Meet the real life Forest Gump. David Drapela’s life is an adventure that books are written about. From being broke, to cruising the world for years on a yacht, David has seen the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows. David says that he never had an original thought, he just looked to the universe for answers and followed its guidance. One of David’s many blessings has been his ability to write many spiritual writings. He has done this for over forty years. His favorite sayings, “Stay in the River” and “Be in the world, but not of it.” As a young child he had insights that were hard for adults to understand. Eight years ago he felt his pulse rate begin to slip, it got slower and slower until he lost consciousness. He drifted off into a different realm, where he was met by many loving spirits with an immense and overwhelming love.
