The Secret Within

In 8th century BC, man named Isaiah, reputed to have been a prophet, made a strange discovery. He discovered the secret underlying our state of consciousness. Isaiah also discovered that we were not born with this ‘superego’, but if we were lucky, then such a state of consciousness might emerge on the fringes of our awareness at any time when we open ourselves, our minds, to whatever it is that lies dormant within us.
Some 300 years later, around 5th century BC, another man called Siddhartha Gautama, who became known as Buddha, made the same discovery. Until we become aware of this inner state of consciousness, Buddha claimed, we were not really awake. We remain dormant.
Later still, some 2000 years ago, a man called Yeshûa said that unless we become aware of that inner life within us, we remain still dead. “Let the dead bury the dead,” he once said, equating a physical body to a dead condition until we become alive by discovering the life within us.
The only life Yeshûa recognized was a state of consciousness aware of its true nature. It had nothing whatsoever to do with any religion. Just a simple truth of which, it seems, the vast majority, the ‘many’, are not aware of. When they become aware of it, they become the ‘chosen’ few. Strange how few choose to be among the chosen. After all, it is up to us. All we need do is to sublimate our ego and recognize that we are more than our physical bodies.
Some 2800+ years after Isaiah, a man called Sigmund Freud, an uncompromising atheist, came close. He named this, or very similar state of consciousness, “superego”. No one knows why it took almost 3000 years to discover that Isaiah was not preaching any form of religion, or what scientists call superstition, but a deep analysis of human nature. There were no churches, not even temples in the days of Isaiah. He had to make do with conveying his knowledge directly to the people, in the hope that some of it might sink in and help people to find purpose in their lives.
Not much has changed.

All four men referred to the same condition.
It takes years to understand the mental acrobatics that Freud indulged in to explain his method. Volumes have been writer about it. It takes just about as long to comprehend the inner teaching of Buddha. As for the Yeshûa’s teaching, to this day it is twisted beyond recognition.
Only Isaiah managed to encapsulate the whole discovery into just a few lines. In Chapter 8:22 & 9:1–8, he explained, precisely, the whole process of awakening. You may have to read my Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism to grasp the consequences of the discovery, but the wisdom still remains expressed in 9 simple verses. If you want to know the secret, read for yourself. It will take you a few minutes to discover who you really are.
Today we celebrate the birth of New Consciousness.
Merry Xmas.

Intolerable Evil?

We all heard about power tending to corrupt and Lord Acton’s dictum, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”. I’d written a blog about it earlier this year (February 5, 2013). Perhaps, there is one exception—the President of Uruguay? On the other hand, we all know which country is the most powerful in the world and, if we can trust Lord Acton’s reasoning often repeated by both president Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, we can draw our own conclusions, which country is, per force, the most corrupt.

Here, however, we are not concerned with corruption. Here we are concerned with the diametrically diverse forces pulling in opposite directions. In my essay (Beyond Religion I) I reached the conclusion that power is the opposite of love. Love is, or at least is detectable only among individuals, while governments are elected to wield power. Those heading the governments erase the concept of ‘love’ from the equation of their administration in order to ‘protect’ their citizens (read, “big business”). One never hears the word love in any speeches, or legislation. And yet “we the people”, keep electing governments. Allow me to quote a great English-American, Thomas Paine (1737–1809). Some centuries ago he proclaimed that:

Society in every state is a blessing,
but government in its best state is but a necessary evil,
 in its worst state, an intolerable one.

Could it be that Paine detected a conspicuous absence of love in the government’s behaviour? Imagine governments whose actions are motivated by love towards their citizen, let alone towards their purported enemies. They could call themselves Christians then. Yet nothing is as absent from government policies, let alone their power base—the military, as love.
“What does love have to do with governance?” they’d ask.
In government, love is a dirty world.
“We look after our citizens’ bodies, not their souls. Souls are the business to TV preachers or other proselytizers. We just kill our enemies. Fast. Preferably using machines that don’t give us any stupid posttraumatic disorders after wholesale murder. And most certainly, before they can kill us…”
“…we call it prophylactic killing. Killing just in case. You can love your enemies all you want. We have the power to kill them. It’s just collateral damage. We don’t mean them any harm…”

“…government in its best state is but a necessary evil,
 in its worst state, an intolerable one.”

