I was born in 1947, "The Year of the UFO," and it only got more interesting from there. My mom said that when I was little, I would "say the oddest things." They weren't odd to me, though. You mean, everybody doesn't see The City of Light in the sky? Nor fly all over town at night, having some trouble clearing the power lines, or float up out of bed and bump their nose on the ceiling? Everybody is not on a quest for The Lost Knowledge, and if not, why not? Then, as an adult, isn't it rather common for state troopers to verify my 90-minute UFO sighting, to suddenly become a composer of movie-theme-like scores of music, and get featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal in 1990? There are many more of such experiences presented in Part Two of this book. But, usually doing things a little differently, Part One is what's important. It presents what I have learned from all this. "Where do we come from, why do we die, what is God really like -- and how do I know?" These mysteries comprise the main body of "Metaphysical Principles, A Bigger Picture of God and Creation," the knowledge of which has sustained my life and outlook through the very worst of times, including the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. I believe it will help many others as well.
