Life is! It is an opportunity for experience and spiritual growth. There is no hidden meaning; we create meaning and value by how we live.

    
I was born in Germany and lived there for 18 years before, during and after WWII. Having personally experienced the horrors and senselessness of war, I began questioning traditional values associated with nationalism and organized religion, and I soon realized that human governments cannot legislate truth or freedom, cannot establish true values and cannot give purpose to our lives.

After emigrating from my homeland, I moved from one location to another, trying to establish a new home in eastern Canada and in the western United States, but growing no permanent roots anywhere. Having no strong attachments to any particular place has given me a sense of cosmopolitan citizenship. My home is planet Earth. I feel most secure and at home in pristine, natural surroundings, wherever they can still be found. I have similarly not become attached to any particular ethnic, cultural or religious way of life. This has permitted me to look beyond ethnic traditions and religious doctrines and pursue my quest for truth and freedom without these constraints.

My viewpoints, opinions and convictions have crystallized out of a lifelong study of the world's philosophies, sciences and religions. I have taken ideas from many sources of knowledge and integrated these with my own experiences and with my professional knowledge of physics and engineering in order to construct a self-consistent world view. My personal philosophy has been influenced by early Eastern Philosophy, by the Idealism and Romanticism of the eighteenth century and by New Age thought. Other contributions have come from my knowledge of Western science, from my sense of logic and through my intuitions. I have found many truths in the writings of Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Schelling, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Carl Jung, Khalil Gibran, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, Werner Erhard, Stewart Emery, Terry Cole-Whittaker and many others.

Additional information

Following are some sentiments and quotes from my recently published book, "In Search of Truth and Freedom:"

About life, Creation and evolution:
Life is not an accidental by-product of evolutionary events on Earth, but is the primary characteristic of the Spirit of Creation, which pervades the entire universe, transcending itself into ever more magnificent expressions of consciousness in a process of continual cosmic evolution (Chapters 9 and 11).

"Evolution is the process by which Creation perfects itself, on a cosmic scale as well as in each individual being" (p.193).

“The path, as well as the goal, is spiritual growth" (p. 56).

About truth and wisdom:
"The universe is with us when we come from the truth. ... Real truth is endowed with the power of Creation. There is nothing else of value" (p. 54).

"The search for truth is a journey of sel-discovery, out of the darkness of ignorance into the light of understanding" (p. 55).

"We all have accumulated much knowledge, but we understand so little. Only through wisdom [and love] can we understand the truth" (p. 55).

About mind and consciousness:
"True consciousness ... is a higher-order awareness of being aware. Consciousness is the spirit experiencing the rational activity of the mind-brain system" (p. 72).

About freedom, love, fear and beauty:
"Fear thrives in the absence of spiritual consciousness. Fear takes over wherever love is not" (p. 207).

"The greatest victory in the fight for freedom is the conquest over fear" (p. 207).

"The path from darkness to light, from ignorance to wisdom, from fear to love, is also the road from bondage to freedom" (p. 199).

"Beauty is the touchstone of the spirit" (p. 244).
