"Why be the thousandth hand knocking on a well-worn door, when you can flow through a doorway that was never really there..." From The Speaker Within

Take the Journey. Scroll on...

The Speaker Within

A collection of well over two hundred of Adrian's sayings.

The sayings themselves were mused upon a bush trail, soliloquised in the bathtub, conjured in a conversation, spun in a dream, or inspired from a Reiki session.  Many of the sayings have been absorbed and re-conjugated from a variety of sources, yet nearly all come through what he came to regard as ‘The Speaker Within’, reflecting either his own growth or on what he had most to learn. 


You may decide to voyage through this book by reading from cover to cover, searching out a sub-heading relevant to you, meditating on the sayings you find pertinent, or even by holding the book in your hands, and forming a question.
