ITC Gem 13: How the Luxembourg Miracle Began
Posted on 2010 July 25 by Mark Macy
Editor’s note: In 1992 my colleague Hans Heckmann and I flew to Europe to meet a couple in Luxembourg who were reporting spirit contacts of historic proportion. Maggy, a schoolteacher, and Jules, a civil servant, had been living a quiet life together near the forests and farms just south of the capital. That changed in 1983, when they had watched the popular TV program “Unbelievable Stories.” The host, Rainer Holbe, was featuring the work of Hans-Otto Koenig, a German acoustic engineer involved in spirit communication through technology. Koenig set up his equipment under close supervision of the station engineers. One of the engineers asked if a voice could come through in direct reply to a question, and a voice quickly replied,
We hear your voice. Otto Koenig makes wireless contact with the dead.
Stunned, Rainer Holbe addressed the millions of listeners across Europe, “I tell you, dear Listeners of Radio Luxembourg, and I swear by the life of my children, that nothing has been manipulated. There are no tricks. It is a voice, and we do not know from where it comes.” The Station issued an official statement afterwards: Every step of the program was carefully supervised. Staff and engineers were convinced that the voices were paranormal.
That 1983 TV show stirred a karmic chord deep inside the Luxembourg couple… who would learn later, through their own, even more miraculous spirit communication channels, that they had been immersed in a transcommunication project together in another lifetime, thousands of years earlier! That’s when I had the good fortune to meet the couple and begin translating their reports into English… after they had established contact with the Timestream spirit group and began getting life-changing contacts. One of the first articles I wrote about the couple was about their early breakthroughs.
– – – – My Report for CETL – – – –
Maggy began experimenting with a tape recorder in June 1985. Within a week she received her first voice contacts. Jules suggested experimenting in the country to eliminate the chance of voices boiling over from phone lines, nearby conversations, etc. Taking pains to be sure she was not picking up radio or TV broadcasts, Maggy was again successful. With this experience and with knowledge gained from leading researchers (and especially the work done by the late Konstantin Raudive), Maggy and Jules decided to open the doors to the spirit world wider than they’d been opened before. In late 1985 they started meeting with others, and soon hosted weekly recording sessions. With a strong hunch that a dedicated researcher such as Raudive would try to help out from the spirit world if given the chance, the group each week would welcome the spirit of Dr. Raudive. They picked up numerous random voices, and then one day they thought they could recognize Raudive’s deep voice among the other faint replies. As time passed, the group’s efforts succeeded in building a contact field between themselves and Konstantin Raudive, and the deep voice (which was indeed his) became persistent in their meetings. After adding some new equipment — a TV set, two radios, a field generator, and two ultraviolet lamps — in the Spring of 1986, the voice boomed out clearly,
Here it is summer, always summer!
One day in August Jules and Maggy were listening to their small clock-radio, the music stopped, a rushing sound swept through the speaker, then a deep voice full of joy and satisfaction boomed out over the speakers:
This is Konstantin Raudive. Soon it will work everywhere!
The couple didn’t get much sleep that night.
After this the doors opened wider and wider. Deceased relatives and friends reported in frequently. Dr. Raudive spoke at every recording session. The TV and both radios all started to put out strange noises occasionally. The radios even tuned themselves occasionally to an optimum dial setting. Soft voices would instruct the team to tune into the Eurosignal (a radio frequency found only in Europe which carries a steady signal 24 hours a day) and leave the dials alone. Sometimes the more sensitive group members would feel inexplicably compelled to adjust the equipment with no voice instruction. It soon became apparent to everyone in the group that influence from the spiritual dimensions upon our lives is far greater than most people think.
One day a new voice joined the sessions, a high-pitched, computer-like voice that seemed almost too perfect and synthesized to be of human origin. It turned out to be an ethereal being who was “assigned” to Earth to help establish a new phase of interdimensional communication for us. The being would eventually describe his role as a gatekeeper, protecting and sustaining the communication bridge. He told the couple that he (like other ethereals) has no name, but they could call him “Technician,” since that was his role in the project. The Technician soon became the spiritside manager of the operation, providing a countdown to stabilize conditions at the beginning of each contact, followed by the statement:
Contact for the Eurosignal Bridge.
During one session the group asked a question about God, and the Technician’s high-pitched voice broke in:
Please address this question to me.
Maggy asked, “Who are you?”
