The Bible says: “The gift of God is eternal life.”
Immortality: “It’s impossible to be conscious of being unconscious.”
You are reading this book, so you are conscious (alive). This means you have always been conscious and always will be, because it is not possible for you to be aware of being dead (unconscious). You cannot be aware of not being aware, you cannot be conscious of being unconscious. You can be less conscious (sleep/coma), but not completely unconscious, because time would stand still for you. A billion years could pass, and you would not know it. You cannot be aware of any gaps in life; it is continuous and never ending from your own point of view.
You are immortal, because it is impossible for you not to be.
No cognizance is taken of the lapse of time after a person becomes unconscious in death. (Eccl. 9:5; Ps. 146:4)
Have you ever experienced anything other than life? You haven’t, because you cannot experience anything else; anything you experience is life. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, and consciousness cannot be created or destroyed for the same reason. It changes form. You cannot make nothing out of something. If you are conscious of life now, you are something. Your body is just a very temporary mortal container for your immortal consciousness.
The deductive logic above reveals that we are not our bodies. We know our bodies die, and we know consciousness cannot, thus our consciousness (what we are) cannot be our bodies. The Bible calls it our spirit or soul.
You will die physically, but you will be born again; being born happens, or you would not be here now. You were born into this life. It is what we know happens for certain to everyone living. There is no evidence anything else happens.
Why would we think anything else happens or even can happen? People are playing make believe. We are dealing with time and space that never ends. If we were born once, it will happen again; things repeat in nature. The only question is where, when, and what you will be reborn as, and we can know that too.
Consciousness: People are trying to understand the universe independent of consciousness (life), and it is the most important factor in the equation. Physics has been dead since Einstein.
Even if the people that are involved in the science of physics could understand the universe independent of life, it would not matter, because it will not change mankind, and that is the only thing that is going to make a real difference.
The universe as it relates to conscious life can be understood now. It is the ultimate truth, the truth that will transform mankind and the world.
People are spending billions of dollars on theoretic physics, and it is not going to change anything in a fundamental way for mankind. They have high hopes for a new multi-billion dollar particle collider. They may learn something, but it will not change mankind. Life has to be in the equation to know the ultimate truth.
Animals are conscious (alive) with or without a rational, thinking mind.
Many people think human beings are the only animal that is conscious. Is a dog or cat conscious? Where do you draw the line? Is a bird conscious? The truth is that all animal life is conscious and alive just like us. The only thing that makes humans different from other animals is that we have a mind that can think and reason. We can know the truth, and those that know rise above animals.
Intelligent design and evolution both happened.
Our true history: The hard evidence says we human beings (Homo Sapiens) evolved from other animals. There is very little physical difference between us and other animals. We have blood, bones, hearts, brains, skin and DNA in common. We behaved like them until just recently, and some people still do.
In addition to the evidence we have been digging up all over the world, our new understanding of the genetic code allows us to see where every animal came from and is now on the evolutionary ladder. There is no missing link now.
Crown of creation: Evolution is no longer just a theory; it has been proven true beyond a reasonable doubt. The problem is, even people that believe evolution is true disassociate themselves from the process. They somehow skipped all the lower forms of animal life and just started out as the “crown of creation” at the top of the evolutionary ladder. The evidence says that we evolved as life evolved.
In other words, you were a microbe, an insect, a fish, a dinosaur, an ape... You had to be lower animals to be a human now, just as you had to be a baby to be an adult now.
Someone has to be all the other types of animals. A consciousness (spirit) is in other animals. Other animals are alive just as you are and you know it.
The "you only live once" theory: Many people say that they do not believe in reincarnation; they believe when you die, you're dead. What about fish, clams, horses, bears, flies? People that say you only live once are saying some souls get to live just one life as a worm, and that is it for all of eternity.
Other people believe you are judged by a god after you die. Is the worm judged?
It is time to see and accept the truth the evidence supports.
There is no point in denying the truth; it does not go away. The truth is the truth. When there is overwhelming evidence that something happened or did not happen, it is the truth beyond a reasonable doubt to honest and rational people.
Truth will have no gods before it.
If our courts of law ignored the evidence the way religions do, we would still be living in a jungle. If doctors and hospitals did it, we would not go to the hospital.
The evidence = the truth. Religions say the truth is the way, but ignore it.
We convict people of crimes, sentence them to life in prison, and even execute them based on the evidence. We acknowledge that the evidence reveals the truth in every area of life except religion. The apocalypse is going to change that.
It is the truth that makes the law and medicine work. For religions to work the way that they promise to, they must also be based on the truth. It is the reason why Jesus uses the word “truth” more than any other word.
Jesus said, "I came into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice." John 18:37
The Bible says religion must be founded on rock. It is a metaphor meaning that religions must be founded on the truth, because it is as solid as a rock.
Why would someone else have to be all the other animal life and not us? Why would we just appear on earth now at the top when life is good? Do you really think someone else had to live through all the tough times of the past so that we could just show up and enjoy the fruits at the end? Does that make sense?
Arrogance: If you believe what the Bible says is true, you cannot believe we just appeared. The Bible says God is fair, so either the past did not happen, or we evolved. It also says not to be arrogant, that pride comes before a fall, and believing that we are separate from the rest of creation is pure arrogance.
It is time to see and accept the truth the evidence supports.
We have come a very, very long way, but we have a little further to go. The next and last step in our evolution is learning and accepting the truth of life, and this includes acknowledging our true past. Jesus said, “The truth makes you free.”
The ultimate truth frees us from the animal world we all evolved from.
