The Mystery Experience: A Revolutionary Approach to Spiritual Awakening by Tim Freke [updated Sept 30, 2015]

Prepare for the journey of your life. Literally. This book does not aim to make your life carefree, to make your problems disappear, to turn you into a saint free from blemish or blame. In fact, you may end up utterly bewildered by The Mystery Experience at times. But you will also be intrigued. Curious.Questioning. Loving. Loved. Overjoyed. Seduced out of the numbness of banality. And most importantly, awake. Gloriously awake, and full of wonder.

Philosopher and author Tim Freke leads us on a journey through the nature of the ‘Mystery Experience’, via quantum physics, Gnosticism, the essence of Tao, meditation, Walt Whitman, Greek mythology, Buddhism, Dub Punk musician Jah Wobble, and Carl Jung. But what is the ‘Mystery Experience’? You can taste it by simply focusing your attention on the mystery. But what is the mystery? The mystery is life. The mystery is the journey. The mystery is you. The mystery is me. The mystery makes you want to say, simply: WOW. No one has the answers, but asking the questions is what makes us come alive.

Wherever you’re coming from, you will find this journey rewarding. The only real requirement is that you’re willing to wonder about life … to be curious and open … to be an explorer. Now prepare to leave base camp, because we’re about to set off on a grand adventure.

Tim Freke has spent his life exploring the ‘Mystery Experience’ and sharing it with others. He has an honours degree in Philosophy and is an internationally respected authority on world spirituality. He is often featured in documentaries and interviewed by the global media, such as the BBC and the History Channel. He is the founder of the Alliance for Lucid Living (ALL) and author of more than 30 books that have established his reputation as a scholar and free-thinker. He co-authored the acclaimed The Jesus Mysteries, which was a Daily Telegraph ‘Book of the Year’ and a Top 10 bestseller in the UK and USA and his book Jesus and the Lost Goddess was cited by Dan Brown as an inspiration for The Da Vinci Code.

Nigel Hamilton: ‘A Sufi Perspective: The role of dreams during the process of spiritual transformation’ [Updated Jan 8, 2014]

The Sufi Perspective on the use of dreams following a psycho-spiritual transformation process

Nigel Hamilton is the director of the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, a Transpersonal Psychotherapy Training Centre and Clinic in London, where he lectures and practices as a Psychotherapist; UK representative for the Sufi Order International: originally trained as a Physicist, working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for the use of light in Energy Storage Research.

The use of dreams as a tool for motivating the process of a person’s psycho-spiritual transformation is discussed. Traditional descriptions of such a process in Sufism have been poetic (Faraddin Attar) or esoteric (Ib’n Arabi). This paper looks at the dreams recorded during a profound psycho-spiritual transformation process from a Sufi perspective, using a phenomenological method to describe the “leaps in consciousness” that the Sufis refer to in their literature.
The results of a quantitative analysis of the frequency of occurrence of colours and light in this person’s dreams are also presented, compared and contrasted with the descriptions of the process found in the Sufi literature and the phenomenological analysis. The use of such research methods shows that dreams do indeed reflect the profound changes in consciousness, and that these changes take place in a “step-wise” manner.
This paper is a fresh look at a phenomenon that, if taken seriously, could have important consequences for our assumptions about the potential and limits of rational thinking. For example, there may be other realms of human experience, universes or planes of consciousness, which our modern civilisation has yet to explore and harness

The Mindful Addict: A Memoir of the Awakening of a Spirit by Tom Catton

The enlightening and worldly journeys of a once hopeless addict whose life was profoundly changed after a chance meeting with a nomadic spiritual healer.

The Mindful Addict is the life story of a once hopeless addict. The story starts out in the mid 60’s and arrives in the present day 21st Century. The reader will travel through the pages of a life on a global and at times supernatural voyage that was transformed through grace. An almost magic quality is found in this true life adventure. Miracles will be obvious as the story unfolds. Readers will identify with the all to normal struggles we all go through, yet in this book we find and see how we can transcend the challenges and find a life that is fulfilling beyond our imagination.

This is not a how to book on the 12 step programs or on Buddhism, but rather a book full of real situations that all people have and will go through. This is not another book on addiction and the nightmares of it; this book takes us beyond that, showing that the seemingly hopeless disease of addiction can be an enlightening dilemma, and for some quite possibly a misunderstood gift, a blessing in disguise.

