Feel clarity to be yourself to take effective actions and decisions. Ready? #BeFriendurMind is about how to choose to live one's life. The book was written in an imagination of you walking with me as I was discovering self-truth and trust. For the past 3 years, my travels have been an experiential education practicing the reminders in this world. Through my wanderings, I documented the self, using self-inquiry to observe the thoughts, feelings and contemplated on the spiritual practice with artistic photography and drawings for self-expression, which are shared in the book. The book is divided in four sections. It begins with a brief introduction on how my journey began. The second section focuses on various relationships related to the value of a spiritual practice. The third section of this book is divided into 59 bite-size personal reflections with corresponding travel photos along with 59 reminders for daily practice to set your intention and contemplation for the day. Finally, I share information regarding #BeFriendurMind online support programs and workshops to act as an extra support and re-enforce the practice.
