Anything Is Possible; A Tale of ÆSOP

Anything Is Possible, Illustrated edition, an original novel by Thomas Bähler is a thought-provoking modern treasure, a fascinating fictional account of the life of the famed creator of Aesop’s Fables, a brilliant storyteller and eternal optimist who lived around 600 BCE.

The life of the great philosopher and teacher Æsop is explored for the first time ever in a brilliantly crafted historical fiction illuminated by fifty full page illustrations .

The novel begins with Aesop’s birth as a slave, covers his long quest for freedom and examines his service to the richest and most powerful man in the world.

Many would be surprised to know that Æsop, an enduring philosopher in the modern world, was born a slave. Yet, later in life, he served as Ambassador to the wealthiest King in ancient history, simply with a fierce belief in his own potential, and the ever-stalwart laws of reality…anything is possible.

Today, Æsop and his fables are quoted an estimated one million times daily, across the globe. Not bad for someone who lived 2600 years ago.

Written with the same simple genius as its central protagonist, in Anything Is Possible, the reader discovers the meaning of Æsop’s profound lessons on his/her own… subsequently, you, the reader, own these lessons, forever.

Change requires your permission.
Are you ready to BE POSSIBLE?

If this man, born a slave in 620 BC, can still inspire the world with his message in the year 2013… what does that mean YOU can do?

POSSIBILITY AWAITS…

We are all here to serve.

We are all here to BE POSSIBLE.

“A thought provoking exploration of freedom. It will inspire anyone who has ever dreamed of a better life.” – Quincy Jones

Talks About How You Can Learn to Use the Power of Visioning, Massive Action, Feng Shui and Dowsing to Change Your Life.

Feng Shui and Quantum Energy Master Marie Diamond sat down with me to talk about how we can use Feng Shui principles to get more success in abundance, health and relationships.

Marie also went over dowsing techniques used to clear negative energy and find positive energy.

Marie and I met each other while working on sustainable projects to help get food, water, education and self esteem to the needy in Africa and other countries. I know her as a great humanitarian who really cares about the world and the people she works with.

I am no guru about this stuff and do not know how or if it works, but I believe that if you want to know about these practices you must go to the Masters and Marie Diamond has been known as a Master internationally for many years.  Here is your chance to listen to one of the worlds best.- JW

Her clients include A-list celebrities in film and music, top selling writers, leaders from Fortune 500 companies, and governments.

The internationally acclaimed author, teacher, consultant, and motivational speaker brings her wisdom and counsel to a wide audience through her seminars, personal appearances on TV and radio, tele-classes, coaching, and products.

Born in Belgium, and now living between the United States and France, Marie was a successful lawyer before shifting her focus to the Laws of the Universe.

The Law of Attraction and the Laws of the Universe operate the same for everyone. Thoughts have substance, and we manifest those things that occupy our thought lives. We have the power to change our circumstances.

Marie has known that success, physical and emotional well-being, happy relationships, and spiritual wisdom are affected by our environment. Proper guidance of universal energy is essential to maximizing our experience on Earth.

I Want To Be Me

A Touching New Film at the Possible Futures Film Contest – Has Won The Peoples Choice Award in the Human Fullfillment Catagory!

Watch it Now

“I Want To Be Me”, is a short film, less than 3 minutes long, written and directed by Lauren Selman and produced by Pina De Rosa, and is about amplifying the voice of our children and reminding us that the future depends on being ourselves and following our dreams. You know it’s up to you, what do you want to be?

Here is an excerpt from the congratulations letter sent to Pina:

How the audience received the film. In the words of the Project Manager:

“This evening, at the 2011 Possible Futures Film Contest Awards Ceremony it was announced on stage followed by a second screening of your wonderfully meaningful film, that I Want To Be Me was the winner of the People Choice Award in your submitting category of Human Fulfillment !! (and btw  – Jon Love announced this category and your film winning) There was such joy in the air as your film completed its dual screening this evening in front of a fully packed theatre. It was amazing to see this truly human connection about living a live of individuality on the large screen. (I’ve been screening it on my laptop – and I really smiled from ear to ear this evening for you) Nice work!

It has been an honor to watch people enjoy your work on film. Thank you for holding the world so preciously in this tale. It was wonderful having your film be a part of the first annual Contest and hope you will consider submitting in 2012.”

I recently met Pina De Rosa through a good friend. I got a chance to spend a little time with her and hear her story and some of the projects she had done and others she was working on.

Even if you do not want to vote, go watch the it. – JW
