Sample text

We possibly would never see an earthquake, volcano, tornado, flood, or typhoon in any place where enlightened or awakened people live in absolute harmony, love, and truth. I don't believe we will ever eradicate earthquakes, snipers, cancer, or war by blaming God. We can only begin to lessen all these things if globally we begin understanding, taking responsibility, and having faith. It's easy to blame a cruel self-righteous God that blows up buildings and slaughters children. This makes God the bad guy and we the noble victims.

If we kill someone, we need to come back and work through our — 54 — karma with that person. We need to come to an understanding that life is sacred. We need to respect one another, rather than kill one another. If we don't work through this karma, we keep repeating senseless lives of coming back killing and being killed. Hopefully, in one life we make a decision to stop killing and clean up our karma. When we reach this level of awareness, experience genuine sorrow, and decide to never kill again, we have worked through our shadow side and erased our karma.

Dreams help us tremen—30 — dously in this process. When we reach this place of enlightenment, we're finally free of the endless chain of human suffering and incarnations. We're not subject to death, physical pain, disease, ego, or fear any longer. We're joyful, peaceful, literally light, and we have a greater capacity to serve and sustain other beings, which gives us great purpose and passion. When we reach enlightenment, the energy (soul) and matter (body) of our DNA alters. This is a long process taking place over countless lifetimes.
