“I have come to you—a keeper of the star's true tales —to speak of astonishment. . .” In 1988, A.C. Braithewaite lost on Blue Mountain his one reason for living and hopped a train, vowing never to go back. But the next year he began to perceive again a being he named Mr. Silver. By 1991, he began to roam over Blue Mountain and over the next seven falls he learned secrets whispered from the cosmos and creation. By the end of his life, he would finally learn the one secret that had been his to discover since before he was born. The Gemstone, Book One, is a tale of marvel, mystery, magic and history; of a silver-bearded sage and man's mystical age. It is a visionary and metaphysical walk across existence and full disclosure of the one thing that makes our lives meaningful. It is a story of lost love, and love found again; a storybook of one man's magical walk into eternity. It gives reply to the two inquiries of life we all have: Who am I and what is life? The simple answer? Every heart is its own prophet. Blue Mountain is where we get to think and become, not something we are going to be forever, but something we get to be for a little while. On Blue Mountain there are trails to walk and at night there are magical stars to dream on. Go ramble over the trails of Blue Mountain and use the lines of trees as your compass while wayfaring toward the light of stars. Go walk and talk with Mr. Silver for a while and when you come back, you might be changed. You should be. The Gemstone is the science of the soul and a sourcebook for wonder, from which comes all other reasonable science. This story is a message on sorrow, and why it is the missing ingredient to a higher evolution, not only of a life, but of the species.
