Welcome to My Book.
The Year 2004 was a year of rapid growth for me and among many
other things that are a beautiful part of my journey was the book "The
Parables of Life" An Awakening Journey.
It all started in January 2004. I had been writing a couple of
articles about my Shambhala experiences for magazines and they were
being received enthusiastically by their readers. It also created a
stream of enquiries from people wanting to receive the Shambhala
As I finished writing and continued working with the 7 steps I found
that there were many more articles popping into my mind. All of which I
am already using and the results are/were absolutely mind blowing.
During all of these wonderful experiences I happened to jokingly state
the question to my OPOM's. "It's almost as if this is turning into
a book?" To which they replied! "Isn't that what you want Ian?"
I had to take a few deep breaths and think about that one, haha! I
hadn't really considered it within the realms of my own possibilities,
yet all of the information that came through is clearly serving a
grand purpose. I then jokingly asked. OK! When is this going to be
published? To which they replied. "The end of summer" I was
shocked, amazed, astounded all rolled into one. I do know from friends
that it takes a while to even get it to the publisher and then printed
etc. It wasn't until a few days later that I realized I had not asked
which summer, to which I could feel them releasing a resounding chuckle.
And so! Now it is here.
I feel that there is a trinity of purposes to the book. The first two
being guidelines and examples that will assist the reader to understand
who they are and the talents we all have waiting to be stimulated into
action. The third is something that is very close to my heart and what I
have always striven to achieve which is to unconditionally assist and
promote all others that are making a difference through their work. You
will find many links, books and websites being shared within the book
leading to many great examples that are making a huge difference in our
