Celebrating 18 Years of TROML and Splendid Spiritual Self!!!

September 3rd, 2018 marks 18 years of TROML Journaling all my life’s thoughts, feelings, & experiences and, most importantly, learning from them through the unique & powerful TROML Process! A ‘Splendid Spiritual Self’ and a lifestyle of peace, joy, & freedom has emerged for me over the years. There are no shortcuts in life, though if you CUT into yourself (in a healthy manner) and learn to accept, love, and be compassionate to your True Self, it is a SHORT road home to peace, joy, & freedom (and a home to enjoy for all eternity). Far from perrfect, YES, you are RIGHT… perfectionism, control, all-or-nothing thinking, and judgmentalism have no home in me anymore. Everyone, certainly everyone I have met around the world, has their own TROML Program & their own unique ‘Splendid Spiritual Self’ has emerged too… we are all ‘human-beings-in-progress! THANK YOU all for sharing yourself with me on a spiritual level. ‘Spiritual Love,’ that’s the foundation for our successes and the answer to all our problems, individually and collectively! TROML Baby Forever!

My moment of truth came in the emergency room of a hospital in my hometown of Binghamton, NY. There to visit my mother who was deathly ill in the hospital (who survived a 17-night hospital stay and lived another year, thank God) I broke out in a body rash. The emergency room doctor, without really examining me (did look at my body but did not relate or connect with ME) quickly wrote out a prescription and handed it to me. I am not a drug-taking person and just knew there had to be a better way to live so I started my TROML Journal that very night…


Yeah, right now, this moment is the youngest I will ever be so why not do something meaningful for ourselves, family, friends, and future generations? TROML Forever Baby!

My very first TROML Journal and now 17 years later I am journaling in No. 156! Personal Growth, Entertainment, & Destiny! TROML Baby!

I am a Christian and accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and Personal Savior. I believe in God and The Holy Spirit too. I respect all other religions, non-religions, and spiritualities. In fact, I believe we are destined to evolve into Spiritual Beings utilizing all the good from all the various religions and spiritualities of the past. Finding your Splendid Spiritual Self and Spiritual Love is the answer to the question ‘How do we respect all other human beings and live in peace, joy, and freedom together in our earthly home?’ Join me! TROML Baby!

What are you doing with the ‘dash’ of your life? Mine is more like an ’em dash’ connecting my worldly life with my eternal life. There is no death date for the ‘Splendid Spiritual Self’ evolved through the TROML Process. Become your Splendid Spiritual Self and there is no transition from life here to eternity there! TROML Baby Forever!







Ramadan Mubarak (“May God give you a Blessed Month”) رمضان مبارك to all Muslims!

Ramadan Mubarak (“May God give you a blessed month”) on June 6thm 2016 or in Arabic this would be رمضان مبارك

The time for Ramadan is set by the lunar cycle and so is different each year.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

1Chapter 2, Revelation 185, of the Quran states: “The month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed the Quran; a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, a number of other days. Allah desires for you ease; He desires not hardship for you; and that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that perhaps you may be thankful.”

4Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.

5 A hadith is one of various reports describing the words, actions, or habits of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. Hadith are second only to the Quran in developing Islamic jurisprudence (divine law) and regarded as important tools for understanding the Quran and commentaries (tafsir) written on it. The time for Ramadan is set by the lunar cycle and so is different each year. A common purely lunar calendar is the Islamic (or Hijri Qamari) calendar. A feature of the Islamic calendar is that a year is always 12 months, so the months are not linked with the seasons and drift each solar year by 11 to 12 days. It comes back to the position it had in relation to the solar year approximately every 33 Islamic years.

6The word Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ramiḍa or ar-ramaḍ, which means scorching heat or dryness. Fasting is fardh (obligatory) for adult Muslims, except those who are suffering from an illness, travelling, are elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic or going through menstrual bleeding. Fasting the month of Ramadan was made obligatory in the second year after the Muslims migrated from Mecca to Medina (623 CE, CE stands for Common Era).

2While fasting from dawn until sunset, Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in sexual relations. Muslims are also instructed to refrain from sinful behavior that may negate the reward of fasting, such as false speech (insulting, backbiting, cursing, lying, etc.) and fighting. Food and drink is served daily, before dawn and after sunset. Spiritual rewards (thawab) for fasting are also believed to be multiplied within the month of Ramadan. Fasting for Muslims during Ramadan typically includes the increased offering of salat (prayers) and recitation of the Quran.

8It is believed that the Quran was first revealed to Muhammad during the month of Ramadan which has been referred to as the “best of times”. The first revelation was sent down on Laylat al-Qadr (The night of Power) which is one of the five odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan. According to hadith, all Holy Scriptures were sent down during Ramadan. The tablets of Ibrahim, the Torah, the Psalms, the Gospel and the Quran were sent down on 1st, 6th, 12th, 13th and 24th Ramadan respectively.

The end of Ramadan is ‘Eid al-Fitr which is the Feast of the Breaking of the Fast. A greeting for this special holy day is Id Mubarak (“May God make it a blessed feast.”)


Make a point, Tell a Story, Connect the Dots in Life with TROML.

I remember receiving a presentation tip when I was back in Corporate America—the tip was to make a point during the presentation and then tell a story. I had lots of experience, some good stories and with a good outline usually gave the type of presentations that enhance one’s career.

In life it never seemed that easy until I utilized the TROML Process to connect the dots, the points in my life. Now I can see how each dot, each life experience connected with the others to bring me along on this journey we call life. Not only that but how TROML can insure a life experience of peace, joy and freedom this very day and going forward into the future.

I know who I am—a perfectly imperfect human being with an going dynamic relationship with something greater than myself—that I choose to call God but others may call Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, or Buddha, or Confucius and Tao, or Allah, or the Torah, Nebi’im and Ketuhim, or believe in nothing at all. If I know who I am with my self-will directed by a Greater Good then it doesn’t matter who you are. I can love you like I love God and my spiritual self.

Sometimes in life it seems like you can’t go forward without going back to understand where you came from. But with the TROML Attitude you go back to find inspiration, extract it and use it to go forward in your life. No matter what happened in your childhood or along the way to where you are now, there is inspiration to be captured and used only if it is the gift of life given to you by your parents and God. Along the way from life experiences, friends and family, struggles and successes, thoughts, words and behaviors witnessed or expressed personally there is an abundance of inspiration to build your life on today and for the rest of your life.

I know this can sound a bit bizarre. If someone had told me on September 2nd, 2000 that all this was possible in my life if I only started a journal and followed the TROML PLAYBOOK for the next 17 days I would have thought it an odd sort of proposal. I had forgotten how powerful our human mind and spirit can be. I had forgotten how natural life itself really is at any and all ages with the right TROML Perspective.

We all have dots in our lives and have told individual stories to make a point. Now it’s time to connect those dots through TROML and thoroughly enjoy peace, joy and the freedom of life for the rest of your life!

Pause, breathe, get your TROML PLAYBOOK here and relax and take it easy, live naturally and powerfully for the rest of your life!

Absolutely, positively, without a doubt.

Have a TROML Day Today!
