" When the sound and wholesome nature of man
acts as an entirety, when he feels himself in the world as in
a grand, beautiful, worthy and worthwhile whole, when this harmonious
comfort affords him a pure, untrammelled delight: then the universe,
if it could be sensible of itself, would shout for joy at having
attained its goal and wonder at the pinnacle of its own essence...
For what end is served by the expenditure of suns
and planets and moons, of stars and milky ways, of comets and
nebula, of worlds evolving and passing away, if at last a happy
man does not involuntarily rejoice in his own existence?"
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe. (1749-1832 AD)

Kaare passed through the gate of death February 9, 2019. He had
been increasingly withdrawing from the physical world, focusing all his
attendtion on spiritual aspects of life and especially life after death.
He missed experiencing the gobal reaction to the COVID Pandemic. While he
could have been of great help in life, we have to think that he is
doing a greater service on the spiritual plain where he can have a
more far-reaching benefit.
He was reworking a book he had began 35 years
ago. Laughing with Doomsday was published in November 2021 and
is widely available. Informaion for it can be found on
www.kaarebursell.com or from Xlibris Publishing as below.
As you can observe, this is an old website using outdated programs.
Kaare, himself, forgot how to log on as an editor and it's been a struggle
to regain access for updates. His first wish was to publish his latest book,
Laughing with Doomsday, which took up my efforts until it was published at
the end of 2021. He also wanted to keep this website running for use by
any interested. He wanted his work to continue to be in the world.
The intention is to update the format and to make his audio and video
lectures and cooking class videos avaiable here and on his U-Tube channel.
This requires that I gain knowledge about website creation and editing.
Please excuse some of the errors that have already been introduced due to
that lack of technical understanding. They will be corrected and the site
made more presentable over time. I will try to have a comments section if there
isn't that option already.

A note to say additions to the website will be few
since fundamentally all the information is presented which
will allow anyone to start a macrobiotic life on a sound basis.
Also I am busy researching the answer to the question "What
Is Money" and the fruits of my labors will appear in audio
lectures or U-tuve videos as they are uploaded.
I was a regular contributor to the "Alternatives"
Column of the publication: HEPATITIS Magazine.This was a nationally
distributed quarterly out of Houston, Texas. The seventh and
last column appeard in the Winter 2004 Issue.
