I teach a proactive, DIY method to achieve higher consciousness through non-religious, practical application of human spiritual nature.

Only by making a conscious choice can this innate power be accessed and used to create a better life.

Who Am I?

Long ago, I made a choice to explore the spiritual underpinnings of human existence. At first, it was a whim, a minor curiosity. But as I explored and learned, it became more of a directed journey that lead me forward along the path to higher consciousness. Along the way, I explored crystals, psychics, guides and angels, and more.

Ultimately, during my 40 years of seeking answers to life's most vexing questions, I discovered that those things were not truly important. In fact, though nice accompaniments and experiences, they're not really part of a path to higher consciousness and enlightenment. They were stepping stones, meant to guide me forward and discarded once I found the next step upward.

Otherwise, they became distractions — as much of the physical world is — and did not lead to real, unending happiness; to real inner peace. They needed to be discarded to continue the journey up the ladder of higher consciousness, which is the only goal for our physical existence.

Higher consciousness and even enlightenment are for everyone, not just for the 'special' few. Those who are able to attain a higher level of consciousness usually create this success through determined commitment to solve and then break free from the puzzles our brains enjoy so much so that they are then able to touch into a much simpler, yet greater reality.

That simple reality is this: We're all spiritual beings, each with the same spiritual essence and foundation within. Some choose to become aware of this — make that inner connection — but most don't. However, it is available to everyone.

Key Takeaway...

"...what Bruce teaches is universal truth. Truth that will hold up regardless of time and place. Truth that can be verified and experienced by yourself! I feel like Bruce has given me a GPS to independently navigate to my destination."

Upon meeting me, you would never know that my perspective and foundation are firmly planted in spiritual understanding, unless we had an in-depth conversation about Spirituality. And then, you still might not know.

Typically, I don’t bring up those topics during conversations. When others bring them up, though, 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'd prefer they answer me.

Like many people, when speaking with others, 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. That’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 energies and the choices we make, either unconsciously — as most do — or consciously.

One aspect of Enlightenment is recognizing from which aspect of the 'Self' our words originate: The Ego self, or the True Self? This is a big part of 'consciousness'.

This inner awareness 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 the essence of the spiritual awakening so many seek.

Key Takeaway...

My path was not easy. In fact, it was a struggle. Your path doesn’t have to be as difficult as mine. 

I am a skeptic by nature and an analytical person. Very left-brained. I want to see and feel tangible evidence before I'm willing to believe and 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 so that I can teach and explain this information in great detail and in a way that is both accessible and actionable.

There have been many wonderful gurus who just know and 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 seeking; a journey that 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. 

Spirituality is For Everyone

It is my hope and desire to share with any and all who also have interest in elevating their quality of life the knowledge and wisdom that years of seeking and building inner awareness has 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.

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. And always remember, even if you choose to ignore your innate Spiritual nature, that 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.

Be well. Be aware. Be you.

Thank you and warmest regards...
