Spirituality has been part of my life since I was a child, but at 15 years old when I had what most would call a Born Again experience with Jesus and the Holy Spirit while confessing in a Lutheran church one Wednesday night that it was amplified a thousand fold. After his sermon the minister invited us to come down and confess our sins to God, and while I was reluctant at first, I eventually did go, and it changed my life. In the beginning I was unsure of how to even do it, but in a short time I was on my knees sincerely pleading to God (to the point of tears) that I be forgiven for my having stolen two candy bars from a grocery store (and getting myself and by brother busted) and and also for stealing something for a model car I had. And my prayer was heard. Suddenly in the midst of my crying I felt Yeshua’s Presence and all of the pain and suffering I had been feeling left my body, and then I felt the Holy Spirit enter and I found myself feeling washed and clean. At at that point my only tears were those of joy, and for over two weeks following that I was in sheer bliss.
That was just the beginning of a series of extraordinary events which eventually led me to my wife Mary who was an exceptionally gifted psychic, a gift which was given her by Yeshua when she was only five years old. It was a marriage in some ways in Heaven, and in some ways we were both very human, but we began teaching not long after we were married at the age of 26 and we began working together teaching meditation, spiritual development and then doing energy healing a year later.
In a more worldly sense I have degrees in Electrical Engineering Technology, an MScD (Metaphysical Science Doctorate) and I studied Kria Yoga with the Self Realization Fellowship. Additionally, I am an Ordained Metaphysical Minister, a Certified Past Life Regressionist, and Certified Reiki Master Teacher in the Tibetan Usui tradition.
In the mid 1990’s my beloved Mary passed at the age of 44 after several years of experiencing mini strokes and the resulting dementia, and her death was overwhelming for me to the extent that one night a year later I sat on the loveseat in our home “beside myself” as she would have described it, feeling lost and alone, and I cried out to God in an impassioned plea to awaken me. Little did I know that plea set into motion my becoming a recluse Monk and spending most of my time over the next ten years meditating, praying, and continuing my study of spirituality, psychology, metaphysics and various healing modalities.
Eventually my quest for enlightenment took me into the forests of the southwest U.S. and a Jeep and tent became my home for over five of those years. During that time I experienced several Spiritual Awakenings where the Truth of our Being was revealed to me, and what Yeshua called “The Kingdom” was also revealed several times. As He told Thomas in The Gospel of Thomas, it IS within us and it is also all around us at the same time. A brief synopsis of my experiences are in my ebook “Living In The Body Of God” which will soon be available on this website as well as on my sister site at https://spontaneousawakening.com.
These awakening experiences subsequently led me to have to learn about the ego and how John was “wired up” and how to resolve the dysfunctional egoic constructs, which in turn eventually led me to teaching others how to do the same. Egoic constructs and the false beliefs we have about “self” and our world keep us from knowing who and what we really are, and they keep us from being able to experience the beautiful and magical NOW and live from the heart in Present Moment Awareness. In short they are precisely why we don’t know we are embodiments of God in Creation.
Over the years I’ve come to discover that a natural process of Spiritual Awakening will happen of its own accord if we learn how to cooperate with it. God actually WANTS us to Awaken and to know Who and What We are, and with persistence and determination we can all experience our Divinity.. meaning if we continue it will reveal the Truth until we finally come to know ourselves beyond the identity and programming of the ego and realize we have been an unlimited Being of Light all along. In other words, we will find that there is no “me”.. it’s all an illusion. But that’s when the fun really begins.
