“Deeper and Higher” – an introspective on personal growth by Author G D Grace

Never before in my life has moving ahead looked more inviting.  This is whole self-awareness awakening has assured me that some of the decisions that I’ve made have been pretty much right on point (Mistakes and all).  I know I could have had a better plan before I took that leap back in 2008, but some of the other leaps I’ve taken prior to and since then have been executed perfectly.

Some of us go to this introverted place to regroup and gather our thoughts — that place is a mental safe-haven for us to separate ourselves from emotions, so that we can analyze a situation without bringing all that heart into it.  Compassion is the only necessity for coping with and dealing with things beyond the scope of personal relationships with our life companions, family, and friends.

The past week required me to stay grounded in what I’ve learned so that I could deflect the sonic bursts coming from other people’s emotional baggage.  I had to keep reminding myself that their insecurities, their inconsiderate habits, their obsession with narrow minded views and habitual controlling habits, along with their misery, all belonged to them.

The plan of action — love from a distance.

I did some research last night as I begin the task of mapping out a plan for my spiritual direction. Obtaining knowledge is quite the rush, however, there must be a balance.  Spirituality keeps things in perspective and keeps the soul grounded in a  humble place.

People proactively living, driven by a purpose, are always investing in personal growth for a higher and deeper understanding of people, places, and things.  When we get to that point where we can appreciate the simple things, we reach a state of peace that some will never know in this life. ~GD

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
