2013 — the year ahead

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?

  1. This is so well said. Since it is Dec. 23rd 2012, and we and the world are still here, let us allow a new look at what human “evolution” can really look like. Besides, it makes life so much fuller and more fun.

  2. Ditto, very well said indeed.

    This Christmas began without any P.C.or any of the famous Computers with the Internet connections.
    Imagine to be without any P.C.s(or I-pads, or I-pods !?!) it is impossible nowadays.
    That`s a new Revelation.

    BUT, one way or the other have ordered a new book BEFORE the P.C.s vanishing(which made the free time of to read the particular book in the past three weeks)by a Neurosurgeon`s Journey into the Afterlife.
    Gosh,he is the one who`ll try of to convince the fellow colleagues, the doctors and the scientists of Proof of “Heaven and the afterlife.
    What a task he is committed of to do!?!
    The book is of Eben Alexander, M.D.
    And Raymond A. Moody, Jr., M.D.,Ph.D.,author of Life After Life, have written about the particular book:
    “Dr. Eben Alexander`s near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon.
    (He) is living proof of an afterlife.”

    If not of to have been convinced before(after of to have read the books by Franks as well naturally)is it time of TO BELIEVE in the facts right here and now !!!

    Wishing a continued Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all friends in the earth and elsewhere as well.
