Our old world is collapsing with no one seeming to be able to stop the disaster. Centuries of efforts, sacrifices and history are diluted in our hands...; without heroes, without leaders or values that resist ...; in the hands of some "authorities" who, installed behind the high walls of their palaces, deepen us with their "absence" every day more in the tragedy...Why don't we react? Where are our convictions, our certainties..., our gallantry...? Why have we become resigned fatalists? Before, proud of our freedoms and rights, today, cowed, scared and paralyzed; even those who still have enough.Why? What is happening to us? Why are we not knowing what to do...?We are like this, because we expect someone, external to us (a sage, a teacher, a guru, a visionary, a psychologist, a sociologist or a politician, an enlightened person, a savior, an 'iron surgeon', a 'revolutionary', or whoever) gives us the "solution", without realizing that the only solution is found within us. However, we have not been taught how to enter ourselves, and find it...It is as if we were sailing in the middle of a terrible storm and the "engine" of our boat had stopped working and, without "starting", we were at the mercy of the hurricane-force winds and the chaotic waves, without knowing how to repair it!That is the goal of this book: to be like a "shop manual", and some basic "tools", to "open the engine", recondition it and start it again... and thus be able to steer safely through the storm.
