Whatever the mind has to offer, spirit has more. Whatever our life experiences have to offer, spirit has more. Whatever past experiences we remember, spirit has more. Outside the thinking mind, even as we wander across the world, spirit is everything, and we are the bounty of its exploration of itself. Just a taste of the nectar of that bounty is enough to send us to the mountain top crying, “Here I am! I am ready to know!” Or deep into the meditative heart, on the eternal quest to know the source of one’s existence and the love that is the first clue of divinity.

An Inventory for Accessing the Mysterious Present

I have stood alone for years with what you are about to read. As an inventory, it is not meant to engage your mind in an intellectual colloquy about the nature of reality or what happens after we leave this world. Everything is here and now and meant solely to lead you to the last item.

Every day I am astonished by my personal existence.


I accept that the life I am living can never be fulfilled.


I am ready to drop the veil of earthplanet plane and accept as my Self the illusion-free reality of my godbeing core.


I surrender my life story as an illusion of the veil.


I surrender love as an illusion of the veil.


I ask my divine self to remove the veils that hide the spiritual universe from my vision.


I realize that I and the world of my experience are a module of perception, one among many dream worlds that collectively comprise earthplanet plane.


My module of perception along with all other modules of perception that constitute earthplanet plane are a dream vision rising out of a cosmic lord on another plane of existence.


What questions do you expect to be answered when you pass from this world?


I am ready to step outside of everything I know.


No matter where I stand, I am always here.


I can access my identity as a godbeing traveler of the quantum cosmos.


The stars and planets turn around me by an intent that is not my own; I think and feel and act through the grace of that same intent. 


I have stood alone and awake to the great beyond.


I have felt the searing gaze of infinity penetrate my mind.


I have felt the rapture of the heart’s divine song.


I know that I live and die in one divine breath.


I remember the ancient ones, who created the passageways of travel through which I will move as a liberated soul into the great beyond.


I remember gathering with enlightened souls on the shores of the unknown ready to move out together into the great beyond.


What do you expect to find when you pass from this world?


Are you ready to choose your manner of passage out of earthplanet plane?


Do either of these options for passage into the great beyond feel familiar to you? Eternal life in the absolute spirit, or many lifetimes in a created cosmos of form as it lives and dies in the void of the original nothing?


Does your heart feel bound to the lord of this cosmos?


What did you expect to find when you pass from this world?


Can you feel the deep mystery passing through you right now?


On a subplane of your planetary field, human spirits are gathering to learn the art of quantum travel. Many have come and are now exploring deep mysteries with the ancient masters through limited voyages out into the beyond and very highly structured incarnations into earthplanet plane. As daunting as quantum travel is to these novice travelers, nothing can abuse them of their intent. Be at peace with this truth. It always is.


We have taken it for granted that the world is what we have learned in school, and at home, and in churches and temples, and in the backrooms where we plotted schemes to achieve, win the day and overcome the fear that binds us to the rules of the powers that be when all around and inside and beyond the thinking mind spirit eternally is. Who or what keeps us bound into the view of the world that is destroying us? Is self-destruction part of the divine plan, and do we even believe in a divine plan at times other than when we need solace from something horrible that has happened to us?

In this episode, listeners have a chance to assess their thinking about spirit, to realize that spirit is not in our thoughts or theologies. It is existence itself. And what to do with that? Tread the path of a soul asserting one’s virtues over one’s vices; or going the way of spirit with the inner lion lying down with the lambs and allowing the divine to enter through absolute acceptance of all that is?



Where ever do I look, when the infinite self which I have suddenly become ponders the loneliness, even though days and weeks and years have passed since I knew my personal life was over. Through the books, the mantras, the prayers, the grand words and searing beauty of images and stories and rhythms that are all about that and where to find it, a fierce longing endures. Infinite being that I am, I still need that act of longing, even if it is only a gesture, a nod of the head, a movement in the eye from that being that knows, that personhood that peers out of the infinite as someone that is not the impersonal, cold absolute. There cannot be unbounded life without it! I cannot crawl out of the ocean onto land without that something that will make infinity plausible as a landscape for living. Where to go without that? Who to be?

You can’t help but want to bow down when you look up from the normal drudgery of human existence and exclaim, “I want to know!” What to do when the passion grabs you, when the shakti roars through the mind’s confusions and fears and opens up to grand thoroughfares of cosmic beings on the same journey exploring the infinite conditions of existence. And your humanity? Humanity has never been more valuable to itself when you look up from your mortal eyes and see with the eyes of the absolute spirit.

But humanity has a decision to make. Are we dealing with the unknowns of life by turning ourselves into biotic androids; or are we waking up to grand drama of existence through the power of spirit to inquire into its reality as you? Perhaps they are not mutually exclusive now, but there will come a point. At this moment, however, now is what we have. The infinity of now or the prolonged struggle in the world of mental machinations pushing death off farther into the future? Who wants to know?

What does it sound like when eternity whispers intimately into our ear? Can we separate ourselves enough from the cacaphony of our thinking and worldly living to hear the wisp of knowing that turns us inexorably toward spirit? When the head bows its acceptance, vistas of reality open up before us, whether we end up standing on a mountain top surveying the vast landscape of infinite possibilities for existing or we engage in the simplest of activities, like sweeping the veranda. If you know who you are, it is all very simple. Just a whisper for it all to become undone.
