A Mystical Journey Into The Beauty
And Awe Of Life, And The Daily Power Of Transcendence Through Surprise
What is surprise in your life but an instant opportunity for transformation? A moment that can send you ascending into joy and wonder, or spiraling into deep thought and life-changing new awareness.
An eye-catching beautiful and whimsical book The (not so) Little Book of Surprises brings that home in—of course—surprising ways! A mystical journey into consciousness, an exploration of what touches our hearts, a glimmering reflection on nature and our selves, and a plea for becoming our better angels are just some of the touchstones in store for readers as they experience the poetic exquisiteness of this gem.
This rumination on surprise comes courtesy of William Arntz, the creator and producer who surprised, confounded and delighted with his remarkable film What the Bleep Do We Know!? Now he teams with his wife, internationally renowned spiritual teacher and poet Deirdre Hade and award-winning photographer Endre Balogh to create something else quite special.
The (not so) Little Book of Surprises is anchored with Hade’s visionary and lyrical poetry skipping lightly about over the stunning images curated by Balogh. Each breathtaking page creates an emotional resonance with the reader … using surprise as the doorway to transformation and transcendence. The images in the book are part eye candy/part soul candy. They pile on a sensory experience that mounts the sense of surprise page by page.
About the Authors
William Arntz began his professional career as a research laser physicist, developing wave optics simulators for high energy lasing systems. He then wrote a systems management software system called AutoSys. Embraced by Fortune 500 companies around the world, he sold his company and retired. Or so he thought…
After some months on the beach William became interested in disseminating some of the principles gleaned from his decades of spiritual inquiry to the general public. He realized he could satisfy a life-long dream and use the software proceeds to make a movie. That movie started its life as a small documentary about Spirit and Science, but grew in scope (and budget) and became What the BLEEP Do We Know!? Producing, scripting, and co-directing the film, What the BLEEP went on to become a global phenomenon, with well over 100 million viewers experiencing the BLEEP. The companion book to the film What the Bleep has sold over 150,000 copies and has been translated into 20 languages.
Andre Balogh (Photography and Images) continues as an internationally regarded concert violinist. And through life’s mystery and surprise, they emerged as something else entirely, which makes them imminently qualified to bring forth a meditation in print on the gifts of surprise.
