I am an autodidact. I educated myself, taught myself how to write, and instructed myself what kinds of books I should read. My education largely depended on myself; however, my intelligence has somehow reached the ordinary level or more unique level, so to speak.
I truly believe that I did the most difficult thing: I educated myself. Moreover, I really believe that self-education is the best way to be a unique writer. I love to express myself and write about my life. I am very lucky to have true friends and love to describe our friendship. I have the important mission as a writer in my life and the reality to write upon.
About My Book
LIBERATION – Seeking the Meaning of Life
True liberation means freeing yourself – freedom sometimes takes the form of leaving yourself open to all kinds of new experiences. Liberation – Seeking the Meaning of Life is the story of how desperate Japanese seeker Shogo Onoe was sent to Mexico by destiny, there to begin a new chapter in a journey of self-introspection. He writes of the three passionate Mexican friends he treasures, Gerardo, Jorge, and Ramon, who all lent him a great deal of support and belief to his efforts to write and reach deep levels of expression. How did he find his true self in a faraway land?
By comparing life in emotionally cold Japan to the warmth of Mexico and its people, Shogo invites the reader to think harder about the meaning of life in an attempt to spark a revolution in people’s hearts and minds.
Liberation – Seeking the Meaning of Life also opens a door for others seeking the meaning of life. Sometimes fate plays a role that can change our life forever, but only if we are liberated enough to take a chance.
This book is for people who are seeking more satisfying life and believe in individualism. Shogo shares the path to his destiny – to be true to himself, unconditionally.
What Readers Are Saying
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Shogo is a talented writer whose use of the English language enhances the story in a delightful and refreshing way. His words flow like a spring stream in the mountains heading for the coast. I found his energy and passion for living infectious; and I admire his honesty. This is a ‘must read’ book for anyone contemplating enlightenment.” –
