He will be like a tree planted by water . . . its leaves will be luxuriant . . . (Jeremiah 17:8)
The YES FACTOR equates to surrender and acceptance. Yes, I understand there is a force more powerful than man. A force of love, a force for peace, a force of truth. We may call this force Allah, Yahweh or God, even Enlightened Mind. Whatever, it’s breath gives us life.
As we search for this truth, in actuality we have never left it’s side for we are that truth. AND THAT EXPERIENCE SHALL SET US FREE.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Lawrence Morton Birney lived there for ten years before moving with his family to Libya. In Tripoli, surrounded by antiquities from the Roman era through World War II, he gained first-hand knowledge of Arab culture and its historical position on the world stage. His exploration of the underground tunnels used by Erwin Rommel’s Panzerarmee Afrika is a foundational element within Pure Vision: The Magdalene Revelation, a fictional blueprint for peace in the Middle East. Lawrence and Angelina have also written a children’s book Tara Thunderbolt & the Sky Dancer Cat.
Lawrence studied Modern European History and Economics at the Institute for European Affairs in Lugano, Switzerland before returning to the U.S. and pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering from Bridgeport Engineering Institute in Connecticut. He is a student of both Christian and Eastern mysticism.
