About this title
These triumphant stories of everyday courage will en-lighten and inspire you. Calling All Angels exemplifies how inextricably we are all linked across social and economic spectrums. You will become aware of the universe of startling connections that we often miss due to distractions and preoccupations that can occur while trying to stay in our own lane and navigate our own lives. These illustrations also show how one can choose his or her attitude in any given set of circumstances, just as Viktor Frankl demonstrated to us in his book, Man's Search for Meaning (Buccaneer Books, 1993).This book is designed for anyone who has experienced, or desires to experience, angelic messages in his or her own unique way. How they appear to us and how we discern their constant and continual influence has yet to be revealed. The purpose of this book is not only to share a journey of discovery but also to encourage others to become aware of and share similar revelations. In this book you will find unique, powerful, and uplifting stories from a variety of individuals.From the Author:
It has been a great privilege and touched my heart and soul to have had the opportunity to meet the many "angelic" people I have written about in this book. I am forever transformed through the experiences I shared with them and am very grateful to impart these hidden treasures.
Never had it occurred to me to make a practice of interviewing taxi drivers. Indeed, I only required their services occasionally. After several profound encounters with taxi drivers and other remarkable individuals, I now realize more fully how life can bring inordinate surprises and can even involve jarring awakenings!
My memory takes me to Somerset Maugham's book, The Razor's Edge, where his main character expresses the "belief that ultimate satisfaction can only be found in the life of the spirit"...and this character intimated that on his return to America from abroad he would perhaps drive a taxi to find a way to fulfill that goal.
Indeed, many of the people, drivers and others I have written about were truly inspirational. I have an even better sense of the great diversity within our culture and also what we have gained historically and currently from the richness that we, as immigrants, have brought to our country.
The concept of angels and the part they play in a person's life are nothing new, and they are especially not anything new in the literature of today. Entire books have been written on the subject of angels, a word derived from the Greek, angelos, meaning "messenger."
D. H. Lawrence wrote that, "The highest function of mind is its function of messenger." How they appear to us and how we discern their constant and continual influence has yet to be revealed. The purpose of this book is not only to share my journey of discovery but also to encourage others to become aware of and share similar revelations.
It is hoped that not only do these insights open your eyes to the concept of angelic influence, but also to the various forms that they may take in your life. There are surely times when we all have felt alone. In looking back over my life, experience has revealed that we are ultimately never alone and are connected, unconditionally loved, guided, supported. This is illustrated in several taxi and other related stories that also show how angelic encounters can happen anywhere and often. I am confident that through reading the book you may be prompted to discern this actuality in your own life.
My life's continuing journey has evolved to envision a New Eden: a more loving, compassionate, and insightful way of living. This inner vision, when it is allowed to advance and move through us, can transform our individual lives--and, hopefully, the world around us. Amazingly, this has been visualized and expanded through my recent thoughtful and enlightened communications with taxi drivers from fascinating and diverse backgrounds. These interactions took courage on the part of the drivers to speak candidly as they responded with grace and interest when I inquired about their lives.
Have you ever been rescued from a dangerous situation? This book will demonstrate how this has recently occurred in my life. First, my car engine stalled while I was driving at nine p.m. on a very busy street. The car continued to roll forward but I was finally able to stop the vehicle completely by pulling up the emergency brake. In spite of my obvious plight, many cars just whizzed by as if my car were invisible.
Luckily, a service station was not far away, but the attendant was unable to offer aid--only the use of a telephone. While trying to call for road assistance, a taxi driver, who was filling his car with gasoline, overheard my anguish and asked if he could be of help. To my great relief, he immediately responded by single-handedly pushing my car into the service station, away from the busy traffic. Before I could even properly thank him, when I looked up, he was nowhere in sight. I have always wanted to express my deep gratitude to this "angel" for his kind and timely rescue.
Each story reads like a book within a bookoffering not only stirring accounts of those behind the wheels of the taxicabsthat millions of people use each day but other experiences and coincidences that have been inspirational and, even in certain instances, lifesaving. These stories entertain and inform with dramatic and astounding tales of life-changing and courageous events that transpire among the people in each world within a world.
Mind-expanding tales are included that depict devoted parents who hold multiple jobs just to support and adequately educate their families. These and other stories from different venues have affected me so deeply that I felt compelled to share them.
Surely, one could view any profession microcosmically, as a world within a world. Yet, there is something extraordinary about the sacredness associated with those who minister to us as nurses, doctors, hairdressers, wait staff, taxi drivers, and many other service-related professions.
First, they come from literally everywhere in the world. As a result, the reader, through these accounts, actually gets to see this world within a world. Second, cabbies especially, and others who serve the public, experience a rare cross section of emotion, drama, and life that not many of us even know exist. Third, these exceptional people have learned how to deal with just about any situation in life, possibly even more varied than those a police officer would normally encounter.
In order to handle a wide array of happenstances, they have come to a place within themselves and are living examples of how a compassionate and grace-filled New Eden can manifest itself in our world after it is first experienced within each individual consciousness. Seeing through their eyes will completely alter the way we view those who drive taxies, care for others, and serve the public. The insights in this book can conceivably alter your perceptions of life with its unique ups, downs, breakups, and make-ups.
These triumphant stories of everyday courage will enlighten and inspire you. Calling All Angels exemplifies how inextricably we are all linked across social and economic spectrums You will become aware of the universe of startling connectionsthat we often miss due to the distractions and preoccupations while trying to stay in our own lane while navigating our own lives. These illustrations also show how one can choose his/her attitude in any given set of circumstances, just as Viktor Frankl demonstrated to us in his book, Man's Search for Meaning (Buccaneer Books, 1993).
This book is designed for anyone who has, or desires to experience angelic messages. Receiving these may not happen during a taxi ride or hospital setting. Yet, you can be sure that enlightening revelations are always transformative and life altering.
My hope is that Calling All Angels starts the meter running in your "taxi" so that when you exit the "cab" you will see your world differently--with greater clarity and compassion--no matter what the setting or circumstance. I invite you to enjoy the gift of profound connections with our fellow travelers on the inner highway to a New Eden.
Our greatest strength is not in how much we differ from each other
but in how much--how very much--we are the same.
