I am sure you have heard this statement many times, but like most people you take these common statements for what they are at face value and never try to dissect them to see if there is any validity hidden within, and in this case, of course there is.

I do want to assure you that I am not on a crusade to push the theory of reincarnation on you if you are not ready to understand, and in fact, until you are ready, you will never understand. As I have said, reincarnation is, it operates constantly whether you believe in it or not. If you die not believing that lives are consecutive and that you will continue to live again and again, you will be one of most surprised when you find out how wrong you have been. Ironically, some of the most deluded are those who are thoroughly steeped in religious dogma and realize on death, just how wrong their beliefs were and lament how they influenced others to listen and believe in their flowery orations on sin, damnation, death and the ever popular with evangelists, the infamous lake of fire.

Now, I only mention this because the belief in only “One Life”, a death and then if anything, assimilating into a somewhat nebulous godly existence for the rest of eternity, is not only a severely limiting belief but causes one to place undue caution in the joyful living of life. On the other hand, an understanding of the inevitability of continuing meaningful lives, the maintaining of friends and family associations from one life to another, the accumulation of and continuity of knowledge from life to life can be not only reassuring, but completely liberating.

When you understand and truly believe that death as you know it simply does not exist, what does exist is the physically perceived death of the mortal body. Your perception of a physical death is simply your inability to follow the transformation of the actual identity into another form. You have another body which is your natural form that is inherently yours and you will use it in absence of the physical body and you will revert to it instantly upon death.. This analogy is not the best I must admit, but you use your natural, eternal, non-physical astral body as a launching pad for exploratory projections into various reality systems in which you will assume the appropriate body of choice of that particular system for a limited time. The eternal consciousness uses and sheds bodies like a snake sheds its skin in molting. Bodies are expendable and are jettisoned when they begin to falter and fail, personalities are eternal.

So I don’t leave any stone unturned here, when I say personalities, I mean the real inner YOU, with all of your little idiosyncracies, memories, habits, loves, desires and yes, hates too, until you rid yourself of them. That REAL YOU never dies or dissipates. The ego self that you are most familiar with, changes and blends with the inner ego self that you know so little about. You will use your new bodies, benefit and learn from the use of them, then discard them as you will one day discard the one you inhabit now, and never give it another thought. There are many worlds, and there are many bodies to utilize and then discard in your adventures into these new worlds, planes, dimensions and universes.

Life is meant to be lived exuberantly, not protected and cloistered, but on the other hand, not squandered either. Life is sacred and although you don’t realize it at this stage of your development, you are always protected, so you have no need to fear. When you are young you begin your formal schooling and as you learn, you progress from grade to grade, from school to school, accumulating knowledge as you go, making new acquaintances, forming new alliances and making new friends in the process.

You do exactly the same thing as you are born into the physical world, learn, make friends, form families, and when you have learned your lifetime of experience, you die and prepare for a new life and new experience. Only the physical body dies of course, and the indestructible identity continues merrily on its way unbeknownst to friends and family lamenting the passing. In that respect, dying is easiest on the one doing the dying and hardest for those left behind, not seeing the release of the spirit form that continues on to live again, once again making new friends, reconnecting with past friends who have gone before, forming new life experiences and reestablishing old ones..

I mention these things simply because when you understand the true nature of reality, the continuity of all life, you also begin to get the feeling that it only gets better as you begin to “know” knowledge that you have always had access to, but didn’t know how to access. You are now physically and psychically embedded in the earth system, and though it may seem that your soul/entity abandoned you in the midst of what sometimes seems chaotic, nonsensical universe with no prior knowledge of where you came from or why you are here, you always have support even though you may not consciously be aware of this knowledge. Remember this, there is always hope, no one was ever born into a hopeless life. You make your life what it is, so you can’t blame others for your lacks or failures, and the sooner you realize that you are not a victim of life, but poised on the threshold of great creativity and you are only limited by the limitations that you place on yourself through your beliefs. What you believe is NOT possible, will never be achieved.

You may wonder why all of this mystery of life is not commonly held knowledge. Why can’t you know now, why can’t you have absolute proof that you have lived before and will live again? Because at this stage of your development, the physical brain could not handle the cumulative information of previous lives since it can barely deal with the trials and tribulations of just your present existence. What you want to know will be common knowledge in your future, for now, the people who pursue this inner knowledge will be led to it but on an individual basis.