We are what we are. It is difficult to explain to you but I am not an energy being, not a light being. I was never human, never an animal, and was never incarnate. Neither am I God! You know the picture of two children walking across a bridge. Behind them is a being that protects them. This is what I am to you but without wings. If you insist on giving me a name, call me Technician.

This weekend (2010 July 25) I have dug through my files to find all of those early Luxembourg reports, and I plan to start posting them online in the coming weeks. (Click here to see their future home among the ITC journals I also have been posting.)
Meanwhile, my next few posts on this blog will be about the nature of God, or the source or principle, from the perspective of our spirit friends, especially the Technician and other ethereals.

ITC Gem 12: Friedrich Juergenson Makes Contact
Posted on 2010 July 1 by Mark Macy
Editor’s note: This contact arrived in Luxembourg on April 28, 1992, a few months before my first meeting with the couple at the ITC receiving station CETL.
Fascinating story here. Friedrich Juergenson was perhaps the best-known spirit voice pioneer… regarded by many as the father of EVP. After his death in 1987 he apparently moved to finer levels of the astral realm, but was invited “down” to the Timestream spirit group to participate in the ITC project. Timestream had decided to send images and messages of Juergenson to CETL, since he had been a prominent researcher in lifetime.
In this message, he announces Timestream’s plan to send a picture of him along with the three suns of Marduk. (To see those historic pictures, which came through Stations Luxembourg and Rivenich (Germany), click here.)
– – – – CETL Report – – – –
Early in 1992 Swejen informed us that F. Juergenson was planning to contact us. We waited. On April 28 an unfamiliar voice announced:
Spiritside: Greetings to you. This is Friedrich Juergenson.
The voice was intelligible but soft. During the greeting the voice changed and became more distinct. I recognized the well known researcher by the intonation of his voice.
Earthside: Mr. Juergenson, greetings to you, too! It is nice of you to talk to us.
Spiritside: You know, I always wanted to avoid a situation in which people create a cult around me, yet it apparently happened.
Earthside: I understand and will pass on your feelings about it.
Spiritside: I am coming through here to tell you that a great gathering is planned for tomorrow. Decisions will be made about what to put through to you next. I shall meet two ladies — Swejen Salter and Elise K. Homes — but also many others who will decide on a picture that shows me during lifetime. The three suns of Marduk will be recognizable in the background. The picture will probably arrive at Mr. Homes’ home. Also an audio contact is planned.
Earthside: A picture with three suns. I can understand you well. I regret that the answering device was not set for recording. I would have liked to record your voice to demonstrate it. People would have liked it. Unfortunately, it is too late for that.
Spiritside: You mean the sounds you wanted to record?
Earthside: Yes, but I must have pushed the wrong button. I do not understand why it is not recording. I’ll write everything down.
Spiritside: I shall give you another contact soon which you can record and I shall then speak to the people, I shall also speak about another subject but for now will only say one sentence: “Mr. K. Did not act according to my ideas.”
Earthside: Yes, I know. The Technician and Swejen said you are now residing in higher levels and are not a human being anymore as we understand it.
Spiritside: Yes, I am in higher levels. I have become for you part of what mankind used to call “Gods.”
– – – – End of CETL Report – – – –
At the time of this contact, the CETL couple were collaborating closely with researcher Adolf Homes of Germany, and each station had its own spirit group working with it—Timestream working with the Luxembourg couple, Centrale working with Mr Homes. Swejen Salter was the director of the Timestream spirit group, and Elise Karoline Homes was with Centrale. Elise was the mother of Adolf, but she’d died when he was just a baby… so Adolf had grown up with a yearning to somehow reconnect with the mother he’d never known. ITC made that connection possible. Elise had moved on to finer realms of spirit and had forgotten completely about her life experiences on Earth. Our ethereal friends, The Seven, located her, reminded her of her Earth lifetime, told her of her son Adolf who was involved in ITC, and invited her to help out. She accepted the invitation, and her picture appeared one morning on Adolf’s television during one of his experiments!
Timestream and Centrale arranged for several “cross-contacts,” in which similar images and/or messages would be sent to both earthside stations simultaneously. This picture of Juergenson was one such cross-contact.
As I explain in my book, The Project, and also on some youtube videos (click here to view the videos), the Earth was inhabited long, long ago by superhuman, god-like beings from the planet Eden, or Marduk. When the Edenites destroyed their world with advanced technologies, colonists on Earth became stranded here. They eventually created modern humans, through genetic engineering. So the many legends of gods and Titans are based in truth. Apparently those god-like humans still exist in the finer levels of the spirit realms… and many of us on Earth join with them after we die.
