About the Book

We can experience our life as a metaphor, one in which time flows as a continuous stream, and all of us, in our boat of life, fl owing down the stream toward an unknown destination. We are often unaware of the effect our mental model of reality has on our everyday perceptions and behavior. Embracing a positive metaphor can move our lives forward in a conscious direction. In this book, I will present information that can be used to stay on our natural flow; information that can help us avoid the sandbars of depression and disappointment, navigate the rapids of sudden change, and avoid getting dashed against the rocks of failure or success that we will all inevitably encounter on the stream of time.

In 1967, the summer of love, Jerry experienced a major life change. He moved to California, to follow the path of a spiritual seeker or, as it was called, the hippie lifestyle. Between 1967 and 1981, he lived in a number of communes and engaged in a twenty-one-day fast in the wilderness. He worked as a handyman, vegetarian cook, migrant farmer, furniture mover, and tarot card reader. During this period, he also co-authored a book entitled On Becoming High about finding a higher spiritual self.

Dr. Spiegel lives in San Diego, California. He is constantly exploring and developing modalities for reaching higher states of consciousness. Above all, he remains dedicated to the idea that one’s journey in life is never over until it’s over.
