I'm a very intellectual person, so I immediately saw all the logical fallacies in most religions and didn't believe them because of it. I just assumed it was all wishful thinking. I remember the moment I realized I didn't believe in god... I was 5 or 6 years old and caught my mother pretending to be the tooth fairy. I realized that it was all made up and thought god must be as well. The same applied to the idea of extra-terrestrials / extra-dimensionals visiting us in the past/present... Why the heck wouldn't they just come out and communicate with us if they were visiting us? To be honest, I never really gave it hardly any thought. I was just of the currently common mindset of scientifically minded atheists and assumed there was most likely plant / animal life on other planets hundreds of lightyears away at minimum and there certainly wasn't any self-aware life anywhere near us, otherwise we would be picking up radio signals from them.
Leading up to what I refer to as my 'awakening', I was extremely depressed and was pretty close to dying of it. I wasn't happy with my life at all and was deeply disturbed by all the pain and suffering I saw in the world. I started philosophically seeking to understand my existence. Why am I looking out of these two eyes? Why do I have this perspective? I was so depressed that I started a whimsical google search wondering if there was any scientific validity to the December 2012 phenomenon. I thought to myself "maybe there will be a solar flare that will wipe us all out, then at least I won't have to die alone".
It was at this point I stumbled on the Law of One books (the Ra Material). I wasn't searching for more than a few minutes. I thought to myself, "what the hell is the crazy nonsense? Who actually believes they could telepathically talk to aliens?" I noticed it was an actual transcript of the dialog between a questioner and the supposed extra-dimensional being. I decided to read a bit of it so I could literally laugh at it and all the idiots who read it.
Once I started reading, it wasn't at all what I had expected. I was expecting gobbledygook but found it surprisingly logically coherent. My whole life, I had always tried to see the extremely large patterns of how society, civilization, the world, and the universe works. I would study one system (such as religion) and find glaring logical holes in it. I mostly believed the current atheist-scientific outlook but always found the scope to be a little too small. It just didn't account for everything. As I read the Law of One books, I pieced together a humongous gestalt puzzle that was larger than any viewpoint held by science or religion. Once most of the logical puzzle was put together in my mind, it explained much more than science or religion ever was able to with virtually no logical inconsistencies.
It took me months of digesting the material and warring with my old beliefs and ideals, but my new belief superseded my old beliefs and doubts. I couldn't ignore what I had learned. The biggest thing I had to get past was my atheism. But the whole thing only made sense if there was an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, infinite consciousness at the core of it all. After about 6 months of contemplation, I just told myself I had to accept it or abandon the whole concept. I couldn't just forget it because there was an unbelievable number of 'ah-ha!' moments throughout reading the material and it just explained too much of how life works.
I still don't necessarily believe that at the core of this Creation there is some anthropomorphous God with a white beard in white robes sitting on a cloud somewhere that judges anyone. In fact, what I believe that the Infinite Creator / Source has no experience of Itself without us. I believe there is a whole host of different entities / people at extremely different levels existence. What we experience here on Earth is just one specific type of experience, which includes a forgetting of Who and What we are.
The comedian Bill Hicks summed it up in a nutshell quite adeptly: "Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves".
So to say these books were life-altering would be an understatement. I cannot recommend them enough.
That's helped me get thru it. This is only the first book of several. There is also a Law of One website. Although the info
is pertinent, I'd suggest you checkout a Law of One overview video on YouTube before you buy it. It was channeled 30 years ago. If you do feel lead to buy it, definitely meditate and read when you are centered-open yourself up to information.
