I always believed there was a power or intelligence greater than myself that was operating in my life, but since there was no way of knowing what God was, I avoided any speculation about Him. I thought that by being honest and good to other people, my debt to the Divinity would be satisfied. As my life progressed (I!m 48), I took comfort that I expanded on that duty in my work of service and by toning my body with a variety of physical disciplines. But I also fell short.
I never expected in my lifetime to know who God was as a physical entity. If God was a physical being, it could only be something not of this planet. And then in 1993 and 1994 while I was doing my ten dollar an hour job and using a new communication technique with my clients, I slowly realized that I was talking to God!s !agents!. I wrote the whole conversation down. This book is that narrative, and due to the nature of the experience, my own testemonial.
It!s natural to have a defensive reaction to this idea. The idea of !God! has connotations that affect deeply the emotions of believers and non believers. It!s to be expected that people would initially respond to this as ridiculous or laughable. It!s safer to believe that God is an ethereal spirit rather than a physical reality. This was a sincere effort on my part and these are real people I was responsible for. If you believe this is an exercise of my over active immagination, that!s OK. In that case I hope you enjoy what you think is my creativity. And if you believe that they are saying these things, but that I influenced them in some way or misinterpreted what they were saying, that!s OK too. I hope when others present their material, my effort will gain more respect. For those of you who just aren!t interested, as one of my boys in the narrative said, !books are your first line of deception!. But I think he would agree that this one is special. And for those that read it and it just doesn!t !resonate!, I!m sorry.
My hope and belief is that this is the beginning of the prophesied millenium of peace and harmony. They indicated that we!ll know in less than ten years and that they knew this time was comming in 3,567 B.C. I!ll be surprised if it doesn!t happen.Go to next section