The balance of physical things: There are two sides to every coin, and two sides to everything else physical, because one side creates the other side. It is the same with everything that happens. Birth-death, old-young, big-small, strong-weak, up-down, rich-poor, beginning-end, fast-slow, pain-pleasure, win-lose, day-night, full-empty, high-low, in-out, right-wrong, success-failure, fulfilled-emptiness, united-divided, give-receive, creation-destruction, positive-negative, etc.
Positive and negative forces moving in balance are the physical universe.
Everything physical (matter/energy) goes back and forth in balanced circles, cycles, or the equivalent. Even light and other forms of energy that appear to go straight out move up and down in balanced waves.
The physical universe has to move in perfect balance to exist.
Luck: Good luck and bad luck are the balance in action and the way it most affects our lives. Luck is manifested on many levels. There is the day-to-day luck, from little things like getting a good parking space or getting a bad one, to big things, like winning the lottery or finding out you have terminal cancer.
Then there is the long-term luck. You are lucky if you are born with good looks, money, health, talent and/or intelligence. You are unlucky if you are born unattractive, poor, sickly and/or without much talent or intelligence. Most people are somewhere in between the extremes, but it does not matter, because we are immortal. It will all balance out in time. Luck will move back and forth forever; everyone will get equal amounts of good and bad luck.
What goes around comes around.
The eternal mixer: The balance is the result of everything moving around randomly. Example: if you take a jar filled with black and white grains of sand and you shake it, it will turn gray and mix perfectly, and no matter how long you shake it, the black and white grains of sand will always stay evenly mixed. Time and random movement will always create a perfect balance of all physical things. It is as certain as night and day, and why we have a night and a day.
This is why on the Fourth of July in the US, 162 people will be killed in auto accidents, and every fourth, about the same amount are killed. An average of twelve auto accidents happen every minute; about six-thousand teenagers are killed in auto accidents every year in the US. It is the balance at work. If you flip a coin a thousand times, it will come up heads about half the time and tails about half the time. The odds of random events are predictable; this is why Las Vegas always makes a profit on gambling year after year. You can see the truth if you look at the big picture. You will see that disconnected random events are predictable, because they always balance.
The good news is, all your dreams are going to come true. The bad news is, so will all your nightmares, if you do not learn the truth of life.
Death is the great equalizer: If you are born with advantages, you can have more good times than bad times in your life, but when you die, you are reborn with disadvantages, and have more bad times than good times and vice versa. In the long run, no one has it better or worse than anyone else does, because life will always balance eventually. It is the nature of the universe we are part of, the universe we can see. Religious books say life is fair, and it is the truth.
Evolutionists are missing the intelligence behind it, the spiritual influence.
Eastern religions: You may think that I am talking about something that sounds like Buddhism or Hinduism. Parts of the truth are found in all religions, including Buddhism and other eastern religions, but they have also been distorted, misinterpreted, and misunderstood, just as the Bible has been. Eastern religions and philosophies do not work any better than the religions and philosophies of the west at revealing the ultimate truth. The truth in them has also been unseen by mankind, but it will be seen now by those who are ready to see it.
Truth will have no gods before it. The belief in truth begins with the doubt of all truths in which one has previously believed. Friedrich Nietzsche
Many Christians want to believe so badly they will ignore scientific evidence, reason, common sense and their own better judgment. Religions have perverted the meaning of the word "truth". The Webster's Dictionary definition below says what the word means:
truth: being in accord with fact or reality
Many things religious people say they believe are not in accord with fact or reality. They are myths, superstition, tradition, hope, not truth. To say it is truth is a lie. They are breaking one of the ten commandments, being dishonest hypocrites. They are deceivers, doing the work of Satan. This needs to change. True or false?
They think they are doing the will of god, when in truth, they are doing the will of the enemy of god, Satan, defined in the Bible as the great deceiver, the king of all lies.
A deceiver is defined in the Bible as the Devil, Satan.
Jesus said he came to reveal the truth. Thus, to be a true Christian (follower of Christ), you have to know and tell the truth.
It is not just religion; it is chasing money, power and fame when it always ends in death. People leave with just the animal mind that they came into this life with, but they cannot see this until the last few minutes of their lives. Honestly, what do all the kings, dictators, and rich and famous people that lived and died in the past have now? Can you see the actual truth?
If extreme pain and death were not real, the real truth would not matter, but they are real, and they cannot be overcome without the real truth.
You are going to die! Maybe today. This book makes you ready for it.
The truth is absolutely necessary: The major religions of the world have been with mankind for a long time. They have not transformed mankind or the world as they are supposed to do and promise to do. People need to see the unseen truth in them for them to do what they are intended to do. There is no other way.
Jesus said, “People honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain, teaching the precepts and principles of men.”
The followers of eastern religions are doing the same thing that the followers of western religions are doing. They believe in the myths, rituals and traditions, and are blind to the truth they contain. Parts of the ultimate truth are in all of them.
Christianity: This book focuses mostly on the unseen truth in western religions, primarily Christianity, but when you can see the truth in Christianity, you will be able to see it in all religions and everywhere else in life. The truth is at the core of many myths and legends, especially when it comes to religious myths.
Only the west has enough power: America and most of the western world is Christian, so the truth must be seen in Christianity before the world can change.
As you can see from the graph above, most of the world believes in a religion, and Christianity is the largest. Christianity, being in the western world, has most of the material wealth and power. That is why this book focuses on Christianity. The truth has to be seen in Christianity, or there is no hope for the human race.
The obvious is that which is never seen until someone expresses it simply.
Jesus said, “That which is hidden from the wise and educated has been revealed unto the open minded.”
Many educated people do not have open minds, and that is why they cannot see the truth as easily as people that are less educated, but more open minded.
The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
The truth about life is actually very simple; it is just hard to see for the first time.
When the solution is simple, God is answering.
