It was Sunday January 13,2019.
It had been a long journey since it began thirty seven years ago.
Early in 1982 I began to question God, who he was, if he existed and what, if any was my relationship with him.
I had run the gamete, I began my religious training in a tiny United Church of Christ in my youth, many years later, I returned to the same religion I had left many years earlier.
Since then I visited many churches, Lutheran, Methodist, Mormon. And others.
I had questioned religious leaders who could only tell me that when bad things happened to good people, it was God’s Will, that wasn’t an answer to me. It told me nothing.
I then researched the hidden mysteries of masonry, the resulting search lead me to the four corners of the earth. It was a wild adventure as explained in my previous book, “A Journey To Enlightenment.”
In the process I encountered aboriginal, Mayan, Egyptian cultures, made contact with extraterrestrials, and had many past life remembrances.
Sitting back in another United Church of Christ thirty-seven years later, it all began to come together.
I suddenly understood the words and phrases in the song book more than I ever had before, the sermon suddenly had more meaning. It was like a giant light bulb suddenly came on. It was all very clear.
The journey I had taken , a journey few are privileged to experience , a journey into a world scorned by many in the mainstream world had all been worth it, my life that many, even today don’t understand or even believe is possible became the catalyst to my understanding what Christianity is all about, and what Jesus was trying to tell us.
Jesus never wanted to be a savior, he never wanted to be worshiped. He, because of his birth and his life journey enabled him to come into great knowledge that even most don’t understand today.
He only wanted to be a teacher and for us to understand his teachings, he said, “As I will do, you will do also.”
He never proclaimed to be the King of the Jews.
He was the son of God, just like we all are the sons and daughters of God.
It’s all about trusting our inner guidance, our Higher Self, the connection to the Christ Consciousness and it’s connection to the Supreme Intelligence.
I always say that people should not rush to change religions. There is real value in finding the spiritual resources you need in your home religion. Dalai Lama
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.
In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.
For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.
He has published several books about his adventures.
