Born in the United States in 1954, Jim Wonders graduated from Louisiana State University in 1976 and immigrated to Australia in 1986. He soon purchased some mountainous rainforest, married an Australian lady, and raised a family with three children, until their divorce ten years later. He became a naturalised Australian citizen in 1992, while retaining his US citizenship. Jim lives a healthy, enjoyable life and still plays a few sports, including basketball and body surfing, near where he lives in Noosa. His interest in spiritual realities began as a young child, as did his affinity with nature. In 1994 he joined Eckankar, which he considers as his eternal spiritual path. In writing his first book, Jim shares some of his realisations and ideas on many aspects of life, whose challenges, lessons, spontaneity, joys, sorrows, love, disappointments, and changes help him to thrive, as he continuously seeks to improve his state of being with the assistance of inner divinity.