Thank you Mr. Paine. We need more people like you around: in America, and Europe, and in other centers of power. Just to restore sanity. Until we do, I’ll repeat to all who care to listen that Power Is The Opposite Of Love. And absolute power is the opposite of Divine Love.

You can find other essays in similar vein in my Beyond Religion Series. I did my best NOT to be preachy, just to share some thoughts. There are 3 volumes of 50 essays each. One per day. Enjoy.

Power over the Opposites

There is no good and/or evil. They both exist only in our transient, ego generated, state of mind. We tend to decide what’s good for us; and what isn’t—we tend to define as evi
Not so.
Basically we can only define as ‘good’ that which lies in the middle, or serves the totality of the manifested Universe. Or that that our concepts of good and evil have in common. The reason for this is simple. All, absolutely everything that exists, originates from a single Source. Some call it God, others the centre of a gargantuan Black Hole—the mother of all Big Bangs? It is interesting that a black hole is also called a “Singularity”. Like One/Single God? We are the instruments of the single Source through which everything, material, emotional or mental evolves.
By ‘we’ I don’t mean just humans, of course, but everything that can serve to enhance, multiply, enrich or act in any way to advance the manifested Universe. Everything that coverts the potential into manifestation.

Some of us, the few that are (choose to be) chosen out of many (all) that are called, participate in this process consciously. We can do so at different levels, in all walks of life. Nobody is excluded from the process, yet very, very few participate in it at conscious level. When we do, we are likened to gods. At least, that’s what the Old and New Testaments claim.
I suspect that they are both right. The moment we accept our place in the Universal scheme of things, our power grows exponentially to serve the fulfillment of our purpose. Such purpose can be great or small, although all are indispensible. No one is excluded from this process, even if very few fulfill it in each and every incarnation.
Nevertheless, we mustn’t worry. We, the fractal components of the Universal Potential are immortal. No matter how many times we fail in our assigned task, we are given another, and yet another, chance to make it right. This is what the adherents of various religions refer to as “divine mercy”.
And such it is.
As inseparable units of Universal Consciousness we cannot die, or “go to hell”. We can, however, waste our life, and the resulting pangs of conscience would be akin to hell.
Yet this is where the “infinite (or divine) mercy” steps in again. Sooner or later we realize that even a long ‘life’, is but an insignificant fraction of eternity.  We shake off the darkness that clouded our vision, and direct our steps, our states of mind, towards light. And then…
And then, once again, we become aware of being an indivisible part of the Universal Consciousness. And that’s as close to heaven on Earth as we can get.
It’s worth the effort.

Peter and Paul, went through a lifelong struggle to reach this state of consciousness. It hadn’t been an easy road. Not in their days. Find out for yourself.

Defining the Indefinable. Was Baruch Spinoza right?

Baruch Spinoza was born in Amsterdam. His thoughts on the Divine were both controversial and unacceptable to the Jewish community that raised him. They kicked him out. Later, the Catholic Church put his book on the Index of Forbidden Books. The poor guy couldn’t win. By the time he turned 23 he became homeless. Nevertheless Hegel said later that: “You are either a Spinozist or not a philosopher at all.”
 Spinoza came into the orbit of my thoughts when I read his words that: “To define God, is to deny God”. There goes the Sistine Chapel…
Of course, he was right. To define means to “bring to an end”. To limit. And, surely, one can neither terminate nor limit the Infinite. For many years I agreed with Baruch. Still do. Yet now it seems that the influence of the anthropomorphic divinity on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is so powerful that something has to be said about the nature of the Absolute.

Think of poetry. It does not define but suggests, implies, alludes, nudges one into a direction wherein an image of that that has no image is gradually taking on an idea of an illusive presence. Perhaps while we cannot define the Infinite, we can postulate some of Its attributes.
We can think of a concept that is omnipresent yet expressing singularity, omniscient, outside any restrictions, and thus outside the confines of space or time, hence outside our concept of the Universe or even Multiverse.
To my mind there is only one option left.
‘God’ can be thought of as Infinite Potential. Once that potential is manifested in any tangible form—be it material, emotional or mental—it becomes definable. It may not be outside the Infinite, but it qualifies as only a tiny fraction of the Infinite, which, by having been created, by having had a beginning must also have its end. It is no longer undefinable.
Ergo, we are back to the Potential. 
Goodbye Sistine Chapel.

