I was born in Switzerland, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, I came to the US 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 stretches 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.
Please know that I'm only the messenger. It's sharing the subject that is the point. But you do need to know something about who I am to be writing on a topic like this, my qualifications to ask the question IS ETERNITY ALREADY HERE and think I have the answer. It's just who I am. When a tree starts to grow it will be what it was programmed for inside the seed. I was preprogramed to explore the relationship of the physical and spiritual dimensions. That's what my life has been about, and after fifty years of study and countless experiences of the spiritual dimension, I'm an expert on the subject. I wanted to know what are we, where did we come from, why are we here, where we go after we die and if there is someplace, where is that, what's it like and the best way to get there. Most important, how can we live hand in hand with the spiritual dimension while we are here.
So what kind of brain can get into a topic like this? As opposed to a person who has a linear career, I'm someone whose life was like a smorgasbord. It was really open - ended. I was attracted to the human potential movement and began years of meditation as a devotee at Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship. I was able to break through and reach the superconscious. I later learned about the subconscious and its powers from earning my credentials as a hypnotherapist.
I majored in Geology at Rutgers and since I was already fluent in French decided to minor in Russian. I added Spanish in the second year, and today am fluent in Spanish and with teleprompter help could still do French, German and Russian. After two years at Rutgers, I went to LA where I became a professional actor and song writer. I played Sir Bruce in Warner Bros film CAMELOT, and you can hear Linda Ronstadt sing my song CARNIVAL BEAR on YouTube. Besides song writer and musician, I am also a singer and with my wife sang in Roger Duffer's award-winning Inland Master Chorale for fourteen years.
I'm a business owner and had my own marketing business. Still today I have a company that restores classic cars. You can see some of our projects on FB at /classicridesfactory. I have always loved flying and became a private pilot and owned my own planes. Part of me is a mountain man and I lived in the Southern California mountains for many years. I'm a poet and wrote a book of poems in 1972 during my mystic period you can see at www.word-songs.org.
The main point I want to make here is that this journey is not about me, it's about us. I'm just a messenger, one part of a Universal Team doing my share to help us remember what we really are as souls in a multi-dimensional reality, help open the door to the power of love waiting for our invitation to uplift our lives and flow through us into our world. We are a team of souls that decided to take on human body spacesuits to live a human life and explore a physical world and we need to know what, where, when, how and why. We can do this together! I hope you will become part of this mission.
As for the bottom line of all this, Einstein says it best in what he wrote to his daughter:
So you have something to relate to, here are photos of me taken over the years. The top left is from 1945 at the end of the WW II, and yes, I did live under the Battle of Britain and the blitz and remember it. Lower left is an acting shot from when I was around 27, in the hat photo I was around 60, next is at our mountain cabin when I was around 75. I was 80 when I was given a helicopter flying lesson b-day present. At right I'm with my sweetheart and our German shepherd Rocky.
"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."
