(From Second Thunder by MSI)
This is an invitation to share my vision.
Other worlds lie just beneath the surface of our rational minds.
In one, infinite yet unconscious forces interact mindlessly in chaotic
patterns, creating and destroying as if randomly, by accident.
In another, gods and heroes struggle against manifest evil in the all but
hopeless quest to save their worlds from destruction.
In yet another, every moment without exception unfolds in perfect harmony
with the will of the Creator-Of-All-That-Is.
The experience of alternate universes is more often than not repressed in
our modern age. This is tragic, for repression leads to confusion, to
distorted perception, to fear.
There is nothing in life to fear. Para, the Source Universe which has given rise to all others, floats throughout Eternity as a radiant golden sphere, bathed in the azure flames of the infinite Light and unending love of the omnipotent One. That Universe is perfect. And since it is the Source of all other created universes, all must also be perfect. Apple trees create only apples. Love creates only love. Perfection creates only perfection. It is only identification with the projected dream-worlds that leads to suffering.
This can end at any moment: Para surrounds, underlies and permeates every
particle of the dream worlds. Because this is true, anyone anywhere at any
time can experience the One Ascendant Reality. It can be found anywhere,
but is most easily discovered inside your heart. It is the essence of
every good thing: life, consciousness, joy, love.
The experience of Para results in a state of consciousness named by
various Earth traditions: salvation, nirvana, enlightenment, infinite
Awareness, satori, Cosmic Consciousness, Eternal Freedom, praying without
ceasing, the peace which passes all understanding, Perpetual
Consciousness. The name is supremely unimportant; the content of this
experience is everything.
Whatever we choose to call it, no suffering of any kind is possible in
this state. Life is lived in permanent joy, in infinite love, in unbroken
contact with the Source.
In an instant of frozen time, no longer than the gap between two
heartbeats, a being fully and permanently in contact with the Source
Universe shared his vision with me. This was a free gift, a wordless
joining of his infinite mind with mine.
In the years that have passed since that magical, suspended instant, I
have only begun to appreciate what this means to my life, to remember that
which I long ago knew fully well but then forgot. I am an Unbounded Being.
Living in a human body, I experience the infinite Ascendant continually.
The Thunder books are an attempt to explain this state of consciousness,
to describe the Reality of the wonder of this experience.
Words are finite, limited tools, most loved by longing minds. They will
forever fall short of the experience of Truth. Truth is lived and can be
shared; the best words can do is point the finger of understanding at it.
Words can say, "The Moon is there." They do not and cannot give the
experience of the Moon. At their best, they will inspire one to seek the
experience they describe.
Seeking the Black Ishayas records a series of visions and experiences I
had while studying with the Ishayas. The total elapsed time was only
several days, but the total vision time was of many years.
The experiences flowing through me were far removed in space and time from
the reality of this world. They were of a series of other lifetimes that
uncannily paralleled the outer occurrences among my friends, particularly
Edg and Sharon, at and around the Ishayas' monastery.
During this period, I fought a life and death struggle with my ego. It
nearly mastered me on four separate occasions -- not coincidentally, after
the instruction in the Second Sphere Solar Technique, the Lunar Technique,
the Earth Technique and the Second Cognition. The visions inspired by
learning each of these techniques coincided exactly with changes in my
personal life that were intense and, in one case, as terrible as I could
have ever dreamed possible: the loss of Sharon.
If I had known from the beginning how much I would give up to gain
enlightenment would I have continued on? Probably not. Only in hindsight
do I see the beauty inherent in my personal tragedy.
Everyone's path is different. The incredible ease with which some grow
under the Ishayas' care never ceases to amaze me. I look at my life and it
seems I have always chosen the hardest possible path -- and yet I know
there was no other choice for me. And there are others who have suffered
much more greatly.
