Karstein Bjastad
left his career with an American bank in the City of London of more than ten years to become a stay-at-home dad.
Following this bold move Karstein had his spiritual interests re-kindled. His spiritual quest led him to A Course in Miracles, which is a non-dualistic spiritual teaching.
The application of the A Course in Miracles teaching has become Karstein’s life passion, and one of his aims is to share his passion with others, largely through making available practical and easy-to-understand information about non-dualistic spirituality and how to achieve peace of mind.
Karstein connected with the inspiration for The Naked Truth and wrote the book while he lived in the US, and has since returned to his native Norway where he lives with his wife and two daughters.

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE UNIVERSE – by Gary R. Renard [Updated Aug 17, 2015]

Straight Talk About Illusions, Past Lives, Religion,
Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness

by Gary R. Renard
What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple suddenly appeared from out of nowhere, and then told you they were ‘ascended masters’ who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous power of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza? When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them. (And ask a lot of questions.) The result is this startling book: An extraordinary record of 17 mind-bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author’s life, and giving the world an uncompromising introduction to a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.
