It may be one thing what I happen to write about myself, quite another thing would be what others are saying about me. Here is part of an email that I received from a great lady I was introduced to at a seminar:
I am still feeling the void for not having finished our conversation at Brendon’s course. Still, I think you could have been up there teaching us more with your experience, insight and fearless risk taking. You have rare qualities I have not seen put together in many. I am not saying that to stroke your ego or to come on to you. I think the mixture of who you are, how you think, your sense of generosity, and trust in the universe and that good will always come to you and yours is an inspiration to me. I wonder how you came to this place of peace on the outside and that free fall spirit, of oh well, let’s do it. And all the while staying present, inclusive of others, looking toward the visionaries horizon, certain of your internal values and being generous all at the same time. It is a mixture that usually does not produce the results your life has thus far. It just fascinates me, that it all. It is like seeing a wonderful unique trunk of a large far reaching tree. It has knobs and bumbs but is so artistic in its shape it is mesmorizing. I think the Japanese call it Wabi Sabi.
One of the premises of wabi sabi is that one has to know perfection itself before placing, on purpose imperfection, in just the right place to garner the attention of the observer. It works because the human mind likes to see what doesn’t fit rather than what does. You have danced the wabi sabi dance without getting stuck. You still have your curiosity, interest, passion and dreams in tact. It is almost like the wonder of childhood. Anyway, forgive me for getting so esoteric, but of all the people at Brendon’s or Brian Tracy’s there was only one like you – you. So I had to say that, and I just was wondering how you got that way. So when they go to clone human beings, I can elect you to be one of the first successful choices.
