That’s probably why only a few people will actually ever hear them. They DON’T offer QUICK RESULTS, INSTANT SUCCESS, or 5 SIMPLE STEPS!!! In fact, in the judgment of the publishing industry: there’s nothing NEW about these stories. (But, there are 1,000’s of books out there that do offer all of those things. If that’s what you are looking for, you are sure to find it!)
My stories DON’T help you SATISFY YOUR DESIRES or FULFILL YOUR DREAMS. In fact, they teach you to lay aside your worldly desires and dreams as you journey on the path of spiritual awareness. I know this is not a popular message. I know that only a few are interested in hearing what my stories have to teach.The Truth is, the stories I’m telling are about pain, grief, loss and the hard work of growing to be a more spiritually aware being: work that might take lifetimes to accomplish. These stories delve into the heart of life’s suffering and expose it: raw and throbbing, longing for healing. These stories weren’t written for everyone to hear—they are for the Listeners: the ones who are no longer seeking and striving, those who are tired and ready to give up, and those who are simply quiet now, waiting for guidance.
The SECRET message behind my stories is simple: hold on—everything will be all right; everything is perfect in its own way. However, be forewarned that you will not avoid pain on this path. In fact, when you are spiritually aware you will be even more attuned to the suffering of this planet and the entire Universe. But, you will have compassion, wisdom and equanimity large enough to hold all of the agony you encounter. If you are still reading this, perhaps you are a Listener. If so, know that you are not alone on your path. You can listen to or download one of my stories: “Sixty Miles to Paradise”, by opening the Listen page. May you, too, discover Paradise in the journey.
