ALEC the Amazon BESTSELLER


On July 21st, for the second time this year, ALEC, Book One of the Alexander Trilogy, had been offered for free on the Amazon. I hope you got your copy. A few months ago, the book has achieved the distinction of being:

#1 Bestseller in Metaphysical Fiction,
#1 in Visionary, and
#1 in Time Travel categories

 of Amazon Sales Rating. Since, Amazon has extended the novel to “young adult,” “mystery,” “new Adult & College” and a few other categories. ALEC, though essentially an adventure novel, also helps to illustrate the first steps we must all take towards discovering our true nature. The steps which lead to the eventual unification of our Self with our ego. The time when we become One. And now, lo and behold, the same three #1 placements had been achieved within just a few hours. Once again ALEC is a bestseller!

You will follow Alec Baldwin, a precocious lad with unbridled imaginations, as he explores the creative potential innate within his individuality. He even inspires his parents to reach out for their hopes, to fulfill their aspirations. Will they all succeed?
Alec expands his consciousness high enough to dwell, at times, in the realm of imagination. To him, as indeed to some of us, this realm is as real as our physical reality. For most of us it only occurs in dreams, when wittingly or not our brains enter alpha rhythm. But we can all do it. The potential is dormant within us.
Alec reaches out beyond that. He meets himself among the stars...
“The cosmic merging of Alec and Sandra (Alexandra?) is exceptional writing, even for you. It should touch every sensitive reader in their innermost centers,” wrote Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA.

Alec will take you on an adventure you’ll never forget. Below you can glance at some reactions from my readers. Just a few 5 STAR blurbs from the Amazon:

TERRORISTS - International Intrigue


A few days ago I made a half-hearted proposal on Facebook. The vital point was that for each woman or child, let alone man, our bombs kill, a new aspiring terrorist is born. After all, every action precipitates an equal yet opposite reaction. It restores—no matter how unpleasant—balance.
As for the rest of my proposal a:

FIVE YEAR MORATORIUM
ON THE EXPORT OF ARMS

I have been a little premature in my assumptions. Apparently in Fallujah (Iraq) the IS had engaged in large-scale improvised weapons production. Now that Fallujah has been retaken by friendly forces, there is no reason to believe that the terrorists have any other manufacturing capabilities.

As of now, we kid ourselves thinking that we can continue to make a fortune by selling arms, and defeat the enemy which is using them. Yet this seems to be the prevailing philosophy not only in the USA but in, Western Europe, Jordan, Turkey and other greedy nations. (We also export military vehicles to countries with abysmal Human Rights record).
To my knowledge, the men and women forming the haphazard ranks of various terrorist organizations do not own a single munitions factory. They also do not manufacture any vehicles, tanks, even motorcycles. Furthermore, there are no farmers amongst them, none of their members produce anything at all - except death. Every single item which they use to murder us, and their own people who do not show absolute obedience to the misguided version of their beliefs, is supplied to them by us. By the taxpayers of particularly the western nations. We alone are responsible for great many deaths. Until ‘ordinary’ people rise against their own plutocrats who grow rich out of murder, nothing will change.
We continue to support governments which indulge in international intrigues for the sole purpose of making money for the rich. This is not fiction. This is fact.


As for fiction, one such scenario of international intrigue is suggested in the novel ELOHIM, the sequel to ONE JUST MAN.  My publisher writes: “In truly Stan Law’s style, this book is both, a bold exploration of human potential, and an international thriller. As an added bonus, Peter Thornton shows us the way to join him in the realm of man’s ultimate destiny.”
People seem to like it.
"A sparkling novel that frames Dr. Peter Thornton's intensely personal journey of self-discovery in the best of high stakes international intrigue," wrote B. Symonds on Amazon.
Later you can enjoy Book Three of the Trilogy, WINSTON’S KINGDOM.

Below a few FIVE STAR blurbs:

Bestsellers come in Pairs


The Trilogy consists of ALEC, the precocious boy coming of age, who grew up to be ALEXANDER, the young man who become a brilliant physicist determined to unlock the secrets of the Universe. In Book Three, his son, SACHA, took the journey even further. Unable to reconcile the phenomenal reality with his inner knowledge, he decided to work, slave and research until he found out what is his dharma, his purpose in this world. Finally, he did and his discovery will upset the whole of humanity for all time.

 In Book Two, Alexander or Alex did not find it easy to reconcile the idealism of his youth with the pragmatism of adulthood. His early experiences made it particularly difficult, as “Princes Sandra” continued to lay claim on his mind, his emotions, and even his body. Sandra’s unrelenting demands took a heavy toll on Dr. Alexander Baldwin until he finally understood that Sandra was his inseparable inner Self. He found it amazing how often we forget that physically we are little more than transient vagabonds in an equally transient world. Our true Self is beyond time, beyond space, in a way omnipresent and immortal. Or, at the very least, we are individualizations of that which manifests those traits.
As he matured, Alexander took advantage of his knowledge by visiting ancient sites, civilizations, or just simply other realities. He found that we do not evolve by inventing ever-new gadgets which enable us to grow mentally and physically lazy, but by exploring our inner potential. This realization has rewards that lie beyond human understanding.


