I'm pleased to report that my new book "Not Really Coincidence: Tracing Your Purposeful Life" is finished and is working its way through CreateSpace. It will be available on Amazon in print and a Kindle Edition if about one month.
Purposeful lives are blueprints we have made before we come into this world. Destiny Points are free will choices we make after entry that either facilitate the blueprint we have desiged or hinder them. If we make choices that facilitate our blueprint we are given help from above. If we make choices that hinder our blueprint we are often blocked. If people do not follow the Purposeful life they have planned they often experience a sense of restlessness and discontent that meaning and purpose are lacking. When one is leading the life they have chosen there is a sense of passion and fulfillment.
In "Not Really Coincidence" I have located the Destiny Points in my own life, my late partner's life, and five people who without doubt have led very purposeful lives including Barack Obama, Margaret Thatcher, British philosopher Bertrand Russell, Walt Disney and the artist Emily Carr. I have also given directions to finding your own Purposeful Life.
Now that "Not Really Coincidence is finished I am working on a book that will likely be called "The Great Canadian Betrayal." This book is about Canadian Treaties 6, 7, and 8 in which First Nation's people surrendered title to most of Canada from Ontario to the Rocky Mountains in return for items such as freedom to choose reserve land, farming implements, education for their children and aid during famine and epidemics. The First Nations people honored their commitments but the Canadian Government of Sir John A. MacDonald and later governments did not.
The history is depressing as is the knowledge that most Canadians are not aware of the history and have lingering negative sterotypes in their minds of First Nations People from Cowboy and Indian movies from Hollywood. Actually the Cree and Blackfoot Chiefs that negotiated the above treaties after the were very dignified and negotited very hard to save their people from starvation once the buffalo herds had been exterminated and the American gold miners were running rampant amongst them.
Personally I am multi-tasking amongst great distruption as a drain backed up from the house heat pump and flooded all the carpets. I now have to pack up all my material goods, move them and all the furniture while a new floor is put in. I can't wait to return to Hawaii in July for the Hawaii Association of Recording Artists Haku Awards where my audiobook has been nominated for the Spoken Word Category. I'll keep you posted.
