Visionary Perspectives on the Good Life
This book was written out of a sense of hopefulness. A sense that there is an answer to the perennial question asked by members of our species; Is there a state of mind which I can attain which will make my life wonderful, a joy to live? This certainly, is to me, the ultimate question for man. Questions of career, social relations, travel, & education must be of only secondary importance (at least in the grander scale of things). Most of us have known at least moments of true happiness but they are for most too few & too fleeting. The quest in these pages is for that elusive state of mind, which has the power to produce changes in the physical environment mirroring the individual's dream life. This dream life is referred to here as the Golden Oneida, (One I D A). This Golden Oneida will hereafter be the symbol for that state of mind & affairs which we all seek & which produces for each of us the highest good fortune. It is not a place but a condition. An attitude which the physical world recognizes & responds to. It is a mental state or level of consciousness in which the individual experiences the indigenous joy of him or herself. The sub-title, Shine by Yourself with Your Own Light, best expresses the state to be attained. It assumes that each of us has an individual light that can guide us through this life effortlessly. It is like those flying dreams where you just allow the thought & you are aloft. Acceptance & conformity are the caution signs posted along life's highway which continue to warn us off each time we consider taking a road less traveled which would lead to ourselves, to the highest manifestation of what we were meant to be. This book reviews a selection of the thoughts of well-known visionaries,(Freud, Neitszche, Darwin, Socrates, Muhammad, Buddha), as they relate to this search for the Golden Oneida. Each of them have their own path, their own philosophy, but in the end the common denominator is the discovery of the self, the necessity to find one's own light. My hope is that among the thoughts of these great men you will find some inspiration to pursue your own light for it is only in that pursuit & ultimate discovery that each of us can claim that which is rightfully ours & none others.
