My description:

 I am an author, an anti-establishment psychologist with PhD, an iconoclast with countercultural or outsider sensibility. My last book (2012) was on spirituality and madness.... I grew up in a secular Jewish home. I was an intellectual rebel by the time I was 12.

. I was reading the beats like Allen Ginsberg, Kenneth Patchen, Kerouac,Ferlinghetti at 12 and I became a anti-war (Vietnam) protester in high school, and a “Marxist” by the time I arrived at college at UW-Madison. I became interested in metaphysical and spiritual perspective in my early 20s. A book by Abraham Heschel made me realize I was a theist after all. In my mid-20s I discovered Eastern philosophy and religion. The most powerful spiritual-intellectual influence on my world view for the last few decades has been the writings of Sri Aurobindo.
My philosophic perspective lies combines Western Romanticism and Hindu mysticism  (And add influence of Jung.)


I'm still keeping the faith
Still tending the dream...
Weary and weathered
But still sailing, 
searching for you across endless seas
amidst murmurs of the final storm.
Still haunted by the vision of you
Waiting for me on the cool sunlit shore at dawn
Looking for me,staring at the horizon, clear-eyed
Beckoning me home,
Eternal bride, goddess of the dawn.


I am left-wing--but not a liberal Democrat--I do not place any faith in the Democratic Party, or any other corrupted institution, although I supported Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, and those trying to push the Party left.

 I am aware of the precariousness of the human situation. As Henry Miller said in 1957, "One can live joyously--one must!--in the midst of a world peopled with sorrowing suffering creatures[and, one might add, menaced by the
threat of environmental or nuclear apocalypse]. What other world is there is which to enjoy life? But I know this, that I will no longer perform for the sake of performing, nor act for the sake of being active...Nor will I acknowledge as necessary or inevitable what now goes on in the name of law and order, peace and prosperity, freedom and security. Sell it to the Hottentots! "

Those of us who are living now will be the ones who determine the future."We have met the Messiah and He is us," author Buddhist- Jungian Paul Levy wrote.

In the Vedas the Rishis exclaim "We have crossed through to the other shore of this darkness! The dawn is breaking forth..."
