One of my favorite books is “ The Five People You Meet In Heaven”.  It’s a book that I heartily recommend to everyone that I meet.  The reason that I like the book is that it reinforces the idea that we all came to this world for a reason and because it deals with the concept of heaven pragmatically instead of through the wishful eyes of a believer.  The problem that I have with some people’s belief about heaven is that it’s what I call a limiting concept.  That is, you can’t get to heaven unless….   On the other hand, I view heaven as being a concept of self-enpowerment.  Life, for me, is a journey and heaven is not so much a destination as it is a stopping off point.  It is a place that is part of the process of life, a place that we all get to experience (even Hitler according to Neale Donald Walsch).

It says in the Bible that my father’s house has many mansions and it’s been proven to me that indeed my father’s house (all of creation) does have many mansions (worlds/lives).  Which brings us to the fourth secret of the universe –

Death is not the end, it is the beginning

I don’t limit myself or my concept of life to this one lifetime.  Creation is much more intelligent and infinite than that.  Neither do I consider mankind to be the point of creation.  Rather, I believe that we are all part of an infinite stream of consciousness and exist simultaneously in multiple dimensions.  Thus when we “die” in one dimension, we simply continue to exist in another dimension.

In the circle of life, there is no beginning and no end.  Life is its own reason for existence and we are all part of that evolutionary process in which death has no meaning, other than perhaps rebirth.  This process is beautifully captured in the mythology of the Phoenix Rising which was revered by the ancient Egyptians .  Other ancient cultures have had other names for this symbol of immortality but the meaning is always the same (i.e.a continuous cycle of death and rebirth).

Unfortunately, we live in a fear-based reality where the things we understand the least we fear the most – like death.  As opposed to that, some of the ancient cultures actually celebrated a person’s death.  They believed, and I agree, that it’s far healthier to celebrate the life that we shared with a loved one than to mourn the separation.  In the end, we exist in a dimension governed by the natural law of duality.  How could you ever comprehend the meaning of light unless there was darkness?  Similarly, how could you ever come to understand God without the existence of evil?  In this world of duality, everything (including death) is illusion – everything but love.

Most people identify with the physical aspect of their being.  After all, our  senses tell us that we exist in a physical realm and what could be more real than hearing, seeing and touching the world around us.  However, science is redefining the boundaries of our universe and in the process closing the gap between itself and religion.

Research in the field of quantum physics has uncovered that the basic underlying reality of matter is quite different than what we perceive.  Scientists have now stated that at the core of physical matter is a non-physical reality.  In layman’s terms, it means that the non-physical world produces the physical world, and not the other way around as we have previously believed.

Which brings us to the third secret of the universe –

All there is is Consciousness

With the advent of quantum mechanics, man has begun to realize that he exists in a space/time paradigm contained within a field of what the scientists refer to as “non-local area phenomena.”   Scientists say that this non-local area phenomena is the source and cause of our physical existence.  In other words, we are spiritual beings having a human experience rather than human beings having a spiritual experience.

What it all proves is that there is an interconnectedness to everything and everyone in the universe.  Not only are we all connected, we are all literally one.  Separation, therefore, is an illusion.  Further, non-local area phenomena/Consciousness is not bound by space/time nor does it need to observe the physical laws of the material world that it created.  It permeates everything and yet could said to be nowhere.  Can you spell G-O-D?

It’s somewhat ironic.  As much as science has tried to dismiss the existence of God, it may just have found him in, of all places, a scientific laboratory.  And that’s all there is folks…Consciousness that is.
