The International Writers Magazine: Joy
Medicinal Strengths of Forgiveness. by Michael Levy
Inner-Views of an Inspirational Author With Heart.
every day in our lives, if we are out and about, we will run into
people who are unpleasantness, obnoxious and downright nasty.
It could be on the roads, in the supermarket, in the workplace
or any other location where we come into contact with people with
differing views. Perhaps those people see us as unpleasantness,
obnoxious and downright nasty and maybe sometimes we are, knowingly
or unknowingly, the agitators.
If we hold on to
the nasty comments of other people or our own, over time, it will swell
into a river of negative thoughts. Therefore, it is best to forgive
and forget any past unpleasantness. It is also very important to forgive
ourselves for any transgressions our over emotional ego's may sometimes
commit. Both forms of forgiving (self and other people) are very important
if we are to remain healthy and dis-ease free. A mind filled with resentments
and hates will fill the body full of cancer, heart failure and
other debilitating illnesses over a period of years .....So forgiveness
is a powerful medicine and sometimes may be a hard pill to swallow.
Here is a view from an inspirational writers perspectives who has good
intent, but many times his over enthusiastic manner upsets many close-minded
A few people have asked me if I expect my new book "The Joys of
Live Alchemy," to break all book sale records at Point of Life.
Well, I feel it is the best book I have written so far. A book that
explains how to live without worry and anxiety, despite the experts
who claim it is impossible. That said, I have no expectations
of any sort, so if the book starts out from zero, any growth in stature
it is a bonus. Since the book is alchemy that will work only in the
minds of those who truly seek authentically inspired success, without
preconditions of the ego, it may take a while before it catches on with
most of the public.
Maybe the book is very happy to remain quiet for the time being. After
all, it is only of interest to people who are willing to make the required
changes that are impossible for normal people to make. Since most people
cannot break free of their conditioned minds strong will power of dominance,
it is normal for them to ignore anything that can dislodge their ego's
alien hold on their minds and bodies.
If that clarification was not enough of a reason why normal people may
not buy the book, I will not be hiring any PR, no marketing and no adverts,
Therefore, not too many people will know it exists. As for help
from the kind media, I think, nay, correction, I know that I have alienated
every media book editor I've contacted in the USA and UK by my candid
outspokenness ... so no rave reviews coming from that unapproachable
hung, drawn and quarter.
"Many have made a trade of delusions and false miracles, deceiving
the stupid multitude."_ Leonardo da Vinci
Lots of mainstream magazine editors articulate to me I'm not their cup
of tea.... Well, my flavors are without refined academic sugary fluff
that is bad for the souls health, but my teachings do contain lots of
wholesome spice that is beneficial for the mind and body ... so no rave
reviews from that aloof neck of the dark woods.
"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
_ Mark Twain
A few so called spiritual editors imagine I'm too judgmental...well,
I might agree with them about being too mental, but I'm not the judge
in their lives, their own body cells and immune systems are ... so no
rave reviews from that frosty ad-ministration.
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it. _ Marcus
Academic journal editors think I am (to use an oxford professors recent
description of me) an intellectual pigmy ... Compliment for every season
to me, by intellectual folks who embrace a code of education that dictates
"Its not our job to teach morals" I reply to them..."Up
your nose with three Ho! Ho!Ho's!" ...so no rave reviews from that
"To repeat what others have said, requires education; to
challenge it, requires brains." _ Mary Pettibone Poole.
I am rejected by most traditionalistic, hell and damnation, religious
editors, as my Love & Joy taints their ridged dogmas... So no rave
reviews from that unapproachable location
"I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated
sufficiently to reason incorrectly." _ Michel de Montaigne
Thankfully there are a few editors who do like my approach to life and
understand I can never take anything too seriously. Even if I achieve
nil book sales, it will still make me laugh at the experience of it
My Jewish name is Menacha, which means to forgive. I may kid around
with negative people and sometimes speak my mind about their negative
approach to their readers...But I wish them all well and they should
all live a prosperous life in love & joy despite their inner Goliaths.
I also forgive myself if I seem to be a little "over-the-top"
to other editors. Joy-filled spiritual enthusiasm is not easily contained
in one brain box.
As for future projects, I am putting the finishing touches to another
new book titled "Worry Causes Wrinkles" slated for publication
in the fall... I have another book almost competed for the winter. No
title yet, but "Seriousness is a Killer" springs to mind as
I write these words. There are another dozen or more books waiting their
turn to blossom in my mind. The seeds are already planted... Good Gameâ€Good
Game! For even if I never sell one book, I can never be a victim of
seeking fame and fortune...I am a smiling victor of contentment, embraced
in Gods love & joy
You see, the success in writing books with true meaning is just to write
them. If nobody reads them, then it is their loss, not the authentic
authors. Eventually, who knows, they may be read by millions of people,
just as the old master paintings took time to "catch on" with
the public....Create something new from your heart and soul and don't
expect instant gratifications has always been one of my numerous universal
laws given to me by the ageless writer in the sky.
My past early work, selling cloth remnants in the street market of England
in appalling weather certainly trained me for the intense aggressive
responses and being passed over by the ivory tower dwellers.... They
may believe they are powerful and high-up in the media and academic
world, well perhaps they are in their minds, but the succulent fruits
of the forest don't stay on the trees to be eaten...they have to fall
to the ground to be enjoyed.
