In my last year of high school, I had electives I could take to finish my requirements for graduation. So, I took creative writing, etymology, and typing, among others.
At the time, I had no idea that taking these classes would set me on a course of writing poetry, articles and publishing. Without the typing class, I would have been and still would be handicapped in my ability to type and publish in a speedy way.
In 1969, I was introduced to The Urantia Book for the first time. Two strange men approached me, while I was working in a plating factory in Goshen, Indiana. I was not ready to accept the Fifth Epochal revelation, at that time.
In 1970, I was stationed on a barren mountain top in Turkey, overlooking the Marmara Sea. There, a tall man, a friendly giant of a man named George, introduced me to The Urantia Book. This was a very personal question and answer series of meetings, which lit a fire in me to buy the book and begin reading it.
Fifty (50) years later, I am still reading and studying the Fifth Epochal Revelation, which has, and still is laying the foundational framework with which my indwelling divine spirit partner–the Thought Adjuster is illuminating a portal of perception into the cosmic realities of the Local Universe, the Superuniverse, the Grand Universe, the Central Universe and Paradise.
I have chosen to dedicate my life path to sharing the great good fortune I have experienced through writing and publishing.
P.S. Creative writing, the study of etymology, and typing have remained “core essentials” in the life path I have traveled and am still traveling.
My Favorite Quotes
“It is not the mental immaturity of the child that I commend to you but rather the spiritual simplicity of such an easy-believing and fully-trusting little one. It is not so important that you should know about the fact of God as that you should increasingly grow in the ability to feel the presence of God.”Jesus, The Urantia Book (155:6.12
It is not so important to love all men today as it is that each day you learn to love one more human being. If each day or each week you achieve an understanding of one more of your fellows, and if this is the limit of your ability, then you are certainly socializing and truly spiritualizing your personality.The Urantia Book (100:4.6)
If each mortal could only become a focus of dynamic affection, this benign virus of love would soon pervade the sentimental emotion-stream of humanity to such an extent that all civilization would be encompassed by love, and that would be the realization of the brotherhood of man.The Urantia Book (100:4.6)