Tom Catton: Tom Catton has been in long-term recovery for thirty-nine years. His story appears in a twelve-step fellowship text with more than seven million copies in circulation around the world. Tom is invited to speak in the US and internationally several times a year at twelve-step conventions in front of audiences ranging from 500 to 10,000 people. He has been taking twelve-step meetings into the prison system in Hawaii since 1984. He has been active in service positions over the years, including serving on a committee that met for over three years to write a recovery text for a twelve-step fellowship. Tom is on the advisory board of the Buddhist Recovery Network, and is also trained in Tibetan singing bowl therapy. He leads a Buddhist recovery meditation group that meets twice a month in Hawaii.

Cyclical Meritorious – Dispensation from Meteor Showers

The Pluvilis Meteorum Beatis

Great people are meteors designed to burn so that the earth may be lighted. ~Napoloeon Bonaparte
The Nature of Meteor Showers

Meteor showers are events that have provoked human curiosity since the beginning of mankind, and this is evidenced by the many records and stories that make reference to specific meteor showers through time. The earliest record of the Perseids Showers, for example, dates from the year 36 AD, made by Chinese astronomers. The Leonid meteor shower has been more intense in recent centuries, and is responsible for many events which were surprised by the amount of meteors observed.

A Meteor Shower is an event in which a group of meteors are seen radiating from a single point in the cosmos and entering the Earth’s atmosphere at very high speed. As our planet journeys through the infinite ocean of the heavenly skies during its translation movements, its orbit intercepts debris, which become meteors. A meteor shower is usually the result of interactions between a planet like the Earth, and the trail of debris produced by a comet or asteroid. Usually the comet material is detached from its orbit naturally, or when Earth crosses their orbit, its gravitational force attracts these particles into its atmosphere.

Most meteors are generally smaller than grain of sand and therefore almost always disintegrate and do not reach the surface of the planet. Heavy and unusual meteors are also known outbreaks or meteor storms, which are seen at a rate of more than a thousand meteors per hour.

“The rude sea grew civil at her song, And certain stars shot madly from their spheres To hear the sea-maid’s music.” ~William Shakespeare
The orbits of debris are approximately elliptical, with the Sun at one focus. As the distance of the debris from the Sun is in general very large, the curvature is small and the trajectories can be considered approximately parallel.

The fragments are usually entering the atmosphere at high speed and combust, forming the so-called shooting stars or fallen stars. Meteor showers are annual periodic phenomena. The best known are the intense Leonidas and Perseids.

Any planet in the solar system with a reasonably transparent atmosphere can experience a meteor shower. Mars is known to have meteor showers that occur with different intensity and very distinct characteristics as of from Earth.

Cyclical Meritorious Dispensation from Meteor Showers

Esoterically, the meteor showers function as a temporary immersion of very specific energies originating from massive cosmic archetypes, such as the planets, constellations, comets and from inter-planetary regions of the solar system space.

The decoding of these showering elements can be easily found in mankind’s tales and ancient mythology. They are personifications of the original adamantine evolutionary templates and withhold characteristics that facilitate the understanding of our cosmic multidimensionality. These traveling energies, such any other cosmic event, bear influence in our common lives on this planet and influence how we progress as a race; as they represent the opening of windows of opportunities to facilitate the soul growth and soul works, especially from star-seeded souls.

Meteor Showers have a similar effect as the changing phases of the moon, but their influences are broader than the lunar, which concentrate specifically on the frequencies of the emotional field and astral bodies. The shower’s reach a broader spectrum as it can influence and trigger different levels of our subtle bodies systems.

Adamantine Templates

In ancient times, the rehearsal and dramatization of myths and legends were used as instruments for the initiate immersion in some of the intrinsic dynamics of the spiritual and multidimensional realities. Through the experience of these patterns, the seeker was able to expand their circle of reality, fulfilling the prerequisites of understanding and different perspectives that allowed him to capture all the diamond facets of human and trans-human experiences. The olden calendar of initiation also captured the power influence of the meteor showers, which, at the time, were considered temporary dispensations of meritorious grace that originated from the great Constellations of the ancient times.

Nevertheless, we must say that the influence of these showers can be perceived as an attempt to entrain and to merge two dimensions of time into the human template; one tri-dimensional, chronological and finite in nature; and the other, cosmic, transcendent, archetypical, and eternal in nature. One regulates the primary functions of our dualistic reality and the other adjusts the everlasting evolutionary movement of the soul.

These non-local energies stimulate certain aspects of our soul advancement and can greatly improve the internal and expansive spiritual work, through immersion in meritorious dispensations. Each one of these dispensations carries lessons and challenges that integrate new patterns and elements that amplify the reach of our ever-expanding consciousness and awareness.

