Elements of Creation

( 1 )


There are moments in your life when everything you know of evaporates in the blink of an eye, and all that you understand of the world disappears forever. Nothing remains as it was, and everything in your life changes. You can never be the same as you were before, and you find it harder to go back to your previous life.

I can remember when I first laid eyes upon it. It pulled me into its field of vibration and towered well above me. There was little I could do but to watch in ...

There are moments in your life when everything you know of evaporates in the blink of an eye, and all that you understand of the world disappears forever. Nothing remains as it was, and everything in your life changes. You can never be the same as you were before, and you find it harder to go back to your previous life.

I can remember when I first laid eyes upon it. It pulled me into its field of vibration and towered well above me. There was little I could do but to watch in silence how the realm would unfold. Little did I know as the scene developed, that it was me who had created the spiraling animation.

The aforementioned scenes are from my encounter with what I have come to characterize as the "Circle Dance." It first appeared to me while traveling in India, such a strange thing in such an exotic place. When the "Circle Dance" pulled me in for the first time, the circumstances did not create any alarm. However, I did wonder, "What does the Dance want of me?"

I ask that you walk with me as I use the words on these pages to tell you what the "Circle Dance" has revealed to me. There may be some parts of the story that appear to be fearful, and those things may test your beliefs. I do ask that you keep in mind throughout this narrative, what I recite upon these pages, is my discovery, mine alone. Mine, in the way the "Circle Dance" has altered my humanness and how that knowledge now dictates my comprehension of the Universe. It matters not, regarding all the circumstances involved, how I have come across this communication, because it is right for me. The wisdom given to me by the "Circle" harmonizes with my sense of being, but may not for you. The conceptsfrom that experience, are about to be described are for you to take what you will, that which makes sense to you, make it yours, and discard the rest.

As we travel further into my creation, through the use of this book, the most important thing to remember is this: We are all perfect in what we have created. Each of us creates what is best for us, and in the excitement of that process, we desire to share that creation with others.

This book was not written to change your mind about anything. It has been produced so that you can consider alternative possibilities. There is no one true and correct way to stumble upon the intelligence of the Gods, just to know that it is there for you.

    Elements of Creation Review by Bernie P. Nelson

    The author is initiated into The Circle Dance and encounters The Beast while traveling in India. This results in a mind-bending concept about life, our body, and the concept of time and space. This reviewer while reading was nudged into introspective meditation questioning, 'What is true reality?' Reading more, cognitive sparklers illuminated this reviewer's mind when confronted with postulations such as, 'Death is a symptom of paying too much attention to time.' The author discovers that your life is not your body, your experiences, or even an apparition. To learn about a new concept of life, time, and space, this work is a must-read. Reader, please fasten your seat belt. It's an exciting, brilliant, transformative trip!
