I certainly wouldn't mind making a little money from the things I've come to learn in my time on earth. People write books, and teach courses about life, and are given money for sharing the information they've garnered over time. To tell you the truth, this is what i see happening to myself, only because I feel I can provide ideas and perspectives that have yet to be heard, and in our civilization, unique things can fetch high prices. But lets say this never materializes for me. That, for some reason, my life takes me from here to there, and I'm never able to write again, or communicate my thoughts, for whatever reason. Or somehow do not receive acclaim, or accolades, or money for unique or poetic views on morality and Christ. I can honestly say, this would not bother me. As long as I work a job, that pays the bills and puts food on the table, then I will be a happy person. But what would bother me, is if these ideas and feelings go to waste.
So what I'm going to do, is post as many writings as I can on here, and possibly other websites. Though I say they are "for sale", they're really not. Please take them and sell them as your own if you wish. As long as these things inside me, that seem so needed for this generation, can get out into the world, and help hearts and minds, I can die with a feeling of not just happiness, but fulfillment. If one day, I see someone on t.v reciting my ideas, word for word, claiming that they are their own, I would not feel angry, but elated. Because in all actuality, the words are not mine alone, but for everyone to own for themselves, just like any other Word that belongs to God.
In this blurb of an article, I will not get into all these wonderful feelings and thoughts that fill me from day to day. Instead, this is more like a statement for other writers, then it is a life giving speech. I say my writings are "for sale", but they're really not. If your going to take my shirt, take my cloak too, as long as you show the world how warm such clothes can make a person feel. Again, I wouldn't mind making a little bit off these things, for food and shelter, but don't worry about me, I'll be just fine.
