I was born in Switzerland, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, I came to the USA after spending many years in England and Canada. My father was British and my mother Swiss- American so we spoke English at home. Over my lifetime, while I only have passports for two of them, I felt like a citizen of four different countries speaking three different languages, well four, because the native Swiss German dialect is quite different from German.
I have great memories of Switzerland. With its Alps and lakes it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Where I lived as a child up on Mt Pelerin above Vevey and Lake Geneva, I could look down and see this, the Chateau de Chillon on the edge of the lake with what are called the Dents du Midi in the distance.
In America are what we call the American Alps, the spectacular North Cascade mountain range that stretched from Northern California into British Columbia. America also has vast plains, deserts, spectacular coastlines and sandy beaches. With Yosemite, giant sequoias and redwoods and with all its diversity, America in my mind is the most beautiful country in the world.
So who am I to be writing on a topic like this? I have always felt as if I f were preprogramed to explore the relationship of the normal to the paranormal, physical to spiritual. I wanted answers to my questions, who are we, where did we come from, why are we here, what's the best way to live, and where do we go from here? Are we just one of many species evolved on our planet, or are we something more than just human animals?
I have lived a very eclectic life. I completed grade 13 in Canada and moved with my family to White Plains, New York. I went to Rutgers where I majored in geology. Since I was already fluent in French, I wanted something different so minored in Russian. In my second year I took Spanish. I was also a member of ROTC, and remained at Rutgers for two years until I completes my AA degree.
I then moved to California where I became a professional actor in TV and film while also working in the music business as a manager and song writer. I was attracted to the human potential movement and began many years of practical study including in Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship. After many years I reached the superconscious, then learned about the subconscious when I earned my credentials as a hypnotherapist.
From my lifelong love of planes and flying, I became a pilot and over the years owned several aircraft. I invented the iron-on decal process for full color photographs and the first big order was 100,000 pieces for the film JAWS. I owned a marketing and publishing business in the LA area. We remade the corporate image for Athens Disposal, a 60-year-old company in Los Angeles. The logo we designed continues to be displayed on the side of their trucks today.
From a diverse life like mine, it is easy to see why I have a life approach with no time for anything except solid evidence and the logical conclusions they lead to. Quantum physics helps us understand that what we think is reality is not. My journeys showed me that we can remember, we can reconnect with our real selves. And we do this when we download the love from Spirit selves into our hearts and lives. My mission with all this is to help everyone re-connect to Spirit so we can all lead our lives enfolded in its uplifting love.
I like to remember what Einstein wrote to his daughter:
"If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer. When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life."
As for me personally, I'm blessed with a strong body, started this day with a power walk, jogging, and ended my exercise routine with 40 pushups. The photos of me are taken over the years. Lower left was in 1945 at the end of the WW II. Below it is an acting shot from when I was around 27. In the hat photo I was around 60. Next was at our mountain cabin when I turned 75. I was 80 when I was given a helicopter flying lesson b-day present. At right I'm with my sweetheart and our dog Rocky.
But this journey is not about me. I think of myself as just one part of a Universal team. I'm doing my share to help us remember the power of love waiting for our invitation to uplift our lives and flow through us to others in the world. I hope you will become part of this mission. Thank you for letting me share with you.
