Throughout the decades, I learned from a wide range of teachers. Their work continually fed me, and thus, they became significant influences. However, they never replaced my direct experience or the effort required to develop my philosophy. In other words, no teacher became THE teacher, and I am grateful that many of them made that task easier by revealing their imperfections.
The key to clarity was to test everything and discover what worked. Sometimes a simple insight unlocked doors I never thought could be opened. At other times, slow growth yielded its pearls over a period of time. No one could tell me what "it" was . . . I had to find out for myself.
"You are a livingness, a verb, what is arising in you at this moment is the great realization."
A spiritual teacher should never make a student dependent upon themselves. They should emphasize self-reliance through direct experience. It is their job to point the student in a well-tested direction. It is not their job to keep the student returning for endless awakenings. The point is to find the path in yourself, wherever you are, at any time. The goal of a spiritual teacher should be just that . . . to help you become who you already are.
May you will find the keys to unlock the answers you seek and discover the tools to redeem your inner sovereignty and magic — maybe this website will help along the way. Thank you.
