After a year of travels followed by three years of writing and editing, the story emerges of a yearning seeker who trades safety and the American Dream for fearlessness and a new way of living. Worn from the paradigm of a 9-5 office job, an early marriage, and a lack of spiritual connectedness, the author’s world is turned upside-down after an arrest, a divorce, and leaving the only career he knows in search of something more.
As a new paradigm of connecting with himself, his surroundings, and his experience emerges, the writer sets out on a quest to circle the planet, piecing together an around-the-world path with a series of one-way flights and hosts he finds online, who graciously offer nights on their couches to him for free. In the process, he discovers an efficient and groundbreaking method of cheap travel with technology and mindfulness, but more importantly, discovers how intention and unconditional love makes the world go 'round.
In a story that has been called the guy's version of Eat, Pray, Love, the author crafts the voice of a unique soul. He lives the kinds of Hunter S Thompson-esque adventures that some guys dream of, but always stays connected to his higher self as he treads the jagged line between unadulterated pleasure and the greatest good of the universe. Time after time, he illustrates how ‘right thought’ and ‘good vibrations’ lead to positive experiences, but also shows that when he disregards the teachings, he is led into trouble. The motion of non-stop travel around the world manifests these illustrations in rapid succession as the author discovers the ways in which he is never the victim of circumstance, but instead the creator of circumstances.
As the author lays a crystal grid by gifting quartz crystals to his hosts and develops deep relationships with each character, he discovers the secrets of the universe through experience. A strong persistence, an intention for the greatest good, and an awareness that ‘the universe provides’ combine to create a world in the physical reality that some think can only exist in a dream. A realization unfolds that a ‘fictional’ intention of the mind can be a tool to create the reality of ‘non-fiction,’ and this discovery unlocks a door that opens to infinity.
Spin the World Around is an inspirational tale. May it unlock the minds of some still stuck in old paradigms, waiting to spin their own world around.
