Towards the Peace on Earth
The mysterious suicide of pianist Moses Molelekwa triggered a music journalist to investigate, only to find questions of the self. On a legendary farm out in Cullinan and in the presence of a Buddha soul he revisits his own trauma to heal in order to become whole in the light of love and the instinctual principles of the heart to re-enter the great collective consciousness of all that IS.
Based on the true story of a Frenchman in South Africa, the incomparable Ananda, this is a life changing story of healing and rejuvenation through celebration and initiation.
The story is told in a mystical allegory which takes the reader toward the peace in one-self and the uniting philosophy of light LOVE and life, and the empowering experience of unlimited potential, change and GOD consciousness. read more