Meteor Showers are powerful tools that open windows of opportunity for transcendence, as they briefly evoke, through the soaking into inner archetypal experiences, the release of Samaskaric elements of our nature, such as old fears, old belief systems and holographic karmic memories that are no longer valid as a geometric pattern in our stage of reality. Along with the rhythm of the Stellar Codes, the Pluvilis Meteorum Beatis or Meteor Showers Dispensations are valuable tools that can be assimilated and integrated into our energetic template, allowing the shift of perspective through the access of a unique reservoir of experiences that transcends the human spectrum of existence.

Antonio Damasio: The quest to understand consciousness

Every morning we wake up and regain consciousness — that is a marvelous fact — but what exactly is it that we regain? Neuroscientist Antonio Damasio uses this simple question to give us a glimpse into how our brains create our sense of self.

Antonio Damasio’s research in neuroscience has shown that emotions play a central role in social cognition and decision-making. His work has had a major influence on current understanding of the neural systems, which underlie memory, language, consciousness.

Awakening Signs ~ by freeyourmind4evr

More Awakening Signs include:

-A feeling that something has changed within you

You simply feel different, you may not look any different but you know something has changed internally. Your old ways are falling by the wayside and the real you is starting to emerge.

-An increase in occurrences of coincidence

Better known as synchronicity, favourable people and beneficial circumstance start to appear with exactly what you need. Answers to questions are revealed to you through signs and messages. Synchronicity is a sign you are on the right track and that you are aware of these miracles happening around you. The more you notice and take heed, the more they appear so show appreciation for the guidance you are receiving.

-Quicker manifestations

Spiritual awakening raises your vibration; this involves a release of blockages which allows abundance to flow to you. Being in alignment with a higher vibration results in quicker and more beneficial manifestations to be received by you. Be aware of your thoughts so you get what you really want or better.

-Paying more attention to the details of daily life

-A desire to enroll in a classroom of “higher” learning

-Seeking new friends and groups who are interested in the Integrated life of the spirit (meaning balance in mind-body-spirit)

-Going to new places and moving outside of your comfort zone

For many of you, this is allowing yourself to ask questions in groups, to talk to “strangers” and to let go of your fears of looking uninformed in front of others.

-Sense of your own power to create with thought, words, and actions

-A feeling that you are somehow different, with new skills and gifts emerging, especially healing ones.

-Increased integrity

You realize that it is time for you to seek and speak your truth.

-A knowing sense of connectedness / Oneness

You have an abiding knowing from within of the intrinsic inter-relatedness of everything, both living and non-living. You have a sense that now your life is a living manifestation of this Truth, and that you are It — as are all people

The Next Human: A Guide to Personal and Collective Evolution ~ Jason Lincoln Jeffers

Everything in nature evolves. This process is usually slow, taking millions of years. But every couple hundred millennia or so, an entire species takes a giant leap forward. Currently, 17,500 nuclear warheads on Planet Earth are considered operational and at least 4,000 of them are on hair-trigger alert. The nations of North Korea and Iran are scrambling to add their own warheads to the list. The human race now has but one option for world peace: evolution.

As we venture beyond the end of the Mayan Calendar at the end of 2012, a small percentage of humanity is evolving from an egoic, codependent, emotionally violent, self-destructive state of suffering into a heart-centered, egoless, Self-reliant, creative state of being. Ethereally connected to Gaia, Mother Earth, this burgeoning, spiritually enlightened, highly intuitive, and compassionate species of humanity will actualize the protective and balancing nature of the sacred feminine.

Ultimately, there is no way out of these current problems that we face together, only a way through. The way begins and ends with the personal evolution of the Self. Non-conformity to the current system of control through peaceful, spiritual revolution, both individually and collectively, is what is needed now if we are going to move beyond the social injustice, oppression, pollution, poverty, famine, and incessant wars that pervade our planet. As we learn to honor the body’s divine intelligence, an entirely new system of drug-free health care will emerge, as opposed to the disease care model that exists today. The time has come for us to look to solutions from higher levels of intelligence, higher levels of consciousness. Now is the time for us to draw a line in the sand and stand up for our divine Selves, to stop playing the victim as a species.

Your evolutionary journey begins and ends with Self-mastery, through the transformation of the Seven Selves. When you change your “little me who means nothing to the universe” perspective to an “I am the center of all creation” perspective, your whole existence and reason for living transforms. You awaken to your relevance, your significance, your duty to life, and you realize that the universe cannot evolve until you do.

Jason Lincoln Jeffers is a spiritual teacher, life and wellness coach, mystical artist, astrologer, metaphysicist, entrepreneur, author, and self-taught authority on transpersonal psychology and alternative medicine. His mission is to help humanity awaken to its divinity, access its untouched free will, and evolve into the Next Human.

