The men and women of our oldest generation can teach us valuable, life-changing lessons, if only we wdt stop and listen. If only we are uniting to learn.
Sometimes called the “greatest “generation, they were horn at the dawn of the amazing 20th century. In their lives, they have experienced and triumphed over a crippling economic crisis, the Qreat Depression, and survived the most horrific conflict in mankind’s history, World War II.
They have witnessed technological marvels — men walking on the moon! — to the extent that fantastic scientific wonders are now commonplace. They have seen the definitions offamdy and faith shift in unexpected ways. They have observed the fundamentals of the great American experiment continually tested and constantly endure.
The lessons of these remarkable men and women — now in their 70s, 80s, and beyond — are what The Seven Sacred Truths is all about. The purpose of this program is to bridge the too-frequent gaps between youthful impatience and the self-possession brought by advancing age, between the idealism of inexperienced youth and the wisdom gained by long years of sometimes-tough living.
I asked many of these men and women this simple yet exceedingly profound question: What are the seven most important lessons you’ve learned over the course of your life? I am honored and humbled that so many responded, that so many honestly revealed what they feel to be the most essential truths to pass on to subsequent generations.

Some of their responses are found in these pages, as are a series of questions designed to provoke self-assessment. These questions focus on the seven sacred truths our eldest generation time and again identified as most key. Their purpose is to help you begin to determine what rote these truths currently play in your life — and how they can impact it even more deeply in the future.

It is only when you are honest, only when you look, deep into your own heart, that you can accurately assess where you are now and how best to go about eventually arriving at your desired destination.
