Biography

In my last blog I told you that I was going to tell you how you could know God directly, free from faith, experiences of energy, and other subtle experiences. If I didn’t quite say that I am saying it now. But the obvious question is how can you trust me?

You might think, "Here is a guy coming out of nowhere, onto the airwaves telling me that I can know God directly; hmmm!" Well perhaps I could give you an impressive resume with such facts as, “I started meditating in 1965 when I heard that you find God by looking within.”

And you might say “wow 43 years, that’s a long time.” But God’s infinite, isn’t he or she? Compared to that 43 years in nothing. Furthermore, I don’t want you to take 43 years to know God. As you will see that’s much too long.

So I think I’ll have to find another way to establish some trust, won’t I? In order to do this I am going to bring in part of the introduction to “Making Your Wisdom Come Alive”. I’m the author, so of course I would recommend this book as a straightforward way to get to the heart of this matter.

What I hope you will do is look and see if what I say meets these qualifications:

If I was to tell you that you could stand as Infinite Wisdom and Bliss, could you believe me? How would you know that this book is not written from a figment of my imagination? How would you know that it comes from real experience accessible to anyone?

I would like to set up three tests to show the validity of the knowledge contained within this book:

First, is what I am saying reasonable? Does it make sense or is it some mystical mumbo jumbo that is incomprehensible. After reading this book, I think you will see that the Sages of old actually wanted you to understand what they were saying. You'll see that spirituality and reason are not opposites.

Secondly, can you experience this? If you can't experience what I say, what good is it?

Thirdly, am I the only one to experience this or has this knowledge been passed down throughout the ages?

If you feel that this book meets these three tests, I would encourage you to open up your mind. Perhaps here, in this little book, you can discover the secret teachings, passed down from antiquity, that when discovered have made many people exceedingly joyful.
