Interviews & Essays

A Message from the Publisher
Some things are apparently meant to be. In January 2009, Phyllis Krystal engaged Legendary Publishing to publish Ceiling on Desires. At that time, she asked if it would be possible to have it ready by May 2009. I was already intimately familiar with the subject matter and know that it is from Sathya Sai Baba, whose very name Sathya means Truth, for which I have a deep respect and to whom, profound gratitude. I have been to India twice to see Baba at his ashram and can say that the experience of him on the soul's level is beyond my ability to explain in words. I've attempted with music, but even that falls short. Sometimes, we are so touched by Spirit that it changes us forever. And such has been my experience with Baba and the Divine. So, back to January 2009. I swallowed the big lump stuck in my throat, told Phyllis we would do everything within our power, took a deep breath, and turned over the rest to Baba, remembering the mantra he gave to me one day, "It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you do it, and think of me." So apparently, it was meant to be, as we are actually ahead of schedule and releasing Ceiling on Desires on April 22nd, 2009, Earth Day. But there's a little more to this story. As I have been back through COD, reading, proofing, typesetting, editing, typesetting again, scrutinizing every little detail you can possibly imagine, again and again, and driving Travis Clancy (Legendary Publishing's Creative Director) nuts, it has forced me, once again, to really read the message in COD and examine my own life. For instance, I would be irritated at someone or frustrated that something wasn't going just a certain way and then I would read the part about the effect of negative emotions on our desires, (including irritation & frustration) and couldn't help but notice the image in the big fat mirror that was staring back and looking a lot like me. I might have a prideful thought about how awesome it is to be the publisher for this book, then I would read about dealing with pride and vanity. Ouch! As I would put in 10-12 hours a day, day after day, going over things, perfecting things, changing things, tweaking things, I would read the part about dealing with control or being a work-a-holic. And the list goes on, and on. I suppose what I'm trying to say is that practicing and publishing COD has had a profound impact on me, personally. It has forced me to examine my motives, be honest with myself, and to stay focused on a bigger picture. It's just another role to play and it isn't forever. That having been said, publishing Ceiling on Desires is indeed, an honor and a responsibility not taken lightly. It is my heart's utmost desire that we have done it justice. And Baba, I ask for your blessing and know with all my heart that it has been your will, not mine. Thank you to all who made this possible and especially to Baba, for loving us all enough to bring his message to mankind now, at what feels like a turning point in history.