(I leave for Montreal tomorrow to attend the annual IIIHS conference, where I’ll be giving a presentation on ITC and a workshop on Science and the Study of Maya. This will probably be my last public speaking, as I can share a lot more through my writing, especially this blog. In any case, this will be my last post here for a week or so.)

ITC Gem 11: The End of Reincarnation
Posted on 2010 June 21 by Mark Macy
Editor’s Note: It was a magical time for the researchers at the CETL lab for instrumental transcommunication in Luxembourg in the late 1980s and early 90s. A high-tech rapport with a group of deceased humans, including the spirit of the famous English explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton (click here for his bio), was made possible by a cluster of seven ethereal beings. One of the ethereals told the researchers that although he and the other ethereals don’t really have names, per se, they could call him “Technician,” since that described his role in facilitating and protecting the incredible communication bridge that was opening up for the couple. He was a sort of gatekeeper between Earth and positive astral realms of spirit. Under the protection of Technician and The Seven, the spirit group, calling themselves Timestream, were chatting with the Luxembourg couple on their phone, talking through their radios, showing themselves and their world in brief flashes on the couple’s TV screen, and even planting images and lengthy messages on their desktop computer. On various occasions the Technician himself communicated with Maggy, the main CETL researcher. Here are a couple of reports from those early years in Luxembourg, closing out this series on reincarnation.
– – – CETL Report, 1989 – – –
Reincarnation exists. There are parallel worlds. Mankind evolves in a forever moving wheel of life. Some have arrived at a point of development that allows them a better understanding. Reincarnation means progression forward, not backward. Animals too are subject to the cycle of incarnation. A person does not reincarnate in an animal body. Important earth personalities are being born again as simple people if they used their previous life only to exploit others. There is a purpose for sickness and infirmity. Do not judge the fate of other people. If we feel it is important enough to let you know why some people are being tested this way, we will do so. It is only appropriate to advise and help some people, while others do not want to be helped. Those individuals have selected a life of suffering for their incarnation.
– – – CETL Report, 1991 – – –
Technician, referring to Richard Francis Burton:
When a man has experienced all facets of earthly life, grief, joy, happiness, pain, suffering and exhaustion, when all search for knowledge has been satisfied and he has explored all corners of the Earth, when the wheel of life comes to a halt after many incarnations, then the time has come to look for new horizons. At this point, reincarnation ends.
– – – End of CETL Report – – –
Note: It was an honor and privilege for me to become a part of that miraculous other-worldly bridge once I began collaborating with the CETL researchers in the early 1990s, publishing English translations of their reports in a series of papers. It was because of that rapport, and the establishment of INIT in 1995 (click here for background), that I began to receive phone calls from our spirit friends (click here for samples of those phone calls). The messages about reincarnation radically changed my view of the afterlife. MM
ITC Gem 10: How Some People Reincarnate
Posted on 2010 June 16 by Mark Macy
Editor’s note: There’s a lot of debate about reincarnation. In this report by CETL of Luxembourg in 1992, we see how the process actually happens on the spiritside… at least among our friends at Timestream.
– – – CETL Report – – –
On Jan. 14, 1992, Swejen Salter, the head of Timestream Spirit Group, described how some people in spirit experience the process of reincarnating.
Earthside: Swejen, you told me the people in your world live similarly to people on earth. They have a body as we do but have no diseases or complaints and enjoy a pleasant existence. They live together with relatives or with people to whom they are attracted. Surely, their departure from their friends must be difficult when they return to earth for a new existence? Do people decide themselves how and when they incarnate?
Spiritside: In many cases, people decide themselves. In some cases they are also being told by higher beings. Nobody is forced to return. To many, the process is like an inner voice that reminds them of their duties and lessons that are still waiting for them on earth. They may delay these tasks for many years but know they cannot avoid them forever.
Many people depend on being reminded of their duties by spiritually more evolved beings who tell them when the time has come to go back to earth. They need superior guiding spirits. Others do not like to be reminded of their task. They need neither spirit guides nor other people to tell them what to do. For such spirits there is an inner voice that tells them what they still have to finish on earth.
Whether a spirit guide or an inner voice reminds them is unimportant. The results are always the same.
