Comments21/03/2017 #19 Gerald Hecht#18 @Phillip Hubbell ahh...the mystery of the tryptych [sic]; I think that Francis Bacon (not the the natural philosopher --although he too may have made a similar metaphysical observation regarding the empirical/scientific method... but the post WWI artist --"Lost Generation Painter") said something along those lines --it may have been a different rationale; but it had to do with the fact that some of them started out as "stand alone" works...but then --once finished ...they couldn't stay that way...the oft repeated theme of philosophers and writers...a "three car train" in which yesterday, today, and tomorrow are sort of "in the same room" and the the whole thing is moving as a single unit...I found an interesting link about him at the Tate Gallery/Museum: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/francis-bacon-68220/03/2017 #18 Phillip Hubbell#17 @Gerald Hecht a funny thing...since I started out to write a single book, the titles ended up being backwards from how I would have done it had I wrote all of them before giving them titles. Standing Still should have been the first one and God's Motive the last one. Infinity Squared would still be in the middle but that's the nature of trilogies.20/03/2017 #16 Gerald Hecht#15 @Phillip Hubbell yeah, it's more difficult than one might think...the existing scenarios from the world's largest religions make it all seem so obvious...
...but maybe that's why the number of religions that have scaled up and out to such a tremendous magnitude...ain't all that many...AND, there is also some overlap between a few of of them!20/03/2017 #15 Phillip HubbellHaving created a religion myself, I commiserate with the effort to describe the death of the protagonist. Since my guy dies near the beginning and finds himself in the afterlife, I believe I came up with a pretty good process for getting from here to there. It even lent itself from naming book 3 “Standing Still.” Good luck.12/03/2017 #12 Gerald Hecht#11 @Pascal Derrien "And would these immortal Fathers of My Fathers Fathers...PHARAOHS THEMSELVES be here in Giza only to let this ...this...Moses --bite off their nose to spite their face?

I think that the reason the Abrahamic religions have so many...was just to "cover all possible ways of messing up"...if you start at Adam...by the time you get to Jacob's 12 kids; you already have a crowded stage, a shipwrecked ark, pillars of salt, enraged offspring of Esau...3 or 4 enslavements...and Moses is still just an infant abandoned by his mom --a lowly refugee/immigrant "dreamer" --in a picnic basket...in a state of complete da' nile.12/03/2017 #3 Jim MurrayI think your main characters should, sit face to face inside a long steel tube and read the Conmysticism bible (or brochure) to each other. The natural vibrating frequencies of their voices in the tube will cause their eyes to bulge their noses to bleed and, eventually, their heads to explode. It will be messy but effective. All you need is a real pithy Conmystical for them to go out on. It also has the advantage of working on the audio and visual levels. Talk about surreal.

Comments06/03/2017 #9 David B. GrinbergThanks for this inspirational buzz for writers and potential authors, Paul. I commend you on setting high goals. I always advise people to think big in setting their goals. It's better to aim high and miss than aim low and hit IMHO. Everyone should remember that becoming a best-selling author, while challenging, is never impossible.
Just recall JK Rowling and a long-list of other one-time "starving writers" who ultimately struck gold. It doesn't always happen overnight, but perseverance can pay big dividends. Good luck to all!

Comments16/02/2017 #31 Deb 🐝 HelfrichSimply profound, Pascal. I think that while others are responsible for putting on the locks, and should be held accountable, each person is the only locksmith that can chose to find & use the perfect key. We can call the professionals and they will cut the keys, but the unshackling is an inside job.16/02/2017 #26 Ken BoddieAs one door closes another ..... slams shut in our face! But .....
Do locked doors keep our feelings and emotions securely shut up inside, or prevent them from being shared?
Do locks prevent invasion or avoid others helping?
Have we temporarily lost the key, or thrown it away?16/02/2017 #21 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Pascal Derrien, I'm glad you are writing about it. I think (well I'm learning) to face our demons, fears etc... are part of the healing process. You have a way of writing where you don't sound like the victim (even though that would not matter to me) because you WERE a victim and I feel your pain in your writing. My husband will kill me for saying this but he was abused severely growing up and no, you don't get past it. I think his way of dealing with it was to try and block it. He's a type A, a workaholic and over the past 3-4 years he has finally been able to show more emotion around me and share feelings.. he will never be able to share like some men do. My mothers illness and death changed him over time. He told me she was the only mom he ever had. He said she took him under her wing when he was just a teenager and always treated him like a son. His mom is still alive but they aren't close. I know he loves her but not in the same way many men would love their moms. Thanks for sharing this and I'm sorry I went on about my husband.16/02/2017 #18 Helena Jansen van VuurenSjoe - how do you do that - stop me dead in my tracks!!

