Hello folks. My name is Pip and I am a gnome. I like to think I am a friendly guy and a snappy dresser. Some people think I talk too much and am over the top. I don’t care. I find joy in most things and most especially in being me. I play an important part in the stories “Rebecca’s Initiation” and “Rebecca’s Destiny”. By the way, “Rebecca’s Initiation” is only $.99 on Kindle and will be free Thanksgiving weekend. “Rebecca’s Destiny” is available for pre-order now and will be live on Monday, November 30—also for $.99.
But that isn’t what I came here to talk about. I want to talk about humans. Humans are funny; not funny as in weird—well that too—but “ha-ha” funny. You may not know this, but I can become invisible to humans. I see some funny stuff, believe me. I think the funniest thing about people is that most people think they have a broad understanding of how the universe works—but they don’t. If they did, the world wouldn’t be such a mess.
Here are a few examples:
- A lot of people think that joy or satisfaction come from getting what you want—be it money, things or whatever. Really, joy is the default state of the human mind and is sustained by having work you love so much that it is fun and having a few people you love so much that you let them be who they are and they offer you the same courtesy.
- Humans generally are afraid much of the time but don’t admit it to themselves or others. This leads to acts of violence. People who are full of joy and love from the work and people they love generally do not commit acts of violence. So, how do you get rid of the fear? First you must admit it. Then you talk about it with someone you trust will listen with unconditional acceptance. Sometimes just talking about your fears is enough to take their power. If not, you can make your decisions based on the reality of the situation and not just emotions.
- There is a natural tendency for humans to be judgmental about everything and everyone. However, they are always happier when they can face life with unconditional acceptance—that is, be aware of things, but don’t pass judgement. I find this one particularly hilarious.
I could go on and on–really. But I won’t. They told me I had to be brief. So, I’ll close by saying you can get a free copy of “Rebecca’s Initiation” by subscribing to my mailing list. You can do this by clicking the “Sign Up” button under the “My Facebook Author Page” on the right.
Have a joyful day. I plan to.