Earthside: What comes next when they make up their minds. Are there special locations for reembodiment?
Spiritside: When a person of our group has finally decided on reincarnation, higher beings consult with each other about his thoughts and wishes which led him to this decision. When higher beings have consented to a new reincarnation or have motivated a being for such a decision, the person is led to a special building provided for reincarnations.
Earthside: That reminds me a little of dying on our side. Describe the procedure for me, please. Does the person concerned take leave from close spiritual sisters or brothers?
Spiritside: The procedure is similar to people’s arrival here, only this time it is a going back. The person is again placed in what looks like a tub. His body, which on this level usually takes on an average age of 25-30 years, begins to change and becomes increasingly younger and smaller. It returns to the state of a child and then to a baby and finally to a small cell. By the time the body has become a cell, it is no longer present here among us. The cell has meanwhile arrived in the female body of a human being.
Earthside: What makes possible the return process from body to cell on your side, is it done with the help of technical equipment?
Spiritside: Yes, the process takes place with the help of apparatuses.
Earthside: How do people incarnate who have no technical equipment?
Spiritside: With the help of incantations and prayers.
Earthside: So, this is how we all have come back. That is hard to imagine. The soul of the being is therefore in the cell as soon as the cell has developed in the female body?
Spiritside: Yes, at the moment the body disappears for us, the conception has taken place on earth, and the soul is in the cell.
– – – End of CETL Report – – –
Note: Some research has found that the soul might be able to enter the cell, or fetus, anytime between conception and birth, so perhaps “the jury is still out” on the issue of exactly when reincarnation occurs.
ITC Gem 9: Convincing a Skeptical Public
Posted on 2010 June 13 by Mark Macy
Editor’s Note: This post is mostly in response to a lively conversation in the comments section of one of my other recent posts… on the strangeness of material “reality.” (click here to read that dialog between Liz Wagner and Les Harris)
In many contacts our spirit friends told us that public skepticism would present a major hurdle for ITC research… and in this contact, the Seven ethereals explained that most of that skepticism can be traced back to the separation of the physical mind with our higher spiritual self.
“Fear of death is one of the most distressing concepts of human culture. It is based on the conscious belief that your bodily existence offers life and security, which it never wants to lose. Fear of death therefore is evidence of the mind having lost its roots. It shows a spiritual being who has far removed itself from its higher self.
“You owe this mentality largely to an intellectual and scientific way of thinking. It wants all thoughts reduced to a comprehensible level of material existence.
“The church also has many difficulties. These days, the churchgoer knows very little about heaven, hell and life after death. Indeed, a large number of them deny these things. Such skepticism which is most prevalent among those who are wise and worldly could easily influence and corrupt people of simple faith and pure heart.
“Heaven is in man and those who have heaven within themselves go to heaven. Heaven is in all those who recognize what is of God and let themselves be guided by the Divine. The priority and basic concern of every religion is the acknowledgement of God!”
Dear Liz and Les…
You mentioned your personal difficulties in reconciling these ITC contacts, so I decided to share my own experiences.
I struggled with the same doubts for the first couple of years of association with Maggy and Jules H-F. I remember during my first flight to Luxembourg I was reading a small stack of research reports of their work, which had been translated by Hans Heckmann for George Meek, and my mind was bouncing around:
– Eyes widening…This is amazing! It’ll change the world…
– Eyes rolling… This has got to be contrived. It’s impossible…
– Eyes closing… I hope this is true. It’ll change everything I believe in…
For the first couple of years, I was switching constantly among amazement, doubt, and wishful thinking. Sometimes I’d be convinced, and my wife Regina would say it couldn’t be true. At other times I’d express doubts and Regina would say, “You know, there might be something to this.” That especially happened when she read some of the more esoteric messages from the finer beings like Technician. Regina had studied the Course in Miracles and was a frequent meditator, so most of that information resonated with her. It was the stories of the planet Marduk being the legendary Eden and source of humanity that got her eyes rolling. She’d say, “Don’t mention Marduk in your books, or people will dismiss it all as nonsense.”
Long story short, the more I became familiar with the Luxembourg researchers and their spirit friends, the more certain I became of their honesty and sincerity and the legitimacy of their claims.
Then I befriended bright, discerning scientists like German physicist Ernst Senkowski and Swedish psychiatrist Nils Jacobsen, who had worked closely with the couple and were firmly convinced it was for real.
