On February 19, 2007, I began working on a book. I called it "The Battles Of The Soul." Thoughts about writing a book crossed my mind before, but I doubted if I should. "You can't write, and you know it, focus on something else,” I said to myself. The self-deprecation prevented me from writing, then one day everything changed. I saw a vision while meditating. I do not recall what the vision was about, but I can remember the name "Battles of the Soul" entering my mind. At that moment I decided: I must write the book.
In the beginning, I wrote for myself, believing the book could help me resolve some of the personal challenges, but then I realized that my desire to be heard was too strong so my plan changed. From then on, my goal was to publish “The Battles Of The Soul.” I wrote about 278 pages and then stopped. Something did not feel right.
It took me another 7 years to figure out what was going on and to develop the final idea of the product.
Once again I felt discouraged. I did not seem to have the knowledge, the right tools, the money. But I did not let the fear stop me. Every time negativity built obstacles on my way - hope kept pushing me forward.
A strange 12 years old boy with long black hair comes to a small suburban town. He quickly becomes friends with local kids and appears to enjoy his life in the new neighborhood. Besides his unusual looks and slightly odd behavior, the boy seems no different than any other pre-teen. Nobody realizes that the newcomer is not a child at all, neither he is a human being or anything a person has ever thought of or imagined. At the beginning of the book, a reader gets a glimpse of the boy’s origin, but what does all the information mean? Who is he? And what is the purpose of his journey?
Arieh is the name of the boy in the first book. He travels through dimensions, transforms and causes transformations in other beings while fighting for his right to exist.
The story is a never-ending adventure. It not only keeps readers in suspense but also challenges their perception of reality. The book series brings up many questions about the nature of life, our acceptance of each other, about our differences, reasons behind our choices, and our constant search for the ultimate truth.
The Battle Of The Soul also provides tools for self-exploration and can potentially teach readers to understand themselves better by evoking a power of their imagination.
The book is in the process of being written and will be published chapter by chapter online. I have chosen to publish the book for free, but readers will always have an opportunity to support NIKOXXII projects through donations and purchases of many exciting products.
