Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Salinger (The documentary of J. D. Salinger)

I watched it on Netflix streaming this weekend.

I'd had no idea how much his experiences in WW II had affected him. Moreover I didn't know anything about his mystical and spiritual side and how that quest was central to him.

We'll know more when his estate allows further books of his to be released starting in 2015. I look forward to reading especially about the paranormal experiences he had and what he did with them.

Hello Thomas,

I, also, watched that documentary recently. Salinger was a huge
influence on my own spiritual quest. If you only know him from
A Catcher in the Rye you would have missed all the references to
Hinduism and Buddhism in Nine Stories and Franny and Zooey.
I just dug out my copies of those books, which I have moved
around with me since the early 1960's when I first read them, and
have been reading them again. I even named my dog, a Shih Tzu,
Zooey. Some of the most spiritual references are in the story, Teddy,
in Nine Stories. I, too, look forward to reading the older writings.
Most of what he wrote was unpublished or only published in
magazines, like the New Yorker and Story. Many of them were
published without his consent in one volume which he had stopped.
It's price prohibitive for me so I look forward to being able to
read more once things come out in a year or two.

Thanks for your advice, AD. We read Catcher in the Rye in HS. I didn't find it terribly engaging. But then I didn't feel very rebellious.

I have Franny and Zooey somewhere, but I haven't read it. Glad for the heads up. I didn't know before the documentary of his spiritual quest, so now I'm very interested in him.
