The first high heel wearers are believed to have been Persian horseback warriors sometime around the ninth century. The extended heel was reportedly developed specifically for riding, to keep the rider’s foot from slipping out of the stirrups. It also helped to hold the rider steady when standing up in the stirrups and shooting arrows. A group of Persian diplomats visited Europe in 1599 to recruit allies to help Persia defeat the Ottoman Empire. A craze for Persian culture developed as a result and Persian-style high heeled shoes were adopted enthusiastically by Western European aristocrats.
The shoes became a status symbol and the heels were extended to make the men look even taller. (This is thought by many etymologists to be where the term “well heeled”, meaning “wealthy” originally came from.) Just as the 1980s had notorious shoe collector Imelda Marcos, the 1600s had a rabid shoe collector and trend setter in Louis XIV of France. While he was a powerful leader, his height left something to be desired at five feet, four inches tall (1.62 m), which was slightly below average in his day. (The average height for men in France at the time, in modern international units, was 5 ft. 5 inches or 1.65 m. Note: Contrary to popular belief, Napoleon was not short; he was two inches taller than the average in his day.)
A king being slightly shorter than average wasn’t ideal for his ego, so Louis took measures to make himself look taller, sporting four inch heels, often decorated with elaborate battle scenes. Eventually, he switched to having red heels on all his shoes and decreed that only the upper echelons of society could have matching red heels. It became a simple matter of looking at the color of a man’s heels to see if he was in the king’s inner circle.

had studied to be an accountant, but found the business world not to be of my liking, so became a teacher of accounting instead, and taught for 22 years before retiring at 57 to write about what I had learned over a period of approximately 25 – 30 years. I had bought many spiritual books in which I found the answers I was seeking, and spent many years studying them, particularly A Course in Miracles and Love Without End – Jesus Speaks, authored by Glenda Green. I came to understand that much of what we have been taught by the church and the sciences that dealt with the universe was open to question, and in the end, had a strong desire to put my thoughts about the universe, the mind/body relationship, ego, and consciousness into a book where I could draw all that I’d read in other spiritual books together so as to bring a more unified understanding of who we are, what our purpose is, and the reason we are here to the people, and so wrote The Profound Truth of Divine Existence – A New Modern Teaching.
I have not openly discussed much of what is in the book I have written with people, except for my youngest son. He became a sounding board for my concepts and ideas, and I spent a number of years talking with him during the evenings at home here, in order to hear what he thought of them, and to also clarify in my own mind how to present them in a manner that could be understood by those who sought the spiritual path to life. Some of it is quite complex, and requires an open mind if one wishes to accept the concepts into their being.
I have written my second book Innocent and True Perception, but it has not been published yet, and probably won’t be until later in the year, as I wish to see how my first book goes.
