Recently at one of my book signings a scholarly gentleman approached my table. There was no eye contact being he was drawn to the title of my newest book The Book of Wisdom: The Age of Mindfulness. After reading the title out loud he chuckled slightly and said “a book on wisdom, in such a small book.” Then he looked up at me as I smiled confidently and responded yes within this book. He wanted to say something I could tell but instead he smile politely and walked away.
He had all the information he could mentally digest that is, in his perceived world of understanding; so he left. This is why I refrain from insisting, convincing or persist that people understand, comply or even purchase my writings just out of politeness. Rather I choose to share the simple truth (keyword simple) but then again, truth is not often easily digested. Know that just because a topic has been misconstrued and expected to be complicated, doesn’t mean it needs to be explained or written in a complicated fashion to advance the attention it deserves.
Getting back to the scholarly gentlemen’s comment regarding wisdom within “such a small book,” allow me to elaborate. I was being kind by writing a 206 page book on wisdom, with an emphasis on today’s marketing viability. Also the title states ‘the age of Mindfulness” pertaining to today’s societal norms, not just old Testament bibliographic referencing of the living word of God.
In total honesty, all of wisdom can be explained in one paragraph, expressed in a matter of seconds and ultimately shown by example; instantaneously! Here’s what I’m saying, wisdom can be written in one word and again let’s be honest, if I were to write that word, print it on a piece of paper and bond it between the front and back cover page of my book, it would’ve been perceived as a failed joke. Only thing is that one word, as simple as it is, would have been the absolute truth. Think about it, losing weight is simple if we except truth. How to get six pack abs are simple, if we except truth and how about this, making it to heaven is extremely easy (when it’s our time) if we except truth. Do we really need millions upon millions of dollars spent each year, specifically targeting a market on how to lose weight? Apparently so (hence market viability) being most have not accepted correctness. Moreover, do I need to write a thousand page book on wisdom to a society that has developed an media related attention span? Not at all, people want their wifi fast, their coffee hot and their news live as it develops!
In today’s society, we’ve been conditioned to expect a certain value per expectation times ratio. We want to be captivated, convince and sold quickly on subjects, objects or projects, being it relates to less decision making time, which equates to more play, lust and relaxation time for the duped consumer. For instance, how many times can we be convinced that the next new trend in smartphones, are actually adding any true value to our lives?
The day the powers that be develop a phone that has an anti-gravitational mechanism, which levitates off the earth’s magnetic surface, preventing dropped phones from cracked screens I’ll be convinced. Or maybe just develop a crack/shatter-free phone, that in itself would be at least on the verge of interesting. I know both phones are possible, being I’ve seen this in a vision but by that time, many will be restored back to telepathy, resulting in the vast fall of cellular-human tracking *(CHT). That’s right I said it, being I’m not worried about certain people actually reading my material, and that’s totally fine!
In conclusion, just be mindful when it comes to shared knowledge, new information and or the availability to spiritually learn and discern for yourself, least you very well may walk away from truth in the matter of this reality. By the way, if you’re that certain type of person that’s been caught up or curious regarding that one word, describing wisdom mentioned prior; COME ON! I’ve written it seven times already. *All will come to pass, within the light.
God bless your journey.