Jason Lincoln Jeffers: You Are Who You Attract – It’s the Law.

Author of “The Next Human – A Guide to Personal and Collective Evolution,” Jason Lincoln Jeffers explains how you are who you attract in relationships; your Mirror Self.

Jason Lincoln Jeffers – All Problems are Ego-Generated.

Life is meant to be enjoyed, not endured. If you’re playing the victim to life, then you’ve already given up on life, and have declared that God, the devil, the universe, karma, or some mysterious “force” greater than yourself is somehow in control of your life, is the cause behind your suffering, and is for some unknown reason punishing you. In a way, you’ve succumbed to this force that, in reality, does not exist. Victimization is the ego’s way of attracting the spotlight back onto itself. It is unconsciously played out for the sole purpose of extracting power guised as attention and sympathy from others.

If you’re playing the victim, what you subconsciously fear the most is what you usually end up attracting to you. A dark cloud seems to follow you around wherever you go, and you’ll constantly be running into obstacles around every turn. Life seems to be a desperate attempt at solving one annoying problem after another, and this never-ending onslaught eventually takes its toll on your health, causing you to become addicted to food, or alcohol, or drugs, or you just become chronically ill. And the more you fight this horrifying reality that the universe inflicts problems on you, the more tragic life becomes.

When you play the victim, you won’t be exercising any free will at all. Zero. People take advantage of you. No, it’s worse; they walk all over you. From the perspective of the Next Human, victimization is artificially constructed from the reactive, resistant, reality-ignoring, presence-dodging, drama-creating, life-battling, egoic mind. To the ego, life is nothing less than an ongoing pummel of problems that must be solved and counted. But all these problems are nothing more than an outer reflection of the chaos within. They’re also energy for the ego to feed on. Over time, problems and conflicts become a necessity for the ego to sustain itself. Drama is drummed up so the ego can become the center of attention on the world stage.

If you’re ready to stop playing the victim to life, then you must first learn to stop creating your own problems out of simple challenges. Don’t put your challenges on the back burner and ignore them, hoping they’ll magically disappear on their own, because they won’t. The challenges will dissolve, one by one, but you have to give them the attention they deserve. It’s called presence. Otherwise they’ll keep coming back and situations will keep getting worse until you begin paying attention. The key is staying focused in the Now.

Jason Lincoln Jeffers – The Phantom Attack

A parasite of pain.
Just below the threshold of consciousness lies an opposite, a negative, a hidden self. The eminent psychologist Carl Gustav Jung believed that this negative self or shadow was created during ego development in childhood, when we are at some point deemed worthless, inferior, unacceptable, or inadequate. Subsequently, the pain from our wounded ego manifests as a cover-up process to prove to others that we are not these terrifying things. When we don’t want to face these feelings about ourselves, we project them onto others by way of moral deficiency. In his book, Aion, Jung sums up the shadow by writing, “Projections change the world into the replica of one’s own unknown face.”

This shadow of the ego also manifests in every human as an emotional body, energy field, and no doubt DNA encoding. Because every thought you have is a simple form of energy, when toxic, negative thoughts are allowed to accumulate, they fester, ferment, and become emotional in nature. If ignored or denied over time, these darker emotions tend to cling to our psyche and become tar-like and parasitical. The more your ego represses these primitive thoughts and feelings, the darker and denser they become. Left unresolved, these fear-based emotions inevitably manifest as anxiety, depression, disgust, hatred, anger, and rage. In the dungeons of the subconscious mind, these repugnant aspects of the psyche actually feed on emotional pain. Alternately masochistic and sadistic, this pain parasite preys on human hosts.

Jung viewed his collective unconscious as a secondary psyche, consisting of archetypes and imagery that were impersonal in nature and concurrent in all individuals. Conversely, a primary psyche was defined by Jung’s personal unconscious which stored our individual memories, repressed fears, and the dark shadows of unresolved pain. Contemporary spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle also believes in this “dark shadow cast by the ego,” which he refers to as the pain-body in his book The Power of Now.

​Like Tolle, I see the pain-body as a synthesis of personal pain that we unknowingly conceal from others based on our individualized repressions and a collective pain that resides within the energy field of a hive mind. I also view the pain-body as a psychic parasite and as a physical manifestation of the mental ego. The more you are identified with your emotions, the more they become a prominent part of the physical body.

