"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." - Joseph Campbell
After more than half a century on this vulnerable blue wisp of a planet, I have come to realize two important things about myself.
First and foremost, I suppose, is that I like chocolate. No…wait….perhaps 'like' is not the right word. Let's put it this way; if someone were to stand between me and my favorite chocolate desert….let's say a chocolate cheese cake, for instance…..well…..I may become slightly moody and perhaps a tad withdrawn.
When they regained consciousness, however, I would quietly explain to them that not only is chocolate medicinal and easily stored, it is, in fact, quite delicious.
It's a little known fact that all mystics, no matter how young or old, love chocolate. Mostly dark chocolate but sometimes milk…can't get enough. I don't know why, but we all love it. Must be the endorphins.
And the second important thing I have learned about myself is that I am always becoming something new. Year after year, it never fails. Fueled by chocolate, I evolve. It's my fate.
So much so, in fact, that people are often surprised to discover that I have had many different professions in my lifetime. I have been a researcher, a bar tender, a teacher, a media relations advisor, a typographer, a painter, a reporter, a syndicated columnist, a film critic …I mean the list goes on and on. Not to mention astrologer, mystic, author, web site diva and poet.
And this 'becoming', I have come to understand, is really a spiritual thing. People on a spiritual path are always becoming one thing or another. Early on I learned that the only thing I can claim as my own in this life is my heart. And the heart, tenacious little muscle that it is, wants what the heart wants. You can't stop it. For me, it all starts with chocolate and expands out from there.
Lately, though, I seem to be becoming a radio person. And I suspect I may soon evolve into an actual radio host. That seems to be the direction things are going of late. This coming week, for instance, I will be appearing on yet another radio show called 'Future Theater' with Bill and Nancy Birnes.
Yes….that's Bill Birnes, the man in the baseball hat and sunglasses from the television show UFO Hunters and his lovely wife Nancy. They are the best people. You can listen to them interview me, chat with us and ask questions here: http://www.futuretheater.com at 5pm PST on September 22nd. It should be great fun. There's just so much to learn.
'Course, most important….I wonder if there will be chocolate.
