Ride The Wind Laughing is about building a 51-foot sailboat almost single-handedly in the back yard with virtually no money-at least, it started out that way. It's about the mystical nature of the Laws of Manifestation . about how dreams and distant possibilities come into existence on Planet Earth. Over a period of four and a half years, a series of events unfolded that were far more interesting than the long hours of hard physical labor or the recounting of boring and repetitive tasks essential to any physical construction project. Working with the wonderful people of rural Nova Scotia, its fishing villages and small local businesses proved as interesting as the magical unfolding of events making it impossible to deny that life itself is controlled by some great invisible hand which has a vested interest in seeing Its creations completed and It's dreams fulfilled. At the age of 44, I had come to a second major crossroad in my life. The first occurred when I left behind the world of corporate business at age 35. The next 9 years were years of spiritual and religious training, and the study in detail of as many aspects of esoteric thinking as I intuitively felt led to greater and greater things. I finally came to the point where my questions all ceased. I had sound mental concepts and could talk the talk, but I had not yet walked the walk to the journey's end. Of what value was all this information, knowledge, and perspective I had so diligently obtained if it could not be practically applied? Ride the Wind Laughing is also a story about riding the winds of life with equanimity and contentedness despite the hardships of daily life. It's about perspective . about looking down on life much as would the student pilot on his very first flight. Once the view from above is attained, there's no going back to being land-locked again. Like the wind, this is a story you can feel. May it expand your perspective as it did mine.