But the most convincing evidence of all was provided by our spirit friends, who by then were becoming very close friends of mine. They were fully aware of the situation here—widespread religious beliefs and misconceptions, the imperceptibility of spiritual energies and realms, a Newtonian science that discounts all things spiritual, and the disinterest of the general public in these matters—all stirring up doubts and fears… even among researchers. So our spirit friends gave us good, solid evidence that would be hard to refute. You can access two articles presenting that evidence from this link:
In a nutshell, the best evidence came as a series of cross-contacts, in which similar pictures or similar messages were sent to two or more researchers in different countries at about the same time. In most cases those researchers were not collaborating with each other… in fact they were on unfriendly terms. Our spirit friends carefully choreographed those cross-contacts in large part to convince people that these were legitimate spirit contacts. Such things could not be faked… for example a picture coming through a computer in Luxembourg that wasn’t connected to the Internet, and at the same time through a TV in Germany that had no reception.
Once I acquired a Luminator, my own spirit group worked closely with me to get spirit faces appearing quite clearly on Polaroid film. I’d take pictures of people, and when the photo developed there would be faces of people who were not physically present. Those Polaroids, likewise, could not be faked.
So today I have no doubts whatsoever about the legitimacy of the ITC contacts I represent (my own, and those that my colleagues and I received during the years of INIT. (click here to see our INIT group). And I have the same certainty about the early contacts of the Luxembourg couple who I later (1994) helped in establishing INIT. Those early contacts are the subjects of the “ITC Gems” that I’m posting lately.
I realize, though, that my own certainty isn’t enough to convince a skeptical public. I remember a Canadian psychology professor who contacted me on several occasions, expressing what seemed to be a genuine interest and fascination with the ITC contacts I was reporting. Eventually he decided to set up some experiments to determine the legitimacy of technical spirit communication for himself. He started doing some EVP experiments under strict laboratory conditions, got no discernible voices, and then published a paper in a scientific journal, concluding that EVP and ITC are not for real. It was that sort of shallow investigation leading to conclusions that scientists wanted to hear… that finally slammed the science door for me… and I expect it will remain shut until modern science has awakened to spiritual existence. That could take many years.
Anyway, as you two suggest in your comments, there needs to be a general awakening within humanity at large in the coming years… not just for the sake of ITC but for the perpetuation of the species.
Posted on 2022 August 16 by Mark Macy
Matter and energy. This article is about how cosmic forces formed our material universe into a realm of structures (matter) and forces (energy) that we’ve grown familiar with. The scenario below makes sense to me—based on a growing awareness of the source at the center of everything—but it’s speculative. Also, words have their limitations, so discernment is welcome.
How did material universes like ours come to be? That’s what we’ll try to unravel here.
And more important, how do dense physical universes like ours fit into the grand scheme of the cosmos, which is mostly subtle and spiritual… nonmaterial?
Let’s start with what we know, thanks to science.
As life-energy from the source streams and spirals out-beyond to Earth, it creates countless universes and worlds along the way. It’s a perplexing process, but to keep things fairly simple, we can arbitrarily divide that vast cosmos into 7 levels or realms that are all superimposed, or nested within each other. They range from dense worlds of structure at level 1 to light, formless worlds of brilliant consciousness at level 7. Here on Terra, we’re in a material universe at level 1.
300 years ago Isaac Newton noticed that all structures consist of particles (what we’ve come to call atoms).
150 years ago James Clerk Maxwell noticed that structures flourish in a sea of electromagnetic waves (light, electricity, magnetism….)
Since then, we know that our universe consists of matter and energy. Whether we’re observing a planet, a person, or a pinpoint, we’re all made of atoms and atomic energies, which we’ve come to accept as the basic building blocks and basic forces of our universe.
But those building blocks might not be as “basic” as we used to assume. Here are some things we’re learning more recently about atoms and atomic energies:
Atoms are tiny, but their energies are vast (E = mc2), as observed in a nuclear generator or an atomic explosion.
When we delve inside atoms, we find they consist of subatomic particles and waves, which have mystical properties that quantum physicists are only starting to understand. For example:
Particles sometimes become waves, and waves sometimes become particles.
Such transformations can occur when we humans observe them!
(Speculation: if atomic energies are vast, then those waves near the source might be immeasurable—capable of creating and sustaining paradise worlds in our dense universe… or obliterating them if misused.)
The basic “stuff” of our universe might be neither matter nor energy—neither particle nor wave— but “fragments of energy.”
