"Keep only what is worth carrying on your back. Leave, and let me guide you."- Adam
Divine wisdom or rantings of a lunatic?
Day 182 – From working for the rich and famous to living in a shack. I'm exactly where I belong. Why? Because what fool believes the ramblings of an inner voice with the name Adam who promises to put an end to all his problems and Guide him to the unimaginable – I do.
Since Adam's command to leave and only keep what I could carry on my back, a work exchange in the Northern California mountains has been a training ground. There are no spas, temples, glorious meals, or praying. I'm pissing myself at night because it's too cold, wearing wet clothes, and lugging logs on my back. When God wants you to wake up, you're not showered with wine and eucalyptus, you're kicked out on the street and told to have Absolute Faith. I've discovered humility in minimalism. I've been shown the future of our world. I've faced every dark corner of my spirit and have risen to find my-Self.
Now, as I look back over the pages of my journals, this is no longer my story. This is about someone whose life was spun into a chaotic frenzy of highs and lows fueled by layers of untruths. And, that guy is long gone.
Whatever Adam is, or isn't, the unworldly Guidance that flows through my fingers has helped me reclaim the man I knew existed all along – the king, the warrior, the prophet. But, didn't I mention? Adam is an asshole. Six months later, I find out this was all a setup and… even the benevolent doesn't do anything for free.

About the Author
David Peter Kiaurakis was born in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, on Mother’s Day in 1972. As a child he studied piano, winning competitions and a scholarship. His parents realized David’s education would be better suited by enrolling him in a private high school where he could explore studies in literature, music, and religion.
Following a brief stint in college, David worked as an assistant to a Cook County Commissioner where he developed an interest in politics and government. His natural ability to connect with people led him to the campaign trail where he quickly realized the Universe had different plans for him. In 2001, after a devastating election loss, David interviewed with a temp agency hoping to find a new path. Ten minutes later, he was offered an opportunity to work at Harpo Studios, Home of The Oprah Winfrey Show, in Chicago. A decade later, David found himself designing the offices of one of the most famous women in the world. After relocating to West Hollywood, CA, David launched a project management business with clients such as The Oprah Winfrey Network, Vice Media, and many others.
In September 2016, David began a new journey down a path no one saw coming.
With the debut of Heart Guided Life, Walking with Adam, David seeks to help readers understand the relationship between their physical self and their spiritual Self, and the importance of bringing the two halves together. Most of us tend to think of our inner voice as a stream of nonsensical ramblings that is often our own judge, jury, and executioner. But, in a Heart Guided Life, Walking with Adam, readers are tempted to consider the possibility of reaching infinite wisdom by connecting with their True Self.
David serves on the Board of Mindfulness Leader, NFP, a Chicago based charity focused on teaching youth emotional stability and mindfulness practices so they can be the best versions of themselves.
