Publication Date: This book is dedicated to your mastery of the art of realizing all your desires. The greatest gift you have been given is the gift of your imagination.
Everything that now exists was once imagined. And everything that will ever exist must first be imagined. You might conceptualize this former spark as a sacred light inside of your head that is the same size as your brain. This new brain is comprised exclusively of infinite God energy.
Yet I ask you to study this ancient spiritual teaching, which is designed to familiarize you with a radical idea about the powers you possess just by the fact that you are a living, breathing human being.
If you are committed to accessing your higher consciousness, then you must be willing to do what is required in order to integrate what this great initiatic teacher is offering. In order to accomplish becoming an almighty being, your higher self God must be enlarged from a spark to a more meaningful portion of your essence. There is nothing that this higher self that I am cannot accomplish. All things are possible leaves nothing out.
As my teachers in the initiatic sciences frequently reminded me, this higher self— that portion of God that is us—only begins to notice us and give us the attention we crave when we enlarge it from a tiny spark and invite the energy into our life. You can tell yourself with genuine knowing, I am perfect. All forms of I am have tremendous significance, as you will learn when you delve into the next chapter on your highest self.
In this chapter you are discovering your higher self. God no longer resides outside of you, and no longer plays favorites. A god who knows how to heal yet withholds healing from some and offers it to others who are presumed to have paid some kind of dues?
A god who is angry? A god who demands to be paid for services, with fancy temples and gold-lined costumes for his highest representatives? This is a god of the ego. Your higher self is a piece of an all-loving, all-embracing creative Source. All you need do is accept that this is not something external to yourself. This is the true essence of living a life in which your wishes are fulfilled. Give your Divine nature a chance.
The second part of this book provides a step-by-step plan for allowing your higher self to take over the process of fulfilling your desires. In these opening chapters, I hope to jar you into an awareness of how powerful a being you really are when you get past so much of the nonsensical conditioning that has dominated your enculturation. Toss out any self-limiting ideas about your Divine nature and what it is capable of achieving.
Befriend that spark, consult it frequently, nurture it, pay close attention to it, believe in it, and practice describing yourself first as a spiritual being—one who lives as frequently as possible from this all-loving, all-giving, all-joyful place called your higher self. Your higher self is just what it says: It is the part of you that is aligned with your very Source of being.
Not only do you have a lower ego-based false self, as well as a spiritually based higher self that is a piece of God, but you have a highest self.
A self that you have been trained to believe is not something that you should ever claim. Your highest self awaits you in Chapter Three. Three Suggestions — Set aside multiple times during your day to stop and ask yourself this key question: Right now in what I am about to say or do, do my desires stem from my lower or my higher self?
The ego is all about self-serving, ownership, winning, judging, and so on. The higher self is about serving, loving, and being in a nonjudgmental state of peace. Ask yourself this question, and create the opportunity to align yourself more fully with God.
You then have access to the same powers of manifestation as your Source of being. This question, when honestly explored, helps you align with the power to fulfill your wishes and desires.
Give your Divine nature a chance by asking yourself this question. Practice seeing this God-portion of yourself expanding its glow within your mind. See it growing into a personally satisfying size. You will begin acting from this inner God-realized image. I am all-knowing, I am all-powerful, I am unlimited. This helps you banish doubt and refer to this portion of yourself that lives in a spiritual world of no restrictions. You are ridding yourself of ego-dominated mental messages that continue to want to convince you that you are primarily your body and its five senses.
This spark is your spiritual essence—your higher self. As your awareness increases that you are a God-realized being, you will welcome it as the central focus of your life.
The concept of your higher self will gradually evolve into your highest self, which is truly omniscient, almighty, and capable of producing miracles. Here you will see a new reality—a majestic idea of yourself that previously seemed inconceivable. Your highest self is described in the pronouncement in the display quote at the beginning of this chapter, written by Saint Paul in his letters to the Philippians in the New Testament.
