THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD CONTAIN HIM
Magic exists beneath our feet, if we only know where to look ...Growing up in a New York orphanage, Ayla has no idea who her family is. It is not until she comes to Ireland that she finds out just how deep her roots really are. Then her past rises up to haunt her and seeks to destroy her as Ayla is abducted and buried alive in the bowels of the earth. Above ground, her three best friends set out to find and save her from a fate that has been lying in wait for centuries. Guided by Ayla's uncles, they must make a treacherous journey that takes them down among the very roots of time.
Often we can feel trapped in thoughts, trapped in identity, trapped in conditioning. It can seem as if we are trapped in the cage of our own minds. This book points you out of this, to show you that both the cage and the person who feels trapped in it, are not real. This book also looks at some of the insane ways we have been taught to approach life and to function in the world, and how to be free of these conditioned behaviours. The content within each chapter is split into passages, each passage being a pointer in itself. You may feel inclined to only read a single passage, and pause to allow time for the words to sink in before moving on. This book is very useful for contemplative or meditative reading. Once you understand what is meant by the cage (simply the conditioned, personal mind that creates suffering) - this book becomes a helpful guide in that as well as being able to read it conventionally from cover to cover - you can pick it up and read any passage at random. Rather than being a book that teaches you anything to remember, it is a tool to point you back towards who you really are before conditioning took over. May this book help you realise your inherent freedom, and allow you to function sanely, effectively and happily in the world.
