph (a 'raw thought'). By degrees, the book charts a path from darkness and confusion to a place of enlightenment. If and as they relate to each step along that path, the reader can attempt to analyze, understand, and revise not just their thoughts, but the way that they think. Knowledge gained from the resultant awakening can free the mind to interpret the world more accurately.

Meridian addresses analysis and improvement of thought in a manner that is less emotive and more refined than in Raw Thoughts. It offers an approach that is cognitive to an extent that most people will not instinctively endeavor to pursue. This is a distinction that lends itself naturally to a next-level pursuit of clarity and personal growth.