Times change. With the exception of my fundamentalist friends, I don’t expect to have a cherem issued against me. In Hebrew cherem means a banning, shunning, ostracism, expulsion or excommunication. That’s what happened to Spinoza. 
I am neither the first nor the last to speculate on what is really beyond speculation. The fun, however, is in the journey, in that brief moment before we revert back to the Potential. Perhaps a few billion years, at most?

There was a man who also speculated on the nature of reality and, perhaps, on its Source. It seems that he got closer to the truth than most of us, although we are, according to him, all “children of the same Source”. He didn’t fare any better than Spinoza. In fact, a lot worse.
The wonderful thing is that we, humans, have the equipment that allows us to speculate. To reach beyond the limits set by the material Universe. Some of us even use this ability. For me, this alone, is reward in itself.

Longevity—A Blessing or a Curse?

They say that only the good die young. If we examine the immediate past of some 2000 years, then this adage sounds a little too close for comfort.
Some of us want to live longer, although BBC reports that: “Alzheimer's Disease International says 44 million people live with the disease, but that figure will increase to 135 million by 2050.”
Live long and prosper?
Not any more, Mr. Spock

But there is hope. If we don’t live TOO long, we are much less likely to become a mental vegetable. I speak from experience. Both, dementia and Alzheimer’s affected members of my immediate family. It is not pretty. Not if you watch them from close by. When you do, they are no longer a statistic. They are real, bright, intelligent people loosing their mental, emotional integrity. Long life is not all it’s deemed to be. There are exceptions. I prefer not to count on being one of them.

Why do we insist on living longer? No matter how decrepit our bodies become, no matter how useless we become to the society, we seem to hold on to our bodies with broken nails. Don’t we know that we are immortal? That our bodies are little more than the means through which we add experiences to the real life that is beyond the ravages that physical reality offers?
Dozens of great prophets, mystics, philosophers, wise men and women tried to persuade us of this indomitable truth. And yet…
Every single night we leave our bodies… and dream, usually 4-6 times each night. We perform marvelous feats in our dreams, well beyond anything we could possibly do when lumbered with our physical enclosures. True, once we shed our material skin, our envelopes, we can no longer add to the storehouse of our memories, the storehouse of our subconscious, but, considering we are very likely to reincarnate again and again, surely, we shall have plenty of chances to do so in the future.
Why do we continue to hold on so tight to that which we no longer need?

There are hundreds, perhaps thousands—over the years probably millions—of people who accomplished more in a 35- or 40-year lifespan than most centenarians. Isn’t it time we thought of letting go when the time comes? Isn’t quality more important than quantity?
My suggestion is simple. For as long as we contribute to society we have duty to do so. When we become a burden… shouldn’t we let go? I don’t want to accumulate a debt I’ll only have to repay in my future incarnations.

As I mentioned above, I witnessed the ravages of dementia and Alzheimer’s in my own family. Don’t get me wrong. There is also love and laughter, yet… If you read The Gate you might decide if you really want to live long. Too long.

Absurd Abundance

I vaguely recall the American comic Bill Cosby telling his son that he can erase him, and make other one like him only better. My quotations may not be exact, but the sentiment is there. Mr. Cosby seems to be saying:  “Son, behave. I don’t need you. You need me.”
Perhaps it is time for us to start behaving. Nature provides us with free food, drink and other appurtenances of comfortable living. We waste them. All of us. Well, the vast majority.
In my last blog I wrote about the absurd abundance that nature built into our biological system. Yet nature did not stop there. It continued its extraordinary generosity throughout flora and fauna.
Did you ever wonder why does nature work on the principle of almost inexhaustible affluence? Think of the seeds and spores it produces from a single tree, a single rose, even grain from a stalk of wheat, apples in a single orchard.
Surplus. Overabundance. Generosity.
Almost inexhaustible.
Almost. Not quite.

Could it be that nature, in her wisdom, or out of the benevolence of the universe, wants to protect us, humans, from ever running out of nourishment? Or from other materials we need to build shelter, keep us warm?

