Taking a Time Out
Posted Tuesday, May 29th, 2012
Beginning tomorrow, you won’t be seeing or hearing much from me for a while. I’m going to be taking a time out, and I want to let you know what that’s all about.
It’s suddenly become very clear to me that I need to hit the pause button and take a hiatus from much of what I’ve been doing on the internet and in other areas of my life.
It’s time to allow myself to simply be.
Since I won’t be very visible online for the time being (and I honestly don’t know how long that will be), it feels important to give you a little background information.
This has been a very intense period in my life, and I’m emotionally exhausted.
In what seems like only a few weeks, people in my immediate family, and others who have been as close to me as family, have experienced two transitions to the next dimension, two hospitalizations and surgeries for physical conditions that still remain undiagnosed and unresolved, and a bizarre and unprovoked assault in a foreign country.
Fortunately I’m OK, but most of my energy is still being focused on those various situations, and my heart just isn’t into much of anything else right now.
I also think it’s time for me to step away temporarily from Lessons from the Source.
It’s been almost four years since the book was published, and I’ve spent much of almost every day since then sitting at my computer trying to find ways to let people know about it, and that’s been taking a toll, as well.
I’m from a generation for whom understanding the nuances of using the internet does not come easily, and trying to figure things out essentially by myself has been very draining.
The response to the book, and to the excerpts that I’ve been sharing with you, has been enormously gratifying, and there’s a lot more to come at some point.
The lessons in the book were written over a three month period in 1995, yet I’ve been receiving and transcribing this kind of stuff for more than 30 years.
I recently spent several months reviewing and re-reading all of that other material that no one else has ever seen, and a lot of it is at least as powerful as what’s in the book.
But there’s so much of it that figuring out how to organize it and present it in a way that will make it easily accessible for you feels overwhelming, and I need to let go of it for a while.
As you might have noticed, I started a new Facebook page (www.facebook.com/JackArmstrongAuthor) where I could begin sharing some of that new material, but nothing at all has been posted there. That will happen eventually, but not for now.
And I just finished a new e-book called Accepting and Allowing: The Keys to Manifesting Your Desires that has some wonderful new perspectives on life, but I’m putting that on hold, as well.
I’ll be checking in occasionally to say hello and to keep you posted about things that might be interesting, and at some point I’ll be back on a regular basis, ready to start sharing some of those other remarkable writings with you.
This is a very exciting and liberating moment for me. One of the recurring themes in the book and all of the other writings is the importance of letting go of life’s struggles and allowing our good to unfold effortlessly. I’ve been struggling too much lately, and I’m ready to start allowing.
Thanks so much for your love and friendship and encouragement and support. They mean more than I will ever be able to tell you. Much love and many blessings to each of you.
