How Was this Book Written?

Chapter Fifteen

I have been working on this book for eighteen months in a very off and on sort of way. It is a story where the words appear in their own time rather than anything I consciously do. I can sit at the computer and sometimes there is a something to share and at other times there’s nothing. What appears is literally as new to me as it might be for you as I don’t think about the words and each burst of writing has the energy of its own directing the topic.

I have learnt so much from this exercise that even if no one saw this document, the development of it has been totally worthwhile from my point of view. I only share here what I have directly experienced, not as an intellectual exercise in philosophy but as an insight into the current reality I live and some of the challenges I went through to arrive at this point.

I don’t set myself up as a teacher with any set of practices to follow to replicate my path even if you wanted to. I mostly have no idea of how or why the changes that have occurred have done so and this book is presented only as a description of one person’s journey of discovery.

In editing these words, I notice that I mix up the use of “I” and “you” sometimes. In many of these instances, it wasn’t my intention to lecture you or take the role of a teacher. I think this has happened because I don’t have a strong grasp of the concept “me”, so I often default to “you” as a result.

The pages that have been published will most likely be altered as I re-read them and I intend to add more content if my current urge to share continues.

Thank you again for joining me on this journey.