To my surprise, not all bestsellers conquer the market because of their sexually effusive contents. While most books on the market are replete with murder and eroticism with overtones of sadomasochism, there are those rare jewels which make the grade in the hearts and minds of the readers without appealing to our lower nature. ALEC is such a book, yet for weeks it rode the crest of the #1 Bestsellers on the Amazon in 3 different categories. Soon, I feel, it will be there again.
I can’t help hoping that when the time comes you, my dear, dear readers, will place ALEXANDER at the same level. Bestsellers… here we come!

The Eternal NOW

Most of my books have a tendency to play with the concept of time. I am not alone.

We are forced to accept the assurances of our physicists that time doesn’t really exist. Although both Aristotle and Newton believed in absolute time, later scientists put dents in the previous theories. First, Einstein showed time’s relativity to movement (velocity) and space, and later, Stephen Hawking elaborated on its fluctuations and other disturbing properties.”

The above quotation is from my book “VISUALIZATION” (non-fiction). For aficionados of mixed marriages, in Visualization, as well as in my latest novel, “AWAKENING”, you’ll find that science and religion are not as far apart as we imagined. After all, in the days of pharaohs, priests had been the sole keepers of knowledge. Only later science and religion succumbed to an acrimonious divorce. Yet Albert Einstein continued to claim that, “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” I’d suggest that he was not really referring to various religions as such, but the knowledge offered us by the great mystics, on which later religions were loosely based. I say loosely for a reason. E.g., Yeshûa, known later as Jesus, said that “heaven is within you.” Practitioners of religions, on the other hand, claim that you “go to heaven”, after you die. That would imply that you have to spend eternity in a corpse.
Religions have drifted far from the original teaching. Yet, they can only obfuscate science, they cannot deny it.

       Since, according to the man whom many regard as God, heaven is within us, I decided to explore such a condition in my novel (frankly, in most of my novels). But in “NOW—Being and Becoming”, I compromised. I didn’t allow my universal traveler to die, but to enter his inner world in a state of coma. I allowed the hero to explore his memories which, surely, made up the reality of his own, personal ‘heaven’. From the beginning of time.
Ultimately, my hero had to decide if he’d rather stay in heaven, wherein no danger could ever befall him, or return to the state of Becoming, with the attendant dangers, problems, and… opportunities of adding substance to the heaven he’d leave behind.
You, too, may be faced with such a Hobson’s choice. 


My novel reinforces science by accepting the medical and psychological truth that deep within the comatose patients consciousness exists. I also reinforced religion by accepting that there is ‘life’ or at least a state of consciousness, beyond time and space. Surely, we must define consciousness as life itself. Let me know if you agree. After all, it might happen to you, yet, after you read my book you might no longer be afraid. You might even look forward to such a possibility. It might be fun. Or… well…
Please, let me know.

Mystery of Trinity and Immortality


On January 31, 2001, I published essay “TRINITY”, which later became Essay #51, in Volume III of my BEYOND RELIGION Collection of Essays. The first paragraphs reads :

“It probably all started with the sacred syllable AUM, the Medic Trimurti. The secret sound conceals the unrevealed Deity, the Swayambhouva, That which is That, That which has Its Being in and of Itself. Emanating from this ineffable Deity, the initial Source, the germ of the universe, are the three-in-one trinities forming a Supreme Whole. From AUM thus emanate the Nara, Nari and Viradyi, the initial triad. The Agni, Vaya and Sourya, the manifested triad that follows is still secret, intangible, esoteric.”

Trimurti gave birth to virtually all later religions.
Trimurti is Sanskrit from tri meaning three, and mûrrti meaning body or shape. The rest of the inspired Triads is explained in the essay. The influence of the Trimurti on various future religions, ending with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost is self-evident.
And then I came across a strange statement by Meister Eckhart. He said that: “One who speaks about the Trinity lies!”
Too complex?
It got me thinking.
After long mental acrobatics, I concluded that for Meister’s Eckhart splitting Divinity into three aspects was not acceptable. His need for the Singularity was so strong that he couldn’t contemplate any division of the concept of the Singular Source, most of us refer to as God. Indeed, over the years, the concept of monotheism became prevalent in all major religions.

This concept served us well until our leading scientists, to wit, Albert Einstein, affirmed that there the universe we perceive with our senses is imaginary. That there is no matter, that at the quantum level all that we perceive as solid is made up of infinitely small, one-dimensional fragments of pulsating energy. This led, to what became known as the String Theory, initially developed by Gabriele Veneziano. And now we inherited a new problem. Even as religion tried hard to give meaning to the Universe, so did our scientists. Instead of God, they invented a Black Hole. Once it exploded from the initial void, things began to give problems. In science, what goes up, must come down. However, the scientists couldn’t find any force that would pull ‘it’ down. They invented Black Matter. Then Black Energy. They kept inventing concepts until they run out of concepts. To compensate, they converted the Universe into Multiverse or an agglomeration of universes. The more the merrier.
Still… no joy.


