SKU: INR-9781631353925 Categories: , , Tags: , , ,


Spectacular, all-encompassing, life-changing! These power-packed poems bleed one’s heart of negativity and inject the positive. They awaken your senses, excite your mind and expand awareness of yourself with new perceptions of your environment and the wider world. Steeped in logical thought, it is philosophy for the ages. Boundless in scope, limitless in reach, purpose and opportunity are given a case for revival and renewal based on moral principles, guided by the inner self. Showing us how nature uses its relationship with the planet, the built-in checks and balances which we take for granted, is a masterstroke. Given the breathtaking appeal of love letters, these poems make the heart sing and bring hope to a world that’s not yet at peace. I was inspired to write these poems by a need for answers to questions I was asking myself. I did a lot of research, physically and mentally, looking for clues to help me understand what is the purpose of this life: Why do we live the way we do and make choices the way we do? As I understand it, our system of life is only one of billions where every wish is granted and every need is met. No life is wasted and each one is a learning experience to teach us that We Are Our Highest Priority! We are all here to support each other in whatever adventure we’ve undertaken. The brave ones are those with “Special Needs.” This poetic collection of stories, Our Highest Priority: Embrace Courage, Abandon Fear, is brilliantly written and offers a foundation of thought that’s innovative and original. Stunningly illuminating and timeless, they capture the essence of daily life, its complication and simplicity, and give it vitality with “The world functions on a vision of hope.” This idea suggests there are no dead ends; only perseverance will produce results. It inspires courage, builds confidence, and quickens one’s desire for action in a world where dreams do succeed. Daring and mesmerizing, these bold ideas deeply explore the quality of relationships, e.g., “Trust is essential to fuel persuasion”; or “A relationship based on jealousy cannot survive.” Factors that influence our world view and forces that impact our philosophy of life are all given scrutiny. We are encouraged to be proud of ourselves and our own accomplishments because we contribute to the greater cause. Using our life skills, we are shown roots of a problem and the approach to solve it. Included are fascinating descriptions of how discipline and competition, faith, and optimism function in our world, e.g., “Discipline must be encouraged for competition to flourish”; and “Faith is reflected in our confidence, our inner sense of security.” These are attitude changers intended to energize our self-image and motivate us to let our imagination and our vision soar.