The phantom predator.
An aggressive pain-body or “phantom predator” will prefer a violent argument over a civil discussion any day of the week, and will frequently become opinionated during a peaceful conversation just so it can stir up some debate, drama, or discord. The emotional charge that it reaps from the ensuing drama is pure energy for this pain parasite to feed on. In a discussion, it’s not the truth it seeks, but rather the energy harvested from wronging others while pushing all of their buttons. Bullies or super dense aggressive pain-bodies who thrive on hurting people both emotionally and physically are unconscious carriers of this psychic parasite. These predator pain-bodies are attracted to emotional and physical violence displayed in TV shows, video games, and movies.

You can recognize an aggressive pain-body simply by looking deeply into the eyes of its host. His or her voice may have a condescending tone to it and he or she will usually be deriding someone or something. These hosts are impatiently waiting for an excuse, any excuse, to provoke an argument so that they can sap your energy and feed on your anger. The conversation might begin with them probing for information about you, hoping they can find something with which to diminish you later on. Because the pain-body is deeply rooted in polarity, they’ll frequently bring up a topic such as religion or politics so they can take create an argument out of it and then take up the opposite side.

When the aggressive pain-body becomes active in you, it will quickly consume your mind until you are one with it. Your entire thought process and sense of self will be completely aligned with its agenda. The phantom will have taken over you, your speech, your sight, your perception, and most vital for it, your dark emotions. This is when you become your phantom self. The true you has “left the building.” And at that very moment, at the time of consumption, the last thing in the world you want is to be at peace. You want war. So what do you do? You go looking for trouble.

If you came upon a wise old sage when you were consumed by an aggressive pain-body and he said to you, “There is such a thing as life without pain,” you’d probably kick his teeth out. This is because the sage would not be talking to you, he would be talking to the phantom. Remember, you’re long gone. People possessed by aggressive pain-bodies want you to be angry with them; they want to provoke an attack from you. Their motto is “Bring it on!” These are people who become so completely consumed by their pain-bodies that they temporarily transform into the phantom self. This is what I refer to as a “phantom attack.” They are the rabble rousers, always looking for a fight, and they’ll enjoy making fun of you in front of others, the more public the better. If they can somehow humiliate you, they know there’s a good chance your pain will swell. And if your pain swells, they can feed on it. You won’t even have to utter a single word–––the energy of your emotional reaction alone will be enough to sustain it.
The phantom prey.
For every number of phantom predators there is a phantom who does not attack others overtly. Instead, they suppress their pain and keep it hidden. I call these passive pain-bodies or “phantom prey.” Because they seldom release their pain outwardly like aggressive pain-bodies, a good number of these individuals are in pain most, if not all, the time. Over the years, the passive pain-body festers, suppressing the host body’s immune system, and chronic anxiety or depression turns into a physical disease such as: cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, type 2 diabetes, Crohn’s disease, recurring migraines, chronic muscle and joint pain, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, systemic candida, and other chronic pain diseases. Often it forces the host to turn to substance abuse, addiction to prescription drugs, or food addiction to escape their chronic emotional pain.

One of the most common reasons people begin a path toward spiritual transformation is to cope with their emotional and/or physical suffering. It can be from an acute or chronic disease, an ongoing addiction to drugs or alcohol, or chronic emotional anxiety brought on from stress at work or a failing relationship. Most likely they come to the end of the same road over and over again until they have an epiphany that affirms, “What I’ve been doing is simply not working. The time has come for me to change my ways.”

If you possess the courage to heal, pain-body counseling works if you have the patience, desire, and dedication to stay on the path. Many times, people will make great strides but then fall back onto their old self-destructive patterns. The key is not giving up. If you fall, pick yourself up and get back into counseling. Faith, persistence, and a belief that you don’t deserve to suffer can get you over the hump and past your chronic pain.

Since we as a species are preconditioned to believe that life is supposed to be a constant state of suffering, that we all have our “crosses to bear,” and that we must “pay our dues,” then that will be the inevitable outcome. Whatever you identify with and believe with emotion will manifest as your reality. If you didn’t define yourself through misery and suffering, it simply wouldn’t happen. Yes, you are that powerful. To transcend suffering, what is required is a coming to consciousness that you don’t need to play the martyr anymore. It’s simply not your job to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Just because you’re in this world doesn’t mean that you have to be of it.

CONSCIOUSNESS : Bridging the Gap Between Conventional Science and the New Super Science of Quantum Mechanics ~ Eva Herr

This extraordinary book is concerned with the questions:

>Does the presence of sensate awareness, cognitive awareness, and self-awareness or all of them combined assure that consciousness is active?

>Are these attributes of consciousness? Are they signifiers of consciousness?

> What is the nature of consciousness; do we have free will; what are the differences between mind and brain, energy and physical objects, and the body and the soul?

