In a lovely and inspiring parable about change and making that leap of faith required to live the life of your dreams, author and “zentrepreneur” Stuart Avery Gold introduces readers to a frog named Ping. Ping is on a mission to find a new pond, and his journey mirrors the vision quest of myth and legend as he meets a wise teacher who helps guide him to his destiny.

That teacher is Owl, who encourages Ping to first go within himself before going outside of himself to find his happiness. As Ping learns the wisdom of the ages, he becomes more equipped to face the risks and challenges the actual journey will put before him, but not without some tragedy.

Ping’s quest to find a new home and a new way of being in the world is filled with Zen wisdom and inspiring insight that can help anyone, frog or human, on their own journey of self-discovery. Reminiscent of Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist and Dan Millman’s The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, the story of Ping the frog is sure to both empower and entertain those who truly believe that “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

Gold, who co-authored the Zentrepreneur Guides series that includes Tiger Heart, Tiger Mind and Wowisms, presents a warm and moving parable that, although not as original or as profound as some of its predecessors, still makes for a great gift to self or another in search of finding spiritual higher ground.

Ping finds what he is looking for, although his path is not the one he first imagined. Proof that any goal is within reach as long as we reach within. Hey, I am pretty wise myself, ain’t I?