Living life in fear can be very detrimental, in that hates and distorted beliefs that cause blockages of the free flow of life’s energy are the result of fear. Hate comes from fear, fear comes from lack of knowledge and knowledge is not found by burrowing yourself into some isolated cocoon of safety. You must reach out and experience life in all of its abundance, accepting all types of experience that may be beneficial to your growth and understanding. Fears resulting in blockages of the free flow of the creative energy of ‘All That Is” will more often than not attempt to express themselves in the form of exterior difficulties inflicted on your own physical form; they are called illnesses, sicknesses and infirmities. Nothing will draw your attention to inner discord more than a cancer or tumor. It is your inner self, trying to expresses itself to the Outer Ego Self in the only way it knows how on the physical level, the creation of an illness that is meant to alert the outer self that something is wrong in Denmark. (Wrong inside, that is).

On the other hand, when you take life for what it seems to give you, experience it, learn from it, even the failures, you benefit and the Soul/Entity also gain from the experience. In a larger slice of reality, you actually never have anything thrust upon you, because you unknowingly create everything that happens to you. But this is not the place to discuss creating events and selves. (See articles on Creating). Try and realize how invigorating it will be the first time you truly realize that you live forever, bottom line, there is nothing you can do that can invalidate that truth. You have never committed a so-called sin that you will be judged for and every breath you take is in truth a part of All That Is, and you are indeed blessed with eternal validity and unlimited lives, so you should live this life to the fullest.

This statement is redundant I am sure, but I want to make sure there is no misunderstanding here when I say you live forever, I mean YOU, the you that is reading this article, cannot be destroyed, diminished, or absorbed into some sublime godly presence. I mean that in your future you will live meaningful, purposeful lives in many worlds and universes that will make this existence pale by comparison. Your experiences here will not be forgotten, but used as foundations for future knowledge. Each of these lives, some lived again in the earth system, some much more advanced, will require a different outer form, some physically manifested, some not and you will not look like you do now.

I think it best to take life one step at a time, trying not to fear what may come tomorrow, but experiencing today to the fullest. Tomorrow will happen in due time and you will deal with it then. Now, this is a very important thing to remember in creating what you want in your life today and influencing what happens tomorrow. Everyone wants things, some want love, some want Cadillacs, and you do indeed get what you concentrate on, but you have to know how to concentrate and what to concentrate on. Most people don’t get what they want out of life because they are doing it wrong.

Here is a hint on how to do it right and I am well aware that some of you will find it hard to believe that something as innocuous as a simple thought can be an incipient object or event. By the way, an event is simply an object in motion and both are constructed of atomic particles although they may seem to be from a different origin. Hidden behind the blur of atoms and molecules, are smaller and smaller physical particles, some known and some yet to be discovered, until you reach the non-physical units of conscious energy that will eventually propel themselves to penetrate the barrier between invisible inner reality and perceivable outer physical reality and begin to become something perceivable within the range of your physical senses.

They will change in the process, like particles attracting and capturing other like particles to coagulate into something that you can see, hear, feel, taste and smell. You call them objects and events. They are in fact, qualities of an existing field of energy that your senses create, organize and deliver to your brain for assimilation, classification and utilization. Reality in the most basic way is a RESULT of unseen processes finally becoming seen.

You will either get a feeling for this inner truth, or you won’t. Either way, here is how you can create what you want and why most DON’T get what they want. You think a thought, the thought, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant to you, is the actual birth of some object or event and WILL most certainly materialize some where some time. Some thoughts not carrying enough impetus, strength of conviction, will drop into other worlds or universes below your field of perception, as you might think of assimilating into a cloud in another world. No thought and no energy is ever wasted.

The thought with enough conviction, enough desire, enough expectation, will immediately begin the process of materialization into your life. This process is not instantaneous as it would be in a dream, but it is happening whether you are conscious of the continuing inner processes or not. Here is what you must do to materialize a thought into reality. Think about the thought intensely for A FEW MINUTES each day when you go to bed or at any other time that is reliable (Prayer can be used just as well). It is not necessary to concentrate on it continuously, in fact, that is where most people make the biggest mistake. Think the thought, then forget it for that day. Do not overdo it, to continue to think the thought or constantly repeat the though that you want to materialize, only begins to build up doubts that the process is working..This sets up an electrical resistance that inhibits the natural inclination of consciousness particles to swarm, collect about them particles of like charge and at some point, morph into physical atoms and molecules in the physical system and form themselves into an object or event.

