PALM BAY, FL–In the preface to The Benefits of Mystical Oneness , I mention taking a “leap of faith” as the first step on the mystical path to enlightenment. This “leap” is where the spiritual seeker stops thinking of herself as a mortal human being, and starts living as if she is an eternal soul.
Once she makes the leap (not just thinking about being a soul, but actually living as if she were one), she–quite simply–loses the fear of death. Without this fear, her spiritual growth accelerates exponentially–and her life changes dramatically.
So how do we do this? How do we convince ourselves that we are a Soul?
You’ve heard and read stories of people who have claimed to have “gone beyond” and returned. Maybe you’ve had some visions yourself. The problem is, most of us aren’t naive–many of us are naturally skeptical. We’ll often dismiss these stories–even our own memories–as fantasy or delusion.
In order make such a dramatic change to our core identity, what we need is evidence that the Soul is real. Evidence. Verifiable accounts and studies by the scientific community.
Below is but a tiny piece of a massive amount of evidence in support of the human soul. I hope, after reading it, that it helps convince you that we are not merely human beings, but eternal Souls who cannot die. I hope with this evidence, that the jump from the edge of the cliff down into the Abyss–the first step toward Mystical Oneness–becomes just a little bit easier to make.
More below the break (huh?).
