Told in the form of a story, this book takes you on a journey through the "bitter" experiences of the author as she learns to master her appetites for the pleasures of this world. She then shifts gears to take the reader on the "sweet" mystical experiences that await her in some of the world's sacred sites in Italy, Egypt, Greece, Israel, Thailand, and Peru. Blending the bitter and sweet experiences allows the author to anchor this new way of being that is the destiny of all of those on a mystic's path.
The answers you give yourself are not meant to make you feel badly about yourself. These answers will serve as lights on your path to full emotional authenticity which is a prerequisite for full alignment with God. Told in the form of a story, this book takes you on a journey through author Robin L. Johnson's "bitter" trauma and her "sweet" mystical experiences through Israel, Eygpt, Greece, Thailand and Peru. Ms. Johnson believes that it is only in the blending of both bitter and sweet experiences that we can anchor a new way of being. This is the destiny of all those on a mystic's path.