Life: It all boils down to how you feel from moment to moment, how often you feel good and how often you feel bad, and it will be balanced like everything else physical. Your infinite past was balanced, and your infinite future will be too, unless you change from a physical being into a spiritual being. To change into a spiritual being, you just have to know the truth. It changes your point of view and your perspective of life so that you can start to live your life as a spiritual being.
Know it to do it: Our life does not have to be just fifty-fifty like the physical world, because our spiritual-self, our immortal-self, is not physical, and does not need to be balanced to exist. Our physical environment cannot fundamentally change, but we can. You just have to know it to do it.
Nothing is going to make any real difference in your life except separating yourself from the balanced physical world. It can and will change everything.
You separate yourself from the balance of physical life by seeing the truth.
The truth reveals that you do not need to experience the bad to have the good. The bad will still happen, but you will perceive it differently. The spirit is the only thing in the universe that does not need to balance. The knowledge of the balance changes you. It leads to your transition into a spiritual being.
Consequences: Having the knowledge of the balance does not remove all the consequences of behavior. The opposite is true; now you are responsible.
Jesus said, “When you make the two one, you will be called sons of men.”
Good/bad: One of the ways to make the two one is as follows: you take the two sides of life, the good and bad sides, and see them as one whole. You do this by understanding what the balancing force means. It means that all bad times will pass and be compensated for by an equal amount of good times. It also means that all good times will pass and be paid for with an equal amount of bad times.
We just want the positive without the negative. It is so obvious; there is no other real goal possible that makes any difference.
When you know the truth, you will enjoy the good times more and still avoid a bad time when you can, but when you cannot, the knowledge of the balance helps you get through the bad times. This is because you know that the worse it gets, the better it will be; it makes bad times almost enjoyable. More importantly, it centers your perspective of life. You see both sides of life, whole life.
Whole life = Holy life.
The knowledge of the balance takes away your reasons to be mad, sad, hate, worry, envy, be disappointed, it takes away all negative emotions and feelings.
The mind starts disappearing, and true life starts appearing.
As the mind gets smaller, life gets bigger. As the mind shrinks, life expands. When the mind disappears completely, your perception of life becomes clear. Eventually, you will only think when you have to, which is not very often. You will start living in the present, the eternal NOW.
God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It’s as simple as that. Joseph Campbell
The more you live in the present, the more fulfilling life gets. Time will slow down. You will see the magic and wonder of life you saw as a child, and you will experience it without the ignorance and all the negative emotions of childhood.
Jesus said you have to see life like a child to enter heaven.
Child-time: Time is subject to perception, and that is the reason it moves slower for children. Do you remember how long the summer used to last? Summer actually does last longer from a child's perspective. The more aware you are, the slower time travels, because each moment contains more life. The older you get, the stronger the mind gets, the less life you receive, and the faster time moves from your perspective and experience. A child receives more of life, because the mind has not completely taken over his/her life yet. The world you saw as a child is still here; you just cannot see it anymore. The world did not change; you changed. You became less aware. Kids still see it. It is revealed to babes.
You live more from birth to the age of ten than from age ten to a hundred.
When you know the truth, you become more aware again, and you will see life like you did then. Soon, you will be able to see life better than a child sees it or any animal has ever seen it. You will see the real world, an enchanted world.
The Bible says, “A child will show the way.” All children show the way.
The famous saying by Descartes, “I think therefore I am,” is wrong. The opposite is true. You are more conscious, more aware of life, more alive, and more your true self when you are not thinking. When you are thinking, you are your mind. When you are not thinking, you are your spiritual-self, your immortal self, your real self, your true self.
Most people are not aware of the fact that they have two different selves. You have a mind and a spirit, and though they seem like one thing, they are separate. The way to realize that this is true is to realize that something has to be listening to the thoughts created by your mind.
What is it that hears your thoughts?
Your two selves: There is the part of you that thinks, and the part that hears the thoughts. The thinking part is your mind; the part that hears the thoughts is your spiritual-self. You do not actually hear thoughts through your ears, because your mind is already inside your head. The point is that your spiritual-self receives the things the mind creates in a similar way to hearing them.
Check it out: Just ask yourself, what is it that is hearing the thoughts you are thinking right now? It is your spiritual-self, the same thing that receives all life. What is it that hears your voice when you talk?
What is it that receives all of life? Your spiritual self is represented by the inner circle shown in the drawings. To get to know your true self, your immortal, spiritual-self, the animal mind must be overcome.
You have to know true life to know your true self.
As shown in the drawing, mankind is currently living as their mind-self, and as a result, does not know their spiritual-self. “Know thy self,” as Socrates said.
Jesus said, “Whosoever knows himself is higher than the world.”
Perspective and perception: The same world is perceived differently by a frog and a cat, a cat and a dog, a dog and a human, a child and an adult, a woman and a man. You see something completely different than what Jesus saw.
We do not see things the way they are; we see things the way we are.
People see and experience life through their own mind and senses, from their own unique perspective and awareness level. Jesus saw the world in a different way than most people do now, because he saw true life, divine life.
The physical world will never change; it cannot change and still exist, but the way you perceive it can. This is the secret to being fulfilled and happy all the time. Perception and perspective determine how clearly and truly you see life, and how fulfilling or unfulfilling life is for you. The truth makes it possible to see it clearly.
It's not what you look at that matters; it's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
All animals other than man live in the present and are more fulfilled because they have less mind blocking life, but they are stuck with the perspective and perception they are born with. We can greatly improve ours by learning the truth.
All the problems we have stem from people not knowing the ultimate truth.
Unhappy: People look around and think; why are there so many people that are unhappy? We have progressed so far, yet people are still unhappy. Why isn’t this world the wonderful place it could be? Changing the world doesn’t change us.
