An Invitation to the Sublime
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
The human race is at the tipping point of disaster, desperate for transformation. Crises of every kind—social, economic, political, ecological, and spiritual—pose seemingly insurmountable challenges to mankind. And as if the stress of watching the evening news weren’t enough, we’re all forced daily to deal with our own social, economic, and spiritual crises.
Overwhelmed by everything from the pace of technology to too much to do in too little time to expenses that exceed our income, we long to reconnect—with sanity, with nature, with ourselves. We’re turning by the millions to spiritual practices, such as meditation, yoga, and mindfulness. We’re choosing alternative medicine, such as mind-body and energy medicine. And we’re realizing that the madness within humanity—which is both accelerating and intensifying—can be transmuted by only one thing: a shift in consciousness.
Such a shift in consciousness is the topic of Awakening the Holographic Human: Nature’s Path to Healing and Higher Consciousness. In this book, I have attempted to articulate the state of beauty that resides in every human being, the state that can be lived by anyone as limitations are cleared. This infinite, supernatural state is a state of higher consciousness capable of anything—cognizing, healing, manifesting, understanding, and compassion—all beyond our ordinary comprehension of what it means to be human.
The true glory of this supernatural state is that it allows us to shift from a personal state of reference to a transpersonal experience of living, one that is not limited by the conditions of our personal reality.
Transpersonal living allows us to view our lives from a more objective perspective; as we grow in the ability to allow and accept, we are no longer bogged down by our personal “stories.” We no longer fall victim to our beliefs, thoughts, and reactions—are no longer enslaved by them.
To go beyond the personal is to go deep into the Mystery, the Sacred, the Sublime. This state has been revealed to me over the years through Nature, through experiences of intimate communion with what I call “the personal cosmos.” Mother Earth is generous in the tools she offers us humans, and my own revelations have been well served through the experience of flowers, herbs, gems, colors, and energy when applied within the universal templates of the chakras and the stars—blueprints of Nature that contain codes for us to enliven and elevate our consciousness to that of the “holographic human.” I joyfully share my experience and knowledge of these blueprints and gifts with you in this book.
My self-inquiry into the holographic human revealed a composite of universal templates in the zodiac and chakra systems. Early on my life’s path, as I began an in-depth study of the mystery teachings and esoteric sciences, I discovered that these subtle and celestial templates resonated harmonically with earth-based materials and energy forms—plants, herbs, gems, light, and color. These templates—composites of our own psyche, or soul potential—form the basis of all human experience and of an awakening of consciousness that is beyond our ability to imagine.
With the rising popularity of modern and ancient cosmological systems, healing traditions, and spiritual sciences, human consciousness has begun turning an eye both inward and toward the heavens to more fully examine and understand the nature of personal reality and how to expand beyond it into something greater: the holographic human.
This book is a guide that can illumine the personal pathway as the veils are lifted and one merges into a fluid, holographic field.
