Most of us live our lives based on conditioning, worthwhile but limited in scope by formal education, social norms and expectations. We ignore nonconventional methods. The thing is, the limitations can be ill-fated because they do not belong to the unique person each of us is. When you are presented with evidence you see and feel that it contrary to what you expect, you fight against it. You want to dismiss it. Yet every day millions of people are dedicated to religions that pay homage to the extraordinary: special men and women you’re told about who followed their spiritual instincts, and they were led to supernatural visions. The message of the religions, as I understand, is the special people did it, but chances are, you cannot – you had better stick to black is black, up is up, down is down. But what if you see unusual shades of black, see an up that suddenly becomes a perception including down?
I believe that each of us can extend our choices in an individual way by gradually loosening our acceptance of what others have determined we “should” see and feel. Understand, It’s my opinion based on my experiences as described in the book I wrote. The book you can get from this website. It is not theory, it is a memoir of my experiences. Yes, it could be that we are born and will die in the course of hard science without being influenced by extrasensory experiences. Nevertheless, there is so much more around us. There is for me, and I have no reason to think it is not there for you. It’s a gradual process. I found my own process, and it came out of what was going on in my life. You can find your own way through your own life. I suggest what you could do, in “Affair with the Divine”.
I heard an interview with an artist who paints colors she sees beyond what average people see. Neurologists are testing her to find out why her brain perceives them when others don’t. The medical professionals are looking for an additional part of her brain that has been activated. But which came first? the open mind of the artist which stimulated her brain’s electrical pulses, or the pulses caused her to see more variations of color. Either way, the artist has not accepted the limitation of color as defined by “ordinary” acceptance of it. You have probably heard of psychics seeing auras, colors that surround a person’s body indicating health and well-being. I have seen the aura of one person I encountered, someone I observed but had never met. I did not set out to do it, I just went to a patio restaurant I’d never been to before, without expectations, but with an open mind.
Things are becoming clearer about understanding the possibilities of what we can’t see.
“More is unknown than is known. We know how much dark energy there is because we know how it affects the Universe’s expansion. Other than that, it is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest – everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter is less than 5%.”
But there is no need to get that complicated. We have Plato, the Greek philosopher and teacher, who approached the subject of simultaneous realities through the simple description of bound prisoners in a cave, and the wall they are forced to face unable to turn their heads. Briefly, Plato describes the drama of the shadows the prisoners do see, that becomes their only reality. It does not include everything else going on around them. And maybe much more is going on around you.