We define financial independence by living from interest (including dividends and suchlike) from the riches we have accumulated during our, so-called, productive years. Nature keeps producing, presumably in the benevolent hope that we can live in perfect comfort and affluence while we inhabit our physical bodies.
And yet…
And yet we abuse her gifts. We no longer live from the absurdly generous interest that nature provides. We grow fat, obese; many of us accumulate much, much more that we need. More than one car, more than one dwelling, millions in our bank accounts—the list goes on. We wallow in our greed, and will continue to do so until we run out not only of nature’s interest, but of the capital itself.
Perhaps it doesn’t matter.
After all, we create our own universes, our realities in which we abide for short stints: our reincarnations.  Hopefully learning. After all, none of what we can perceive with our senses is real. Remember? Have you read my Delusions—Pragmatic Realism? You don’t have to, of course. You can find it all out for yourself, by yourself. After all, we all travel different paths, and hence we all pay the piper according to our understanding. But be sure, sooner or later, we all pay the piper. Nature is our bank and we all live on borrowed money.
Isn’t it fun?

We have a new pope who seems aware of the depth of depravity towards which humanity is careening. I once wrote a novel in which, likewise, a newly elected pope did what was necessary to save us from our greed. It is the sequel to The Avatar Syndrome. You might enjoy both stories. Let me know.

Gods: Work in Progress.

Sometime ago, the protagonist in one of my novels (Sacha—The Way Back), made this comment.
When the prophet of yore said that ‘ye are gods’, he forgot to add that to be gods you must act like gods. And gods don’t make mistakes. We do.”
There is a fundamental difference between the potential and its fulfilment. We, humans, are particularly spoiled.
Our genome carries hereditary information that spans millions of years. Even before we became bipeds our bodies went through evolutionary cycle accumulating primary knowledge, which enabled us to climb the evolutionary ladder. In case anyone thinks that they’ve reached an evolutionary apex, then let me assure them that we have a few billion years to go, before we are likely to be able to understand what evolution is all about.
Before we shall be gods even by today’s standards.
Of course, by then, a billion years hence, our expectations will have risen.
Yet, even today nature spoils us beyond reason. According to “Live Science”, Jan 24, 2013 report - “The average male will produce about 525 billion sperm cells over a lifetime...”
By contrast, women are born with an average 2 million egg follicles, yet by puberty, ‘only’ about 450 follicles will ever release mature eggs for fertilization. Luckily, this puts man’s absurd abundance in check.

Why such abundance? Such unmitigated waste? Such seeming ridiculous potential?
Ah, yes, it must have to do with our potential. Somebody else is controlling our bodies; the use of our mind is obviously lagging behind.

Given enough follicles, 25 billion sperm cells represents the potential each man has to populate not just the whole planet, but a habitable planetary system, or even a goodly segment of a galaxy—all by himself. Women do not have to worry. Many wise men told us that we all take turns, in alternate reincarnations, in the sexual orientation. And if worst came to worst, we would be limited, together, to 450 follicles each. A lot better than “Adam and Eve”! No wonder some of us, men, expect a minimum of 72 virgins. 
Never mind…
This may sound like science fiction, but if you have a better reason for the absurd abundance of our physical body then I’d like to hear it.
But let us take a step further.
If our physical potential represents a potential many billions of times greater than we can utilize today, could our mental potential be any less? Would we not need an equal abundance in mind-power to rule and/or administer our galactic segment even as… perhaps, our elder god-brothers do today?
Just think. You and I might be 25 billion times smarter than we are now.

If we take our present condition seriously, the status of gods-in-waiting, then we might think again how to conduct ourselves here and now—even if we are, at present, no more than babes in arms. Winston thought so. Let me know what you think. Try my Winston Trilogy. Or at least, the last part.

Hidden Wealth

2500 years ago, Socrates, recognized as perhaps the wisest man ever, and most certainly of his day, made a very strange statement. He said: “I know that I know nothing”.
Almost 500 years later, a man called Yeshûa, known to most as Jesus, expressed the same sentiment. He’d said, “Blessed are the meek at heart for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. To an unsuspecting onlooker those two statements do not appear to be saying the same thing.
Yet, there are. Surely, Socrates must have been very meek at heart to have asserted his ignorance.
Both men state that unless we are willing to admit that we are meek, unless we admit in all humility that we know nothing, the knowledge deeply embedded within our subconscious, let alone our unconscious, cannot penetrate the ramparts of pseudo knowledge we have accumulated in our physical form.

