Unsere Sonne und die Erde geben genügend Zeichen, damit wir verstehen, dass Realität durch uns und unseren emotionalen Körper entsteht. Wir Menschen sind die Schlüsselfigur für die Entstehung von Leben auf unserem Planeten, und wir sind die Schlüsselfigur, falls Leben wieder verschwinden sollte. Wir wählen nun frei und nicht länger unmündig, welches Leben im Rahmen der Matrix existieren kann. Nur auf der Grundlage des geöffneten Wahrnehmens werden wir verstehen, dass Gott in uns und in jedem Lebewesen ist.

Ist der Buchmarkt reif für das web? Die Betrachtungen des Autors sind auch eine Hommage auf das Buch.