Think this same thought every day for a few minutes only. That is enough, then drop it and go about your other business. Expect positive results, desire is important, but without positive expectations, nothing at all would exist in any world. The process itself is neutral, automatic and spontaneous once it is initiated with your first thought, but you must trust in the results, and the inclination to think about what you want constantly is a mistake. Remember, this is not pie in the sky theory, it happens with your conscious awareness or not, but you can influence this materialization process to your benefit.

In other words, life is inevitable, it is unstoppable and it is continuous, so what have you to worry about? Would you not at some point in your life take the option of lying down to sleep at night, certain that tomorrow you would wake up in a new, healthy and vibrant body, retaining all of your memories, characteristics, habits and loves? Since time is an illusion shared only by inhabitants of your physical world, then the rest period after a life is ended seems more like a night of sleep, even though it may last for a hundred years.

You have been given the gifts of the gods, the ability to create an eternal life, so there is no need to fear life, its myriad of experiences and all of it’s seemingly tragic consequences. There will come a point in some future life when you will KNOW what is now withheld from you, and you will look back and realize how silly you were to live your life in fear.

As an aside, John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Walter Cronkite are all doing just fine, thank you..

The question as it is posed; I do believe in reincarnation but am a little confused in that I have read in some books that a human person can be born as an animal in another life. Could you explain this and set the matter straight for me?

I guess we will have to assume that anyone who reads our little one way chat already has some suspicion that life does not end when the physical body is jettisoned by the inhabiting personality. There have been so many ample proofs of reincarnation that I won’t attempt to convince anyone of the obvious, but leave those who are dead set on a one life scenario to their own beliefs. Funny thing about this is that no matter how vehemently a person believes that they are entitled to only one life, followed by a somewhat nebulous future, there is nothing they can do to limit themselves to just one paltry existence if that is what they so desire.

Reincarnation is one of the natural characteristics of “physical reality”, that is, reality existence in a world of concrete, rigid objects and events, formed from the inner nature of atomic structure. The main reason that reincarnation is a necessary characteristic of physical reality is that no physical objects or bodies last can last forever, and in the case of your physical body, its demise must not be a permanent condition but a time of rest and renewal. In other realities such as your familiar dream world, reincarnation is not needed since dream constructions, unlike physical ones, do not deteriorate and die as physical bodies do. A thought never dies, nor does a dream even though you may lose track of it.

Reincarnation is just one of the two main characteristics, the other is that all physical worlds (and there are many), exists in a psychological bed of probabilities. What that means in simple terms, is that all events, past, present and future exist in a very real inner universe of creative impetus toward things to come, providing an inner psychic storehouse of possibilities for future development. Having said that, back to the main subject for this discussion, reincarnation, what is it, why does it exist and how does it work?

Self aware, self propelled inner energy is the source of all manifestations, objects and people, animals and plants alike. If it were not for your propensity to classify and catagorize things by dividing them arbitrarily into groups to your liking, then you could easily see that these groupings are very misleading. It is you who decides who or what is ALIVE and what is not, and for that matter, what does alive really mean? Why do you say man is alive and a rock is not? Are they not constructed of many of the same elements? Is a rock, not alive (dead) because you do not see it move? You do not usually see coral move, but you cannot deny that coral is alive.

All of what you consider living organisms reincarnate, from snails to humans, the difference being that the lower life forms move in and out of living structures more easily than you because they are not burdened by the existence of ego awareness and intellect as you know it. The reality behind all living matter lives forever in those terms only not continuously, but surely maintaining a certain continuity of life from one existence to another.

When an animal reincarnates, it may do so only within its specific classification, and I don’t particularly like that term, since it is also arbitrary, but it will have to do for now. It will usually, as in all species, seek to reincarnate in either the same form, a cat into a cat, or join consciousness with other species to form a more complicated species within the same classification, as in a squirrel reincarnating into a dog. In other words, a squirrel may live again and again as a squirrel, but there will come a time even within these seemingly lower classifications, when the need for advancement will necessitate the combining of energies with other species to form a more meaningful existence in terms of psychological values and satisfactions. There are no real limits to the possibilities within the reincarnation progressions of animals or men, but there are practical limitations. What I am saying here is that even simple cell is an incipient entity, that will sometime, somewhere be realized.

