Hi Brenda,

I wrote my “reading is overrated” post a long time ago. It still generates more reactions that nearly all of the things I’ve shared.

I am not really a luddite and do read, but my main point perhaps a decade later is that my emphasis is to learn to access the knower within.

I know that reading helps with this, but at the same time can distract one from the task of polishing the knower within.

I suppose I’ve become a bit doctrinaire here, as I have no patience with people recommending that I read such and such a book. I usually ask them to tell me what they’ve experienced or learned from reading that book.

It’s faster that way!

I’m the director of the Sacred Inclusion Network, originator of Sacred Conversations and the author of Notes for a New Age.
