More > the part where a friend interrupts you and asks what you are doing.) Once you're able to make the decision about your initial approach, you answer the question, writing a brief note or as much as suits your taste.

By the time you are done with this workbook, you have looked at every category of human thought from every possible angle. With Roget's 238 categories each divided by Aristotle's topics of invention, it will be some time before you finish the book completely.

More > cultural misunderstanding. He confides that he has developed a kind of second sight that has on more than one occasion kept him alive, and tells him now something big is about to go down in his life.

Nevertheless, his second sight has so compellingly convinced him of its validity that he has undertaken to put together his notes for those who are interested in reading of his strange journey, and knowing how to avoid the pitfalls he has encountered. "This is a short manual on cultivating your soul and fostering your relationship with the divine. The effects of this process are comfort in times of crisis, relief from suffering, blessedness, and second sight. None of this is about what you believe. It is about faith, and orienting your soul properly."< Less
