About the Book

Along These Roads We Travel, and each one of us walks on a different path towards learning, suffering, and happiness. . . These roads unite and confound themselves as we advance through life. Our job as a people is to enjoy and assist those, who in one form or another, have entered our road, without losing sight of our own and destination. This book is a multicultural and intimate overview of humanity’s intrinsically existential struggles and expectations today, as well as of our responsibilities toward each other and our planet. These words are inner reflections that include a marked observation of the inequalities and suffering present on this level of life manifestation, and for which we must claim responsibility. Through inner contemplation of our happy moments and devotion to a higher energy, we are able to find the interconnection that Carl Jung referred to as Synchronicity, which, hopefully, will bring us to the discovery of our true Identities and possibilities as human race – capable for caring for and accepting each other.
