Hi Adrian. I have some rather pointed questions concerning the implications of some of the things your book affirms that any person is able to attain. I do not mean to come across as accusational, so in advance, I apologise if I do. I only intend to probe your beliefs (put them to the test, so to speak) in the hope of gaining answers to some curious questions, which as so far, I haven't had the opportunity to ask. I've put the questions in bold so you can identify them more easily.
I fully understand your position. I certainly would not write anything that I was not able to fully substantiate or in which I completely believe.
I understand from this URL;http://www.ourultimatereality.com/book1.html
that you have set up a successful internet business. One of the reasons you have given for this being possible, is because of the universal fact that human beings are able to achieve anything that they desire.
Furthermore, you have strongly asserted that you wish to share this "secret" with as many people as possible. I quote one of your opening paragraphs;
Are you one of the countless millions of people still having to merely exist from day to day without enjoying the true fulfilment, happiness, health, wealth and abundance that you truly deserve?
My first pointed question is this; are you being fair to the people who work in your successful internet business?
You have said that you wish to share the "secret" of allowing any person to attain their heart's desire.
But have you shared this secret with all of your employees in your business? Because it seems to me, if each one of your employees knew the secret of attaining whatever their heart desired, they would have little reason to work for you. If all of your employees knew this secret, you might even go out of business, because they would all leave their job, and separately attain whatever they wish, without having to work under you.
To state my first question as clearly as possible...; doesn't your desire to have a successful internet business sacrifice people to a mundane existence of work in internet business management? Doesn't the successful longevity of your business depend on your employees never knowing this "secret" of attaining whatever their heart desires?
Thank you for your question which is a very relevant one.
First of all, those particular businesses were founded and being operated by myself some time ago now and my main focus as far as the business was concerned was managing the business successfully for all concerned whic of course is the primary responsibility of any business owner.
However, and most importantly, we have to recognise and accept the fact that all human beings are at different stages along the sacred path. Many are simply not ready to discover these truths, much less act upon them. We all have to evolve by experience, and that experience includes many lives on Earth under many different circumstances. For people who are relatively early in their evolution to attempt to teach them these things and expect them to embrace it would be like giving a kindergarten child SATS tests to do
The fact is, and I am not avoiding the question in any way, when a person is ready to discover and apply these important Universal principles, the means by which to do so will appear. That is why you are here as well as everyone else. The Universe is immutable andperfect in its operation, and there is no way that I or anyone else can interfere in that perfection.
My second question I shall ask in a moment. Actually, the answer to my second question may already be covered in your book, which I haven't yet had the opportunity to read. If it is, you needn't bother to type out an answer, but instead simply provide a page reference and I'll get around to reading it.
I have read from Michael Newton's 'Journey of Souls' and your introduction URLhttp://www.ourultimatereality.com/book1.html
about life planning. You have said that we plan our lives before we incarnate into a physical body. Now, here is a curious thought; if we plan our lives, then that must mean that before I incarnated into this physical world, that I planned
to learn and gain knowledge of these "paranormal" (or "mystical") topics that people such as yourself have written about.
Yes, that is exactly right.
My second pointed question that follows from this curious thought is this; If the ultimate aim of human beings (as souls) is to learn, grow, become wiser, and discover who we really are, then why didn't we simply plan - before we incarnated into this life - to learn of these mystical topics? Take, for example, a bank robber. Such a person may be so obsessed in attaining wealth by robbing banks, that in his lifetime he never even considers mystical subjects. Why didn't that bank robber simply "plan", before he incarnated into this world, to get a copy of your book, or "plan" to meet mystical people like Mediums or Clairvoyants from a young age, so he could discover more about himself and become wiser straight away?
Quite simply because the required the experience of being a bank robber. He or she, with guidance, would have determined that being a bank robber would provide the relevant experiences required in order to evolve. If you look around there are millions of people doing things and being subjected to things that you would have thought they never would have chosen, but the fact is they did, and for a reason that is not readily apparent from a physical perspective.
This is one reason we should never judge people. Some of the most highly evolved people on the planet are those, who to others, seem the most deprived. People like beggars on street corners and others who seem to have a simple or reclusive existence are often the most advanced because they know the physical world for the illusion it really is, and want nothing more to do with it than to learn the lessons they are here to learn.
Perhaps to this, you may reply; "We choose an optimal life path. Perhaps the bank robber did plan to learn of such mystical things, but was led astray at some point". If that is the case, then a third question arises; How does one determine whether or not they are living an optimal life path? If they are happy?
They were not necessarily led astray. As I said before, they may well have planned that existence in order to learn certain lessons.
To learn whether one is living an optimal life can be done by meditation and other forms of guidance. The "Higher-Self" which is actually the "Inner-Self" "knows" everything. That is why it is so important to focus on listening to and acting on the guidance of the Inner-Self. It is also possible by Astral Projection to learn from that perspective more about ones true objectives.
Most people are still too focussed in the material world to recognise these thruths. I have a chapter in my book called "The Human Paradox" that deals with these matters.
Or, is someone living an optimal life path if they know about mystical topics?[/b] Because it is through knowing about and experiencing Mystical things, like traveling to the Astral Planes, that we best evolve spiritually, is it not? And if these things are best for an optimal life path, why didn't we all plan to have these experiences?
The fact is; many people do. But again, as I relate in the chapter "The Human Paradox", when people arrive on Earth they are immediately indoctrinated by parents and others into the physical world, and by the age of 7 years or so they have lost contact with their true purpose.
That would be odd indeed, because, there are many millions of people who know nothing about mystical topics, or that out of body experiences are even possible. That would mean that millions of people on Earth aren't on an optimal life path. And if that is true, a fourth question arises; if so many people aren't on an optimal life path, aren't the rules of our reality extremely haphazard and inefficient?
There are no "rules" as such, only Universal principles of which Cause and Effect is a very important one. Everyone has freewill to do as they please, but always subject to Cause and Effect. It might well be true that people are not on an "optimal path", but nevertheless it is the path they have chosen of their own freewill on Earth, whether or not it is what was intended before arriving. This is one purpose of my book. The information is there for those who are led to find it, so it is not a case of there being no information available from this or other sources.
It is also very important to note that your observations are only beng made from a temporal perspective. In the grand scheme of things only perfection exists, and no one, except God, can understand the complete picture over all eternity.
That's all I can think of asking at this time, thank you for taking the time to read my questions.
It is my pleasure; I hope I have answered them
