The Question (ID Number 392)...

    What exactly should I do to help encourage your philosophy?

    ...and the response:

    In THE STORY OF B I speak of "becoming the message." You will "encourage my philosophy" to the extent that you become the message. You don’t have to convince people or argue with them. If you become the message, then you’ll see the people around you becoming the message as well. Naturally the books themselves are tools designed for this objective. Don’t try to explain them--I can’t explain them myself. Tell people what they did for you/to you and explain that if they want to know where you are, then they'll have to read them. One reader told me he had a copy of ISHMAEL that had been read by 147 people.
