Inner-Views Of An Inspirational Author With Heart
A few people have asked me if I expect my new book "The Joys of Live Alchemy," to break all book sale records at Point of Life. Well, I feel it is the best book I have written so far. A book that explains how to live without worry and anxiety, despite the experts who claim it is impossible. That said, I have no expectations of any sort, so if the book starts out from zero, any growth in stature is a bonus. Since the book is alchemy that will work only in the minds of those who truly seek authentically inspired success, without preconditions of the ego, it may take a while before it catches on with most of the public.
Maybe the book is very happy to remain quiet for the time being. After all, it is only of interest to people who are willing to make the required changes that are impossible for normal people to make. Since most people cannot break free of their conditioned minds strong will power of dominance, it is normal for them to ignore anything that can dislodge their ego's alien hold on their minds and bodies.
If that clarification was not enough of a reason why normal people may not buy the book, I will not be hiring any PR, no marketing and no adverts, Therefore, not too many people will know it exists. As for help from the kind media, I think, nay, correction, I know that I have alienated every media book editor I've contacted in the USA and UK by my outspokenness ... so no rave reviews coming from that direction.
Lots of mainstream magazine editors tell me I'm not their cup of tea.... Well, my flavors are without refined academic sugary fluff that is bad for the souls health, but my teachings do contain lots of wholesome spice that is beneficial for the mind and body ... so no rave reviews from them.
A few so called spiritual editors think I'm too judgmental...well, I might agree with them about being too mental, but I'm not the judge in their lives, their own body cells and immune systems are ... so no rave reviews from them.
Academic journal editors think I am (to use an oxford professors recent description of me) an intellectual pigmy ... Compliment for every season to me, by intellectual folks who embrace a code of education that dictates "Its not our job to teach morals" I reply to them..."Up your nose with a rubber hose" ...so no rave reviews from that standoffish habitat.
I am rejected by most religious editors as my Love & Joy taints their ridged dogmas... So no rave reviews from that unapproachable location
Thankfully there are a few editors who do like my approach to life and understand I can never take anything too seriously. Even if I achieve nil book sales, it will still make me laugh at the experience of it all.
As for future projects, I am putting the finishing touches to another new book titled "Worry Causes Wrinkles" slated for publication in the fall... I have another book almost competed for the winter. No title yet, but "Seriousness is a Killer" springs to mind as I write these words. There are another dozen or more books waiting their turn to blossom in my mind. The seeds are already planted.
Why Do I Write...Just to Be-the-Cause of Love & Joy.
Because I can live without the aid of guru financial experts or sharp medical quacks,
Because I can earn enough money from the stock market by the philosophy I have explained in "The Joys of Live Alchemy" and "Invest With A Genius"
Because there are a few authentic people in this world who I can call my friends,
Because a true spirit guides my path,
Because my soul is who I am,
Because God is my best buddy and gives me all the advice I continually seek,
Because of all the beauty in nature,
Because I reside in the Celestial Garden of Eden,
I need not fret about zero book sales or lack of recognition by a free-less, un-spirited media,
I live in a world that is locked in intellectual refined imprisonment, that cannot admit to its own identity, but happily, I am not part of it,
I thank God I'm not normal in the eyes of an erroneous society, but natural in the eyes of heavenly Angels,
Spirits forces keep me true, in a simple lifestyle, that embraces Love & Joy,
A Love & Joy that makes every action I take.... A Walk in Paradise Park,
And who could ask for any more.
