Ian founded and runs the charity Miracle Network. He is also a trained geologist, worked in the oil industry, loves to travel and gets involved in theatre, especially as an actor. He published his first book in 2012 — “Of Course! How Many Light Bulbs Does It Take to Change?: Reflections on A Course in Miracles”. His only ambition is to be happy.
In his own words:
Why did you want to tell your story in ‘Love Me As I Am’?
I wanted to contribute to this book because I believe its purpose is extremely important — indeed, nothing could be more important than having every human being feel happier and more comfortable ‘in their own skin’. We all face our challenges, but those that gay men face in life has not been addressed much before in a caring and truly helpful way. So, this was my opportunity to play my part and share my story. My work in recent years has been about the evolution of consciousness and here is once such positive evolutionary move of which I wanted to be a part. I hope and trust this book will change perceptions and change many lives.
How did sharing your story impact your life?
In turn, participating has helped me get more clarity about my life’s path, the process of my evolution, from the family and environment I grew up in to where I am now, warts and all. I believe life is a path of growth. I am not at the end of the path, a finished product, but this exercise has advanced me enormously on the journey into knowing who I truly am.
