A Journey of Preparation

Authored by Tom V Morris
Edition: 1

What wisdom can equip us best for the journey of life? A young boy and his uncle are traveling with some friends across the desert in Egypt in 1934, on their way to Cairo. During a rest at a beautiful oasis, the older man decides that the time is right to begin preparing his nephew for the future. So, as the days pass, they talk about such things as inner peace, the challenge of change, the dynamic nature of balance, how things can help or harm us, the true power of the mind, the hidden structures of our world, the importance of wisdom, the elements of human nature, the necessity of love, the requirements of success, and the world's strangest gift of all - uncertainty. The boy keeps a diary. And what he learns on this journey may be as life changing for readers as it is for him.
