Title: The Longest Distance
Author: David Scott
Genre: Spirituality, Self-Help, Inspiration and Personal Growth, Literary Fiction
Part love story, part adventure mystery, part travel guide for the soul, The Longest Distance is a meditation in traveling from our heads to our hearts, and an awakening to what lies within.
Shaken by tragedy in the wilds of Africa, Jeremy Braddock sets off in search of the answers to our questions about life, truth, and the all-too-trying-yet-wonderful emotion of love. From Kenya to Costa Rica – and a host of other venues along the way – the protagonist takes us on a rollercoaster ride and riveting journey that reveals to us the masters, the maniacal beauty of this planet, and the greatest mystery of all––the ‘one thing’ we came here to know. As with life itself, he is not alone in this adventure, with the many supporting characters providing him with mirrored reflections of love in its varied forms, and a windowed view into his soul. Armed with his wit, his will, and an ample dose of healthy humility, our vigilant warrior attempts to summon within himself the courage we must all find to see the face of Truth, and walk the path of a higher Love.
The Longest Distance evokes deeper contemplation à la Eat, Pray, Love with a level of discourse and discovery that will resonate with those who have been touched by the writings of Paulo Coehlo and Neale Donald Walsch. Interwoven within the tapestry of the novel and in between each storied tale is an uplifting dialogue with Jeremy’s higher self -- the Friend that points the way. What adds to TLD’s universal appeal is the inspirational guest appearances of a myriad of Masters – from poets to statesmen to those of the cloth – along with each chapter’s unveiling of a key ‘quality’ that, when pieced together, helps to reveal the greater picture at hand -- the Love within the love that beckons us home.
The Longest Distance is a sleuth of spirit and treasure hunt of the heart that awakens our soul and provides yet another clue for the curious, a jewel for the romanticist in us all.
David Scott was born in the United States, and raised in the world. He currently resides in Singapore, but remains deeply connected to the passion that is Paris, the power shift that finds its new home in Asia, and the movement to co-create and cooperate that had its genesis for him in America; its inspiration both within and throughout.
David has spent his career in the field of education, his life in the field of service. He is perhaps best known for his contributions as an accomplished entrepreneur, investor and leader in education, establishing and stewarding innovative school systems of size and scope in North America, the Middle East and Pacific Asia. He has played both visionary leader and humble student, with each measure of the world his teacher. David’s work in education and support of the life sciences has provided hope for a more advanced, equitable and sustainable means to greater health and life for those he has been privileged in knowing.
The central theme of both his scholarship as an educationist and his work as an author is the delicate but essential role of relationships. David’s travels have provided a cross-cultural perspective on relationships of a human nature. His discovery of the inner worlds through meditation and study of various teachings has offered a glimpse into the power of the possible that resides within. It is this he seeks to help unveil in all through education and transformative writing.
With a poetic note and romantic view to the worlds available to us all, David Scott’s writing explores relationships of a higher nature, with a particular emphasis on the Masters and their timely messages. His novel The Longest Distance has been called a meditation from the head to the heart, and an awakening to what lies within. It serves as a pathway to the eternal that is ours to claim.
David may be recognized in the world for his contributions to education. Yet, he remains humbled by the many lessons—the gifts—the world has bestowed upon him as his teacher.
He now remains at your service as an author.
