I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. My upbringing was fairly normal, classical European education and Protestants upbringing but my maternal grandmother was a Catholic closet mystic. Much of her wisdom I could not understand when I was with her but she lived to be 99-year old and I understand her gentle guidance on me now at a ripe age. All in all the Christian doctrine never made much sense to me despite my thirst for knowledge and God. As it turned out I never got my confirmation only christening. So am I a Christian or a Pagan?
I liked going to church in Europe where places of worship are majestic and old, and while I was practicing it was largely forbidden or frowned upon by the dictators of Soviet era Budapest. I guess it was ok as an act of political rebellion as long as I did not listen to the priest much.
I came to the USA at age 21 with nothing but the clothes on my back. My sponsor was also a protestant minister who was a big-time capitalist all the same. I guessed it was ok in the USA but American style religion just never suited me. I seldom attended church; I have tried Unitarian Universalism as it was the closest organized religion I could stomach. I still love those Unitarians.
My work history is as spotted. I've worked as a computer programmer and later an IT contractor, mainly in financial enginering. I have tried stock brokering, and stocks and commodities trading as well.
Personal Finance is a hobby even today that I just cannot seem to shake. Briefly I was a member of the Chicago Board of Trade and I have authored several titles on personal money management, retirement planning and recently foreign exchange trading.
The last four years I have been interested in Yoga and metaphysics after I have seen my teacher's TV program on Access Sacramento on Agni Yoga.
The best way to describe me is as a philosopher with a mystic bent. I have started a reprint publishing venue to offer Right Hand Path, occult books that actually reveal truths and can be of benefit the reader spiritually.
