A spiritual being having a human experience, I have led an interesting life in this body. Upon my soul’s entry into physical form, I felt in touch with my spirit from a very early age. Questioning the interpretation of reality presented by my own senses, the only truth I found was my connection with the Creator. Exploring the mysteries of life and searching for the answers to classic questions like “Why am I here?” and “What is life all about?” made my personal spirituality my primary focus.
While in youthful physical form, my Karma attracted I me to science and math thereby embracing the fascinating mechanical aspects of life. Marveling at how things worked, I was intrigued by complex designs. At age six, I routinely disassembled clocks, lamps, and play toys reassembling them all without a hitch. Building blocks and left over hardware scraps were a huge source of entertainment and an outlet for my creativity.
My inquiring spirit found a similar fascination with personal relationships. In them, I discovered something new—my emotions transcended physical form and bonded with my insatiable search for understanding. Puzzled by the conflicting priorities between the heart and the mind, I sought balance after permitting my mind to manage—and correspondingly ruin—these relationships.
Along my passionate journey, I consistently chose love and desired to experience it at its highest level. While enjoying the physical form, love’s emotional intensity far exceeded anything my body desired. Like dissecting a clock, I wanted to explore all there was to know about this unique feeling. Love is still my primary journey, and one that appears to have no end.
When finding my soul mate, Althea, our immediate attraction was like two magnets jumping towards each other, and my journey seemed complete. From the first moments of our meeting we were inseparable. Different from enmeshment, our respect and encouragement for individual choice and unquestioning support led us to live a life of unconditional love and happiness that poets ponder.