It does not matter how much we progress materially; it will not change anything. Only learning and seeing the truth will change us, and thus change everything.
The truth transforms a mortal man into a divine, immortal spiritual being.
It does this by showing you what you truly are, and that changes everything. The truth does the same thing for the way we see the world, and for the same reason. It shows you life clearly; it shows you true life for the first time.
True life is perfect: You can see and experience a perfect life, because that is the way life actually is. It is only our minds that mess it up.
It is hard to believe from your current perspective and level of awareness, but it is true. It is your own mind that makes life imperfect. The universe has to be perfect to exist. The universe would come apart and not exist long if it was not perfect.
You do not have to believe it; you can know it.
The present: It is interesting that the “NOW" is called the “present.” The present is the ultimate gift; it is the gift of truth and life. You are being given the present every second, and you will receive it forever. God is giving you the present; accept it. The present is the only thing that exists, the only thing you are ever conscious of. Your life is a series of presents moving through time. The future does not exist until it becomes the present.
Life is one perpetual present.
Creation is happening now: Your body, mind, and the world around it are being created from microsecond to microsecond. Things may appear the same, but they are not; everything is constantly changing and being re-created. God/life/nature is creating our life and our world from moment to moment. Life and everything in it is always new.
The Bible says, “Behold, I make all things new.”
Many prophets have said you have to enjoy the journey and be fulfilled by the journey. This is because the journey is the destination. Destinations are always the end of one journey and the beginning of another. Life is a never-ending journey and a never-ending destination. It is an endless circle. A spiritual being lives in the center of the circle of life by seeing it all.
When you become aware of creation, you become aware of the creator.
If you cannot be fulfilled by the present, you are in real trouble, because there is nothing else. The present is your life, all of it. Most people think that they are not good looking enough, young enough, thin enough, or rich enough, etc.
The present has to be our goal, because it is the only thing that exists.
Most people are in real trouble, because they do not know the truth, and as a result, they are missing most of their life. They live on the edge of the circle and just go around and around forever, lost in the illusions of their minds.
Greener grass: The concept of past and future and a distorted perception of the present keeps people running for the greener grass on the other side of the fence. These people miss the present in the process.
Chasing the horizon: It is like running after the horizon; the faster you go, the faster it moves away from you. One day you realize that you are standing on it. What you were running after is where you already are, and always will be.
Be where you are: Every place you have been, all the places you have lived and stayed at, the houses, hotels, motels, resorts, businesses, someone is there right now. Someone is on every street and freeway, at every river, mountain and lake. Someone is looking at the Statue of Liberty right now. People are eating at all the restaurants. People are traveling in boats, planes, cars, trucks, buses right now. People are having sex. People are fighting and being murdered. People are everywhere they go, doing everything they can do at this moment. To be at one place, doing one thing, means you are missing all of the other places and things. It is foolish to think you are missing anything. To do one thing is to miss another. The only way to miss out is to miss the present. This understanding is important, because a big problem is people wanting to be somewhere besides where they are, doing something besides what they are doing, which is impossible.
Thus, it is foolish to think you are missing anything or to want to be anywhere except where you are, no matter where it is or what you are doing. What goes around comes around. As John Lennon says in the song Instant Karma, “Why on earth are you there, when you're everywhere, going to get your share.”
All people want is what is in the present, but they do not know it, because they have never opened it. Almost no one knows what the present really is.
The big tease: Your mind will open up part way from time to time to give you a taste of true life, and then take it away. It will attach the open moments to things that are hard to do all the time, like things that cost a lot of money, or that are difficult or dangerous, or that it considers new or special. Your mind makes you pay for life in one way or another and will never let you have any true life for free.
The truth is complete fulfillment, is always free, and always available.
Fulfilled: It is the way we feel when our minds are completely open to life; we become “filled” with life. Being filled with life makes you feel the way you want to feel all the time. It is true happiness.
Doctors say that you feel good or happy because of the release of chemicals in your brain that make you feel good. This is true; chemicals such as endorphins, adrenaline, serotonin, and dopamine make you feel good, but they do it by allowing you to feel a little true life.
Like all drugs, the effect is temporary and has a balancing down side. The ultimate truth is not temporary and has no down side. No drugs are necessary.
Life is like light: Light contains all the colors of the rainbow, but we only see it as white. Life contains everything you can sense in every moment, but your mind only lets you sense certain things, and only when certain things happen.
When you see all of life together, it is like seeing all colors together. Just as all the colors seen together create something completely different (white light), all of life received together creates something completely different and unexpected.
If you mix the three primary colors, blue, yellow and red, you do not get white, but you do when it comes in the form of light. It is the same with parts of life. You would think if you received them all at once, it would be sensory overload, but the opposite happens. You receive the most pure and clear experience possible.
Your 5 senses are more than the sum of their parts. Together, completely open, they open a door to a new unseen world; they reveal true life.
The mind cannot create life; it can just manipulate what already exists.
See the light: When the mind is out of the way and you can receive all of life, it manifests as the ultimate joy. It is divine joy, and it is beyond any mortal pleasure possible. When you know the truth, you see the light as the Bible says; you see true life. It is much more than joy; the best word to describe it is bliss.
You do not go around smiling and laughing all the time. You do not appear to be much different to other people, but you see everything differently.
When you know the truth, you live in a constant state of grace.
In this animal realm, physical pain and pleasure will come and go, but you can always be filled with life (fulfilled) once you know the truth, because you know it is all God.
Jesus said, “I have come that you may be filled with the fullness of God.”
Freedom: If you tie your fulfillment to things that happen in your environment, you are at the mercy of the constantly changing environment. You will only get a taste of fulfillment when things go your way, when you win or get what you want.