There is a fundamental difference between the knowledge acquired from books and that which reaches our awareness from within. The first deals only with exigencies of the illusion of reality which most of us recognise as our world. We are invariably forgetting that the physical or material reality is in constant ferment. Countless quadrillions of atoms continuously spinning in wild abandon, time shooting past our awareness, invariably leaving us behind the latest discoveries. Even stars and galaxies are receding from us at near the velocity of light, while those closer by are threatening to explode into novas, or collapse into the unknown mystery of black holes. And most of all, when we look at the very building blocks of what we regard as reality, when we look at atoms, we forget that they consists, essentially, of empty space.
Behold our reality.
Empty space.
An illusion.

Many mystics attempted to point our attention in the direction of truth. We pretend to listen, only to revert to our old ways. Living an illusion seems the choice of Homo sapiens. Paradoxically, the Latin name, Homo sapiens, means “wise man”. It is the name we have accorded ourselves, the presumptuous apes, who think they know almost everything. Actually ape means: “the imitator”. Not creator of new—but imitating what’s already there. We specialize in illusion. In imitating.
We delude ourselves. 

The mystics went ignored.
In the meantime, the scientists are actively looking for the Theory of Everything. They want to know absolutely everything about absolutely nothing. About empty space.
A wise man once asked what would the physicists do if one of them discovered the theory of everything? There would be nothing for them to do. Would the world end?
Or would they finally discover that for the last few thousand years they had been all travelling assiduously in the wrong direction.
Travelling without, rather then… within.

Wisdom of the American Forefathers

The wonderful thing is that in spite of the fact that the whole universe (of which we are aware) exists only within our consciousness, we all benefit from the contribution of all other individualizations of the omnipresent Single Consciousness. I spell It in capital letters to accord it equal importance to that which people usually assign only to their chosen divinity. Since each religion stipulates its own God, I prefer a “nondenominational” term.
And this brings me to today’s theme, to the American Forefathers. In their wisdom they incorporated the phrase E Pluribus Unum [Out of Many—One] into the seal of the United. A truly inspired decision.
But it’s more complicated.
There is a fundamental difference between the subjective and objective reality. Every concept of reality is born within. It may be stimulated by the input from our senses, but it must grow within our consciousness, until we are ready to share it with others. When many share the same idea, it becomes objective. E pluribus Unum, out of many a singular reality. That is how the USA was born.
The first chapter of Genesis in the Jewish masterpiece the Torah, describes how the divine spark within us brought ideas (the word) into our awareness. How the subjective idea that is born within, manifests itself without, by sharing itself with others.

That is the act of creation. I will NOT tell you how it happens, although you’ll find essays on the subject in my Beyond Religion Series that may help.
But I can suggest to you how the ancients thought it might happen. They created a magnificent compendium of symbolic ideas to share the idea with us. After all, life is change—and thus truth must be continually rediscovered in its infinite manifestations. You’ll have to decipher it yourself. My Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism will make it possible for you. You’ll find YOUR understanding, NOT somebody else’s. It’s up to you. The knowledge lies within each one of us. While truth may be one, it manifests differently through every one of us. Why else would the universe exhibit such astounding diversity?
Once again, enjoy!

Wonder Children

Did you ever wonder how come Mozart was able to compose classical, perhaps immortal, music at such an early age? There are others like him. We know them as child or infant prodigies. They are children who have knowledge and proficiencies which they could not have acquired since they were born.
Wikipedia lists hundreds of them. I suspect there are thousands more, unknown. They graced our species with their presence over many years, in many different fields. Did you ever wonder how could such genius let alone such an incredible diversity be possible?
They come under many names. Wunderkind. Enfant prodige. Prodigio. Cudowne dziecko. Csodagyerek… Every nation seems to have a special name for the unique, wonderful, incredible, inexplicable occurrence or talent.
A wonder child. It really sounds great, doesn’t it?
There have to be a lot more of them than we imagine.
Ever wondered why?
Or how, for that matter?
Incomprehensible… unless we accept the concept of reincarnation.

