It took me almost twelve years to pull together all the writings in order to publish A New Earth is Second Nature. Suffering from the sudden onset of a chemical poisoning, my years of pain were eased through intense meditation exercises. I drew more and more strength as I fought the illnesses it produced. I believe we all have innate powers to heal and I know while healing I was raising my sense of awareness. I had no idea just how intense my awareness would get nor the road I would be going on to get these years of work into the public. I had unknowingly tapped into energy I'd never encountered before. I found myself writing down specific language that came to me, and it was through these private exercises I began to format teachings about that which I'd never thought of previously. It was clear I was being educated and I needed to become focused on what was before me. As I read my garbled handwriting there was a repetitive theme coming through. I knew the theme was highly controversial. With my written instructions that would render the ego worthless and evil, I felt opening myself onto the publishing world as a new author with perhaps a lighter subject matter would be a good idea.
I wrote The Whittler, a funny, whimsical Fantasy Fiction book of action that utilized many of the concepts, while I continued to write "Second Nature" . I could write of the horrific ego and what it was all about, but write it into characters within the fiction book. I threw my ideas out into the open air as "fodder" instead of a blatant attack on our very own egos. Published in 2001 just prior to 9/11 The Whittler was going to be on its own; a great story that will have to be retold and perhaps re-released, this time with a publisher that will not competitively try and date his female authors.
It would be another almost twenty years for me to work through the maze of collective egos in order to get A New Earth is Second Nature out to the public. With a copyright in 2001, and a contract to publish, which was not honored, I'd wait and go through even more turmoil and personal strife before getting this to you now. That is the way of the world and I am not here to analyze one way or another, just show my way of "being". Without "time" used to preclude great awareness, these teachings are here now, as they should be.
In no way is it my intention to force these teachings onto others, but to simply set out the writings I have come to know and have written. It is only important those that read A New Earth is Second Nature take away a sense of its' encouragement to rid oneself of their ego. Whether you integrate this perspective into your life, is up to each individual. Some may say you are not "awake" unless you take this as gospel. Since I was raised within the church, and organized religion, I instinctively knew there was more for me to figure out, that I wanted to find answers for myself...as would others. With that, I will continue to dig into the new perspectives I am running across, but I will not try and "think" for others, but rather be available to teach what I have stumbled upon as I was somehow picked to write this, and I did just that. It is also my truth to move it out onto the world, even though it may have been compromised years ago. What matters most is that this is from me, my spiritual "self" and that there are no others that can clearly represent what was originally meant to "be". I hope this carries you to the same or similar place of peace it carries me when I read and re-read it.
We all are not just one entity, but two; as we have an ego, that has to go in order to really live a fully free existence. Once we call out the ego, we can then become the beings we have always been meant to “be”. It is here you will examine why governments, schools, churches, the work place, homes and families all have a “collective ego” within their own specific structures. We need to address all the concerns about life and what it could be like without the negativity the ego produces and loves to nurture. And at that end it is my hope one ego at a time will dissipate into the air, to allow truth and dignity to prevail, and The Earth will become Second Nature to us all…supporting a spirit of “Being” and a sense of continuity."
"Women must help each other, and bring out the light, and magnify their brilliance for the good of all beings. It is only these secure women that know how to stand back from a fight, and call it as it is, a battle by an entity that is not secure or knowing of the ways to rid one’s self of their ego. She is attacked for her strength, loved for her strength and hated for her strength. But, she is at peace and wanders through her life knowing that the man that sees light as light, and not a flame to be extinguished, is the man to love with all her heart and soul. She knows he’s a man worth the woman she is, a man that can dance the dance of freedom and pure joy within the universe. This man knows of the atrocities, and chooses to keep the reality close to his heart, always aware that knowing is the ticket to understanding on both fronts."