Spiritual people are fulfilled when they lose. If you do not attach your fulfillment to what happens in your environment, you can be fulfilled all the time.
It is mental, and you can control your mental-self, but you cannot control your environment. True freedom is being able to be fulfilled independent of what happens in the environment. Almost no one on earth is free now.
It's not what you look at that matters; it's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
Instant gratification: Why put requirements on feeling good? True life is being given to us all the time; we just have to let it in all the time.
It is instant and complete gratification that costs nothing.
The secret: Most people know you do not need “things” or things to happen to be happy (be fulfilled), but most people do not know how it works. The secret is opening your mind. Without thought and negative emotions, the same thing happens that happens when you get what you think you want.
You become as sensual as you can possibly be; you become your senses.
You can feel better than you would feel if you just won the lottery everyday. Why not? It is just a state of mind or state of no mind. It is your life; just take what is coming to you. You can be fulfilled whenever you want. You deserve it.
It is what Jesus wanted us to have; it is the abundant life he is talking about. Everything he says has one purpose, and that is to reveal true life to us.
Being fulfilled, being filled by life all the time, is the true goal of mankind.
Everything that people do directly and indirectly, good and bad, is to be fulfilled by life. Once you know the truth, you can skip all the things, and just be fulfilled.
Get what you want: You can feel like you are getting what you want all the time, because you really are; you just don’t know it yet.
When you know the truth, you see the divine in everything; you see life.
Know you know: It is how you know if you know the truth. If you are fulfilled, you know it. If you are not completely fulfilled, you do not know it or understand it, so you need to keep studying until you do know it.
Jesus said, “Therefore I say that if one is unified, one will be filled with light, but if one is divided, one will be filled with darkness.”
It is a good example of Jesus using the word light as a metaphor for true life. He is saying if you are unified with God/life, you are fulfilled. If not, you are empty.
Jesus said, “When you make the two one, you will be called sons of men.”
Getting your mind out of the way and reuniting your spirit with the spirit of God is another way you make the two one. There are many ways, but this is the biggie.
When you know the truth, your mind turns off, and you are fulfilled no matter what is happening in your environment, even when you are experiencing physical pain. Jesus was more fulfilled in his worst moments on the cross than mankind is in the best moments of their lives.
People want everything, and you can have everything if you know the truth.
Jesus said “I am poor, but I have everything.”
Mind disease: Our overbearing minds are like a disease, and many diseases make us feel bad. The mind, by separating us from true life, does not let us feel nearly as good as we should. The mind prevents us from being unified with life.
We just need a large dose of the truth to cure it and eradicate it from the earth, but we are doing the opposite, and we are doing things that just make us more sick.
This book is not meant to be entertaining, a good read like most books. It is meant to transform people from unfulfilled, mortal animals into completely fulfilled, immortal spiritual beings. It makes all of life entertaining forever.
How a medicine tastes doesn’t matter; it is what it does that saves your life.
Mankind has a very contagious form of a sleeping sickness. The truth is the cure, but at first, it does not taste as good as fantasy, so no one is taking it.
The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing. Oscar Wilde
Humankind cannot stand very much reality.
Fantasy vs. reality: The mind is trying to replace reality with fantasy. Mostly with television, but there are also movies, video games, the Internet, etc. This book is competing with all the above. The truth in written form is not very entertaining.
The only reason fantasy is doing so well is that almost no one knows what reality is. People do not have a clue how wonderful, fascinating and enchanting true life really is. People are living in a perpetual daydream that blocks true life.
Jesus said, "I have come so that you might have life, for the way of mortals is a living death.”
Jesus is saying that the human race is spiritually dead. People are literally dead to reality/true life, and the more they get into fantasy, the more dead they become. If we do not turn it around very soon, people will live most of their short life in a man-made fantasy world.
The main argument for reality is that it is real. It is also much more fulfilling than any fantasy is or can be, but only when you can see it clearly.
How much better is reality? It is being really alive vs. being really dead.
3D: True life has real height, width and depth. TV is just 2D, or two-dimensional. Fantasy will never be able to compete with true life once true life is seen as it truly is. Reality is infinite; it is everything. It is infinitely more than anything else is. You really live and really die only in the real world. There is good, great, and real.
Our world is much more enchanting and exciting than any fantasy world.
The problem is that fantasy is better than the life people are currently living, so fantasy is becoming more and more popular.
If you do not live in the present, fantasy is better. If you live in the present, fantasy is not even close. Religion the way it is currently interpreted is just another fantasy that people say is true.
Everyone knows the same truth; what makes us different is how we choose to distort it. Woody Allen
Fear of death: Mankind is more afraid of death than any other animal. We are because we know it is going to happen, and other animals do not. This knowledge that only mankind has is a double-edged sword, a curse and a blessing. It is a very good thing, because our knowledge that death is going to happen makes us the only animal that has a chance to overcome death. However, the fear of death also causes people to try to escape reality (which is impossible) and get into fantasies and myths.
People are doing the opposite of what they should be doing. Instead of trying to escape life, we need to get into life completely. It is the only way to overcome the fear of death and death itself. If you get into life completely, you learn the truth and transcend fear and death. You become eternal life.
Jesus said, "I am in all things, yet I am beyond all things.”
You become all things, yet are beyond all things.
Jesus said, "I am in this world, but not of this world." It can be the same for you.
You become all things, because you live totally in the present, but are beyond all things, because you also live in immortality and infinity at the same time. You live in your temporary body, but know you are immortal. You live within the range of what you can see and sense, but are aware everything is infinite.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at anytime. Mark Twain
Life is perfect and absolutely secure and fulfilling in and of itself. People do not know what they are missing. They are literally missing everything for nothing.
