When did you first start writing?
It all started at an early age when my grandmother and my aunt used to tell us stories as children at night, often during moonlight. However, the stories that intrigued me the most were Bible stories such as David and Goliath and the life of Jesus. At Sunday School in Anglican Church, I used to pummel my Sunday School teachers about Bible stories. At home, I would carry Bible to my Dad to read for me.
Once I could read and understand at age 9, it was like a new world just opened to me. Thus, by age 9, I had read through the entire Bible page to page, repeated the same feat the following year when I was 10. After I finished reading through the Bible, my attention turned to any book around. I was literally a book-worm. My father kept a small library at home, and I read everything that was available to me. I would even bargain with my father not to buy Christmas clothes for me then, which was the common practice of that time, but should rather use the money to buy me books.
Interestingly, as I read, I started to write. I wrote poems in my Primary School, some which are still present with me, and even started to keep diaries of events, quite unusual for a child of 10 years!
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind the SSB Book Series is all about my deep desire to know why I am in this world. For instance, why was I born in the late twentieth century AD and why not in the 5th century BC? No doubt there is a Creator God. Why did the Creator decide that I should be born at this time, at this specific place, and not at some other place? What am I here to accomplish? How can I accomplish it?
There is no way a man can obtain answers to these fundamental questions of life without first realising how he was created to function. That is the message of the SSB Book series.
How to Develop Your Mind and Spirit for Exploits is actually the second book in the SSB Book series. SSB stands for ‘Spirit, Soul, and Body.’ It unveils the three realms of human nature – spirit, soul, and body, which is referred to as the tripartite existence. In other words, a human is essentially a spirit being, possesses a soul, and lives in a physical body. This is very obvious if you study the Bible, which is the Manual of Life from the Creator Himself.
SSB Book 1 thoroughly analyses these three realms of human nature, marrying Biblical and scientific knowledge. SSB Book 2, titled How to Develop Your Mind and Spirit for Exploits, deals on how an individual can function and maximize his life purpose, using the knowledge of his tripartite nature.
In other words, SSB Book 1 deals on the anatomy of the tripartite nature of humans, as it completely unveils and simplifies the truth of the structure of humans, while SSB Book 2 deals on the physiological function of the human nature.
This is an interesting book which unveils the knowledge that each of us is born for a specific purpose. Once an individual discovers his or her life purpose and starts to run with it, he or she begins to experience the kind of momentum and fulfillment that baffles the world around him or her. Thus, this book explores how to achieve exploits by utilizing the three greatest forces in life.
Spirit, Soul, and Body (SSB Book 1) answers the following:
• What does the tripartite human nature (spirit, soul, body) really mean?
• Is the Human Spirit a Reality, Myth or mere Superstition?
• Is the Mind the same as the Brain?
The book unveils:
• the truth about Creation and Evolution theory
• the reality of the Spiritual World
• how to tap into the vast power of the mind for success.
