After quite a circuitous path, which actually deepened my own wisdom, The Black Madonna Mysterious Soul Companion is ready for release.
I was joking with a friend of mine that the impediments to publishing would be a great country western tragedy ballad, but I had no dog to die, and my Bible wasn't stolen. From fires to evictions, deaths and illnesses, bank account theft and car problems, it seems as if everything that could discourage me from publishing, happened with a ferocity that shocked those around me. At some points, I pondered if I should wear some garlic to ward off evil spirits or something. But my dedication to the message which I feel brings great context for our very turbulent time caused me to go forward.
The reasons I feel this book is important are three fold:
I think we are in an era of unprecedented challenges
There is a feeling of great unease in our transitional times
We are feeling abandoned and confused over the magnitude of evil that is present
The Black Madonna, Mysterious Soul Companion offers insights on how we can understand and meet the challenges of our age. As I have experienced all of the above issues, what has helped me personally was delving into the symbolism of the Black Madonna. My journey with this enigmatic genre brought a deep context and comfort for all the quandaries that face those of us who care for our world and her peoples. I feel my book will help others who are struggling with their faith and hope during these difficult times.
What I also found through my unexpected impediments was that one book could not completely do justice to the Black Madonna. There are several books that will follow this inaugural volume. The next edition will be on the Virgin of Guadalupe, and books on Byzantium, Africa, South America, and the Science of Black and the Cosmos will follow.
I hope you enjoy, and encourage you to help spread the word about The Black Madonna Mysterious Soul Companion to your friends, family and communities.
