Chaos & Bliss / Caos y Extasis : A Journey to Happiness: Poetry and Verse to Enlighten the Mind / Una Jornada a la Felicidad: Poemario Para Iluminar La Mente by Jaime R Carlo-Casellas (Paperback / softback, 2008)
Chaos and Bliss is a collection of poems and verse that lets us recognize the magnitude and value of the ups and downs we experience as human beings. In Chaos and Bliss one begins to perceive the beauty, mystery, and miracle of our existence. The scenery for the canvas of this book comes primarily from the pristine paramas of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa National Monument in Southern California, where the author lives. The themes emanate from the author's appreciation and scientific intuition into the armaments available to us to confront the madness that interferes with our happiness, healing, and empowerment-Yoga, Meditation, and Loving Kindness-practices that have been honed by millennia of pragmatic verification. Those who avail themselves of the depth and meaning of Bliss and Chaos will embark on a galleon to sail fearlessly on turbulent seas. The book is for those turbidly overwhelmed by dissonant desolation and joyful memories of days gone by. This book is for everyone.
