Donald B. Carroll spent his career working in Fire &Rescue, as a firefighter/paramedic, company officer, district chief, and an academy instructor. During those thirty-plus years, he raised a family and pursued the meaning of life through extended study into scientific, spiritual, and philosophical materials. His career was one of daily, real life; in the trenches gritty decision making that was the crucible for teaching his soul that we are all more than that, more than our physicality. He has been a regular speaker and writer of metaphysical topics, ancient culture symbolism, and a tour leader to many of the ancient sites he has written about. Much of his research includes spiritual symbolism its meaning and how it is shared across cultures and incorporated in sacred sites for the same perennial purpose.
