Sting"This book brilliantly exposes how the very roots of the madness that is threatening life on earth are ultimately to be found within our own psyche. I love that Paul is taking seriously the profound implications of what it means that all of us are living in a mass, shared dream. His startlingly clear premise challenges me to reflect upon both the world and myself in radically mind-altering ways. Something important is coming through his imagination-filled musings; his visionary insight into the intrinsic genius of our species feels inspired by a truly creative, compassionate and enlivening spirit. I always look forward to reading Paul’s work; it stimulates me to greater heights of lucidity, disturbs me enough to awaken me out of my complacency, and encourages me to fly on the wings of the creative imagination. The world would be a better place if everyone read this book. His vision is a royal gift for all of us. It makes me want to sing. Bravo!” — Sting

1. INTRODUCTION

For the last few months, all I’ve wanted to do is to read about quantum physics.[1] I’ve been studying quantum physics off and on for decades, but have never gone as far down the rabbit hole as I have this time.… Read more

REACHING THE EDGE

The psyche [1] is multidimensional and nonlocal; it is not limited nor constrained by either time or space. It can express itself via inner thoughts, feelings, intuitions, dreams, and body symptoms as well as through seemingly external synchronistic events, whereby an inner situation gets mirrored through an outer event (please see my article “Catching the Bug of Synchronicity”). This should come as no surprise considering that our waking life is indeed a dream, as all the great enlightened teachers continually remind us.Read more

THE CREATIVE SPIRIT. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

After my first year of college, I remember wanting to take some time off so that I could figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I had always been a good student, and my parents had high hopes and dreams for my success, so the last thing they wanted was for me to take time off from school.… Read more

DUPED BY THE BEAST OF WAR

As if living in a never-ending “war-time,” the war drums are once again fast approaching on the horizon. The country I live in, the United States of America, already involved in multiple wars – some overt, others covert – is threatening to attack another sovereign nation, this time Syria. The whole thing is totally insane; our government’s reliance on military solutions is pathological,[1] a form of mental illness.[2] It certainly seems as if our country doesn’t know how to imagine solutions outside the paradigm of war.… Read more

THE BATTLE FOR OUR ANGEL

There is a particularly powerful practice in the Islamic tradition that was specially crafted so as to dissolve the pernicious effects of what the Native Americans call “wetiko[i]” (a word which, simply put, refers to the spirit of evil). Similar to the way we reflect upon images in a dream and discover their symbolic nature, in esoteric mystical Islam, the practice of “ta’wil” is designed to transmute the sensory data of the physical world into symbols, transfiguring the world, as well as ourselves in the process.… Read more

THE MASTERS OF DECEPTION

A few days before my interview on Why Shamanism Now? Internet Radio Show, I received an email from the well-known anthropologist, author and shamanic practitioner Hank Wesselman. He mentioned that what I am calling “wetiko” the Hawaiian kahuna tradition was also familiar with, and called these mind parasites the “‘e‘epa.” He mentioned that he talks about these archon-like entities in his latest book The Bowl of Light: Ancestral Wisdom from a Hawaiian Shaman, which I immediately went out and bought.… Read more

THE KABBALAH’S REMARKABLE IDEA

by Paul Levy

Download PDF Version of Article

During the question and answer period for the book release of my new book Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil, someone asked what was I going to write about next. Without having to blink, I responded “Kabbalah,” which is considered to be one of the most profound spiritual and intellectual movements in all of human history. Soon after the publication of my book I had discovered, much to my surprise, that the Kabbalah had a similarly radical view on many of the things I had written about, particularly the nature and role of evil in the cosmic drama.… Read more

THE SANDY HOOK HORROR: WILL IT WAKE US UP FROM OUR COLLECTIVE NIGHTMARE?

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting of innocent, beautiful children and their heroic adult protectors has touched something really deep within the sacred heart of humanity; it feels as if a tipping point has been reached. I live in Portland, Oregon, where days before the Newtown massacre there was a shooting in the local mall in which two people were killed. My first reaction upon hearing about the shooting of so many defenseless woman and children was a combination of horror while at the same time I found myself not surprised, as I had the thought, “This is what happens in the midst of a collective psychosis.” Our society, as well as our species, is suffering from a psychic epidemic of titanic proportions.… Read more

AN EYE-OPENING SYNCHRONICITY

When I was first introduced to the world of psychiatry in May of 1981 at 24 years of age, I experienced a particularly unique synchronistic event that rocked my world and changed my life forever. I burst onto the scene of psychiatry in a dramatic way, as a life-transforming event happened within the very first minute of my being admitted to my very first psychiatric hospital.Read more »

THE BIRTH OF SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS

I remember the moment like no other. I was seven years old, in second grade. The teacher, Mrs. Sherman, wrote the letters e-n-v-e-l-o-p-e on the blackboard, and asked who knew what it spelled. I enthusiastically raised my hand, as I knew what word those letters made, and I was excited to share my realization with everyone. The teacher called on me, and as I was about to answer her question, my world changed forever. Read more »