Not even close! I am speaking here of the creative Source of all being, a God Who is responsible for creating the miraculous movement from nonbeing to being, a God Who is formless—Who does nothing yet leaves nothing undone—a God Who is everywhere.
This idea is at the basis of all great spiritual teaching throughout all time. Much of organized religious teaching proclaims that God is an all-powerful being outside of you.
That idea has been thrown at you since you were old enough to process this absurd notion. God, you were told, watches you and punishes you if you misbehave, but listens to your prayers and helps you resolve your conflicts if you do the right thing and please Him.
You may find it difficult at first to be able to assert to yourself that I am God. But when you put it into the context of God as love and pure love allows you to be almighty, all-knowing, and God-realized , you will, I assure you, begin to regain the omnipotence that is your essence from the moment of your transition from nonbeing spirit to being human.
I emphasize these teachings of Jesus to show that the declaration of I am God is not only not in opposition to the teachings of Christianity or other spiritual practices, but is fully aligned with these earlier teachings. One of them is Uell S. Andersen, and the book of his that I read, studied, meditated upon, and am now living and teaching is titled Three Magic Words.
The book is pages long, and it was not until the last chapter—after many specific meditations and exercises; after many enlightening words on consciousness, intuition, faith, love, success, immortality, and more; and after investing time and energy in what is being taught by the author—that I discovered what the three magic words actually are. This is the ineffable secret, the ultimate illumination, the key to peace and power: You are God.
If you will accept this towering truth, dare to stand atop this magnificent pinnacle, universal consciousness will be revealed to you from within. God is there.
It is He who peers from behind your eyes, who is your own consciousness, who is your very Self. You are not just a part of God; you are altogether God, and God is altogether you.
This is your highest self. After all, with God as you, and you as God, all things are possible. This is not an assertion limited to Western teachings or the Christian faith.
Before we go any further, I want to share with you some words from my other great spiritual teacher, Neville, regarding this notion of you and me actually being God.
As I mentioned earlier, I devoted a year to studying, meditating on, practicing, and ultimately writing essays on how to apply the wisdom of that tiny little book of 81 verses. Living the Wisdom of the Tao. I have lectured throughout the world on the idea of having our wishes fulfilled via the avenue of assuming the power of God that is not only our birthright, but our very essence.
As I finished the first 26 chapters in my seventh reading of Neville, I heard once again the same holy refrain that U. Andersen offered in his conclusion of Three Magic Words. In all creation, in all eternity, in all the realms of your infinite being the most wonderful fact is that which is stressed in the first chapter of this book.
You are the creator. This is the mystery, this is the great secret known by the seers, prophets, and mystics throughout the ages. This is the truth that you can never know intellectually. It manifests as a feeling of love that is ineffable, and incapable of being known intellectually. The knowledge that your creator is the very self of yourself and never would have made you had he not loved you must fill your heart with devotion, yes, with adoration.
When you realize this preeminent assertion, you regain the power of your Source because you no longer live as if you were estranged from your Source. You see that God manifests in a countless array of forms, and yes, you are one of those sublime forms. They will be extremely helpful in getting you over the hurdle of truly knowing that you are God.
Strangers send me a variety of media to listen to or to read that awakens something within me. This was true as I was preparing myself or possibly being prepared for examining this idea of spiritual wish fulfillment.
The work of Neville kept knocking at my door in a myriad of ways, as did initiatic science and U. How was my council of angelic immortals going to get this information to me, this ancient teaching that I had been almost totally removed from for my entire life? Obviously, we are all in this thing together. Your being in possession of this book and studying the messages herein may be just as mysterious to you as how the teachings came to me.
I had been away from my writing space on Maui for several months, speaking and spending time with my family. When I returned, I received a call from my yoga teacher telling me that someone had dropped off a package at the studio for me. When I picked it up it was like a gift from King Midas—wrapped in gold paper with a beautiful ribbon tied in a bow.
