Dedication: This site is dedicated to Minnie Lee Arthur-Walls, 1887-1963, she who was grandmother, mother, friend and the greatest of all influences on my life–she who, without knowing, caused me to question, expend and expand myself in uncommon thinking–above and beyond the surface of what is accepted as “the norm” in tradition…a trait which has and will characterize the whole of my material existence… I loved you, then, grandmother; I love you,now…and forever more…
In my mind it is not about “me.” This is why I could never become a well-known actor or musician. For the dancing monkey, it is all-about-me.
For this original…the message is all-important. The messenger is not…
What is important to know about me?
…My principles and values by which I ever strive to live my life…
Here are the principles by which I choose to live my life:
(556.6) 48:7.6 4. Few mortals ever dare to draw anything like the sum of personality credits established by the combined ministries of nature and grace. The majority of impoverished souls are truly rich, but they refuse to believe it.
(556.8) 48:7.8 6. To enjoy privilege without abuse, to have liberty without license, to possess power and steadfastly refuse to use it for self-aggrandizement — these are the marks of high civilization.
Do I always and perfectly live up to these principles and values? No.
My life is full of failures and mistakes in the eyes of others.
In my view, it has always been a growing and changing, chameleon-like life of increasing experience, deepening understanding and wisdom, self-awareness, soul-consciousness and the slow-but-sure perfecting of a spiritual experience-spiritual existence…
Along this path less traveled…I never expected to be “understood.” I hoped I would be understood by those closest to me.
Everything in my experience seems to point at teaching me a very profound set of principles…the primary of which are:
- Expect less, if not nothing from others… Try to fully appreciate what another is willing to give without there being any expectation attached to it…beforehand and in the future…
- Happiness never comes from an external source (another person or thing.) Happiness must spring up from deep inside you from the Source Eternal. That is the only happiness which brings lasting peace.
That’s enough, for now… I may add to this as time passes…
Suffice it to say… Every poem, article and music speaks volumes about who I have been, who I am and who I am becoming…if you are really listening…
