When Eric Prescott and crew were here taping my profile it became evident that Eric was intrigued by my proclamation that I was "still evolving."

"...the purpose of life is the evolution, through self-effort, of man's limited mortal consciousness into God Consciousness..."

by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson.

Here's a favorite excerpt:

"It is a bit puzzling why we feel that something not like us deserves less respect. That it's death is less troubling."

A reviewer of the book on the Amazon site says: "Here, here. Some people think fish are vegetables. You know those people who say, "I'm a vegetarian but I eat fish." Those people really need to read this book. "
