Sometimes you just have to press on.
The trip had not gone well.
A year long planned trip to the outback of Australia had gotten off to a rocky start. Sometimes the best-laid plans of mice and men go astray.
The group of one hundred fifty photographers and writers had encountered many difficulties, mainly in transportation. The organization we were traveling with planned the trip using discounted last minute airline tickets and tours to keep the price down. The fly in the ointment came about because we had inadvertently decided to travel on a school holiday in Australia, as a result obtaining flights became extremely difficult. In many cases, the airlines were completely booked and getting where we wanted when we wanted became next to impossible.
Because of the complexities encountered, Barry Barker, the group leader decided to call a meeting at the hotel in Cairnes where most of us were staying.
He explained the situation fully and stated that if anyone wanted to cancel the trip and go home, they could, their unused money would be refunded.
As I looked around, expecting the worst, no one raised their hands. We were all in for the duration.

In the following month, we all learned to be more flexible and to take life as it came, in time everything fell into place and everyone was able to experience everything and far more of what they came for.
After many changes and grumblings from some of the participants our missions were accomplished, we had many once in a lifetime experiences and encounters that we couldn’t have had anywhere else.
The photos and stories that came out of that month in the outback were incredible. None of which would have been possible if we had gone home in the beginning.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race, what happens after death, the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms if they do exist.
There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God!
This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, although, many times the people with me seemed to experience nothing or a totally different reality, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception.