Whatever it takes. That is the only attitude that is real,
the only attitude that works, the only attitude that assists one to reach
the goal. Whatever I have to do in order to realize enlightenment, that I
will do. This was the viewpoint I adopted in the Himalayas, and the only
one that could have carried me through my trials to the end.
For those who seek enlightenment, no other frame of mind can be
substituted for this one. No other frame of mind will succeed. One must be
willing to give up everything -- every belief, every judgment, every
attachment -- then only can there be progress. For it is exactly where one
digs in one's heels and says, "So far and no farther" that the ego draws
It is not possessions, it is attachments which cause trouble. What must be
given up? Nothing. What must one be willing to give up? Everything. When
one is ready to be free from everything, life begins in earnest. The
dawning of the True Light is never far behind.
The Thunder series describes the opening of the consciousness of the human
race to ever deeper and subtler experiences of enlightenment. There exists
a collective consciousness of humanity that underlies and permeates all of
our beliefs and experiences. This collective identity is responsible for
most of our world-views and individual experiences of reality. To change
this collective belief system is typically quite slow, as it takes
continual effort on the part of many over a long period of time.
In this and the subsequent books, the collective consciousness of humanity
is personified and individualized as Lord Gana, a semi-divine prince who
lived far before recorded history. Since Gana is the representative of all
humanity, his struggles to master his own beliefs and judgments have the
effect of transforming everyone else. At times aware of his universal
status, at times ignorant of it, Gana moves through various
life-experiences in the attempt to master the lower aspects of his nature
and rise to complete consciousness. This continues with ever-greater
complexity as his understanding of the connection of the individual to the
Gana does not work alone. He is never long without divine inspiration --
which most often takes the form of an unusual master of form
transmutation, the Vidyadhara Airavata, also known as Heramann. Airavata
is quite old and quite wise, the last of the ancient Vidyadharas, an
intelligent race that was prevalent before the descent of our current
human species. Usually unaware of his subtle and Eternal connection to the
underlying essence of the incarnations of Gana, Heramann is nevertheless
often drawn to assist him in his growth.
The omnipotent Power of the upward current of the Laws of Nature is also
always present to support Gana; but he is not often aware of this. This
force is personified as his feminine aspect, Almira. Almira is the second
half of Gana's soul, ever conscious; she is the Goddess, always in divine
communion with the One; she is the Earth Mother, the Source of all Good
for humanity, the personified Holy Spirit.
Gana is also ever watched, protected and guided by the incarnate wisdom of
higher consciousness, portrayed in the Thunder books as his seven Teachers
Vasuki, Mordom, Rodavi, who was later reborn as Joab, Vaga, Atri, Brihas,
and Matri. Their relationship to Gana is one of gentle guidance and
All the other characters in this History are either manifestations of
partial aspects of Gana's infinite mind or else are his creations. Some of
these creations are positive and represent the creative forces of nature:
his children and the peoples he attempts to save from destruction and
guide to higher levels of understanding. And some of these creations are
negative, the destructive forces of nature personified and given form by
Gana's incomplete understanding of life: the Emperor Valin and Valin's
agents and minions, the Asurs and Rakshasas. In both cases, although
having independent form and life, all his creations remain rooted in
Thus the rest of the Thunder series is a history of humanity's age-old
attempts to achieve a stable and upwardly directed civilization. They
stand also as a description of an individual's journey to enlightenment
through numerous births.
Either reading is correct, for we are continually creating our own world.
We project our beliefs and judgments outward; these return to us as our
experiences of others, of history, of life, of matter. Each of us dreams
our own world -- this means that each of us is ultimately responsible for
our own creation. And therefore, each of us can change any of the rules
governing our world at any time, resulting in a completely different
world-view and a completely different world. Full realization of this
simple fact is an acceptable definition of enlightenment. It is the
Ishayas' hope that learning of the different levels of reality woven into
this work will assist others to rise more quickly to the recognition of
their primary authority in their own worlds. Then the healing of this
Earth will be the sooner accomplished.