All reincarnational realities are therefore practically limited to intra-species lives, meaning that mammals will reincarnate as mammals, birds as birds and fish as fish. It only seems to you from examination of fossil records that birds evolved into dinosaurs through the process of reincarnation and evolution, but you are not seeing the whole picture and you are missing evidence that would show countless in-between species that did not take, that ran into an evolutionary dead end, leaving confusing gaps in your understanding of reincarnation. But for the sake of our discussion, all species reincarnate and evolve within their own classifications, developing refinements and changing and adapting to their environment.

Then, in answer to the original question, NO,,,,,,,man does not reincarnate into any animal and likewise, no animal ever reincarnated or evolved into a man or woman. In other words, there is NO transmutation of species. Period. There is no inter-species reincarnation or evolution even though you incomplete records may lead you to believe there is.

There is another ramification of life and death that you have probably not considered. Lost somewhere in ancient times when countless early species were sorting themselves out for significant meaningful lives in a new and rapidly changing environment, between man and primate, there were countless varieties of man-monkey and monkey-man that died out, leaving you to think that you are seeing a continuous progression of monkey into man. That is not the case, man was always man as fish were always fish, birds always birds, mammals always mammals. The similarity in gene structures simply indicate that all life is very much alike.

Finally, if you want to get really specific, you could say that there are elements of monkeys, dogs, flowers and trees in man. Lets say that you die, your cells finally drop from your body into the earth where they lie dormant for years, combining with other natural elements in the soil. Lets also say that in that same location, other animals and plants have died and their bodies have also assimilated into the earth. A farmer plants corn on that very same plot of land that is made up of many elements and past cellular structures of countless creatures and plants. The corn crop assimilates nutrients from the earth, some of which carry traces of past living things.

An expectant mother eats corn that she purchased from the super market that was grown on that very same plot of land and her body uses these nutrients derived from the corn to facilitate the growth of the fetus within her body. Your mother did the same, not thinking that in doing so, she was passing along to you the remnants and history of the Earth and its ancient and current life forms, so life always springs forth from death and you could say in a rather real way, that in your physical make up, you carry the traces of many other past species.

Conclusion; There is NO transmutation of species as you think of it. You will never be a cow.

Dictionary: SPIRITUALITY: The state of being spiritual, having to do with the church or the clergy. A state of living a heavenly life......

My question to you is this; can one be too spiritual or too holy?

I came up with the question after watching a well known spiritual guru guy on a recent show on public television who made me wonder if anyone truly understands what it means to be “Spiritual”. I won’t mention names here other than to say that this person is very well known and a widely published author of many best selling books. He claims to be a Dao Master, but master of what, repeating quotations? His ability to quote verbatim reams of esoteric quotes from the Dao, the Lao, the Tao, perhaps Mao and surely Harry Caray’s Holy Cow, is beyond question, but can disciplined memorizing of quotations whose real meanings are so esoteric that you have to struggle to understand their intent, bring one to true spirituality or make you more holy, and is spirituality as it is described a necessary or beneficial state of being? Rhetorical question of course and the rhetorical answer is No.

Some monks and clerics sit silently for an entire lifetime, ritually bobbing back and forth with repetitious head nodding and other obsessive behaviors inducing a trance like state, isolated in monasteries on mountaintops contemplating an inner world that most would find extremely limited and unbearable, but to them, they have achieved a spiritual state, albeit a pretty sterile one at best. Which brings up the next question, is isolation and a lifetime of contemplation helpful in achieving spirituality? Again the answer is No. Nirvana and Heaven as your myths speak of them do not exist and it’s a good thing because this idealized final dissolution of identity into a supreme being would violate the original intent of “All That Is” to fragment and disperse itself throughout countless worlds and universes and through doing this know itself in all possible manifestations.

There are the Sunday morning television evangelists who can quote every passage of the Bible and amaze you with their Biblical knowledge while they try to convince you that you are indeed a flawed, damned and sinful creation from birth whose only hope of finding salvation is through giving money to them to support their lavish lifestyles. Of course, spirituality is a personal thing, and who am I to tell you what it is, since it is different to everyone, but if you base your interpretation of true spirituality on the above dictionary definition, you would be making a great mistake. And frankly, if you lived a heavenly life as it is usually supposed, you would be bored to death.

True spirituality does not come from repetition and memory of the writings of someone else, it does not even come from someone else. Spirituality is not something you can learn, it is not something you can study. You can read about the spiritual journeys of others, but your own spirituality will never come from without, but from within and not so much from reading but from living and following your own path.

