Thrive on the eccentricity of your imagination

Thomas Moore describes "The Place Beyond Seeking" for him in Spirituality & Health magazine's January - February 2015 issue:
"With the end of the odyssey motif in my life has come another kind of peace. I used to feel a need to teach and give talks, hoping to persuade people of the value of lessons I had learned. There was often a short gap between my learning something and the need to profess it. Now I do a lot of teaching and public speaking, but I have no need to convince anyone of anything. I don’t want converts or followers..."
. . .
"It goes without saying that I hope no one adopts my way of doing things. I don’t recommend it. If I can write about it like this, I probably haven’t learned the lessons deeply enough yet. I suggest that you do what you’ve always done, pursuing goals and making plans, but exposing your mind and heart to deep and worthy ideas that eventually might transform you in your own way, just as my resources have fashioned me."
Moore includes, "Don’t think that I’m not busy. I travel, teach, speak, and write more than ever. The peace I’m talking about is compatible with a full and active life. It’s the calm core beneath the frenetic exterior, the loss of the existential anxiety about being correct, knowing it all, living properly and not being judged badly."