Eva Herr is seeking answers to the intriguing questions most of us know little about. Each person Eva interviews reveals the importance, as well as the necessity, of paying attention to our subjective, inner experiences in order to more effectively relate and interact with the present world in which we live. Every one of the scholars interviewed by Eva offer us a new understanding, as well as a more hopeful understanding of human and cosmic reality at its most fundamental level.

Based on interviews with visionary scientists, philosophers, physicists, and critical thinkers, this book takes its readers on an exciting journey of discovery.

Eva Herr examines the nature of consciousness; the differences between the mind and the brain, the body and the soul, and energy and physical objects; and much, much more. Throughout, her goal is to enhance our understanding of human and cosmic reality so that we can more effectively interact with the world in which we live.

Eva Herr is one of the world’s luminaries on the topics of alternative medicine and the science of consciousness. She stands out with her no-nonsense, factual interviews and her deep understanding of what she is discussing. She became a popular talk show hostess on BBS Radio’s “Infinite Consciousness,” which gave her the opportunity to engage the minds of today’s top thinkers in the fields of alternative medicine, science, consciousness, and our human experience. She is the author of Agape, The Intent of the Soul.

The Visionary Window: A Quantum Physicist’s Guide to Enlightenment by Amit Goswami, Deepak Chopra (Foreword)-[Video Interview]

Book Launching and signing ceremony of Dr. Goswami’s Physics of the Soul at the New York Open Center.

I was fortunate to meet Dr. Goswami at the New York Open Center some years back in conjunction with the launching and signing ceremony of his book ” PHYSICS of the SOUL: The Quantum Book of Living, Dying, Reincarnation, and Immortality”

Dr. Goswami, Ph.D. is an internationally renowned retired professor from the theoretical physics department of the University of Oregon in Eugene, where he had served since 1968. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness”.

Dr. Goswami is the author of the highly successful textbook Quantum Mechanics that is used in Universities throughout the world. His two volume textbook for nonscientists, The Physicist’s View of Nature traces the decline and rediscovery of the concept of God within science.

Dr. Goswami has also written many popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness. In his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, he solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect while paving the path to a new paradigm of science based on the primacy of consciousness.

Subsequently, in ” The Visionary Window : A Quantum Physicist’s Guide to Enlightenment” Preview Here Goswami demonstrated how science and spirituality could be integrated. In Physics of the Soul he developed a theory of survival after death and reincarnation. His book Quantum Creativity is a tour de force instruction about how to engage in both outer and inner creativity. The Quantum Doctor integrates conventional and alternative medicine.

In his private life, Dr. Goswami is a practitioner of spirituality and transformation. He calls himself a quantum activist. He appeared in the film“What the Bleep Do We Know“, “The Dalai Lama Renaissance“, and the award winning documentary “The Quantum Activist“.

Does God exist? Can spirituality be integrated with science? Is happiness possible? Do miracles really happen? Not only does The Visionary Window answer ” yes” to all of these questions, but it skillfully combines the fields of philosophy, cosmology, religion, and psychology to form a new way of thinking about science and spirituality.

Stepping beyond the classic work of prominent seventies physicist Fritjof Capra, Goswami details his own pioneering exploration of science and spirit, revealing the complete integration between modern science and spiritual traditions. Using stories and colorful examples from pop culture, Goswami addresses complex issues in language and terminology easily accessible to the lay reader. He provides quantum physics-based theory and new experimental data verifying the metaphysical truth that exists when employed in the context of a new science, science within the primacy of consciousness.

With a new holistic worldview, Goswami also discusses the creativity of the body to self heal; the power of spiritual practice and how to choose a meditative path; and the five stages of spiritual growth, culminating in the ability to transcend the physical laws of nature. Readers, scientists and spiritual leaders alike will find answers to many of life’s deepest mysteries.

Getting Fearless about Death and Dying

For most people, death and dying as a topic of conversation is reserved for when someone they know or love is, well, dying. I find it more effective and less fear-inducing to start exploring your thoughts, feelings, and fears about this inevitable topic before circumstances demand it.

As a psychotherapist for over 15 years, I can honestly say that fear of death and dying is one of the top five fears clients present. Some of the most common forms of this fear are fear of losing your parents, fear of something happening to your children, and fear of your own mortality.

I want you to take a moment to ask yourself: How fearless are you about death? How much have you explored this topic? By “fearless about death,” I am not suggesting skydiving, bungee jumping, or engaging in death-defying acts (pun intended) to prove your fearlessness. I am using the idea of being fearless about death as a way to let your fear inform you but not dominate you.

In exploring these feelings, I am going to ask you the same question I ask my clients: What do you think happens when you die?

