My sister has a title for people who know everything – Oh Swami Guru on the Mountain Top. My family – all members of the Swami Guru on the Mountain Top assembly – has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to creative energy and so I dedicate this section to them, because without their little nuggets of wisdom and encouragement I could not continue.
Pay close attention to what those close to you are saying, because they might know something you don’t and believe it not they’re in a better position to evaluate your work than you are.
The first nugget comes from Oh Swami-Guru sister. She says “Write as though no one is watching and no one will read it, not even yourself. Write it and leave it for a week before reading it”.
Perhaps if I followed this advice I might not feel so self-conscious about seeing my own words on the page.
