MANIFESTING MICHELANGELO - the story of a modern-day miracle....

The true story of an ordinary man who accidentally discovered the capacity to do miracles.

Author Revealed

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. The quality that best served me as a young man was probably a bit of courage in the face of adversity. The best quality I’ve developed as I’ve matured is a deepening empathy culminating with a feeling of unity with all fellow beings.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. To fully remember the unlimited mind that children are born with before the material world shackles our hearts and souls with limiting thoughts. The great philosopher Charles Baudelaire said that “Genius is no more than childhood recaptured at will.”

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Michelangelo, the artist who knew that the connection to the divine can be so powerful that it can transform nature. Also, Galileo, who made a discovery that was initially received as heresy and shortly became what everyone knew to be the truth. And probably most profoundly, the person who took this sacred practice into action, Martin Luther King, Jr. who said, “Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Q. What do you regret most?

A. What I regret most is that education is bereft of perhaps the most important lesson that can be taught: that we as humans have a profound sacred potential to manifest change. To paraphrase the Dali Lama, education without moral ideals is worthless. And Plato was of the same opinion when he said, “Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.”
