UHarold W. Percival



Njengoba uHarold W. Percival asho eSandulelweni Sombhali Ukucabanga Nekusasa, wakhetha ukugcina ukubhala kwakhe ngemuva. Kwakungenxa yalokhu ukuthi akazange afise ukubhala umlando wokuphila komuntu noma ukubhala i-biography. Wayefuna ukuthi imibhalo yakhe izimele ngokwabo. Inhloso yakhe kwakungukuthi ubuqiniso bezitatimende zakhe bungathonywa ubuntu bakhe, kepha buhlolwe ngokwezinga lokuzazi ngaphakathi komfundi ngamunye. Noma kunjalo, abantu bafuna ukwazi okuthile ngombhali wenothi, ikakhulukazi uma bebandakanyeka nemibhalo yakhe.

Ngakho-ke, kukhulunywa ngamaqiniso ambalwa ngoMnu. Percival lapha, futhi imininingwane eminingi iyatholakala kweyakhe Isandulela Sombhali. UHarold Waldwin Percival wazalelwa eBridgetown, eBarbados ngo-Ephreli 15, 1868, endaweni eyayinabazali bakhe. Wayengowesithathu ezinganeni ezine, akekho noyedwa kubo owasinda kuye. Abazali bakhe, u-Elizabeth Ann Taylor noJames Percival babengamaKrestu azinikele; nokho okuningi ayekuzwile esemncane kakhulu akuzange kubonakale kunengqondo, futhi zazingekho izimpendulo ezigculisayo emibuzweni yakhe eminingi. Wabona ukuthi kufanele kube khona labo abaziyo, futhi esemncane kakhulu wazimisela ukuthi uzobathola "Abahlakaniphileyo" futhi afunde kubo. Njengoba iminyaka idlula, umqondo wakhe "Wabahlakaniphileyo" washintsha, kepha inhloso yakhe yokuthola ukuzazi yahlala ikhona.

(1868 - 1953)

Lapho eneminyaka eyishumi ubudala, ubaba wakhe washona futhi umama wakhe wathuthela e-United States, wahlala eBoston, futhi kamuva eNew York City. Wabheka unina cishe iminyaka eyishumi nantathu waze washona ngo-1905. UPercival waba nentshisekelo kuTheosophy futhi wajoyina iTheosophical Society ngo-1892. Lowo mphakathi wehlukana waba ngamaqembu ngemuva kokufa kukaWilliam Q. Judge ngo-1896. UMnu. Percival kamuva wahlela ITheosophical Society Independent, eyahlangana ukutadisha imibhalo kaMadame Blavatsky kanye "nemibhalo" yaseMpumalanga.

Ngo-1893, nakabili futhi eminyakeni eyishumi nane eyalandela, uPercival “waqaphela ukwazi,” Uthe ukubaluleka kwalolo lwazi ukuthi kwamenza akwazi ukwazi nganoma yisiphi isihloko ngenqubo yengqondo ayibiza ukucabanga kwangempela. Uthe, "Ukwazi Ukuqwashisa kuveza 'okungaziwa' kulowo obekade azi kangako."

Ngo-1908, futhi iminyaka eminingana, uPercival nabangane abaningana babephethe futhi basebenza cishe amahektare angamakhulu amahlanu wezithelo, ipulazi, kanye ne-cannery engamakhilomitha angamashumi ayisikhombisa enyakatho yeNew York City. Lapho le ndawo ithengiswa uPercival wagcina cishe amahektare angamashumi ayisishiyagalombili. Kwakukhona lapho, eduze neHighland, NY, lapho ayehlala khona phakathi nezinyanga zasehlobo futhi wanikela ngesikhathi sakhe emsebenzini oqhubekayo wemibhalo yakhe yesandla.

Ngo-1912 uPercival waqala ukuveza imininingwane yokuthi incwadi iqukethe uhlelo lwakhe oluphelele lokucabanga. Ngenxa yokuthi umzimba wakhe bekumele uthule ngenkathi ecabanga, ubemyalela noma nini lapho kutholakala usizo. Ngo-1932 uhlaka lokuqala lwaqedwa futhi lwabizwa Umthetho Wokucabanga. Akazange anikeze imibono noma afinyelele iziphetho. Esikhundleni salokho, wabika lokho akwaziyo ngokucabanga okuqinile, okugxile. Isihloko sashintshelwa ku Ukucabanga Nekusasa, futhi le ncwadi yaphinde yanyatheliswa ngo-1946. Ngakho-ke, lo msebenzi wobuciko obungamakhasi ayinkulungwane ohlinzeka ngemininingwane ebalulekile esintwini kanye nobudlelwano bethu nomkhathi nangaphezulu wakhiqizwa esikhathini esiyiminyaka engamashumi amathathu nane. Kamuva, ngo-1951, washicilela Indoda Nomfazi Nezingane futhi, ngo-1952, Ubungcweti Nezimpawu Zakho—Ekukhanyeni kwe Ukucabanga Nekusasa, futhi Intando yeningi Izibusa Ngayo.

Kusuka ku-1904 kuya ku-1917, uPercival washicilela umagazini wenyanga, Izwi, eyasakazwa emhlabeni wonke. Ababhali abaningi bosuku bafaka isandla kulo, futhi zonke izingqinamba zaziqukethe nendatshana kaPercival. Lokhu kuhlela kukhonjisiwe kudaba ngalunye kwezingu-156 futhi kwamzuzela indawo ku- Ngubani Ngubani eMelika. ILizwi Foundation liqale uchungechunge lwesibili lwe The Word ngo-1986 njengomagazini wamakota amathathu otholakala kumalungu awo.

UMnu Percival udlule emhlabeni ngezimbangela zemvelo ngoMashi 6, 1953 eNew York City. Isidumbu sakhe sashiswa ngokwezifiso zakhe. Kukhulunyiwe ukuthi akekho noyedwa umuntu ongahlangana noPercival ngaphandle kokuzwa ukuthi uhlangane nomuntu ophawuleka ngokweqiniso, futhi amandla akhe negunya lakhe bekungazwakala. Ngakho konke ukuhlakanipha kwakhe, wahlala emnene futhi enesizotha, umnumzane wokuthembeka okungenakonakala, umngane ofudumele nozwela. Wayehlala ekulungele ukuba wusizo kunoma yimuphi umfunayo, kepha angalokothi azame ukuphoqa ifilosofi yakhe kunoma ngubani. Wayengumfundi othanda izifundo ezihlukene futhi wayenezintshisekelo eziningi, kufaka phakathi imicimbi yamanje, ezombusazwe, ezomnotho, umlando, izithombe, i-horticulture ne-geology. Ngaphandle kwethalente lakhe lokubhala, uPercival wayenesifiso sezibalo nezilimi, ikakhulukazi isiGreki nesiHeberu sakudala; kodwa kwathiwa wayevinjelwa njalo ukuthi enze noma yini ngaphandle kwalokhu ngokusobala wayelapha.

UHarold W. Percival ezincwadini zakhe nakweminye imibhalo wembula isimo seqiniso, namandla, womuntu.
