The response to my recent review of the book Proof of Heaven has been unexpectedly huge. There is apparently a real hunger for knowledge about life after death, the true nature of consciousness, the fabric of reality, redemption, Heaven and Hell and other related topics. In the last two days, I’ve heard from dozens of readers who were enthralled by the subject matter, and the article itself has been featured on websites as diverse as SpiritDaily.com and DavidIcke.com.
This all caught me by surprise, because I thought for sure my discussion of this subject would scare off a huge portion of my reading audience, causing my website traffic to plummet. But I didn’t care about that: The message from “Proof of Heaven” needed to be told, and it rang true with my own beliefs and discoveries about consciousness, the Creator and the nature of reality. So I ran with the story anyway, even while thinking it might be a form of professional suicide. (But I’ve never let the risk of losing readers affect my editorial decisions, so why start now?)
In the first first hours after publication, it became clear this article was actually going viral! Rather than being slammed with insults and accusations, I was struck by the huge outpouring of people who had lived through similar near-death experiences. Person after person told me about their own connection with spirit and how they knew there was more to life than the material realm. They wanted to know more…
I soon found myself inundated with questions. How does consciousness really work? What is the purpose of life? Why is the world seemingly so overrun with evil? Is there intelligent life beyond Earth?
I don’t have all those answers, of course, because I’m not God and I’m certainly not an academic student of theology. But I am an intelligent researcher and explorer of reality, and I’ve spent many years reading and pondering the key concepts of philosophy, many of which are centered around questions of consciousness, free will, God and the purpose of life. So I’m starting to compile a loose framework of possible answers to these questions — a sort of shortcut guide to the rules of the cosmic game.
That’s what you’ll find below: A rough collection of realizations regarding these topics, presented here not as absolute fact but as a working framework that shall be expanded and refined as additional information comes to light. If you’re looking for the long, detailed version of all this, read your scripture. That’s because many of these ideas are, of course, ancient knowledge.
