Chapter 5: Childhood, First and Second Grades

By the time I turned 5 years old, I would no longer have my mother in my life. One might wonder what it must have been like for a baby to be born into a home to a young mother just out of High School who already had two other boys, had another boy exactly a year, a month, and a day later, and finally a sister a year after that.  I was too young to remember much about my early days with my mother.  But I wasn’t too young to remember how it was to have a step-mother without…

Chapter Four (continued): Birth and Family

… Yeah … I know … this all sounds a bit weird.  Right?  Well, let’s logically consider it. You will find that there are many people who believe that after we die we will remain conscious somewhere other than here upon Earth.  Some call it heaven. You’ll also find some who are skeptical of any type of life after death.  These believe that when we die, that’s it … we’re done and we completely cease to exist. To understand where the believers and the skeptics are coming from, simply ask each a question: What is the purpose of your life?…

Chapter Four: Birth

In the last chapter I gave you a bit of advice: Live life the best you can, according to your own mind. If you learn anything from your grandpa, learn to live life without worry or fear.  Especially don’t fear death.  There’s no such thing … really. Learn not to value your Self by what others expect of you, but by what YOU expect of you.  But first, learn who you really are and why you really exist. I then wrote, that to help you learn these things, “the following chapters will give you the details of my entire life, from my birth on December 2,…

Chapter Three: “THEIR” WORK

You will find that your grandfather has a lot of enemies and critics because of the work that I do.  It might be possible that your parents are some of them. As I present the facts of my life, you will come to find out that my father (your great-grandfather) was one of them. Although I have never done any intentional wrong to anyone, nor do I have the disposition or personality that would, many things have been written about me that seem pretty bad.  And many bad things have happened to me because of these enemies and critics. On…

Chapter Two: Grandpa’s Magnum Opus

From the moment of my enlightenment (new understanding) about human reality—who we are and why we exist—the value I placed on my mortal existence upon Earth changed 180 degrees. I no longer valued money, success, honor, glory, education, and the other things that you will come to think are worthy of life here upon Earth, the same as I did the moment before my transfiguration (change).  How could I? I knew that we are all equal people sharing an experience of life together on Earth, and that each person, including me, was the most important person in the universe. I no…

Beginning my autobiography—The Man From Joe’s Bar and Grill. Writing for my grandchildren.

INTRODUCTION The words and contextual presentation of my autobiography will change over time as editors review my writing and adjust it properly.  But I want to make sure that the information I give about my life in my own words is clear, correct, and most importantly, the Real Truth.  To accomplish this, I intend on directing my thoughts towards my grandchildren.  I want to write about my life in a way that they can understand. I have nine children who share my DNA, but none who has shared his or her life with me for the length of time that…
