How important are dreams?

When we are dreaming, we are accessing a consciousness that is less dense and less conditioned than our consciousness in the wake states. Dreams enable us to experience a different reality. There are three different types of dreams: the common dream, which is the most frequent, permits the release of tension by clearing our visual, auditory and tactile memory; the lucid dream, in which we are aware of the fact that we are dreaming, and in which the situations we encounter prepare us for certain events in real life; and the third type, the most extraordinary one, is the exceptional dream, which is really an astral projection. This is literally when we leave our bodies during sleep and journey in the astral world towards other dimensions. ~Alex Mero

Intuitive Perception

Is intuitive perception and for what purpose do we experience it?

Intuitive perception –an inner sense or “feeling”-  comes to us before our minds have the chance to name or interpret what we are seeing or hearing. It’s a perception that is outside the flow of our ordinary and conditioned thoughts, in a state where the ego does not intervene, and which permits an inner connection with an intelligence that transcends ours. Intuitive perception gives us insights into our personal destiny. The particularity of intuitive perception is that it comes to us effortlessly and without intellectual exercise.

Psychoanalysis and Ego

What is your view on psychoanalysis?

Wanting to know more about our person and the situations from the past that have contributed to making us what we are now, is not an unhealthy curiosity in itself. However, it is important to keep in mind that the information we obtain from such sessions, permits us to know more about our person, the ego-based content, and not our true selves. Psychoanalysis is but a first step. If we want to know who we truly are, we have to undergo a further step, and that is to leave behind this ego content once we recognize it for what it is…

 

Role Model

What type of person or personality do you consider a role model?

I generally accord little importance to a person’s reputation or the extent of their reputation. Instead, I focus on their spiritual power. I have had the opportunity to meet many wise people in my lifetime, and I have noticed that they all generate a natural power which is very apparent to those around them. Something I find exceptional about these wise people is that none of them seem to have a semblance of an ego; ego being that which leads to self-centeredness and egocentricity. The spiritual power that these people radiate comes from a deep inner knowledge that gives them serenity, freedom, and unshakable certitude.

Second Novel: The Lucid Voice

What can you tell us about your second novel?

“The Lucid Voice” is a book that accentuates existential questions and conveys the idea that in order to have an authentic and positive influence, we must search for our true potential, explore all possibilities and envision all manners of exchange and change. This book should help us integrate into the present while developing our hidden talents, so that we can live in harmony with ourselves, others, nature, and the energy that vivifies the Universe.

Nature being Threatened

Your novel is, amongst other things, a human adventure experienced through natural elements. However, today, nature and its very existence are being threatened. What do you see as a solution to this problem?

The answer to your question can be summarized briefly: we need to reassess human greed. Looking back in history, man lived in harmony with nature for many years, but then a sense of ownership developed, and this resulted in exploitation of all our natural resources. In order to increase our prosperity we’ve abused these natural resources, and the consequences are being seen and felt today, and will be for generations to come. Given the limitless greed of humans, the earth has begun to respond, because just like human bodies, the earth is a biological organism with an intricate level of balance, and so when its balance is disrupted, it reacts. The only solution is a better relationship with nature, and a change in our behavior, so that balance can be restored. We need to review and change those aspects of human behavior that seek to satisfy unlimited desires- all which stem from greed- and to adapt new behaviors that respect the limited resources of our planet.
