There once was a time in the history of mankind when knowledge was passed on by pictures or by oral tradition. There have been periods when the common man was kept away from truth and enlightenment by cultural elite, ruthless dictators, elevated clergy and even mystics. People of the past were often kept in ignorance or were assumed to not be able to understand the very things that might set them free.
We now live in an age where people have almost instant access to virtual libraries and treasuries of the accumulated wisdom and history of man. Often times in their maddening rush to learn, uncover or sort through the avalanche of information, they demand the "condensed" version. This is not a good time in history to be an encyclopedia salesman. Our parents never dreamed of a day when handwritten letters would give way to emails, which are already being replaced by text messages, tweets and twitters!
With this in mind the author has created a "less is more" masterpiece. Today's seeker is not an idiot. If she or he finds a topic of intrigue or connection, they will use whatever means at hand to search it out and build upon it. However, there is one facet in life everyone must and will face. It will change your life!
Authors' note: It has been my intent to make this book an example of simplistic persuasion. I have tried to resist the temptation to compete on some levels with a world of "bells and whistles." You will notice several illustrations in this book. They were included and left in their black and white format---simplistic and yet making a statement. Many people are visual learners....a picture can evoke an emotion or conclusion as much or more than words. Some of my anecdotes have a Western cultural flavor that could be lost to your frame of reference. It is my belief that this book may be viewed by those who cannot fully understand the verbiage and maybe even by some who cannot read; that the message of this book may be conveyed and shared by some who might even have to hide its meaning from those who would censure it. Those who would desire "ultimate power" can often be the ones most afraid of "the power of I will."
"What's up with the Geese?" The word migrate can mean to move, either permanently or seasonally, from one place to another. You and I are on a migration. Whether of our own will or the call of nature, we are being called "homeward." May this book be the key in the freedom to follow that call!
