Everyone believes they are a body with a soul when in all actuality, we are a soul occupying a human body.
We have it backwards, our body dies and returns to dust, but our soul lives on, it never dies.
All religions and spiritual philosophies believe in some sort of resurrection. This has been the case since time immemorial. Back as far as we can research, there has been some sort of a definition of an after life, back past the Egyptians and even to ancient Sumeria, where life is presumed to have begun.
Almost all peoples believe in some definition of life after death.
At least that is what they say they believe, but very few have every researched what that means to them, many just pay lip service and go on with their daily lives. Never again questioning it beyond a simple thought.
They go on looking at the world though the illusion they are a physical body with a soul, many don’t even ever question they have a soul, or what that means.
They just fall in line with what ever the conventional wisdom of the day is and essentially become drones to the popular belief of the day, believing what ever it is that everyone else believes.
Many of us have forgotten how to think for ourselves.
Oh how different if we could look at life through the reality of being a soul that occupies different bodies through various incarnations, and realize that through the eons we have all been male, female, gay, straight, religious, atheist, democrat, republican, etc
How many people would have a different view of homosexuals if they realized in a lifetime they were gay?
Same goes for minorities, how about if minorities realized that in a lifetime they were white.
How about if a soul realized on a physical level they treated others as they are now being treated? They a now just repaying Karma for past deeds.
If people could come to the realization that they actually were souls with a body instead of a body with a soul it would put a whole new perspective on life.
We may finally come to realize what the life experience is all about.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.
In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.
For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.
He has published several books about his adventures, and is available for book signings, and speaking engagements.
