Trigger of Falling from Great Heights
author of Sacred Science: Meditation,
Transformation, Illumination, is a life-long student of Christ Jesus as well as a direct disciple of
Yogananda, the first yoga master of India to live and teach in the West.
In Paulsen's book, Christ
Consciousness, Paulsen describes his near-death experience which led
him to create concepts and meditation which offers a path to the pure Self within, and the Kingdom of Heaven. The path leads the reader through meditation, conduct, study, speech, association, nourishment, work and recreation, and the vessel is virtue. To attempt to live the 12
virtues ... loyalty, patience, honesty, perseverance, compassion, continence, equanimity, courage, humility, temperance, charity and faith, is to ...
plant positive seeds in the field of power around us."
Paulsen created the Solar Logos Foundation
which is composed of people who desire to practice a conscious way of life based upon the teachings of an eightfold path of right living and twelve divine virtues. These teachings promote virtuous thought, positive action, and the attainment of constant communion with God.
following is Paulsen's NDE as described in his book, Christ
Norman was working as a
lineman for the telephone company. He climbed a telephone pole and snapped his safety
strap into place but because he was in a hurry, he made the mistake of not
looking to see that his safety strap was securely in place. It wasn't.
When he leaned back on the tool belt, it came undone.
I was falling
backward. I could hardly believe what was happening. It was too late to
grab the pole or anything with my hands.
"Oh God, this is it!"
I was more than thirty feet above the
ground, too high to survive this fall without injury. I watched the pole
move quickly away from my field of vision as I plummeted earthward, head
I tried to prepare myself for the
shock that was about to come when I hit the ground. Instead, I felt
nothing at all. There was a bright flash of light, like the sun shining in
my face and then silence.
I am standing stationary in the air,
high above the familiar coastline of Santa Barbara. There, far below,
waves on the surface of the ocean are moving inward toward the shore. My
memory is beginning to reveal what has happened. My physical body has
suffered a bad fall; it is lying somewhere down below.
I have been pulled forth from the
physical body by the dual forces of Christ. My physical body may be dead
or badly injured. The all-pervading sounds of Hum and Om
fill the sea of life surrounding me. To the northwest a vision of
unparalleled magnificence confronts me; the astral world is suspended
rainbow-like on the horizon.
I am moving northward now, impelled
by silent motion, my arms outstretched before me. I am flying higher and
higher without effort. There below me is the whole coastline of
California! The soft, astral colors surrounding the Earth hang like a
perpetual aurora borealis in every direction. My thoughts now reveal facts
long known from deep within my soul. To leave the Earth in my present
form, I must exit through the north polar vortex. Here, there is a door.
Moving northward, my thoughts remind
me of all my earthly commitments left behind. There below is San Luis
Obispo on the west coast. An astral image of a meditating Buddha - it must
be representing Dad! I have not said goodbye to him. This really troubles
me; now the image is slowly disappearing like a fog.
A distant memory reminds me of my
destination out there through the north polar vortex. Here the moving
currents meet, creating an aperture in the magnetic field. The Northern
Hemisphere is spread out beneath me now; how fantastic! Large portions of
it are visible through the haze of astral clouds; the colors are more
magnificent than any I have ever seen. Again my thoughts reveal facts long
known from deep within my soul.
Mother Earth is operated by two
master forces of vortex, one descending through the Earth's core at the
North Pole, and one ascending through and around the surface at the South
Pole. The movement of astral and physical energies from the South Pale to
North Pole swings the needle of the compass perpetually toward the
magnetic North Pole. Mother Earth, with her forces of nature, spins on
divine time amidst the forces of vortex, her original creators. Dead
worlds, such as our moon, cease to spin, as the forces of vortex are
The physical body of man is similar
to Mother Earth. Both are created and operated by the actions of vortex,
masculine and feminine, the right and left hands of God. The crown of our
head at birth, and for months thereafter, is soft and throbbing with each
heartbeat. It is here that we find the long lost door to Divine Spirit and
the gateway to the kingdom of heaven, at the magnetic north pole of man.
It is also through this door on the crown of the head, that the divine
masculine creative force enters into the tree of life, our spinal column.
It moves downward in a counterclockwise vortex. The magnetic south pole of
man is the lower end of the spine. Here the divine feminine force enters,
moving upward in a clockwise vortex. It is from the movements of these
sacred dual forces of life and consciousness that Divine Spirit spun and
wove the creation and all the images contained therein into visible form.
The motion of these sacred forces of vortex, and the understanding
thereof, provides the key to the hidden door, which opens into the
timeless existence of Divine Spirit, Mother-Father God, I Am That I Am.
Our Divine Parents hold the expanding
spheres of creation in Their right and left hands of vortex, producing
duality in the creation. All visible forms are the production and the
reproduction of the sacred forces of vortex moving on invisible arcs to
themes reflecting the golden proportions of 1.618.
The physical bodies of man and woman
on Earth evolved forth from the mud of the waters and did not have
immortal life. Humanity today can receive the gift of immortality (Christ
consciousness) only when we allow the angels to descend with the masculine
and feminine sacred forces of vortex, bringing about the anointment and
the Baptism of Fire! These dual and divine forces of Christ can unite
within us and bring about the conception and birth of the divine spiritual
embryo, the Christ child, within our heart centers. Human beings, as the
sons and daughters of man, existing in simple and self-conscious states,
have little present knowledge of the sacred forces of vortex administered
by the angels. They are unaware of their predestined bonding and union
within (the birth of Christ consciousness around the divine
spiritual embryo). Because these divine forces find it very difficult to
enter humanity on Earth at this time, humankind ceases to spin or move on
God's time. Human beings find themselves out of harmony with the garden of
the world and all its creatures, including their own brothers and sisters,
with whom they are constantly at war. The family of man unfortunately,
with the exception of a small minority, has become a dead world unto
itself, like our moon. Ceasing to spin on God's time, man is always too
early or too late.
These things passed before me as I
observed the fantastic blue orb of Mother Earth beneath me, surely the
only perfect poem. Magnificent are the divine images of Your creation,
Father-Mother! Oh, let me be with You always, just as a humble son. I
truly love You, and all I see and know of You, my heavenly Father and
I reflected again on the image of my earthly
father. I must somehow say goodbye to him before I leave. Turning,
I observed a swirling white mass of light particles moving downward
beneath me like a sparkling spiral stairway. Yes, a stairway to heaven
does exist. I am now moving downward within the brilliant white fiery
There is my body lying at the foot of
the telephone pole, covered with blankets. Without sensation, I enter it
again. My eyes open to see concerned faces looking down upon me.
"There is no doctrine, no belief to pursue other than knowing that this
Being of Light is God."
