About the Book
Among the most easily recognized mystic communications are riddles, parables, fables… it is woven in symbols, dreams, allegory, apocrypha, metaphor and psycho-speak. Mystic writers often speak of being in a trance, dream-state, altered-consciousness, or channeling god or other entities from beyond.
Within the context of their writing they are communicating some-thing other than what is read at the surface… there is the literal meaning; often misunderstood or not understood at all and there is the veiled meaning; often misunderstood or unnoticed.
Philosophers, in an attempt to make the deeper meaning more esoteric, use words to paint mental pictures to aid in communicating the basic underlying message, often lost in its complexities.
Scientists use symbols and codifications thinking this will help the layman to understand science at a more basic level. However, one must first come to understand the symbols and codes in order to understand the message and one cancels out the other.
So, why have these writers throughout history used such obscure methods to say some-thing that should be easy to say?
*For ages, people who spoke in opposition to the laws of man and of gods were persecuted.
*To speak about the ethereal world or to acknowledge communication with entities outside of our world would usually lead to being labeled insane and at times, could actually get one 'institutionalized'.
*To speak or write about anything not in the flow of mainstream thinking would discredit anything and every-thing else one might say or write.
*Handing off enlightened knowledge to those who may misinterpret and/or misuse the information could lead to unfavorable consequences.
Mystic writing or speaking is meant for those who are able to understand – there are many fables told to children that still have to be retold or explained in order for them to understand the underlying message.

I've spent my entire life passing through realms searching for the meaning of life. Our reality is so much more than what we see & hear. The tangible is an illusion & distracts us from true wisdom; true enlightenment.There are sounds so high we cannot hear them, but dogs can. There are sounds so low we cannot hear, yet elephants and whales can hear it for miles. There are scents that we are not equipped to pick up & tastes our tongue will never experience. The eagle can fly miles from the ground and see a small rodent take its last breath before their mighty talons have claimed its life. Perhaps it's not too much to imagine that when I extend my hand, someone on the other side reaches out & touches mine. It's possible that my thoughts have wings & the intentions manifested here do change destiny. We have language yet there are many things that we cannot express because there are no words for them yet. They will come. As creators, we are catalysts; pay attention to the arts- listen.
