A Response to My Dad…. Pt 2
OK, I admit to being surprised, my Dad actually wrote back shortly after that last…
Religion, Philosophy, Theology and (sadly) Politics fall into the same vein.
The Orthodoxy is in the business of keeping the status quo and I have recently realized that much of the work I have done in the last few months has been very dissatisfying because I have neglected being authentic to myself and the way I express. Instead, I have been trying to not “rock the boat” when what I want to do is tip it over and make everyone swim for a bit, even if only to awaken them a little.
I have nearly finished my current book, “10 Secrets to the Secret”, but on reading it, where it’s pretty good and will likely fit well on the bookshelf at what few bookstores remain open in today’s world, I do not really want to put my name on it, It is just not my book on the Law of Attraction.
The same has been true for a while on this blog and my newsletter, they get the message across, but I see so little of me in it, I almost wonder if I am outsourcing it (now there is an idea, how much to get some Indian to write my blog? Hmmmm, they are likely to get the Sanskrit parts right a lot easier than I do).
So I guess what I am trying to say is that I, first, want to apologize for not having been true to my inspirations, and secondly, warn you that the tone around here is likely to change. The part of my writing that I dislike the most is the lack of humor and fun. I teach that Life is supposed to be an entertainment for the Spirit, I have been suffocating my chance to be fun in the name of “fitting in,” screw that, it is not only making my writing boring, but it is beginning to kill me, literally and figuratively.
So the gloves come off! (Pass the hand cream!)
One of the inspirations I list on my website is Dr. euGene Scott, I realize now that not only was he right to present what was on his heart in his own way, but as I heard someone say earlier today, “God created you as you are, He celebrates when you are the you He made you to be.”
So I am going to finish this entry off with the wisdom of a child, a young girl from Oprah Winfrey’s school in Africa by the name of Lesego;
You are an individual. Act like an individual. Don’t try to blend in. Blend out.
