Interview with Craig Holliday

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To allow the Divine to write through me.....I feel as if I am the student and an incredible wisdom is coming through me. I feel humbled to be in this position, and deeply honored at the same time.
It is an ongoing meditation a spiritual practice.
What do your fans mean to you?
I see them as a reflection of my own self. I see the whole world in this way......I don't feel like there is any separation between me and them; when I write it is as if I am writing to my own self.
What are you working on next?
My second book looks at the deeper layers of enlightenment, at being embodied; at being a powerful and creative manifestation of the Divine.....And the more mystical side of enlightenment. In my first book, I tried to write only about the practical/down to Earth side of enlighenment, now I am writing more in terms of the mystical....

Adyashanti, Byron Katie, Pema Chodron, Jeff Foster, Scott Kiloby, Jon Bernie....
