Yes, I know my writing this past week has been kind of heavy duty. Tonight, though, will be shorter and much more informal. Normally, I wouldn’t even tell you that, but tonight is a rather sharp departure from the last week. It’s part of my work as a writer.
I’m a writer by choice. I created my fate because I heard my Heart. I realized there is that deep part of me, that Spirit within me, the energy, dynamic standing in antithesis to Ego energy. When I acknowledged that, spoke with that part of myself, I knew there was more. All those times I felt like there was more, all those times I prayed to find that greater purpose, to recognize it, it was always there— in me. It was my decision, my creation.
Having weighed, considered, felt, and brooded, I knew the purpose I wanted to create. I’ve written about it before, extensively, but to recap here, I created my purpose to keep discovering for myself, to be Discovery, and to express that through communication arts and writing in particular.
Part of that has required me to do things, learn things, and create beyond anything I would have imagined when I made that declaration. It was my Declaration of Independence from my Ego, Ego whose impulse and energy made me believe for so many years I was incapable of being a creator, Ego who convinced me that some power or intelligence greater than mine would have to mysteriously reveal my purpose. Yeah, that was Ego bullshit. Now, I write.
Today, in my work as a writer, I have faced one of those tasks necessary to do if I want to remain free in my Heart-purpose. It may sound simple, and to published authors it may be. However, categorizing a book like my short Discovering Self and Creating Purpose presents a lot of questions. Where does it best match the genre descriptions in a master genre database? If it could conceivably be in more than one, which it can, which one would be most beneficial for people to find it? Then, I need to find five or six other books close to mine thematically within the genre. Time consuming for me.
Engaging in this work creates significance, fulfillment, and joy for me because I know I’m doing what I have created. I feel great about it because I share my love through this. I strive to help others discover self and see that they have that ability to create their purpose. It’s fun. It’s challenging. I love doing it.
Having said all this, I definitely wish to get my book out quickly. I mean, if I find joy like this, I want to share it. And it’s not sharing a secret formula or anything like that; I simply want to show others the tools, the ideas, the framework of what I have used and experienced and let others discover and create for themselves. That’s where Heart-reality comes in.
Because I value this and the setting in which I live and the ability to find information, express myself with no official reprisals to fear, and eventually realize income some way, some how, connected with this, I write about this America in which I live. I have written about the Heart-energized beginnings and the current threats to that presented by a severely Ego-distorted “leadership.” Ego, however, doesn’t only have claim on those at high levels expressing a disdain for Heart energy as they have abandoned that and given themselves over to their Ego, which is not a sin until they do things that impinge on the rights and freedoms of others, especially to live in Heart-truth. So, when that happens, I care, I am concerned, and I cannot refrain from exposing it in my work. It’s me, no apologies.
Tonight and tomorrow I will continue doing the work to get Discovering Self and Creating Purpose available to the general public, many of whom have not rejected Heart but rather just haven’t heard it. My hope is for readers to know the reality of the title. My joy is to enter into the fellowship of the Heart with those who follow their Heart. So, onward in my determination of genre, comparison to others in that genre, and crafting a final product with my little team. And I do love this work.
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
