High praise from teens for Fireball’s Travels - The Door to the Temple of Wisdom. The power of meditation is brought to life in this story which both young and old will enjoy. The story begins with Fireball whispering, “It comes out of nowhere! I am disappearing. I am getting absorbed by light.” Fireball is a time traveller who goes to Ancient Egypt where he lives a life as Allah-Din, learns to use mindfulness and meditation, and manifests his desires with one of Warren Buffett’s favorite habits, Sit and Think!
“I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.” Warren Buffett
Remmerswaal says that, “The purpose of Fireball’s Travels, The Door to the Temple of Wisdom, is to teach children how to use their sixth sense, a knowing, a sensing beyond conscious understanding, a gut feeling.”
The story delves into the mysterious and unknown worlds of:
- Psychic Powers
- Psychic Voyages
- The Universal Subconscious Mind
Psychic Powers: Lucas Remmerswaal was thirteen years old when he started reading books about Edgar Cayce, who was known as the sleeping prophet. Edgar Cayce would put himself in a trance-like state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. In this state, he was able to place his mind in contact with all time and space—what we call the “Universal Subconscious Mind.” From there, he could respond to a variety of questions from individuals living in the USA. The questions were asked by a conductor of the readings, usually his wife Gertrude, and each session was documented by his secretary, Gladys Davis. These responses came to be called "readings," and their insights offer practical help and advice to individuals even today.
The majority of Edgar Cayce's readings deal with holistic health and the treatment of illness. Just as it was at the time Cayce was giving readings, today individuals from all walks of life and belief receive physical relief from illnesses or ailments through information given in the readings, though some readings were given as far back as 100 years ago!
The entire set of 14,306 readings includes a vast array of subject matter that can be narrowed down into the following categories: Dreams and Dream Interpretation, ESP and Psychic Phenomena, Health and Wellness, Philosophy and Reincarnation, and Spiritual Growth, Meditation, and Prayer.
In one of the readings, Cayce revealed: “Mind is indeed the builder. What is held in the act of mental vision becomes a reality in the material experience. We are gradually builded to that image created within our own mental being.” Edgar Cayce
Psychic Voyages: Lucas Remmerswaal was inspired by the research he did into the life and habits of mind of Nikola Tesla, a man of the world, well read, with a Renaissance type education. Tesla changed our world with his inventions. He was the father of alternating current, radio, and robotics. Tesla described his ‘psychic voyages’ as spontaneous mind travels.
"Then, instinctively, I commenced making mind trips beyond the limits of the small world of which I had knowledge and I saw new scenes. These were at first very blurred and indistinct, and would flit away when I tried to concentrate my attention upon them but, by and by, I succeeded in fixing them; they gained in strength and distinctness and finally assumed the concreteness of a real thing. I soon discovered that my best comfort was attained if I simply went on in my vision further and further, getting new impressions all the time, and so I began to travel - of course in my mind. Every night (and sometimes during the day) when alone, I would start on my journeys, see new places, cities and countries, live there, meet people and make friendships and acquaintances and, however unbelievable, it is a fact that they were just as real and dear to me as those in actual life and not one bit less intense in their manifestations. This I did constantly until I was seventeen, when my thoughts turned seriously to invention." Nikola Tesla
Universal Subconscious Mind: In researching this Infinite Intelligence, Lucas Remmerswaal came across many different names for it: “Akashic Records,” "Subconscious Mind," "Collective Unconscious," "Superconscious Mind," and the "Oversoul."
Remmerswaal’s desire to understand how intuition works, based on the latest scientific investigations; led him to Nassim Haramein, who spent over 30 years researching and discovering connections in physics, mathematics, geometry, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, and chemistry, as well as anthropology and ancient civilizations.
“...quantum fluctuations of the structure of spacetime itself, so that Consciousness is not something inside of you, Consciousness is something with which you are interacting, a field, that is inside of you and outside of you…...Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking inside a radio for the announcer.” Nassim Haramein
Remmerswaal’s curiosity was rewarded by Astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell, who was part of the Apollo 14 space crew that flew to the moon in 1971 and landed the lunar module Antares on its surface. Dr. Mitchell was the sixth man to walk on the moon. While standing on its surface looking back at earth, he felt catapulted into a state of spiritual transformation. “I realized there was a higher intelligence in the universe.” Edgar Mitchell
Upon returning to earth, Mitchell left NASA to found the Institute for Noetic Sciences, an organization dedicated to scientific research into mysteries of the mind and the nature of consciousness. In his book, The Way of the Explorer: An Apollo Astronaut’s Journey through the Material and Mystical Worlds, Mitchell connected the dots between outer space, inner space, evolution, and global consciousness. He wrote, “There are no unnatural or supernatural phenomenon, only very large gaps in our knowledge of what is natural. We should strive to fill those gaps of ignorance.” Edgar Mitchell
