The Sages Series

Useful lessons in life can come from a wide variety of divergent sources, both good and bad. From sources of good we can readily learn the right thing to do, a leader like Gandhi comes to mind. But we can just as readily learn what we should not do from bad sources like Charles Manson. Both men were leaders, had followers, and offered instruction on how to behave, but the results of their instruction are as starkly opposed as night and day. I created the series Sages, Mystics, Oracles, Gurus and Clairvoyants, etc. as an exploration of models of behavior to illustrate what can be learned from the polar opposites of good and evil.
