About the Book

There are two types of human beings in the world. You might call one "good," or striving to attain to good, and the other "evil," or attaining to evil.

Of course, there are a good many people stuck in the middle, between good and evil. Some of those who want to be good are unable to be good because they don't know how to go about it. They fail to understand the forces that influence them. If you want to join the ranks of the good, the noble, and the brave, you must know what those forces are, through a very special kind of knowledge that I hope to make available to you in the following pages.

Understanding is essentially the same for all men of goodwill. While we are separated by different languages, we all share the same intuitive knowing -- unless, of course, it has been "educated" out of us by the misuse of language. The language I am using has just one purpose: to bring you back to that common ground of understanding. The problem is that most of us have been partially alienated from our understanding, so it trails behind us as conscience.

For this reason, we are extremely sensitive to words. We tend to equate language with reality, so that a mere word affects us in the same way as the thing for which it stands. For example, someone calls you a fool. You react, you become upset, and you act like a fool.

Words, except when they are loaded with meaning in order to convey understanding, can be confusing. One person uses words to say the right thing. Another person, with rhetorical slyness, twists the facts, but his words go down just as well. Which one do you believe? What is the truth? Confusing? Yes, but if you have understanding, you will not be confused, because you can see the intent behind each person's words.

Words are poison when they are coming from a wrong place, or falling on wrong ears. When they are not backed by understanding, words are a ship without a rudder, without a captain. Your words collide with the words of others, and their words collide with yours. You both react to each other's words and, in doing so, you blind yourself to any reality those words might be representing -- or covering up.

This book will teach you how to become detached from words -- your own, and those of others. You must be able to understand what people are really saying, without words. You were born with the ability to do so; it is as natural to you as the instinct that causes bees to build hives and birds to build nests....
