When you enter my breezeway, the wooden beam welcomes you with a painted eagle hovering above the open pages of a book. Bold Latin words proclaim: "Verba locuta volant, litera scripta manet". Translated, it means: "Spoken words are fleeting, the written word remains."
I don't know the author of the phrase, his name is long lost to history, but I've taken it as my credo and the reason I am so adamant about keeping the work of Joseph R. Scogna Jr. in print.
Joe lectured and taught a great deal; he was eager to share his philosophy. It seemed he had years ahead of him, plenty of time for recording seminars. We could always record and film later. Who could have imagined an early demise for this energetic young man?
So it is through his own words published in books and courses that Joe continues to reach out to a new generation of students in such fields as holistic evaluations and solutions, energetic healing, homeopathy, elementology, acupuncture, electronic pollution, nutrition, emotional release work, etc. Even today, people are amazed at how far ahead of his time Joe was; how far ahead of us he still is!
Following the Latin phrase on my breezeway beam are the names of the countries where Joe's books are being read: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, and Turkey. And now I have another country to add to the list: Finland.
Wow! 24 countries.
Joe would be pleased!
