My writing sometimes differs from the norm, unorthodox, inspired perhaps, but I enjoy learning from “The University of Life”, then sharing my thoughts and feelings with anyone who might be interested. This website asks for nothing, promotes nothing, and tries to achieve very little; it is simply a repository for my interests over the years.
Reading time 2 minutes.
Sometimes I refer to “God”, but I am not religious… and I’m not trying to convert anybody. Rather, I feel we have a Creator that is free from any preconceptions, who judges no one, who “manages” everything, while still giving everyone freedom of choice, guiding and supporting us all the way, and allowing us to learn the lessons we need to learn, thus allowing us to grow. Even if you don’t believe in God, as I like to say, He believes in You.
A book I have written, a ten year project that has become a 300-page labour of love, has been entirely rewarding and fulfilling, although I would never say it has been completed – it’s a bit like a child that never stops growing. It won’t be everyone’s cuppa tea, and it won’t be available for years, but when the time is right I intend to publish it online, at first, at no cost to buy. We all have dreams, after all, so why not reach for the stars?
Offering it as a freebee might mean it makes it onto the bottom shelf, at least. For myself, it’s all about the process, and trusting there is, or will be an audience, rather that holding out for some unrealistic outcome. Trying to have as few expectations as possible, having the attitude “you never know what the future holds”, I feel can only be a good strategy, and hold me in good stead for the future.
The book, and everything I do online, isn’t an effort to attain fame (God forbid), or any great fortune for that matter, it’s a passion that I genuinely believe I should continue with. “Follow your heart”, as the saying goes, and I can’t see anything that will stop me following my own heart, or my creative nature for that matter, at least not until my time has come.
I genuinely feel this material will prove interesting to some, in the future, or whenever, and I certainly see my efforts as more than just an interesting hobby that comes and goes. I have run workshops and meditation evenings in the past, and these have all been well received, as have the books I have written, many of which can be found on this website.
Passionate, hopefully not too obsessive though, I live and breathe what I feel is true in my heart, but I can leave it all behind for a medium flat white. Perhaps a bit altruistic, I like to think I am doing my little bit for the world, following my creativity and inspiration, and seeing where that takes me. That’s what helps make the world go around, I feel, and a whole lot of love of course!
“We are all shining threads in the tapestry of life, not one more, or less important than the other.”
So, yes, I admit I have a real interest in spirituality, and as a result, I enjoy putting my feelings, thoughts, and understandings down on “paper”. I am nowhere near perfect, I am always learning, and something I discovered many years ago that reflects my thinking, is that “enlightenment is when you know you know nothing at all”.
You are welcome to leave comments on what I have written, I take a real interest in these, and I also use social media to supplement my “efforts” as well.
