In the morning, the windshields of the cars are coated with dew, the cool glass condensing the thick moisture straight out of the heavy air. With the humidity so high, the mornings are often more uncomfortable than the afternoons as the water vapor rises from the ground, soaking your clothes… sort of like rain in reverse.

As I put on my shark’s tooth necklace, given to me by my mother, I thought of my father’s much larger necklace and thought of how he should give it to my older brother Jeff. Jeff then, as his time neared, could pass it onto his son, Michael. A legacy through the generations.

Following this train of thought, I wondered if I’m subconsciously writing the Mystical Oneness book as some form of posterity—as a way to be remembered after I’m gone.

Why am I writing it? For money? For posterity? For hope?

Dave told me the other day that I shouldn’t think of holding talks as teaching, but as sharing. That’s an excellent perspective: To think of this blog and the book as sharing.

Why sharing? Because sharing is intimate and transparent and personal. Like relating. As in relationship.

I’m writing the book (and this blog) because I want others to experience the relationship I have—the relationship all Mystic’s have—the intimate commingling with the Divine.

The book’s not for posterity. It’s for love.

  1. What dave said is a very good thing. I don’t know what it is you need, but it seems to me that if you do something because you need something else it will become a burden at some point. If you do something because you want to share something precious it tends to make you more happy. But there are of course things in between. You live on the otherside of the world, but what you are doing is helping me in my personal development. That is great. I hope the good things you give will return to you.

  2. ‘Compassion’ is probably a good word. The intimate commigling whit the divine and compassion for those who are not there yet, struggling with their lives. Every extra step that you can inspire for those creatures is a thankful gift. being a good person will help you And others.
