Based on his world travels, Joseph has insured that parts of this book of haiku poems and thoughts are translated in seven different languages from around the world. The language translations will allow individuals who are not proficient in English to read the text in their own language for their knowledge and upliftment. This will motivate and enable them to share their experience with other so they too will be able to read and meditate on the words of enlightenment in a manner of mindfulness.
