Who I think I am is not who I am. I am the One who lives when all thoughts, both subtle and grosss, cease. I sleep and play this drama of life and death. I awake and see that the drama goes on without me; it is not really I who is the actor here. I do not have a body. This dream body is a child of Mother Nature. It is really not mine. I scan this world and it appears to be a travail of tears. Mother Nature does not create sorrow. All sorrow is a product of the mind. Purify the mind and sorrow cannot exist. Only in Joy can the natue of the world be known. Only in unalloyed Bliss can the nature of me be known. Purify your mind and you will know me. I am not other than you.

Wild Fact About Me ran (rowed) away to Blake Island to live as a sanyasi when 15.
My Philosophy Virtue is necessary to control the mind. Mind control is needed to surrender to God. Surrender is necessary for perpetural joy. Joy is needed for detachment/renunciation. All these are needed to overcome consumerism, injustice, pollution, environmental destruction, and all this useless technology that adds nothing to the inner person.
What Gives Me Hope Emerald (my daughter)and others dedicated to virtue, service and personal growth.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Eliminate government sponsored (controlled) education (mind control). Education is perhaps the greatest impediment to true learning. Everything important I learned I learned inspite of school. The assumption that the purpose of education is money needs to be replaced with the assumption that its purpose is wisdom and virtue.
