Why I Share My Thoughts

We all have motivations for sharing our thoughts online. In this short essay I share my reasons for baring my soul and discussing my discoveries as I move through life as a spiritual sojourner.

I Like Sharing

A friend of mine recently asked me, “Why do you write and share your thoughts with people.” He added, “People are just going to do what they do, regardless of whether or not you offer a better idea. Plus,” he continued, “You said no one reads your blog anyway.”

I replied that I share what I know to be Truth for several reasons.
1. I like it. I like the process of putting my thoughts and observations down in print. The actual work of sharing my ideas, the internet and email creations is more challenging than I would like but that is due, in part, to the fact that I am self-taught and am still learning.
2. If I only help one person, in my entire lifetime, it will be worth it; but even if I do not, it helps me to congeal my ideas into a more concise ideology. My thoughts are like wild horses, sometimes, they can be unmanageable without some intervention.
3. When I first started out, I thought this would be a great way to write a book, with each “Secret” being a page or two in the book. This has never worked out too well because my thoughts (as mentioned in 2) can be all over the map. I am in the process of pulling enough thoughts together to formulate a publishable manuscript, but I have been working on it for over a year. It is a slow, often tedious, exercise that I have to squeeze into my busy days. I think if I had started with an outline and followed that format it would have worked for that purpose, but that is far more organized than I am, normally.

My Writing Is For Me

The Buddha is attributed with having said: “There is no wealth like knowledge, and no poverty like ignorance.” While I always do, and always have written my Secrets to Peace for me, (and years before that my Reflections) to organize my thoughts, and to bring clarity to the myriad lessons life continually offers me, I like sharing them, or at least making them available for others to find, regardless of whether or not I am ever rewarded for this sharing. I believe myself to be a generous person, and this writing is just another way to give to my brothers and sisters. Besides, there are a couple of people who routinely tell me that my words help them. That always seems like confirmation, enough, that what I do is worthwhile.

I have said this before and I am sure I will say it again and again. The thoughts I share, via this venue, are always my inner Self speaking to the me that needs tools to properly function in the world. While I frequently use the pronoun, you, it is never directed at anyone other than me. So, if I say “Your life would be greatly improved by a daily practice of meditation” it is me speaking to me and not Elliott giving advice to any of his beloved readers. I share this because of another comment I received recently, which I will not share, but it was criticizing me for thinking I had all the answers.

I have said, repeatedly, I do not consider myself to be a way-shower, I am merely a fellow traveler in this wonderful journey we call life. I do not believe I have any exclusive knowledge about the “rules” for living, I simply enjoy sharing what makes my daily walk a little brighter, a little less stressful, a little more joyous.

The bottom line is this: I share my thoughts about living in peace in the hopes that some will find value in my discoveries. If my words do not speak to you, then they are clearly not meant for you. There is nothing to be gained by attacking the messenger because you do not agree with the message. Just move on. I wish you well.

That’s all I will say about that.

It is Important That We Share

In closing I want to share one more quote, this from a Jewish commentary on the Book of Deuteronomy called the Deuteronomy Rabbah: “In vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others.” I think it is important that we share our knowledge. I think there is value in writing it down. It feels significant to honor my Self by sharing what Life teaches me. My efforts here are a result of these beliefs.

I hope that by sharing my walk through life that others are helped, but if not, I promise that it helps me to go through this process because of the benefits I receive. As for my knowledge: it is subject to change at any moment, but that is just the nature of knowledge when one approaches life with an open mind and an open heart.

Regardless of the effect my words have in your life, know that I greatly appreciate your presence here. May we grow together and raise the collective consciousness by learning, each day, to be a greater expression of the Love we are.

Onenow, your views are similar to mine as to why I write and share my thoughts. It is sort of a legacy, an expressions of gratitude to creation, to leave my footprints.

I was working in Indonesia thirty years ago and had a colleague from Britain. He told me he wrote a diary, a page a day, whenever he could and he had accumulated 1000 pages. I asked him whether he would be publishing a book and he said "no, these are just for my satisfaction and to pen my thoughts". This was before internet days! Sadly, he passed away twenty five years ago.

We are blessed that we take the positives from the advancement of technology to find a platform that doesn't cost much but give us a reward by way of sharing our thoughts, and even few are kind enough to read and respond! siva

Thank you Siva. I do hope to publish books so that something of me may survive this temporary form.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. - Elliott

I agree, I share everything, I am like an open book but I also feel that some people may actually learn from my experiences and either become more empathetic or do not make the mistakes that I have made

Hi Carol,
Yes I do hope that my writings will help people along the way. So many people never say anything, one way or the other, but I do not share for the purpose of attention, so it doesn't really matter to me.

Lovely. You also probably do it for the little bit of pennies that you can get from it. Not that you can retire on it or anything.

Loved your essay! Cheers m8

Marzeus Von Hemelen, While I would like to one day generate income sharing my books, so far in 12 years of sharing my writings, I have not made a dime. I still hope to change that one day, Thanks for being here. - Elliott

Hi onenow, I read and enjoyed this post and feel that we have much in common. I think it is important that we share our thoughts and if we help just one person, we have not lived in vain. At the moment I am sharing my thoughts on the Bible, particularly the Old Testament. I consider myself spiritual but not religious, however I have spent a lot of time studying the Bible and enjoy sharing my thoughts. I have written quite a few short stories as well as some that might be called novelettes. I will read more of your thoughts and I'm sure that I will learn from them. Blessings.
