Once upon a time a reader told me that my past life was filled with books and maritime adventures. I worked in a library on some kind of a cruise ship. Being a visionary child with a boisterous imagination I took it as a clear coin and acted accordingly from that day forward. My subconscious mind told me to read and write, envisioning stories. I followed my calling by writing essays on my favorite literary masterpieces and accompanying them with hesitant childish drawings that caused my writing to flourish with life and movement. Every sentence was vivid with my cinematic prose. This creative work was my secret weapon, helping me to combat the loneliness of my adolescence. It provided me with a treasure-filled-hideaway where I always was able to discover understanding and love through true friendship. Imagination works as a miraculous crystal ball that can tell you what may happen with you in the future. And the greatest gift we have is to be able to paint our futures the way we envision them. Belief is the key to this door where creation becomes visible, and action is the secret magic powder that gives you an ability to touch and feel, breathe and live the reality of this dream-realized life. I live my dream only because I believed in it all my life and every step I made was moving me closer to the very top of the mountain of my life.
Some mistakes are like ghosts that continue to hunt you down interfering into the present, and sabotaging the future. The very minute you think you are in charge of the voyage, your vessel collisions with an enormous iceberg from your past. Trying to find the way out may take you a lifetime. Learning to live with your most feared persecutors rather than trying to combat them is the only solution.
Betrayal may transform you into a miserable version of yourself. There are people that come into our life not for us to change THEM, but to help US to change. Some experience left you with no will to leave and believe, drained your inner and outer world–in the end you may be a winner with the first place in the game of life. And now you know how to arise from nothingness and create from emptiness.
Canvas of our life is a masterpiece. It is perfected with every person and experience. People craft our personality with their influence on our thinking and feeling. Often we do not realize that the loss in one aspect of life may lead to a gain in another. Like a deaf person learns to listen through his hands we can find true love by wounding our heart with sharp sword of a deadly loss.
He who suffered the most and had no choice but to leave too early was the strongest of us all. He shared his brave smile in the harshest moments of pain making pity impossible and admirations the only response.
Perfection is nonexistent in any form of life. The world around us is full of contradictions, and they either gravitate to each other or the union of similarities creates the opposite. But the moment you stop moving to the excellence your life knocks into a stop sign. This book is about constant hunger for perfection and the ways to make this hunger last a lifetime.
A legend is a desired or feared truth where mysterious and trivial coexists. History often is nothing more than an easy to believe legend and there is no national heritage without both. This book shows a vague border between the two and often while reading it you lose track of real and imaginary. The more you submerge into the narration the stronger you want fable to be the reality.
