The title of this book is an obvious reference to Lyman Frank Baum’s 1900 well-known tale “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”.

As so often there are different interpretations why the journalist and author called the path Dorothy and her companions travel on The Yellow Brick road. He died in 1919 and we will never really know. I believe, as so often, it is not just one reason but the combination of two or more. The fact that L. Frank Baum was a member of the Theosophical Society years before the book came out shows me that he was a broadminded thinker. The mission of the organisations founded in 1875 is to serve humanity by cultivating an ever-deepening understanding and realisation of the ageless wisdom, spiritual self-transformation, and the unity of all life. [P – 1]. It would be too simple to believe L. Frank Baum was just writing children’s novels without any deeper meaning or references.

Back to title. Just like Dorothy we are all on our journeys in life, easily distracted and misguided by life around us, influenced by who we are and what we are meant to be. The framework I am bringing to life in this book is not mine but I know it can enable us to reach a world where we can live in a more sustainable way which gives us more time to figure out what the meaning of life and evolutions is all about. Read and find out why we are not on a yellow but turquoise brick road.
