Daniel Walker, Interview #153

Name: Daniel Walker

Where you live: New Zealand

What you do as a vocation or avocation? Detective and Author

What are your two favorite books? The Bible and A Wolf Story by Jes Byron Huggins

Your two favorite songs: "The Power of Love" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood and "I want to know what love is" by Foreigner.

Why you are interested in spirituality? Because I have found it to be the essence of who I am as a human being and as a man.  It has allowed me to "suck the marrow" out of life without it passing me by. 

Your favorite quote:  "All men die one day. Not all men truly live." 

Your favorite web sites: and

Your hero? Jesus is my hero, because he seems to me to be the most "unreligious" person who ever lived and was yet the most fully alive human being who ever lived.   I love it that it was the "religious" people he upset the most and who ultimately wanted him dead. 

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?  I hope to learn how to love more fully and become more fully alive, even as my body ages and decays. 

A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"  New Zealand has so many beautiful places where I have felt "connected" and for that we are very spoilt.
