Title: A Whisper of Thoughts: about Love, Life and Self-Awareness
Author: Annelies George
Publisher: BI Publishing
On Tour: November 11 - January 31
Annelies George is the author of the Jessie Golden Earth Series. In this fiction saga she aims to pass a strong message among other topics about the current situation in the world and the connection with the increasing climate changes. When writing the second book in the series, Darkness and Light, she started to reflect on something that she wrote. This led to the Loveable Light initiative. On her Facebook Page she started to post videos and thoughts about things that matter to her (www.facebook.com/anneliesgeorgeauthor). On a July Sunday morning she got the idea to bundle those in a small booklet and to add other thoughts that she has not yet posted illustrated with pictures that are partly a result of the photo shoots she does on a regular basis to support her activities with Vincent Kos, a Dutch photographer. The remainder is a random collection of pictures she made herself.
She believes that our personality is the result of our education, our free will and our own choices, as well as the love we discover in our own heart. Therefore, she dedicated this booklet to her parents, who always loved and supported her, even if her lifestyle wasn’t exactly what they had in mind.
About Loveable Light
“The world is already ruined, what can I do about it, as just one individual?” Dutch author Annelies George often heard around her. Looking at the news was not cheering her up either, watching another attack, war or murder with many victims. However, the saying “improve the world and start with yourself” still applies.
When writing the second novel, Darkness and Light, she was actually led to reflect on something she had written. In chapter 23 the leading character of the story is studying a speech spoken by a psychic in trance. It states that the present look and feel of the world is in fact determined by all of us. It is a true sum total of our positive and negative actions. Filtered through a funnel, unfortunately the outcome is negative.
“Why is that?” she wondered. The action of one person can affect those of another; in essence it’s very easy to start a “snowball effect”, also confirmed by quantum physics.
Historically, it works like a charm if someone has a very bad, almost evil idea. Once launched, it will spread like wildfire. Take Hitler as an example. In no time almost the entire nation was supporting his philosophy and standing behind him, which had far-reaching consequences.
An idea was born and Loveable Light a fact! She truly hopes that the snowball effect targeting evil and very bad practices will do the same when the intention is good and full of love. Basically it’s very simple. First start loving yourself. It really doesn’t matter who or what you are, as a human being you are unique with your own specific wonderful talents; someone to love, but also a person who can give love to others.
You are in fact Loveable Light’s very soul. Just start wondering what you could do as an individual to give some more love to this world, shining your light of positive energy in your everyday life. It’s the little touches that make the difference. And we need to start somewhere to enable a snow ball effect in due course. Each deed of love, no matter how small, may contribute to a better more pleasant living environment.
