I am a grown up “gifted child”. I skipped two grades in elementary school, was a boy soprano in a choir, and a child actor in radio dramas. I graduated with honors from university; participated in the development and application of leading-edge technologies in telecommunications and nuclear-electric generation; became an officer and airplane pilot in the navy, a church organist and religious teacher, a candidate in a federal election, an actor in live theater, and the father of six children. But almost fifty years passed before I found anybody with whom I could talk about the real “gift” which had filled my life and which set me apart from other people: the gift of awareness of some of the seemingly miraculous abilities of humankind. I wonder what my life would have been like if my parents and teachers had been open and receptive to this gift, and had helped me to develop my miraculous abilities, instead of rejecting and denying them as “childhood nonsense”.
I have written a book entitled “Noetic Experiences”, about how some of these miraculous abilities were brought to my awareness as a child and grown-up, and I outline some of their practical applications. In my efforts to find a publisher for my book I have entered the “Next Top Spiritual Author” competition.
