Ernie Zelinski replied to jeff herman's discussion WHO HAS DONE BOOK SIGNINGS? in the group Book Promotion

Ernie Zelinski replied to jeff herman's discussion PRINT OR DIGITAL in the group self- publishing

Ernie Zelinski replied to Sharon Lindenburger's discussion The integrity of spiritual teachers in the group Spiritual Writing and Publishing
"My opinion (for what it is worth) is that this passage says it all: "To know and not to do is still yet not to know."— Buddhish Saying In other words, if you do not walk the talk, you do not know what you are talking…"
