Son of the Great River

"Son of the Great River" describes two boys coming of age in the early Bronze Age. This novel begins to intensify the moment a stranger from the south dies in Saffu's arms. He leaves his tribe and travels to the land of cities and kings.

I noticed how death awakened something inside these young boys. It motivated them to go on the adventure of a lifetime, and not, let death take this away from them. Each lived their lives authentically and uniquely. They followed the path their heart's craved within their soul.

This book is masterfully put together to give inspiration to and motivation to anyone who has not decided to take their own journey into the heart and soul of human existence. As you read this book, you will find yourself asking the questions: Am I living authentically? Am I living the life of my dreams? Am I really following my heart? If not, why not?

This is a story about a woman who is accidently shot and goes into a coma. Upon awakening, she is without memory. Left with no past, present, or future anticipations our minds tend to create for ourselves, she moves forward in life following her heart and her senses. Few people can do such a thing and tend to find themselves following the path of tradition and expectation. "The Encounter" is a guided reflection on how our soul is drawn into the passions that fulfill our hearts in ways expectation and beliefs cannot come close to. There is much feeling and sensuality put into this book allowing the reader to come alive to what is most authentic within us all.

"Chronicles of the Undead" transports the reader into the realm of London vampires between the years of 1793 and 1826. Written in diary format, author A. F. Stewart masterfully reveals the quest of three generations of the Harrington family to record their interactions with the undead.

Samuel Harrington begins the diary entries on April 26, 1793, when new neighbors move in. Upon meeting Henri Forain and his cousin, Eleanor de Burgh, Samuel immediately strikes a friendship with Henri. Their relationship is forged by the number of common interests they share. It begins as an enjoyable encounter, but when Samuel discovers certain truths about his new friend, the situation takes a turn.

Samuel descends into a darker, far more sinister realm than he thought imaginable. Too enthralled by his new knowledge, he discards the things he has held dear throughout his life and begins a new evil existence. It isn't long before Samuel pulls those he formally loved most into his menacing acts as unwilling victims.

Samuel's son, Edmund and later Edmunds' daughter Charlotte take up the quest to stop the evil that has destroyed their family.

Without one line of dialogue and with an exquisite command of the written word, Stewart has created memorable, well-rounded, developed characters and has painted an intriguing and highly entertaining dark tale that kept this reader turning one page after another. "Chronicles of the Undead" is akin to "Interview with a Vampire" in its classy depiction of vampires and the twists and turns that influence the characters' lives.

When the writing shines as is the case of A. F. Stewart, genre is never an issue. Whether you enjoy fantasy or not, "Chronicles of the Undead" is a must read and is guaranteed to hold the reader's attention from the innocent beginning to its deadly end. I definitely look forward to more from author A. F. Stewart.

Runners to your mark, get set, go! When I was running track in high school, the sprinters lined up on the track to run a 100 yard dash. Each of them had one single focus and intention. They wanted to be the first one to cross the finish line before anyone else. This required unwavering attention inwardly and outwardly upon their goal because a single mistake could cost them the race.

When a person is engaged in accomplishing a goal, you have to set your mind and heart to the task at hand. Setting a goal to accomplish is a good start. Along the way there needs to be mini goals to keep you on track for your main goal. Setting goals keeps you focused. They make you follow through with your highest intention.

To see through your eyes what you cannot see with them is a good way to meet your goals in life. For example, take a pebble and throw it into a pond or lake. Watch the ripples move and spread out across the lake or pond. Then see how far you can follow the pebble as it makes its way to the bottom of the lake or pond. At some point, you will not be able to see where the pebble is going. This requires you to see through your eyes what you no longer can see with them. You know exactly where that rock went. It went to the very bottom. It landed on the foundation of what holds every bit of that pond together.

Your soul or your inner vision is just like this pond. When you chose to focus your attention on a particular intention or goal, you place your energy into life. Then, a ripple effect causes actions to take place across the pond or your life. Although none of us can predict our paths in life, we can always know where we are going. We are going to the Source. It is the foundation that holds all of life together.

How can you know what your focused intention is? What is your favorite hobby? Have your ever thought of making it your career? For instance, do you love golf and find yourself being a salesman? Then try to find a way to invest in or sell golf equipment. There are many ways to tap into your abundant thoughts and connect them to your interests. My hunch is that you will be glad you did. Out of your abundance or thoughts will come the riches of your life.