I want to tell you secret which you must promise to keep to yourself. It is incredible but… true. Ready? We are all wonder children. Every single one of us, only… later, somewhere along the way, the wonder seems to dissipate into the ethers… Conformity is forced upon us from day one.
Pity. Great pity
First our parents. Then teachers. Then priests and other religious leaders. Then professors at ‘higher’ institution of ‘learning’, bosses, political leaders and other dubious paragons of virtue…
Did you know that Einstein said that: “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school”? I might add, that we must forget even what we have learned before school, and keep only that magnificent storehouse of knowledge with which we were born. Then, and only then, we can develop it further.
After all, if our genes carry evolutionary knowledge going back millions of years, should we expect any less of our minds?

Some of us do remember. Vaguely. Perhaps not at conscious level, but the knowledge, the experience of past lives lingers at the periphery of our subconscious at that tremulous border between the conscious and the subconscious mind. If we sublimate our ego and admit the full potential developed over thousand of years to manifest itself, we begin to wonder at our own true heritage.
I feel it is within the power of every one of us to try it. To try it soon. Before the mists of “learning” imposed on us by our “superiors” obfuscate what is truly ours.
Please, please, don’t delay.

The story of one such child is told in the life of Sacha, a novel I wrote some time ago. Sasha—The Way Back. Perhaps before my own learning was hidden by the input from schools and institutions of higher learning. You might even enjoy the whole Alexander Trilogy. Let me know what you think.

Mysteries are OURS to solve

I am convinced that there is only ONE life regardless of reality in which it manifests itself. It seems that it is up to us to solve the mystery of how it manifests through our consciousness. It appears that reality has its own rules, even new dimensions—in the next reality we enter on leaving our physical bodies it is imagination. Whatever we imagine becomes instantly real. Likewise, the moment we remove our attention from it, it ceases to be. It takes some getting used to. We’ve all experienced it in our dreams. With practice, we can dream in full consciousness.
In one of my blogs I mentioned two vital items. One—that the subconscious NEVER forgets; and two—that as a direct consequence of ‘one’, the subconscious is the basis on which we build our ‘heaven’, i.e. our permanent abode.
To date, no scientist, or mystic, has disproven this theory. It will remain a working hypothesis until someone discovers a new theory that makes more sense.
What is more vital is that if my theory IS right, then by not taking advantage of it we risk our future for, perhaps, millions of years. Time in other realities is measured on a different scale. Remember dreams? I for one am not prepared to take that risk.
Are you?

There are consequences.
If our ‘heaven’ is made up of our thoughts and experiences while in the physical embodiment, we might be wise to assure that the reality we are creating is the sort of reality in which we’d want to spend a long time, let alone eternity.
Two thousand years ago a wise man said, “Whatever we fasten on earth will be fastened in heaven.” Hence I find it extremely important that whatsoever I fasten here is replete with fun. Yes, mostly fun. I fully intend to build a heaven for myself that will be full of joy, of fun, of laughter. Hence I’m careful what friends I choose, here, on Earth. On this valley of laughter.

It seems that we have no right to expect anyone else to build a heaven for us. After all, no one on Earth knows better than we do what we really like. I feel we must be very careful what thoughts we commit to memory, to our permanent memory storage. To our subconscious.
Hopefully, in each next incarnation, we shall be able to add to it, even if we’ll be unable to erase the past. It’s a one-way trip. In that sense, and that sense only, it seems to be forever and ever.
And that is a very, very long time…
In his gospel, Thomas, of the Nag Hammadi Library, attempted to explain it further. If you’d like to write a review on Amazon, it’s yours for free.

The Enigma of Peter & Paul (Why Immortals have fun).

