Wisdom’s simple path to
perfect inner peace!
Literary statistics indicate that I have only three pages to convince you that this is a book you’ll want to continue reading and not quit. This means I only have three pages to pique your interest and to prove to you that this simple book can drastically change your life to a life filled with wisdom and perfect inner peace. That’s a tall order. There are millions of books out there by authors much more capable than me. And unfortunately of those books, most people read the first three pages and quit. So please read the next three pages slowly and try, just try recognize the profound wisdom and inner peace you will attain by simply recognizing what the evidence suggests are the FFFacts.
Anyone who sets out to write a book has a certain goal in mind. Usually that goal is an idea or concept that they want to share with others. I’m no different. It’s just that my concept was a bit more shall we say… obscure. Unfortunately, my concept was this broad, all-encompassing theory, or understanding, of what appeared to me to be what matters most in life. In other words, I believed that I had discovered and isolated what matters most in life and that if this new understanding, or wisdom, was lined up or comprehended correctly, it created a simple path to perfect inner peace. It was simply too massive, with too many tributaries, to make sense to anyone but me. I needed an angle, or perspective to narrow the perspective of the approach. Then the title of this book was discovered. The FFFacts. The three Fs in FFFacts stand for Faith, Freedom, and Finance. Now I had narrowed my scope to three things that are irrefutably important in life and my path to perfect peace could derive from there.
Before I illuminate the path, let’s explore how I got there.
Most epiphanies come as a result of some traumatic event and I’m no different. However, my first epiphany came as a result of reading one particular book: A Brief History of Time by Steven Hawking.
I had a massive bout with alcoholism and like most alcoholics, I came dangerously close to losing everything I care about the most. Once I sobered up, and other things became more important than Miller Lite, I became totally intrigued with the meaning and purpose of my life. I was compelled to learn more about things like physics, religion, and politics. Every aspect of life was intriguing so I became a book reading madman.
As I continued to sober and read, I discovered what I believe is a “simple path of wisdom to perfect inner peace”. And now I want to share that with you. So, I am no different than other book authors other than my goal at the outset was a little more grandiose. I thought my concept could save the world. Well if not save the world then at least postpone the armageddon. And honestly, in the back of my mind, I still believe the FFFacts can save the world but I’ve scaled my goal back to something much more attainable. I’ve decided to
Subtitle: Wisdom’s simple path to perfect inner peace.
This subtitle means that perfect inner peace can be achieved through a new understanding. A simple new understanding of how the world works and your role in it. A new understanding, or wisdom, is all that you need because perfect inner peace is a state of mind that requires nothing from your external world. It’s all on you. You, and only you need to “choose” peace. That sounds simple enough but rarely is that the case. The external world is fraught with strife and the discipline required to partition oneself from the chaos is difficult.
You don’t need to partition yourself. Wisdom’s path is to “Accept life on life’s terms”. I first came across this concept in reading the AA Big Book. It’s a premise that suggests that all disruption in your inner peace is a result of resisting life’s terms rather than accepting life on life’s terms. The evidence suggests that this is correct. This means that you can choose not to believe it but you can’t refute it with evidence. I use the term the “evidence suggests” a lot throughout this book. I do that because accepting life on life’s terms typically means accepting evidence that indicates something is true.
Now, if you are going to accept life on life’s terms, you need to understand, or gain “wisdom” about life. Most of us don’t necessarily care about the matters of life. We float along letting days pass by not concerning ourselves with the details of life…
