Do not fear, there is always wine
if you are thirsty for love.
Do not fear, there is always water
if your lips are parched.
Do not fear your ruin, inside you
there is a treasure.
Open your eyes, for this world
is only a dream.
- Rumi, Persian Mystic Poet, 1207 - 1273
The wonderful aspect of my journey is that it is as REAL as you are ever going to get. In terms of a TV Reality show (which I am negotiating at the moment), MY little story leaves Survivor and all of those other YUK type programs WAAAY behind in the 'interest' stakes. Because what I am doing is new and sorta unique, it is difficult to convince TV executives and the like, that it will work. But as I am building and the Journey continues I have more credibility due to the book, poems, videos, website, daily blog and of course the exposure I have received through the traditional media with newspapers, magazines, radio interviews and the ACA prime time interview just prior to the Olympics coverage back in August. All of this stuff I talked about in my book "Working Backwards". I have created a very good FOUNDATION for "Let Me Tell You A Story" or "Once Upon A Time", huh?
Enter homelessness, soup kitchens, tents, broke, snakes, and the other stuff. Oh K. All pretty cooool so far. Then when I got jabbed up the blurter by Lucifer's pitchfork I cried out for HEEEEELP. And I got it in the form of Mister SomeOne Out-There. Now this was the start of ME. I found myself. But I mean I reeeeally found ME. So then I made a choice to re-invent myself seeing that I had found the new ME. Pretty simple philosophy really. I was going to do what I wanted to do and that was CREATE. So I began writing books and poems and songs and designing new social networks and other stuff I love to do. My BELIEF levels are through the roof. I just worked out what I believe I am capable of, and then, well you know what I'm up to. BUT, the fuuuneee, strange thing is this:
...........................well it makes me smile, just like I'm doing now trying to explain...............
Hmmmmmm..... , I'll keep working on it, so keep watching this journey of mine. It's going to make you shake your head in disbelief. But as I have said from the beginning, find your ME, then you will KNOW????????
