           EXCERPT FROM   "THE ETERNAL MOMENT":

     

           "We really don’’t want to release the beliefs that got us through life where we felt secure and happy in our ignorance. Some people never do; it’’s easy to stay in that safe place. Wisdom shows us we have the real option to change. If we don’’t change our false beliefs, we can never grow to be better individuals and live better lives. We all have to make those judgments for ourselves. There must be a whole to "IT", a design, and a real truth that covers the absolute of the known universe; some real laws of truth, just as there are in laws of physics and nature. It’’s all too well worked out. The fact that the universe actually works –– gravity, physics, the sun, and all the wonders of nature –– seems to make it so. In my mind, it only makes sense.

           Yet we live our lives each day in isolation, trapped alone inside our minds, our thoughts. Without effort we stay disconnected from the rest of life, we wonder what the purpose is. ““What’’s the meaning of life?”” we ponder, as we go round and round in cosmic orbits waiting for truth. Our intelligence, our upbringing, our health, even our view of ourselves, and how we look at our world around us weigh at varying degrees upon our momentary emotional persecption. We try to distract the dull sameness constantly coating our minds, always fearing nothing means anything. We franticly search for a little clue that, yes, it does matter, that life does have meaning. We write books, we compose music, we design art, and we invent technology to make life easier and simpler, all in an attempt to give it some reason. We then praise ourselves about what a great wise species we are.

This is not a judgment, but an observation. All the books and schools can’’t teach us the truth. I believe it can only be found within us. My brother Larry once told me, ““The only meaning to life is if you live it with meaning, it has meaning." I'm not sure that's true, but what the Hell do I know, each to His own."

                           "This fall, we edited and published another book. The Eternal Moment, written by Stevie Legend, is an autobiography  of a cruise ship musician who battled - and lost many times  - his war on alcohol and drug addiction. His story is impressive because of its startling candid and objective approach - rare in autobiographies. Stevie never blames others for the often shocking and bizarre stories he shares."   Linda and Charlie Dahlheimer,,  editer and publishers at NACG Press. St. Louis, Mo.
