Atheists Can Get To Heaven
W. Michael King, Ph.D.
Presenting the seamless continuum between the "physical" and the "metaphysical" (spiritual) that does not depend on "belief systems" for an individual to thrive
Imagine that at the moment of your birth, when your body first experienced the sensations of being out of your mother’s womb and feeling air for the very first time, you were an open canvas, a fabric of being ready for imprinting with the colors and the human concepts of life. At that instant, were you actually a “blank canvas?” Were you open in spirit, pure in being, and free of any influences or proclivities? What are your natural tendencies?
In the wondrous assemblage of your being, your fabric already carried the indelible imprints of the heritage from your ancestral bloodlines. Your genetic construction imbued you with natural talents, abilities, and tendencies that in combination cause you to be a unique individual. When you were born, you were the most recent extension of your familial path that had preceded you through hundreds of generations.
Then what happened?
You developed and evolved through a progression of experiences, information, and teachings that when superimposed onto the fabric of your natural self, shaped you. Some of these influences and experiences wholly complemented the inherent nature of who and what you are. Other influences could have failed to complement your nature, setting up conflicts that might have impeded the efficiency of your path toward optimal self-advancement. In some individuals, the influences applied could have dramatically conflicted with their nature, possibly resulting in many diverse consequences to their personalities such as through turmoil, anger, withdrawal, or confusion.
When you were young, influences occurred and experiences gathered that might have been easy, or difficult, for you to cope with. Collectively, all of your influences and emotions embedded within you to form a “belief system” – which is your mental acceptance, your personal conviction, of values and truths that constitute a foundation upon which you reference your life.
It can be an amazing and formidable challenge to probe into your reference foundation, see the vistas beyond its boundaries, discover your true nature, and develop a new reality that you can use to evolve yourself.
Memories of events may fade over time, but the inadvertently implanted emotional reflexes within you can remain influential to your personality and behaviour. Implanted effects can have many consequences for you. These may span the whole range of positive to negative, from intended and volitional reactions to circumstances and people, to emotionally reflexive where you act without the use of deliberate thought.
When you ask yourself the question, “Who am I?” first listen with your mind then open your emotional heart. You may experience deep and unexplained emotions, reminding you of some forgotten memory of long ago, or dreams of something that you cannot recall nor define.
Observations of individuals tend to indicate that it is not precisely what occurred to you that remains with you as your reference system in life: it is how you reacted and “believe” what happened that matters as you define yourself.
Rationally gaze inside yourself and deliberately examine your processes. You may learn more about the mysteries of your mind by examining your responses to the descriptions presented to you during this Journey! Take advantage of this invitation to make an assessment through your own exploration into what might be a vast unknown: your inner self.
This extraordinary journey reveals revolutionary discoveries that transcend across the physical into the metaphysical. By replacing mythology and faith with reason, the meaning and vision of enlightened spirituality for humanity is opened.
As a compelling story, it connects you to a timeless philosophy, revealing a thought-provoking and perhaps controversial new version of humanity’s evolving future. The author transports you beyond “the tunnel of light” to explore the vastness of our evolutionary future!
