ABOUT THE AUTHOR
JERRY A. MARZINSKY
Not only is Jerry Marzinsky a licensed mental health practitioner, specializing in psychiatric care, he is a licensed pilot and SCUBA diver. He is also an avid explorer of nature and things that go bump in the night.
In the book The Wheel of Time by Carlos Castaneda, don Juan Matus is quoted as saying: “To walk the full length of a path that one truly loves, one needs the passion, courage, imagination, vigilance, discipline, self-awareness, grace, strength, resourcefulness, efficiency, patience, adaptability, and humbleness of a navigator. […] This is the spirit of the navigator, the being who makes the continuous commitment to travel the path of awareness every moment. The struggle of the navigator is not with one’s fellow men, nor is it with oneself, and it’s ultimately not a struggle. Rather, it is acquiescence to the energetic currents of the sea of awareness in the universe.”
This idea is the very nature of the author which prompted him to write down his findings in this book, knowing what he found flies in the face of established thought in the field of psychiatry.
