The Prison Within Book

It’s 2011 and Don is homeless. He’s a hard-core, street-level drug addict, a secluded loner, and he’s been declared by the courts to be insane. And as if that weren’t enough, he’s also served over twenty years in prison for bank robberies – and he’s been charged with yet another one!!!

It’s 2018. Don’s a homeowner. He’s sober and has genuine friends. He’s married and he’s become a father with two boys. He’s the Director of Software Development for an international financial services company that makes banking software. He’s a transformational speaker, helping others by spreading a message of hope and self-forgiveness.

The Prison Within: A Memoir of Breaking Free is the true, inspirational story of how despair and extreme isolation miraculously turned to hope, connection, and true success. The journey begins as an out of control train wreck, twisting downward through the madness of seedy drug motels, mental institutions, and prison yards. But Don’s path takes a desperate turn, and a slow climb leads to personal awakening, transformation, and healing that propels him upward to make an astonishing comeback.

“Cummins is a writer who isn’t afraid to lay it all out there…he expertly deconstruct[s] the ideas that society has of people who have pasts as colorful as his. With compassion and sensitivity, toward both himself and the people around him, he brings us into his past and all that brought him out of it.”  Independent Book Review

“[G]ripping…a priceless resource, an offer of light for people fighting their way through what seems to be hopeless darkness.” Indie Reader

“A masterfully written book loaded with not only insight and wisdom but lessons that will help anyone change their life or discover in themselves the key to unlocking the door to their own freedom.” Readers Favorite

Knowing who you are is the foundation of true happiness and success.

You may identify in many ways. You may think of yourself as a mother or father, or maybe cisgender or non-binary. You may further identify as a pet lover, a teenager, creator, or an expert in some field. You may identify according as an introvert or extrovert.

The truth is that you are none of the above. You are beyond definition, limitless, and incomprehensible in power and goodness. But knowing this on an intellectual level is not enough. No, to experience true happiness and success in this life, you need to awaken on a deep level to this truth, and re-learn who you truly are.

In Awaken Connect Transform: The Universal Path to Happiness and Success, Don Cummins reveals who you are not, who you are, and lays out a path that will help you internalize who you truly are, profoundly transforming your life.

If you’ve been searching for a path that makes common sense, is spiritual but not religious, and will increase your happiness and success, check out Awaken Connect Transform.
