I write. So I'm a writer. I intend to post two thousand essays or
more to this
Conversations For Transformation
thereby attracting two million views or more. Because I'm a
prolific writer, people assume I'm also a voracious
reader. They send me lists of books and suggestions of articles to
read based on what they assume would interest me. Some people ask
me to recommend the books I've liked from which they'd get the
experience of transformation.
It's often assumed all writers read a lot. But I don't read much.
No I don't condemn / disparage the value of reading. It's that out

up in my mouth
ie in the spoken / listened
- and by that I mean in the spoken / listened
I don't disdain reading. But I'll bet big money authentic
alive genuine thrilling transformation
shows up when we're in spoken / listened
in-the-flesh fully-and physically-present conversations with you.
And I'm the first to admit even my own essays are but
approximations to an experience of transformation
being around you
(each of the essays is close but no cigar).
There's something else I have to say about that, which is this: not
reading much, compels me to come up with the material by ... my ...
Self rather than draw from a space already filled with
others' ideas. It keeps me on track to
material and the distinctions, for my Self"
rather than merely regurgitating that which is already written.
Distinguishing this distinction is arguably your most
unique gift to humanity (certainly to me) for which I've never been
able to thank and / or acknowledge you sufficiently or enough
because my own astonishment at realizing the enormity of what you
unerringly make available, keeps on getting in my way.