I know of one man who had a dream. He had a dream to become the next President of the United States of America. His dream was to make the playing field even for all Americans economically. His message was one of Hope. His focused intentions were to be in a position of living to fulfill his dream. He went all over the country to share his message of hope for all Americans. After 2 long years of campaigning, winning the Democratic nomination, running against the Republican nominee John McCain, on November 4, 2008, President Barack Obama saw his focused intentions manifest themselves into material reality. He made history by becoming the first black American President of our time.

Do you have a dream? What is it? Have you been focusing on this dream for years? Why not make it a reality? Put your dream into reality by making small goals you can attain one step at a time until you reach your ultimate focused intention. You will be glad you did. Insight is to see from within what you want to see in front of you. Stay true to your purpose in life. Know the reason why you are here. Then create meaning from your life by fulfilling you destiny.

My children are in their teens. They both have a desire to fulfill their dreams. My son wants to be an airline pilot, and my daughter wants to be a chef. They are making plans for school to achieve these dreams. Each step of the way will be challenges to overcome and discipline to make their dreams come true.

When my son was younger, he wanted to be a fireman. He went to the local fire station and viewed a huge red truck. Then he wanted a small toy truck of his own. If he would continue to want this dream, his inner vision of the world would form a material reality over time. In the following paragraph I want to share with you how a one pointed desire creates a material reality. I will describe it as a Miracle.

A miracle is Energy In Formation. Anything you hold your attention on over time is energy in formation. We are transformed by what we hold dear to us and fill our heart with the experience of what we desire. Our intent to dwell upon what we hold sacred is our soul. Thus, the miracle of transformation that occurs from this quality of existence creates a manifestation of the formless into form.

This miracle is a single focus on what you desire to bring into being. It connects your heart and mind together. This unification creates movement in the body to make your desires come true. Your soul holds all of this together by creating the kind of character needed to fill your body with inspiration and energy. This connection between your mind, body, and soul forms patterns consistent with the obtainment of your ultimate desire. Through daily actions and the gathering of others with similar desires, you will make your dreams come true.

When I was running marathons in my early to late twenties, I had to practice daily running. I didn't just go out and run 26.2 miles without mentally disciplining my mind and body to train for these events. Every day I would put on my t-shirt, shorts, and shoes and go outside to run in the rain or sun. Nothing was going to stop me from realizing my goal of finishing a marathon.

I can still remember the end of that Chicago Marathon many years ago. The last three miles of this marathon were filled with people cheering us all on. I remember crying and feeling my body be filled up with energy beyond myself. My body was exhausted. It was the energy of the crowd that inspired me to go further and finish what I had started many months ago in the trails I ran through the woods and the streets near my home. My tears and cold chills running through my body was my soul, reminding me that I had finished the journey I started, and my soul was proud of Sam.

Many men and women with strong masculine tendencies believe that physical control of an environment means dominance over it. And thus, we will know peace. This does not serve humanity well. As we mature, we become more soul than body. It is our inner dominion over our own world inside us "collectively" that will heal the world around us. Using our inner strengths to care for and build a world around us that reflects the inner qualities of existence inside us will manifest an experience of harmony that cannot be shaken.

"The Law of Attraction" is a phrase you are hearing a great deal about these days. It is not a new idea. You have heard it in these phrases as well: "You will become what you think about." "You will reap what you sow." "What goes around comes around." and "For every action is an equal and opposite reaction." The ideas set forth in these phrases are for you and me to realize that where we place our attention will draw unto us the desires making themselves known to us. We have a choice to make during these moments of contemplation. We can dwell and explore these experiences or move on to the next thought.

You and I are like magnets. We draw to us what we habitually place our attention on. The instant we realize this part of us is able to create from a one-pointed desire is monumental. It is here we become the creators of our own destiny. This is not to say that we are The Creator. It is to say that who we are will become known through us as we explore the nature of our soul in its depths.

As we age, conditions are placed on us to direct us along our paths intended to keep us from harm. Even if we manage to stay out of harms way, we move into a state of stimulus-response reactions toward life. This draws us further and further away from the natural state of pure being we came into the world with as an infant.

When you and I follow the desires of our most authentic self, we will be given a path that will make work our play and our play our work. This one pointed desire is our path into endless abundance and endless joy. It all begins with a simple question and four simple words expressed to your Creator and your most authentic self: how may I serve?
