Setting & Plot
Some Quotes from Nexus:
I need to start listening to my body again, to my heart’s deepest feelings, my higher guidance, and then I’ll know my way, without any fear for what might happen. — Sarah McMaster
To say “I can’t” is an illusion, but to believe “I’ll try” is to recognize you have no limit — Sunny

The mystic journey is all about discovering your heart in ever deepening ways. — Celeste
You can’t always change the past but the future can be built on wisdom gained from past experience. — Muriel
Just as clouds drift by casting shadows upon the ground, similarly negative emotions have their moment when they cast an oppressive shadow on your perception. — Chandra Singh
The impossible is possible. I grasp this but believing and truly knowing is different than surface understanding. — Logan Andrews
It’s impossible to end all suffering, still we can reflect on it and realize that within suffering, the seed of compassion can be planted so long as we overcome our doubts, cynicism and inaction. — Chandra Singh
Our Journey as Writers:
Our journey of writing “Nexus” began during a seminar led by Richard G. Green. The seminar was about Native story-telling and it was open to the public. During the seminar, Richard talked about the importance of finding your voice and how writing can be therapeutic. What really got us was when he described how writers have an innate curiosity about the world and people around them.
While at a bus stop, most people would be too busy with their own concerns and not care to survey others. But a writer would be engrossed by everyone waiting for the bus. She would create a whole story about each person from just watching them. We felt that Richard was describing us!
He then proceeded to say that most writers are in denial of the fact that they are writers. During the break, 6’2″ Richard towered over 5’2″ Deborah and firmly asked: “Are you a writer?”
She answered “yes” and both authors felt a rush of energy from exploring the craft of writing. We had bought Richard’s book on writing, The Writing Experience, an Iroquois guide to written storytelling and used it as our guide to the fascinating world of story-telling………And that’s how our journey began as writers and it led to “Nexus.”
Why did we write Nexus?
Evolution of human history has focused outwardly, since satisfaction of physiological needs had been paramount. We have with technology and science learned how to control many aspects of the outer world. What remains as part of human transformation is the inner journey. This is precisely what Nexus is all about.
It is a movement from the outer shell of mental agitation to a quiet place of peace within. It is this place that great spiritual leaders, both ancient and modern, accessed for both inspiration and personal transformation.
We wanted to share with readers a way to create personal transformation & empowerment in our life through the journey of each person in the book. The transformation for each person is different involving meditation exercises, yoga, psychological understanding, spiritual insights and vivid experiences.
Why Should I Read Nexus?
Nexus presents a holistic vision and an organic process of transformation derived from psychological, spiritual and social development of each individual in the story. It offers a unique story where personal pain is experientially transformed into a spiritual vision of wholeness. Through the connection to the source, the Nexus, we can empower ourselves and others.
