Animating Principle


ISBN: N/A SKU: N/A Categories: ,

My book questions whether or not the main character, Jim, can sin against what he believes in and still pass into heaven’s gates.

Wealthy yet sad through his entire life, Jim has his whole life stolen from him as he loses his loved one. He asks, “will revenge somehow make my life better? Will killing another human being who may or may not be guilty show how I am happy exploring the vastness of heaven?”

The book covers a range of topics – dreams, desires, law, and order. What should we do with criminals? Individual changes and culture can influence how a person feels. Pure love is growing with Jim and Aliccia, and because of that, they change. This is the story of their entire lives, how their future and pasts altered.

For many years I suffered from agony throughout my life. My daughter has autism. She will have a full life. But she’ll never know some of the pleasures that normal people experience. I can hardly wait to see her in heaven.I believe God knows all. Man sins by indulging in unorthodox pleasures. There is no hiding from God.

In the novel, the character Jim realizes this as well. He moves from Fargo, North Dakota, to Minneapolis and falls in love with Allicia. She has a bad past that ultimately claims her life, and his revenge on her killer becomes his ultimate sin. Will he go to heaven? I have also had a near-death experience. A certain injury almost cost me my life.

Finally, I used to believe in evolution. Does it really reveal all? Our earth is in space and time, which never ends. When we die, we go beyond matter. Our souls will join space and time – forever. That is truly my belief.