Comments07/02/2017 #2 Rod LoaderI want to explore it more @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, just not at the moment. These stories are written so I don't forget the novel I would love to write, following the lives of interesting characters.

Comments26/01/2017 #3 Rod LoaderI'll have another look at this chapter, @Dean Owen. I'm always open for improvement. As for a more detailed look at the Last Supper, it is coming in a future chapter. At this point in the story the focus is on the raw emotions like grief, regret and doubt. As time moves on, I will be using another disciple to recall the Last Supper (which is a large and important part) and relate it to Scripture, tradition and the events occurring. #226/01/2017 #2 Dean OwenWanting to be critical here as I think this project is seriously amazing and Part 1 was absolutely brilliant. Part 2 is good but perhaps needs a little work. I feel the Last Supper could be given a little more detail given it's significance, but then again I suspect you will be revisiting the Last Supper through the eyes of another disciple in a later episode. I feel I am watching a literary masterpiece unfold. Contemporary, but accurate and well researched.

Lá ela estava perto de sua janela na escuridão de seu presente olhando para o céu. No fundo, havia uma batalha contínua entre seu coração e seu cérebro.
Seu cérebro a fez perceber o quanto ela estava cansada de toda a luta que ela tinha atravessado nos anos anteriores e agora deve desistir e fugir do que ela está perseguindo, enquanto seu coração puro sabia o que ela realmente precisava, que era tomar um profundo Respiração se compor e depois voltar a sua força total e começar a partir de onde ela tinha deixado.
O perigo dentro dela a fez chorar, ela se perguntou por que aconteceu desta forma, por que ela não tinha ajuda e mãos de apoio? Por que a vida era uma jornada difícil cheia de lutas?
O que estava errado, havia algo de errado no que ela estava fazendo ou era uma viagem que ela precisava para viajar sozinha?
Naquela noite ela não dormiu, como ela poderia, sua paciência foi testada ela estava sentindo a dor eo medo do fracasso engolindo ela assim que ela percebeu que ela tomou um pouco de controle e começou a pensar em tudo.
Mesmo depois de horas de soluços ela teve a faísca, a faísca de trazer seu sonho à realidade para executar a visão que ela viu.
Ela sabia que poderia estar cansada, mas tinha forças para lutar contra as probabilidades, ela percebeu que esta noite ela experimentou como se sentia quando você desistiu e que não era o que ela estava procurando, não era pacífica nem estava se sentindo melhor do que quando Ela estava lutando.
Foi então quando ela percebeu que ela realmente queria era experimentar como se sente eo que acontece se não há desistir. Por esse tempo seu coração estava regozijando-se com sua vitória.
Pode ser uma noite cheia de terror, mas como o sol enviou os primeiros raios de luz alguém estava fresco como uma margarida e de volta para trabalhar em seus sonhos.17/12/2016 #11 Praveen Raj GullepalliVeey nice Sushmita! It is important to have the sense to sense the engulfing fear of failure before it is too late and take control at that moment. Both despair and hope are the workings of our mind. Courage and Intent are a heart thing. But what thought sparked that hope in the dead of night? What caused that leap of faith? :)

Wrongs of Mankind
O, this wide erroneous world
drenched by mankind’s rude behavior
Who’s qualified best to publish truth
or cares sadly for the miserable happenings?
Now, evil partitioned in countless records
which in unity battles the simple truth.
Yet, how man so arrogant and foolish
that reads not the damnation of wrongs.

