“Wherever you are in your journey, I would see this as one stage, one part of it. This one book will not be a means to an end, and you may put it down and never return to it. Or there may be a time when it speaks to you more — then good. I am glad I could contribute to such a process.

I hope it can provide you with some material to interface with your own journey or your own needs at this time, wherever you end up going with it. But as usual, for me, I hope this to be in the direction of developing literacy such that unnecessary suffering is avoided, dehumanization and exploitation are buffered against, perhaps the fate of humanity is shifted away from self destruction, or, hopefully, that you feel a sense of there being company on your spiritual journey in this world.”
