Jeff Rasley had a successful law practice for 30 years, made profitable investments, and so left law for more satisfying endeavors at the age of 55. I am the president of one foundation and serve on the board of 5 nonprofit corporations. In addition to 40+ articles, I've written eight books, six nonfiction and two fiction. The most recent was published Nov 11, 2014, GODLESS -- Living a Valuable Life Beyond Beliefs at http://www.amazon.com/dp/069232481X. It advocates replacing religious doctrines and political ideologies with pragmatic humanistic values.
The major claim of the book is "Beliefs divide us; values unite us." It makes the case that religious extremism and political gridlock can be defeated with pragmatic decision-making guided by shared values. It also argues that our own lives are more valuable when we recognize our own and others' common humanity and then guide our life decisions by positive values. Finding our own unique equilibrium of taking care of ourselves and sharing our time and talents is encouraged, rather than trying to follow religious doctrines or political ideologies. The book straddles memoir, philosophy-theology, social science, and advice/self-help. Wisdom gained from the Rai people of Basa Nepal, Quaker values, and the American philosophy of classical Pragmatism are interwoven (probably a first in English literature).
Today's guest is Jeff Rasley a successful lawyer for 30 years, he made profitable investments, and so left law for more satisfying nonprofit endeavors at the age of 55. He's the president of one foundation and serve on the board of 5 nonprofit corporations. The post-retirement nonprofit effort which has been most meaningful to me is the Basa Village Foundation. It has finished a school with five grades, built a hydroelectric system, provided computers and educational materials for the school, smokeless stoves for all the homes in the village, toilets for the school, a temporary medical clinic, and we have started working on a clean water system. Basa Village is a beautiful little village in the Himalayan Mountains inhabited by the Rai people with their own unique culture. Prior to 2007 the villagers lived similar to the way people lived during the Middle Ages with no running water, electricity, toilet system or stoves. In Basa there are no vehicles with wheels, not even wheel barrows or bicycles.
Early in life Jeff, was an avid adventure traveler. In his 20s and 30s he had several adventure travel articles published about scuba diving and motorcycle trips. When he turned 40, at the suggestion of his wife to help resolve a "mid-life crisis", he hiked the Mt. Everest Base Camp Trail for the first time. He then took up Himalayan Mountaineering and solo sea-kayaking and wrote several articles about those experiences.
Since leaving the law Jeff devoted much time to passing on to others what wisdom he's gained through combining financial success with adventure travel and philanthropy.

Shelly Roberts and Joffrey Matheson have watched friends fall in love and take that giant step—marriage—promising to share their lives together. Now it’s their turn. They’ve been paired as the perfect couple, according to Allanville’s Matchmakers Committee. Yes, their friendship has developed and grown. Yes, they are compatible, enjoy each other’s company, and want the same things out of life. Most importantly, they’re both seeking a meaningful relationship. Family and friends are excited as they cheer them on. Everyone is anticipating and waiting for the big news.
Humph, that’s a joke!
Instead, they keep getting sickening, whining excuses; there are no sparks…no chemistry…we’re just friends…you know, a yummy peanut butter sandwich but with syrup instead of jelly. The million-dollar question, how can you develop a serious relationship when you’re still carrying a torch for someone from your past? Where they do that at? In the small town called Allanville?
