The Finding of the Third Eye

By Vera Stanley Alder

This book has literally changed my life. I went from existing in everyday life unaware of anything that influenced my thoughts, actions, or potential future to being conscious of the various influences that make up the eternal reality of our inner beings. This book has opened up my mind to a world of limitless potential that continues to amaze me as I struggle and strike for each new achievement. My latest being handpicked to partake in the first cohort of the Yale Prison Education Initiative, in which I got an A- in Reading and Writing the Modern Essay and B+ in American Lit. Although I am incarcerated, this book has taught me that life is a beautiful journey.
