Permission to Live

permission-to-live Permission to Live, is a novel which tells the story of one man's path to "filling the vacancy", which remains for so many of us who've achieved a level of material or professional success and cultural or religious conformity, yet still feel a hole.  A very full life which is very unfulfilling. It opens with a recurring epiphany that, perhaps, you too, have felt: A realization that achievement is not gratifying to the whole person.  Further, the main character is battling a one of life’s most difficult decisions:   “It was something that I knew to be wrong, yet my heart couldn’t be more certain that it was right.” Readers are engaged, connecting with the emotion-stirring, life-like situations and characters, and will be inspired and empowered as the story unfolds.  Experiences with a “witch,” challenges with family, career and community, as well as learning opportunities with counselors, coaches and people from every day life contribute to the life-lessons of the story. As in his mentoring, with this introspective novel Ray teaches his concepts of The Four Keys and The Master Key. Concepts which can unshackle individuals, relationships and groups, enabling Permission to Live.
