 Greetings Everyone!

The things of the world exist, but only for as long as we see, feel and sense them.

There is the old philosophical question about the tree falling in the woods and the sound of the tree being heard if there was no one in the woods to hear.

Definitely, the tree makes a sound, whether or not there is anyone in the forest, because we are all here on the earth, seeing, feeling, sensing. It doesn’t matter where we are on the earth; it matters only that we are, somewhere. 

The atmosphere of humans makes it all real: the forest, the tree, the listener.  And that same atmosphere, in turn, makes possible the posing of silly questions such as these.

But, of course, the fact that we even need to pose questions at all illustrates how far we are from actually seeing, feeling, or sensing.

Greetings !

Initiation is a passage from one type of life to another type of life, and the movement is always presumed to be from a lower to a higher level.

But there is no up or down in the universe & the spiritual voyager often finds herself in a hell rather than a heaven.

Consider Balberith, ex-princess of the heavenly Cherubim & now, after the Fall of Satan, high priestess & mistress of ceremonies in the infernal realms.

Balberith is spoken of as an evil demoness, inciting men & women to murder.  But this is not so. Balberith is an initiator; she oversees the transition as the human being moves from one type of life to the next. 

And Balberith, perhaps, will be with you if you summon her to protect & guide you on your quest.  Not from this life to Hell, but from this life to Heaven & and then to whatever lies beyond.

Check out  my new book, by the way; it is filled with insights such as the above.  Pre-order it now from any online source that sells books!
