Smashwords Interview

You say you regularly chat with your deceased wife on the pendulum. What's that all about?
I stumbled upon pendulum communication with the deceased over thirty years years ago when I dabbled with the medical concept of self-diagnosis using a pendulum. Although the information I received was extraordinary and compelling, I rejected it and refused to accept the idea that there were spirits floating about and communicating with the living. The whole thing made no sense at all, particularly as the information received was either cryptic, vague, ambivalent, incoherent or just downright wrong. And, of course, always unverifiable. I had been an atheist since I was a student, but was a big fan of Zen and the Tao; even if one's individual consciousness or personal life energy continued to exist for some period after death, the duality and the simplistic fantasy of floating or wandering souls was childish nonsense which had nothing to do with Zen or the Tao.
Can you give me an example of what you mean?
Certainly. We refer to past lives when we talk about re-incarnation, for example. But there is no time outside of our current experience. So all lives are present. In other words, you are living your 'past' lives right now, and, indeed, 'future' lives. There is only one you, of course, but you enjoy the experience of multiple lives and personalities. These lives can 'bleed' into one another from time to time and, yes, you can change the past. Of course, this sounds like crazy talk and is impossible to understand with your mind. True knowledge, true understanding, has got nothing to do with the mind as we know it. I like the story of the two caterpillars on the branch having a chat. A butterfly flits by and one of them says to the other: 'You'll never see me up in one of those things.' For many thousands of years, a very small number of people had the privilege of tasting this awareness. Now, in the 21st century, tens of millions of people worldwide are, at the very least, aware. 'On the path', as they say; many even awakened. Indeed, it is like waking up and opening your eyes for the first time in your life.