And that’s when it struck me. I remembered the saying “as above, so below”. Good, but not accurate enough. The truth lay in the expression: “As within so without,” and vice versa. “As without so within.” Suddenly all mystery unfolded itself. All fragments of vibrating energy fell into place. There was just one problem. I am neither a scientist nor a theologian. Eureka I murmured, and sat down to write “AWAKENING—Event Horizon”. It became a euphoric marriage of science and ancient myth.
Enjoy!

About Killing


“Thou shalt not kill!” we cry dropping bombs from 30,000 feet up in the air. We are safe up there. The women and children down below do not have land-to-air missiles.
“Love thy enemies,” added an unknown man by the name Yeshûa. Who might he have been? Love our enemies? He must have been kidding. Surely, if we loved them they’d no longer be our enemies. Didn’t he know that?
There are others who never heard of either man. Neither of Moses nor of Yeshûa. Anyway, they’ve been driven to the edge of insanity. They lost their country, their homes, often their families. There is no one left to love.
A young man shrugged his shoulders. Last night he saw a James Bond movie. If those long-dead men had been right, then those who kill are not 007. They are just 00. The real killers are those who give orders to kill. Does not each action precipitate an equal opposite reaction?
How can people love those who drop bombs on their homes, he mused? How can one love those mass murderers?

Even as individualized consciousness evolves, it grows and increases in diversity. Bacteria are very similar to each other. Flies begin to differentiate. Birds already sing different songs… and so forth.
Humans are never the same. At human level of evolution, each one of us has a different duty to perform. A different purpose. Regimentation into obedience to a single idea, a government, or an organization, is in direct opposition to the purpose of evolutionary diversity. Thus, by definition, individualization remains the prerogative of individuals. Each one of us is individually responsible for disobeying universal laws. Laws that try to maintain the balance of the final product; of the phenomenal reality.

Every government has dominion over its subjects. They rule, control, introduce new laws, enforce the previous ones to preserve peace. They have no authority to order anyone to kill anyone. Life is consciousness, manifesting through energies vibrating at different rates. Those energies include thoughts, emotions, and those at the lowest level which we perceive with our physical senses. Our physical bodies are not life—they are the transient result of forces manifested through us. The final result of that which is perceived and created by our consciousness. And our consciousness is no more than an individualization of the Single, omnipresent, indestructible Consciousness which is replete with Infinite Creative Potential.
The energy of Life is embodied in us and in all flora and fauna. You cannot kill life. Life is indestructible. By killing a body, any body, you destroy the final product of billions of years of evolution. Perhaps we really should not kill.


After 18 years of research Yeshûa, later known as Jesus, reached this conclusion. You might care to read how he arrived at it. They didn’t agree with Him then. And for some reason, His teaching is ignored by our governments and by the rest of us even today. We are a species of killers. What a pity.

MASTERS of LIFE and DEATH


Those who rely on the Bible often think that we have been put in charge of the animal kingdom to do with as we wish. They think that they are masters of life and death of all that walks, flies, and swims in our oceans. They seem to think that we have been given carte blanche, a free reign, to murder all living things so that we might live.
No so.
There is another biblical ‘item’ we must consider. In the Bible, the Hebrew word ‘nephesh’ is invariably translated as ‘soul’. On closer examination we learn that it should have been translated as animal soul. And this concept, in turn, means the subconscious, or the sum-total of all memories in a specific individualization that manifests life. And, if you choose to rely on the Bible, then rest assured that ALL animals are souls. Yes, including you and me. As individualized Consciousness continues to reincarnate, It advances to ever higher realization, until It arrives at conclusion that It, and It alone, is at the root of the Creative Process we call life. Eventually we all realize that, as the prophets of old have foretold, we are gods.

And then there is another item.
Genesis 1:30 states:
“To every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat.”

I assume that there is life within you. If yes, then this admonition applies to you. You must find your ‘meat’ within the green herb. Or… don’t claim to have anything to do with Judeo-Christian ethic. And don’t say that Yeshûa has eaten meat. So has Buddha, rather than let it go to waste. And Yeshûa produced fish from an ‘empty’ basket to feed 5000 people.
And if you discard the Bible as a source of accumulated knowledge, then Homer stated it quite convincingly in his Odyssey: “Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.”
Yes, this applies to bacteria and viruses, that often are much stronger than we are. Here’s hoping that humans are more advanced on the scale of evolution than the microscopic bugs. Are you? Or do you still eat other animals. (I, too, still cheat on occasion).
We have been given husbandry, not license to murder.


And this brings us to cats and dogs. To their minds and souls. Every single story has been dictated to me by my friends. They don’t always come out quite right, but, well, nothing is perfect in this world. One day they, too, will eat only ‘green meat”. As we do.
