Telepathy/Thought Transference.

Be it from human to human, animal to animal or human to animal how does telepathy [thought transference] work? We all know that we sometimes feel something when we meet or see someone, or even, sometimes, hear of someone. We call this feeling “vibes”. We also know, for instance, that animals are…

Attachments and Enlightenment.

A Startling and Uncomfortable Awareness.

Accompanying the awareness of the reality of karma can be the difficulty of coping with the awareness that there is no such thing as a "tragedy", an "innocent", an "accident" etcetera; of coping with the necessity of saying to oneself, "These people have brought these things upon themselves."…

Creation - the Big Bang.

There was no Big Bang. The Big Bang theory stems from the fact that the human mind thinks in terms of time and space.
