About the Author
My “credentials” for writing this book are 63 years of pain, fear, depression, and anxiety – and an incredible seven years of growth, expansion, happiness, and joy. I share my journey with others who are experiencing, or have experienced, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, so they don’t have to search as long as I did to find the hope and help they need. The growth and expansion I have gained have improved my life and health immensely.
About the Book
This is a book of uplifting joy, which I am sharing with others to help on their journey out of darkness. The first chapter, “Broken Pieces,” consists of a series of notes I recorded throughout the middle years of my life. Following each note, I explain the circumstances of my life that lead to writing the note, as well as provide help and hope for those who can readily identify with, or remember, similar types of abuses in their lives and are looking for a way out of the darkness and fear. The remaining two chapters show my progression as I found my “self,” started picking up the broken pieces of my life, reviewed events and people throughout my journey, gradually healed and pieced myself together, and opened up to a glorious new viewpoint and an enlightened outlook. It’s my sincere hope and intent that this book will provide enough ideas and suggestions for the readers to achieve their own unique progression on their journey from darkness to the light.
Today I’m Daniel. Daniel is Dr. Daniel Jackson, one of the characters in Stargate SG-1, a science fiction TV series which debuted in 1997. You can tell that Daniel’s a science fiction character because he’s a sensitive man who would never hurt a child.
I don’t have multiple personalities; in fact, I probably have no personality at all. I’m emulating Daniel – I’m letting Daniel be my guide, my personality, today. I’m reacting like Daniel.
Daniel isn’t my first guide, or my only guide, or my last guide – he’s just today’s guide, subject to change without notice. My first guide was Thunderbolt, a black-and-white pinto horse. Thunderbolt helped me gallop when I needed to escape. … Thunderbolt helped me survive my childhood – and today Daniel is helping me.
