By the time you are less than halfway through this little book, we think thats how it will be with you. These pages have some tremendous things to say (not original, but mostly forgotten—the authors contribution being but a mite to the treasury), things that vitally affect you today, tomorrow and forever. Whats more, we can even guarantee doing something about those yesterdays you would gladly forget.

Impossible? Read and see.An hour with a book would have brought to his mindThe secret it took him a whole year to find,The facts that he learned at enormous expenseWere all on a library shelf to commence.How to see from lifes cul-de-sacs into infinity, a joyous infinity—thats the theme of this book. We offer you here Aladdins lamp, Ali Babas cave, Treasure Island, the Holy Grail, the Golden Fleece, the Apple of Hercules, Klondikes goldfields, the mystic philosophers stone that could turn common metal into gold, and the Thread of Adrienne which showed the path through the labyrinth to the light.A kaleidoscope suggests all of these.

Bits of colored glass- thats what one sees when looking through a kaleidoscope. But lo, as you turn the cylinder, symmetrical patterns of wonder appear. Instead of chaos, there is beauty. Can it be that way with life? We each wander over lifes battlefields and find it littered with the dead and the dying. We too are wounded and are desperately trying to find the answer to the question as to whether the disparate fragments of our experience have been projected by a universe of blind chance, or whether there is some pattern to it all.

We do know that for some weary fighters, the battlefield has ultimately become the place of vision. They learned to see further through a tear than through a telescope. Can we learn that too?Does not everything depend on how we turn the cylinder of vision? You have heard often of the two men who looked out of prison bars—one saw mud and the other stars. Two boys belonging to the same family can construe life so differently. One sees mainly the sordid and the sorrowful, while the other working by his own private compass is guided by shining orbed idealism. Its gleam transforms for him all that is dark or dingy and enables him to labor on, whatever the discouragements.Not only beauty, but truth is in the eye of the beholder.

We habitually see with the eye and not through it. What is already present in the mind and heart determines what we make of all around us. Experience is not what happens to us, but what we do with what happens to us. Some, like Admiral Nelson, view all around them with their glass eye and misinterpret reality.

Others choose to wonder rather than worry when their twist of lifes kaleidoscope yields surprising and joyous patterns.Most of us admit to being cross and crooked at times under the bludgeoning of our days. Does not life seem cross with us? Does not contradiction and ambiguity characterize much of what happens to us?

The inner eye needs a map of Treasure Island, an Aladdins lamp for rubbing, an Ali Babas cave for entering—a magic kaleidoscope which will make ordinary things extraordinary, common things glorious, cruel things kind and bewildering fragments a jeweled pattern.Desmond Ford (Ph.D. MSU Mich., Ph.D. Manchester, England) has lectured on lifes problems in any countries of the world over the last forty years. He is the author of a dozen books, and is well-known as the speaker over Good News Unlimited radio and TV programs.

As a College professor, he has taught thousands of students in Australia and USA.
