Our job is to open the doorways to change. To do so we’ll need a guided tour of the virtual realm where reality is infinitely changeable. In reviewing this work, I am at times reminded of sitting in a vast planetarium with the astronomer-guide leading me on a journey through the heavens as they unfold in splendor before my eyes.
I must confess that at times even I have difficulty understanding some of what I was reading . I found myself rereading sentences, or even whole paragraphs, over and over until I was satisfied I understood what I was explaining. In fact, the harder I struggled to pin down what I was reading, the more elusive this understanding became. Finally I realized, I wasn’t just reading the material, I was trying to change it to conform to my own perception of reality. Once I understood this, I relaxed and actually began enjoying what I was reading. To my amazement, I also understood it much better. I am reminded of the Beatles’ lyric: “Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream.” So I urge the reader to enjoy the ride as I lead us on an amazing journey through the mind-body continuum and the collective mind we all seem to sense but often have no words to describe. In Beyond Medicine I hope to provide the words, the pictures, and the road map to follow, while navigating this journey on your own.
