And, I think they’re right.
Nolan Pillay wants me to speak at his Soul+Mind+Body&Wealth Summit on 22 July. He wants me to fill the ‘soul’ slot.
I think that small piece of text I wrote a while back, called What If Hollywood Doesn’t Call. A Fractured Monk’s Guide to Enlightenment gave him some hope that I know what I’m talking about. I don’t, and anyone who puts ‘Enlightenment’ in the title of their book is probably a bit of a poser.
If you’ve read any of my texts you’ll probably agree … I am a poser. ᕙ(⌣◡⌣”)ᕗ
A poser of questions that is.
I ask the hard spiritual and philosophical questions that I wrestle with every day, and these hopefully make people think on something for more than five seconds.
If you’ve been exposed to any of my writing, you’ll know that I struggle to navigate this life eloquently and elegantly. And, when it comes to life, I’m definitely Hemingway: “I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of shit. I try to put the shit in the wastebasket.”
On this journey that I’ve been sent on, every now and again I write one page of masterpiece. And, when I do, for a brief glorious moment, I feel that I’m closer to enlightenment.
I’d like to share some of these ‘englightened’ perspectives with you at the summit on 22 July.
I’m going to cover concepts like:
>>> Reach beyond your grasp.
>>> Light up a room when you enter it, not when you leave it.
>>> Love and relationships are the ends, everything else is just means.
>>> You’re the blink that matters.
>>> You’re a masterpiece creating a masterwork.
Some of these ideas may help you navigate your life, both personally and professionally, a lot more elegantly and eloquently.
And, don’t worry, I’m not the only one presenting at the summit (otherwise it wouldn’t be a summit, now, would it?). There’s an awesome line up of truly exceptional experts who have great insights for you. Check them and the summit out here https://qkt.io/8e6ay2
