Birthday Jan 30, 1958  
About Me My Spirit is immortal, as everyone's spirit is, but I began this current incarnation in January 1958. At the time of my birth, the first American rocket was launched into space. I view this event as a metaphorical symbol of my life's meaningful purpose, "shooting for the stars", aiming to consciously manifest the highest level of love, grandeur, and creative transformational blessing power that is inherent to the reality nature of life. I unselfishly dedicate this purposive intention not only for my own personal benefit, but also for the benefit of all living beings. Like a powerful rocket overcoming the enormous gravitational pull of the earth, I intuitively believe that the entire human species is ultimately intended to harness the limitless synergistic, co-creative, blessing power of unselfish pure spiritual love to overcome all absolute limitations of suffering and evil negativity, and return Home together to the Divine Source from which love, life, and limitless blessings flow, which is a Great Mystery Supreme Grandeur that surpasses all limited conceptions.

In terms of my career, I am working as a teacher, in the field of World History/Global Cultures, and related areas of study. I am also an inspirational writer. The writings that I am currently working on focus primarily upon Optimal Human Relationship and Interpersonal Communication, as a basis of Psychological Maturation, Spiritual Fulfillment, Holistic Healing, and Creative Inspiration.

My personal lifestyle and ethical values are very wholesome, grounded in my substantial sense of integrity and constructive psychological maturity. I am a very sincere, trustworthy, compassionate, warmhearted, empathic, intuitive, unselfish, emotionally generous, open-minded, cheerful, relaxed, good-humored, tolerant, non-judgmental, accepting, person. I treasure deeply caring relationships with family and friends. I would like to make friends with other members of this network who share at least some of my basic values, as discussed above.

In my writing and dialogues with other people, I like to explore how inspirational, transformational, insightful, creative work, in any field of endeavor, can be enhanced through a process of heartfelt loving empathic communion with other individuals, the world of nature, one's own creative media of expression, or any other activity or situation, as a process of non-dualistic attunement to the flowing truth of the here and now present moment. I am particularly interested in how great creative works and momentous breakthroughs in any field of endeavor can be inspired by a process of loving empathic attunement to the truth of the moment, as it relates to the unfolding "song", "story", and "vision" of one's own being, as well as deep communion with other individuals, situations, and activities that one encounters in an open-hearted, open-minded, responsive, manner, grounded in a sense of total sincerity, integrity, coherence, or alignment with the compassionate core of one's own being and the relational, dynamically fluid energy field of life as love. In the books that I am currently writing, I also discuss how caring human relationships, involving good interpersonal communication, unselfish generosity of spirit, and synergistic/co-creative connection of hearts and minds, can contribute to the progressive transformation and revitalization of individuals, groups, creative arts, global cultures, and contemporary society. Relatedly, I have a strong interest in discussing ways of developing a deeply caring, inclusive, sense of local and global community, grounded in a sense of sacred kinship or family feeling between all people, and all living beings. This also involves developing greater awareness of the natural relatedness between all living beings, phenomena, and aspects of reality.

I invite dialogue with anyone who resonates with this message and vision. Together, we can change this world for the better, because the force of Love that flows through our connection is a limitless, inexhaustible, creative power of goodness and blessing.

Wild Fact About Me I am a person of considerable depth, sensitivity, and sincerity. I can be very playful, funny, spontaneous, and even zany, at times, although I also have a rather serious side.
My Philosophy Our real self is a relational self; the non-relational selfish ego is not our real self. Therefore, we are most substantially enriched by what we unselfishly contribute to the lives of other individuals. True self-discovery and self-enhancement comes from unselfishly serving others, rather than from narcissistic self-preoccupation or presumptive self-definition. Relatedly, the only way to discover what is most fully alive in oneself is to help bring out what is most fully alive in other individuals.
What Gives Me Hope What brings me hope is recognizing that there is an essential goodness in everyone, no matter how deeply buried and dormant it may be. I recognize that, at some level, everyone is, truly, beautiful in their own special way, and I greatly enjoy bringing out the special inner beauty and creative muse of other individuals.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would encourage people to recognize that the selfish "me" attitude does not bring real and lasting happiness, whereas the unselfish relational "we" attitude does bring great happiness, in feeling deeply connected to others, in a true and deep sense of community.

Role Models  
Quotation 1) Martin Buber ("The Way of Response"): "All real living is meeting."

2) St. Exupery ("The Little Prince"):
"Only the heart sees clearly, because what is essential is not visible to the eyes."

3) Lakota Instructions for Living:
"Friend, do it this way-that is,
whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can
with both our heart and mind.

And if you do it that way,
the Power of The Universe
will come to your assistance,
if your heart and mind are in Unity.

When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible because
All Of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the Honor of one is the honor of all.
And whatever we do affects everything in the universe.

If you do it that way-that is,
if you truly join your heart and mind
as One-whatever you ask for,
that's the Way It's Going to Be."