Comments29/11/2016 #6 Camille Mari#4 I'm sorry about what happened with your dad's book. Your dad's publisher is the kind I don't like so much. I noticed on the Amazon page there is no Kindle version for your dad's book, which is very strange because it should be available (and or part of the contract), and cost no more money for you. I help authors with self-publishing and sometimes it can sound like a nightmare too, but it still cheaper and the way you want. Drop me an email if you need help with something.
#5 I agree. Self-publishing can be done very well and have a professional touch now.29/11/2016 #5 Phillip HubbellSelf publishing has come a long way since the days when authors had to print a bunch of books and store them in a garage. Print on Demand means that if someone orders a book from Amazon, Apple, Books-a-Million, Barnes and Nobel as examples they print one book and send it to the customer. Books are also available as eBooks in all these places and registered with Ingram Wholesalers. The editing is your task, the cover can be done professionally and the marketing is whatever you put into it. The standard publishers are great if you are a celebrity or a famous media personality.29/11/2016 #4 Harvey LloydGreat post. Anyone who is considering publishing a book either self or otherwise should consider your thoughts. My dad had a burning desire to take a story he had written into a published book. (https://www.amazon.com/Man-Called-Jesus-Thomas-Lloyd/dp/1939930448/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480437576&sr=8-1&keywords=a+man+called+jesus). He is retired and my brother and i decided this would be a great project for him. We funded the book through a regional publisher who we felt would add a personal touch with dad. It cost us about 8,000 US to get the box of 50 books and all the other bells and whistles.
My brother who is not as flexible as myself in communications had a nightmare with some of the online self-publishers. They pushed a lot of hope and dream but in the fine print the costs were astronomical. If the hope and dream part did come true the contract basically had you making money after the first million in sales.
Your advice is prudent and food for thought. Self-publishing is a learning adventure. Well worth the money we spent. All three of us learned a lot about publishing. I sense that i could evaluate the process with a little more wisdom now.29/11/2016 #2 Lisa 🐝 GallagherYou just gave me a great idea @Camille Mari! We are making homemade gifts for Christmas this year in honor of my mom (who was a very artsy/crafty woman. She made homemade gifts for all the adults over the last 15 years or so.

Comments30/11/2016 #26 Deb🐝 Lange#25 Yes @Tausif Mundrawala, most people do not know there is a disconnect. No-one is going around saying, 'I am disconnected from my body" . they are going around saying, "I am anxious, I am overwhelmed, i am busy, I can't find peace or happiness or my creativity." When we connect we can find peace in our body and mind, happiness in the simplest moments, creativity emerges and we can be the calm centre amidst the storm.29/11/2016 #22 Deb🐝 LangeYes @Tausif Mundrawala #19 all of our senses are working even if we do not notice and sense them as we have become so preoccupied with thinking rationally and with words. when we pay atttention to the other ways our bodies are making sense of the world we can integrate this knowledge with our thinking and generate better ideas, solutions, actions and be more aligned between what we think and say and what our body does. making the connection opens us to new knowledge that is waiting in the wings.29/11/2016 #20 Mohammed SultanI have read many books by writers I have never seen or known,but when it comes from you It becomes one of the most gratifying things I have ever sensed.One sometimes hear of a writer being a picture of events I have never encountered ,but you give me the sense of being the complete picture of all of us on Linked in and beBee.

Comments30/11/2016 #43 Robert Cormack#42 I'm sure instant gratification plays a role. We see movies were people write a book and ten minutes later (with a few dissolves), they're famous authors living in splendor. This is like couples thinking they're as funny together as Mork and Mindy. We lose a sense of reality and, therefore, expect this instant gratification. The whole idea of music and movies you can download in a minute, it all plays to the same theme, and it's reducing so much of the artistic quality. An artist friend of mine is quite proud of the fact that she produces a painting a day. My mother, an artist, produced maybe two paintings a year. Four of them hang in my house. I never grow tired of them (and not because they're my mother's). She spent the time learning, studying and perfecting. That's what you add to basic talent. Maybe we'll saturate the market with bad work. Let's hope that's when we change.30/11/2016 #42 Zacharias 🐝 VoulgarisI agree. Perhaps today's instant gratification mentality that plagues the world has something to do with this publishing frenzy. Also, the academic community's requirements don't help the situation either (publish or perish). Still, once the market gets saturated with low quality books, I'm sure we're going to see a change in perspective. Everyone can publish something nowadays; getting others to read and re-read what you've published is another story...30/11/2016 #41 Gerald Hecht#40 @Robert Cormack --lately I wonder if now...he lives on the bus...btw...he played here in Baton Rouge last month (a few days after learning that he'd won the Nobel)...and he played guitar again (on two songs!)...I haven't seen him play the guitar live since a show in Maryland in about 2004...30/11/2016 #40 Robert Cormack#39 There's actually some controversy over whether Grossman owned Big Pink or he'd bought it for Dyan in his capacity as business manager. In any event, Dylan admitted spending more time at Big Pink than he did at his own home (not far away). As the kids came, and his motorcycle accident, Dylan spent more time at his own home (which went on for many years).27/11/2016 #31 Robert Cormack#20 Yes, the "Basement Tapes" were never something Dylan wanted distributed. In fact, they sat in someone's garage in Woodstock for many years. The loose quality of Dylan's and The Band's work allows a certain amount of leeway when listening. There's an interesting version of "You Ain't Going' Nowhere," that's worth a listen, also "Wheels on Fire." Robbie, in particular, learned a lot from Dylan, particularly on the lyrics side. There was so much creativity going on back then in The Pink House (Dylan was actually the landlord).
