About The Author
I nearly died of spinal meningitis when I
was five. The pain was so bad I never,
ever wanted to go through anything like
that again. It wasn't death that I feared
so much as it was the pain and suffering
and the feeling of helplessness that goes
along with being that ill.
That's when I realized that there must be more to life than just a body and mind existing on earth.
After high school I attended college and majored in biology and minored in chemistry. I worked for the government as a biologist before going to Viet Nam and serving as a lieutenant in the Navy for three years. After the Navy I got my Ph.D. and taught biology until I retired.
While I was teaching, I took some yoga classes from a wonderful teacher and discovered that it is possible to go beyond the body and mind and into another realm of consciousness. That is when I began my search for the ultimate state of consciousness - pure awareness or enlightenment as it is sometimes called. When I retired in 1997 I continued my search in greater earnest. This book, You Can Develop Pure Awareness, is the result of that research.
