I would write books that inspire and uplift. Ones that educate about things of an eternal nature. I would mix history, scripture, modern science, philosophy and modern revelation. (That sounds very boring, but trust me, it would be anything but boring!)I would write books that help people understand better who they are, and why they are, and what is possible for them, and how to reach these possibilities. I would write a book that would help people want nothing less for themselves than a person who knows that they have divinity within them would want. Then I would know myself better, and mankind better and God better. I would feel like I had accomplished something worth while and become a better person in the process, and perhaps have helped others to do the same thing.
If I wrote the story about the first time I fell in love and what a crazy mess it was like my friend Carrie (whose posts I miss dearly) told me I should, I would probably feel guilty with every word. See? Even the mere mention of this brings guilt up through my core and out through my fingers. So, maybe if I did something really worth while, THEN I could be so frivolous as to write about a silly girl who couldn’t get things straight between two best friends and has felt guilty about it ever since. Once I wrote about that, then maybe I’d understand it, though, and that would be a lot nicer than this insatiable guilt!
