Less Blog, More Book

A regular reader of Astroinquiry wrote to me the other day. Ann asked:

Hi Frederick:

Was wondering if all is well with you as you haven’t posted a new article for a bit. It’s always a pleasure to receive your insights & musings

I responded:

Hello Ann

I made a decision last month to focus my writing skills on a book — an effort that will generate income.

The blog is a labor of love, with little to no compensation. I’ve grown weary of everyone’s expectations related to the internet: ‘Give it to me for free or I can’t bother.’

Gurdjieff taught that people only value something if they pay for it — and that’s my new philosophy as we head into a new year.

My book’s title is: Save Yourself With Astrology. I think you will enjoy it.

If you’re interested in updates on the book, I suggest you follow me on Facebook where I’ll make announcements regarding progress, pre-orders — breakthroughs and breakdowns associated with the writing process. Always a fun trainwreck to track. Or you can read more about the book here.

The good news is that with the advent of electronic books the project will move from desktop, to editor, to Amazon in a few heartbeats (yeah, right).

Anyway, wish me well. And may you too discover a way to prosper during the most electrifying End Days ever witnessed in human history (well, next to The Black Death).

Cheers,

Frederick

    Glad to hear this news Frederick. My wife and I were talking about the need for a book that wold incorporate Gurdjieff’s teachings into an astrological framework, so I hope you’re considering including that perspective in the book.

    Have you read Fritz Peter’s second book, where he outlines in details Gurdjieff’s teaching about the zodiac and each sun sign? It’s not to be missed.

    Good luck with Save Yourself…We’ll follow on Facebook for updates. Perhaps for those not friendly to Facebook you could have a newsletter or email list so you could update them.

    Best of luck with this. I’m going to miss your full and new moon reports, but it’s worth the sacrifice to see a new book from you. Please add me to your mailing list.

    Frederick~ Just wanted to wish you well with your book. Your
    unique talents of subtle perception,beautiful expression and depth of inquiry will create something that is a gift to our evolution. With my first decade of spiritual inquiry in ‘the Work’ in the 60’s and 70’s,I really resonate with your ‘base’. Thank you for sharing your experience and your vision. Your sharing is
    always the finest of gems.

    Frederick–you might want to consider e-publishing on Smashwords as well as Amazon. You get a lot more of the money using Smashwords. My pal Pete has found a niche formatting manuscripts for the various e-publishers, so if you need help with that, email me. He works super cheap, does good work, and is easy to deal with. Looking forward to your book.

    Dear Frederick,

    I am not a ‘religious’ person but I cannot recall a better description of my ‘issues’ with your new path in life.

    Matthew

    25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

    26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

    27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

    28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

    29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

    32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

    33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself
