How I Discovered the Life-Purpose Life Path Number System
Despite nearly twenty years spent exploring the human psyche, various insight traditions, and metaphysical models of reality, I remain an empiricist at heart. I value the scientific method, which utilizes well-designed (double-blind, controlled) experiments to test whether a theory or hypothesis is in fact true — whether, for example, a medication, herb, or other substance works better than a placebo (sugar pill). The methods of science helped to pull humanity out of the dark ages of superstition. So over the years I’ve been skeptical of magical or wishful thinking and untested notions.
I hadn’t even considered the existence of a deeper calling, or anything like a “life path or life path number,” until 1984, when I met an unusual mentor whom I’ll refer to as MB. He had read my first book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, and had decided to take me under his wing.
Not long after our initial encounter, MB sat me down and gave me a “reading,” which changed the course of my life. In that session, he revealed in-depth information that clarified my past, present, and potential future, including details that rang true and proved amazingly accurate (I later learned he used my life path number as a guide). It was as if his words removed a veil that had previously obscured my vision, and awakened in me the first clear recognition of the life I was born to live.
I was astonished that he could have such insight into my life but had no idea how he gained access to such information. I was at that time well versed in the “cold-read” techniques and tricks used by so-called psychics. MB claimed no psychic abilities, however, stating only that he had been trained to know “where to look”—i.e. to understand my life path number—for such information. He would say no more about it at that time.
