But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: Matthew 6:20
You may be thinking, why is a guy that writes a book called The Present, a book that says fantasies are bad, so into movie fantasies?
The reason is the book is written about a different place, a place religions call heaven. The devil (animal mind) currently owns this world, and the world where you can live in the present a lot of the time does not exist yet. Since I cannot live in the present much yet, I fantasize about it until I can live in it. There is a difference between my fantasies and the fantasies that most people have. My fantasies are possible, and thus can come true.
Fantasy is OK after you know the truth of life, but not before you know it.
There is a belief that if you just believe something is true, have enough faith it is true or can become true, it will become real here or in your next life after you die. This is part right. Most beliefs or faiths contain some truth. That is the case with this one. A faith or belief can and will come true if it is possible, if it can happen in God's universe, not just in your imagination.
Most people are not going to see their beliefs come true. Christianity in its current form, for example, is a belief that cannot come true. For a belief or faith to come true, it has be within the laws of nature that Newton and Einstein have revealed, and my book reveals. My beliefs and faith, my fantasies are going to come true, because they can work in reality. A better word is vision. My vision of the future can and will come true, at least for me and the people that share my vision and help to spread it.
I send everyone a letter after they read my book that says the next step is to become a prophet. A prophet is someone that predicts or prophesies the future. It may not be the future for everyone, but it will be for the person envisioning it, and those that can see the same vision and want it bad enough to devote their life and resources to making it happen.
My books are a vision. Many people on that comments list on the contest site think they know what my books are about, but they really do not know. They think I am talking about here now. I am not, but I have to let them think that so they will stay interested long enough for them to stay on the path when they discover the truth. I am a fisher of men and women, and it is like bait.
I say this in the book; I talk about using the devil against the devil, or telling untruths in order to get an important truth across that cannot be got across any other way, but many people ignore it, so they think I am talking about now. The movies on this list do it, as well as many novels. The means are justified if the means do not hurt anyone, even if you fail to get the big truth across. Thus, I let people believe that they can live in eternal bliss here and now, when I know it is not the truth. The end justifies the means. It is a good lie; Jesus and all prophets past and present that are trying to spread the divine truth do it. You have to fight fire with fire, lies with lies.
Do not get me wrong, your life now does get much better than most people in the devil's world, but this is not heaven, and to try and live like it is, is a waste of time and foolish. It will also make it impossible for it to come true in the future.
It is possible for this world to change and become a heaven in my lifespan, and I work at making that happen, but the odds are against it. The Bible says it will come in the blink of an eye, but I do not count on it. I know how long we have been waiting, working, evolving, so I would not be surprised if it takes one or even a few more lifespans to get to heaven.
The important thing is to have the vision; in other words, to know where you are going. If you do not know where you are going, you will not get to a heaven; you will be lost. The devil mind, the beast will see to it, that you get on its path and stay on it as long as you do not see the way out and do what is necessary to get out.
All the movies on my movie list have pieces to the puzzle, and people that have read my books can see how they fit. It is not just the truth that is in them, the life is in them even more so. The landscapes are places I would like to live. In The Night of the Iguana, that hotel on a hill over looking the ocean with Ava Gardner and rum cocos would be enjoyable to me. I would want a few changes, like I would like the young Ava. If you Google her, you will see that at one time, she was one of the most beautiful women in the world, and smart and interesting. I would also like to have a young body like those young Mexicans, but with the mind, voice, and command of the English language that Richard Burton had. What you like and don't like picks the pieces you want in your heaven. You can have an infinite number of them, because heaven lasts forever.
As you can see, I use people and places that exist in this world to flesh out my vision of heaven. That is important, because they or something very close to them will manifest in my heaven, only they will be much better than we can imagine. That is why I watch the same movies over and over.
It is the same with music. I listen to the music I like and want to take with me over and over again, plant it deep in my collective unconscious mind, the only thing that will survive my death. The treasures I put in will be waiting for me. It is like I am collecting things, and have been my whole life for a time when I can have them in real life. You can get some things now.
If you do not know the truth, you will take the bad things from this life and past lives with you. In other words, you will stay in the animal cycle of life. If you know the truth of life, you can discard everything you do not want, and keep only what you want.
So start collecting your treasures, cars, people, houses, music, etc. You may or may not get some of them in your current life. You do not invest your time and money in getting them now. You put your resources into learning and spreading the truth, helping others get to heaven, helping turn this world into a heaven, because that is how you get to heaven yourself.
As it says in the Bible, your treasures in heaven are not subject to loss, damage, etc., as they are in this world.
