Let's be honest. Most of us operate in a world of illusion. We make decisions not really knowing why we made them and are unaware how those decisions affect others. In short, we say we believe but are unsure exactly why we believe. We have an innate need to consciously justify our actions and are rarely satisfied with the outcomes. There is the underlying fear of not being fully accepted by others, even in our personal relationships. Because of this, our value system, moral obligations, and understanding of "self" is often skewed or misinterpreted.What has anchored our belief system in the past is long gone. If it does still exist, it is often diminished and ineffective. To restore faith in humanity in this world of disillusion, we must make choices based on established rules and guidelines, some to our detriment. Through reevaluation and self–reflection, we can redefine our existence, functionality, our goals, and travel knowingly and with confidence on our appointed pathways.Esoterica Unveiled requires us to examine our values and determine direction by tapping into the conscience of the reader. This colorful and purposeful collection of short stories, poems, and universal quotes will provide a critical formula toward better understanding of where we are and the factors that influence our humanitarian impact. I trust that through this experience, you may also find clarity and understanding as you accept your unique path without fear or prejudice. This is the first step in working together for the common good.
