About the Book

From a Long Way is the story of life’s outcomes that can be explained with the benefit of hindsight. Life in the now seems confused and appears to be influenced by factors out of our control. It looks like a series of surprises and accidents delivered to us from outside us and not within. It is a series of luck—good or bad—rather than a craft woven skillfully and deliberately toward a desired outcome, but our lives hardly surprise us. Even though I continue to live, the story of my life continues to show that we are influenced from within by the rationale we have embraced through our exposure to the world and the people of the world. Indeed, it is not what we go through that throws out a bad outcome but the meaning our minds attached to it. All things can work together for our good so that there are no regrets. This is the story of the lessons of my life so far, which makes me approach my future with eager anticipation.
