Ways to make people not take your book seriously:
-- Start with a poem by yourself.
-- Use contemporary sources to make historical or mythological arguments.
-- Have your wife and other friends provide illustrations.
-- Mix together objective academic approaches with your personal religious beliefs.
-- Say things like "If you can hear deeply, the earth sings with bounteous energy."
-- Put in lots of photos of random trees, and actors you think are cute.
-- Compose hippyish "meditations" and write them in 2nd person.
-- Conflate everything you can think of from other cultures with your own.
-- Be published by the Theosophical Society.
