" ~ Mark Twain ~ Often these things are not beyond your ability to understand. There are phenomena in the universe that while appearing to be supernatural are really quite natural, only we do not yet have the capacity to understand the natural laws through which they operate. Indeed, the study of quantum physics would seem to be implying that the entire universe is held together by some sort of consciousness, operating within incredible laws of nature that we cannot as yet comprehend. The key to even beginning to comprehend these mysteries is “an awakening”, to a journey of discovery undertaken with no bias and no preconceived notion of where you are going, nor what you will experience on that journey.
