JUNE'S DAILY MESSAGES FROM THE PASSAGE

This quote from Elysium's Passage: Mystical Romance (book 3 in the series), can be summed up in the words of the ancient hermetic adage: As within, so without. However that is not always so obvious in the mortal state of bodily existence where one may look old and haggerd, at least until one transtions into their immortal body upon death of the mortal body. Then, what is inside is naturaly expressly outward.
This is illlustrated and explained in great detail in Mystical Romance. Publication is expected in the summer of 2020.

I agree with Paul Newman in his quote except I don't think being alone is the only way to grow. It is necessary but not sufficient. We also grown through our relationships, sometimes the more difficult, the more we can grow as we come to know ourselves by how we respond to conflict. However, being alone allows us to process the situation, learn from it and grow in our understanding.. that's growth!
Schopenhauer's observation is very true, in that aloneness allows us to think our own thoughts and not be distracted by others and external circumstances. In that we can find freedom, however, if we bring negative thoughts into our mind, there is little freedom there since they have a way of holding us in their captivity. Thoughts of fear, hate, and vengeance are a prison house, whereas, thoughts of love, peace and well-being are essential for experiencing freedom in solitude.

I think these words from the native American's perpecitve speaks for itself. I'll only add how much in common this perspective seems to have with the Eastern tradition of Oneness.

In a sense our life ahead is "a vast glowing empty page." We can decide whatever we wish to write in it, provided we don't assume the script has already been written based on what we wrote on our past pages.
Kerouac may have written these words but I think Ingrid Bergman's picture says it all. To me she says, in defiantly, "I'm going to do what I want to do with my life and I'll do it in my own way."
It’s easy to get caught in a rut in life but if we assume that we'll never get out, then we probably won't. However, if we see that we are the author of what is yet to be written on the blank pages of our life's future, then we might be more inclined to live our life with more excitement and greater expectations of what only we can scribe on the blank pages of our unwritten drama.
In the ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE novel series we meet a disillusioned young philosopher by the name of James Phillips who wanted to do something different with this life, even if it was for just a short time. But after that decision was made, nothing remained the same. I hope you will read the Elysium's Passage series and participate in his exciting drama. Perhaps it too will serve as an inspiration to your life's unwritten story!

Albert Camus, the French existentialist philosopher and writer seemed to understand this topic rather well. I chose these two quotes on the topic of rebellion since they reminded me certain stages in my life when things weren't working for me.
Would you say you are a bit of a rebel too?
I hope so, particularly if you need to make some changes rather than being afraid while you suffer in quiet desperation. I think we all need to be a rebel in our way at various points in our life. If your heart isn't in what you are doing, then its time to recognize that and move on. It can be cathartic, and if we feel cleansed, then in that sense, there might be an element of innocence to it as Camus suggests.
For me, what this meant on a deeper level was opposing mediocrity and giving creative expression to what my spirit wished to express... and to rise above the tyranny of conformity and other's expectations… to not worry about external 'success' and be my own man.
That's why I continue to write the Elysium's Passage novel series

OVERVIEW OF THE ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE SERIES
The ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE series involves five novel 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.

VIDEO INTRODUCTION OF SERIES
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)