Or just maybe…
It seems that as we delve deeper and deeper into the microcosm, and things get more complicated, we get ever closer to seeing the true essence of life-energy—a glimpse of “God”—the actual process by which the source creates and sustains the material universe.
The process of creation apparently centers around consciousness.
How Consciousness Creates Reality
Our spirit friends communicated with us (INIT members) through phones, radios, and computers in the 1990s, describing their earth-like paradise world at level 3, where most of us awaken after we die. They told us on one occasion:
“While level 3 is a product of the human mind, it is as much a reality as is planet Earth.”
That short message implies that worlds at level 3 (and probably most everything throughout of the vast cosmos) are formed by consciousness. That’s apparently why waves and particles in our world change when we observe them here at level 1. Our thoughts and expectations about them affect them… the same way our thoughts and expectations about our pets can affect them… as researched by frontier scientist Rupert Sheldrake.
Again, quantum physicists observing waves and particles might be getting a glimpse of the true nature of the cosmos as it’s being created, ultimately, by the source. Created by consciousness—the driving force of life-energy.
The Source Creates, We Devise
So the popular term “thoughts are things” takes on real meaning. We create much of our reality with our thoughts, feelings, and expectations. Here’s an extreme example (and I think a very important one). One of our spirit friends (who’d died on one of Earth’s parallel physical worlds) told us:
“The inhabitants of Earth have not only a different view of their world than do those of my home planet, Varid, but also a different physics. For instance, the planet I come from was flat in 600 B.C. It was as flat then as it is round now. The planet has not changed, but the spirit of its inhabitants has. The spirit of man, whether on Earth or Varid, is constantly changing. Man attributes this maturing of intellect to advancements in science and to more accurate methods of investigation….” — Swejen Salter, 1991
Swejen was apparently saying that the actual structure of her home planet, Varid, was defined by the collective consciousness (thoughts and beliefs) of its inhabitants, not by the actual material shape of the planet. That implies, according to the physics of her world, that if everyone on Earth today believed that the Earth is flat, then the Earth would be flat.
Mind-boggling? You bet.* But mysteries like that are bound to greet quantum physicists as they venture ever deeper into the realm of waves and particles, getting ever closer to the source.
*In 1492, when Columbus set off from Europe to find America, most people apparently believed the world was flat. Was it flat? Most of us today would consider the idea preposterous. Is it preposterous? A light being at level 7, close to the source, might reply, “The only truth is in the source. All universes throughout the cosmos are just appearances, mirages that have been devised by the minds of their inhabitants. To find answers to questions like these, explore beyond your perceptions; go to the source.”
How much of our “reality” (matter and energy, particles and waves…) is real? And how much of it is a mirage… an appearance? That’s the crossroads where philosophy and mysticism intersect today with science, especially physics, here on Earth.
No Divine Plan. So life-energy doesn’t just stream out-beyond from the source into the cosmos to create reality according to some kind of divine plan. I believe the source is simply a bundle of infinite, brilliant potential. Life-energy leaves the source as a pure, non-vibrating light or consciousness, then it starts to vibrate slower and slower, becoming denser and denser, as it moves through the omniverse as creative potential.
The living pieces (universes, galaxies, planets, entities like us…) emerge from the life-energy, then they’re free to evolve, explore, and devise new realities as they see fit. How do they devise their new realities? With their consciousness—their thoughts, expectations, and intentions.
The source, I suspect, observes all the activity, intimately aware of what’s going on within each universe, within each flower, within each human life.
The source is always there with its eternal perfection, at the center of everything, to nourish and to support every entity in its evolutionary choices.
If we align to the source and resonate with it, we flourish. If we diverge and cause disharmony, we suffer.
That might be a fundamental premise for existence everywhere in the cosmos:
To Flourish, Consciously Connect to the Source
There are various ways to foster conscious contact with the source, and (for us humans) they all involve, first of all, clearing the mind of its clutter then resting in the silence.
The process typically involves practices like meditation or contemplative prayer.
Here’s a link to my all-time favorite technique—heart meditation—and some additional links for other techniques that can help us humans to foster conscious contact with the source.
The more we consciously connect to the source, the more we feel at one with the cosmos.
That’s where humanity is ultimately heading, I believe: recognizing its oneness with the cosmos—whether led there by scientists or by mystics… or, best-case scenario, by mystical scientists.
