I cannot help but think of the Beatles song ‘When I’m 64’ as I turn 64 today and it still amazes me that I’m here. I never thought I would make it past 30 years of age and now to live so long is something.
Looking back over my life I had some good times, but unfortunately the last 30 years have been difficult because of severe health problems. What I’m most grateful for is the fact that I’ve been able to help and inspire people no matter what my situation has been.
I would like to thank all of you in your support of my efforts in reaching out to people from all walks of life to encourage and enlighten them on their path. I’m grateful that the work that I have been doing has helped people that I do not even know. It takes a lot of work to do social media every day, but I receive messages from people telling me that I have changed their life even though we have never spoken. There are days when I’m so sick or in so much pain that I do not feel like working on the Internet, but these messages, from people like you, keep me inspired and I know that I’m helping others.
People think that because you are doing spiritual work everything in your life should be perfect, but that’s not always the case. Many other spiritual workers have written to me telling me that they find themselves having illness and not sure how to proceed in their spiritual work feeling like they are somehow a failure. Everything happens for reason and I believe in my particular case that the hardships that I go through have been for the refining of my soul. I would never have known who I really was if life had been easy for me.

I do want to thank those of you who have followed me over the years and contributed to some special moments in my life. I thank all of my clients who I have taught and have taught me.
I am grateful to everyone that has used my services privately. As a small business person this recession has really hit my business tremendously. The feedback that I receive tells me that I have helped people on their path and given them direction.
This quotation from the song by Frank Sinatra I feel pretty much sums up my life. “Let the record show I took the blows and did it my way.”