I brought it home and set the gift next to my eating space and looked at it every day for three weeks, each time thinking it was just one more package to open amongst the mountain of mail that had accumulated over the previous months in my absence.
As I undid the bow, I discovered a note attached to the box, written to me by a Ms. Carol Ann Jacobs, whom I did not know, nor had I even met.
She had heard through the grapevine that I practiced yoga at the Lahaina studio and simply left it there to be given to me when I returned. The note said: This gift of gold is a pearl of the highest wisdom on the planet, handed down through the ethers from the Octave of Light.
If taken up, used, and made as a living flame within oneself—it will lead them into their ascension at the close of this embodiment. Because of the volume of such material that perpetually shows up at my doorstep, I always have a large number of books that I donate to charities. But this little package seemed to have an energy all of its own. Yet it remained next to me for several weeks. One day while I was holding it, I felt a shaft of energy course through me.
I had goose bumps all over my body. And thus began a new chapter in my life. I decided right there and then that I would read the entire pages. The contents of this book led me to further inquiry, which culminated in my? In my daily reading of the material, I began to see clearly the message of you and I and everyone else being God. Guy Ballard was the man present for these dictations, and he published them under his pseudonym Godfre Ray King.
He writes: The thirty-three Discourses contained in this book were dictated over a visible Light and Sound Ray in our home during by the Ascended Master Saint Germain and those other Ascended Masters directly concerned with this Activity. The sound of His Voice was physically audible to everyone in the room. It is of no concern to me to delve into the veracity or authenticity of channeled material—to me, everything is channeled from God.
What I am concerned with is the magnificence of these messages and my awareness that our world could be a world of love, peace, and joy; and we have the power to access unlimited fulfillment of wishes that are aligned with our source of being. The essence is quite simply that I am is the full activity of God, and that each and every one of us can realign ourselves so that our I ams reflect the God that we are, rather than the ego that most of us have become.
Here is one more very important observation from the First Discourse offered by Saint Germain: Every time you think of the expression I Am, you initiate God in action. Why not continually remind yourself that I live, move, and have my being as God, the I am that I am? These five words—I am that I am— contain a message that has been encoded in your soul. According to ancient spiritual teachings dating back 1, years before the birth of Christ, the words I am align you with the Divine, and at the same time remind you that you are the Divine, possessing the same power to create as God.
God Speaks as I Am The infant Moses, you may recall, was put in a basket and left in the reeds by the Nile River because he was the son of an Israelite slave.
The pharaoh had ordered every male child born to Israelite slaves to be drowned in the river. As a young man, Moses witnesses an Egyptian soldier abusing an Israelite slave and responds by killing the soldier and hiding the body. But his adoptive grandfather the pharaoh discovers his misdeed and orders him put to death.
Moses escapes to the land of Midian and finds refuge with Jethro, a local priest, whose daughter Zipporah he marries.
Moses lives primarily as a shepherd and husband for some 40 years. Moses, then, the ancient scriptures tell us, hears God speaking: And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.
Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground. This is also a memorial to you and me in this generation. The name of God, which is you and me, is I am. Still having trouble seeing yourself as God?
Try this: Imagine God as the ocean. If you take a bucket of water out of the ocean, is the water in the bucket the ocean? Yes, indeed, it is altogether ocean—and the ocean, even though it is larger, is still altogether the whole of the ocean in the bucket. Now think of yourself as a bucket of God. Altogether God; and God is altogether you. It is only when you stay separated from the ocean that the water dries up.
This is your task in grasping your highest self—staying aligned and not separated from your Source, and remembering what God says in Psalms The Torah is presumed to have been written some 1, years before the birth of Christ. The holy place where God first manifests and tells Moses to remove his shoes is where Moses discovers who he truly is by his very first words to God: How do you use these words?
