WISHES

THREE WISHES

wish is a hope or desire for a thing or person to appear, for an immaterial thing to become real, for a condition to change, or any of an unlimited number of desires for change.  Traditionally, a wish is request from a supernatural being to cause something to be changed or created.  A template for fictional wishes could be The Book of One Thousand and One Nights, specifically the tale of Aladdin, although in the tale of Aladdin the actual wishes were only part of the tale.  Classically the wish provider is often a spirit, Genie or similar entity, bound or constrained within an object, like Aladdin’s oil lamp for example.

In the case of the Magic Lamp, there are several steps to getting your wish fulfilled:

  1. The first step in wishing is to assume or discover that a “supernatural being” exists!
  2. The next step is to assume that the alleged Supernatural Being is LISTENING to your request.
  3. Then, the magical Supernatural Being must have the ABILITY to make the wish become reality.
  4. Finally, the Supernatural Being must actually WANT to make your wish happen for you.

What are the odds that all of these circumstances will ever exist?  You do the math….

However, there are other forms of “wishing” or asking for something from a supernatural being.  The most common kind of “wishing” is prayer.  Another kind of wishing is daydreaming, or imagination or meditation.  Another kind of wishing is figuring out how to make something happen and working hard, and persisting long enough to MAKE it happen!  

This is almost always the most reliable way of making a wish come true.  And, YOU are a Supernatural Being that can make YOUR wishes come true.

UFO MYTH AND IMAGINATION

Flying Saucers may be a psychic or mythical phenomenondomonkos-1

Dr. Jacques Vallee, a French-American computer specialist with a background in astrophysics, once served as consultant to NASA’s Mars Map project.  Jacques Vallee is one of ufology’s major figures – and also its most original thinker. Vallee, who holds a master’s degree in astrophysics and a Ph.D. in computer science from Northwestern University.

But by 1969, when he published Passport to Magonia (Regnery), Vallee’s assessment of the UFO phenomenon had undergone a significant shift. Much to the consternation of the “scientific ufologists” who had seen him as one of their champions, Vallee now sJacques Valleeemed to be backing away from the extraterrestrial hypotheses and advancing the radical view that UFOs are paranormal in nature and a modern space age manifestation of a phenomenon which assumes different guises in different historical contexts.

” When the underlying archetypes are extracted,” he wrote, “the saucer myth is seen to coincide to a remarkable degree with the fairy-faith of Celtic countries … religious miracles… and the widespread belief among all peoples concerning entities whose physical and psychological descriptions place them in the same category as the present-day ufonauts.”

In The Invisible College (E.P. Dutton, 1975) Vallee posits the idea of a “control system.” UFOs and related phenomena are “the means through which man’s Invisble Collegeconcepts are being rearranged.” Their ultimate source may be unknowable, at least at this stage of human development; what we do know, according to Vallee, is that they are presenting us with continually recurring “absurd” messages and appearances which defy rational analysis but which nonetheless address human beings on the level of myth and imagination.

When I speak of a control system for planet earth,” he says, ” I do not want my words to be misunderstood: I do not mean that some higher order of beings has locked us inside the constraints of a space-bound jail, closely monitored by psychic entities we might call angels or demons. I do not propose to redefine God. What I do mean is that mythology rules at a level of our social reality over which normal political and intellectual action has no power….”

UNIVERSAL ENERGY

This universe is bound together by energy, created and sustained by each and all spiritual beings.  The energy we create and emanate, individually, and collectively is the substance of every universe.  The variety of this energy is as diverse as the illimitable thoughts and imagination of Immortal Spiritual Beings.
Thus, there are as many universes as there are Immortal Spiritual Beings, as each Being is a Universe unto themselves.
