This is a true story. In the unfolding of it the troubles of humanity are exposed as well as the times when something worth knowing is learned. Occasionally even a time of celebration occurs. As all lives are unique throughout history, this story has its own unique flow. Some of the highlights are briefly noted here, the details are in the book.
In early childhood an incident of being ignored occurred for whatever reason. It just happened. And yet, infants get impressions about life on this earth even without having acquired the ability to articulate them for many years or maybe even for a lifetime. In this story, activities reveal some signs of this.
Feeling in the body is a focus throughout the book although it seems lost in the middle. It gets overlooked as it often does amidst everyday commitments and activities. Even in a busy household, conversations about feelings may not occur. And as the years pass, this can be a challenging blind spot.
There are two committed relationships formed in this story, one is a marriage and the other a live-in partnership. Both have big challenges. The choices made may not have been the best. And yet, action to learn from wise teachers is transformational.
Much of the book involves a game focused on feeling in the body. This game was created one step at a time experimentally. It turned out to be intriguing in that the essence of the feeling experienced as a group was hard to describe. And no matter how many times the game was played with different people, the mystery remained.
The unfolding of this mystery involves openness and patience. Along the way, renowned leaders in science and spiritual affiliations are consulted. And life itself becomes a powerful teacher.
