About the author:
The "We" behind the Path of The Pearl are E Aquarian and Bruce Geisler. We both lived in different spiritual communities in the 1970s and both of us have continued our Spiritual quests for most of our lives.
BRUCE GEISLER is the Vice President of Soul Growth, Inc and one of the creators of this site. His day job is as a Senior Lecturer in Communication at the Univ. of Massachusetts - Amherst.
He is also an award winning filmmaker and writer, including "Free Spirits - the Birth, Life and Loss of a Utopian Dream," a feature length documentary about the Renaissance Community, one of the very largest, longest-lived spiritual communes of the 1960s, 70s, & 80s, produced by Acorn Productions (www.acornproductions.net), and "Grassroots," a behind the scenes look at a citizen-led campaign that resulted in groundbreaking climate change legislation in Connecticut. He serves as Secretary of the Board of Directors of the Community Resource Foundation charity.
His own spiritual journey has been guided by influences from Buddhism, Hinduism, Gnostic Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.
E AQUARIAN got his name in The Source Family in 1974 - named by his Spiritual Father, Father Yod. He conceived Soul Growth and founded Soul Growth.org in 2006 and continues as the President and visionary.
He was born in 1945, graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1968 and then began his journey to find something "Better and higher".
He said: I found my Spiritual Father - Father Yod (later, Ya Ho Wha) in early 1974. He set me on "The Path" to Soul Growth. I have been married to Harvest Moon (also a Member of the Source Family) since 1977, we are still in love and have raised 3 awesome young men and welcomed our first granddaughter in early 2009. During our Holy Union, we have created and founded many businesses, all based upon Father's wisdom. Harvest and I have owned and managed Emerald Isle Properties - Real Estate with Heart - on Kauai and the Big Island, in Hawaii, since 1990 . . . and my GOAL is "Enlightenment".

The Path of the Pearl
Everything that happens to you -- Every circumstance and event - is for Your Own Soul's Growth !
E Aquarian, Bruce Geisler
The Path of The Pearl does not replace your current "Path" . . . Think of it as a powerful tool to aid you on your personal Journey.
It doesn't matter what Spiritual Path we choose, provided it works for us, and that we have the will, strength and desire to stay on it.
"There are only two mistakes one can
Make along the road to truth:
Not starting . . . and not going all the way."
~ Chinese Proverb
"THE PEARL" PROVIDES IDEAS, WISDOM, AND TECHNIQUES.
All are designed to help us along our way on our current path . . . or give some of us a little "Push" to start down a Spiritual Path for the first time.
When we read The Pearl, it is important not to just take it for granted . . . but rather to meditate more deeply upon the wisdom that rings the bell of truth in our minds, make note of it . . . and use it .
THERE ARE FOUR PARTS TO THE PEARL
But they are NOT STEPS ~ or rungs on a ladder ~ by which we climb to higher ones and leave the others behind.
For instance, it is almost impossible to ever finish "Purifying our Bodies" . . . so we must be already working on Elevating our Minds . . . or Refining our Emotions.
The best way to approach it might be to set the goal of working on several steps at the same time. If we do that, any progress we make in one stage will simultaneously help us grow in all the others.
There's a lot here. We don't have to plow through reading all the parts of the Path of the Pearl in one sitting.
It's a journey . . . not a place. ; - )
