Who Is The Prophet of Life?
I recently found an interesting and potentially important book in a quaint little used book
shop. I read it and enjoyed it immensely. The book was entitled “Revelations of 2012,
The Path of Possibilities”. I was intrigued by the name of its author, not an actual surname
but merely, The Prophet of Life. The book doesn’t mention anything about the author.
Who is this Prophet of Life? I wondered.
Revelations of 2012, The Path of Possibilities also didn’t have any
contact information for The Prophet of Life nor for the publishing house that
published it. It did, however, have an email address for those who want to
learn more about the things discussed in the book. I sent off an email but got
no reply. Although it had only been a couple of days since I sent the email I
was consumed by curiosity. I tried various search engines and found the publisher
of the book (Love Force international Publishing) and a Prophet of Life web address.
I went to that web address and found products like music downloads by an Alternative
Rock band (Teacherz) and by another band of unspecified genre (A prophet Among Us),
whose songs reportedly are inspired by The Prophet of Life, a number of quotes by The
Prophet of Life some of which I had already heard of but didn’t know who wrote them, a
book of poetry by The Prophet of Life entitled “Reflections in the Mirror of Life” and the book
Revelations of 2012 The Path of Possibilities.
There was also an obscure blog on the site entitled Who Is The Prophet
of Life? The blog states, “No one really knows who The Prophet of Life is”. It
further states “In his book Revelations of 2012 he describes himself “as common
as the dirt” and says “If you passed me on the street, you wouldn’t give me a
second look.” He also says “I work for my daily bread just as you do.” this is true,
it does say this in the book. Then the blog goes on to state "We do not know who he is,
where he lives, what kind of work he does and how he lives.Perhaps that is the point”.
I found this to be a rather curious statement. In this age of everyone wanting their 15 minutes
of fame is it possible there is an author, a really thought provoking author who doesn't seek
I began to wonder. Another thought came into my mind in the form of a question:
How could the publisher not know the identity of an author? It conjures images of
manuscripts being left on park benches and phone calls directing the publisher
to the location of the manuscripts. Judging from this blog, I couldn’t tell if The Prophet
of Life is a prophet, justan author or a retail icon.
Then I thought that despite curiosity, what if there were a prophet who didn’t want his
identity known?If no one actually knew who The Prophet of Life was, he could be anybody.
This anonymity could give him strength and allow people to concentrate on the message
instead of the messenger. Imagine a prophet who didn’t crave thelimelight, who had a
universal message that rang true with all cultures. That would be a very powerful thing indeed.
I concluded that perhaps it doesn’t matter if I don’t know who The
Prophet of Life is. Perhaps it’s just comforting to know that he’s out there,
somewhere, writing profound quotes and books to inspire me.
