My guest was Scott Blum, author of a New Book series "Summer into Autumn", and co-founder of the hugely successful inspirational website DailyOM   www.dailyom.com    Through a semi-fictional sequence of events and an archetypel  cast of characters, his stories awaken us to new ideas, invite us to explore powerful spiritual and healing practices, and draw us into a mystical world where nothing happens by mere coincidence.

 I  talked with Scott about his two new books "Summer's Page" and "Waiting for Autumn" that are both linked into the same story. We discussed the spiritual implications and lessons for everyone.

Scott Blum is an author and co-founder of DailyOM, a popular, spiritually based website that offers inspirational messages, horoscopes and an on-line retail store. With over 900,000 subscribers it has become the premier on-line destination for providing motivational content, products and courses around the globe from some of today's best-selling authors and luminaries.

As a pioneer in the interactive Internet entertainment industry, Scott's career began as a software developer. By the time he was 18 he was providing software for the Commodore 64. He then went on to work for Capcom in Japan as one of the first American Nintendo programmers. Blum also worked for Sega and Taito and created over 15 video games for the Nintendo and Sega game machines, some of which have sold millions of copies.

Scott was hired to work at Starwave by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft. While there, he produced Peter Gabriel's critically acclaimed "Eve" CD-ROM, which was the recipient of the prestigious Milia d'Or award for excellence in CD-ROM production. Scott then founded and was president of iMusic in 1995, which was the original pioneer of netcasting and one of the first sites to bridge the legitimate music industry with the Internet. Scott worked with such bands as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt, and Ben Harper. It was the largest music community on the Internet, paving the way for other online communities like MySpace.

In 1999, he sold iMusic to music industry insider ARTISTdirect, which in turn sold iMusic to Apple. Scott spent five years at ARTISTdirect, acting as VP of Research and Development and leading product development for their advanced technology and digital music initiatives.

In 2004 Scott and his wife Madisyn Taylor founded DailyOM (www.dailyom.com) after wanting to merge their personal interests in spirituality with their professional lives. DailyOM has since become one of the premiere on-line destinations for non-denominational inspirational content, products and courses from some of today's best-selling authors and luminaries.

I am married with two sons Alan and Colin. My wife Cathy supports me but prefers to keep out of the way. I started out life with very much orthodox views regularly attending a Protestant Church. I was never totally at home with their teachings, and as I got older completely turned my back on them. Having made a clean start I went my own way about finding the truth. I searched for it by going back to ancient times and became fascinated by Ancient Egypt. It was in the early 70's that I found Edgar Cayce's readings about Egypt and Atlantis, and this set me off trying to find out more about those periods. This lead me to a society called The Atlanteans and I immediately felt at home with their teachings from Helio Arcanophus, which means "High Priest of the Sun" as he was called in Atlantean times. I soon started my own Branch, and also formed a section in support of The Universal Network under Tuella, who channelled Ashtar. I also formed Galacticom Europa to distribute tapes and messages through Carole Hall, also from Ashtar. At the same time I started my own magazine called The Messenger.

I have had a few UFO sightings, and the most convincing one was in the early 80's. I was driving home alone after attending a private meeting to develop mind to mind contact with ET's. As I was driving down a hill I suddenly noticed a large circular silver/blue craft which had come from behind me and appeared in my windscreen. It was going very slow and it appeared to pulsate, leaving a partial image behind it. It was in sight for only about 10 seconds and disappeared over some rooftops.

I really came into my own after I retired in December 1999. I upgraded my computer and joined the Internet. In December 2003 I found that the treeofthegoldenlight invited E.T. articles to be placed on their web. I was accepted and now have a series of them in place. One day, Nancy Tate of the daily Wake Up Calls told me St. Germain wanted a word with me, and I was asked to sit at my computer each morning to take messages. This was in March 2004 and ever since I have received them every day from Monday to Saturday. Now I am taking another step in response to Donald Newsom's kind offer to allow me a regular program on his BBS Radio.
