The Gnostic Web Award is given few. Gnosis means first hand perception of truth - the sincere quest for the Christ (or Truth) within, AKA Cosmic Consciousness. (In the words of the master, "Seek first, the Kingdom and all else will be added unto you . . . The Kingdom is Within You.") We are honored and humbled, having received this award. Blessed be the Seekers, for they shall find Holy Peace in the Sublime.

I reentered this world by way of Munich, Germany (und mein mater). This was on the winter solstice, during the full moon, at dawn . . . (which may mean absolutely nothing to you).
By age 18, I opted to become an American citizen.
My background (besides music and fine art) is primarily journalism, including broadcasting and photography.
The concept of Verborgen came to me as a dream.
