Excerpt from book:

Be thankful this day for service.

We all have been of service to others in our life, whether if it was to our employer, family member, friend, even a stranger, or ourselves. There are times when we perform acts of kindness, a noble or good deed out of reluctance; we might even hold it over a person’s head. Most acts of service are carried out with a level of fear, obligation or selfishness with expectation. For example, you do a favor for someone. Then a few weeks later you need something. You approach the person and ask for a favor. They may say, “I’m sorry I’m unable to.” Then you say, “Remember when I did that favor for you.” In this manner you expected something in return when the act was performed and now the expectation is lessened and transformed to guilt being placed upon the individual. The same thing can happen if you live with a roommate, spouse or family member, who always expects acts of service or kindness. This is not good for your soul because you are performing a service out of fear. For example, “If I don’t do this they will be upset with me.”
Acts of service, kindness, and generosity are meant to be heartfelt and genuine acts without expectations. How do you know if they are genuine acts or if someone really is in need? Knowing the difficulty of this considering the society and times we live in, the voice of consciousness will let you know. Your spirit will move you to aide others in their time of need. No matter the circumstance, you’ll be ready to serve another when the opportunity presents itself. We are meant to help each other daily, not just during the holidays or special events, or opportunities. There is a heartfelt joy when we know our deed has helped another. This is a joy that will continue to grow as we genuinely help others. We all have a part to play in the service of others. Just because Tom is volunteering at a shelter doesn’t mean you have to as well. Find what speaks to your soul.

Kickstarter is a global platform for crowdfunding of different artistic and innovative products.

My book Awakening Her is a book for men on how to love a modern women. It is the first book of its kind. It is a hybrid of new philosophy, informal psychology, and everyday life.

The book was written purely with love and inspiration based on my overpowering wish to help men to not only to understand women, but also to recognize their own ability to awake the primal grace and beauty in the woman with whom they share their life.


Tell us why we should give to your campaign:

On one hand I think it is really important for book’s message to be spread around the world. Society today has lost its natural purpose. We strive for more worldly things without seeing that we already have everything we need inside us. We want to complicate the simplest things, such as love, understanding, and compassion. Therefore, our relationships have become complicated.

The book carries a very special message on finding the essence of our existence within ourselves, simply by being a loving man or a loving woman.

But on the other hand, when I write I feel free. And, I feel a purpose – my deepest drive that keeps me creative all the time. By supporting this project, you will not only support sharing the ultimate truth about love between a man and a woman around the world, but you will also show that you believe in my writing.
