Jay Kennedy

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I have been writing as far back as I can recall the ability to draw sounds onto paper. I am fascinated at the idea that sounds and mental imagery can be formed into symbols that resonate into the minds of those who may discover them. It is an amazing thing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well, it is a kind of memoir slash manuscript for the liberation of the mind and spirit. I am an American Indian that grew up at a time where it was better to pretend you were a different race in order to fit in. Secretly, I had cast aside religion and all such ideas when people around me were still saying "Jesus is coming back" and forcing a six year old to believe he would never experience life beyond adolescence because the Universe was ending. This helped to drive my belief in my self and the never ending pursuit of truth and excellence in life that did not depend on something outside of me. Interestingly enough, I became practically obsessed with religious and philosophical material and to date have consumed thousands of volumes from many traditions and authors. My years of training and teaching Martial Art brought me into contact with some great minds and expanded my library through the different Sciences. Neuroscience, physics, quantum mechanics, kinesiology, biology....You name it and I am infatuated. All of these influences have brought out a personal philosophy which has helped many of my friends and students and it is relayed, I hope, through this work.
