What's your biggest strength and how did you develop it?
Self education. My background was teaching and I quickly discovered that a student's main problem was their own lack of interest to learn. There never was a keen student. At that time I was studying Hindu philosophy and was impressed by the idea of "putting knowledge into practice". Realizing I had large gaps in theory vs practice I put great energy into practical application of knowledge and by continually increasing knowledge, then practice, became highly proficient in art and music. I became my best student!
Time permitting I also tried to open up other areas of law, anthropology, writing and religion. Comparative religion became another specialty and I studied with many varied groups.
I am now a professional pianist and freelance artist.
My future goal is to hopefully revise high school math online and go on to uni level math as math was always a weak point.
Excellent Oztinato. Thanks for an inspiring reply. Knowledge coupled with practice have been an advantage for you and help develop intellectually. May God bless you. Yes, knowledge plus action results in cultivation of true love in other's heart.
Empathy and Compassion. I have not a clue how I developed it. It just is. Sometimes in is a real pain. But mostly it is a great pleasure that serves both me and other's well. Cool question that causes one to pause.
Aspiration or longing for God. I read a book in 1982 and awakened to a spiritual experience, that of being born again in the sense of shifting to a newer, different Consciousness. It just came.
God utilise my longing or inner cry to pray, meditate, serve, love ...and this itself strengthens or as you say develops my inner being or psyche. Much Love.
Thanks manatita.... Can you name that book?
With pleasure, my Friend. I still have it 33 years later. It's called The Path: Autobiography of a Western Yogi by Swami Kriyananda. He passed recently. A truly remarkable man. I believe the newer version is called The New Path. Look for both on Amaz
Oh that's wonderful, shall go through it. Thanks manatita.
Patience, definitely. And how did I develop it? Many trials and tribulations. That will do it every time.

I'll start! I am extremely forgetful and distracted. I forget everyone's birthday, anniversaries, forget to make payments, go to appointments. I have tried to keep agendas up to date, but I lose them all the time! What's yours?

What is your biggest weakness and greatest strength as a writer?My biggest weakness is spelling and word transferring - I do have to be careful! For example with word transferring, if I'm typing too fast I often type 'there' instead of 'their' and so on. My biggest strength I guess is that I love...

I am going through a really difficult time in my life right now and really could use some strength to make it through it. My patron goddess is Aglaia, but I feel like she is telling me to seek out another goddess to ask for guidance in conjunction with her. Do any of you have any suggestions on...
