Where We’re At

It’s been a while since I last wrote so I just wanted to let you know where we’re at with the new book. It is basically finished. Rough first draft going into a second reading by me and a few other trusted sets of eyes for feedback. Not quite ready for professional editing but getting there.

The process for this is so different from my first book which basically wrote itself. There it was a matter of just listening and taking dictation. While a good bit of listening and taking dictation is true for this book, it is much more of a collaborative effort. With this book, I had no real idea where I was heading and each new development unfolded in quite miraculous ways. At least for me. And it still is.

I began writing near the winter solstice of 2017. It is now June of 2019. I’m hoping to have this published before the end of this year but this next phase is grueling as I have no talent on the publishing side of this venture. Most likely it will be self-published through Amazon’s service again but that has changed dramatically since my first book too. So, it’s a whole new ballgame for me.

Finally…this book is a big step into new territory for me and I’ll admit to being a bit…uncomfortable…claiming this new space. But you know? I think that is the way of the world right now. All of us, in one way or another, are being challenged to embrace the discomfort of transformation. To dare to push the boundaries of what we perceive as “reality.” Because in the words of a wise tunesmith, “The real world is really unreal.”

Game on. I’ll drop another note along with way letting you know where I’m at in this midwifing of my new book. Thanks for being there.

Kamaloka – The positive develops out of the negative (2 of 3)

Sometimes the concepts Rudolf Steiner propose are challenging but stick with this one. The book I am working on will add a piece that will benefit the so-called dead.

The great Rudolf Steiner Quotes Site

If you have lived here between birth and death with many hundreds of men, these men have experienced something through you. But here in physical life you cannot feel that which those others felt and experienced through you, you only experience what they make you go through. After death this is reversed, and it is essential that we should experience everything in this review which others have suffered through us. Thus we undergo the effects of the last earth existence, and the task of these years really lies in our experiencing them.

Now, while we are undergoing these effects, the experience is transformed in us into forces, and it happens in the following manner: Suppose I have offended a man, who has thereby suffered bitterly. During Kamaloka I now experience this bitterness myself. I go through it as my own experience. And while I now experience it, it makes good…
