TRUST IN THE PROCESS. BELIEVE IN THE OUTCOME

 

This new book represents the logical continuation of my spiritual work. I wrote it in much the same manner as my previous, best-selling motivational and inspirational manual... 

THE BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE® 

...by painstakingly researching and verifying every last fact, every little detail and every single claim, utilizing only the most reputable of sources.

 

It is not intended to be a treatise on the attainment of spiritual knowledge nor a guide to any particular spiritual practice.

Consider it to be but another step on the path of your journey.

To trust in the process means to know and have faith that there is a divine plan moving through you and your life in any moment. To have faith is to have deep sense of trust in what cannot be seen. Proof is not needed. Rather, it is an inner sense of knowing that guides you.

To trust in the process, wholly and completely, is to not need to know what is unfolding or why...

but to simply be here in the present to experience it.

Even if you cannot understand what is unfolding right now, trust that the reason that this is happening is because circumstances are rearranging themselves for your higher good.

THE REGIONAL RECIPES OF TERRA D'AMORE

la regione di puglia

This is the long-awaited second book of the Regional Recipes of Terra d’Amore series. We present...the region of Puglia.

Puglia is famous for its cucina povera, the kitchen of the poor. Historically, it was one of the poorest regions in Italy. People had to keep their meals simple and affordable. That was the defining essence of Apulian cuisine and remains so to this day.

But  much has changed over the centuries. Though no longer the land of the poor, Pugliese cuisine still retains all the characteristics of cucina povera. The emphasis is now on simplicity...100% fresh, locally grown ingredients.

A land of farmers and fishermen, Puglia has vegetables, fruit, fish and seafood at the core of its cooking. Puglia is one of the biggest durum wheat producers in the country. This is why Puglia is particularly famous for its unique types of bread and pasta.

We are now happy to share with you our ultimate guide to the best food and recipes from the region of Puglia!

THE CRAFT OF WRITING

an art unto itself

Anyone who wants to write a book can, in fact, write it!

 

But it takes special skills and unique abilities to create content and stories as well as characters that capture and hold the interest and emotions of readers.

 

These skills (what we call the craft) are what we discuss at great length in this informative text book.

There are two very distinct yet equally important elements of the writing process...

First, there is the art of writing. Second, there is the craft.

 

One can be taught. The other cannot.

 

This book is dedicated to teaching the one that can be!

It is the art of writing that cannot be taught. No one can give another the soul of an artist, the sensibility of a writer or the passion to put words down on paper. It is a skill…

 

one that can be developed only if the seed already exists within you.

PIZZA

the art of making authentic italian pizza

Pizza has been a staple of Italian heritage and culture dating back to the 16th century. it has permeated the world, interpreted and served in a variety of ways and enjoyed by nearly everyone. But, there is pizza...

 

and then there is genuine and authentic Italian pizza.

Here in Italy, we have mandatory ingredients, standard assembly techniques and most of all, required baking methods.

 

The crust of authentic Italian pizza is one of the most important components of the meal. It is traditionally thin but has a fluffy consistency. Within the crust lies the characteristic flavor and exceptional texture found solely in Italian pizza.

We place a great deal of importance on the amount of lievito fresco (fresh yeast) we use. a carefully weighed blend of three different types of farina (flour)  is used to concoct the perfect impasto (dough). We expertly hand-stretch the dough in a process known as impastare (kneading) and then we bake it at extremely high temperatures in a wood-fired oven to achieve that impeccable finished quality.

This book teaches you the time-honored process of making genuine and authentic Italian pizza. We provide more than fifty very specific, very authentic and very delicious regional pizza recipes.

SURVIVING

the worst year of my life

It's hard to remember a year worse than 2020. It began with all eyes focused on Italy. A tiny organism, one originated in a laboratory in Wuhan China, began to wreak havoc everywhere we turned.

 

Lockdowns. Restrictions. Green passes. Mandates proliferated....

 

But was any of it really necessary?

nearly 7,000,000 people worldwide lost their lives. millions more were left suffering from the grief of forced isolation. No one has gone untouched by hardship and change.

 

Lives  disrupted. Jobs lost. Businesses closed.  educations disrupted. And now we are witnessing an ever-expanding death toll, brought about by horrible reactions to an untested, unsafe vaccine...one that we were told would stop this contagion.

Today, we are doing the best we can. But it is difficult to feel safe or that our efforts are good enough. 

 

as we did in THE BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE, in this book we take a daily approach to dealing with stress, anxiety and fear through valuable lessons learned and powerful positive affirmations recited.

Bad years will always come along. The resiliency you learn from recovering from your “worst year” will help you cope with them.

STARDUST

the interconnectedness of all things

Everything in the universe, from the smallest subatomic particle to the largest galaxy, is connected in some way...

 

a part of a larger, interconnected system.

 

Interconnectedness is not just a philosophical concept. It is also supported by science. The interconnectedness of all things also has a spiritual dimension. Many spiritual traditions see everything as interconnected and recognize that our actions and our choices have an impact on the world around us.

Interconnectedness is not just something that happens in the universe. It also can be applied to our personal lives. Understanding that everything is interconnected can help us live with more compassion, empathy, and understanding. It reminds us that our choices and actions affect not only ourselves but also those around us...

 

even those who will come after us.

 

By recognizing that we are all part of the same web of life, we can make better choices that benefit not only ourselves but also others.

In this book, we will delve into the meaning of interconnectedness and explore how it can help us live more meaningful, fulfilling lives.

 

CIBO DI STRADA

italian street food

In Italy, eating is a ritual...

 

one that lasts from morning to night!

 

Much of what we partake is eaten outside the home, on the streets. Most of what is eaten is snack food, or merende.

Street foods today are sold everywhere...from restaurants, kiosks, market stands and stalls, and even truks that look like ice-cream vans.

 

The range of street foods consumed now in Italy is vast and, naturally, differs from region to region.

Street food across Italy is a true testament to the resourcefulness, innovation and passion Italians from all walks of life have when it comes to food.

 

The dishes are humble, simple...

 

packed with heat, intensity, and big flavors.

This unique cookbook dives deeply into the history and recipes of Cibo di Strada...

THE AUTOMATIC MAN

you only think you are in control

The subconscious mind is the part of the human mind that is not in a state of awareness. but it is an extremely powerful and very influential element of our thinking and acting behaviors. It quite literally is in control of everything we do...

 

It holds all our memories.

It generates all our thoughts

It activates all our senses.

It is the storehouse of everything that has ever happened to us, good or bad.

 

It formulates our beliefs.

It triggers our habits.

It influences how we react to situations and circumstances.

It perceives the world and thus creates our reality.

In this book you will learn to re.program your subconscious mind by seeding it with positive thoughts, suppressing the negative, destructive ones that are always at the surface and influence your choices and decisions.

 

My goal is  open your eyes to a brand new, and much more realistic view of the world and your place in it.

 

We may think we are in charge...but we are not!

 

STAY TUNED FOR MORE...
