A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO THE PROCESS OF BECOMING ALL THAT YOU WERE MEANT TO BE
If you’re seeking a collection of classic poems this may not be the right book for you.

Or maybe your life’s okay but you just have this nagging feeling that there has to be something more. We’ve all been there, in one way or another. And most of us never figure out how to even begin to do something about it. But what if you were presented with the right information that could help you change all that? This book provides everything you need to get started on your transformation journey. Become Your Masterpiece will:
Ease you into a way of life where it becomes almost second nature to bypass the noise and distraction of daily living and journey inward to find the answers that await discovery.
Set the stage for you to learn, through that inward focus, how to connect with the universal currents of wisdom and knowledge.

JOURNEY OF THE AUTHOR CARLTON J. BULLER
At an early age Carlton became interested in metaphysics. When the nuns were teaching that God made man he was quick to ask who made God. That natural curiosity led him to always try to figure out how things worked. He marveled at the awesome power of nature. He felt more comfortable alone in nature than with people. It was as if he was trying to become one with the universe. As he was reaching adulthood he began to spread his wings, wandering far and near. His travels took him to several continents. He did stints in the US Marines and Silicon Valley and pursued various fields of study. His brand of restlessness surely meant that he was searching for something. He would eventually realize that he was going everywhere but getting nowhere.
And that certain something he’d long been seeking but never finding? He would only discover it after slowing down long enough to realize the futility of all that activity. His inward quest began after he was advised by a Native American shaman to redirect his energy, as all the answers he needed were already inside of him. That proved to be amazingly prophetic. Though he wouldn't be able to recognize it for a very long time, it really marked the beginning of his journey of healing and transformation - a journey that continues to this day. It also led him to discover his true purpose in life - a purpose we all share - and define a major mission in support of that purpose. Today, he is singularly focused on helping others become all that they were meant to be. He continues to do that through speaking engagements, seminars, webinars, poetry, the four books he has published and the new writing projects he currently has in process.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW OF AUTHOR CARLTON J. BULLER WITH DE MODE
Q: "Become Your Masterpiece," is a unique blend of poetry and self-help. What inspired you to combine these genres to convey your message?
A. Divine intervention inspired me to push the boundaries and publish a type of book that hadn’t been seen before. At the moment of my greatest need, all this wisdom flowed into and through me via poetic verse. I simply acted on those insights and compiled this masterpiece that has turned out to be a very unique coffee table book.
Q: You mention connecting with universal wisdom and recognizing insights through introspection. How has this process impacted your own life and journey?
A. I survived multiple types of childhood abuse and eventually overcame its horrible legacy. The universal currents of wisdom and knowledge were the beacons that guided me every step of the way. I couldn’t have made it through without that. My life choices have been informed through deep introspection. I’ve always made the right choices when acting on those insights.
Q: Nature seems to have played a significant role in shaping your perspective. How does your connection to nature influence your writing and the messages you wish to convey?
A. Stilling my mind in peaceful environments seems to have a profound effect on me. I receive the best insights when I embrace the power of stillness, especially out in nature. Long walks are my favourite. But I get the same benefit from sitting near the ocean, a lake, a river, a stream and even out in the country.
Q: You've travelled extensively and explored various fields of study. How have these experiences contributed to your personal growth and influenced the insights in your book?
A. Much of that travel was about searching for answers to questions that I didn’t even know I had. I eventually realized that I was going everywhere but getting nowhere and ultimately turned to Metaphysics. It was only then that I began to grasp the significance of many of the experiences I had while in the grip of that wanderlust.
Q: Your inward quest began after advice from a Native American shaman. Could you share a pivotal moment or realization during this introspective journey that significantly shaped your perspective?
A. One significant realization that came after my search turned inward is that child abuse programs a person to fail. Consequently, survivors face a much greater challenge than non-survivors when trying to transform their lives. And they will never have true success or experience lasting peace until they find a way to replace that failure programming with success programming.
Q: In your opinion, what role does healing play in the process of transformation, and how does your book guide readers through this journey of healing?
A. Child abuse disrupts the vibrational frequencies at which the body, mind and spirit most effectively communicate. Even if you were not abused as a child those frequencies are likely not optimally aligned. Become Your Masterpiece helps you begin the process of restoring those optimal vibrational frequencies, which are an integral part of healing and absolutely necessary for successful transformation.
Q: Can you share a bit about the essay in the afterword of your book that demystifies success into easy-to-follow steps?
A. It identifies the various components of success, discusses the relationship between our basic creative nature and the need to succeed and establishes the first level of achievement as the commitment to create. It also defines success as a way of life that should be embraced, a habit that must be developed and lived and a personal growth journey.
Q: Your mission seems deeply rooted in helping others realize their potential. How do speaking engagements, seminars, and your writing projects contribute to this mission?
A. Those who were abused face a far greater challenge than those who have not. But the lessons I’ve learned about overcoming that legacy are applicable well beyond the survivor community. So, I deliver my material to anyone in need regardless of their history. Utilizing all three channels allows me to help many more by extending my reach.
Q: Within your book, you highlight the importance of gratitude, visualization, and embracing creativity. Could you expand on how these elements contribute to personal transformation?
A. Studies have shown that gratitude improves your mental, physical and emotional health. When you visualize yourself doing what you want to do in the future you are in fact observing your plan of action for the present. Creativity is integral to visualization. When you visualize your future, you are actually utilizing your creative ability. All three are essential.
Q: How do you approach the light-hearted and entertaining aspects of your writing while addressing serious topics such as personal growth and healing?
A. It is more like play than work to pursue the passion of creating one’s masterpiece. So, writing is never a chore for me. Nor is anything that has to do with my mission. The lightheartedness that I experience expresses itself in playful ways with playful themes and topics that come naturally and with little effort.
