Hi Everyone, I was born in 1950 to a catholic father and Anglican mother. in 1955, I realized that my mother was from south India and my father was from the South of Sri Lanka. Then I found that my father's relations were mostly Buddhist but he was catholic as his great - great - great grandfather was of Portuguese origin and were traders. On my mother's side I found that some of her relations were Hindus. This was my first enlightenment.
When I was eight, I found that the common language spoken at home was English, though my father's mother tongue was Sinhalese and my mother's mother tongue Tamil. This was my second enlightenment.
However, it did not concern me or change anything in my life, until I started seeing the manner in which people of different ethnic groups and religions started focusing on "Past Hurts" and differences and seeking ways in which they could intimidate others. I wondered why they could not seek commonalities and live a rich and harmonious life.
I started questioning why were there many religions and why people of these religions were in conflict. As I felt uneasy living among people in conflict, I decided to study the different religions and doctrines and even the Atheists. I found that the Atheists were the most human but opted to be a Theosophist as I could not condemn any religion, and also because I have messages coming to me from everywhere. At first, I thought that the the messages were my conscience speaking to me, but later when people and events in my presence were providing answers to my questions, and I was protected many times, I had to believe that there was also external spirituality around. A good example is when I was once shot at point blank range but the bullet missed my ear by one inch, as I dived forward and sideways!. Everyone said that it was an Angel that pushed me as I was too fat to have been able to dive at that speed. I believe that it could have been so, as there were no humans behind me.
I also remembered that when I was 11 years old, I used to leave my body and roam around. I was scared to mention to anyone at that time, but when I had access to internet in 2002, I verified it and found that it was OBE (Out of Body Experience) and there were many others who have had OBEs. In 2007, I had many questions about life, and after life. I had a vision about the upward and downward spirals of life and the manner each and everyone of us are placed in it, according to our enlightenment and also tasks assigned by the Spirit of Truth and Justice (STJ) I am in the process of compiling a book of my visions, to be able to present it to the public. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abW5Gr7Ry7A
I believe that we are all Spiritual beings living a part of our lives in human form. We have to think spiritually if we wish to live our lives in Joy. However, the contamination of the Spirit is enormous. and most of us think in the human form.
I believe our inner self is our nature. Our nature is our purpose and manifests it in our Natural Talents/strenghts (Thoughts, Drive/Will and Skills) we inherited at birth. If we are able to correctly identify and polish our natural talents/strengths and make them marketable to the world, we can make ourselves joyful and the world will become a better place rapidly.
The best to everyone,
