Software and technological entrepreneur Huie, who came to a search for deeper meaning later in life, has teamed up with artist and writer, Radmacher, who came to it earlier through her art. Point and counterpoint, they take the reader through a process of taking charge of their own lives.

The key to living an inspired life is simple: accept your past; release your expectations; embrace your choices. The truth of the matter is that the more we like ourselves, the fewer expectations we have, and the way we make conscious choices -- in everyday matters large and small -- are the key to living an inspired life.

Simply an Inspired Life teaches readers to distinguish between events and our feelings about them, to choose thoughtfully, and to never blame ourselves or anyone else. Filled with inspiring quotes -- wisdom from the ages and all traditions, personal stories, and exercises -- Simply an Inspired Life is based on eight guiding principles: honor, forgiveness, gratitude, choice, vision, action, celebration, and unity with all creation. They are all equally important -- and practiced daily they change lives.

* Radmacher, an artist and visionary, teams up with Jonathan Lockwood Huie, a retired computer technologist-executive with a mission to teach self-awareness through his writing, website, and seminars, combine their skills and wisdom to create a plan for a simple and inspired life.

* The key is recognizing the power of conscious choice -- even bad circumstances come with a choice.
