What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I honestly believe that the subject matter of "Stars of Glory: An Odyssey in Reality" is profoundly important to the knowledge of humanity. This, my contribution to the human condition is what gives me a sense of joy with the writing and publishing of this book. I've tossed the proverbial bread upon the waters. Maybe in a few hundred years it will have a beneficial place in our world. Spirituality is a huge part of the human experience, and I simply had to share the knowledge. I really couldn't ultimately just hold it in. Letting it out gave me a sense of personal release and joy.
When did you first start writing?
The story of my youthful experience of being initiated into spirituality and prophetic experiences was something that I felt I should write about from nearly the time that it began. However the stresses of such experiences left deep and sore scars in my own spirit. I tried to write about it off and on over the following years, but I just couldn't. When I read back what I had written, there was an element of angst and bad vibes emanating from me. I realized that it would take some time for my own personal recovery until I could write about those events constructively. I spent many hours refining my thoughts and written communication skills by actively engaging in online forums in order to be prepared to write this book. Finally after about 20 years after the initial event, my spirit was calm and I began to write about it in 2007. I was on the road driving a semi truck and in my spare time I would write an episode or two. The time served me well as I even managed a sense of humor to pervade my writing about those traumatic spiritual experiences.
This account conveys the experiences of myself as a young man being visited by spiritual beings. This odyssey touches upon many themes of spirituality, psychology, the nature of existence and reality, depicted in real life events. Both horrific and comforting, this account sheds light on prophetic and spiritual mysteries. A psychological goldmine.
