Your welcome.

I've watched over and over with awe the conversations between K and Bohm. And I've have read whatever I can of both. Mostly, I love the process of inquiry that they both bring to life in their relationship. The questions seem to just flow from each other in the context of the learning. It provides a glimpse for me of possilities.

Your pulling much of this thinking together in your posts allows for better understanding for me and a different lens of perspective. Love it!

I am reminded of a phrase from a friend/colleague.

"If you don't know the difference between good advice and bad advice then no advice will help".

In my work as a CEO Peer Group Faciitator we have a rule that each member was forbidden to give advice that they were not competent to give. Can you imagine

how much conversation/noise that eliminated?

How would you lead your life if there were no "gurus" to tell you?

What is to be learned from this story if Ferriss cashes in on a top ten podcast? Are we stupid or what?

How about giving back all the $ that was essentially stolen from all those who he grifted.... with his advice?

Is an "interlude" the same as a "pause"? On another note I am reminded of Tom Friedman in "Thank You for Being Late" making the distinction between humans on pause and computers. Computers stop working while human start working. By that I took it to me the work of actually being human.

Good on you for getting started.

I am an old fart who has found writing and publishing to be daunting much of my life. Most days I am immobilized and do not write. Every once in while I'll surface. David Whyte, I think, poetically wrote about writing to find your voice. I hope that you'll find yours and write. You have one more follower cheering you on.

I like being phsically being alone. It is different from loneliness whcih for me is all about being disconnected. Disconnected in this sense could be from self, each other, earth, ideas etc. If we refocus away from self to our collective consciousness then we are never truly alone. Indeed, I am told that the original root for the word "alone" was "all plus one". Alone but never lonely.

Yesterday my Medium meanderings took me to a post that advocated "not" writing a book. Today my first Medium feed was yours about how to start writing a book. A mentor of mine , Lee Thayer's, thought on advice seems relevant "if you don't know the difference between good advice and bad then no advice will help".
