PhD. clearly shows how most organized religions are far from the
mark of the universal truths of life and the spirit realm. That book
also helps give us a better understanding to the purpose of life.
Richard Bach put this quite
well in his book called 'Illusions', so I will not rehash his writings
here. Check out his books called: 'Johnathan Livingston Seagull' and
'One'. Also see 'Strangers in a Strange Land' by
Robert A. Heinlein,
and 'Book of Shadows' by Phyllis Curott.
I am fascinated with movies that depict the ultimate in Virtual Reality (VR). I find it ironic in these days how obsessed we with movies in general, since we are living the ultimate VR right now. It is like how in a good movie you are catapulted into the action of the movie, and seem to forget that you are in a movie theater, as though you are living it. Well, having a complete memory loss of our previous lives and experiences throws us so deep into this VR experience that we get completely caught up in the drama of it.
I'm not saying that spending time watching movies is a waste of time. It just seems odd to be doing VR inside of VR, and in a few cases, doing VR inside that VR, like in 'Total Recall' How many layers deep can you go? <LOL>
Imagine if you will, being up in heaven before you came down here, surrounded in the warm blanket of the Devine's love, and earning the right to a little vacation time on Club Earth. This is the ultimate in recreation, with full senseround. We have all the five senses, taste, touch, smell, along with sight, and sound of video.
I still believe it very much matters what kind of things we do while here. We are here with our brothers and sisters in this big play-ground. Do you want to go back home to find Sally saying: "Dad, Jimmy hurt me. He hurt me real bad too". And you guessed it, you are Jimmy.
There are people who have had near death experiences who were career driven and motivated by success and money. But after having died and come back, that motivation is dead in them. All they are interested in is family and friends. That to me is more divine than any thing ever written. I just need to try and tap into that type of mentality, without the advantage of having that reminder of what we are here for.
We are all one in our connection to the divine. To hurt our fellow man is to hurt ourselves.
