By Drew Kittinger
DK: All I wanted to do was be the expert. Is that so much to ask?
You are, as only you can be. And that’s why I’m using you.
DK: Why does this feel like a trap?
Insofar as I trap anybody, sure you’re trapped. You’re trapped in the quest to be all you’re supposed to be -- just like everyone else. So far, you excel in one particular area that makes my job easier. So, TAG you’re it!
DK: What if I’m not into it?
Neale wasn’t either, in the beginning. Look where it got him.
DK: Never mind, Count me in!
Precisely. I did everything but have the Jehovah’s Witnesses distribute that book door to door. Look, just so we’re clear. The more you resist, the more likely will I be to seek out another expert that’s as empty-headed as you, but less resistant. Can we get on with this?
DK: Was that an insult?
No, no, Drew, of course it wasn’t. There are few such perfect vehicles as yourself to do this sort of work. I need what you have, exactly as you have it, but with your cooperation.
DK: Well, thanks, I think. So what am I supposed to do?
Relax, follow your fingers, and ask a sensible question now and again.
DK: That’s it?
No. Fill out the boxes in the submission form like you’re supposed to, in advance. Then do what you usually do to prepare, only trade in your bong for a vaporizer, it’s better on your lungs. Then, sit down at the keyboard and let your fingers do the talking, and when I say “Spread the word!” you flick that cursor to Submit. Hit Enter, and I’ll take it from there.
DK: To where?
To the people that need it, when they need it.
DK: Oh, I get it…this is all about instant communication instead of going through the polishing and publishing process.
DK: Cool use of the internet, Lord!
Gotta keep up with what is, you know.
DK: What about residuals? Where’s the money come from?
Can we move on please?
DK: I’m the expert. I had to ask that.
I already covered that topic before. This is about stuff I never get to talk about.
DK: Okay…sure, Fine! Be back in a minute. Gotta prepare.
What makes you think I’ll be here when you get back?
DK: You’re everywhere at all times, right?
I hate experts…(pause) You ready?
DK: As ready as a guy talking to his own fingers can be, sure.
Fine…then let’s begin. People don’t seem to get it. When I speak through someone, I speak through someone. There’s nothing that I say that doesn’t get squeezed through the filter of that person’s times, society, personal history and even desires to be a reflection of me.
Great question, Drew! I just want to be clear that anything that reaches the reader is God expressing him/herself through Drew Kittinger. For all intents and purposes, Drew is God speaking and it’s useless to sort out that which is of Drew and that which is of God because it’s all the same thing. The only thing that matters is what the reader does with it.
DK: Couldn’t you have started with something simpler?
It’s not so important that you get this, Drew, as it is the reader gets something to work with.
DK: Are you saying I’m an idiot?
Where did that come from?
DK: Well, you implied…
This isn’t about process or therapy, Drew. It’s the best I can do with dictation. You can always go to the internet later, pull this up and figure it out for yourself, just like everyone else. For now, before you have to hit that pipe again, just go with the flow will ya?
DK: Yeah, sure. Wait a minute…are you saying I’m an addict?
See what I mean? You have to slop over into what comes out by interpreting everything I say. All I’m doing is observing. But this is okay. You take so little time…I’m sorry, NO time refining anything you write, that the readers will get this with all its flaws and then maybe have to figure things out for themselves.
DK: Now you’re saying I’m a lousy writer?
If so, so what? Do you think for a minute that whom something comes through is anywhere near as important as what touches the reader? I’m in the business of using any vehicle, no matter how flawed, to get my point across.
DK: That’s ridiculous. Something poorly written could never do God’s work.
You ever read Celestine Prophecy?
DK: You win. Okay, so what you’re saying is God speaks through idiots, addicts and lousy writers.
Spread the Word!
Up until a little while ago, Drew thought he was just a hack. But then he tuned into http://mauihealingartist.com and learned that his only job is to be the fullest Drew that he can possibly be. There, he learned, there are things that can come through him that cannot be matched by anyone. This is true with you, too. Enjoy the Journey!
