These DAILY MESSAGES FROM ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE are from December 2018
The quote today is from Emanuel Swedenborg, a Swedish noble, scientist, philosopher and mystic probably knew more on this subject than anyone else and wrote more on this topic than anyone before or since. His contemporary Immanuel Kant didn't know what do to with him and his great genius insights.
Many of the concepts found in the ELYIUM'S PASSAGE novel series were inspired by him.

Ludwig Wittgenstein was an Austrian/British philosopher and considered to be one of the very brightest philosophers anywhere in the world. One of his peers said:
"Well, God has arrived. I met him on the 5:15 train. He has a plan to stay in Cambridge permanently."
John Maynard Keynes, after meeting with Wittgenstein at his arrival in Cambridge, in a letter to his wife Lydia Lopokova (18 January 1929)
This quote, I'm sure you would never hear from anyone else, so exquisite were his thoughts. NGM

James Dean seems to have possessed wisdom far beyond the years of his short life. Did he have a premonition he would live such a short life? Makes yoiu wonder
When I first saw this quote by Russell I was a bit surprised since it seemed a tad mysticial for such a 'logical' mind. But I'm pleased to know our thoughts align, at least on this topic of the ego. Much could be said about these words of his but I will let his message speak for itself.
What's the Matter? A discussion on the nature of matter and what certain eminent physicists had to say about the substratum of reality. https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/what-s-the-matter
This DAILY MESSAGE features an old saying that originated with Hermes in ancient Egypt (although we really don't know if he was fact or myth). Though it is open to interpretation, is seems to infer the pre-existence of souls. Whether you believe in this or not, I wrote a post on the topic (HOW OLD ARE YOU?) that is mostly extracted from a dialogue ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: SURREAL ADVENTURES, Book Two of the series. The historical significance of what happened in 544 AD may suprise many and why the West took the philosophical/theological turn it did from its ancient teachings (eg Origen). Not always is the pen (or quill) mightier than the sword. To read the post go to:
Hint, they both had it right, only from different perspectives
The ego is not us, but our illusory nemises, the mind separated from the heart, the centre of our being. Not our real face
What can I say?
Ouspenky wrote the book on consciousness! Literally.
All too true... Sad
OVERVIEW OF THE ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE SERIES
The series will involve five Elysium narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding about life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed, or could believe.
An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: THE SUMMIT
The following comments are among the first Amazon reviews of Elysium’s Passage: The Summit. All are Five Stars! Others reader reviews are included below, along with excerpts from two professional reviews. To read full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humour; Mr. Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging that takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humor together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“The Elysium’s Passage series challenges and excites the reader while taking him into parallel quests for truth with the hero, James. It can be a fast fantasy read or a longer deliberation about what is reality or illusion; veracity or platitude. Take the journey!”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
