The Birth of Becoming
By Dr. Peter J. Morry

I have often been asked the question "why I wrote the book becoming"? The answer to the question is multifaceted.

I first started writing as a young man. Back then my writing consisted almost entirely of poetry. Over the years I collected quite a few poems and my writing skills improved as the years went on. Initially the poetry was not for publication. However as I matured and got more confident I showed my poetry to some friends who suggested I publish it. I realize that books of poetry are seldom published, and if published rarely sold. I also realized that everyone loves and most people write poetry. So the problem I was presented with was how do I make my poetry commercial?

In my later years I also became quite interested in politics, world affairs, philosophy, and like most people questioned why the world was the way it was. My readings became broader and I found myself reading books about the origin of the universe, meaning of time, quantum physics, theory of relativity, the meaning of life, and other such profound questions that most people think about during their lifetime. I also had a keen interest in psychology and counseling in my medical practice.

As a medical doctor I was also privy to such meaningful issues as birth, death, illness of all sorts both physical and mental, sexuality, abuse and religion. I had to deal with issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and suicide. Issues affecting mental and physical health in which I had a role to play as an advisor or healer.

Sociological evolutions evolutionary forces were also shaping society in a very profound and complex was that made it more difficult for people to find peace and happiness. People were doubting the integrity of their financial, religious judicial, governmental and other institutions as scandals and corruption was getting all pervasive.

It was this mix of forces that provided an opportunity to showcase my poetry which was about most of the things above. So I used all these issues as the backdrop. Many of my ideas are provocative and the poetry is evocative.

My mission became simple. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to change the world. How do you do that? The answer is simple. You change the world one person at a time. If I can change a person's core values to foster understanding, acceptance, tolerance and love, I will have changed how they see the world and for them I would have changed the world.
