No, you have not been a guinea pig! However, I have been a practicing writer, so you have been critics, although very nice ones.
These evening articles over the past few weeks have, in part, served as drafts for the ebook I have had in process for awhile. I am aware of myself, my weaknesses, my strengths, and I know that I take longer than most people to learn things and to get projects done. I know why, basically, but it’s of no interest to anyone else. I only mention it because someone might think that I keep talking about an ebook and a novel and may be questioning why I don’t have either one finished. Like I said, several reasons.
The things I have written about like the Grand Unified Theory of Humanity, the 10 Steps (maybe Stages) to Awakening, the roles of Ego and Heart, the fulness of who and what we are, the computer analogy of eOS and hOS — all of these and more reveal why I believe we are here on this earth.
In these articles over the last 10 months, I have attempted to show the practical application of my philosophy. I’ve done this in writing about social issues, personal stories, and life experiences. If my ideas aren’t practical, workable, applicable to everyday life, then they are worthless. In Morning Pages today, I made the point that these topics would be like fat wood kindling that burns brightly but unless it is applied to a pile of wood to start a fire, it’s basically useless.
I want my writing to be like kindling, to ignite exploration and discovery of core Self. I want each of us to be living on the hOS simply because that’s why we really came here. No one is wrong processing life through the eOS, but they aren’t going to feel as happy, fulfilled, or significant.
When people choose the heart as the primary processor and filter of life, they discover purpose, a purpose that shares their spiritual essence and gifts with the world; they are expressions of love, a practical love lived in simply doing work that yields joy for the doer and blessing to the world. This is the practical outworking of everything I write about.
So, I have a friend who has followed his heart, crafted a vision, lived it in purpose, mapped out his mission, and writes down all his goals. Then, he executes relentlessly, every single day. Part of his purpose is to open a microbrewery. Guess what? It looks like by year’s end he will be up and running on phase 1.
Big deal, someone might think. Well, it kind of is. He quit a solid, secure job after saving for several years with a young family to be able to do this. He budgeted the savings. He has raised several hundred thousand dollars. He has done this over the last year and a half with the support of his excellent wife who has worked in her heart’s passion while all this has been developed.
And in this process, they have blessed hundreds, maybe thousands, of people, because a big part of their vision has been philanthropy. They have raised incredible amounts of money to support families affected by autism, as well as contributing efforts that have helped raise even more money for other causes. Oh, and now the purpose extends to a media production company as a result of developing all this. Along with a few dozen others, I have been on the receiving end of the blessing of their vision and purpose, being involved marginally in the business development and serving on the board of the charity they established.
This is what I mean by practical. This is what I mean by living according to one’s Heart in vision, purpose, passion and mission. This is the significance of discovering core Self and life Purpose.
So, I work on my books that others may come to know this sort of joy in life. It’s exciting and filled with positive energy, energy that makes a difference, energy that radiates love.
Yeah, I need to step up my publishing game, because it’s just too much to keep to myself.