You look to others for a path to follow, and that’s OK, but in very real terms, you only do this because you have been so indoctrinated in the belief in your sinfulness and the sinfulness of your contemporaries that you feel it necessary to look to others to show you the way to salvation. Sometimes in doing this, you limit your ability to sense the true nature of spirituality which pervades your entire reality system from the lowliest to the most exalted, from the worm to human consciousness, and because you do not sense the goodness surrounding you and the rightness of the natural world and your place in it, does not make it any less valid.

You use an arbitrary system of human imposed laws, sins and judgements to classify and evaluate what you consider good, bad, evil, godlessness and spiritual qualities, while ignoring the evidences also surrounding your very being, of the good and love inherent in even your most reprehensible acts. In a way that you are probably not prepared to understand at this point, the universe could never have emerged from a bed of evil, devils and hate. In a way, you could say that the universe emerged out of a state of love and intense need to be. Hate is simply the lack of love, in a sense it is a negative condition arising from the lack of the positive condition. It is love, turned inside out.

I should tell you that this life of yours, the life that you are living now, is but one story of your life, and you did not decide on this life, which you surely did, with the intent of following gurus and spiritual teachers with bobbing heads and flowery words meant to save you from your individualness. You were born in a wonderful state of grace and NO MATTER what you choose to do in-between in this life, you will leave this life in a state of grace, whether or not someone wearing golden vestments sprinkles holy water on your sinful dying body. You can learn from the words of others, but no others have the power or ability to live your life for you, and if you seek spiritual enlightenment, then search for it within yourself. In a way, the more you try to live your life trying to guard against missteps and acting in a so called spiritual way, the farther you get from the true nature of spirituality. Here’s a hint, if someone looks and acts spiritual, they are not.

You were not born yesterday, and on the day of your birth you did not enter this life with a blank slate, emerging from oblivion into physical life, no one knows nothing, there are however degrees of knowing. You came into this life with a history, with latent knowledge, but if you don’t understand that, you will not look for it, since you don’t know that it exists, and one does not search for something that they don’t suspect exists. I have said this before, but it bears repeating; at this stage of your development as a personality, you KNOW, but you don’t know you know. You are evolving toward a state where you KNOW and you will KNOW you know. There is a big difference In that respect, I do not so much teach you what I know, but remind you of knowledge possessed by your inner self, and help bring it to the surface of ego awareness. That is why you will occasionally find yourself saying “I knew that”. You did, you just didn’t know you did.

Now, spirituality comes from within and without, but until now you have tended to search for spirituality from the wisdom of others and I tell you that you know more about YOUR spiritual heritage than all religious and so called spiritual gurus that have ever lived. True spirituality is the knowing that in the midst of countless universes, systems, planes, dimensions, semi gods and God itself, that you are unique within this abundance and you are indeed at the center of your universe, no matter what anyone tells you. You have not one iota of sin about you, you were not born in sin and you are not living in sin, and regardless of what you do on this journey, you cannot fall into sin since sin as you understand it does not exist. You are special in all of the universe and there is not one other like you. You are an eternal identity/personality. It makes no difference if you walk softly, act humble, speak quietly and lower your eyes in submission or even spend hour after hour repeating esoteric spiritual phrases until you reach a trance state, numbing the intellect beyond recognition.

You chose this life and any behavior that limits your living of life on ALL of its terms will inhibit your spiritual progress since real progress comes from the true life experienced, not from some watered down version of fluffy, erethral experience, but by jumping into your life feet first and learning from your mistakes. You chose a life to learn and that usually comes from dealing with difficult challenges, but no challenge was ever accepted by you that could ultimately defeat you. The answers to all of your life challenges are available within you, otherwise you would not have chosen them in the first place. That being said, it is always more advantageous to the personality to initiate good works rather than bad, but remembering that good and bad are relative judgement calls, and what you consider good, others may consider bad. Always treat others as you would treat yourself, and more importantly, always treat yourself as you would treat others.

The road to true spirituality will never be found looking only outside or only inside, but will spontaneously emerge when you least expect it. You will find it in the morning mist at the seashore. You will find true spirituality in the chill of a first wind driven snow or the sight of a litter of kittens being born. You will find a hint of your emerging spirituality the first time you refuse to kill a bug, a fish, a squirrel, or a human. Many of you have already reached that point many years ago and were ridiculed and prosecuted when they refused to go to war and kill. You are all not at the same level of spiritual development and the reason for that is almost too simple to mention, but I will anyway.

