"Teach only Love, for that is what you are."A Course In Miracles (T-6.I.13:1)
Note: Optimal EFT assumes a familiaritywith this article and the Foundational Concepts that follow.
We are venturing way outside the box here.
And before we finish we will develop A New Psychology and a New Medicine that I think will cause the conventional books on these topics to be re-written. Beyond that, we will question virtually every belief on the planet including the belief that there is a planet.
When we are done you will have mountainous evidence that our bodies are mere fictions. They are mirages whose needs and limits are imaginary. We have always been alive and always will be. Birth, death and disease do not really exist and neither does time nor space. War, poverty and politics are also illusions as are medicine, mortgages and Madonna.
Further, there is only one of us. We think we are separated but, despite how real our separateness may seem, we are not divided into several billion bodies struggling for survival on a little sphere spinning through space.
Our reality is Love nothing more and nothing less. Everything else is a dream.
This is the literal Truth and, although it may seem like an empty religious rant at first, you will soon be exposed to its solid underpinnings. The clear evidence is before us. We no longer need raw faith. To back us up we now have (1) our own "unusual experiences," (2) the latest in scientific discoveries, including quantum physics and (3) a stunning new literary masterpiece (A Course in Miracles). We will explore them all.
We are climbingA Stairway to Miracles
We are finding the true Source of Miracles here, not magic. We are climbing A Stairway to Miracles that gently leads us toward the glorious existence that is our birthright. With each step, our expanding inner peace will produce richer relationships and our lives will become easier and more fulfilling. You will notice how resentments fade while laughter takes center stage and how your health improves as the anxieties of the world shift in meaning. Heres a description of one level of this state from A Course In Miracles.
"There is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems to be. You do not change appearance, though you smile more frequently. Your forehead is serene; your eyes are quiet. And the ones who walk the world as you do recognize their own. Yet those who have not yet perceived the way will recognize you also, and believe that you are like them, as you were before." (W-pI.155.1:1-5)
We are entering an extraordinary experience. I know, because I have been on this stairway for years. It has allowed me to reach millions of people through EFT (a therapy procedure I founded and spread throughout the world). It has multiplied my friendships, enhanced the real rewards from my business pursuits and deepened my love on many fronts. But Im not done yet. I still have much more to learn and, by sharing it with you, our joint efforts will bring growth to us all. This is what is meant by the spiritual term giving is receiving.
THE EVIDENCE: 1. Unusual Experiences
So, let's look at the evidence. We will first explore our "Unusual Experiences" category, starting with my spiritual awakening in 1988. A Course In Miracles calls it a Revelation and I am by no means the only one to have it. Others have shared their similar experiences with me but few discuss them much in public. Why? Because the general public finds them difficult to understand. Those we tell have nothing in their belief systems to make sense of these stories and so they tend to politely roll their eyes and do little or nothing with the startling message they just heard. But that's about to change. I want to create an impressive list of Revelations on this website that will lend clear credibility to this astonishing experience. So, if you've had such an event, please send me the details.After delving into the evidence from our Unusual Experiences we will then look at the Compelling Science involved. This will be followed by an in-depth look at A Course In Miracles.
Upon awakening one morning in 1988 I suddenly found myself in the glorious presence of our Creator. I was an unlikely recipient of this gift because, at the time, you would not have called me religious or spiritual. Further, there was no dramatic cause of this event, like being struck by lightning or praying endlessly for an audience with God. Instead, I managed to let go of this world out of an ongoing frustration and, as a result, the experience magically appeared.
Heres how it happened.
I was lying in bed mentally complaining about the massive list of things to do that I had piled upon myself and then emphatically thought
WHO NEEDS ALL THIS?These werent just idle words. I genuinely meant them. Their underlying meaning was more like, What a messed up, useless, overwhelming world this is. Let me outta here!
And with that I let go of this world and spontaneously flipped over to the other side. Please understand that this breathtaking state didnt just show up out of nowhere. Rather, it was as though it had always been there and was just waiting for me to shove the debris of my existing beliefs aside and allow its presence to appear. I had, at least temporarily, achieved the central goal of A Course In Miracles, namely....
"to remove the blocks to the awareness of Love's presence."
I was instantly in a state of wonderment awe bliss. It wasnt a hallucination or vision wherein I saw the ghostly figures of God, Jesus, Buddha or the like. Rather, it was a knowing a mental state wherein bodies and the trinkets of this world are meaningless. My poor engineers left brain was rendered useless and every belief I thought was true was turned upside down.
Quantum Physics points to this experience with terms such as A Field of Infinite Intelligence while A Course In Miracles calls it a Revelation. I call it God.
Two obvious truths emerged from this episode, both of which violate everything we believe. To me, they form the foundation of a new level of healing and, until we accept them, we are destined to vacillate between diseases and disasters (with islands of pleasure in between) until our fictional bodies finally deteriorate and die. Here are these truths:
(1) The state I reached is our true reality; it is lovingly waiting in the wings whenever we let go of this world AND
(2) The notion of being in a separated body is an illusion a dream a fiction that we have created.
I know this violates all our senses and every belief we have. But stay with me. We are just beginning.
In this spiritual state there is neither birth nor death. Nor is there hunger, poverty, war, disease, or any of the other limitations of life that show up in our Land of Separate Bodies. In fact, in this splendid space, these things are impossible. Instead, there is only a deep awareness of intense Love that is far beyond anything experienced on earth. Thats because it is not of this earth. Here is how A Course in Miracles describes this state...
"Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time, - perhaps a minute, maybe even less - when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe. Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity. Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times, and then be multiplied another hundred more. And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come." (W-pI.107.2:1-4.3:1)
This state creates an invulnerability because no weapon or calamity of any kind can touch it. This also means we live forever, although forever is a strange term because time does not exist in this condition. There is only an ecstatic NOW. Neither yesterday nor tomorrow exist. Neither do debts nor old age. Further, you do not need to worry about what other individuals think of you because there are no other individuals. There is only a spiritual Oneness within which we are all joined and belong in an elegant ethos of ecstasy.
While in this experience, my fondest desire was to stay there. But, alas, I soon came back into this nonsensical mirage that we call The World. But it has colored my life ever since. Like others having the privilege of this enlightenment, I have rarely discussed it publicly because it seems too woo-woo for most people. What few dialogues I had were usually polite and interesting, but went nowhere. But it is ridiculous to leave our true reality in the closet simply because it violates the erroneous beliefs we have about ourselves. As you will see, these beliefs are easily challengeable.
Now skeptics might ask, How do you know your experience wasnt just a delusion?
To which I would respond, How do you know that your experience of life in a separated body isnt just a delusion?
Therein lie the seeds of a great debate between those who have experienced this exquisite phenomenon and those who have not. Although you have every right to be skeptical, these writings will show the existence of this state and how it can be achieved, or at least approached, by all of us. Indeed, we MUST enter such a path because it is our answer to war, disease, poverty and the like.
Please know that these arent the mere musings of an energetic engineer who has become lost in his own mental meanderings. Indeed, I am not alone in this