Empty: As shown in the drawing, the mind makes it impossible to know reality (true life) and to be fulfilled. The present with the mind blocking and distorting it is not fulfilling. It leaves you empty and full of desire for something to fill the emptiness. The things the mind does to try to fill the void just block life more. The more people run towards what they think they want, the more they miss it. What they think is the solution to the problem is the cause of the problem.
Something missing: People feel that something is missing, because something is missing. Their God-given, divine life is missing.
I am the way, the truth and the life.
No one goes to the father except through me.
Jesus, John 14:6
He is literally saying that he is the truth and the life. He does not say he is a man or God; he says he is truth and life. How could it be more clear or direct?
Jesus is saying: If you know the truth and the life, you know him.
Knowing the truth and true life (a.k.a. Jesus) is the way.
Jesus also says you have to go through him to get to God/heaven. In other words, you have to know the truth and the life before you can know God.
The truth + the life = God.
Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
Jesus is saying that the truth will set you free from your own mind, your false self. Jesus said, “I have overcome the world.” Jesus is saying the truth will overcome deception, the mind of the world.
Jesus said, "Your minds must be cleared of the falsehoods of this realm if you are to be taught Eternal Truth."
Christians that believe a bearded man in a sheet and sandals will greet them when they die are going to be disappointed. That Jesus, the man Jesus, no longer exists, but the truth and the life, the spiritual Jesus, does exist.
Jesus said, “The world will see me no more, but you will see me, because I live, you will live also, you are in me and I am in you.”
Jesus said, “I am in spirit and truth.” Again, what he says is perfectly clear.
The Bible says: You shall be like Jesus, for you shall see him as he is.
False Christians: People who do not know the truth and the life cannot call themselves Christians. Jesus says you have to know the truth and life to know him, be like him. It is what the Bible says literally; it is not an interpretation.
People that worship an image of a dead man do not know the truth and life.
Jesus said, “People honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain, teaching the precepts and principles of men.”
The Bible says that people that worshipped him according to the teaching, the precepts, and principles of men will hear this from God after they die: “I never knew you; depart from me.”
Go to heaven: The saying above is metaphorical and will not literally happen, but it says that the people that believe they know Jesus and God now really do not. The saying says that the people who think they know, but do not know Jesus and God now, will not be with God after they die; they will not go to heaven.
It says that you can and must know God now to go to heaven after you die.
Jesus said, "Take heed of the living one while you are alive, lest you die and seek to see him and be unable to do so."
How can you call yourself a Christian if you do not know what Jesus says he is? People are worshiping the dead Jesus, because they do not know the living one.
Jesus = the truth and the life. The truth and the life = the present, the NOW.
They said to Jesus: Tell us who you are, so that we can believe you. Jesus replied: “You analyze the appearance of the sky and the Earth, but you don’t recognize what is right in front of you, you don’t know the nature of the present moment.”
Once again, he makes it clear that he is the present, the truth and the life.
Jesus is with everyone now. He always has been and always will be. If you want to meet Jesus (truth/life), just open your mind, open your present.
Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at your door and knock; open the door and I will come to you.”
The door: Your mind is like a door, and it is currently closed. You have to have a truly open mind to learn the truth and experience the life (the present). Most people, even biblical scholars, will be learning what Jesus is saying for the first time when they read this book. They have been deceived by the devil/mind. Many people believe that they can only see God after they die. This is because their minds will not let them see that God is in the present, is the present.
Jesus said, “He who drinks from my mouth will become as I am and I will become he and the hidden things will be revealed to him.”
In other words, once you understand what Jesus is saying, God and true life will be revealed to you. It is a fact.
The Bible says, “God is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end, that which was, that which is now, and that which will be.”
Many statements in the Bible are the literal truth: The words above are an example of a statement that is literally true. How could it be clearer?
The Bible says that God is omnipresent, that God is everywhere all the time. It literally says God is life and everything in it.
Jesus said, “I have come, that you may be filled with the fullness of God.”
In other words, he is saying he came so that we may be filled with divine life.
I am with you, sayeth the Lord. That statement says God is HERE NOW.
God/life: There is a God that creates and controls everything; God manifests as life itself. God is life; life is the only thing that is omnipresent.
The Bible says that the path to destruction is wide, and narrow is the gate that leads to life. Matthew 7: 13-14
Why doesn’t it say “narrow is the gate to heaven or God?”
It says “life,” doesn’t it?
I often use “God/life” to describe this ultimate power of the universe. That way, no one will think I am referring to the old man in the sky, or any other outdated, misleading, false symbol or graven image that people picture as God.
Good way to look at life: It is not just a good way to look at life; it is the only way that you can see life truly and live life truly. It is the way. Religious people say there is a God, and atheists say that there is no God, but they are both missing the truth and the life. They are both missing what Jesus says he is.
Jesus said, “Heaven is spread upon the earth and men do not see it.”
Heaven is in most ancient religions for a reason. It is possible, and we always knew it on a subconscious level, even in the distant past. We just had to progress to the point we are reaching now before we could see what heaven actually is, and how it really works. The key to heaven is the ultimate truth.
Jesus said you must be born again to see heaven.
Jesus said you must be born of spirit to get to heaven.
When you know the truth of life, you are born into a new, spiritual world.
Truth you can check: It is the kind of truth that once revealed, becomes as matter of fact as the ground and as useful as food. It is the kind of truth that can make hate and war as unnecessary as ignorance. It is the only “real” truth.
I do not believe in God or Jesus. I know them. I know the truth and the life.
I do not believe in Jesus or what Jesus says. I do not have to; I have done my homework and checked it out. I know the things he has said are true. The things I cannot check myself directly such as life after death, I use the tools (logic/reason) God/life gave me to know. You only have to believe in something you do not know. Believing is not the goal; knowing is the goal. You have to know God.
