1646: The Adventures of an Unknown Philosopher

Jean Albert Belin Les avantures du philosophe inconnu, en la recherche et en l’invention de la pierre philosophale. Divisées en quatre livres… Paris, 1646. Transcribed by Sean Brooks from the translation in British Library MS. Sloane 3641. The first discourse of philosophy to the unknown philosopher which declares the nature of the stone, its effects, its excellencies with its possibility and essences. Borellus says this author was one Belinus, an abbot. My Son, Many seek the Stone and know not what it is. The definitions which I know they give of it doe furnish me with matter of laughter and compassion. To explain the effects of a thing is not to define it, one must declare the nature which produces those effects. That I may not leave you in this common error, I will let you know in what this essence does consist. The Philosophical Stone is a substance […] Read More

1890: Kosmic Mind

Whatsoever quits the Laya (homogeneous) state, becomes active conscious life. Individual consciousness emanates from, and returns into Absolute consciousness, which is eternal MOTION. (Esoteric Axioms.) Whatever that be which thinks, which understands, which wills, which acts, it is something celestial and divine, and upon that account must necessarily be eternal. – CICERO Edison’s conception of matter was quoted in our March editorial article. The great American electrician is reported by Mr. G. Parsons Lathrop in Harper’s Magazine as giving out his personal belief about the atoms being “possessed by a certain amount of intelligence,” and shown indulging in other reveries of this kind. For this flight of fancy the February Review of Reviews takes the inventor of the phonograph to task and critically remarks that “Edison is much given to dreaming,” his “scientific imagination” being constantly at work. Would to goodness the men of science exercised their “scientific imagination” […] Read More

1929: Why I Am An Agnostic

Clarence Darrow An agnostic is a doubter. The word is generally applied to those who doubt the verity of accepted religious creeds of faiths. Everyone is agnostic as to the beliefs or creeds they do not accept. Catholics are agnostic to the Protestant creeds, and the Protestants are agnostic to the Catholic creed. Anyone who thinks is an agnostic about something, otherwise, he must believe that he is possessed of all knowledge. And the proper place for such a person is in the madhouse or the home for the feeble-minded. In a popular way, in the western world, an agnostic is one who doubts or disbelieves the main tenets of the Christian faith. I would say that belief in at least three tenets is necessary to the faith of a Christian: a belief in God, a belief in immortality, and a belief in a supernatural book. Various Christian sects […] Read More

1988: THE REVELATION OF THE TEMPLE OF THE SUN

Revelation given in 1988  Introduction written in 1991 Property of: Miranda Rt 3 Box 282 A Gallatin, Mo. 64640 Introduction It was in approximately June, 1985, that I first heard of Vesta, Nebraska, a place so obscure and so unknown that it is not on most maps. Yet, it has risen to the forefront of interest as a location of major importance within the energy matrix known as the THE HEART OF THE DOVE in Midwest USA. There are, of course, many dimensions to this that is known as the Merkabah of the Dove and the Heart of the Dove, but we are in this writing to focus primarily upon its influence in a geographical sense. (reference to the map of the Dove on Pg 49 of “The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch” by Dr. J J Hurtak) We refer to the Heart or Diamond Body of […] Read More

1992: MY JOURNEYS INTO THE FUTURE AND THE GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS

— by Tom Smith Contents: Good-bye To Earth – The Journey Begins The Destination Planets The Third Dimension The Fourth Dimension The Fifth Dimension and Beyond Return Visits To Earth When And Other Information After having read all the changes and potential changes to the Earth, many may feel it is time to “get out of Dodge”. Many will do just that, as they have chosen these times to make their transition. But many more will remain to be an integral part of the changes. Actually, all of us are part of the changes. Whether you believe it or not, we have all “signed on” for this adventure, for as many reasons as there are humans. In the channeling of July 15, 1992, the Sun God mentioned that I and others have traveled into the future. Indeed, I have been privileged to have taken such journeys, and have seen […] Read More

2008: A matter of mind power or miracle?

By DELTHIA RICKS Newsday Published: Monday, January 7, 2008 MELVILLE, N.Y. – In 1995, debris from a burning church collapsed on Buffalo, N.Y., firefighter Donny Herbert, depriving him of oxygen for six minutes and consciousness for 10 years. But in what has been described as a medical miracle, Herbert became fully lucid a decade after that tragedy, defying a dim prognosis and allowing him enough time to express love for his wife and four sons. He died just as unexpectedly in May 2005, a month after re-awakening. Herbert’s experience evokes the question: Can the human mind provide the power to will a man from a near-comatose state? Some experts believe the mind is not only powerful, it isn’t even “local” to the body. Dr. Larry Dossey, a physician and the former editor of a journal on alternative medicine, has lectured worldwide on the power of the mind. On his […] Read More

2012: Belief and Reality: Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

I am the creator of my reality – this belief is a very empowering one and one that is the cornerstone of many a mystical school. But what does it actually mean? “I am the creator of my reality” – it means that I am responsible for my thoughts and feelings, my attitudes and beliefs. Yes, fine. How do these create my reality? Well, my thoughts, feelings etc. are certainly responsible for my inner reality. But if  “I am smart and poor and you are rich and stupid” to borrow a line from the heroine of Erich Segal‘s “Love Story” I cannot change that external reality, or can I? If I am really smart I can use that smartness to become rich. If I really want to become rich, it is possible, provided of course that I believe it is possible and I am willing to work for it.

2012: The Purpose of Human Life!

We are Spiritual Beings on a Human Journey. All Spiritual Beings are aspects of Manifested Creation. Manifested Creation is Consciousness Evolving to higher Levels of Awareness. The Purpose of Human Life on Planet Earth is to give Human Souls the opportunity to live in physical bodies and by means of this process awaken them to higher levels of awareness. The ultimate state of human awareness is the Christ Consciousness or Buddhahood. This is the highest state of awareness possible for human beings. To raise more than 30 billion Human Souls to this level is the task of many Co-Creators and Higher Entities. They are in charge of this planet and its population. To raise these Human Souls to maturity and beyond is an enormous task and it takes a very long time… Planet earth is a Global Classroom and we stay in this 3D Classroom until we have graduated […] Read More
