Recently, huge structures and remnants of cities have been found that indicates that in the very far distant past (this has pushed our idea of history even further back in time) extremely advanced civilizations were spread all over the Earth. There are even indications of nuclear explosions. What would wipe out such advanced civilizations, but leave their structures intact for us to find? I also wonder what the significance is of finding them now?
There have been two main reasons why thriving civilizations, such as the Aztecs or Mayans or Inca — to name a few comparatively recent ones — have been wiped out. Firstly, drought or contamination of water sources. Secondly, rampant viruses against which there was no immunity. The more advanced a civilization was, the more interaction through travel or trade of goods was possible, spreading a virus from place to place. Every hundred year period, sees at least two global viral outbreaks.
The Spanish Flu in the early 1900s (1918-1920) is a pandemic that claimed at least 50 million lives — my grandmother being one of them. The current virus is the second viral pandemic within the last hundred years. One significant message of these archeological findings, is that imbalanced lives disrupt weather patterns, and consequently water and food supplies. Another message is that succumbing to the gross materialism of a prosperous society, separates the soul from the body and leaves people vulnerable to viral invasion.
Is that the reason why your latest book, Coming Home to Yourself, stresses infusing soul into everyday life? It’s the most lyrical work that you’ve produced yet. Does living the principles in this book increase our imperviousness to disease?
That’s the reason why the book was written, but also to restore wholesomeness as a way of life for the gods. Its further aim was to encourage self-reliance, rather than dependency on the systems of man.
