Dare to Imagine continues to make its way to people from all walks of life. So far purchases continue to be steady in the bay area. People from other countries have received copies of the book as well including the following: Canada, Italy, China, Japan, Germany, Philippines, and India. Copies of the book has made its way to many spiritual leaders of various faiths. A copy has made its way to one of the descendants of a royal family in Japan.
A screen writer read Dare to Imagine and stated, " your book is inspiring and a joy to read." I was traveling last weekend to Monterey and just happened to park my car outside this interesting Tibetan store. I chatted with the owner of the store about meditation techniques. We exchanged ideas of how we did meditation and eventually I just mentioned my book. The owner was very interested and curious with my book and I just happened to have some copies in my car that I was going to bring to a book club. After reviewing the book, he immediately told me he wanted to purchase it and stock it in his store. My book is now available at his store in Monterey, Om Rhythm Store on Cannery Row. It is a wonderful store that sells all sorts of Tibetan things, spiritual things and books. I think I might be sharing book space with the Dalai Lama. LOL! The book is also available at the Postal Annex in Dublin, CA. Book sale here has been consistent and great! I restock them regularly. Please support these wonderful stores for they also share my vision.
A high school senior and valedictorian recently read Dare to Imagine and was extremely inspired by it. He stated that every teen should read this book. He saw great potential for this book on its impact on people.
It has also made its way into a school in Pleasanton, Sakura Gakuen. Please continue to support my vision of spreading peace, love and hope to the world by sharing my website and book at www.dare2imagineit.org or share my youtube video. Thank you for your ongoing support. Remember, peace, love and happiness and belong to all of us. Love, Blake
Dare to imagine continues to make a difference!!!
The owner of a store in Dublin bought and read Dare to Imagine. He was quite impressed with it and was proud and excited to sell our book. Sale has been good there. We continue to restock our books there on a regular basis. Recently a woman purchased the book and was quite touched by it so much so she bought the rest of the copies off the shelf on Thursday. She found the book quite helpful and relevant and wanted to share it with her love ones. She asked the owner of the store to have me autograph one copy and write a special message to her son to inspire and encourage him. I was happy and honored to comply with her wishes.
This week I went to visit a client of mine but was surprised to be greeted by her grandson who had recently heard about my book and bought a copy. Usually he is quite quiet and very soft spoken but today he transformed into an entirely different person. He was just oozing with positive reviews and feedback about the book. He found it extremely relevant and was quite touched by the story. He had so much enthusiasm when talking about the book that he could hardly contain himself from talking. He was so joyous, emotional and triumphant when talking about how the book was so inspirational to him. He pleaded me to work hard at spreading the message about this book and further stated every high school kid should read this book. After listening to him, I was deeply touched and had to control my tears of joy; this young man was truly impacted by my story and his life would no longer be the same after reading the book. I could see a spark of light within him that lit up. I had given him hope. This young man was a high school senior and had gone through so much in life with losing a parent and dealing with many problems in life. Now he states he wants to go to college and study psychology and be a writer. I know this young man will achieve greatness in his life. I am so humbled by his kind words and honored to be a part of his journey.
Also, this week I got another good review on Amazon. This man was a bay area screen writer and found the book "inspiring." Another review was from a physical therapist who also found the book very helpful and stated
" everyone can benefit from reading Dare to Imagine."
Two weeks ago, I went to an exclusive viewing of a movie at a Buddhist temple in Berkeley. The film was in Japanese but had English subtitles. It was called Inori. It was a story about the power of prayer, our mind and the Divine. Iconic figures were in the film including Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Japanese Geneticist, Dr. Murakami and others. When I was told about the movie, my friend didn't say much other than it was a Japanese film I might be interested in watching. I was not planning on going but in the last minute something inside of me prompted me to go. Furthermore, something in me told me to just grab a copy of my book just in case. I arrived at the Buddhist temple early and decided to give a copy of my book to the people who sponsored the event. I gave it to a random person who was volunteering. After I seated for a few minutes, the director or coordinator of the movie event came and was extremely grateful for the book. She further invited me to join her group called a Symphony of Prayers in the near future for a multi-faith annual events for local religious and spiritual leaders of all faith to attend this event of unity and prayer. I was deeply touched by her kind gesture. After I watched the movie, I cried because it was a true moment of synchronicity. The film was basically the science behind my book and was spreading the same message I was spreading in my book. Coincidence or synchronicity? I think the latter. Something inside tells me something wonderful is going to happen.

We were deeply touched by one reader who received her copy about a week ago. She was so excited about the book but when she got it, she was disappointed because she had contracted an eye infection. Fortunately, she didn't let that stop her. She had her husband read the book to her regularly. Her husband has enjoyed reading the book and she has enjoyed listening to it.

Last week I went to a lecture presented by renowned physicist and scientist- Dr. Michio Kako. It appeared to be a sold out lecture. I was fortunate to have front row seats for this amazing lecture from such a genius and great orator. I sat next to a very interesting man. We chatted briefly and it turns out this man went to school with Dr. Kako at Harvard. This new acquaintance was apparently a famous doctor whose clients were among the great minds of silicon valley. We had a great time chatting about many topics and when he found out I was a writer and that I had a copy of my book, he became intrigued. He asked if I could let him browse through it. He went through it quite thoroughly and really liked it. I was deeply touched by the blessing on my book from this Harvard doctor. It was such a cool feeling. We talked about some of the things in the book and we seem to agree on even some of the more controversial topics as well. Our discussion was quite intellectually stimulating. We exchanged contact information and I hope to keep in touch with this very interesting and fascinating man.

Hope you guys are enjoying your Friday.

We had a delightful time discussing about the book and enjoying each others company. I mentioned last week that we did a video shoot for Dare to Imagine. I had such a fabulous time doing it. Edward is truly a genius at what he does and is such a wonderful and delightful person to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to promote their book, business or cause. This week we put out new images with new quotes from the book on my Facebook page. We will start posting a sampling of our most popular images and quotes here.

Hello my friend,
Thank you for joining me here today. Here are some updates with Dare to Imagine: So far we are ramping up to do some heavy duty marketing. My Producer and marketing consultant, Edward Bartel, has some wonderful things in store for us in the near future. Many of you have responded well with our Quote images. Personally, I like them a lot. The quotes from the book and the beautiful images make a perfect marriage. If you have not seen it, please go to my Facebook wall and you will see it. If you are not my friend on Facebook just send me a friend request. In the near future, my website will go through a metamorphosis and be much more interesting and user friendly. We will be posting all our images and quotes soon. Please come back weekly and get a dose of positive energy from me.
I will be going to Southern California next week to do a video shoot to get the word out about Dare to Imagine. I am really excited about that and it should be fun!!! I am also meeting with various people to promote my book in the next few weeks. I met with the owner of a Japanese school to discuss about the possibility of promoting the book in Japan where the book is desperately needed. We may have a resource who may help translate this book into Japanese.
Many people have copies of my book but many more desperately need it. It is obvious that Love and hope seem to be lacking in this world. If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, please do so. It will be a book that will change your life and leave you inspired. Help me to spread the message of love and hope by sharing my link and video. If we help each other out, we can truly change the world one special person at a time. My friend, thank you for your support and may God bless you and bring more light into your life.
