DNA’s Double Whirling Rainbow Helix

March 4, 2018

The other day while looking online at a model of our human DNA genetic code I had an insight that I felt was worth noting. As a consequence I added some new sentences to my nonfiction book, Tales of the Whirling Rainbow: Myths & Mysteries for Our Times.

I wrote, “The natural and the mythic image of the whirling rainbow conveys growing awareness of the reality that now in world history with sophisticated communications and transportation systems, different cultures (colors of the rainbow) are whirling (interacting).

“Likewise, as many millions of people have their DNA tested out of genealogical curiosity, we are discovering the fundamental reality of how complex and multifaceted are the whirling double-helix strands of genes that give evidence of each person’s multicultural lineage. These DNA molecules embody the inherited instructions that an organism – such as a human being – needs to develop, live and reproduce. These instructions are found inside every cell, and are passed down from parents to their children.

In virtually all realms of nature, abundant interaction and diversity are characteristic of health and vitality.

While I was adding that passage to the manuscript, I also had the pages of this small treasure formatted professionally, for a better look in both print and eBook editions.

The Latest Soul*Spark: Teach Us to Number Our Days

May 27, 2014

With pleasure, we announce the publication of our 4th Soul*Spark, Teach Us to Number Our Days: A Compilation of Keys for Adept Aging (2nd ed.).

*daysfinalThroughout history most successful and long-lived civilizations have held a place of respect for elders, and have benefited from their life wisdom. By and large this tradition is missing today, to the detriment not only of elders but also of society.

True elders are people who have gracefully accepted the passage of time, integrated their life experience with deep understanding, and made the fruit of their long experience available to others.

But how does one do this? How does one become a true elder? This elegant compilation – a book drawing on the wisdom of all cultures and all times – offers keys from wisdom keepers around the world, from all traditions, and from all eras of history.

“Clearly not everyone who becomes old also becomes an elder. But some do, and many more could…True elders are people who have gracefully accepted the passage of time, integrated their life experience with deep understanding, and made the fruit of their long experience available to others,” writes author and editor Steven McFadden.

As reviewers have commented, this book is a “salutary collection of quotations which put the accent on the positive aspects of conscious aging and sharing wisdom with the world.”

The book is now available for purchase via Smashwords in 10 different ebook formats, so it can be dowloaded and read on any device: ebook reader, smartphone, computer, iPad or tablet.  It is also available now through Amazon.com, and will soon be available through Barnes & Noble, Apple Store, and other major retailers.
