Science Vs God – Is There A Life Force That Transcends Matter? | Under The Skin with Russell Brand
Below is a comment on this video. The video is found on youtube.com.
What has been traditionally referred to as the “Holy Spirit” would be said to be present in this dialog? Russell is quite advanced for his age. Dr. Sheldrake in speaking about the secular world said something like – The materialistic worldview where God has been removed leaves people isolated in the privacy of their skulls – and I agree with the statement. In POWER VS FORCE, by David R. Hawkins, where the researcher can find his MAP of CONSCIOUSNESS and reference to Dr. Sheldrake’s Morphic Resonance, the seeker on (93-94) finds the Energy Levels of 700 – 1000 which Hawkins calls Enlightenment explained. This is considered the ongoing state of “divine union” in the study of Mystical Theology. At this level, there is no longer an experience of “an individual personal self separate from others; rather, there is an identification with Self as Consciousness and Divinity.” People are not “isolated in the privacy of their skulls” in the Enlightened state. This description compares to statements by Ramakrishna and others who “see and know” degrees of consciousness in others. Veils to awareness have been removed. At 700 – 1000, a state of clarity is found where one “sees and knows” the “unity” of all minds and gains the ability of Cardionosis which is the ability to read hearts. This state is not altogether beyond description. When this state is related (managed and distributed) properly by those who know and understand it we will see Enlightened people popping up in greater numbers around the world. These people will be in communication with each other and will be the teachers of tomorrow. The right amount of behind-the-scenes preparation needs to be done so as to not enthusiastically bring it out somewhat unprepared as is so often the case. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAS-QzWvj8g&t=686s
I was born in Wisconsin to a Roman Catholic family. My mother June was a talented writer and started her own service club. My father Joe was a Right-of-Way agent for Bell telephone. Joe was an avid golfer and overall sports enthusiast. Joe would play sports with me and I became a life-long athlete.
I was known as a rebel and was expelled from the Catholic school I attended at the age of fourteen. I was arrested at nineteen for being a thief and was placed on probation. Around this time, not being happy, I turned inward. I worked at different jobs that did not satisfy my budding inner life. I traveled down south several times reading books trying to find myself. In 1980, at the age of twenty-seven, I enrolled at a local college. I was now in an interesting environment. I was curious about almost everything and I eventually majored in speech and psychology or speaking and thinking.
Many people told me that I was funny. I was able to make them laugh about unusual subjects. In the summers of 1981 and 1982, while still a college student, I traveled to Minneapolis and pursued the art of stand-up comedy. During these summers I would write comedy, run twenty-five miles a week and perform comedy at night. I was also a juggler but did not juggle in my stand-up act. I took up Hatha yoga and studied nutrition. In Minneapolis, I interacted with the local up-and-coming comedians. Minneapolis at that time had a small close-knit comedy culture that produced a good number of comedians and some became quite famous. I was making audiences laugh shortly after I started. During this time I was also performing comedy in other cities. I planned on being a professional comedian.
Catholicism conditioned me to have a clear inner voice. I had to make people laugh and the only way I could see to do it was to be brutally honest with myself. I thought honesty would align me with common reality. The Sisters of St. Agnes, who taught me, always told me to tell the truth. So I was continually examining myself and weeding out delusional thinking. This became my way of life.
One day in 1983, I was alone at my parents house and all of a sudden I had a massive spontaneous kundalini awakening. The awakening of this spiritual energy made me realize my self. I achieved the ability, among others, to see through other peoples egos or read their hearts. I was forever changed. In 1983 there was no internet or otherwise easily accessible information for me to be able to find out what had happened to me. Because of the massive explosion of energy my nervous and digestive system had to rebuild.
Due to what happened to me, I changed my plans and soon moved in with my best friend and her son. We lived together for many years. I hid out in college going on and off for thirteen years. I read one book after another to understand what happened to me. I eventually received an M.A. in Speech/Rhetoric and also amassed many extra college credits. Currently I am an investor and forever a student.
I am repentant of the trouble I got into years ago and the embarrassment it brought to my parents. People that knew me when I was a kid remark that I sure changed my ways. I went through what I call psycho/spiritual/physical alchemy or I transformed myself by healing the past and living in the ongoing present.