Just to reinforce this idea that you are indeed the I am that I am, or God, consider moving forward to the time when Jesus the man was on Earth. His words let you know that this idea of declaring yourself as I Am God is not some New Age interpretation, and in no way is offensive to Christianity. You are not guilty of blasphemy by allowing this belief to be alive within you. Yes, you are equal with God. Throughout the New Testament, many of the most significant messages offered to all of us begin with the name of God—a name that you too have come to use.
All too frequently, though, you use it to define yourself as a part of, or distant from, your Source: I am weak, I am sick, I am poor, I am sad, and so on.
By using the words I am, Jesus tells us that he is one with God. When Jesus did this, miracles followed him everywhere he went. Here are some of those powerful messages from the teachings of Jesus, in which he invokes the name of God as a prefix to his admonitions to all of us. And perhaps the most significant I am statement offered by Jesus: When my youngest daughter, Saje, was a second grader in a private religious school, she told her mother and me that she hated going into the chapel and seeing a dead body impaled on a cross.
We were informed that attendance at chapel was mandatory. The end result was that we transferred her to another school, where such images of suffering did not exist. Jesus said I am the resurrection—the transcendent being of light made of love God is love that is in all of us. This is an image focusing on the suffering, tormented soul in all of us, which then promotes more suffering and terror.
It dwells on the false idea that God is equated with suffering. I prefer the artistic interpretations of Jesus as the resurrection, filled with love and light, transcending earthly suffering and encouraging all of us to love each other rather than the offerings that depict him as a tortured soul.
How different our world might be if we focused on the resurrection, rather than the crucifixion. Collectively, we might live out this mandate and see the eternal resurrected light that truly defines our I am nature. In reading the scriptures while doing research for this book, I noted that the word me when used by Jesus is capitalized or italicized for emphasis.
If he meant Jesus the man who walked among us, then it would make sense to idolize Jesus as the one and only anointed one who has all the powers of God as His only son.
This point needs your deepest attention. He is speaking as God, whose name he has told us is I Am. He reminded us that the flesh counts for nothing, so we can presume he is speaking about his own flesh as well. He was wise and holy enough to realize that the words I am were the spirit of God speaking and not the human body comprised of flesh and bones. This is the essential message of this chapter on your highest self.
Jesus later speaks to you in these words: There is that Me again; the same Me that is you, when you stay aligned and know that you too can and will do great and greater works when you cast out all doubt about your own divinity and live as you are encouraged to live, not just as a piece of God, but as God Himself.
Yes, you need not consider it robbery to be equal with God. Everything depends upon its attitude toward itself; that which it will not affirm as true of itself cannot awaken in its world. I am that I am. Know it and stay in harmony with this Divine I am presence. I return to the poets to sum up that original meeting between Moses and God disguised as a burning bush that resists being consumed: So take off your shoes and respect the holy space that is you.
Three Suggestions — Become conscious of precisely how you are using the words I am in your daily conversations. If whatever follows these two words is not fully aligned with your perception of how the creative Source of the universe would be speaking, then make the correction on the spot.
You cannot overestimate the Power in this Statement. There is no limit to what you can do with it. It was the Statement that Jesus used most in his most difficult trials. If they are willing to listen and change, gently remind them that there is no way to attract what they prefer without acknowledging and applying the active presence of God in them. No arguments—just gentle reminders.
By observing and teaching the I am awareness, you will become more aligned with your highest self. Believing in that ego-driven idea of God as a malevolent superbeing who plays favorites and is filled with rage if you displease Him is akin to believing in the Easter bunny and praying to that rabbit to solve your problems.
Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. There was a quotation on a sign in the window that I read over and over.
The words seemed to touch my soul, and I was prompted by an internal calling to write those words on the back of an envelope. Fast-forward some ten years later to the day I began writing this chapter about that most mysterious function of our human lives—our imagination.
