DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.

"This is a ‘must-read' book for anyone contemplating enlightenment!" - Sophie Boswell Author of “The Power of Feng Shui: Living Proof” __ True liberation means freeing yourself – freedom sometimes takes the form of leaving yourself open to all kinds of new experiences!
Liberation – Seeking the Meaning of Life is the story of how desperate Japanese seeker Shogo Onoe was sent to Mexico by destiny, there to begin a new chapter in a journey of self-introspection.
He writes of the three passionate Mexican friends he treasures, Gerardo, Jorge, and Ramon, who all lent him a great deal of support and belief to his efforts to write and reach deep levels of expression. How did he find his true self in a faraway land?
By comparing life in emotionally cold Japan to the warmth of Mexico and its people, Shogo invites the reader to think harder about the meaning of life in an attempt to spark a revolution in people's hearts and minds.
Liberation – Seeking the Meaning of Life also opens a door for others seeking the meaning of life. Sometimes fate plays a role that can change our life forever, but only if we are liberated enough to take a chance.
This book is for people who are seeking a more satisfying life and believe in individualism. Shogo shares the path to his destiny – to be true to himself, unconditionally!
Shogo Onoe always felt like a stranger in his homeland of Japan. As a creative soul and a passionate autodidact - having taught himself for most of his childhood - he's a firm believer in the value of self-taught learning. Pursuing his dreams of being an artist and writer, Shogo draws his inspiration from great authors including the works of Henry Miller and Knut Hamsun. He has a love of travel and adventure, having visited Canada, Mexico, Australia, Germany, Hungary, and much of Europe in his twenties through his early thirties. Shogo's wanderings drove him to forge his own path through life, one where he dedicates his time to writing, being an artist, and staying true to himself.
