I teach people a proactive, DIY method to achieve higher consciousness through a
non-religious understanding of their spiritual nature.

You must choose to access and use this innate power to create a better life.

Who Am I?

Higher consciousness and enlightenment are for everyone, not just for the 'special' few.

This is my firm belief. Upon meeting me, you would never know that I feel this way unless we had an in-depth conversation about Spirituality. And then, you still might not know.

Typically, I don’t bring up these topics during conversations. But when others bring them up I'll freely share what I have learned.

I am not in the business of proselytizing or imposing my will, my thoughts, or my values. I am, however, happy to engage with all seekers, a group to which I proudly belong. My search for truth and answers is ongoing. It will never end.

The way I express myself is nothing special. My language is not flowery, nor are my explanations hidden in allegory or metaphor. I think it important to be direct and down-to-earth; to give people real answers to their questions when possible and provide actionable information and answers. 

Given the opportunity to question someone more advanced than myself, this is how I prefer they answer me.

When speaking with others, like most people, I may use profanities to ‘punch up’ my thoughts; to emphasize the ideas I'm conveying. That’s part of who I am and I'm not ashamed nor embarrassed by this. It’s just language. The words themselves don't matter. It is only the energy behind the words, the intent of the words, which are important. Are the words simply adjectives/adverbs used for emphasis? Or, are they meant to harm? This is the delineating factor.

The Paradox of Man

Enlightenment really has little to do with one’s choice of words. It is about the inner essence of man: our choices and energies.

One aspect of Enlightenment is recognizing from which aspect of the 'Self' our words originate: The Ego self, or the True Self? 

This speaks directly to the paradox that is man – the Duality within.  This duality is the essence and foundation of Spirituality and Enlightenment. The goal is to develop the ability to actively and consciously choose which of these inner voices to hear, resonate with, and react from.

This is what I teach. It is the path I have followed for the last 35 years. It has helped me. I am certain it will help you. How can I be so sure? Because Inside, we’re all the same.

This speaks directly to the paradox that is man – the Duality within.  This duality is the essence and foundation of Spirituality and Enlightenment. The goal is to develop the ability to actively and consciously choose which of these inner voices to hear, resonate with, and react from.

My path was not easy. It was a struggle to gain the wisdom that comes from understanding and assimilating this knowledge into daily living. Your path doesn’t have to be as difficult as mine. 

I am a skeptical and analytical person. Very left-brained. I want to see and feel tangible evidence before I'm willing to believe, to commit to something. This, I have learned, made my path to awareness and my learning process far more difficult. 

But my struggles can be a great benefit to you. They gave me the detailed insight and understanding — the know-how — to break things down to their essence enabling me to teach and explain this information in a way that is both accessible and actionable.

There have been many wonderful gurus who just know, who never lost awareness of the consciousness they are. These folks are wonderful to listen to. But are they the best teachers? My experience has been: not necessarily. And for good reason. For some, their higher level of consciousness has brought them to a place of understanding and peace which also brings a level of insulation, gaps in the way they relate to the struggles the rest of us experience. 

I Don't Look The Part

I don't wear long flowing robes. I do not have a full, white beard. I am a simple man who is comfortable in shorts, flip-flops, and a tee shirt. I like good music. I don’t believe in any religion. (In fact, I do believe that Religion is Obsolete — has outlived any real usefulness it might have once had.)

The path I have walked has been difficult, even torturous. It included one episode of massive physical pain.

Miracles in My Life

In 2015, during a daily bike ride — a routine I had practiced for many years for exercise and health — I was hit by a car. It has been estimated that the car was travelling at approximately 45 miles per hour when it hit me*. It was a hit-and-run. The driver, a tortured young man in his mid twenties, left me for dead and then committed suicide about an hour later. The police never had the opportunity to question him.

(*The GPS on my bike showed that the speed of my bike — not me, as the GPS was attached to the bike — instantly went from about 20 MPH to 38 MPH in less than a second. The speed estimate of the car when it hit me is based upon this fact, and the physics of kinetic energy.)

I spent the next 6.5 weeks in the hospital recovering from massive injuries, literally from head to toe. I had more broken bones than I can count, including:

  • a burst fracture of my T-4 vertebra (the neurosurgeon who fixed my back used the word Miracle to describe his shock that I am not paralyzed from this injury), and…
  • a complete break of my right femur (the orthopedic surgeon also used the word Miracle to describe his dismay as to how I had survived. It was his belief that the soft tissue damage in my upper thigh was so severe that I should have bled out and died.)

Doctors rarely use the word Miracle. Yet, in my case, 2 doctors did when they spoke to my wife about the many different injuries I’d suffered.

In fact, without knowing what was coming, and in a very conscious way, I had actually created those Miracles, along with a third one that also manifested in this accident/incident.

Needless to say, this was a huge event in my life. But, it was not the beginning of my Spiritual Awakening or my Spiritual Journey.

It was more a culmination of over 30 years of Spiritual struggle; a struggle which began in the early 1980’s. It gave me the opportunity to test myself; to better define my ideas and ideals; and to employ and see my Spiritual understanding in action. 

The healing from this event continues, even as I write this, almost 3 years after the accident occurred.

Spirituality is For Everyone

It is my hope and desire to share, with any and all who have interest in knowing, the knowledge and wisdom the years of study and search have bestowed upon me.  I want to help all who have come to the realization that there must be more to life than what can be seen on the surface and all who aspire to be their best selves. 

Understanding your Spiritual nature and putting this information into daily practice is the path to changing your life… To improve it. It's also the catalyst for changing the world, one person at a time. Each must choose for themselves, without the duress or stress of being forced to make this choice, to find the True Self within. It is a choice, not an obligation.

This is free will and choice in action. Even though your real purpose for life is to make this choice, there is no obligation to do so.

It is a very personal choice, one that not everyone is ready to make. And it must be made day-to-day, moment-to-moment. This choosing never ends. It is as much a part of life as breathing, eating, and sleeping.

This is the foundation for higher consciousness and, ultimately, enlightenment and everyone can attain it. Everyone can do this.

It is a very personal choice, one that not everyone is ready to make. And it must be made day-to-day, moment-to-moment. This choosing never ends. It is as much a part of life as breathing, eating, and sleeping.

Everyone has this capability, capacity, and knowledge within. Everyone can accomplish this most noble goal. 

So, please, make your choices. Choose thoughtfully, carefully, and wisely. Whatever you choose, and in every aspect of your life, do it well. But always remember, even if you choose to ignore your innate Spiritual nature, your God Self, by way of your True Self, will always be there for you. It awaits your awakening. The world awaits your conscious arrival.

Please feel free to explore this web site and absorb all its information. 

And, if you feel so moved, please join our community, take one of the courses, read my book or one of those listed on this page, or do all these things. I look forward to meeting you there.

Be well. Be aware. Be you.

Thank you and warmest regards...
