Nonlinear Living

Surrendering to a Higher Power

About the Book

Nonlinear Living is about going with the flow of life.

The master said to go with the flow. But he didn’t say with which flow to go.

Life has many journeys. We have a decision points every second of the day. Our choices determine our future.

Our choices determine who we’ll meet. They determine how we’ll feel.

The choices determine if we’ll struggle or live with ease.

But how do we know?

Well maybe there is no such thing as a best choice. But some choices are better than others.

And each choice opens and closes doors to other choices.

How do we deal with all this?

It’s simple. Get yourself into a happier state. That is a yardstick for making choices. However, it’s not for the pleasure of the moment. It’s for making decisions that help you in the long term.

Do we need to keep fixing ourselves?

Do we need to keep fixing the world around us?

Do we need to keep struggling?

Maybe we can change the way we look at things.

When you change way you look at things, the things you look at change. — Wayne Dyer

Use The Force, Luke. — Obi-Wan Kenobi

This book started with a collection of my blog posts. And it’s building upon that. If you’re familiar with my blog,, you know that it’s dedicated to raising consciousness and helping you lead a happier life.

Eventually this book will totally replace the blog. I’ll be closing down the blog and forward all traffic to my bookstore.

One of the great thing about ebooks is that the author can update the books frequently. After you purchase any of these ebooks, I’ll send you an email notifying you of the update. You can get the update for free.

This is a new journey for all of us.

Come join me.

Your friend,
