Tell us about the seven Rules of the Blessings? How do they work?

The Rules of the Blessings includes seven Rules that show how the human spirit is enhanced as well as depleted to better understand this process and maximize its potential. Their rules closely parallel the research on how human energy is enhanced, lowered, and shifts between Realms. The seven rules include the following.  One, the Rule of Doing. Know what actions boost and deplete energy.  Two, the Rule of Being. Know what virtues and vices reflect strong or weak energy.  Three, the Rule of Keys. Know what key Realms can boost the energy in the related Realm. Four, the Rule of Balance. Know the importance of achieving balance of energy in all Realms. Five, the Rule of Moderation.  Realize that when you bring too much energy into one Realm, it may weaken other Realms. Six, the Rule of the Gathering. Understand how the energy of a group can boost or deplete the energy of the individuals in the group and how an individual can either boost or deplete the energy of a group. Finally, seven, the Rule of Challenges. When challenged by others who take your energy in a Realm, you will have no strength if you respond by taking energy from your other Realms, you will have more strength if you respond by bringing more energy into the Realm, and you will have the most strength when you bring energy into all of the people who gather with you.

Tell us about the Seven Plagues? How do they come about?

The Last Scroll predicts seven plagues that will affect the people of the world unless we make the changes to our individual and collective energy in each of the Seven Realms. It states that these disasters will begin one thousand years after the first millennium or year 2000 when the collective energy of at least a third of the people in a group is low. Groups may include couples, families, communities, states, and nations. The Seven Plagues include ignorance in the Mind Realm, illness in the Body Realm, poverty in the Way of Life Realm, drought in the Nature Realm, despair in the Emotional Realm, hate in Spiritual Realm, and war in the People Realm.

How did you go about writing this book?

Through my research and clinical practice, I have thought about the concepts in this books for many years. However, I did not have the time to put them into words until the past year. During this time, I found the best writing places are anywhere and everywhere. I have a tiny home office with a simple desk cluttered with papers which I use as references. I occasionally try to escape to our cabin on a peninsula on Loon Lake to write while viewing beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the windows surrounding the whole cabin.  I often sit at our kitchen island with my family around and write. They inspire me to see clearly the life that I have. My wife, Delia, who is from Italy, may be preparing some ragu for our pasta or coffee in the morning. I also occasionally spread out on the old solid wood dining table but we eat most dinners there and will have to clear away the papers. I occasionally write while watching a movie or sitting in bed instead of reading.


A chance meeting with an old classmate leads Ryan Laughlin, a dedicated young physician, to an ancient Roman spa in a medieval village of Italy where researchers are studying two remarkable events that could change the course of history—a new technology that claims to measure the essence of life itself, the human spirit, and the final Dead Sea Scroll which was recently discovered in the West Bank.

The Last Scroll reveals universal truths about the nature of life through Seven Blessing but warns of Seven Plagues of the Beast that are emerging this century causing alarm and protests around the world.

While visiting the spa to learn these secrets and enjoy the food, wine, and culture of Italy, Ryan finds himself the target of a killer who claims the project is heresy and will do anything to stop it. In a deadly race through ancient Italy, he is desperately trying to save the only woman he has loved since the death of his wife.