Jesus said, “I am the truth and the life,” not I am the myth and the life.
Jesus said, “I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth.”
You cannot go to heaven if you believe in a myth, because you do not know the truth, and as Jesus says, you have to know the truth to get to heaven.
That which is: The literal meaning of the word “truth” is “that which is.”
The living truth = that which is.
That which is = the present.
That which is = God.
“GOD” is an ancient word that literally means “That Which Is.” G stands for “that,” O stands for “which” and D stands for “is.” God is “that which is.”
The truth of the past = that which was. The truth of the future = that which will be. You can only truly know “that which is,” because it is the only thing that exists. The past is a memory or a story. The future is just an educated guess. You can only know the true past and what the true future will be by knowing “that which is possible.” If you know how life works, God works, you know everything.
Definition of ultimate truth: It is knowing the truth of life. It is knowing the fundamental, eternal laws of Nature (God), and the nature of the mind which distorts and hides it. It is an accurate and complete understanding of “that which is,” or God. When you know that which is, you know God.
You do not and cannot understand every detail of life and do not have to. You just have to understand the big picture, the fundamental nature of life.
This truth never changes, because “that which is” can never change. It cannot change and exist. When you know life completely, you become life completely.
The Bible says that God describes himself as “I am as I am.” That is clear.
In other words, God is saying he is “that which is.” God is life itself.
A man should look for what is and not for what he thinks should be.
Omnipresent: If you believe in the Bible, why would you think you have to wait until after you die to see God? The Bible says that God is omnipresent. Either you do not really believe in the Bible, or you have not really read what it says.
The millions of people that say they believe in the Bible really don’t. You have to believe in what the Bible actually says to believe in the Bible.
From Luke in the Bible, it says "the kingdom of God is inside everyone." It is inside everyone that knows the ultimate truth and is open to God/life, but not people that do not know the ultimate truth and that are closed to God/life.
The Bible says that God is here now, and when you are truly here now, you are with God. It is that simple. God is here now; it is mankind that is not here now.
Jesus said, "Heaven is inside you and all around you.” That says it all.
Denying Jesus, denying God: People who ignore the truth, deny the truth, are ignoring and denying Jesus and God. Jesus says he is the truth; true or false?
Greatest sin: When you deny the truth, you are denying God, because God is the truth. Doing it intentionally when you know better is the greatest possible sin, yet all religions and just about everyone else are currently doing it.
Jesus said, “The truth is hidden until you have eyes that will see and ears that will hear.”
Sin: People do not even know the meaning of the words in the Bible. Example: The word “sin” means to “miss the mark.” The word comes from ancient Greek, and it refers to an arrow missing the target. It has nothing to do with breaking religious or moral rules. “Christian” means to be Christ-like, not to just praise and worship an image of the way Jesus may have looked two-thousand years ago. That is idol worship of a graven image, and the Bible says not to do it.
The word “worship” means “worth-ship.” The best way to show how much God is worth to you is by just accepting the present God/life is creating and trying to give to you. Just accept the gift, accept the truth and the life that is in every moment.
The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death.”
"The sinful mind of man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace." Romans 8:6
It is true, when you miss the mark, miss the present, you are dead to true life.
Self-evident: There is nothing easier to know than the truth, because it is life itself. It is nothing more and nothing less. It is the present.
Being is the great explainer.
Henry David Thoreau
It is all true: The truth is simply everything there is, everything that truly exists. If it does not exist, it is not the truth; if it does, it is. “That which is” is everything except for the deceptions created by the mind, and they are only real to you when you let them be. The truth is life, so everything is the truth; it is all true.
The truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. Winston Churchill
If the mind were not hiding the truth, everyone would know it immediately. The truth is within you and all around you, just as Jesus said.
Jesus said to love the truth. If you do, faith will not be good enough for you, and the Bible says you must “know” God to be with God now. It is now or never.
Faith; not wanting to know what is true.
He is right about that for some people. Faith is also for people that do not know the truth, but want to. You cannot love the truth when you do not know it.
You have to start with faith as the Bible says, but not faith in a myth.
Faith: The faith the Bible is taking about is faith you will learn the truth and the life. If you have faith you will know it, you will know it soon. If you have faith in the truth and life, you have faith in Jesus, because he says he is the truth and life.
You have to have faith in the truth and the life to have faith in Jesus.
Having faith or belief in a myth will not help you and will hurt you, because it makes you less receptive to learning the truth. It is the worst thing you can do.
Jesus said, “Whoever finds the correct interpretation of what I am saying will find eternal life.” Why would he say it if he were not being misinterpreted?
You have to have faith and believe in the actual truth, the truth that makes sense, the truth you can check yourself in the real world, in God’s world, in the present.
What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not the goal.
The bridge: When you have faith in the truth and the life, you do not need it long, because you will know it soon. Faith is not supposed to be a permanent way of life. Faith is just a bridge to the truth and the life.
I don’t have to have faith; I have experience.
Once you know the truth and the life, you no longer need faith, because you have what you had faith in. You are where you want to be, and you always will be.
Faith in the truth is necessary to get you through any trials and tribulations you may have to get past when making the transition into a spiritual being.
The Bible says that those who believe in Jesus will have eternal life.
In other words, those who believe in the truth and the life will have the truth and the life. Jesus = the truth the life. Those are his words, not mine. Jesus says you have to believe in the truth and the life to get eternal life.
Faith in the truth and the life is essential until you know the truth and the life. If you have faith you will know, you will know; if not in this life, you will in the next.
It is not true just because Jesus said it; it is true because it has to be true. The truth and the life is the only way, because nothing else truly exists.
