About the author, Paul Levy:
In 1981 Paul Levy had a life-changing spiritual awakening, in which he began to
wake up to the dream-like nature of reality. During the first year of his
spiritual emergence, Paul was hospitalized a number of times, and was diagnosed
with having had a severe psychotic break. Much to his surprise, he was told that
he had a chemical imbalance and had manic-depressive (bi-polar) illness, and
would have to live with his illness for the rest of his life. Fortunately, he
was able to quickly extricate himself from the medical and psychiatric
establishment. Little did the doctors realize that he was taking part in some
sort of spiritual awakening/shamanic initiation process, which at times mimicked
psychosis but in actuality was an experience of a far different order. In 1993,
after many years of struggling to contain and integrate his experiences, he
started to teach about what he was realizing. He has been in private practice for over ten years, assisting
others who are spiritually emerging and beginning to wake up to the dreamlike nature of reality. In a dream come true, psychiatrists now consult with him and send him patients. A pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence, Paul is in the new book Saints and Madmen: Psychiatry Opens its Doors to Religion.
Paul has developed a unique and creative vehicle to introduce people to the
dream-like nature of reality that he calls “The Dreaming Up Process,” which is
based on the realization that the same dreaming mind that dreams our dreams at
night is dreaming our life. He teaches this dreaming up process in "Awakening in
the Dream Groups" where people who are awakening to the dream-like nature of
reality come together and collaboratively help each other to wake up in the
Deeply steeped in and inspired by the work of C. G. Jung, Paul is an innovator
in the field of dreaming (both night dreams as well as waking dreams). He has had close to forty articles published on consciousness, dreaming and
spirituality, and has lectured about his work at various universities.
A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner for over twenty years, he has intimately studied
with some of the greatest masters of Tibet and Burma. A visionary artist, he is
creating an art happening called ?global awakening.? He is currently writing a
book about his work in dreaming.
THE WAR ON CONSCIOUSNESS
We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds. The global war on terror that is being fought around the world is an embodied reflection in the material world of a deeper, more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of consciousness itself.
We have the most criminal regime in all of our history wreaking unspeakable horror on the entire planet, while simultaneously waging war on the consciousness of its own citizens - Us. If we aren’t aware of this, we are unwittingly playing into, supporting and complicit in the evil that is being perpetrated in our name.
Whether we call it the illuminati, the global elite, a shadow government, or a secret cabal, there is no doubt that there are darker, self-serving forces that have insinuated themselves into and taken over our government. The terrorists that we should be worried about are domestic terrorists who are actually implementing their agendas from deep within our very system of government itself.
The United States Government itself has become a “front” for the underlying military-industrial-financial crime syndicate that animates it. This is not to say that there aren’t many good, well-meaning people in our government – they are simply prohibited by the very nature of the corrupt system they are in from reforming it. Our system of government is rigged in such a way so that there is no way to transform the system within the system itself...............
