Never force it and always believe in what you're writing about.

For about a year I had my own art column in a bi-weekly newspaper and writing about art came easily because I believed in the artists I wrote about and could truly appreciate their work. Writing my first book, Toxic Rainbows, was similar. I'd never written at length on the subject of philosophy or creativity, yet it all came with little effort because I cared deeply about the subjects and had my own experiences to guide me.

The flipside of this were the years I spent sitting in cafés forcing dialogue and trying to churn out plays that went nowhere because I was unfocussed and wrote from an untethered place that had no anchor to anything I knew personally. (less)

It was the extreme opposites of living pre- and post-internet and reflecting on the advantages and disadvanges of each and how we are profoundly effected by influences around us.

I began to take notice of everything that had changed just within my lifetime, from communication, diet, values and even our own identities and what we stood for. Having an advantage of viewing life pre- and post-internet was a window on the world that I needed to write about before it was forgotten or history rewritten.(less)

The Truth About Loss

Have you ever noticed how when some people suffer a loss, large or small, they often think that there was no ‘reason’ for it, as if actual reasoning had been spent on wondering why things play out in their lives in the way that they do? The thing is, nature doesn’t need to give you a reason, it just is.

Dealing with the pain of loss requires an elevated consciousness. It requires a...

“Sometimes when the Spirit of God was striving and calling so plainly, I would yield and say, 'Yes, Lord; I will go.' The glory of God came upon me like a cloud, and I seemed to be carried away hundreds of miles and set down in a field of wheat, where the sheaves were falling all around me. I was filled with zeal and power, and felt as if I could stand before the whole world and plead with dying sinners. It seemed to me that I must leave all and go at once. Then Satan would come in like a flood and say, 'You would look nice preaching, being a gazing-stock for the people to make sport of. You know you could not do it.'

Then I would think of my weakness and say, 'No; of course I cannot do it.' Then I would be in darkness and despair. I wanted to run away from God, or I wished I could die; but when I began to look at the matter in this way, that God knew all about me, and was able and willing to qualify me for the work, I asked Him to qualify me for the work. I ASKED HIM TO QUALIFY ME.”
