06-26-19 Truth And Realms


‘Contacts are infrequent but substantial when they do occur.’ Notes Bruce on his report regarding strange communications from unexplainable sources. Bruce is fascinated with the phenomenon of channeling, psychics, and other forms of communications from beyond. He has read hundreds of books and interviewed dozens of people who have experiences connecting with external or internal sources.

Bruce is convinced there is intelligence from some other realm or dimension that leaks through human barriers to connect with human awareness. This intelligence is profound and comes from a perspective that humans don’t normally have access. It is an amazing mystery involving human limitations and superior knowledge.

As Bruce reviews his statements it’s obvious how vague and unsatisfying his explanations are. It really shows how the mind with its inadequate vocabulary struggles to describe the unexplainable. However, Bruce stays dedicated. He accepts his impossible task and uses his daily efforts to push any understanding forward.

Today he will interview an elderly woman. Bruce became aware of her abilities through mutual friends. But the woman has been reluctant to meet, and it took many attempts before she finally agreed to a short conversation. Her name is Sofia and she lives in a modest cottage near the Northern California Redwoods. When Bruce arrives at her private residence and he drives down a long drive way thru the tall trees to a clearing, where Sofia’s small house sets.

Bruce walks up the path to the house and sees a woman on the porch rocking. It is a beautiful day and the porch overhang blocks the intense sun from Sofia’s rocker. There is another chair next to her rocker that Bruce assumes is for him. Bruce introduces himself. ‘Morning, I’m Bruce. Thank you for allowing me to speak with you. May I sit?’ Sofia sees Bruce eyeing the other chair and she replies, ‘Hello, please sit on the porch steps, this chair is taken.’ Bruce looks at the empty chair, but obediently sits on the steps. Bruce continues, ‘as I said on the phone, I am researching a future book on psychic connections. I would like to ask you about your experiences. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.’ Sofia asks, ‘why are you doing this’? Bruce tells her of his fascination and strong belief that superior intelligence exists from some other realms, and that we occasionally have access. Sofia’s responds, ‘okay, but so what?’ ‘Well, if humans can access this type of intelligence then the benefits could be enormous for mankind,’ replies Bruce. Sofia persists, ‘why would it be a benefit?’

Bruce sees that Sofia has turned the tables and he is now the one being interviewed. ‘Mankind is struggling and we need direction to lead us to a better life.’ “Mankind has always struggled. In fact, mankind has perfected struggling. So, who determines what is a better life?’ probes Sofia. Bruce is getting frustrated and feels intellectually attacked. ‘This world is on a path of self-destruction and we need immediate help or I’m afraid we will be extinct in the not-so-distant future.’ Sofia immediately responses ‘MANKIND is on the path of extinction. The world is fine. What is really needed? You’re not saying it.’ Bruce is feeling confused, ‘help, we need help.’ ‘You said superior intelligence. What will that give you?’ Sofia challenges. Bruce’s mind scrambles for an answer, then desperately he blurts out, ‘truth we need to hear the truth’. At that moment, something amazing happens.

Immediately after saying his last word, Bruce feels a lifting sensation and his conscious awareness moves from his body to the empty chair. He can see his body still seating on the steps, yet his awareness is located in the chair. Sofia softly speaks through her mind, ‘now what would you like to ask me?’ Bruce is feeling so awake. He feels whole and completely comfortable. Slowly he finds his words, ‘this is what I mean. A connection. I can’t explain.’ Sofia replies, ‘I don’t believe it can be explained from a human perceptive. Look at Bruce. See his limitations.’ From the chair Bruce observes himself. He sees the limitations of his senses. All the visuals his eyes can’t see, all the sounds his ears can’t hear, and all the dimensions of activities that swirl around him without his knowledge. Bruce watches his mind futilely attempt to understand with grossly limited abilities.

He can see his mind reaching faulty conclusions that compound on each other to make a deep mess that humans call knowledge. Sofia suggests, ‘full truth is beyond human’s ability to comprehend. But truth within the human experience is possible. Factually Truth is a human concept. In the totally of existence, truth is ‘what is’ and is never questioned or considered. Only humans have the ability to lie to themselves. Thus, the need for a concept of truth. The human mind is so young in evolution that it has become dangerous to human existence. The mind is designed to perform with equal passion and effort, to a ‘lie’ as it would for the ‘truth’. Consequently, humans create devastating means to kill themselves. Humans create overwhelming structures to destroy the environment that they most depend upon for survival. The mind is wonderful, but naive and easy to manipulate. Truth is needed because of the weakness of the mind.’

Sofia pauses as Bruce soaks in her words. Then Bruce asks, ‘the human trajectory does not look good with global warming and the push for advanced weapons. Is there hope?’ Sofia responses ‘there is always hope. Which is also a human concept, because of the messes we create. In the grand picture humanity seems to be a great evolutionary experiment. Many evolution experiments have become extinct. Possibly humans will be added to that list. But consciousness is evolving and many are moving beyond their mind’s limitations. It only takes a fraction to move the masses in a healthier direction. Possibly your book could spark an awakening.’

Sofia seems finished and begins to stand up. Before she goes inside, she turns to the empty chair. ‘I sense your dedication and offer you this’. From under her sweater she pulls out a manuscript. ‘I have written my understanding of the human dilemma. It is my human truth. Possibly with your energy and insights this may help sell truth to the mind of the masses.’ She places the manuscript in the empty chair. Sofia smiles and said one last thing to the chair. ‘Don’t forget to take that with you.’ And she points to Bruce still sitting on the steps. Peace***
