Our guest tonight is Author, Janet Smith Warfield. AMAZON BEST SELLER WINNER: 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Award for Best New Age Non-Fiction Thirty-five years ago, Janet Smith Warfield had an unexpected mystical experience. Words she had learned as a child in Sunday school suddenly became crystal clear. In an instant, she understood their meaning. Nothing outside her changed. Her surroundings were exactly as they had been moments before. Yet everything changed. She was suddenly looking at the same world through different eyes. As Janet struggled to put words to this mind-boggling experience, she realized that no one understood. How could she use divisive, analytical words to communicate a unifying, holistic experience? It was a question Janet wrestled with for years. Words were only illusions, dancing at a masked ball. They were only fingers pointing at the moon. They were not the moon. Nevertheless, there was a moon behind the word illusions. There was a unifying, holistic experience. There was a Human Truth Puzzle that could be put together. In fact, it had been put together, over and over, by person after person throughout history. Words were one piece of that Human Truth Puzzle. Each person who solved the Puzzle used different words to point to the solution. As lawyer, mediator, poet, author, wife, mother, and grandmother, she has become a powerful word sculptor who knows how to bring peace into troubled lives.
