The Book Tariku was thought of in 2008 while travelling around Western Australia, it had been rattling around in my head for a long time, as we drove short cryptic notes were jotted down mostly the chapters were written in my mind.
What brought it to purpose was meeting an older women in Victoria who said to me you ‘my friend have a book to write’, my answer was ‘yes and it’s about my life’ it was said with a cynics humour. Her answer was snapped out ‘No! Your book will show others that this life is not it, there is more to this life’ we are not here for any old reason we are here to gain experience, how else would God experience the emotional side of life of on earth if not through us. We are part of a much bigger plan than we mortals even acknowledge.
It was the beacon I needed to write a book about my life and to actually put into words what I believe the reason to be why I am here on Earth.
It has been three years and many experiences to keep on writing this book, each lesson, each experience adding to my belief that we are here on a mission of our choice. Allowing each and every memory to erupt then disappear leaving no trace of bitterness or animosity towards my teachers.
To allow each lesson to be part of every pleasurable or miserable experience we allow ourselves to be involved in, and now knowing only you can look back and see growth or stagnation. Knowing only you can change it. We have free will here on this planet, to be who we want to be. It really is up to every one of us to choose what we want to experience. To grow and become who we were meant to be in this lifetime on Earth.
I believe my book is totally spirit guided although that statement may be a shock others, to those that know me well, it will be the truth.
I cannot claim to be as strong as my grandmothers in their faith of a spirit guided world, I do know that one in particular has often been my guide that has lead me to find the words write Tariku.
To protect many I have changed names of most people that have entered my life. I wish all who read this novel Enough. Enjoy.
