Some 5 star reviews:
Review by: Adam on Dec. 04, 2010 :
I’m all for creating my own universe. According to Kapuscinski, we all do it anyway. Unfortunately, he hastens to affirm that, if we do so, we’ll have no one to blame but ourselves for the result! The trick is to do it consciously. Read Visualization, if you dare, but don’t blame anyone if your dreams come true.
If this book doesn’t waken you from your mental abnegation of truth perceived by your mind, (not just your senses), nothing will. Or, perhaps, you already live in a universe of your own making?
Review by: Hanna on Dec. 01, 2010 :
I only read a few chapters, so far. Until I looked as his Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism, I didn't know that Stan Law (aka Stanislaw Kapuscinski) also wrote non-fiction. Now that I have Visualization - Creating Your Own Universe, I begin to realize how all his fiction books happened. The philosophy he developed here, seems to permeate all his novels. And... I am awfully glad it does!
“I have here made only a nosegay of culled flowers, and have brought nothing of my own but the string that ties them.”
As the above words of seigneur de Montaigne imply, there is nothing here that you don’t already know. But if you are anything like I am, indeed—like most of my friends, then you seldom find time, or take the trouble, to reach within deep enough to become aware of your knowledge. I hope this book will help you to know yourself better.
What follows is not intended as a scientific dissertation. Nor is it an attempt to impose my views, nor influence your thinking in any way. What I am offering is a compendium of my observations, which may motivate you to begin observing the world through your own eyes a little more diligently. You might call it my vision of the world I live in. To protect myself from an egocentric viewpoint, I took great pains to share with you also the visions of many men throughout history, many men and women who are making history today, and some lesser visionaries whose views I find particularly attractive. Your vision, the program that controls your views and therefore your life, will forever remain your own. I wish to stress, however, that you must have a vision or else remain no more than an effect of your subconscious.
I am not concerned with the visible universe.
Once the universe becomes detectable to our senses, it is too late to change it. The book will show that we have our being within a continuous process of creating the reality we live in.
I am fascinated by the process itself. There are excellent popular books on the subject of how to procure results. Here, we shall concentrate on the cause. Although we shall not ignore the results, neither physics nor astrophysics need concern us here other than to broaden our perspective. What we shall discus principally is the “Visual Universe”. The universe which we do or can visualize and, in the process of doing so, we shall give it reality. The tangible universe thus becomes the result of our quest, not the quest itself. What we are after is the process. The Creative Process. The methods which empower us to be as gods.
From the hoary days of history in which we, humans, became aware of ourselves, of our distinctiveness, we have been engaged in doing just that. Every single one of us has been creating his or her subjective realities. We made our beds and we must sleep in them. We created our heavens and our hells. We did it all unwittingly. We had no idea that it had been up to us what world we chose to live in. We became adept at blaming the stars, the governments, schools and educational systems, and finally our parents. It may be that all these elements had some peripheral influence on the universes we live in. But the degree to which we permit external conditions, or the environment, to influence us has always been up to us. Up to our free will. Up to our ability to lead a Conscious Life.
It is time to stop being a result. It is time to stop bobbing up and down like a cork cast by some whimsical deity on the vast oceans of life. We are the architects of our destiny. We are gods.
It is time to learn to be the Cause.
In the course of this book, I shall prove that neither you nor I, nor the universe around us really exists. At least, not as we perceive it with our senses. We shall have to learn to probe it with our mind, to visualize it with our inner vision. I shall also show how an individual vision can and did change the course of history.
Perhaps now, it is our turn.
An apology is due to my readers who decide to join me on my meandering through various subjective universes. There will be a lot of repetition when dealing with certain aspects of the creative process. The reason is that for thousands of years we have been conditioned to think in a particular way, which I consider false. I shall show that I am not alone in my opinion. Unfortunately, there are very few who will agree with me. Those who do, however, shall in time become masters of their domain.
To prove my point, I shall draw upon myths, history, politics and science, as well as philosophies and the more esoteric interpretations of some ancient and modern religions. I shall attempt to show that the truth had always been available to us under different guises. I shall also show why it is only now that we are in position to dive headlong into the ocean of infinite possibilities—an ocean, which heretofore has been accessible only to the few.
Finally, I must stress that this is not yet another self-help book to add to the countless others adorning the bookshelves of your local book-merchant. Rather, it is a book that will enable you to write your own set of rules that will, in turn, govern your own personal universe. It is a book that, I hope, will help you to stand on your own feet with such confidence that nothing will ever upset your balance again. And you will do so whatever others may be doing.
