It’s always hard to put your thoughts down on paper and then submit them to the world for consumption. You knowingly put yourself squarely on the tracks for the incoming judgement and criticism. I’m sure some readers will think I’m full of shit, others will think that I’m preaching, and I’m sure many will think I have a complex of being ‘holier than thou’.
Yet even as surely as I know the haters will snigger from the shadows, I just as surely know it will be impossible for them to read what I have to say without a seed being placed deep in their consciousness that when the time is right will begin to sprout into a greater self awareness, it is they who jump to judgement that I am eager to serve. So it is on that basis that I welcome them now and forever to the words I write.
I have written this blog to date as a means for me to organise my own thoughts and experiences and if someone else read it and drew benefit from it then great, if noone read it I wasn’t concerned as it had already served its primary purpose. Having said that, it always made me feel good when someone made contact with me and said they had enjoyed something I had written.
Up until now I have never written about any of my personal experiences, I’ve always written from an objective philosophical standpoint. I did this because I didn’t want to make it ‘all about me’ and wanted to more collate my own thoughts as I mentioned previously. I think it was also because I was worried about putting my personal experiences out there for fear of the potential ridicule. I’ve now decided to think differently.
The person I want to be doesn’t concern themselves with what others might think of them so I’ve decided ‘Fuck it, I’m writing it’. I’ve been on an amazing journey over the last few years and it’s getting pretty exciting right now. I don’t know where it will take me but I know the desired destination and I feel that this journey is worth documenting, for myself, for my children, and for anyone else who might take benefit from it. I’m going to start writing about the personal experiences I’ve had as well as those to come. I hope by doing so any philosophical conclusions I come to can be seen by the reader in light of the context my personal experiences have given them.
I now document this journey with the future intention of collating these thoughts and understandings for my boys should they decide to pursue the same destination on their own unique journey, I will often write as if I am addressing them specifically for that is the ultimate intention.
So with that said…I begin this blog on a new path, may the words that flow through me serve the greatest good of all who encounter them…
