In this book, Andreas Moritz brings to light our deep inner need for abundance, love and spiritual wisdom. In addition, he assists the reader in developing a new sense of reality that is based on trust, power and happiness. He describes in detail our relationship with the natural world and how we can harness its tremendous powers for our personal benefit, as well as that of humanity as a whole. It's Time to Come Alive challenges some of our most ardently held beliefs and offers a way out of the restrictions and limitations we have created in our lives.
(From the Introduction)
The book reveals the basic mechanisms responsible for causing disease and problems and provides the insights and tools for creating ideal health, material and spiritual success. The reader of this book is taken through a process of awakening that can restructure his entire life and transform any existing weakness into strength and responsibility, doubt into conviction and hope, judgment into forgiveness, and fear into love. As he becomes increasingly familiar with the profound insights and methods of awakening, his vast inner potential, his power of intuition or natural inner guidance will become so developed that he is able to free himself from inner and outer conflicts.
It is most important to develop this ability at this time when the fast pace of global transformation renders the conventional ways of thinking and decision making far too inefficient to successfully deal with the pressures and complexities of modern life. When it comes to getting the best out of life, intuition-based intent will be the most powerful and efficient way of fulfilling our personal and collective purpose here on Earth. Being at the crossroads of human development, the time for changing ourselves is now. It's Time to Come Alive helps us to take this most important step towards fulfilling our personal and global destiny.
Maya - The World of Illusion
We generally see our body as being distinctly different than anything else that exists around us. Our planet and the billions of galaxies and stars that are floating about within the ever-expanding universe seem to be unrelated to our body, and most of us consider them to be just lifeless matter with hardly any or no relevance to our personal lives. But is that really true? Could it be possible instead that our eyes and other senses of perception project a picture of reality that overshadows our deeper connection with the universe?
Einstein, who was the pioneer of quantum physics, considered this idea to be the ultimate truth. He knew that all matter and energy are dual expressions of the same universal substrate that makes up all things, including us. Today's quantum physicists confirm what Einstein knew all along - the concrete world appears to be real but it is not. The Maya of illusion hides from us what is real by engaging our senses in a magic spell. The clouds in the sky only seem to make the Sun 'disappear.' Even though the Sun does not move away, we still use expressions such as 'the Sun is gone away,' or 'the Sun hasn't been out today.'
For practical purposes, such statements may be correct, but in reality they conceal an even more significant aspect of the truth, which is our flawless connection to every part of creation. To rely only on our five senses to know the world and to act on that knowledge is comparable to building a house on sand; it is destined to collapse. A child watches the sunrise in the East and sees it disappear in the West. As it grows up and learns the basic lessons about our planetary system, the child may feel confused and bewildered with this information, or else it can not grasp its logic at all. It has to accept that things are not always the way they seem. Only a clear intellectual understanding of the situation and a certain amount of distrust in his sense of sight can reconcile the two contradictory realities of the one event that is taking place right in front of the child's eyes. Only after it has accepted and understood that the Sun never rises or sets and that the earth rotates around the Sun and not the other way round, the child's confusion will subside.
A further challenge may arise when the child learns that the earth is not as flat as it looks, but round, and that you may never reach the end of the world however far and long you travel. Only a few centuries back, humankind still believed that if you walked to the end of the horizon you would fall off the earth like from the edge of a cliff. Today we can only smile at such a notion of reality. Yet a person who will live even 30 or 50 years from now will smile at our perception of reality for it will no longer be relevant either.
Almost all conflicts and struggles in man's historical past were based on beliefs that arose from misleading sensory perception. Even today wars are being fought over 'territorial rights' and 'national boundaries' that only exist in the minds of the people. These rights and boundaries are mere artifacts of illusion. The earth is whole and it is not possible to divide her into segments. To most people, the right of owning a piece of land and cultivating it to make a living seems natural. By building a house on this land for shelter and protection they may feel that ownership of this property is their personal birthright. In reality, however, they have only 'leased' it from nature for the relatively short time of being here on Earth. The land has belonged to Earth for millions of years and a legal document will not be able to take it away from her. The conflicts arise not from using the land but from the false interpretation that we own it.
We furthermore believe that we are able to grow and provide our own foods but we forget that we could not even grow a blade of grass without the Sun's and Earth's natural supplies of warmth, energy, air, water and nutrients. No life form can exist in isolation because everything, including human life, is intimately interwoven with every part of the Earth and the surrounding universe.
The sensory illusion that the Earth and we are separate entities leads us to acquire more material things such as money and property than we do actually need. The amassment of wealth creates the illusion of safety. Yet, the sense of safety that is based on material wealth is a shaky one. It creates constant fear of losing one's possessions, which could happen at any time. We may even be willing to risk our lives to obtain or defend our possessions. Only when fire, tidal waves or a devastating earthquake destroys what we thought was ours, does the rare person begin to understand that we can never really own anything. True and lasting ownership of anything exists only in the conscious state of 'oneness' with the living Earth, which is also the state of continual abundance and freedom from fear. In the past, certain civilisations as a whole have displayed such unity awareness. Their most precious secret was 'the art of being in tune with nature' versus being against it. The wise men and women from our past have left behind traces of their greatness that can help us rediscover the essence of our being.
Lessons from the Past
For many years the white human races have treated the Red Indians of North America, the Aborigines of Australia, and other tribal people around the world, as inferior races with 'uncultured' beliefs or 'uncivilised' ways of living. Several descriptive texts even refer to them as being 'savages' or 'barbarians.' Nevertheless, more and more spiritually inclined people as well as scientists, are now beginning to realise that there is a lot we can learn from their natural ways of living. The ancient cultures of the Incas, Mayas or the Vedic civilisation had a far superior understanding of nature and creation than has been written in all the volumes of science and advanced technology.
Our understanding of Quantum Physics seems to have evolved enough to give reasonable explanations about how matter and energy share a common ground and source in a 'unified field' of natural law as it has initially been conceived by Albert Einstein. Today's foremost scientists have developed the extremely complex mathematical formulas that attempt to prove these theories and they certainly deserve applause for their extraordinary contributions. They have led to the groundbreaking discovery that we and the rest of the universe are made of the same 'stuff' and are fundamentally one giant living organism with different individual expressions or aspects. Yet these merely theoretical insights into the reality of life and the universe have failed to make such a state of unity and oneness with all of existence a tangible and lasting experience for anyone. For the ordinary person it is irrelevant to know that quantum physics has discovered the common origin of all life. He would be more interested in actually living the wisdom contained in such a statement.
Textbook knowledge leaves wisdom behind. By contrast, the Red Indians spoke of a Great Spirit that guided their actions and helped them understand and see what their eyes and minds could not reveal. They considered the Great Spirit to be the Father of their souls to whom they would return at the time of physical death. For them the Earth was their real Mother since all the nourishment they received came from her. They naturally obeyed the laws of the Father and the laws of the Mother without a need for other man-made laws. They did not require books to teach them about physics, biology, chemistry, or health. These ancient civilizations received their first class education directly from their Father and their Mother.
Perhaps we all have the capability to perform miracles. This book will show us how to “wake up” to this potential.