You did not all enter this (Earth) system of physical experience at the same time, nor have you all experienced the same number of lives. Haven’t you ever wondered why some of your contemporaries seem so advanced and others are still living in darkness? In other words, some of you had a head start and because of that, after this life, will leave t his system for other more advanced worlds before the others. I am not sure exactly how to say this nicely, but if you are ignorant in this life, it does not hold that you will automatically be wise in the next, that upon death, you will become all knowing, but you will work through the difficulties and you will learn given enough time and you have all the time that you need.

No one evolves backward although there are some temporary retractions of intellectual prowess from life to life that would make it seem so. Finally, those who try the hardest to be spiritual and holy will usually be the last to find true spirituality, but you will never be able to convince them of this truth, nor should you.

True spirituality realizes the sanctity of ALL LIFE, and although you find it necessary at this time to kill to eat, you will evolve beyond that need. Until then, it is simply the way you chose to evolve your reality system and that need was intended to be temporary. True spirituality understands your connection with every other living thing and respects the right of all life to live a fruitful and value fulfilled existence. Spirituality recognizes their oneness with nature and the environment. True spirituality can be, but usually will never be found in a church or on your knees. True spirituality will be shouted from the mountaintop and whispered alike in the silence of night, and no personality that says “Look at me, I am spiritual” will be spiritual. Spirituality is not something you acquire, it is something you are, it is woven within the chromosomes of your very essence and it cannot be switched on and off. Finally, spirituality is part of every fibre of your self, and all you have to do is to live your life to the fullest, harming no other thing and allowing all other consciousness the same right to life.

A spiritual person follows his own path, allowing full flow of his emotions; to restrain emotions only causes blockages of the free and unimpeded flow of creative energy. Emotions and feelings, even though they may seem aggressive or belligerent are valid feelings and to repress them is limiting of the real nature of the spirit. Spirituality is approached when the individual personality honors his own feelings and emotions and recognized them as a necessary and valid part of his identity. One who never gets mad will never experience true joy. Spirituality is enjoying the joy inherent in life itself, moving with the flow of life easily and understanding your natural state of grace.

Life is easy if you are doing it right. Sure, there will be problems and difficulties that you will seem to accidentally encounter, not understanding that you yourself has created them for your own benefit. You may think that as you evolve and grow and live in worlds and realities beyond anything you can now imagine, that life will be problem free, but you will always have problems to solve and challenges to meet. Reality exists only because of the delicate imbalances that challenges create.

If you were perfectly poised walking on a tightrope, never faltering, securely fixated and balanced, you would achieve something approaching a trance like state. It is only when you begin to fall, that you wake up, come to life, attempt to regain your balance, fight to once again achieve that sought after state of balance. This instability, this state of imbalance and the attempt to regain balance is what initiates within action the original creation of “IDENTITY” and REALITY itself. These challenges will never end if life is to continue in any system.

What I am trying to say here is “live your life on life’s terms, joyfully accept life’s challenges and you will rise above them and you will benefit from the endeavor. Isolate yourself in a cocoon of repetitive dogma and your will only deter your real psychological growth. Life is meant to live, not to isolate yourself and protect by erecting walls of concrete or words. If you believe that you only have one life to live, then all of this may seem quite tragic to you. You do not have to follow the wisdom of a Dao, Tao or Mao to find true enlightenment, since true enlightenment comes from and through all personalities, you just have to recognize it when you perceive it. To that end, here are a few words that I find truly insightful and from the most unlikely sources.

We are all here for a spell; get all the good laughs you can. (Will Rogers)
When you come to a fork in the road, take it. (Yogi Berra)
It's a shallow life that doesn't give a person a few scars. (Garrison Keillor - Prairie Home Companion)
Eighty percent of success is showing up. (Woody Allen)
A God that can be understood is no God. Who can explain the Infinite in words? (W. Somerset Maugham)

The question as it is posed: Why don’t I have psychic abilities that some other people seem to have and to be able to use to communicate with others, see into the future and read minds?
This is really an interesting question and the answer is difficult because no two people are the same in their physical or psychic abilities, and no two people having equal psychic abilities will even recognize their existence or utilize them in the same way, or maybe not even use them at all in an entire lifetime. Some on the other hand, will use their psychic abilities in a very natural way and never notice it or understand that they are even being used.

First, let me say that what we are discussing here are abilities that are usually referred to as clairvoyance, mental telepathy, contact with survival personalities and others not so clearly defined, but falling under the broad category of paranormal. It would be nice to be able to say that everyone is born with the same psychic abilities but this is not the case. It is true, that everyone is born with the same latent psychic abilities, just as everyone is generally born with one head, two arms and two legs. There are of course, exceptions to this rule, but they do not warrant discussion at this time.

