Overview

This is an all-encompassing collection of seven hand-written journals Milligan meticulously scribed on each journey to S.E. Asia; primarily within the golden country of Thailand. Milligan masterfully weaves his experiences into the connection between nature and humanity --- proving the clear, definitive link within all living things upon this earth and beyond into the vast universe. As with his previous works, Milligan pours out his heart, spilling its entire content and meaning into every word. Amid his many recollections and recantations of events in Thailand; the greater purpose underlying Milligan's prose is bestowing within readers a true understanding of why they are in this world ... Who we are as a species --- the inspiration and culmination of which Milligan found within the Kingdom of Thailand; "A most enchanting country." Within this collection of journals, Milligan eloquently describes what is possible when showing compassion for one another and nature itself.

Gregg Tyler Milligan is one of the most thought-provoking writers of the 21st century, infl uencing a much-needed revolution against abuse of {any} kind. A pioneer nationally and internationally, Milligan is among the first to incorporate a new model approach of Education + Compassion = Wisdom in his writing style, expanding the reader's view with a wellspring of solutions centered on humanity and sustainability. His works apply across countless industries, beckoning the rise of empathy --- a distinctly global philosophy for a better future. Milligan holds multiple degrees; with five books in print, his works continue to reach readers since publishing A Beautiful World in 2009 (translated into the Thai Language as of June 2015). Along with many lectures and workshops delivered in the US, Milligan has been a guest lecturer at Thammasat University, Bangkok and Mahasarakham University, Maha Sarakham City, Isaan. He has also volunteered with The Mirror Foundation, Rangsit.

Rarely do you get such a honest, raw and loving view of humanity, unless you experience it for yourself, looking directly at it. But, really, how often do we do that? Why don't more people write books like this? I think everyone feels alone and afraid, but even after a terribly abusive childhood, how can the author write something so truthful that is also beautiful. Seeing this beautiful world through the author's eyes is a meditative experience that makes me feel more human, like I'm a part of something greater, even through I'm so confused and fragile. The author seems to just describe everything the way that it actually is. No sensationalism. Everything is actually simple. I'm thankful for knowing about this hidden gem. I've never read anything else that's so free from the standard social narrative of 'Us' vs. 'Them'. I feel a part of our world if I really let this book sink in.

I highly recommend this book. It is focused on compassion - reflected in in hearts across the world. This book makes you feel GOOD after reading each and every page. I just love it and so did my book club. I also found it quite educational! It opened my eyes to Thailand and its people - regardless of how many thousands of miles are between us and how different we may think we are - that we are all connected. And it highlights the amazing focus that the Eastern cultures have on compassion -which we can definitely learn from in the West. You literally FEEL the beauty of the Thai people and the surroundings - the cities, countryside, jungles, mountains, rivers, temples - as you walk beside the author on his travels. You will read this book and feel part of the whole of humanity and nature - it transports you in mind and spirit. Mr. Milligan is a GIFTED author, and I don't say that lightly. You will walk away with a completely different understanding of the world and your place in it - exemplified through the travels of the author to a land rich in compassion, wisdom and beauty - awakening your own senses and calling to your better angel to rise. Keep writing, Mr. Milligan! The world needs your insight and education to strengthen ourselves and turn the tide back to humanity.
