LIBERATE YOUR IMAGINATION
in answer to some questions...
Here are my own thoughts:
Is it Possible to Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul?
I believe in the case of Rob Brezsny it truly is...
He got his claim to fame in my very own home town of Santa Cruz, California writing a weekly astrology horoscope column for the local "Good Times" news letter.
His journey to Santa Cruz itself seemed destined and he fit right in with the unique energy all about this area. It was a time of spiritual adventuring and exploration.
He is now Nationwide doing just what he started out to do: Educating the mindless masses to explore their soul and grow spiritually using esoteric sciences and will.
Now 20 years later he is still wowing people with his often satirical wisdom and has authored several spiritual based books. Most recommended in my mind is this one:
PRONOIA IS THE ANTIDOTE FOR PARANOIA:
How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings
This book is a work in progress where YOU the reader are to participate in projects, adventures, and entertain seemingly "out of the box" thoughts and ideas. You write within the book itself your personal results of each section's adventures. The book actually causes you to grow and can be considered a path within itself.
I would highly recommend it's exploration by anyone with a heartbeat.
My personal advice: "Buy the book and Enjoy the ride..."
Here are just a couple short reveiws:
