March 21, 1983 marked the beginning of a remarkable journey that would last a lifetime. This journey has been shared with my family, many dear friends, and countless audiences throughout the world. I have been blessed to observe the emotional impact created by the retelling of the stories from this journey. Stories that make people laugh with joy, cry with compassion and think differently with love about life in general; all through the efforts to educate, share life’s learning experiences, and to grow society’s embrace of the truth through moral and ethical principles.

Truth…What exactly is it?
My friend Mr. Webster says it is something that corresponds to facts or reality; honest and sincere.
We have all been told as a child it was something you should always tell to others; so it must be a form of communication. Whenever we didn’t tell the truth we were told that we were telling a lie; so the truth by default is the opposite of lying or saying what is not true. To complicate the situation further, we can honestly believe we are telling the truth but the person we are speaking with can honestly believe that we are lying to them; causing tremendous disruption to any meaningful trust associated with the topic of our discussion. This differing opinion, as to whether our statement is truth or false, can be based solely on our understanding of one another as well as the information available to us at that time. On occasion, we will even allow irrelevant evidence to invade the topic in question. This sort of confusion definitely hinders our clear identification of the truth resulting in the ongoing search to explain exactly what we are supposed to do with this mysterious thing we call the truth.

The title of Genius is a very prestigious one, denoting a level of intelligence rarely found in the general population. Assets to the world, these talented people are elevated by the public, mainly because of the sense of awe that they generate in their area of specialty. It is through their efforts that they strive for amazing physical feats in the sporting arenas, explore the hidden secrets of our own minds, or create unimaginable beauty in a timeless masterpiece of art. As with all benefits, so come the challenges. Due to the uniqueness of their impressive gift, a Genius is prone to an elitist attitude.
They are special and they know it.
The great Greek philosophers solved the mysteries of thought centuries ago by writing the Three Laws of Thought. They determined and explained these undeniable truths so that future civilizations would not have to struggle to communicate with one another. The thoughts are universal and apply to every rational human on earth. Being laws of nature, they cannot be changed or edited by mankind. No matter how bad some people wish to do so, they have no power over the truth. There are many laws of nature; laws of physics, science, ecology and psychology just to name a few. They all form the basis of what we know as universal truths. It is the compilation of these truths that form the basis for wise reasoning. Without truth there can be no wisdom. Without wisdom we can never learn to solve our problems for good.
A successful businessman was growing old and he knew that it was time to choose a successor to take over the business. Instead of choosing one of his directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.
He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you.” The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a seed today – one very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.” Continue reading “The Seed; A Lesson in Business”
I have been blessed both with joy and sometime saddened by the emails from people who have read my book, “The Bloodline of Wisdom, The Awakening of a Modern Solutionary”. Most are just comments about the book but some are much more touching. Like this one.
“…I have made many unwise decisions in my life and sadly most of them fell under what the book describes as “careless decision making”. As a young woman I dated and married a man who was the love of my life. My parents both disliked him and tried very hard to dissuade me from marrying him. So much so I married him to their disapproval doing so outside of the Church. Mistake one. Continue reading “Wisdom from a Mother”
“The Democratic Party is the party of the poor and the working class.”
Presidential Candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders
Definitions classify us but if they are true then we must live with the consequences.
You cannot turn on the radio or television during an election year without hearing a candidate of the Democratic Party telling you that if you are poor or working you should agree, accept, and endorse their policies, agendas, and ideologies. As with many things, I don’t like to have anyone that I do not trust telling me what I should or shouldn’t believe. It was the above quote that caused me to reflect on this mindset since my working status clumps me into their demographically aligned pool. Continue reading “Governance vs. Social Engineering”

Springtime is a lovely time of the year. The air is filled with the smells of blossoms and fresh cut grass. The comfortable temperatures entice and draw us to enjoy the outdoors. This weekend will be no different in those ways but you will have the added benefit of seeing many stars and stripes flapping in the breeze. Your family may take part in a parade or host a family picnic to recognize a special group of loved ones that you wish to remember. Regardless of the activities you participate in this weekend; I hope we all set aside time to celebrate this most righteous of holidays. For it is as a united Country that we should set aside our differences to come together as a whole to honor and memorialize those brave men and women who gave their all so that each of us can continued to live in freedom, liberty, and peace.
