When consciousness expresses as humanity, be aware; that consciousness is you. One finds the awareness of self there.
This is the oneness of created and creator.It's very old wisdom; wisdom that predates the traditions of most organized religions while speaking of the same unity of life.
Often our “living life experience” is described as a web, or a weaving, of which we are all a dynamic, creative part, (and very responsible for).
Even modern physics has come full circle to meet ancient mysticism with its “new physics” concept of an issue of events connecting all life. Spirituality has become domain to many individuals in full awareness of its role, and its function in the weaving of life.
One of the strongest views, basic to the search for spirituality today, is the deep recognition of the unity of all aspects of all life. While this thought may have been from the past, it is being followed today.
We are in truth living in a new world of awareness, consciousness, and connectedness; that is very, very old.
In this time of change for ourselves , all life, and the planet, the energies of life and the earth are reawakening in the consciousness of humankind. More than ever before, we are called to deepen our union with nature. We have spent a great deal of time following the teachings of others only to find ourselves misdirected on our journey to truth.
It’s time to follow the teacher within. This teacher can truly direct us on our personal paths. When we listen to the intelligence of our inner guide, we stand in the center of our own power. Like the shaman, mentor, or coach, we can then travel on our true paths, complete our earth walk, and follow our highest self.
This website is intended to communicate wisdom and information from all who participate equally in the most practical, direct way possible.
It is our hope that all wisdom or knowledge or energy can be shared for the benefit of all, and it is wished that many may share their “living life experiences” here.
I believe Wisdom is not knowledge, there’s a difference; wisdom requires experience. Wisdom is a part of any spiritual system or tradition; accumulated faith based knowledge is what most religions follow.
We human animals are unique; I question whether or not any religious path or leader has the wisdom to lead anyone on their earth walk; the journey is very personal.
I’m not against, nor do I want to be taken as against any one of the many religious paths. I personally don’t feel I have a religious path; rather, I’m on a spiritual quest.
Spirituality to me may be best defined as the attainment of the highest aspect of human character in relationship to the divine. In the past this realization was most often under the control of fixed doctrines and hierarchical religious structures. Today, however, this quest has become a process of making a personal connection to the highest most divine aspects of creation.
I truly believe, “nature is my religion, and the world is my cathedral”. This, of course does not have to be anyone else’s belief.
Simply sharing our beliefs can make volumes of accumulated knowledge, and this can be accomplished by sharing our “living life experiences”. Lets grow together as one family of life and love.
This website is about learning, discussing, developing trust in you;and others, helping build self-confidence.
It’s about learning to connect, trusting your intuition and what it's telling you.
It's about learning to see and think for your self. Most of us live two lives; we live in our thoughts and our present moments. I feel that freedom is simply living in the NOW or the present moment,, not in ones thoughts.
For years I’ve believed “Nature is my religion, and the world is my cathedral”. That doesn’t discount a creator, or God, or consciousness ( which we actually are).
Something with intelligence began this thing called “the universe”, and “life”.
“I am simply amazed at how much I know I don’t know about God, creation, life, consciousness, the universe, and this world; and people: in fact I’m not as smart as I often think I am; how about you?
I’m eager to learn, to discuss, share, and speak,
“At nuwants.com wanting to learn” about nature, creation, and God is what it’s all about.
My pursuit for meaning started early in life, I was just a young boy, growing and struggling with my childhood insecurities. I would often find myself thinking, “So, who am I; what is this all about; what is God, or creation all about”? Even today I find myself asking the same question’s; I think we all do.
Dan, or Doc Dan; I’m a ordained minister, mentor, and life coach. I grew up in a small town on a family farm. I was blessed with a very large family; I’m the oldest of 8 boys. On the farm were cousins also. There were about 14 wonderful people to grow with. I learned so much about how people function and life on the farm. My family behaved with a special kind of love, it was our love, I feel it is the best kind of love. I’ve had many life events in my "living life experience" you could say; "“been there, done that". Just like you, I’ve had my share of up’s and down’s, and many dreams that didn’t make it and fell by the way side. I’ve had plenty of successes too. So, don’t get me wrong, I’ve had an incredible life experience.
As a student of life, and the universe, I like to say that I will always be learning about this “living life experience”. I’ve always said, “I am amazed at how much I know I don’t know”; especially about life and the universe.
Growing up was full of happenings on the farm. The good ones were cherished for their good; the bad ones were actually some of the best learning experiences for me.
My life changed when I experienced an auto accident in 1968. My back was broken and I was told I might never walk again. I also died in the accident and had the profoundest of experiences.
I had been married to my first wife for two weeks; our dreams were torn apart in the tragedy. Everything was pretty disturbing; I was 19 years old at the time and I truly didn't know how to handle the trauma. I remember asking my mother why God would allow such terrible things to happen? She said it wasn’t God, but the devil. I was confused and became hateful of God.
What followed for me was an education in deep depression. I didn’t know what to believe or feel; maybe you can relate. For the next 9 years I lost myself in drugs, alcohol, and one wild lifestyle of self destruction. I neglected my wants, stopped taking care of myself and the dreams I had.
I began to come out of my self inflicted nightmare when I moved to Ohio and lived with the best lifestyle/wellness coach in the world; he became a mentor for me. He had a second grade education, couldn’t read or write and thought of himself as stupid, but he was a Godsend. Lifestyle/wellness coaching and mentoring wasn’t the fields they are now, but, as a coach, he was the best, and wisest, the most influential person for me. He simply never gave up on me as I did. God certainly does work in mysterious ways; for me Floyd was just one of many.
