Interview with David Knight

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I think that Mark and his team have developed a wonderful opportunity and platform for both new and established authors to share their work. For me, it provides the ability to distribute books to a wider audience quickly and professionally ... a great asset indeed!
What are you working on next?
Having just completed the third part of the I am I: The In-Dweller of Your Heart series, the logical next step is going to be accumulating and revising them into their various subject matters and one large volume! This will enable the reader to focus upon particular areas of spiritual development (or general concerns in their life) which they feel they need to concentrate upon.
Can the 52 lessons in your book relate to the number of weeks throughout the year, and if so would it be a good idea for anyone reading this book to apply one lesson per week to their lives?
Absolutely! This can help sometimes because it can give a structure to someone's development and understanding. By reading one per week it continually lets that lesson 'sink in’ ... so you can feel, live and share it. That said, because we are all very emotional beings there will surely be times when a particular event occurs in your life and are wondering what God would say to help you on the matter ... If you are unable to turn within your own heart and 'self' for whatever reason ... pick up the book and randomly choose a lesson ... as truth and love always seems to find a way to give you what you need when you need it.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life and love! We can all arise from 'sleep' and we should not stop until the 'goal' is reached ... but perhaps the question here could be, what 'goal' do you feel is the most important to you, and why?
When you are speaking from the first person, who is it that is speaking through you?
God is! One could also say, that it is the God 'within' me ... my own Divine essence, or that ’LOVE’ is talking too! (A great question- thanks for this one!)
Where do you believe that someone could find the spiritual guidance and education that will resonate and create a strong and positive connection within them?
Everywhere and anywhere ... as love is the strongest force in all Creation. I think we are all guilty of actually trying to 'seek' the truth with our objective senses like our sight. The problem with this is that we are often 'unfocused' and we don't see the real / bigger picture. When we actually focus, and try to use the lens of our hearts ... (with our body, mind and soul in unison), truth is revealed much more easily. This is because, when you place all the pieces of the jigsaw together the real picture of love emerges ... and when something feels right inside you, it probably is.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I guess it’s the symbolism in the text. Many people comment about how the description and guidance of, say, nature, images, scenarios and scenes actually reflect upon one's own feelings, which then mirrors and shines the truth to each individual.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An interesting question! I could put a twist on that, and say … happy! LOL!
I think that when I was really young, I wanted to be a pilot. Perhaps that really was a dream, because I am not much bigger than a hobbit, and am not too great with heights ha ha.
What is your writing process?
I really should have a structure like ‘famous’ authors I guess! For me and lots of people it’s a case of juggling and fitting it in one’s busy lifestyle. I would like to say I have a set time each day but I don’t. For me it’s like having a pull and tug of the heart strings … it’s like God saying to me, time to write now David - bizarre as it sounds or seems. Sometimes, if I hear or listen to relaxing / gentle music … or am in a quiet moment, something triggers inside my heart, as if inspiring me to put pen to paper. As this occurs, I tend to write for about 1 and half hours, then, when time allows, it takes me about 2 further hours to type up what has been transcribed through me.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the readers?
Well, often in life, we judge things and can imagine their 'worth' , by how much something costs ... but again, thats just the same ‘monkey’ mind of ours, which tries to dictate (and imply) that we can only see the future by judging the past. So, whether you buy this book or any others, one should remember that whatever experience comes into your life … if it resonates within your heart, just let it flow to, through and from you!
