For Those Who Would Have Eyes To See


Part 1 the introduction


In the last blog titled “For Those Who Would Have Eyes To See”, I said this series of blogs would look at creation from the vantage point of thought, energy and matter all being part of something that is working together. I also said that what the series would be based on a book I wrote Prophet or Madman. I can not promise that what you read will be able to shift your awareness and bring you into a state of enlightenment. What I can promise is that if you read and follow along with an open mind you will be exposed to the spiritual view of creation. You will also get some insight as to the mechanics of creation as I was shown by God. I say you will need an open mind because many in this world can not accept anything that exists beyond their physical senses. Much of what you will read will at times appear to be abstract and foreign to what you previously called the real world. Just as Jesus said responding to his disciples when asked why he spoke in parables, if you resonate with what you read in these blogs, then for you, it is meant that you understand the mysteries of creation.


Over the last 6 and half years I have been asked many times by customers who see the book on display at the ice cream shop what the book is about. At first, it was difficult to come up with an answer that was concise and yet comprehensive enough. What I found that seemed to work best was to say that the book was the spiritual view of Creation and our journey through it. Many times I would find that those who held a very rigid view based on their religious backgrounds were not interested in investigating or entertaining any other way of seeing. As this series evolves I believe it will become more apparent why that is the case and perhaps even the core reason this world is still fighting and killing in the name of God.


While we are on the subject of killing, I would like to state for the record that my present view of life and death is somewhat different then the one I grew up with. You might even say that after being gifted with an overview of Creation my view on life and death is now opposite the view I use to have. Today from the spiritual view, I now see life is an infinite experience and death is a temporary one. Again, as we move further along, I believe this concept will not only become clearer but will show itself as being the only true way of seeing. 


It was once said that God is Spirit and to truly know God we must worship him as Spirit, but what is Spirit? If there is one thing that I see is common to most major religions it is that God as spirit, is different then man. 


What then is Spirit? What does it look like?


As a child my great aunt gave me a stuffed dog that had a tag attached to its’ collar. On the tag were written these words; “How can I know when I have found love when I don’t know what it smells like?”


Developing the eyes to see things for what they are as apposed to how they appear can be challenging but worth the effort. My hope and motivation for writing and sharing is that somehow this world can awaken to not only intellectualize Unconditional Love but rather awaken to it and Truly Live.


Regardless of your path or what religion you practice, if you wish to awaken yourself and live awakened in this world you will have to struggle.


More to come…


Love and Light,
