I am W. Allan. I am a graduate Harris Teachers College and Washington University in St. Louis, Mizzery. I lived in Mizzery until I moved to Florida in 1984, and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.
I have no background in writing, and if my English Comp. Teacher knew that my ABG column was read with some enthusiasm around the world today, she would roll over in her grave. Thank God for "Spell Check" and "Grammar Correction".
If I were to be allowed only one word to describe myself it would be "curious". As far back as I can remember; I have been curious about why things were as they were. Of course, I realize now that things are as they are, only as far as my perceptions interpret them to be.
I have learned that reality is not all that simple. Things are as they are, only to the extent, as they appear to be to the physical senses, and we all live in a world of appearances. I have learned that if you want to find what lies inside of the inside, you must to a large extent, set aside the intellect and release the intuitions.
I guess you could classify me as a "wonderer", since I have always wondered about what lies beneath the physical world that our senses present to us. I always knew there was more to reality than was apparent to the casual observer, and at that time I was a casual observer.
I now reside in Bonita Springs, on the outskirts of Naples Florida. I sometimes use Naples as my place or residence, rather than Bonita Springs, simply because Naples is more well known. I have lived in Florida for some 25 years now, moving here in 1984 from St. Louis.
I began writing articles some 15 years ago for a few spiritual/metaphysical magazines, but found early on that I always met with some frustration, since the normal magazine allots only 1000 words or about 1 full page to their articles, one page and no more.
I learned early on that I just could not explain the difficult universal concepts that I wanted to talk about in 1000 words or less, so I quit doing that.
Sometime later, I stumbled on the blog format and set up the "ANSWERS BY GOD" blog web site. This blog format offered me more latitude in writing my articles and the available space only limited by my own good sense, which I have never been accused of exercising too rigorously in the past.
I still found this inadequate, since my goal was to help others understand concepts that are barely able to be grasped by the human brain, and that kind of knowledge cannot be explained in 500 words or less. So now, thanks to technology and the e-publishing book format, I can finally fully express my ideas and concepts, as I never could in the past.
The ABG blog web site contains hundreds of articles, condensed in content to fit the blog format, but it's a great place to review the nature of my book material. The "Enigma" books allow me to elaborate on some articles carried in the blog, but there is much more.
One important thing I have learned is that the individual personality knows no limitations. Translation; you can truly be whatever you believe you can be, so don't sell yourself short. Believe big.
