This manual has been written within very difficult circumstances. That it has been completed at all appears to be a miracle. That is why I express my heart-felt gratitude to God in the first instance for the courage that sustained me over the fifteen-month period that it took to commence writing and to complete it. For the four-year period that occupied me in preparations and writing, Beatrice Dedo Mate-Kole proved the most tolerant and helpful. Without her support, the assistance of Eki Gbinigie, Explo Nani-Kofi, Kwesi Pratt, Jnr, and Alhaji Ali Anum-Yemoh would have been in vain.
Encouraging comments from promising young men like Kosi Dedey, Duke Tagoe, Kwaku Dadzie and Abraham Allotey urged me on in no small measure. Kwaku Dadzie and Richard Abonie would rather this manual were presented in a direct book form. That was the extent of the enthusiasm of these gentlemen. It is my hope that explanations offered to them will satisfy them for the time being.
Ama Adumea Ohene made me feel that this manual had been awaited for decades. Her positive comments on the uncompleted manuscript assured me that sophisticated readers like her would likewise be pleased that at long last the younger generation will find Consciencism accessible.
For all the material assistance, like Explo Nani-Kofi’s purchase of the copy of Consciencism used for this writing, financial assistance and spiritual support of all the above-mentioned persons I remain forever grateful.
May the good Lord bless all of them in Jesus’ name.
