I dropped out of the normal pattern of behavior and followed the modes and life-styles that seemed to be prevalent in the late 1960's.

Fortunately for me, I was brought up in Christian Science, even though at that particular time in my life I was not applying it to my situation. I finally realized that I was trying to work things out from a strictly material viewpoint. I realized that by being anti-establishment, and always finding fault with something, I was actually admitting that man lacks God-given qualities and can be separated from God.