We might sometimes forget that once we realize that we are immortal there is virtually nothing that can stop us from having fun.  True, we have to pay for our mistakes, but, well, so do all children, don’t they? And in the context of immortality we are all… children. Aren’t we?
As for the transient stay in the physical reality, we have an abundance of choices. Lately, thanks to some scientists, more alternatives are likely to be developed. Who can tell what marvelous biological robots we might be able to choose for our future incarnations?
We often forget that the two functions, which the biblical characters, Peter and Paul, performed more than two thousand years ago, continue to this day. Only today, there is one fundamental difference.
During the Age of Aquarius, the functions take on a very different form. Part of the job that Paul did is now taken over by science, with or without the establishment’s blessing. We are on the verge of creating new means through which the Universal Consciousness can function and experiment.
Let us never forget that you and I, and every animal and every plant or ‘living’ biological and/or zoological construct is only here for this single purpose: to diversify the experiences of the Universal Consciousness. The more different we are, the greater the diversity. The more fun? The more we participate in this eternal experiment, the greater our personal experience and thus happiness. After all, essentially, we are all One—intelligent drops in an endless ocean. 
E pluribus unum, states the Seal of the United States. One out of many. They got that right!

Yet again, in this Age of Aquarius, our participation has taken on a greater form of expression. The man John Craig Venter comes to mind.  He is an American biologist and entrepreneur. He works on providing new elements, perhaps evolutionary mutants, which will lend themselves, in time, to become embodiments for consciousness within the physical realm.
Although our reality is essentially imaginary, after all, we are mostly empty space, nevertheless this reality which is so real to most of us serves to try out new ideas that originate in the Unconscious. Only let us never forget to have fun. After all, we are here, on Earth, only as visitors. Our true realm is elsewhere.
As for Peter’s role, once again, in this new Age, for the first time in human history, the search for the true reality is entrusted to individual men and women. Symbolically, we are to water our own gardens. We are to enrich our own consciousness. On our own.
It sounds as though we are finally Coming of Age.

Some of us knew this a little while ago. All my books deal with Human Potential ( but the book below might help you to become masters of your own destiny. To plant the seeds of success and then sit back and watch them grow. To watch beauty and success grow all around you.

All Debts are ALWAYS paid

Sometime ago I ‘pontificated’ (for which I apologize) about “Thou shalt not kill”. It is true that our glorious leaders—Fühers, Prime Ministers, and Presidents alike, had and continue to studiously ignore this commandment. Well, in one way, they are right.
That’s easy. We cannot kill the immortals. Thus, ‘killing’ a million men’s bodies is a statistic. After all, a good tsunami or a particularly exuberant volcanic eruption could do just as well. As I mentioned before, the physical reality is set on automatic, and we are to fend within its laws as best we can.
The world is an imperfect place, hence the need for evolution. Within the confines of physical reality we must always allow the dead to bury the dead. After all, those who kill others are still dead. Not yet awakened to their true nature. When the killers vacate their bodies, it is as though they hadn’t ‘lived’. They have wasted the only means by which they can build their own heaven: their own indestructible reality—their subconscious. No one can do it for them. “As we sow, so we shall reap”.
Here and forever.
That’s the problem with being immortal. When we finally vacate our physical bodies we look back at what we’ve accomplished. Not in terms of physical achievements, but how we’ve enriched whatever is incorruptible. Those traits that we take with us.
Some of us will just take corpses.

If we were individuals who are independent of each other it wouldn’t matter much. We’d ‘kill’, we’d ‘die’, no harm done. But we are all interconnected. Killing others we kill part of ourselves. Part of what we really are.
The killers—be they brave soldiers, the generals, prime ministers or presidents—don’t realize that we really are immortal. What they accomplish by killing, or giving orders to kill for whatever reason, is to take away from their victims the opportunity to build their own heaven.
However, the Universal Law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Hence the killers, or those who give orders to kill, will lose their own opportunities to build their own heaven. It will be as though they haven’t lived. From the annals of immortality, their names will be erased.
By ‘killing’ others, we can destroy our own future for millions of years to come. And this is not a religious superstition. This is pure science. Why do you think so may of us are born in such dismal circumstances? Just look at millions living for a dollar a day. Look into their past, into past thousands of years… And the worst thing of all is that, in essence, we are all One.  

I hint at the consequences of the Universal Law of Karma in my novel titled Sacha. It is Book Three of my Alexander Trilogy. In fact, you might enjoy all three of them. Alec, Alexander, and Sacha. Downloads are free for reviewers. Let me know.
