This wonderful book deals with Master John Audet’s thoughts, feelings and experiences in life.
“… But because something is old or has survived the ages does not necessarily make it right or suitable. I see no reason to accept any doctrine or set of ideas when I cannot understand either why they are applied or appreciate their results. By learning what others have to say and by observing the applications of people’s belief systems, I have gained experience and knowledge of the world. And it is the mashing up of all these things that brought me to this place of how a good life can be lived. Not everyone need take everything I have to say as fulfilling their needs, but you will find parts and little gems that will help turn your life into a more worthwhile pursuit…”
—Master John Audet
