“Jesus said, ‘Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.’” This spoken by the Master was banned by the budding Christian Church two-thousand years ago, still deemed a heretical teaching to this day.

The Verbal Truth of Christianity effects to bring you to the crux of the central message of the Jesus mission, a universal one of reality’s truer nature, the defining of God and cosmos in believable and constructive terms; an understanding of the eternal realm and our relation to it.

A simple message overlooked by scholars, yet of such complexity it takes lifetimes to realize; to see and understand how by ignorance and fear we frame our living narratives in birth and death — necessitating a false mortality.

In Chapter 1 this book offers a greater explanation of what “life” is and sets a foundation for a more developed, elevated, meaningful, concept of “God”.

Chapter 2 opens with a short exploration of the time and place setting of the story of Jesus, making effort for determining who he was, what he said, why he said it, and further to sift out what he said that the Christian Church embraced, and what he said that the Church rejected. And more importantly, we will begin to see what the Church teaches that Jesus never said or taught.

In Chapter 3 we will briefly look at credible gospels of Jesus that the Church rejected then and still rejects now, primarily the “Gnostic” Gospel of Thomas lost to the ages until uncovered by chance in 1945.

Chapter 4 reconciles the canonical (New Testament) gospels of the Christian Church with legitimate rejected gospels that the Church deemed heretical (wrong teachings). From this, and with our more elevated understanding of life and who God is, a clear Jesus message emerges of which logic and understanding replaces the childlike message of “faith”.

In Chapter 5 we look at the sameness between the true Jesus message and other religions, philosophies and sciences.

Chapter 6 puts it all together into a single unified message answering our purpose for being here in this world now and ahead.

Storms, hurricanes, earthquakes everywhere, a Savior appears, preaching of end times: rapture, damnation, Earth entering some supposed invisible force field he calls the “Photon Belt”. Some say he’s Jesus or Buddha, or some new Master of light. Palo Alto software technician Egbert Benson sees he’s a fake, cashing on those weird calamities. Yet he has some mysterious power over dreams, and every day the world falls more into chaos.

Egbert’s coworker Jody is condemned by this new “Master”, conveyed personally through dreams. Egbert hadn’t much liked her, but with end of times at their door, he feels love awakening.

At the steps to the door of his technical firm in Palo Alto, California, Egbert finds a voice and a way for battling this dark Master through the unlikely source of a web based social networking game and the soft gentle voice of a mysterious stranger. But the clock is ticking, the Photon Belt fast approaching, Jody’s days numbered, Egbert has just one focus: End this false Master’s stranglehold.

“The Steps”, a novel by Arthur Telling, putting a blur and a spin to the cherished notions of hero and villain, good and evil, right and wrong, brings Egbert and cohorts, even the Savior himself, into a surprising and unexpected new dimension.

Looking for snippets of fresh perspectives, humor in mundane things, wisdom insights, check out these short mystical stories:

Our first story “ISON the Icy Wanderer” gives glimmers on a commonality of celestial and worldly insights. Americans were celebrating Thanksgiving in Fall of 2013 when Comet ISON, arriving from the distant Oort Cloud, reached “perihelion”, the critical moment of his long journey whereupon rounding the Sun he would either successfully flare up and become a December Christmas comet of the century or break up from the Sun’s intense heat and disintegrate. ISON, an animated consciousness in our story, finds both comfort and scorn from the planets and asteroids, and NASA’s careful watch as he traverses the Solar System on his fateful journey. Our story confronts the big questions of purpose and of life, death and beyond, for all consciousness, be they human, animal, or comets made from ice and dirt.

“Light A Particle or Wave?” examines the metaphysical foundation of all cells having consciousness with science’s unsolved mystery as to why light elements act as both particle and wave, inexplicably changing their natures upon being observed. Through humor and physical science, a light element, narrating the story, answers the formerly unanswerable question.

“Unforeseen Voyage”, an insightful mystical tale, launches from an ordinary lunch at a water front restaurant, where the diner enters another dimension, like a popular TV Twilight Zone mystery, where a profound moment unravels before him. Seeing the futility of engaging in life’s ordinary pursuits when the end point is death, he forms a critical view of other diners’ engrossment in eating, drinking and merry making. A moment later, the tables turn, and he is on the receiving end. The story is of the human dilemma that we face as we live and contemplate our temporal natures.

From time immemorial, there is the perennial quest for a Spiritual Master who can lead man to enlightenment, truth or salvation. “The Long and Winding Road” a wisdom mystical tale, addresses this head-on. In our story, a seeker goes on a journey to find the Master and learns that the Master is at top of a mountain in the high hills of Northern California. But this Master is elusive, and our seeker fails to locate him. But the Master shows up in a surprising way and gives him a lesson while doing ordinary things. The seeker, thinking he’s learned little, finds out differently that evening when he goes into slumber at nighttime. The previous day’s events link together in his dream, and in an interplay of real events and dreams, our seeker finds his pathway.

“Are you Christian” brings fresh insight to the table with advent of science, where faith and Christianity have received many scientific blows from evolution. Does Jesus or Darwin offer correct belief? Ryan, the mystic, demonstrates how evolution ultimately has no value in a continuing future, whereas Jesus offers a stopgap into the abyss yet ultimately can do no better than provide a temporary relief. The story’s dialogue between the mystic and atheist, reveals a higher more correct understanding that will secure the promises of prosperity in this world and everlasting life beyond.

“On Order from The Divine” uses humor in a story of a self-important heavenly being who is critiquing the failings of humanity from his lofty perch above. The Divine overhears and orders him to take birth in the human world, so that he will come to understand human challenges. Encountering first the obstacle of erotic lust, then a more daunting one of receptivity, a wise monastic delivers a specially tailored message on the pitfalls of self-importance, and his new life on earth begins.

Enjoy!

At the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, young Jonathan Livingston Seagull caught the world’s notice as he sought to break beyond the pitiful life of those average mortals populating the earth. Conquering all, entering into the eternal bliss, Jonathan left us, as did this magical spiritual age of enlightenment. What happened?

In that era many seagulls emulated Jonathan; their stories never told. But one mighty bird, Johann Earlington, a contemporary of Jonathan, too looked to greater heights, too wanted answers, and too found the ultimate abode; but today, forty years after, his efforts lie in ruins. The world, his magnificent new world, has come full circle back to the pain of boredom and hopelessness of repetition.

As our story begins, Johann is doubting his own accomplishments; rising to great heights, finding the most glorious of all heavens, lovingly showing this new way to any gull who would listen. But the new age is dead, and there seems no resolution. The end of the old brings the beginning of the new when there emerges a teacher, the Lord himself, in all majesty of Jesus, Buddha, and the still small voice. He shows Johann his errors and gives him new direction. Join Johann as he once and for all learns the true way to enlightenment. The simplicity of it may surprise you.

Wei Liu captures the incredible story of Johann’s awakening in his wonderful photography, twenty-five photos in full color. This author gives honor to Jonathan Livingston Seagull author Richard Bach who first aroused an impatient age, upon which this book is born.
