exploring self-realization, sacred personhood, and full humanity
return to the "contents" page
About twenty years ago, in the middle of the night, I suddenly found
myself jarred from sleep, catapulted into an upright position. An
unfamiliar phrase, two words, immediately accosted my spirit:
In that mystical moment of 3 AM darkness, I seemed to know something
else – I knew that I’d been given the title of a book.
What you need to know before reading Prometheus Denied
The conversations of Kairissi and Elenchus provide opportunity for me to
share what I’ve learned concerning many important topics, such as, the
nature of authentic romance and spirituality, the meaning of suffering,
and the sacred purpose of marriage. The content of the lovers’ dialogues,
in the main, I believe, represents reality, how “life in the world unseen”
truly works – but for one aspect.
There is no conscious pre-birth state.
Our featured Twin-Soul couple is presented as never having endured
mortality on the Earth and is engaged in discussions concerning whether
to do so. Generally speaking, this is not the way it happens. While we do
enjoy an existence prior to any terra-mission, it is not a fully-conscious
life – there is no conscious-coherent pre-birth state of being. The very
purpose of our journeying to the difficult Earth-world is to help us “wake
up,” to become aware and sentient persons.
The pop-culture says otherwise.
It is fashionable these days to believe in so-called past lives,
reincarnation, pre-birth activities in heaven, and the like. None of this is
true. These claims survive only by a selective acceptance of facts while
ignoring large tracts of evidence that contradict. Pre-birth consciousness,
in all its forms, is the proverbial “mule that should have been a horse.”
On the Word Gems site I devote many hundreds of pages analyzing and
discussing these issues in detail and cannot do so again here. I suggest
that you read the full presentation at www.wordgems.net.
Is the information-source trustworthy and competent?
Many afterlife-information sources fail us on both counts. The Word
Gems articles explain the basis for this assertion. For the moment,
however, I will offer you the studied opinion and careful research of
James Webster, a retired medical professional and afterlife-researcher
for more than 60 years.
James took part in the famous Scole Afterlife Experiments in the 1990s,
investigated by many scientists. These experiments provide some of the
most stunning evidence for the Next World ever produced. Today James
serves as archival custodian for the Rick Rickard tapes from the 1960s,
“direct-voice medium” recordings of channeled afterlife entities.
For over 20 years, I’ve personally investigated a large number of afterlife
information-sources, but I consider the Rickard tapes to be among
the very best. One of the astral-realm persons speaking via Rickard’s
mediumship was an ancient Egyptian, now an advanced teacher on the
other side for 3500 years. He came to be known as “Abu,” which means
“father” or “teacher.” Abu, in my estimation, is one of the wisest, the most
balanced mind, of any afterlife-entity I’ve encountered.
James shared with me the following, a transcript of direct testimony from
Abu on the subject of pre-birth existence:
The Earth-plane is the plane of individualisation and crystallisation
of spirit. There is no individual consciousness before the
individualising process commences.
The process of individualisation commences very shortly after
conception … when the spirit, that is to say, the psyche … begins
to develop together with, contemporaneously with, the physical
[A fully aware and functioning mind] prior to conception? No. I
cannot hold such a view for it would necessarily conflict completely
with what I understand to be the whole process of individualisation
of spirit from the common pool of the all-pervading spirit that is.
Until that [non-individualized spirit] shall have crystallised into an
individual, there is no [conscious] individual to have a memory
or to undergo experiences.
This additional item was offered by James:
It should be noted that Abu did not accept or teach the theory of
reincarnation. Such belief did not fit the individualisation of the
“self” process which is a one-of normal experience of Earth-living.
He felt no such urge to reincarnate and had not met or known
anyone in the etheric planes who had. His one Earth incarnation,
it is claimed, was in ancient Egypt 3500 years ago.
While the world of Summerland itself is very real, pre-mortal-birth Twins,
such as Kairissi and Elenchus, do not debate the Earth-mission. This
would not be possible for them, as Abu explained, for they would still
very much exist as “baby souls,” and therefore would not be conscious
and coherent enough, not yet fully “crystallized” as individuals, to engage
in discourse prior to the mortal state on Earth.
As this is the case, then who plans the Earth-mission for these cognitively-
unformed “baby souls”? This task would fall to Spirit Guides who
understand and perceive the essential natures and potential desires of
their “infant”-charges. Armed with this insight, the Guides will design
and craft Earth-life activities and lessons-to-be-learned for proto-lovers
conforming to what the future couple would want, what they ought to
want, in terms of highest-and-best interest, given unique talents and
This is the macro-picture sense in which I would encourage you to view
the subsequent fervent discussions between Kairissi and Elenchus.
