In the tradition of The Prophet, Paths to Enlightenment presents a traveller seeking answers to the fundamental questions of life. The fable-like stories invite you to interpret their wisdom in relation to your own circumstances by providing clear guidance that helps you to face challenges and find meaning in times of trouble. The people with whom I’ve shared these stories describe a common experience – they say the words hold a power, a power that speaks directly to them and provides a catalyst for change in their lives. So as you read, think of the issues that most matter to you, the unresolved questions you hold in your heart. Let the ‘I’ in the stories be you, for it is indeed your journey, filtered through your consciousness and interpreted by you. Try to keep an open mind, let the words and images reach your heart and allow the alchemy to unfold.
