Welcome to Pathways to Being


I have sometimes pondered what was the catalyst that set me upon my quest for knowledge. I now know.

In his book 'The 9 Steps to Keep Your Doctor Away' at the end of Chapter 1, 'Just Another Self-Help Book! Dr Rashid Buttar quotes Confucius:

'Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.'

In reality it was out of my very own ignorance that I started exploring and researching a wide range of subjects some of which I have posted on my web site.

Furthermore, at the beginning of Chapter 1 he quotes an unknown author

'The possession of facts is knowledge, the use of them is wisdom'

Pathways to Being

Some people believe that


is power, however I believe that

shared knowledge

is power and so I willingly share whatever knowledge I have acquired. I understand that people have differing degrees of knowledge and skill sets depending on their respective life’s journeys, experiences, socio-economic status, education, occupations, interests, research capabilities and hobbies.

The objective of




therefore is to create a Community


by presenting a scope of knowledge; for some people it may be new knowledge whilst for others it may simply reinforce their existing knowledge.
