Best Selling Author

I told myself I wasn’t going to write on my blog this morning..told myself I was going to relax on my leather couch and enjoy my morning coffee..savor my strong coffee while my kids slept..before I had to get them up for school.. I always get up a few hours before them.. I have researched that this is a trait of successful people ;)

But I got to thinking..about how many people in my local professional community call themselves best selling authors.. of course it just sounds good on LinkedIn..and it is a resume; self professed slight of hand.. These are the ( successful ) people in the organizations that have basically banded me from joining them due to the ( sexual content of my book ) because obviously my book is better LOL… and they wouldn’t want me to actually reach media and become an actual best selling author.. past their dribble.. most of them are just stealing from other’s who have written books before them about success and the steps of success.. copying from men like Richard Brandson… or ( Stealing like Artists ) from books like the Secret.. Just love their terminology.. ” Stealing like Artists ” Jerks..

But to really put it into perspective.. ( I just love perspective ) to take away from the smoke and mirrors of their organizations..and groups.. where they all talk each other up ( lie to each other ).. Kelowna is a little tiny fishbowl compared to the entire world.. and if you have made it big in Kelowna.. well really your nothing new at all.. because to make it big in Kelowna you have to pretend to be someone else.. so when they use the terminology of being ” authentic ” it’s truly laughable.. they dress the same.. talk the same speal..because it’s an old sales man’s trick.. it’s like selling knives out of the back of your truck.. or selling a $100 vacuum for $800 bucks..

So what does a REAL best selling author look like.. well.. how about Stephen King or J.K. Rowling..because guess what  ? you all actually heard about them! ..they are on the world stage.. because even being a best selling self published author on Amazon.ca; really in reality, it means shit!.. SHOW ME THE MONEY!.. get a grip!

In my second to last post I wrote about what successful people think and do..the actions that they take.. a part of having reason.. is to face reality..if you don’t start from directly were you are at.. by the ground on which you stand.. you cannot change or effect that reality.. so if you are full of shit.. calling yourself what you are not.. you will always be full of shit.. good luck changing that.. you will be the small fish in a small fishbowl with other small fish…because you refuse to see the small fishbowl.. you will always be trapped.. your not going to risk taking a leap of faith and jumping from the small fishbowl into reality or the great big sea..because that’s just scary.. it’s way more comforting to believe your own bullshit and the bullshit of others around you saying ” Wow.. we are really big fish!”

So here is my reality.. I am not a best selling author at all.. I can’t swim with the other little fishies even.. they don’t like my bright colors.. I don’t fit in..and I don’t go along with the vacuum sales man’s speal .. I keep it real.. they don’t like that at all.. I see an elephant in the room.. I say ” Elephant’s in the room ” they say ” Don’t come to our networking groups.. we can’t make you not come..but we really don’t want you there ” poor little fishies..

But here is the thing.. I know I am in a deficit with my book.. I have rocked some people’s reality in the little fishbowl of Kelowna BC by offering up a world view of world problems.. the problem that I show is the solution.. but they love pre-packaged processed messages that they can steal like artists from..

Me as Venus. From my book ( The Goddess, an Expression of the Divine Feminine ) about women’s empowerment through the emancipation of their sexuality.. repression caused by religious dogma

The point is.. I am facing reality.

What did I do that was so different that it is offensive to them.. I wrote about book about women’s sexuality.. I wrote about my own sexuality as an example.. I used professional photography in the book..and am the model in the book as the Goddess Archetypes.. and I am topless just like the classic paintings of the Goddess..of Venus and such.. and because no famous person did it before me..because it is my own creation.. it makes me a slut LOL

here is the link to my failure.. my book.. the best thing I ever failed at.. the failure that I love.. I love my baby anyway.. even if other’s don’t ( yet )

Break Through

He kept asking me ” If you could have one break through in your life right now what would it be?”

I realize now he is the one who needs to break through his own fears.. funny how projection works.. funny how he was afraid to show me his soul while I was having the courage to offer him my heart and soul wide open..

I don’t need seminars to tell me how to be brave.. I just jump in feet first.. just like I am the first one in the lake..the first one to swim in freezing cold spring waters while other’s my age watch amazed..

They need the to ” Break on through to the other side ”

They have organizations that profess to be for diversity .. but they exclude me due to their prejudice and fears.. they claim to be compassionate and philanthropist.. while in private messages and behind closed doors they are cruel.

They use the press to promote their fake spiritual trends and organizations.. the press it’s self being plastic as hell.. just like them.

They say they support the Goddess Movement holding full moon circles while being to fearful .. terrified of women’s sexuality.. their spirituality watered down..nothing real here.. nothing but pasteurized and purified ..bullshit spirituality.. the sacred made profane by washing it out ..to make it safe for even the fake and flaky .. there is no medicine here.. no Priestesses .. no Goddesses.. just a bunch of women playing it safe.. not realizing that being called a cunt and whore .. were actually complements to the Goddess.. many 1000s of years ago.. the cunt the yoni.. the sacred whore the bridge to heaven.. the passage of the initiation .. the way to life..

They all just skim the surface.. too terrified to really touch the cloak of the divine.. to lift the veil ..to open Pandora’s BOX.. ( they will not understand that metaphor )

They search for the magic in safe and structured places.. because they lack in faith and character..to be about it..to really be the change..

They will not go deeply into the darkest uncharted waters of the soul.. they will not go because others will not go with them.. to find the pearls of wisdom..

The wisdom isn’t found walking the path that others follow.. ( how they love to follow the easy path ).. the wisdom is found were Angels fear to tread.. were only GODS go..

My break through is this… I have the pearl..

And sometimes it is best not to ” Cast your pearls upon swine ”

So let them have their pretty surface organizations.. let them post what they wish they had the courage to do..

And I will keep doing it.. while they gather in groups of spiritual darkness…being to fearful to go deep to find the light within the dark night of the soul..

It’s the only way to find the treasure..to not just say you are about it..but to be it..

With that I hold the Golden Laurel..
