About The Book

This enchanting tale is actually the format for the journey many souls awaken to in a lifetime. The framework of this story is using the idea of a lighthouse that is set upon a rock in the middle of the ocean. Its job or duty is simply to ‘Be What It Is’ and share Its beam of Light into the darkness. In so doing the boats that sail into this region will be saved from a catastrophe by running into submerged rocks as they are shown The Way to home and harbor. As humans born into this worldliness or ocean of samsara we begin our journey as beautiful, pure beings finding ourselves, at times, falling victim to various states of mind and feelings...losing our way. We disconnect from a true sense of value, worth,
meaning or purpose from what we are and why we are here in this lifetime. Lighthouse started its journey as a beautiful,
purposeful lighthouse but over time became bored, sad, fearful and self-pitying by not ‘remembering’ the ultimate reason for its life and purpose. As in many stories we always love the ‘hero’ walking into the moment and rescuing the ‘fallen angel’, so to speak. In our lives when we come up to the end of our human understanding looking for solutions everywhere outside we finally give up, let go and/or surrender.

Here in our story when Lighthouse fell asleep and has an amazingly beautiful experience of light, music, love and freedom something heralds the coming moment of true realization. Shortly after this ‘dream or vision’ Lighthouse recalls the fact that there had been a Presence right here on this rock. And It had promised Lighthouse that if It would simply ‘remember’ Its Name that at anytime Lighthouse needed anything It would be fully present. Its Name was key to bringing anything necessary for Lighthouse...all Light-keeper said It needed to do was to: “Call Me and I will be there!” In other words...remember Me! So we come to the ending of this wonderful sharing. We find a joy-filled Lighthouse..grateful, happy, content and fulfilled. It now knows that It was definitely in Its right place all the time expressing Its Divine Purpose. It had always been meant to simply beam Its bright Light of Love and Service out into this vast darkness finding once again the true joy of living.

An added note: Readers will figure out that the tale is a metaphor for our lives as we tend to lose sight of the
value and meaning of our existence. The story demonstrates that each of us has a reason for being here. But when we come up against obstacles oftentimes we succumb to the challenges forgetting that there is a strength, power and light within all. And as we awaken to that fact we rediscover ourselves once again being ‘on purpose’ and experiencing the true joy of living.
