The book deals with questions like what makes each of us unique, what makes each of us feel, perceive, experience, and act in our own unique manner and what is the real cause of the stress in our life is. I have been working on these questions in my practice for the last three decades and has made some discoveries. I found that stress comes not from external reality but the specific way each of us perceives it. At the deepest level our experience is not of outer reality, but is a constant inner sensation. This core sensation matches something from one of the three kingdoms in nature. It is as if a specific animal, plant, or mineral lives in each one of us and colors our whole experience of life. It is our constant companion, the other song that keeps singing within us, shapes our personality, determines our life patterns, and is the underlying factor behind our stress. I have set down the knowledge that decades of seeing patients has taught me about the inner other song within each of us in order to guide the reader to awareness of his own other song and find release from it.
What was one of the big things you learned from creating this book?
That truth is simple, and if clearly understood can be conveyed to others. Also that the fundamental truth behind all sciences and art is one. At a deeper level the borders between art, science and philosophy fade. and that music, psychotherapy, homeopathy, art , literature, chemistry, botany, zoology etc all speak of the same truth. This is very beautiful to see and a very useful tool for healing
Which part of the book was most compelling to you?
The part about the seven levels of our experience. I found that each one of us ca perceive reality in any one of seven levels. The discovery of this is a breakthrough for me. What’s been the most rewarding part of this process?
The most rewarding thing is to find the whole concept useful in knowing myself better
What new projects do you have on the horizon?
