The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe is one of these short and sweet titles. It is a bibliographical account of a brilliant man of this century - one Walter Russell - who appears to have been sadly overlooked as someone we all should know. I'm not against us keeping stats on and remembering always the world's greatest athletes - sports seem an important part of our lives for what they represent. But when we remember every great athlete without remembering the greatest spiritual pioneers, I wonder about priorities.
So much can be learned from the life of Walter Russell, and I believe he is one man we could teach about in schools in order to exemplify spiritual principles without preaching and persuading. A life is a much more powerful example than any words, and as we look at Mr. Russell's life, we can perceive how a different approach can bestow such a very different result! Probably my favorite example from within the book is when it tells of Russell taking a summer job as a bellboy, and startling himself by refusing his first tip. Tips were the primary income for bellboys, and the only real reason to take the job ... one would think. When he came to grips with his action, he decided he would refuse all tips from that point on, yet would work harder and offer more service to the guests than anyone else. The results are astounding, as he won the hearts of all the guests, including many wealthy ones who returned their support in other ways.
This kind of living brought Mr. Russell into quite influential company, and he commanded the respect of all as he began dominating a number of fields - from the sciences to the arts - that he entered into. His early theories on the universe are today being confirmed. And how did he become so dominant? The answer is as simple as a spiritual experience, which awakened him to the simple principles of the universe. It is from these principles that all else is derived, and living from these principles meant great success for Walter Russell, as I believe it would for anyone living them.
This book is really just an introduction to Walter Russell's ideas and philosophy (as well as an excellent account of all that he accomplished). If you tackle this little and inexpensive volume (my edition is about 55 pages minus many pictures), you may well find yourself wanting to pursue what Russell himself wrote - and there is plenty to be found. This is a book to try out, and to give away to others!
"All my life I have been looking for a man who has discovered the Universal Law which lies back of the sermon on the mount, and who conciously uses that law with full awarenes of its meaning, and full obedience to its principles."
"If I could find such a man,I though to myself, He would be so cosmiclly aware of the Light of God that he would know the Spiritual Cause of all Effect."
Clark was looking for a man who had achieved Cosmic Consciousness. This man would know God the Cause of all Effect. When Russell talks about the Light he is talking about God. In Hebrew Kabbalah it would be Ain Soph Aur or the Limitless Light! This man would understand how the Universe worked and would be able to do anything he desired to achieve. This is why he was able to excell in many different areas of knowledge. This is why it is important for you to know about this man!
Read his book "Atomic Suicide" to get the overall picture of his ideas. There are many other books for those on the Path of enlightment by Walter Russell. Do not listen to the fools that have belittled him for they are ignorant of the Truth! Frater J.A.
This little 55 page book doesn't go into too much details of the life of Walter Russell, it touches upon his accomplishments and success in all areas of his life and leaves out dwelling on any suffering he went through to accomplish great things but it does talk about HOW he did it.
The best part of this book, besides giving us a glimpse into the life of an extraordinary man, is that it points the way for each of us to find that same measure of greatness within ourselves - if we choose to do so.
Some have reviewed this as "stupidity" but the mans success speaks for itself and "stupidity" and sarcasm will not find you greatness...
I enjoyed reading this book very much and hope you do to!
