B is for the boy

B is for the boy in college who thought a date was inviting me up to his attic room and playing a record while he read aloud from the dictionary. He was in love with words.

“Ageless Wisdom” From the Glossary at A Tree of Light: http://atreeoflight.org/Glossary

“Ancient teachings, updated for current times. The essentials contained in this body of higher truth have guided spiritual seekers throughout human history.
