The higher a seagull flies, the further it can see; the higher a person stands, the broader is his view. The more we understand our inner nature, the fewer obstacles we have. Within our lifetime, more or less we will want to explore riddles like:"Where do I come from?", "Why do I come here?" and "Where will I eventually go?" These questions significantly affect us each time we have to make a critical decision in life.
To satisfy such a longing, some people devote themselves in their career in search for the value of their existence. Some resort to love relationship for satisfaction; others seek self-affirmation through drilling into books or indulging in charitable activities. Indeed, these can give us some temporary consolation, but not the complete and ultimate contentment. These substitutes may be able to give us a taste resembling the real thing, but the taste is only skin deep, and could never match the preciousness of the real thing.
This book provides those thirsty souls who cannot be satisfied by material means in life, and thus crave to seek spiritual abundance, with the personal finding and experience of the author in her own quest. In her conversation with other people, the author gives those lonely pathfinders who are lost in the maze and not knowing where to make the next turn", a guideline to make the right decision, and not to be puzzled by the countless landmarks on the path.
A spiritual master is not here to eliminate our sufferings, but to give us the right information at the right time, so that we can embark on the path that we choose, overcome obstacles thereon, grow healthily while our soul is irrigated and nourished, and eventually overcome our inner barrier to become a perfectly evolved entity. Perfection is the original nature of all humans. We fail to recognize ourselves clearly only because we are obscured by outer influences. Therefore, we falter and retreat in the prospect of hardship. Only when we have shattered these shackles can we find real freedom and liberation.
This book is the way that takes us back to our Home of freedom.
