Part I/The Beginning
About the Book
No doubt there will be saints and sages in our time; Masters of Wisdom and great Elders. There seems to be an endless stream of quotes from the sages of the past but where shall we find our great ones? Indeed, in this world of great confusion there must rise from this present day civilization brave souls willing to take giant steps for the preservation of our humanity. “No seeking, no finding” is what Bhante Dharmawara, the venerable Buddhist monk that taught me oh so many years ago, used to say. Adventure and seeking is what “Leaving Lucifer” is all about. All noble souls began at the beginning; just as you must. Let’s honor our yearning hearts and break away from the confining influences of the brain. Take this journey with me and in the end, it is my hope that you will be inspired take your own.
About the Author
Elizabeth Romig was born with adventure racing through her blood. Born of a pioneering family in Alaska, she is a third generation “sourdough” (born in Alaska and peed in the Yukon River; yes to both!). Her grandfather came to Alaska before the turn of the 19th century and her father was born in Seward, Alaska. She has a great love of humanity and has found her “education” in understanding the many cultures and religions of the world. It is no surprise that when, as a young woman, the opportunity to travel to India to study with a venerable Buddhist monk, she was instantly drawn to the notion. She has formally studied in the non-mainstream philosophies of life and man’s future development. She is a teacher of Color/Vipassana Meditation and is devoted to the cause of awakening the heart through experiential practices and instruction.
