The Search My Inner I is a look at an exciting, and sometimes difficult life Journey in my search for peace and purpose that has culminated with the writing of this book. It will take you down the various roads that I have traveled through stories and poetry. It is sometimes raw but also full of serendipitous moments and pure joy. Knowing oneself is paramount to achieving happiness! A mid-life crisis is often what it takes to get one to STOP! Completely stop playing the erroneous game of buy, buy ,buy materialism and to go within to see the sovereignty that we really are, and to find that innate power and talent that God bestowed in every individual. This power was designed especially for each of us so that we could live a free, successful, health, wealthy and happy life. This is the story of my search.
