Introduction

The Cube
is an imagination game —
and more.

In the summer of 1991,
playing it was suddenly the rage
in the coffeehouses of Eastern Europe.
Where had it come from?
No one knows.

Some think The Cube may be
an ancient Sufi teaching riddle.
Lost for centuries, it reappears
in times and places where the soul most needs
to know itself.

Now, it is here.


The warning
on page 17 of this book
protects the power of The Cube —
like a genie in a bottle.
If you open it at the right time,
you will receive rich gifts
of insight and surprise.

But open it too soon,
and the power flies away.

For maximum fun and enlightenment,
do not read past page 17
until you have played the game!
Do not reveal the secret
to those who have not yet played the game!

This book is the perfect little place to start really looking into YOURSELF. It reveals you in a way that strips away all pretense and self delusion. It would be a wonderful way to get to know someone else more intimately and let them get to know you. With results from celebrities and authors, it is sure to be a hit at dinner parties. Makes a great hostess gift or small gift for that special someone. The book is small, but the meaning is HUGE. Also great for those that enjoy journaling.

Most people believe that once they reveal the secret that they will never be able to do so again. But the truth is, the secret always changes. I have had this book for many years and on each occasion that I pick it up and play the game - it shows me something new about myself. This book is only for those who are not threatened by their inner self. It's also a great party book and can be an icebreaker for new meetings. But be sure to keep it away from those who are suspicious of everything - they will not enjoy or understand it!

I have had this book for six years. Everyone I have come across has loved it. Especially great for a small party. You learn so much about yourself and others. You won't ever lack conversation with this book!