For sake of our discussion, we will assume that what you would loosely call psychic abilities are natural attributes of all consciousness, not only man, but also the animals plants and trees. Just as some men learn to use their two arms, two legs or what lies between the ears in ways that seem to escape the abilities of most normal people, nevertheless the abilities they possess belong to the race as a whole and they simply represent latent potentialities in everyone. What one can do, others can also do, but not all equally well as a rule. This holds true both in physical and mental abilities and those who seem to display extraordinary psychic abilities do so because those abilities have been developed in this or in a previous lifetime. There are other factors of course, but primarily, psychic abilities are much like your physical abilities, they can be developed and increased through practicing the use of them, by not relying exclusively on information derived only from the outer senses and by simply “paying attention” to what’s going on around you. What is very important in the development of your psychic abilities is simply “knowing” that they exist and can be nurtured and developed. You must then, know that they exist and expect them to rise to the surface of your attention.

For example, what you call telepathy, comes in different flavors, from the cellular type of inter communication that is necessary for the initial formation and continuing maintenance of the physical body to the more complicated type of mental telepathy that you are concerned with when you consider communication between two seemingly independent people. This type of telepathy is in the most basic of terms, a sympathetic communication, an attraction of like thoughts to like thoughts of others connected with you through some common denominator. That is why in most cases this outwardly recognizable type of communication takes place within what may be considered your personal circle of influence, your closest friends, relatives, family, people who you are closely connected on the physical and non physical plane. In this respect, mental telepathy knows no borders and can take place between the living and the non-living just as easily since it is in actuality, a electromagnetic reality independent of physical matter. In some cases the communication may be delivered through the auspices of a medium.

Mental communication of course goes on all of the time beneath your conscious level of recognition and is the basis for all language. Language would be nonsensical and virtually impossible without the accompanying mental communication taking place behind and underneath the physical words that are spoken. Being able to detect and notice this mental communication depends much on the personalities involved. In other words, you may be so closely aligned with someone that you sense their intentions, it seems you almost know their every thought, but you never recognize that as telepathy. In order for you to recognize paranormal events for what they really are, you have to first acknowledge that they exist and then you have to pay attention.
The reason telepathy and clairvoyance are rarely proved to the scientific mind is that they cannot be forced, and the harder you try to materialize a paranormal occurrence, the more unlikely it is to happen. ESP events first of all are spontaneous and cannot usually be planned or dictated. They are instant illuminations from the inner self through the subconscious, so with that in mind, they cannot usually be called up to the attention of the ego conscious brain. They seem out of place to your normal train of thoughts, they flash instantaneously in your mind and they are gone just as quickly, and that my friends is how you can recognize and identify a true metaphysical, paranormal happening such as telepathy. You have to get used to noticing the “out of the ordinary” intrusion of thoughts that don’t seem to fit in with your current conversation or thought patterns. You have to peek around psychological corners to see what is normally not seen.

How many times have you thought about something, had a good idea, only to find out that someone else has come up with the same idea and utilized it much to your chagrin. How many times have you said “I thought of that”? And in truth you did, but you didn’t pay attention at the time.

It’s not that it was supposed to be this way, in fact, the way your consciousness evolved demanded the full attention of the ego to deal with the new physical world, but there never was supposed to be the total separation of the inner and outer ego, the conscious and the sub-conscious such as has developed. You are now in the process of re-establishing this necessary connection of the inner, psychic world and the outer physical world where you have centered your attention for centuries. In a sense, you are re-familiarizing yourself with a segment of your identity that to some extent has become dormant for lack of use. Fortunately for you, it is not gone, just set aside waiting to be once again called up into service, the service that it was initially intended.

As we have discussed before, there are some of you who have just entered the physical system as new personalities, and some who are here for the last time, so you are not all at the same level of development, and in fact, if you are interested and reading this material regularly, you can rest assured that you are advancing to more evolved systems. There are some of you who will hang on to old, worn out ideas, myths and children’s stories and consider the knowledge contained in these articles as demonic, damned and destined for God’s wrath and punishment. They will not be dissuaded from their beliefs until they have learned from their own experience and that takes time, in most cases many lifetimes. In a way, you must serve your time to gain knowledge and those newer personalities will learn, although sometimes at a turtles pace.

