Books Presenting the Philosophy
In the stillness, a voice spoke to me. It said, "draw a line."
It wasn't the same voice that spoke to me late one night on my way home that said, move to the center of the street. It repeated its warning, as I did not listen the first time. Move to the center of the street. This time I responded a split second before the door to a parked car flew open and the driver emerged. I would have hit him.
This voice was different. It was not interceding on behalf of my life. It was speaking to me on behalf of all people--those who felt lost and abandoned and broken as well as those who know and care for their loved ones who cannot seem to find their place of relevance in this world. This voice was different. And I listened. It began, draw a line.
Over the years that followed, I wrote down every word. It was an amazing time because I never knew when it would show up and what would be offered that day. I made sure I had paper and pen available, always. And time.
In 2005, I published these communications in my first book titled Journeys in the Life of the Soul. I strived to present the text word for word exactly as I had received it. But, I struggled with two things: 1) the voice's proclivity to place the subject of the sentence at the end of the sentence, and 2) the fact that they began many sentences with the word for. For as you move, or For those in the light regional experience... I tell you this so those of you who are intellectuals will not struggle with the departures of context and delivery used by this voice. It was explained to me many years later that the placement of the subject at the end of the sentence was for my benefit and designed to distance me from my proclivity to prejudge the conversation and make assumptions.
Without the subject, I simply wrote down each word as I heard it. The understanding came at the end. I would sometimes question a word choice. And they always patiently explained how it was the right word. These explanations birthed many lightbulb moments illuminating the field of experience and all the places this new truth transformed its meaning. These moments of epiphany generally stopped everything as I would watch it skip through and touch here and there creating this ripple effect. If there were more than three touchdowns, a major belief would shift. So I learned to look forward to the questionable word choices and let go of the pen as the stories shifted in its wake. Those were great days and my enthusiasm for what I began to call the downloads delivered me to a more patient presence. In the second edition of Journeys in the Life of the Soul, I did take a few liberties to restructure sentences moving the subject to the beginning of the sentence. They were okay with that and corrected me when it changed the meaning.
Originally published in 2005, Journeys in the Life of the Soul is the first in a series of books that introduce The Lifeline Teachings. The Lifeline Teachings address the key aspects of life and how all of life works creatively. Through The Lifeline Model presented in this book, we are able to visualize how each lifetime is formed revealing its timelines, the formation of its base identity and change points, and creative options for the current lifetime.
The teachings presented in this book were insights received through a meditative practice, and are delivered in the original text as it was received. It is currently out of print but can be found at independent book dealers via Amazon and Ebay.
An updated version of the book will be available in 2021. To join our online community classes around these teachings, please CLICK HERE.
The Lifeline Teachings offers a continuation of the first book, applying The Lifeline Model to 8 different vantage points purposed to help you understand how you are wired to create and how that impacts your ability to create at-will and according to your own code. Through these vantage points, you will be able to pinpoint where you are in your creative timeline and what will be easy or difficult to create. And it will also give you awareness for how to create even then the task is difficult.