I refer to dying as “transitioning,” which reflects my beliefs. It irks my sister Kathy, who responds, “It’s not ‘transitioning,’ Terri; it’s dying. Please just say ‘dying'” — which reflects her beliefs. So the question is, what do you think happens when and after you die?

I started my journey of exploring this topic in my 20s. Although I was raised Presbyterian, there was no organized religion that resonated as truthful for me when it came to the question of what happens when we die. My oldest sister, Tammi, almost died in a car accident when I was 23, which brought the idea of death closer than it had ever been. Now, this same beloved sister, wife, and mother of four has liver cancer and needs a transplant as soon as possible. The work I have done around death and dying affords me the ability to do what is in my power to do — to help raise money for uncovered, immense expenses, while keeping an open, loving dialogue with her. I truly believe that what is right and perfect for her journey is what will happen. I accept that I do not know what that is. But I do know what my earthly heart desires — which is about another 40 years together — so I will do anything I can to expand that possibility.

One of the first books I read on this quest for understanding death was Conversations with God, by Neale Donald Walsch, which felt like reading what I already knew. The possibility that we live more than once on this planet, learning what our souls need to learn while spreading as much kindness as humanly possible, resonates with me.

I also studied with Dr. Brian Weiss and was extremely influenced by his book Many Lives, Many Masters.

Experiencing the death of my father within three months of my own cancer diagnosis really accelerated my deep dive into my personal feelings and fears about death. My beliefs continued to take shape as my involvement with the cancer community expanded and my work with near-death-experience clients increased. I just finished a thought-provoking book about a near-death experience by Anita Moorjani, Dying To Be Me,View her Video and Book Review here which really intrigued me. Also, studying with Dr. Deepak Chopra profoundly informed my personal belief system about what happens next.

As with my clients, I encourage you to go on your own journey. I have shared with you a small piece of my truth, having no idea or judgment about yours. To gain clarity, start reading and talking to people about spirituality, death, and dying. I encourage you to question your downloaded blueprints from your childhood and family culture so that your truth can emerge.

It does not matter how old you are or what your state of health is, death is a part of your life right now, this minute. You do not have to wait until you are diagnosed with an illness, become elderly, or have someone in your life die before you figure out your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. This is such a rich opportunity for self-discovery that many let pass, unexplored, because of fear. By facing your feelings about death and dying, you normalize the experience, releasing much of the fear.

I would love to read your thoughts, so I encourage you to answer the questions I’ve posed in the comment section of the video, and/or share your thoughts on what being fearless around death and dying means to you.

CHANGE YOUR LIFE, CHANGE YOUR WORLD Ten Spiritual Lessons for a New Way of Being and Living ~ Amoda Maa Jeevan

“Your real job – like mine and everyone else’s – is to go inside and awaken
in order to serve the world with the fragrance of your essential love-nature. When doing is rooted in the essence of being then real change can happen.
It’s called awakened action, and it’s the pinnacle of becoming an Agent of Change.”

In this inspiring new book, Amoda shares a collective vision that offers us a road-map through tough times. The Ten Spiritual Lessons held within this vision show us how to walk through the darkness of fear, doubt, uncertainty, and pain towards the light of our true inner radiance. This light has the power to transform our lives from suffering to joy, and the power to transform our world from terror to peace. Each of these Ten Lessons is a very real action you can take to activate a specific quality of an “inner spiritual muscle” that – when applied over and over again – creates inner and outer change.

Each Lesson includes a Daily Declaration, a Call to Action and a Self-Reflection Exercise, as well as blank Journal Pages. This is, ultimately, a spiritual workbook and the practical application of the teachings in each chapter is vital for the embodiment of the insights offered.

Whether you are experiencing personal pain and hardship or whether you are faced with the increasing challenges of today’s turbulent world, the invitation in this book is to awaken to the truth of your radiant nature and thereby to shift from the myopic perspective of ego to the clarity of vision offered by an unbounded heart. Should you take up the invitation, you will be empowered to live from your greatness and to play your rightful role in the evolutionary shift of our times. And there is truly nothing more exciting or more vital than this today!

The book includes a Foreword by John Selby, Best-selling Author and Psychologist.

10 Spiritual Lessons for a New World By Amoda Maa Jeevan

Amidst intensely turbulent times, so many of us today are feeling the urgent call to make changes that will create a brighter future for us all. Yet, however much we may want to save the world or fix what’s wrong, the truth remains that we can only change the world by changing ourselves. Inner transformation is the key to outer change.

