Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
— Antoine de Saint Exupéry
The other day, I came across this article on Lifehacker and the first question (for a new protege to ask a mentor) was “What do you wish you’d known about the field before starting in it?”
Contemplating the question, and contemplating the purpose of my book-in-progress, I massaged the question into this:
Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give an absolute beginner to get them to your level of spiritual development?
In other words, If I had to do it all over again…
This was one of those, Ah ha! moments. The book is too complicated. Too much. I was trying to share everything, and in doing so, was diluting the core purpose: What someone absolutely needs in order to get to where I am now.
I’m chopping out a lot.
This might seem like a set-back, but in the end it’s a wash time-wise. I don’t have to write as much.
And it’ll be a better book.
