Who do you think you are?

This is a question that philosophers have been asking for millenniums. How and why did this whole universe begin? Why are human beings here? What is their purpose? We could get very broad and deep about the answers, or we could just probe our own selves and say that we are here to integrate our lives and to take everything that we haven’t appreciated and loved, and appreciate and love it. We are here to live our lives to the fullest. We are here to be inspired by and thankful for our existence and reach out to expand and explore our greatest human awareness and potential and live to the farthest reaches of our capacities during our physical earthly existence.

What event or series of events led to your discovery?

When I was seventeen, I had the opportunity to meet a great teacher named Paul C. Bragg. My life changed as a result of meeting him on the North Shore of Oahu in the Sunset Recreation Hall at Weimea Bay. I listened to him speak that night. He was an elderly man who taught great wisdom. That night I listened to him speak about the body, mind, and soul and the impact they have on our life potential. Listening to him at that meeting that special night was certainly a life-changing event for me. I became inspired and decided that I wanted to dedicate the rest of my life to studying what he termed Universal Laws as they relate to the body, mind and soul, particularly as they relate to healing, probably because I had a health problem at the time. I wanted to become a teacher, healer and philosopher, step foot in every country on the face of the earth and share my research findings with people to help them live inspired and magnificent lives. That is what came to me that night and that’s all I’ve been focusing on and living for the last thirty-five years.

If you could give advice to people who are still searching for their purpose in life, what would it be? It is wise to scan your life and look at all the actions that you’ve taken that have inspired you and find the common thread in each of them. Look at where your skills are most profound. Look at what you have done that has been most inspiring, most meaningful and most purposeful to you and synthesize these. This will point you in a meaningful direction. Everything in your life is actually directing you. When you experience tears of gratitude in your eyes, you’re on track. So pay close attention to those moments.

Doing what you love and loving what you do is the key to living a fulfilling life. If you look at who your heroes have been, what you’ve studied most, what you thought about most, what you’ve mastered most, what you’re inspired by most, and integrate them, you’ll discover what your mission in life really is.

I wrote my initial mission statement when I was with Paul Bragg in 1972 and refined it fifty-seven times since then. I read it every day. I have it in front of me right now. My mission is what I’m up to; it’s the highest priority I have in my life. I’ve also focused on documenting all the objectives that I intend to accomplish in my life and keep record of them all as they emerge and become fulfilled. I have the largest collection of goals, and the largest collection of experiences to feel gratitude for, of anyone I know. If you can imagine thirty-five years worth – every single day, that’s a lot of gratitudes.

I’ve been writing, reading and refining my mission statement, goal book, gratitude book and accomplishment book since I was seventeen, and I’m fifty-three now. So I’m a big believer in defining and refining and re-defining and re-refining your dreams, constantly polishing exactly how you would love your life to be, and being realistic and inspired by the vision of your destiny. Making sure it’s truly what you would love to have as your destiny. If you can’t wait to get up in the morning and go and live it then you’re clear and on track. If for some reason you’re still not inspired by your life and your mission, then you obviously have not yet clearly defined and refined enough.
