A Funny Thing Happened To Me After I Kept My Nose To The Grindstone

A funny thing happened to me after I got out of university. I had been a really good student, so I kept my nose to the grindstone like I had always been taught. I lost my sanity.

This was many years ago. Maybe you know what I’m talking about.

The year was 1975. So I left my job, got out my backpack and spent the next year on the road. I hitchhiked (mostly) from Vancouver, in Canada, to South America to find myself. My intention was to end up in Bolivia. I only made it as far as the border of Peru and Ecuador and then found out I had hepatitis. Something I had eaten I was told. I turned around and flew home to Canada ASAP and spent the next two months in bed.

I’d been gone a long time by then and when I came back my life was changed. I dumped my budding career as an arctic biologist and the pressure to get ever more graduate accolades. For the moment I just knew I needed to work with my hands. I started fixing homes. It got me out of my head and gave me a sense of being grounded. My parents were very disappointed with me. You see, I was throwing my life away. On the other hand I had to follow the dictates of my heart. I also started practicing yoga and meditation.

What I did gain was an ability to FEEL. I stopped living inside my brain. I gradually stopped analyzing and calculating everything and started to regain my sense of wonder and appreciation that was normal for me as a kid.

Something else happened to me. Much later, I also started to find out I had a sensitivity of touch that others didn’t seem to have. At least it appeared that way. I began to teach others to extend their ability to feel using a method which I later called Sacred Touch.

There is a catch. You can ONLY have that type of ability if you can get out of your head. The whole thing is an ongoing process.

So in some parts of this blog I have attempted to share with you some food for thought, exercises, meditations and lifestyle changes to develop our innate ability to feel and be human BEings. Sounds interesting? It really is quite a journey.

I gratefully accept your comments and feedback.



May there be peace in our hearts.

May there be peace for all humanity.

May there be perfect peace on earth.
