From The Author Al Chavies:
“I’m speaking to everyone in this book, because everyone wants to know THE MEANING OF LIFE. I’m speaking to the dope fiend and dope dealer on the corner; the prostitute on the block or in the club; as well as the ministers, priests and imams in the pulpit.
“I’m speaking to the politicians in Washington, DC. I’m speaking to the gang-bangers and their crews, as well as those of society who follow the rules. I’m speaking to the students in universities and schools as well as those who may be looked upon as fools…Read on!
“What I say may not be for everybody, but there is something in it for all.”-The Author. Peace!
“Over the years, I have collaborated with many fine writers, both published and unpublished. Many have stimulated and roused me to express what I have learned. Others, who are friends and family, have given me tangible support and advise during the course of my life that led up to writing this book.” (pg. v-Acknowledgements)
EXERPT FROM CHAPTER ONE:LEARN TO CONTROL YOURSELF BEFORE TRYI NG TO CONTROL OTHERS.(Uncle Yah Yah: 21st Century man of Wisdom)
“In order to reach the goals of inner peace, happiness and success, we must employ the SCIENCE OF SUPREME DISCILINE. My mentor says, “EVERYTHING PROCEEDS THROUGH GRADUATION AND DEVELOPMENT.” As he did for me, I suggest to you that you look up and study those two key words, GRADUATION and DEVELOPMENT and learn how to improve yourself. When you understand graduation and development, you realize that you don’t accomplish success in anything by jumping from step one (1)
to step seven (7). In our growth and development, going from step one (1) to step two (2) and from step two (2) to step three (3) and so on to step seven (7) makes our strive to reach perfection, or at least success, inevitable.” (pg. 1)
“My big take away is this: In our fast-paced lives, we are surrounded by, and caught up in, worldliness, ego and negativity, thus, turning our lives or thought process into an uncontrollable whirlwind. Bro. Chavies reacquaints us, or turns our focus back to, the spiritual and makes us conscious of what the Creator wants us to do. He exhorts us to constantly be tuned in, listen to, and trust our inner voice, striking down our ego which prevents us from hearing and obeying our inner voice (guidance).” (Quote from:Wahida Clark-New York Times Best Seller of Thug Series, Payback Series and Golden Hustler Series-pg.vii,Prologue)
My book is available on: Amazon.com-The Meaning of Life-Albert Chavies-
I leave you with a quote from Chapter 8 entitled: “THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE ARE:WHAT YOU KNOW, WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, PRAYER AND YOUR WOMAN.”
“In the world of unbalance, the true value of the woman has been misplaced. This friction between man and woman is causing the family structure to break down, and the future that suffers is the children. I’ll be speaking on the children in the next chapter. You see, the child is losing his or her chance to maintain the balance they had when they were born, because their parents took it away due to living other than the way the Creator intended (Divine Law: see Chapter 6).”
PEACE! PEACE! & LOVE!
