MY NAME is Dan Brand and I live in the city of Nambour on Australia’s beautiful Queensland Sunshine Coast. I am an ex earth-moving machinery operator, mining and construction supervisor… now retired gentleman and home taught philosopher.

I have had an interest in all things metaphysical from early childhood thanks to my father, who although may have been lacking in some aspects of fatherhood taught me about the planets and the stars in the night sky and instilled in me the curiosity to learn and to ask questions like, ‘Who are we?’, ‘What are we doing here?’ and ‘What’s it all about?’

My learning curve really got into top gear way back in 1980 when I went to Perth in Western Australia to visit family. They were attending courses in spirituality and cosmic awareness. From that I acquired a lot of information, including many books on the matter,  which I still possess, written by authors such as Vernon Howard, Alan Watts, Ken Keyes, Joel Kramer and the like.Digital Camera

I was hooked and have had an avid interest in studying such material ever since. My reference library is made up of  a raft of books written by such authors as Eckhart Tolle, Richard Bach, Louis Hay, Wayne Dyer, Catherine Ponder, plus A Course In Miracles, Conversations with God and Abraham. My library also consists of audio and video CDs by prominent people containing all considerations about what the truth might be.

I began writing a blog in January 2010, at the start writing about many topics, (Nature’s Pecking Order is an example) but I soon gravitated to writing about my thoughts on philosophy. It seemed that there was someone else who had taken control of my mind and hands while I virtually sat back and watched each story unfold. When each post was finished, I was as amazed as anyone else as to what was written.

As time has gone by I have learned that a post of 400 words or less if possible is more attractive to a reader than one containing in excess of 1,000 words – which at the beginning, most of the older posts were. (Those older posts became the basis for my book).

We all have an innate curiosity to learn the truth about ourselves and if I can assist others with my writing and give them the incentive to pursue their own path to self awareness and enlightenment, then I am ecstatically happy, for I will have done my part as an evolving human being.

I hope you enjoy reading what I write.

Cheers Dan

  1. Hi Dan,

    It seems that SoundEagle is the first living being to click the “Like” button here.

    Thank you for introducing yourself with such free spirit and candour!

    Happy April to you and to your new blog! Since SoundEagle’s writing here is the very first comments on this “About” page since your blog’s inception, SoundEagle would like to wish you a new dawn and an even better year of learning and discovery in 2013 for you!

    SoundEagle hopes that you continue to do very well and find fulfillment in whatever you enjoy doing and savouring, especially through “writing stories for the entertainment of myself and whoever else that may be interested, mainly on philosophy, gathered from the many books I have read and formed from my own thoughts on what life maybe like in truth”. You have indeed allowed yourself almost a total free reign in forging a new vista or wide horizon for documenting your explorations of life throughout your blog. Cheers!

  2. Once again SoundEagle, much appreciated. It is heartening to know that what I write resonates with my readers, after all, my mission is not to tell others what is right or wrong about life but to entice them to think for themselves.

  3. Nice and interesting blog, Dan! Thanks for following “Known is a drop, Unknown is an Ocean”. 🙂

  4. Nice ethos 🙂 Perhaps some of my blog info might interest you. I used to live in Murwillumbah. Fascinating place.