During the morning before settling in to write, I was searching for some tax records in a desk drawer. Unsought, the Blake quote scribbled on the back of an envelope, which had long ago been misplaced, appeared. As I grabbed the ten-year-old envelope, I pondered for a moment how Divine synchronicity is always working, moving the pieces around while our ego believes we are in charge. So I share these words with you from my spiritual mentor back in the 18th century: The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way.
Some see Nature all Ridicule and Deformity … and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself. The greatest gift you were ever given was the gift of your imagination.
Within your magical inner realm is the capacity to have all of your wishes fulfilled. Here in your imagination lies the greatest power you will ever know. It is your domain for creating the life that you desire, and the best part of it is that you are the monarch with all of the inherent powers to rule your world as you desire.
The essence of this great gift is found within another observation made by William Blake, the intuitive poet who lived at the time of the American Revolution. Writing in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, he made this wry comment that is the great secret for living a life of creative manifestation: As this one line of great wisdom sinks into your consciousness, your imagination will then begin to take over. Look around you. This is the great truth that you must come to realize for yourself.
In order for something to get into this world where things exist and are proved, as Blake says, they must first be placed firmly into your imagination. Without your imagination as the reason for future creations, the process of creativity is halted. You have this great power within you. It is a power that is virtually unlimited, and it has been given to you as your birthright.
The visible world of being originates in nonbeing. I could go on through all of the great spiritual traditions and offer you quote upon quote that states that it is in the invisible formless realm that the originating spark of life begins. Today, the world of quantum physics confirms that the universe is made of formless spirit energy, and that particles that is, things do not originate from particles things. Everything springs from something that is akin to your imagination.
It has no boundaries. Yet we all know that it exists. These invisible thoughts that you have—these ideas that continue to percolate within you, these fanciful images that are always with you—are beyond the scope of science to prove or disprove. I love this observation made by Max Planck, the father of quantum theory: And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and, therefore, part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.
It is up to you to channel and use this magnificent endowment to work in the creation of all that you choose to place in that imagination. What Thoreau is saying is so important to you today. Be willing to dream, and imagine yourself becoming all that you wish to be. Thoreau called it advancing confidently in the direction of your own dreams. Unfortunately, most of us have learned to do the opposite with our imagination, and instead regularly use it to develop mental habits of advancing in precisely the reverse direction of our highest dreams for ourselves.
In the next chapter I address in depth how to utilize the I ams and live from your I am God awareness, beginning with your imagination. It refers to the birthless, deathless, changeless spirit that remains in all the changing forms your body takes every moment of your temporary life here on Earth.
It is important that you recognize a few of the imagination missteps that will block you from fulfilling your unique desires. Remember that your imagination is yours and yours alone. You have the inborn capacity to use it in any way that you choose. No one else is responsible for your imagination.
Anything placed in your imagination and held there ultimately becomes your reality. Nikos Kazantzakis reinforces this idea by giving these words to his fanciful character Zorba in his book Zorba the Greek , who always lived his life to the fullest: The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired. This is the largest category of misusing imagination. Start paying attention to general conversation, and you will be astounded by how incredibly prevalent it is.
Begin noticing and being careful about keeping your imagination free of thoughts that you do not wish to materialize.
Instead, initiate a practice of filling your creative thoughts to overflow with ideas and wishes that you fully intend to manifest. Honor your imaginings regardless of others seeing them as crazy or impossible. Recall the words of Kazantzakis and passionately believe in that which is in your imagination and which does not yet exist on the physical plane.
Some Rules for a Healthy Imagination — Rule number one is: You need faith in your power to make the nonexistent your reality. These lead back to the ordinary level of awareness that I wrote about in the first chapter. Now you must be willing to change your concept of yourself, and you cannot do that by hanging on to those old ideas that once were your truths—those truths have kept you from achieving the complete fulfillment of your dreams.
Your imagination can undergo a complete overhaul. Expand your imagination beyond the concept of yourself that limits you to ordinary consciousness. It is a vast, boundaryless realm within you that no one else has access to.
