“Gabriel D. Roberts is a writer to watch and in Born Again to Rebirth he shows us why. This is a terrific book at many levels. Part searing indictment of the born-again Christian establishment by a former insider, part revelation of a personal journey into and out of hell, part surgical exposé of the hidden roots of the hatred, fear and suspicion that divide our world, part return to the source in the understanding that unconditional love, unconditional forgiveness and a willingness to seek the truth without compromise are the only real signposts on our path to self-redemption. As an added bonus it’s a good read! Roberts uses language beautifully with no wasted words. I raced through Born Again to Rebirth in a sitting and I predict you’ll do the same. ”Available in all major formats; I hope you will consider purchasing my book here. Here's a reading from the chapter, "Exodus".

The world once again has the opportunity to watch the ceremonious election of a new pontiff. The seat of power which was first created, based on the Judaic cult, built from the curious and powerful mystery of a one Jesus of Nazareth is soon to be decided upon.
For the first time in 600 years, a standing pope has resigned, citing old age and ailing health. This may be the case, but why wasn’t the resignation due to blatant cover-ups on the worldwide sex scandal that continues on to this very day? Why wasn’t it the appalling and egregious promotion of refusal of birth control and contraception in the third world where child poverty and HIV infection run rampant? The truth is that the real ‘truth’ on such dirty deeds will not voluntarily come to light; the power is too sweet, the money is too good, the people too pliable.… Read the rest
In this world, we see varying levels of what we traditionally call good and evil. We have ways to measure them with our religious notions, but if we see the world through a materialists eyes, what is good or evil? Some may say that good and evil are behaviors that are infringements on the survival of the group, or plan in which the participant is a part of; practically saying, evil is an acting out of animalistic nature that hurts the herd and nothing more. This does not work in all cases though, for there are things people do to themselves that are harmful and therefore seen as bad. The religious crowd sees morality as having come from God: a set of guidelines fraught with consequence and reward if obeyed or rejected, but why are certain things deemed sin? There are things that only seem to hurt us, so how can those things fit with the materialist view?… Read the rest
I had a dream that I inhabited a construction supply warehouse and was picking up materials for my new cosmology. I picked up understanding, gnosis and some new pipes for a free flowing system connected to the logos. I awoke from the metaphor to realize that this dream told me that my worldview, and even who I AM, creates the landscape of my reality. “Blame it on last night’s whiskey,” I said and returned to sleep, but the same idea came again in another way: This time, I was in an art studio that my present self does not yet own. Here I made with paint and canvas my own cosmos. Where previously it was a construct, now it was a work of art.
In Alan Moore’s first film, Jimmy’s End, Jimmy visits an unexpected place in which the big show of creation happens, performed by the great “I AM”.… Read the rest
“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades? Can you loosen Orion’s belt? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons, or lead out the Bear with its cubs? Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?”
– Job 38:31
Despite how one feels about God, or how one defines God, or if God even exists at all, the idea that He needs defense seems a bit weird.
In the quote at the beginning of this post, we see God asking Job if he could change the nature of constellations. Why is this important? The God of the Bible is saying that he was in control of everything. If God plainly says he is in control, then why does he need defending? Why is it that we see him giving a mandate to the Israelites for genocide in the Old Testament?… Read the rest
I love Terence McKenna, but thanks to the detective work of controversial author and gnosticmedia.com founder Jan Irvin, I’m wondering if the late author was worthy of my trust.
Irvin has unearthed a government document that he claims may implicate McKenna as a (gasp!) Central Intelligence Agency plant. Download the document and decide for yourself. Jan has the brass balls to refer to Mckenna as a “Useful idiot”, but what use would he have been to the CIA? McKenna has been useful to me: I can think of few others who have so wonderfully allowed my own personal explorations in spirituality to bloom, but how could the kind of personal transformation espoused by McKenna possibly benefit the intelligence community?
Any thoughts on this? Is this proof to you, my fellow Disinfonauts?
“For some readers, the word consciousness conjures up visions of bearded Hindu masters, to those from a traditional Christian view, consciousness is associated with the devil’s white light intended to fool the eager initiate into allowing a demonic possession. But what is consciousness, really? The standard definition is simply awareness. Doctors judge levels of consciousness while prepping a person for surgery, because the level of awareness of the patient is integral to judging when a surgery can get started. It is simply a term for the level of an individual’s ability to accurately percieve the environment in which they exist.”
