Throughout his successful career as an engineer for Boeing, NASA and the US Army, our guest today spent forty years of his own time researching the philosophies of ancient wisdom, and many other schools of thought to answer the fundamental questions we should all ask ourselves sometimes in our lives.
Why are we here?
What is our purpose?
How might we live it better?
As he says, “I’ve been a seeker of truth for as long as I can remember. I recall as a teenager sitting in church looking at all the pomp and ceremony and thinking “I don’t know what truth is, but this isn’t it!”
So began a quest to find the answers to these questions and of course to understand himself as well as he can too.
Taking advantage of his extensive training, he voraciously studied all the major religions and their origins.
He read the ancient texts like the Books of the Dead, and The Kyballion.
He studied the eastern and western philosophers from Pythagoras to Plato from Lao to Emerson.
As a trained engineer he studied all the sciences including quantum mechanics, relativity, cosmology, anthropology, and archeology.
He even studied reincarnation, mystics, UFO’s. “I wanted to look at reality from every perspective I could think of,” he offers.
His book, “The Endless Journey”, is the culmination of his personal quest.
It explains our nature and provides uplifting guidance on how to make the most out of our lives.
Especially when we say ‘yes’ to the experience as spiritual beings.
This last statement is a huge part of life, and one that we can skip over quite quickly time and time again…..saying “yes” to the opportunities that surround us everyday.
So of course the big question too all this research is has he answered the questions about himself, or after 40 years is he still as confused as the rest of us?
And as a scientist how did he manage to research and not dismiss some of the more out there concepts that appear in his book?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr David Gaggin.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:
Why he recalls as a youngster and throughout all his life needing to challenge the world that he lived in and needing to turn over stones wherever he went.
How he took ten years to buy totally into the theory of reincarnation, as he could see it as the perfect solution to the questions he was searching for.
How he knew that he had to assess all different realities as it was the only way that he could make the ultimate jigsaw puzzle of life fit together.
How he feels so much happier to know that he has finished the book and shed the weight of constant questioning from his life.