Having faith in just the name Jesus and an image of the way you think he looked two-thousand years ago is not the way. That is a graven image, and one of the ten commandments says not to worship a graven image, so why do people that call themselves Christians and say they believe in the Bible do it?
It is just a fantasy created by the mind. You have to see Jesus the way he says he is now. Jesus said, “I am in spirit and truth,” “I am the truth and the life.” If you have faith in what Jesus says he is, you have the faith that will get you to heaven.
Faith now: Some people’s minds will be too strong for them to overcome the control of their animal mind before the body they have now dies or is killed, so faith in the real thing, not a myth, is essential to have right now. It is the way.
Having faith in the truth and the life is all most people will be able to truly have in this world because of the influence of other minds, but as Jesus said, faith in him is all you need to get to heaven in the next life.
All you have to do is try your best (help the truth) and have faith the truth and the life is the way to go to heaven when you die, just as Jesus says.
Follow Jesus: You express your faith by seeking the truth and the life at all times. You follow Jesus by trying your best to spread the truth and the life, even if all you have yourself is faith it is the way, and no one understands you. You just need faith in the truth and the life in this life to get heaven in the next, and it will come quicker than people think.
You have true faith right now if you have faith in the truth and the life.
Hope/belief: Believing and hoping something is true or going to be true does not make it true if you do not start with the real truth. It is the truth, or it is not. There is no way to make something that is not true, true.
Hope is a waking dream.
Faith in faith: In and of itself, belief, faith, hope, wishing, good luck charms, holy relics, symbols, positive thinking, good intentions, praying, curses, voodoo, magic spells, etc. do not do anything except make people feel like they have some control over life. It is just a coping strategy.
If you believe a fairytale or myth is true, you will not live happily ever after.
People who currently have faith and belief in a myth are a force against the truth and the life. They are the deceived, and if they pass it on, are the deceivers.
The people that think they are closest to God and doing God’s work are actually the farthest away and doing the devil’s work, the work of the deceiver.
In the past, the truth could not be known by most people, so faith was all they could have. They will be forgiven for deceiving people if they change now. People’s faith in myths was necessary to get us to where we are now, but now that the truth is revealed, faith is just a bridge to knowing.
Saying that you see things that do not exist is a sin, the worst sin possible. It is giving false witness, which is against one of the ten commandments.
The real truth unites people; it does not divide them. It makes sense and applies to everyone, everywhere, all the time. It creates clarity, not confusion. The truth leads to real equality, freedom, peace, love and understanding. The real truth only asks you to believe in something you can check for yourself.
Anyone that cares about the truth enough to check what it is with their own eyes will know the truth. Those that do not care will be lost and deserve to be lost.
Believing what you are told: You should not have to take someone else’s word for anything as serious and important as the truth about life and death. People lie, misunderstand, distort, misinterpret and exaggerate. People can just be wrong, or have schizophrenia and hear voices that they believe come from God.
Anyone who cares about the truth enough to check what it is will know the truth. Those who do not care enough will not learn the truth and will be lost and deserve to be lost.
Monkey see, monkey do: Most people just tell people what they have been told the truth is. They just accept what others say the truth is, especially if it is what people have been accepting as the truth for thousands of years. It is monkey see, monkey do.
Second-hand truth should not be believed or repeated without checking it out for yourself. The age of playing follow the leader is ending now. Second-hand truth is called hearsay in a court of law, and it is not admissible for an important reason; it has proven not to be a dependable source of the truth.
What could be more irresponsible than saying something is true without knowing beyond a reasonable doubt that it is true? Billions of people are doing it. Religion is life and death, and it is even more important to be sure something is true, because your current life is based on it, and your immortal life depends on it.
Do not believe what anyone says, including me; check things yourself. You have to see the truth yourself in life itself to know it.
You are at what could be the end of a very long and difficult quest. You now have the opportunity to complete the quest and leave the animal realm forever.
The only real difference between mankind and other animals is our ability to reason and think. Thus, reason has to be what we have to use to evolve further. We have to use what sets us apart from other animals.
The truth: You now know “the truth” part of the truth and the life. There are only five fundamental things you need to know and they are:
1. Our true history.
2. You are immortal.
3. Everything will balance.
4. You are a spiritual being.
5. The present (life) is God.
The truth of the balance is most clear at the edges of physical reality. If you look at the biggest things in the universe, the stars and planets, you will see that they are all going in balanced circles (orbiting) around each other. If you look at the smallest things that make up all matter and atoms, you will see the same thing; electrons going in circles around a nucleus. The edges reveal clearly the fundamental nature of our reality. Everything is going around in circles.
As you become more aware, you begin to see all physical things, in between the biggest and smallest, are doing the same thing in one way or another. Soon it will be as clear to you as night and day, and you will know the nature of everything.
What is said in this book is not just a theory; it is what the evidence says. It is truth you can check, and that makes it the real truth and the only truth.
You just have to check it out for yourself so you know you know it and remember it until it sinks in. It has to go deep into your subconscious. You have to see the truth in every moment without thinking about it; you have to know it intuitively.
The greatest present: For the first time in history, the first time in our 700 million years on this planet, we can know life, know what we are, where we come from, and where we are going. We have to take advantage of this brief opportunity. It has been a long time coming and will be a long time gone. This book will give you the power to change our present course to one that leads to a place without pain, fear or suffering, a place some western religions call heaven.
LIFE KNOWING LIFE
You have to know the ultimate truth before you can know the ultimate life.
The key truth is the knowledge of the balancing opposites, because you can see this truth in action everywhere you look. When you see it clearly, you know it. Knowing the divine balance is the key, because your mind will realize it is not needed much, that it cannot really make a fundamental difference except to open up. When it does, the other part of the ultimate truth becomes self-evident.
You now know “the truth.” Now all you need to know is “the life.”