My first lesson from him was “Like it or not, you are the only one responsible for you”. The second was “How you think is how your life will be”. I began to change directions again, and the path was uplifting, positive, and productive.
After hard work I began to feel a rising joy, life was beginning to flow. It was all happening as I freed my mind of self imposed limitations and hurts. I began to see that the whole attitude to “Personal Development” is an approach of living inside out, while looking inside and persevering in finding “The True You”.
It was like waking up from a horrible nightmare and realizing my own essence and what I could accomplish in life. I began planning for the best and preparing for the worst both at the same time. I was managing and envisioning the true me and what I could do in life.
True fulfillment in life is only experienced by finding our true essence and passion for life. Realizing the importance of living with a purpose and living authentically; life was rebooting in me and my life. I was placing demands on myself, the fist being to walk as a healthy person.
I wasn’t in therapy or counseling, there were no clinicians, doctors, or others, just myself and my coach and mentor. We were increasing my desire to grow and a willingness to believe. It was like awakening from the limited beliefs to unlimited visions of better in all aspects of life.
I began creating goals on both personal and inter-personal levels. There seemed no end to the energy. Working with other people, I was finding true leadership abilities; inspiration was flowing from every part of me.
I had always believed that beyond the yearning for success and affluence there is something about us all that is spiritual in definition; I was on the search again.
I wanted to be happier, I wanted more stability, I just wanted more. Does this sound familiar to you? I am still learning about life, (It’s actually a never ending class), and what a journey I have had so far, how about you?
I’ve always had a fascination of the creative power we people have. That power, or force, has offered me many experiences. I feel life is the most exciting, challenging event anyone will ever have, and it's such a RUSH, "being".
As for my experience, I am a musician and songwriter, a poet and writer. I am an artist and photographer, (I still freelance). I have operated heavy equipment, worked sales, Been Dean of Alternative Medicine, (at the now defunct International Academy), and been a substance abuse therapist. Even worked at GM, drove truck, and have owned my own practice since 1983. I'm also an old biker, like the wind in my face. Done more but don’t have the space here to mention everything.
I studied hard, (through distant learning schools), and have degrees, A Doctorate in Naturopathy, Phd in Psychology, and Masters in Nutrition. I’m an ordained minister and more a Unitarian Deist, I was raised to be a Shaman, and enjoy public speaking; and will be pod-casting very soon.
I was thinking one day, “Where do I grow now?” The answer was simple, “Put it all together and follow my passion. I realized my best education was my life experience, I could help a lot of people by contributing to the value of others, we could work together to do things better. And that is what I did, but didn’t realize that I was actually coaching and mentoring others. I was introducing myself to "Lifestyle/Wellness" coaching and mentoring a long time ago.
Learning not to dwell on the wounds from life, I developed understanding that has helped me, and others, to thrive and grow. Moving out of my overly negative habits and ways of thinking; life has changed; becoming exciting as I took life’s challenge. Connecting as I never had before; my greatest passion became helping others, motivating them, and helping them to understand the personal power we create by taking life's challenge.
Everything continued to come together, and I have developed a practical, rational way to help others tap into their personal creativity and build a prosperous life and profession, a win, win that is best.
My passion and true calling in life is coaching and mentoring.
Coaching and mentoring is a good fit for me also as I assist individuals, professionals, and businesses. I offer lifestyle/wellness coaching and mentoring to creative, capable, courageous, often sensitive people who are ready to create lives of vibrant color full of their imagination, helping them expand their horizons of possibility with a style that is both playful and serious (that's the Shaman I am).
I help other's find the essence of their passion in life as my coach and mentor did with me. My goal is the best, most prosperous version of yourself you can be.
I know from those I have coached and mentored and myself, that you can reconnect, start over, and find true fulfillment in your life. The first step in your journey of self discovery is to reach out.
There is one God with many names, and the oneness or unity of God is the family of life.
That all life, not just human life is sacred.
That the oneness of God, or the creator, is displayed in all life.
The life and teachings of Jesus and other great teachers are a model for living ones own life.
Humans have the ability to use both “free will and choice in a responsible, constructive, ethical manner.
Human nature in its present state is neither inherently corrupt or good; as is all of life that is conscious of itself, this is what the creator intended.
Rational thought, reason, science, and philosophy, can co-exist with a belief in God, or creation.
The authors of all religious books, although inspired by the creator were human, therefore subject to human error, desires, and goals.
Traditional religious teachings malign creation, and the creator of our true mission and nature.
There should be a distinct separation of church and state.
I believe that one’s personal convictions guide ones personal political activities; that there is no viable just and fair unity in church and state.
I believe that one’s personal convictions guide ones personal political activities; that there is no viable fair unity in church and state.
All creation is of divine thought and is infinite in its being.
Thought is infinite in his creation.
Thought is both material and spiritual, both solid and transparent.
Human animals have been given gifts from the creator, the first is the gift of creative thought, the second is free will, and the third is choice.

All of creation is an act of divine love.
All creation by the creator is sacred, respect all life.
Reason, rational thought, science, and tell us if he are given to individuals to serve creation and build a better family of life, and mankind.
There is value in all teachings of religion, reason, science, and philosophy.
There is no monopoly on spiritual truth, all religions are pass to spiritual understanding, and they are accepted equally.
Questioning all teachings is learning of all teachings; this brings us closer to the nature of creation, and the creator.,
All teachings of predestination, vicarious sacrifice, eternal damnation, and atonement I rejected.
In any material society in which man creates government that authority shall be kept separate from all spirituals and religious affairs.
Man creates government that is contrary to God’s love and law.
The purpose of a “living life experience “ is to learn. Because of this there is no right or wrong, simply experience and choice.
