Following in the footsteps of the proverbial John Citizen who shares your societal and community interests, the author of this work chose to accompany the reader under the pen-name John Wayfarer on the basis that we are all fellow wayfarers on the long journey through life’s many incarnations. With an interest in all the main religions of the world, though a card-carrying member of none, he has long found accord with the wisdom of the Buddha and his concern for the suffering of all life. A far-from-retired octogenarian widower, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, the author spent most of his formally employed life as a newspaperman in South Africa, Namibia, and on the island of Tasmania. It was during the last-mentioned stint that, at age 34, he was blessed with a spontaneous Light experience/expansion of consciousness (no mind-altering substances involved!) that has guided his outlook on life ever since. After embarking on the drafting of a work on what he had learned from that experience and over the decades thereafter, he was interrupted by what can only be described as a Buddhist spirit entity, who referred him to the more urgent need of people suffering from turmoil or logjam in their lives. Sufferers need to seek and identify their own path out of their difficult circumstances, but, the entity stressed, they are best guided to set their feet in the right direction by the Buddha’s eightfold strategy. Hence this work. The entity did not dictate it. Like the Buddha, he only pointed the way; the effort had to come from the author himself. With this present work now (August 2018) in publication, the author became free to revert to his original project—on what he has learned from the breakthrough granted him at age 34 and over the decades since then. It will take a good couple of years to bring that work to fruition.