Whether you know it or not, you have psychic abilities that work regardless of your conscious awareness of them, the real trick is learning to recognize them and make yourself open to their information.

Clairvoyance would not be possible at all where it not for the system of probabilities, which we have discussed here in other sessions. Now, this is an oversimplification, but we are not discussing probabilities here other than to show the dependence of clairvoyance on probabilities. It would not surprise you in the least if I said that “Everything is possible with certain exceptions.” It would surprise you if I said “Everything is possible because all action, all acts, all events and all possible objects that have ever existed, exist now and will exist in the future, all exist in psychological fact NOW in the system of probabilities upon which your earth is dependent. Since all realities are mental in origin and effects of mental action, then maybe you can get a feel of what I am saying here, your world system is one appearance that reality takes when created with your particular senses. Other beings from other systems alien to you, with different sensual preceptors would read the same data in different ways and create a totally different world.

Mediums and psychics can sometimes “see into the future”and predict future events that may or man not happen in your life only because they exist as one option in the probable system, yet to be materialized. Bottom line is that some psychics are more adept at sifting through YOUR probabilities and can psychically, through the process of elimination, narrow down the existing possibilities of something happening or not happening in your life, and sometimes they get it right. Of course, there is no guarantee that they will get it right, and that is why psychics are more often wrong than right since there is no such thing as pre-destination.

We have also discussed this subject before and whether you believe it or not, God has no advance plans for you and what you do, what you become, what probable events you choose to activate in your life, is YOUR choice and no god will make it for you. No god will ever force anything to happen to you, and although it may seem scandalous to you at this time, God does not have the ability to make any particular event happen in your life that you don’t want to happen. Most of you realize this, but because of old stale and outdated traditions, are reluctant to admit it. This is another of the truths that you know, but don’t really know you know yet. You will.

Since it is YOUR life, you have the closest contact with your future. Your future exists now, but at this stage of your development, you cannot understand how or why you choose to activate only one event at a time, and because of that, you must super-impose one event over another, kicking the current event aside to make room for a new present event. You are then relegating the present event to the past, making room for the next present event to materialize, while the future action that you will choose, lies dormant waiting to be actualized as YOUR future. Since these events already exist in fact, you can see that it is not like you have to predict a future event from nothing, but there is a lingering psychological awareness of a myriad of future possibilities existing as shadow events waiting in the wings, so to speak. As we have also said, all future choices of events will be actualized somewhere, somehow, sometime, whether you choose one to actualize or not. (Read articles of Probabilities)

So here is the rest of the story. As you grow, learn, gain knowledge, so also will your psychic abilities grow and what is now almost totally subconscious, will begin to surface and you will learn to not only utilize your intellect, but also rely more and more on you intuitions until you achieve a more resilient balance between your conscious awareness and your subconscious. You will begin to consciously utilize telepathic communication more than just verbal communication. You will become more aware of the possibility of all future events in your life, understanding the relevance of probabilities and learning how to create consciously what you now create unconsciously. What you consider “out of the ordinary” psychic abilities will rise to the surface and be accepted by the ego as beneficial to the whole identity.

Because of space constraints here, I have not discussed the psychic reality of astral projections, ghosts, aliens, fairies, remote viewing and other phenomena, but let me say that they all exist to some extent, but at this point in your evolution, you may have to dig deeper into your subconscious to shed some light. You have developed a very discriminating, tightly woven reality that precludes the recognition of many quite valid systems that you could see if you would not prohibit yourself from seeing them. They are all around you, filling even the space where you see nothing. Your type of conscious development, for some quite understandable reasons has caused you to purposely ignore other valid systems sharing your same time and space, but they are simply as I can put it, operating on different wave lengths, that could be accessed from your particular psychic stance. In the not so distance past, humankind was not so discriminating in focus and the existence of gnomes, fairies and other valid types of consciousness were known to exist.

There are ways to develop your psychic abilities and here are some hints: Look for something where there is nothing to see; your empty space is filled with other phenomena that is not within your normal range of perception. Write down a daily prediction and check to see the results, set aside a time to simply sit quietly and clear your mind of all thoughts. Send a telepathic thought to a close friend or relative, mark down the day and time, and check with them to see if they had any unusual feelings on that day and time. In prayer, meditation or before going to sleep, ask for communication from a survival(dead) personality. This will require practice, but remember, you DO have psychic abilities, but it’s up to you to develop them through practice. Most of all you must understand and believe that they do exist and expect positive results. Practice will never make perfect, but it will sure help in this respect.
