Golden Motorcycle Gang – Book Giveaway!

 

We are giving away multiple copies of The Golden Motorcycle Gang: A Story of Transformation by Jack Canfield and William Gladstone! Read this excerpt and leave a comment for your chance to win the book!

Oh, what glorious beings they were! Flying through the universe on their magnificent golden motorcycles, the cosmic wind in their hair, going wherever they chose, traveling at light speed, sometimes even faster. Their bodies were ephemeral yet defined, and they en­joyed the ageless youth gifted to their species. Only a few thousand years old, they were considered adoles­cents, not yet the elders of their planet or their uni­verse—elders who each had tens of thousands of years of experience in dealing with complex worlds and the moral difficulties that arose from engaging those worlds.

The beings traveled through this beautiful, endless day, which was much like the many they’d enjoyed to­gether on their annual solstice breaks. As the Class of 2012 at the Academy of Enlightenment, they were fast approaching the time when they would graduate and be given assignments to ensure the balance and stabil­ity of the universe for eons to come, much like their elders before them. Today, however, was a day to enjoy the carefree exhilaration of their youth and freedom.

Dozens of them rode together, sharing their boundless joy through their thoughts, for they com­municated only with thoughts. Their thoughts shaped words, which they immediately understood; yet com­munication was instantaneous, faster than words could ever be, and infinitely more clear.

It was a perfect day and they were in high spirits. Suddenly Jack noticed a small bluish planet off to his right. It was about 50,000 miles below but clearly vis­ible to him. “Hey, look over there. That planet seems to be in trouble. I can sense the energy coming from the surface—and it’s full of turmoil, sadness, anger, even rage. I’ve seen this planet before; I have sensed its people and their growth and their struggles. Although there have always been some discordant sparks from

this world, I’ve never felt such sorrow as I’m feeling today.” Such was Jack’s instantaneous thought to his riding friends, or as they liked to call themselves, the Golden Motorcycle Gang.

On that magical motorcycle ride through the uni­verse, Jack and his friends had easily picked up on the negative energy coming from planet Earth. The suffer­ing radiating from the dazzling blue ball was unmis­takable.

The year on Earth was 1943, and great conflict was raging on much of the planet. The battles engulfed a great deal of its middle band, from one great ocean to the next. The planet was divided into groups called “nations,” which were sometimes the result of geogra­phy but oftentimes the result of human choice. Many of the largest and most militarily well-armed nations were focused on the fighting. Almost all the human beings on the planet at that time were thinking about this great conflict, whether their nation would exist if and when the battles ever ended, and if their loved ones would survive and return from the battlefields around the world.

Jack looked around and realized that for perhaps the only time in his existence, he had no explanation for the energy being emitted by this planet. What was this “war,” as the humans called it? What in a human’s life could happen that would convince him or her that it was right and good to end the lives of millions of other identically created life-forms?

Jack decided he needed to learn as much as he could, as quickly as he could, about this concept of “war.” War was not a reality in the outer reaches of the universe where he lived, and although he lacked the understanding of the impulse to hate and kill, he knew he would not be able to help planet Earth un­less he learned more about war.

Can't wait to ride off on this adventure. I have ridden before and felt the breeze of freedom but this trip sounds like it will be good for my soul.

Sounds like just the thing to read while the snow piles up during the next few months - something to keep my mind looking forward to once more "flying through the universe". Even if that will all be done on a small piece of planet Earth.

Firefighters are awesome anyway, but this guy is super-awesome!

noted, but also wonder how many offspring would survive if they weren't this way.

Love lemons! Cool tips thank you! :)

I am surprised at a number of suggestions in this article ... rather unenlightened, I think. Just on…
