It includes twelve paintings by the author to help describe the ideas. The questions of who we are and how we fit into the world have been pondered since the beginnings of human history. Some similar answers have recurred in many different times and cultures, and is sometimes referred to as the perennial philosophy. It involves the idea that a single unifying existence lies beneath the surface of the countless individuals we see, and that this deeper state of being is accessible to each individual, leading to a more fulfilling existence. Topics discussed include, the essence of our existence, how being is spread over time and space, the relations of thoughts to our being, two types of happiness, and the relationship between our individual selves and being in general. Included is an appendix that discusses where these ideas fit into the general history of philosophy. This short manual is a fresh exploration of these themes, presented in everyday language. The format is compact on purpose, so that one can grasp the whole picture at once, and more easily see how the different parts fit together. Combined with original artwork by the author, the book is meant to leave a lasting impression.
