Q: Who or what has been the one constant and influential resource for you throughout your life's experience? Can you elaborate just a little as to how or why you have chosen your answer?

A: The most instrumental resources to me other than therapists and the occasional psychic, have been books! There are so many fantastic books that have been life changing for me at various stages of my journey. It started with "The Road Less Traveled," Then, "Living In The Light,""The Courage To Heal,""Homecoming,""The Drama Of The Gifted Child,""The Fantasy Bond,""When Things Fall Apart,""The Wisdom Of No Escape,""The Power Of Now,""A Guide to the I Ching," and many more. They are invaluable and readily accessible.

The Power of Now
By Eckhart Tolle

""The Power Of Now" has been a turning point for me and I would recommend it to anyone who is truly serious about finding peace on earth." - Gillian Anderson
