Having started my own spiritual journey thirty years ago, I have a real interest in “all things spiritual”, and much of what I write tends to reflect this. My writing sometimes differs from the norm, perhaps it’s even “off the wall” to a degree, but I enjoy learning from “The University of Life”, then sharing my experiences if others are interested, whether these are esoteric, practical, mystical or worldly, all integrated together. Learning from experience, and not being taught something from others has its merits, in some cases, I feel.
Reading time 2 minutes.
With explanations along the way, I hope that what could easily be seen as “airy-fairy” and “out-of-touch”, makes more sense, and can be seen as being of practical use.
Sometimes I refer to “God”, but I am not religious. 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 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, but still, I intend to publish it online at first, at no cost to buy, when I feel the time is right.
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.
