‘TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION.’ – Mark Twain
Many ancient societies believed in the existence of the spiritual world.
For instance, ancient African cultures claimed the spiritual world existed and they believed spirits influenced people’s health, and material success. They thus offered sacrifices to spirits to make them happy. Also, ancient North Americans believed in spiritual entities and claimed they descended from the spiritual world and could interact with human beings.
Besides Americans, ancient Arabians believed in the existence of the Djinn, which were spiritual beings that could be both good and evil. They believed the Djinn could shapeshift and perform human activities such as eating or sleeping.
For this reason, it could be impossible to convince ancient folks that spirits were a product of hallucinations because they firmly knew that spiritual beings existed.
However, most folks in the modern world don’t believe in the spiritual world. Our mechanistic view of the world has made us to only believe in the physical realm. Furthermore, the fact that most of us have never come into contact with spirits or ghosts has made us firmly believe that they don’t exist.
But are we right?
We are wrong because the spiritual world exists and most of us can’t see spirits because the modern society lost its connection to the spirit world. We focus so much on the material world and for this reason, our consciousness levels have become too low for us to perceive the spiritual world.
Furthermore, we are unaware that practices such as shamanism can alter our consciousness and enable us to perceive the spiritual world and even ask for guidance from good spirits. Most ancient societies were able to gain knowledge and healing powers from the spiritual world because they practiced shamanism. However, the modern society has been brainwashed to believe such practices are a form of madness, and ghosts/spirits are hallucinations.
The society is unaware that some contemporary scientists and researchers support the possibility of the existence of spirits/ghosts. For instance, Marie D. Jones, a researcher, claims spirits might exist, for she wrote, ‘ghosts/spirits may be the result of the synching of particles and matter between various levels of existence creating a literal means for moving between dimensions of reality.’ Moreover, she also thought that ‘ghosts might be a form of trapped energy between parallel dimensions or universes.’ Does this explanation of ghosts sound similar to the ancient idea that some ghosts/spirits are dead people trapped in the physical world?
Ghosts/spirits, or whatever you call them, exist, and it’s true they can guide us when necessary. The modern society will realize this if only it becomes open-minded and constantly conscious of the fact that the physical world came from the spiritual realm.
The society must strive to comprehend the spiritual world because it might be the secret to attaining higher wisdom and knowledge that can allow us to live in higher dimensions where there is only pure joy and love. We have to regain our lost connection to the spiritual realm.

9 Amazing Prayers of Jesus from the Hidden Gospel of Peace
There are many teachings of Jesus the ancient elite never wanted the public to know. Most of these teachings can be found in the Essene Gospel of Peace, which was a little book translated into English by Edmond Bordeaux.
The book reveals Jesus’ teachings about our oneness with the earth, the power of our thoughts, the importance of inner peace, how people should pray, and so on.
Here, I’ll share with you the different types of prayer – from the book – that Jesus wanted us to adopt.
- Prayer to the Angel of Sun
‘Angel of Sun,
Holy Messenger of the earthly mother (Mother Earth),
enter the holy temple within me,
and give me the fire of Life.’
- Prayer to the Angel of Water
‘Angel of Water,
Holy Messenger of the Earthly Mother,
enter the blood that flows in me,
wash my body in the rain,
that falls from the heavens,
and give me the water of life.’
- Prayer to the Angel of Air
‘Angel of Air,
Holy Messenger of the earthly mother,
enter deep within me,
as the swallow plummets from the sky,
that I may know the secrets of the wind,
and the music of the stars.’
- Prayer to the Angel of Earth
Angel of earth,
make fruit for my seed,
and with your power,
give life to my body.’
- Prayer to the Angel of Love
‘Angel of love,
descend upon me and feel with love all my feelings.
For it is by love that the Heavenly Father,
the Earthly Mother,
and the sons of men become one.
Love is eternal and stronger than death.
And every night should the Sons of Light
bath in the Holy Water of the Angel of Love.’
- Prayer to the Angel of Wisdom
‘Angel of wisdom,
descend on me,
and feel with wisdom all my thoughts.’
- Prayer to God (A)
‘Our father who art in heaven,
send to all the Sons of Men,
your Angel of Peace,
and send to our thoughts the Angel of Power.’
- Prayer to God (B)
‘Our father who art in heaven,
send to all the Sons of Men your angel of peace,
and send to our body the angel of life
to dwell in their forever.’
- Prayer to God (C)
‘Our Father who art in heaven,
send to all sons of men your angel of peace,
and send to the kingdom of our earthly mother the angels of joy,
so that our hearts may be full of singing
and gladness as we nestle in the arms of our earthly mother.’
I believe in these prayers because they are similar to the prayers of many ancient societies that had a good understanding of spirituality. Anyway, besides the above prayers, there are many more prayers from the hidden teachings of Jesus which I’ll share with you in my future posts.

Living in Harmony with Nature: The Wisdom of Stoicism
‘If you live in harmony with nature you will never be poor.’ – Seneca
Stoicism was an ancient philosophy that constantly reminded people about the unpredictability of life and the importance of rising above one’s emotions and external conditions. As well, it strived to enlighten people about the importance of accepting whatever happens and living in harmony with nature.
Today, I’ll focus on the stoic teaching of living in harmony with nature because it enables people to reach their full potential and live a fulfilling life.
Living in Harmony with Nature according to Stoicism
‘Let us keep to the way which nature has mapped out for us, and let us not swerve therefrom.’ – Seneca
According to stoicism, nature designed us to flourish because it wants us to attain the full expression of our human potential. It thus planted within us a desire of wanting to become the highest version of ourselves and provided us with everything we need to be our highest self.
For this reason, living in harmony with nature is to strive to reach our highest potential, which can be done by developing our character and perfecting reason. We perfect reason by cultivating wisdom, and we develop character by living a virtuous life through embracing justice/good-heartedness, courage, and self-discipline.
To the stoics, self-discipline meant controlling our emotions and embracing humility and forgiveness. Besides, courage meant acting fearlessly while justice meant fairness and good-heartedness.
The stoics believed anyone who strived to reach her full potential by developing her reasoning faculty and a good character will live a fulfilled life as she will be in harmony with nature.
Studying nature enabled me to realize that every living thing was designed to grow into its full potential. For instance, mangoes are designed to develop into huge trees with several fruits while whales are designed to grow into huge mammals that give birth to live young.
For this reason, I firmly support the Stoics’ idea that we were also designed to live up to our full potential, and I believe we live in harmony with nature by aligning with this design.
As well, I agree that we’ll live a fulfilling life if we develop our character because a good character enables us to establish good relationships, and connect with the right people. Moreover, it enables us to rise above failure and attain prosperity.
Lastly, I support the fact that perfecting our reason leads to a fulfilling life since it results in a positive perception towards life and enables us to make healthy judgments, wise decisions, and perform the right actions.
Hope you enjoyed the wisdom of the stoics. Anyway, besides the idea of living in harmony with nature, I will continue providing you with more powerful stoic teachings in my future articles because I recently discovered that practicing stoicism leads to a happier and peaceful life.