No one can peer into your imagination and place things in there that they prefer for you, nor can they extract any ideas that are percolating in that grand imagination of yours.
Your imagination is your own fertile field for growing any seedlings that you choose to plant for a future harvest. Regularly inventory the thoughts in your imagination. Notice how many of those ideas were originally suggested by well- meaning others, dating all the way back to your early childhood, up to and including today.
You may have been told that you have always been a dreamer, as if this were a fault. I can speak here from experience. Family, friends, teachers, and even advisors frequently disparaged ideas that burned brightly in my imagination. Get real. You are never going to make it as a writer, or a television performer, or a movie personality.
Since I already had a skill as a cryptographer in the Navy, they advised me to pursue what they felt was best for me. But I had a dream—an imagination filled with the idea of teaching, writing, and speaking to large audiences.
I saw myself onstage. I saw myself as a prominent author. I have carried this kind of inner discipline regarding my own imagination with clarity, refusing to allow external opinions to cancel or diminish what for me was hallowed ground. Recently, others advised me that acting in a movie was not sensible for me as a year-old man with no acting experience.
I once again remembered to hang the Do Not Disturb sign at the entrance to my imagination, and proceeded to take acting lessons and adopt the self-enforced regimen that allowed me to create a movie. It is a product that fills me with pride today—all because I have diligently practiced rule three.
Generally speaking, the viewpoints of other people regarding how you should occupy your imagination involve their own self-interest. My naval superiors were really not so concerned with my own ideas about becoming a teacher, writer, and public speaker; they saw a promising naval officer in the making and wanted me to reenlist to help fulfill their own objectives and quotas.
And so it is with most well-meaning, self-appointed life coaches who tell you how you should be thinking about your future. Frequently the inclination to meddle in your imagination is a way to get something for themselves by persuading you of the folly of your dreams.
Enlist only those including yourself who are primarily interested in what you see or hear in your imagination about your life. This is a rather persistent theme in this book, so it bears repeating here: The sentiments of This is reality, This is just the way things are, There is nothing that I can do to change what is , and the like are pernicious thoughts that will taint and defile your great gift of I am that I am, which is your Divine inheritance from your creator.
In your imagination, you can replace the thought of I will one day be in a better place, with I am already in my mind where I intend to be.
This may sound irrational because you are accustomed to evaluating your life on the basis of what your senses tell you is your reality. You can make the choice to reprogram your imagination to take you where you intend to be: Creation originates in the world of Spirit—or, to say it differently, your imagination is the Source of all that has yet to manifest for you.
By staying only with what your senses tell you is your reality, you place a barrier to letting your imagination create all that you wish, all that you desire. Your imagination is unlimited. What is today, is restricted by just that: Albert Einstein made this astute observation: Imagination will take you everywhere.
When you become it in your mind, you gain the same powers as that which you are now casting your lot with: God or the Tao. Your Highest Self and Your Imagination The essence of you—the you who is a spiritual being having a temporary human experience—is cultivated in your imagination. The I am that I am—that is, the you that is God—is impervious to the senses. This means living in harmony with your own personal dharma, feeling on purpose living the life you were intended to live, and feeling the presence of your highest self at work.
Each of these dubious emotional states takes you away from your God-realized self. Impossible, because God is love and God is oneness. This would make God two: So it is with you as well.
Every time you put a non-God descriptor after I am, you negate your Divine nature. The words I am are your sacred identification as God—your highest self. Practice using imagination to define yourself only in ways that are compatible with your highest self, and the universe will supply the happiness, love, and success that you previously imagined eluding you.
I emphasize this based on my own experience. It is simply a sacred imperative for me to live from the knowing that I am God in the truest sense of the word. The result is being fully aligned with my own dharma in ways that often appear not to be connected. I can feel them, and they make themselves known to me in a variety of ways that I once would have labeled far-fetched and impossible. The presence of beings, including those who have passed on, has become my reality. These angelic beings steer me in ways that keep me aligned with my dharma and with my highest self.
