From Light to Sound: The Spiritual Progression by Dennis Holtje. From the Introduction: “Just what is the spiritual energy known as Sound? What are the distinctions between these two spiritual forces of light and Sound, and why can this progression be so vitally important to the seeker? We will explorer the answers to these questions within this book’s pages. Hopefully, what is written here will also help clarify differences between the many modes of spiritual thinking, including religion and the psychic arts, and their potential benefits and limitations, as we explore how these practices compare with the system of enlightenment known as the Light and Sound teachings.

Humankind’s spiritual endeavor is to establish and fully mature its innate identity as soul. The catalyst for such lofty spiritual attainments is the Light and Sound energies that exist within our own bodies. The ancient teachings of Light and Sound have developed over millennia of study and experience with these great spiritual energies.”

The Hidden Gospel: Decoding the Spiritual Message of the Aramaic Jesus by Neil Douglas-Klotz. (Pub. 1999, Quest Books). Quoting from the book: “Neil Douglas- Klotz’s scholarly work on the spirituality of the Aramaic Jesus brings a unique Middle Eastern perspective to the larger questions of our spiritual life and faith. The richness of the Aramaic worldview and an emphasis on spiritual practice make this book both inspirational and a profoundly practical guide for spiritual seekers. In his study of the Aramaic Jesus, the author looks at various themes expressed in the words and stories of Jesus, not to determine their validity, but rather to uncover their depth and their power to move us ‘to search for our own souls.’ Themes such as breath, holiness, light, Sophia, and love become doorways to a fresh, deep, multilayered interpretation of Yeshua.” An example: “Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit” (Matthew 7:17). “When or if Jesus spoke those words, he spoke them in…. Aramaic. In Aramaic and in all the Semitic languages, the word for ‘good’ primarily means ripe, and the word for ‘corrupt’ or ‘evil’ primarily means unripe. When heard with Aramaic ears, those words might sound more like this: ‘A ripe tree brings forth ripe fruit, an unripe tree brings forth unripe fruit’.” Available from: Abwoon

The Secret of the Creative Vacuum: Man and the Energy Dance by Dr. John Davidson, M. A., (Pub. 1989 by C. W. Daniel Co. Ltd.). Quoting from the Introduction: “My perception of the Universe is primarily a mystical one…. However, I have been raised in a modern world and have a scientific bent of mind, too. Modern physics is on the edge of an abyss. On the one hand, there are those scientists who feel that the answers to all of life’s myseries will be revealed if we can just get the mathematics to work out right. On the other, there are those who intuitively feel that life and consciousness extend beyond material substance. In this hopefully simple book, I would like to propose one possibility and then see how it affects both the human, the mystical and scientific idioms of expression and perception. This simple idea is that vacuum or ‘nothing with spacial dimensions’ is actually a real energy field, or state of subtle material substance, out of which all perceivable matter is formed and within which are found.” Contents include: The Mysterious Vacuum. The Human Constitution. Biological and Healing Implications. The Subtle Body. Science, Mind and Nature. Free Energy and the Real Space Age. An Abundance of Free Energy, etc.
