My life is in shambles. The only good thing about that is I finally have someone to blame for this fact. Instead of always living with Catholic Girl Responsibility of being the one who is in charge of life choices and decisions...
I can now blame someone else and there are very few who will argue with me. I'm sure by her bank account and its massive size, there are many, many, many like me who have been sucked into her web and have had havoc wrecked on them in the bargain.
And to think I paid money for this! Beware of this woman...
...Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way.
I'm about to start my sixth week of this saga and journey. I will not bore you with the sordid details. Let's just say, when I picked the book up, I knew who I was; fairly certain was I of my abilities and direction.
Now, none of that is true for me. And, I seem to be getting more lost than found.
I would like to tell you that I highly recommend this book, but I'd be lying and you know I can't do that.
Instead, I give you this warning: Do not read this book if you are happy with who you are and your talents. Do not read this book if you are one of the few blessed with the smugness of thinking you're all that plus a bag of chips.
Do not read this book if you're not willing to question most of what you thought about yourself.
And for the love of all that's holy, Do NOT read this book if you're not willing to consider that more might be out there for you than you had been willing to hope.
If you don't heed my advice, I do promise that Ms. Cameron will make you miserable and ruin your life, too.
The only bright spot in this nighmare is that I actually got a two-fer when I said yes to this group. Not only do I have Ms. Cameron to blame, I can also blame Kavindra of A Clear Path To Happy; it was she and her Kali loving ways that sucked me in.
And, I'm fairly certain that Ms. Cameron is the 21st century face of Kali the goddess who tears things up so they can be put back together to be the best ever.
They say in order to learn, you must be willing to forget everything you thought you knew. Holy crap, I hope I'm learning now. Either that or I've become the village idiot for nothing.
Do I know you?
Namaste' Till Next Time,
