In the temples of Egypt and other ancient cultures devout Priest and Priestess used the sacred science of Astrology to analyze the energy fields of young people to determine innate talents and vocational tendencies. At the completion of a lengthy astrological evaluation the vocation or “life calling” that would provide an adequate channel for the cultivation and expression of an individual’s energies was identified and a complimentary educational curriculum was designed.

The Three Wise Men, referred to in earlier biblical writings as “ Three Astrologers”, employed their knowledge of astrological phenomena in a similar fashion when they found and identified the Christ child.

Education in it’s technical sense is a system of techniques and methods designed to assist conscientious students in their attempts to discover, cultivate and “lead out” innate talents and abilities.

In the educational institutions of antiquity the initial phase of the educational process was focused upon identifying the student’s innate potentials. The test educators had to pass prior to being certified as teachers was to demonstrate an ability to help students discover and integrate their creative resources into a mode of expression that contributed to personal evolution and social development. An in-depth understanding of human personality, acquired through a knowledge of Astrology and related meta-physical sciences, provided the information teachers needed to achieve their objectives. A deep respect for the intimate relationship that exists between education and religion inspired our ancestors to incorporate academic and religious teachings.

Through individualized educational techniques and religious instructions, a child’s spiritual essence was “led out” and “bound back” to the source of life which is in fact the technical definition of education and religion, and the essential purpose of the activities these words describe. Education as viewed and practiced in modern times is in many ways a system that defeats the purposes it is supposed to be striving to achieve.

Instead of “leading out” innate potentials and abilities, the euro-centric approach to education frustrates the expression of individualized creative ability by saturating the brain with academic baggage before defining the temperament and needs of the individual.

As sophisticated as today’s aptitude tests are there is still a lot to be desired. How do you identify a talent whose presence is so subtle it defies your analysis? Without a viable means of interpreting the complex patterns in the human energy field it’s a trial and error situation.

The metaphysical systems: astrology, numerology, tarot, etc. that were designed to assist us in identifying and liberating an individuals unique mental and spiritual resources are usually viewed as superstitious parlor games.

The fearful and negative attitudes that most people have towards astrology and related metaphysical teachings are in most instances inherited from some person who obviously did not understand these sacred sciences themselves.

Placing taboos on what we do not understand has been an obstacle to human progress since the dawn of creation. Perhaps it is time for us to turn within for more courage and venture out to see for ourselves.

As more people begin to use Astrology and other metaphysical systems for academic and vocational counseling the high incidence of misplaced, unfulfilled students and employees will make a drastic change for the better. Definitions of education and success will take on new meanings. We will come to realize that a man whose innate abilities equip him to be a cook, who has no formal education, but has discovered and led out his creative resources is more educated than a man with a masters degree in a field that doesn’t fulfill him or reflect his essential qualities and attributes. Success will be viewed by enlightened individuals as the successive fulfillment of one’s inner potential with none of the material symbols of money and status associated with it.

An innate attraction to Esoteric knowledge has drawn teachings and teachers to me, throughout my life, from different countries and cultures.

The most profound of these encounters came in 1966 when I had a startling vision of my Guru Kirpal Singh Ji whom I visited in April of 1968 to be initiated into "The Path of the Masters"at Sawan Ashram in New Delphi, India. Additional studies in the Esoteric Sciences were received from Bishop James P. Moody, Founder of the Mission of Divine Research, Dr.Mishra Ramuriti of the Yoga Society of New York, Babalawo Edward James, of the Yoruba Community of New York, Dr. Paul Foster Case founder of Builders of the Adytum and Elder Vasant, the International Representative of the Agni-hotra Society.

The ecumenical perspective acquired through my experiences with the many sages I have studied with has resulted in the realization that "Truth is One though Paths are Many".

The desire for World Peace that many profess to be seeking will only become a reality when we learn to accept and reverently respect the universality of philosophical and religious ideologies.

Forty five years of research, study and practical experience under the tutelage of extraordinary teachers has resulted in my achieving global recognition as a competent, respected Metaphysical teacher and Life Purpose consultant.

Music is one of the major channels through which I teach the Esoteric Sciences. It is in fact the final means of Spiritual liberation, the Alpha and Omega of creation.

The WORD, spoken or written appeals to the Mind, when harmoniously combined with Music it revives the heart,nourishes the soul and liberates the spirit.

The intuitive realization of the deeper significance of music may have inspired my career as a professional singer.

Whatever the case may be, the Metaphysical Ministry has taken the expression of my vocal talents to a level that emphasizes the therapeutic and spiritual dynamics of the human voice.

Prior to my accepting a work-related request to move to California I produced and hosted an inspirational metaphysical Music program, "The Gospel Experience" on WATB 1420 A.M. in Atlanta, Ga.

Before relocating to Atlanta I produced and hosted three radio programs: The Gospel Experience- Songs in the Key of Life and a metaphysical talk show -Signs and Seasons ,which aired for eight years on W.P.F.W 89.3F.M in Washington, D.C:

The"Signs and Seasons" radio broadcast actually began as a weekly newspaper column designed to teach the Science of Astrology and give Mini-Astrological profiles to readers of the syndicated papers that featured my column: The Capital Spotlight, Afro-American weekly and The Jackson Advocate.

I also had the opportunity to produce and host the radio programs mentioned above in the Virgin Island of St Thomas for five years. They were featured for a brief period on the "Wave" Radio station in the exotic city of Belize during my six month retreat at the turn of the century.

In addition to my private metaphysical counseling practice, I have been, for the last six years the primary guest Astrologer-Numerologist featured on Front Page and Inner Visions,two popular radio talk shows broadcast on KJLH A.M. and KPFK F.M. in Los Angeles California.The focus of these programs is to enhance consciousness on issues related to the growth and development of the local, national and international community.