Only by having the courage to walk through the darkness of fear, doubt and uncertainty towards the light of our true inner radiance can we transform our lives from suffering to joy and can we transform our world from terror to peace. The activation of this inner light is a radical shift in consciousness that awakens us to the miracle of our own power. It’s a shift from seeing through the myopic lens of ego to seeing through the unbounded clarity of an open heart.

This shift gives birth to a new way of being that is expressed through awakened action. When doing arises from our infinite nature it has a very different quality to when doing is a result of small-minded beliefs. The former is in harmony with the symphony of the cosmos, because the cosmos is infinite in nature. The latter creates dissonance and disharmony, because ego opposes the flow of life. Real positive inner and outer change can only happen when there is a congruency between our state of consciousness and the nature of Existence.

In 2002, I received a vision that revealed ten spiritual lessons that evolve us out of the old paradigm of separation into a new paradigm of unity. In practicing these lessons daily, we exercise an inner muscle that activates our capacity to become agents of change in our lives and in the world. Each lesson awakens a specific quality within us, and when all ten are put together, there is a radically new relationship to everything.

Essentially, the ten lessons are about taking responsibility for our own evolutionary growth because only an awakened being can bring light to the world and be an effective agent of change. As we stand on the brink of a monumentally pregnant moment in the history of humanity, my invitation is that you join the inner revolution that can give birth to a radically new you and a radically new world.

A brief outline of the Ten Spiritual Lessons:

Speaking from the Heart with Anadi is Amoda Maa Jeevan. Amoda talks about her new book, Change your life Change your world, and her work as a spiritual teacher. Amoda beautifully describes her ‘spiritual awakening’; a very inspiring story.

Lesson 1 – Responsibility
To recognize that we are solely responsible for both our happiness and our unhappiness transforms our internal paradigm from victim-consciousness to becoming a master of our inner world. The power to make a conscious choice in how we respond to life is the foundation for the flowering of a new consciousness.

Lesson 2 – Clarity
To recognize that the world we experience is a reflection of our inner world gives birth to awareness. Awareness has the power to dissolve all story-lines of blame, shame and pain and allows us to rest in the truth of what is really here. This clarity erases inner and outer conflict and sows the seeds for true peace in the world.

Lesson 3 – Relaxation
The more deeply we relax and allow life to unfold in its depth and breadth, the more we are nourished. Taking action from a place of deep relaxation is far more powerful than acting from inner resistance. The former leads to aliveness, the joy of being and a world of creative possibilities, the latter leads to stress, disharmony and disease.

Lesson 4 – Presence
The capacity to penetrate this moment with the depth of our presence cuts through ghosts of past-fear and fantasies of future-hope. In the discovery of what remains, we are granted the power of knowing ourselves as the eternal, infinite space within which everything else comes and goes. This knowing-ness is the key to our true power.

Lesson 5 – Totality
By opening wide to welcome every experience, however painful or challenging, we say YES and become a lover of life. To meet everything with totality offers the potential for deep intimacy that lifts us out of survival-based fear into the arms of unbounded love. This is the birth of compassion, both for ourselves and for the world.

Lesson 6 – Gratitude
Digging deep to find gratitude for even those things we would rather cast out from our lives sends an arrow of love right into the heart of darkness. It’s far more powerful than denial or hate. Gratitude shines a light on the true riches of our inner nature. What we’ve been looking for outside of ourselves has been right here in our hearts all along.

Lesson 7 – Forgiveness
Forgiveness isn’t about turning the other cheek and allowing abuse to continue. It’s about choosing to see through unconscious actions to the purity of essence at the core of every human being. Inherently, there is no evil: the darkness we perceive is only a reflection of where we have failed to illuminate the world with our love. Our capacity to forgive heals the wound of separation and returns us and the world to wholeness and holiness.

Lesson 8 – Nakedness
The courage to be seen, warts and all, allows authentic relationship to happen. In the willingness to be hurt, to face the fear and to experience honestly what lies beneath, we see that love is always here, whatever form it takes. A world built on authenticity is a convergence of hearts in which we herald in a radically new way of life.

Lesson 9 – Service
The new evolutionary impulse coming through humanity today demands that we make the transition from taking to giving. It’s not about doing good but it is about serving God. It’s the call to step beyond our comfort zone into our greatness so that we play our rightful role within Divine Plan. It’s about awakening to our essential love-nature and then serving the world with the fragrance of this love.

Lesson 10 – Resoluteness
The unwavering resolve to take one step at a time, whether we walk over mountain peaks or through valley lows, guarantees that our inner radiance is never extinguished. Action fuelled by the motivation to be a beacon of light unto ourselves and unto the world is the mark of a true agent of change.
