A few weeks ago, New Dawn, an Australian magazine, asked me, among others, for a few words on “2013 The Year Ahead.” This is what I sent them. (New Dawn may be found at www.newdawnmagazine.com)
2013 The Year Ahead
By Frank DeMarco
Last year, the world failed to end. It keeps doing that, I notice. Even though we are repeatedly threatened, or promised, that “the end of the world as we know it” is near, it never seems to come about. Or could it be that it’s happening and we’re not noticing?
What if 2013 turned out to be the year we learned to spend less attention on politics and ideology and conspiracies (real, distorted or imaginary), and more on our unbreakable and invaluable but often neglected connections with the non-physical world?
It needn’t be hard. The first step is to see our lives differently.
Telepathy, communication with the disembodied, and ordinary physical communication are usually considered to be different things. But the process of communication is the same in each case. Our minds connect with other minds and interact. The difference in the three cases is who is on the other end of the line. A while ago, the disembodied entities I call The Guys Upstairs gave me three keys to these puzzles of communication.
1. Although the brain is located in the physical world, mind operates in the non-physical. Our bodies can’t move backward or forward in time, but our minds do, and they do it all the time, effortlessly.
2. Communication between minds always takes place under non-physical conditions. Our bodies keep even the most ardent of lovers separate, but our minds know no such boundary.
3. Communication, whether between two minds or several, involves the creation of a temporary joint mind. To some degree what one mind knows, everyone involved knows.
Given these facts, maybe it’s time to do less looking outward and more looking inward.
To be more precise, maybe it’s time we realized that our inner connections are the only way to repair our outer circumstances. In our inward-looking moments, we recognize that everything is connected. Why should we forget it as soon as we put our attention to “external” events?
An old Russian saying has it that “Two people can keep a secret, if one of them is dead.” Maybe not. Since everything is connected, and since we are all unbreakably connected to the non-physical side of life, maybe the way to a better, freer, more open society is through closer connection Upstairs, individual by individual.
Now there’s a revolution! There’s the end of the world as we know it, and about time! Why shouldn’t 2013 become the year that we remembered our home in the non-physical world, without forgetting how to function in the physical world at the same time?