A recent example of this comes to mind. I was aware on my evening walk that I was taking a slightly different route as I turned in a different direction than was normal for me.
On the way I noticed a fountain and decided to stop for a few moments. Then as I walked along a path in total darkness, a man called out my name. Because I had done all of these new things, I was aligned with someone who recognized me even in total darkness. We chatted, and I invited this man and his wife and their two small children into my home.
Michael and Angela were on Maui to commemorate the death nine years earlier of their two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. She described it as a feeling of almost giddy joyfulness that permeated her daily life. How many unplanned moves did I take in order for us to meet and share an evening discussing just what I am writing about today? Was I in charge or was I being guided? Were Michael and Angela also being guided to that spot for this encounter to take place?
I did not feel as if I was being steered—what happened was that I was aware just for a fleeting moment. I proceeded to let myself be guided without any sense of listening to extraterrestrial voices, anticipating something grand was going to show up. It was only later that I looked back and saw how all my nonroutine moves were guidance of some kind that allowed that evening meeting to occur.
What transpired in that meeting is what prompted me to tell this story, because it illustrates living from the place of allowing imagination to freely function.
Something seems to kick in and generate circumstances to fulfill our wishes. During our evening together I told Michael and Angela about my experience of an orb an opaque circular feature that appears unexpectedly in photographs appearing on my left shoulder in a photo while I was giving a lecture. Linda has thousands of photos of orbs that she picks up on her camera. She is in the process of having her son help to reveal to her what these appearances mean.
Linda took several photos of me on the island of St. Maarten, and these megaphone-shaped orbs were visible on both my left hip and right side. The shapes are identical to those that appear on her photographs taken from her bedroom window in Michigan where her son once lived.
Linda has absolutely no doubt about the presence of these orbs, at the same time she is in the process of learning what their presence means, and how to best use this information in the fulfillment of a higher calling. This subject of orbs and their purpose is fascinating. Klaus and Gundi Heinemann called Orbs: Their Mission and Messages of Hope, complete with 65 color photos of these rather mystical invisible critters, with convincing commentary and visual evidence to convert the skeptic.
I have the photos of these orbs and their highly enlarged images in my home, and I have been astonished to discover how my feelings of not being alone in this new I am journey are being verified not only with my increased awareness, but with photographic evidence as well. Suddenly all of the crazy things that are happening to you begin to make sense.
Perhaps all of the things that aligned in order for me to meet this family occurred so that someone reading this book would read these words and consider the possibility of guidance being available from another realm—and commit to using their imagination in a new way.
That someone may be you. Let your imagination explore your invisible realm in a way that will allow this new energy to permeate your life. If we check carefully how we are experiencing problems and unhappiness, we can understand that they are all created by our uncontrolled desire, wishing ourself to be happy all the time.
By stopping this wish and instead wishing for others to be happy all the time, we will not have any problems or unhappiness at all. If we sincerely practise every day stopping wishing for ourself to be happy all the time and instead wishing for others to be happy all the time, then we will understand from our own experience that through this practice, which prevents attachment to the fulfilment of our own wishes, we will have no experience of problems or unhappiness at all.
Thus, if we really want pure and everlasting happiness and freedom from misery, we must learn to control our mind, principally our desire. With wisdom we can understand how our human life is precious, rare and meaningful. Due to the limitations of their body and mind, those who have taken rebirth as animals, for example, have no opportunity to understand or practise spiritual teachings that are methods to control delusions such as uncontrolled desire, anger and ignorance.
Only humans are free from such hindrances and have all the necessary conditions for engaging in spiritual paths, which alone lead to pure and everlasting happiness. This freedom and possession of necessary conditions are the special characteristics that make our human life so precious.
Although there are many humans in this world, each one of us has only one life.
