Publisher Description

A Meeting. A Journal. A Price to Pay. A Life to Gain.

"The Tollbooth" follows the story of business meeting between Mr. Robert Campbell, the CEO of a multinational conglomerate, and an employee who is looking for more. During this encounter, Mr. Campbell shares something he's never shown to anyone: a hand-written journal. Within its pages, the employee learns invaluable life lessons, strategic business insights, and, most important of all, the secret to a transcendent life.

"The Tollbooth" is the second (and favorite!) of author John Feloni's trio of books, which include "The Covenant Secret," that propound and elucidate time-tested as well as contemporary philosophies on life and business. Each book is a modern-day exemplum, or parable, with the concepts presented in a riveting story that entertains as much as it educates. "Hollywood Digest" writes that Mr. Feloni "makes the giving and sharing of ideas and hard knocks feel effortless."

Learn the secrets to life and business today. The toll owed is small and the reward gained is mighty. 


"Most people live their lives in a state of hypnosis, never really living life the way it’s supposed to be lived."

"One must be diligent in keeping one’s attention off of the undesirable condition. In meditation, contemplation, and prayer, one should take the time and energy to focus on the desired condition."

"When you meditate, contemplate, or pray, give thanks for the good things in your life."

"You don’t become healthy by becoming an expert on disease, which, for the most part, is how medical doctors are trained. You must become an expert on health."

"We were made in God’s image. We are designed to fulfill our inner nature. As God’s children we were made to be everything our inner voice tells us that we can be. This is the Truth of the physical universe over which God has given us dominion. Forget opinions!"

"That’s why now is the time for you to break free of them. I’ve been where you are. Confusion, frustration, harassment from your loved ones, the death of a loved one, a yearning inside, passion eating at you, fear, everything. I’ve been there."

"But now is the time for you to free yourself of all the shackles that bind you."

"The most important thing I see in you is the beautiful music your heart is making. It’s singing out in wonderful harmony. It’s so obvious. You’ve got to listen to it. You are as ready as you’ll ever be to live your life as it was meant to be lived. Go for it!"


In Biblical and spiritual terms, the number 40 stands for a period of gestation, of waiting, of growth, of cleansing, and of the development of spirit. During this period, a soul desirous of “enlightenment” will find him- or herself wandering in a spiritual wilderness and undergoing tests and trials on all planes of being. For example . . .

- During the Great Flood, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights.

- The Israelites wandered the desert for 40 years in search of the Promised Land.

- Moses spent 40 days on Mount Sinai in commune with God.

- After he was baptized, Jesus spent 40 days meditating in the desert.

- The Catholic Lent is for 40 days.

- After the resurrection, Jesus appeared to the apostles for 40 days.

- Buddha sat for 40 days under a tree before achieving enlightenment.

- The Archangel Gabriel first appeared to Mohammad when he was 40-years-old.

- A child lies some 40 weeks in the womb.

- Strangely enough, the author was 40-years-old when he finished this book in 1998.
