Who am I? What is Real?

Our planet stands at the cusp of a paradigm shift, and many of us are asking ourselves the questions that truly matter. In poetic prose, Notes to Self: Meditations on Being steers the reader to the most basic, essential – and yet overlooked – truth of existence:

 You are not merely this body, with its joys and problems.
You are more than your mind, with its thoughts, worries and judgments.

 The 223 notes to Self invite you on a journey of opening and Self-discovery. The notes are reminders to feel rather than think.They are pointers to a world beyond the mind where you are alive fully in this moment.

Step out of your mind!
…and discover your deepest, most intimate,
most fulfilling reality.

 Notes to Self is an inspiring and invaluable “manual on Surrender” for anyone on the pathless path to true Self-Realization.

Christy was born in the US to Christian missionary parents who moved extensively in the US and abroad throughout her childhood. She spent the ages of four to twelve living with her family in the Bethlehem and Jerusalem areas of the Holy Land. There she had exposure to the words and parables of Jesus and felt some of the earliest stirrings of Self.

Over the years, Christy recognized the same familiar stirrings of Truth in the words of Gautama Buddha and other enlightened masters, as well as in the words and presence of her spiritual teacher, Victor. Now, she realizes the availability of this Truth within herself and within all beings.

Christy enjoys writing, spontaneous dancing, gazing,sitting and active meditations and other catalysts into “no-mind.” She and her husband are world travelers. They have a three-year-old son who now joins them in their adventuring. Their home base is in the mountain town of Pai, Thailand.
