First Harvest Interview
So what are your books about?
Oh, theyre about everything and how to see everything.
Wow, thats quite a huge net.
Yeah, it is.
What do you mean by how to see everything?
Well, you know. Everythings happening so fast nowadays.
That logic doesnt really help us see much. I think its
better to see and feel this speed-up in more intuitive ways.
What do you mean by this?
Well, we need to look at all these things in a big picture kind
of way. We need to put everything thats going on inside
a magic circle; and even if things dont fit with each
other well. At least theyre all together in this circle
and we can then just look at the big mess with all its messy
beauty; and start looking for links and relationshipseven
if we really cant instantly see them.
Can you give an example?
Yeah, sure. For instance in the Harvest of Gems books, especially
the last two. The reader is forced to hop from one level of
reality to the next with very little warning. But the hopping
even though its abrupt is really a lot of fun. Things
that dont seem to have a lot of connections with each
other are put next to each other and the result is often surprising.
We start to learn something new about ourselves and our enviornments.
Its really a miracle.
Can you please elaborate?
Yeah, in the third Harvest book, the characters in the chapters
keep popping up in different forms through out the book. Its
like an echo process and the writing is multi-sensory. The reader
sees, hears, smells, feels, and tastes everything on all kinds
of levels. Like being in Calcutta, then suddenly being pushed
into outer-space and then suddenly yanked again into inner-space.
Wait a minute. What do you mean by inner-space?
I mean the subtle places like spirit realms. Demon hells, you
know. And even different kinds of heavens.
Whats all this weird kind of hopping for?
Its because all these levels exist within our universe
and they effect each other. I just want to capture them for
a minute and put them all together inside the magic circle and
let the reader feel the richness of all this complexity.
Why do you want to do this?
Because this is what art does. Its a kind of psychic insurance
in a time of speedy confusion. It stabilizes the readers
mind and prevents any kind of space-out from this sensory overload.
You see, art captures everything for an instant and lets
the reader explore that complex instant over and over again.
As much as is needed.
This sounds pretty fascinating.
Yeah, it is. But my books also have a spiritual message. They
thus give the reader even more insurance by forcing the reader
to look into his or her heart and mind, you know. And seeing
that thats where we have to do all our spiritual work.
What do you mean by spiritual work?
I mean that each and everyone of us needs to see that really
looking at our hearts and minds allows us to see where we always
trip ourselves up and that by then making life this perpetual
kind of meditation we then manage to cleanse ourselves of bad
thoughts and feelings by looking at them closely and feeling
them. Seeing them and learning from them. Its a really
But what about God?
Gods around watching all this and so are all kinds of
other higher forces. You see, we are not alone and when we really
try to see ourselves this closely we get all the help we need.
We all finally start to see how our thoughts and feelings effect
everything around us and this is what the magic circle really
shows us. How our minds and how our thoughts interact with everything
around us in all kinds of good and bad ways.
Is this magic circle like a kind of microscope?
Actually, its a microscope and a macroscope and many multi-scopes
all rolled into one and what you see through them is always
changing. You know its kind of fun and terrifying too.
Its like flying in your mind and also in every other mind
that you encounter. My books show you how to do it without getting
into too many psychic flying accidents. Its a skill we
all really need to learn now. Thats why I call it
intuition on demand.
Its learning to see and feel things all at once and then
making decisions from this symultaneous seeing and feeling.
Its really great when you get the knack of it.
Have your own meditations within the magic circle given you
an intuitive vision of where were going?
Yeah, but it sounds like science fiction. I think a global mind
is being born.
Can you elaborate on that?
Yeah, its like all the different kinds of media since
the first world war have been kind of accumulating and allowing
the collective conscious to self-reflect in a collective way
more and more.
Can you explain this more clearly?
Yeah, its like every individual because he or she can
think and write. He or she can jump out of himself or herself
and see himself or herself from a new angle. Its like
seeing a movie of yourself. Well, all the new media, movies,
radio, TV, and the web allow us all to jump out of ourselves
collectively. Were starting to see a global movie of ourselves
more and more on a daily basis. But we dont know what
this new movie means. In fact, we cant even really see
ourselves seeing this global movie very clearly yet. Its
still a novel idea. The experience still hasnt been integrated
yet into our confused and overloaded minds.
This is interesting. Can you tell me more about this vision
Its not really a vision yet. Its more like opening
a door into a dark room and lighting a match and seeing a few
vague shapes and trying to connect them. Its like theres
been this progressive series of psychic big bangs since the
First World war and each shock has been then recorded by more
and more new media while each new shock is also being experienced
by more and more people. This has created a bigger and more
intrusive global movie for all of us to watch regardless of
whether we wanted to participate in this new movie or not.
Whats been the end result of all this?
We dont really know yet. This collective self-reflection
is possibly leading to a global mind being born. All of us watching
this unfolding global movie are really just this global mind
being slowly born. This process is probably causing a lot of
collective anxiety right now. Especially since the big news
bang of 9/11.
What do you mean?
Well, the contents of this global movie keep changing. The psychic
big bangs are like birth contractions. Hiroshima, Auschwitz,
the Cuban missile crisis, Dallas, the Moon walk, the view of
the earth from space, the fall of the Berlin wall, the collapse
of the USSR, the Gulf war, and now 9/11. These shocks are all
pushing the global mind out of its fetal stage.
You mean our global mind is like a baby?
Yeah, its very Kubrick-like this new scenario. Once this
baby is born. What will it do once it recognizes its powers?
What kind of education will this baby get as it grows up and
what will the content of this education be? Can this baby meditate
and self-reflect outwardly to other parts of the universe? Can
this global mind baby see even bigger movies?
This sounds like science fiction.
Well, it didnt really start this way. I was interested
at first in discovering the essence of the spiritual path during
my travels, but when I started to do a few global pilgrimages
and I met many great spiritual masters and experienced their
great psychic powers. I naturally started putting two and two
together. I also studied the history of the media as a university
student. And you see this global mind baby is just taking its
first baby steps right now and it barely recognizes that it
even exists. Most human babies are like that too. They have
no clue to their full potential. They have to learn about it
This is a really awesome stuff.
Well, this global mind baby is still feeling the dissonance
of its birth. All of us make up make up this global mind baby.
The fetal stage is probably ending and the birth contractions
are coming on faster and faster now. The confusion were
all feeling is the unfamiliarity of this new enviornment and
our basic ignorance of its new evolutionary rules.
Were still in the dark I guess. But what could happen?
Well, lets say enough people dont want terrorism
to spread anymore. This kind of civilizational illness could
be stopped in its tracks if enough people that make up the global
mind just said NO to the whole thing. Then it
would simply cease like cancer is sometimes mentally stopped
by a few really spiritually gifted people when it invades their
bodies. Ive seen this happen with cancer patients who
had strong minds and also with spiritual masters who have great
healing powers. Its all in our minds.
Wow, thank you so much.
