"Magical philosophies, which have about 50-100K years under their belt (as opposed to science which goes back to the Renaissance), have always claimed that the world is made of words. It’s a thing of words. And if you know these words you can take it apart and put it together any old way that you wish.’ Terrence McKenna
Dear Friends:

Early in my life, I began peering into puns and exploring coded messages in symbols of the Alphabet. In the process, I made some significant discoveries that resonate with ancient wisdom and are more relevant today than they ever were before.

For instance, I came upon some Secret Spells of the English Language with which we write our own Life Sentences. I found a sprinkling of Sacred PathWords pointing us toward liberation. I learned that, in fact, We DO Come with Instructionsfor living empowered lives.

Then, once I recognized that language is software that programs our thinking, I realized how easily we can collectively, creatively Take Command of the English Language and upgrade it to convey a higher frequency of consciousness in our communications and inspire a greater frequency of kindness in our interactions.

If you have any doubt that intentionally upgrading English would be an especially good idea at this incredibly Orwellian mOMENt, here’s what Orwell, himself, had to say about it:

“…One ought to recognize that the present political chaos is connected with the decay of language, and that one can probably bring about some improvement by starting at the verbal end.”
Orwell was by no means the first philosopher to recommend that we start to heal the culture ‘at the verbal end.’ There have been many such voices – including that of Confucius – pointing to the need for what McKenna called ‘the forced evolution of language.’

As an Educational Entertainer, I demonstrate in verse and prose Why this is so necessary and How we can quite easily accomplish it together. Given that the Genesis myths of cultures around the world all say that it all began with the Word, this seems like the perfect time to discover just how powerful we can be as speakers of an upgraded language that inspires the best in us all.

With your kind and loving support – at whatever level feels good to you – I will be able to create high-quality videos and publish books of verse and prose from the extensive trove of materials I've created over the years. This will enable more and people to discover how we can evolve the language to evolve our species from humankind to HumanKindness. For as filmmaker Ken Burns so clearly stated in the documentary, Spellbound:

“It’s the most powerful force, I believe, on Earth – the English language!”
With Love & Great Fullness!

To date, The Secret Spells of the English Language has been my most popular video. It outlines our Life Sentence when we are adult (a dolt). But there’s also a life sentence for children. And I’ll share it with you once I have sufficient funding to create a high quality video – with illustrative graphics. Then you’ll see the ordinary words that sentence us in our early years – culminating in our adolescence (addle essence). Together these two ‘Life Sentences’ will make it clear to you why, as writer Charles Bukowski noted, “Almost everyone is born a genius and buried an idiot.”
