path of the genie

This book speaks usefully to the towering possibilities within the grasp of every human being. — Neil L. Irons, Bishop, United Methodist Church

“The Path of the Genie” is for the person who wants to live a life that is full of meaning, significance, and fulfillment. It is directed to individuals who want a sense of joy and power in who they are and what they do. It is for anyone who asks the question, “Isn’t there more to life than this?” Based on truths derived from the story of Aladdin, “The Path of the Genie” extracts powerful examples for living from pivotal points in Aladdin’s story. You will discover the keys to getting rid of negative forces along with the transforming powers of humility, self-discovery, and self-offering. Whatever your heart’s desire, “The Path of the Genie” is your roadmap to personal fulfillment.



This exciting book was written by Dr. Dilip Abayasekara, who has made it available for sale at Mission Central at a cost of $10 per copy.  Dr. Abayasekara has designated that 100% of each sale be donated to Mission Central!  Only copies purchased at Mission Central will qualify for the donation, so please make sure to purchase yours at our warehouse at 5 Pleasant View Dr, Mechanicsburg, PA.

The Susquehanna Conference of the UMC is fortunate to have Dr. Abayasekara currently serving as The Field Coordinator for the Bishop’s “Partners in Mission“.  This is a program in which 50% of all donations go to Mission Central to help retire our mortgage, unless a designation is made that your entire donation goes to Mission Central.

Dr. Dilip Abayasekara is a professional speaker, trainer and speech coach.  His focus, through his company Speaker Services Unlimited is to help people discover their own genius and find their path of fulfillment.  He was twice a finalist at Toastmasters International’s World Championship of Public Speaking, placing second in 1992.  He is among a small number of Toastmasters who have received accreditation for professional level speaking skills and serves as the Senior Vice President of Toastmasters International and Special Assistant to the President of Central Pennsylvania College.

Dilip was born and raised in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where he attended Royal College.  After moving to the United States, he graduated from Palm Beach College and the University of Florida (B.S., chemistry).  Following that, he earned a Ph.D. in Polymer and Organic Chemistry from Virginia Commonwealth University.  After working for 12 years as an industrial scientist, he surrendered to his true calling…connecting, influencing and enriching others through the power of the spoken word.

Dr. Abayasekara and his wife Sharon and children Allison and Alex reside in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.

This amazing gift comes just a few months after another local author and pastor, Rev. Dr. Win Green of Baughman UMC, New Cumberland, donated the proceeds from his book to go towards Mission Central’s debt relief efforts.

Mission Central thanks Dr. Abayasekara for his generosity and for his efforts to help assist us in retiring the mortgage on the warehouse.  Both books are available for purchase, so please stop in for your copy today!
