Do you sometimes get an amazing idea 'out of the blue'? Do you feel like all beings are inter-connected with an invisible force? Have you been wondering where inspiration and intuition come from?
If yes, sit back and enjoy reading!
IMPORTANT: The following are excerpts from "The Present", a text that explains life in 4 pages. Please read that text first in order to fully understand this article.
The collective unconscious: In the last few generations, we discovered two invisible forces: electricity and electromagnetic (radio) waves. No one believed they existed a few hundred years ago. In this generation, we are going to discover a new invisible force I call the collective unconscious mind. It is the force, or part of the force, that gives us continuity from one life to another. Without it, there could be no evolution.
Emergence: A guiding force keeps us on track. It is the only part of our mind that is not destroyed when our bodies die, and it can pass through physical death with us. It is outside of our bodies and independent of our bodies.
X factor: It is why ants, bees, a school of fish or a flock of birds move like one big organism. It is why in the right environment, DNA and life will form from the random movement of inorganic molecules. There is a subtle intelligence. Why is it that everything seems to be guided by a God or some kind of universal, omnipresent intelligence?
“Emergence” science is studying the phenomena. Most things can be explained by known forces, not everything. The reason we have not discovered this force yet is because it is very subtle, even though it gives order to literally everything. It will be impossible to detect or measure on any instruments we have now. We cannot see it, but we can see what it does. We know it exists because we can see its effects.
This X factor, along with random chance and the survival of the fittest, has resulted in the evolution of life. The collective unconscious is this X factor, or is at the very least interacting with it. It connects us on a subconscious level with the minds of all other life.
Dark energy: Scientists say that more than ninety percent of the known universe is made up of something they call dark matter and dark energy. They know it is there because of its gravitational effects on things they can see, but that is all they know about it. They are saying they do not know what ninety-percent of the universe is. This dark energy could be where we find the collective unconscious.
We know the collective unconscious exists for the same reasons; we can see its effects on life. At this time, the only way we can know the collective unconscious mind exists is that it has to. We needed help to get to where we are now.
Old man in the sky: It would be easy to imagine that the helper is a God that looks like us (our image), but there is no evidence of that. It has to be more like a very subtle, invisible form of energy, like gravity and/or electromagnetic waves, or something we have not discovered yet that is like them, in that it affects life.
Putting the force that controls life in a human body worked in the ancient past, because primitive people did not know about invisible forms of energy. Unknown forces of nature were explained by saying a God did it. Since then, our knowledge has evolved and progressed. Now we know about unseen forces. We know that they are just a form of energy.
Intelligent design exists; religions just do not know what it is yet.
The collective unconscious is not alive. It is just a part of our minds, an extension of our minds, not a separate life form. The collective unconscious is something like gravity that connects all of us. Jesus calls it the Holy Spirit.
Carl Jung also used the term “collective unconscious.” I use it to describe something much more powerful than he does. I use the same term because it best describes the phenomenon I am attempting to explain. We do not know much about it yet. That will change in this generation. I have a theory:
Universal mind: Just as magnetic tape and disks store information on computers, gravity and/or a similar form of all pervasive energy could collect and store all of our minds’ information. It also could process the information by mixing with the collective unconscious of all other life on Earth and even with life in other worlds.
Like a computer, it can be accessed and used to translate information back to people as inspiration, etc. Some people can tune in and download a revelation or a song, a work of art, or a book like this one. All we can be sure of is it is possible to communicate with some kind of universal mind.
Every extension of knowledge arises from making conscious the unconscious.
In other words, when you get your mind out of the way, you become conscious of what you were not conscious of before. You become conscious of something beyond the mind. You can make contact with the universal mind of life.
The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will; the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why. The truly valuable thing is the intuition. Albert Einstein
Inspiration: The word means “breath of God.” It is where ideas, art, poetry, movies, philosophy, music, inventions, revelations and all new creative things come from. It manifests in many ways, such as talent, intuition and insight.
Intuition: Intuition and inspiration come from the same place. They are both manifestations of the collective unconscious. When asked where they got the idea for something, creative people will say they were inspired, they dreamed it, it just came to them in a flash, etc. All new, creative things come from outside our own minds. By definition, they have to come from outside your mind to be truly new.
Once Paul McCartney was asked where his songs come from. He answered, “I don't know, they seem to come out of the air.”
When real music comes to me, the music of the spheres, the music that surpasses understanding - that has nothing to do with me, because I'm just the channel. The only joy for me is for it to be given to me, and to transcribe it like a medium... those moments are what I live for. John Lennon
The evidence: There has to be an outside influence, because ideas can come to many people at about the same time. For example, language developed at about the same time everywhere on the planet. Religions from different times and places have many things in common. Inventions and styles of music and art come to people at about the same time. It is not just a coincidence.
You can know that all great or inspired music comes from the collective unconscious, because if it did not, the musicians who wrote the classic songs in the past would still be writing classic songs now. A few are, but most are not.
Great inspirations come when they come, and when they quit coming, there is no way for the musicians to do it on their own. How well you play has nothing to do with it. The older musicians get, the better they get on their instruments, but they often have their great songs when they were young and could not play as well.
It is the same with books, art and inventions. Every once in a great while, you get a Mozart, Beethoven, a Tesla or an Einstein. These people were just more connected to the collective unconscious; thus, they received more inspirations.
My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists. Nikola Tesla
Mozart, Tesla, and Einstein were just more inspired than most people.
Einstein had all his great ideas in one year (1905) when he was a patent clerk in his twenties. He called it his miracle year; it was a year of great inspirations. He spent the rest of his life working on those ideas, and he did not have any more great inspirations. His life makes it clear that great ideas come in inspirations.
It took over three years for people to see what he was talking about and accept his ideas. Almost all great inspirations are ahead of their time, and it takes the rest of the world a long time to accept them. It is the same with the things said in this book. It will take time for most people to accept what is said as the truth.
Inspiration has traveled around to different places and people at different times in history. It is currently in America, because we are creating all the great new inventions, but it was in China at the time they created gunpowder, the compass, etc.
It was in Egypt when they built the pyramids, Greece in the form of Aristotle and Socrates. It was in Spain during the time of the conquistadors, Rome when it created the best civil engineering. It was in the Middle East at the time of Al-Jazari. It was in Florence during the renaissance, Vienna during the golden age of classical music. It was in Germany, when it invented jet engines and rockets. It was in England when the steam engine was invented and when the industrial age started.
In the past, these times of great inspiration in a group of people often also manifested in military power and war, making that place or country it happened in the most powerful country in the world. This power of inspiration comes and goes. Italians are not Romans, and none of the other places and people I mentioned are what they were. The only difference is the people that live there are no longer inspired more than other people.
If you study history, you can literally see the inspiration moving around through different people at different times and places. It comes and goes, and a person’s or nation's power and greatness comes and goes with it. America will be the place inspiration stays the longest, because it is made up of people from everywhere.
Inspiration can come and stay if you learn the truth and the life.

This does not mean you will always be creating great inventions or music, because when you realize the ultimate truth, you realize those things are not that important. You realize that the only thing that is important is living and spreading the truth and the life.
Many artists believe you need to suffer to be inspired to greatness, but it is not necessary, and a waste of life. You just need to know the truth and the life. Suffering can destabilize the mind and let a little inspiration pass through, so it does work, but why do it the hard way when there is now a more pleasant way?
Almost everything you are reading now came out of the air as inspiration. My inspirations come as revelations of the truth. The things I got from other people are just to support the new revelations in this book. By definition, any truly new truth has to come from outside yourself and the rest of the world to really be new. If something is known or exists, it is not new.
