I Am Change, a book of prose and poetry by David Best, is a pleasure to read. It combines warm, personal experiences and compelling true life drama with spiritual guidance toward acceptance of everything that this universe has to offer us, without labeling it as bad or good. Its tone is welcoming and charismatic. It has a quality of modesty which encourages the reader to consider the ideas presented by
someone who does not exalt himself but simply and eloquently tells what he has experienced and learned. The author’s poetry has a bright, captivating quality, and yet at the same time, it expresses some powerful truths about birth, life, death and the essential nature of all three as forms of change. The way the poetry is interspersed with the prose of I Am Change is illuminating. The two different forms of communication enhance and intensify each other. Together they provide a unique approach to sharing the author's heartfelt message of hope and change! A wonderful philosophy underlies this story, the poetry, and the message of the book which seems upon retrospect to be the only effective and reasonable way of living: to understand that there is an eternal force that brings us to growth through change, in ways that we may not always comprehend at first. I Am Change is an inspiring work of guidance and motivation. We need positive thoughts and affirmations in this life. There are many good people in the world, and they can use support and encouragement from every source to fulfill their potential.
Mr. Best’s ability through his writing to help readers reach that stage of perception is a great gift to all those who can open their minds and hearts to receiving it!
