10 Things About Gulten Dye You Might Not Know

10 Things About Gulten Dye, author of 'Semi-Coma: Evolution of My Intermittent Consciousness'

1. I am crazy about all of nature - the trees, the grass, the hills, the valleys and the rivers. Although I love the quietness of being alone in nature, I am afraid of large animals and the moment I think of the possibility of coming face to face with one of them in nature, I want to hurry up and get back to civilization.  For that reason alone I usually choose to walk during
odd hours in parks or on sidewalks.

2. I often walk to quiet my mind, more like a stroll really, but long ones.  Many times, I have had walks that have taken me well over four hours.  I usually leave my house without any plans and almost always without thought I automatically start picking up trash along the way.

3. I am most comfortable at home. Even when I had the opportunity to travel with ultra-luxurious cruise liners, like Crystal and Regent Cruises, staying in amazing cabins with service “to die for” and seeing our beautiful planet usually after a month I would rather be home on my sofa in my home to enjoy my beloved coffee.

4. I love seeing my friends and family face-to-face instead of talking on the phone or texting. I am the happiest when I have them over at my home for meals.

5. I become a task master in emergency situations. No matter if those emergencies took place at the hospitals where I worked as a nurse for years which were highly organized for agencies, but even with that when they happened it still was chaos every time or when the emergencies took place out of the hospital. In later years when my own son who was diagnosed with diabetes at age ten and lost consciousness several times due to very low blood sugar I realized that during the crisis I had almost no emotions. I always did what was necessary for every one of those occasions.

6. I am a matter-of-fact person and most times I am brutally honest.

7.  I depend on and honor my intuitions for they are usually right on target.

8. Although I am an artist at heart designing and making jewelry, writing, and painting I am overall a very linear and I love the business side of being an artist.

9. I take total responsibility for my own actions at all times. I have always known that everything that was present in my life good or bad was my own doing, but when it comes to others, I often give them the benefit of the doubt and overall I live very much an explanatory style of life when it comes to things that happen out of my control by trying to see the good in even the worst of circumstances.

10. I love food!  One of my absolute passions is creating meals for my friends and tasting everything I see in this universe. 

About the Book

This book is about self-discovery and the journey that awakened me to the many facets of life. The road hasn’t always been easy with its tolls and junctions. It’s about my struggle to discover who I really am, what I believe in and how I’ve arrived at a place where I am able to appreciate myself and my surroundings.

Most of my life I lived in a state of arrested consciousness without being aware of it. Then one day out of nowhere my eyes opened just enough for me to question my way of living and my state of mind. That was the day questions started to arrive. They were nothing like the questions I had before. As if they weren’t even questions they were an unraveling string of realizations followed by overwhelming sorrow. How could I have lived my life as if I was in a semi coma and in turn induce my own suffering?

Of course in the beginning of seeing I didn’t realize that my eyes would open slightly from time to time to give me an illusion of happiness, but because I had no idea what true happiness was I would drift back to my state of familiarity. I lived my life mostly on an automatic life-sustaining machine by my body without my mind interfering with it.

It is my hope that the stories I share with you will somehow touch your heart, perhaps crack open a door and shine a light for you to embark on your own quest of self-discovery. I don’t presume to have all the answers; I don’t even know all the questions. At the very least, I am seeking to understand and allow life to happen; learning to take responsibility and ownership of myself and my actions, and appreciating all that is.

Read the chapters, each on its own. As you move through them, you will uncover my intermittent consciousness as I explore my thoughts or beliefs and might be able to even get a glimpse of my evolution along the way. 

I am blessed to have had so many people touch my life and, knowingly or unknowingly, helped me on my journey. I have come to realize that because we are all one, that anything I come to know and am willing to share with others affects all of us in a positive way. With great humility, I open up my imperfect, yet perfect, life for you to walk beside me. I am forever grateful and honored.
