After a long hiatus, the flow in this department (this website) is moving again!

I once bought a card that said, “Sometimes, the path that will bring you the most joy will need some clearing.” I still have that card, sitting on my desk in full view. But now I might add, “Sometimes the path you are already on will need some clearing!”

Since I wrote the last blog, there have been quite a few obstacles that needed clearing! But the one most pertinent to this website is the ending page of Little Star and Eliore. I really only intended to write three books, period. But I have to say, the ending that landed in the book is not a suitable ending. I feel that the reader is just left hanging. “Then what?”

If you have every tried writing, you will know, that sometimes things present themselves from within you with such absolute and fervent presence, that there is NO going against it.

And why did the book have to end like that? Because underlying these stories is a current of Spiritual Truth. This truth is not representing any particular religion, but is in line with the truths and insights of Ancient Wisdom. And the truth is, despite Eliore’s persistent and headstrong desire to find the Mother-of-Us-All (to get what she wants), she did not connect with her. She could not be allowed to connect with her in that way. If she did it will just be a Santa Claus story. Fiction entirely. All the beings, energies and intelligences that exist in ‘otherworldliness’, are simply not given to us at our command.

You may have noticed that the books address in sequence, the growing consciousness and earthly experience of the child. So now that I have come to the point when one more book will need to be added, I feel I want to address that content to an older child…maybe 8 to 12. I think this book might have to deal with some very difficult things – but in the line of Spiritual Truth.

So the clearing that has had to happen was not in a physical sense, but for me to come to terms with these realities emotionally, artistically, and spiritually. Further, to consider the needs, the orientation, the interest of an older age group that can understand more. Even for me to consider the format of a book for an older child. I think even for me to have the courage to try this!

So this hiatus has been the long gestational period of coming to terms with an approach to his last book. (Not at all finished).

Clearing the path.
