The Journey to Source

This book is the first of a series of seven poetry books.
Each book is composed of poems which discuss matters of one specific chakra.
In yoga practice, we usually begin from the root chakra (grounding) and elevate to the crown chakra (en-lighten-ment).
However, I decided to begin with the crown chakra and work my way downwards.
It is the last and highest of the chakras, the one most associated with the metaphysical, spiritual realm.
This is done to honor all those who have physically left this world, yet are still present and connected to us.

May the poetry in this book serve as a reminder that we are visitors here.
One day each of us will let go of everything and everyone we love.
It is this powerful and humbling truth which makes us truly appreciate life.
Let us use this life as the grandest opportunity
to explore, strengthen, heal, grow, love, give, create,
and courageously forge ahead in service to others.
Heart first always in connection to Source.
Delve within and answer the necessary questions:

Who am I?
What is the meaning of life?
Why am I here?

Let the answers which arise manifest as your legacy to this world.
