You've inspired me to not worry so much about writing these long, arduous articles every time I sit down. I now realize that I can easily write something every day and not worry if people will ignore it because it had little content. As long as it has meaning and comes from within, the length of the article is inconsequential. Thank you!

I'm heavily into witchcraft so I read Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications. The way he describes what happens when we die and how there are many more paths for us to follow is simply astonishing. Each step we take brings us closer to our ultimate destination. Before I read his book I never really knew how I felt about what becomes of us. It sparked my interest to read more books by people who have experience communcating with those who have moved on. It's far-fetched to some but I do believe in it. There is far too much in the Universe that we know nothing about, so many undiscovered possibilities. I keep an open mind and hope with enough practice I can one day see what these mediums see.

Brilliant as usual, Samra. One thing I don't like to do is let my ego get the best of me when I'm writing. I feel like my purpose is to draw attention to my work but not let it get to my head. I believe that when someone starts doing it for the wrong reasons, the worst of that person comes out. Whether it's greed, ego, or just plain negativity, a writer runs the risk of scaring more people away than they attract.

Whenever you find yourself at a crossroads in your life, it’s best to take your time with your choice. One step makes all of the difference.

I remember coming dreadfully close to being hit by a car. I was distracted by my thoughts and proceeded to legally cross the street…

This was a brilliant article. It reminded me a lot of what I went through myself over the years. I had very little self-confidence for a good portion of my life. I'm introverted and always found myself avoiding the crowd, for all sorts of reasons. It took a long time for me to feel comfortable with myself and the type of person I am.

I've come to realize I don't have to change anything for anyone. I've learned it's the unique souls that make the world more interesting, that change the world, that pique our curiosities. It reminds me of a quote - "You laugh at me because I'm different. I laugh at you because you're all the same."

I look forward to reading more of your articles.
