I've noticed a lot of your posts have struck a lot of people deeply lately, myself included. I've had tangible reactions to reading them..an odd "this is written just for you" feeling. Also I've had objective improvements, my emotions improve, my gratitude improves, my zest for life is ignited. I've noticed its the articles that feel different seem like they are coming from the heart, ones that feel like you really care about the people you are writing for. This post nearly made me cry, I remember being touched deeply by feeling blessed, the purpose of life, earn your first love dollar, what if I have many interests.., tolerance is resistance to love...And the mention of the joy of sadness put my own life in perspective as I read this post.
I feel I want to contribute here though. I LOVE your articles that feel this way, I take steps towards growth, I have profound realizations, but some of your other articles don't touch me this way. The money ones don't feel loving at all, they feel hurtful or as if you are projecting a lot of negativity.. The "yet another" raw foods update was negative right from the start. I feel really let down when I read these, as if you just aren't feeling the good vibes when you write them.
Perhaps it is my inclination towards love/purpose articles, but I felt much more inspired and they seemed much more eloquent and from the heart. It feels a lot of the time your articles about Skill/productivity/optimization don't have the same heartfelt eloquence. They are textbook, they don't inspire emotion; I can read them an analyze them logically, but I don't feel them. And I feel a lot of the power behind the message in them is lost when I don't feel the love the other articles contain. I consider the life of purpose article recently written a great example of an article I felt a strong connection towards which also had practical application towards monetary development.
Has anyone else felt this way? Is there a way we can help Steve contribute beyond posting our opinions on each article?
