This book offers a personal quest. It can empower readers to put their lives onto a path of both personal fulfilment and genuine service to others. This quest can also facilitate transition through a major crossroads of life. These crossroads, such as leaving home, mid-life crisis, career change, loss of a loved one, divorce, a healing crisis, spiritual crisis, retirement, can be quite disorienting and emotionally traumatic. But these times often provide the necessary doorway to future growth and self-empowerment.
