ORIGIN of MY BIRTHPLACE

Knowing God and Connecting to the Source of Life

In his latest book, John brings us fact to face with the stories of Abraham as he learned to recognize the mysteries that were unfolding before his eyes. Over time, Abraham developed his capacity for knowing God directly. This led Abraham into a communion with God that was so deep that the future lives of his descendants became fully present in Abraham’s own consciousness. Both the past and the future became present in the imagination of Abraham. He knew the presence of great mystery, and the presence of mystery transformed everything about him.

Not only does your birthplace have an origin, but you can recognize it, see it, and return Imagine you had greater self-control. Imagine you enjoyed a greater capacity for being your best self, seeing others at their best, and building strong relationships. Imagine that you were even to develop a capacity for direct communion with God and the source of life.
