PURE VISION connects the powerful Magdalene energy with the Eastern and Western myths of the Wish-fulfilling Jewel and the Grail. As history has conveyed, politics and spirituality are inseparable -- two sides of the same coin in constant play. The character of Maggie Seline, a contemporary woman initiating a powerful proposal for the internationalization of the old city of Jerusalem, must face the controversy that ensues from her ideological stance. Thus, the central theme of the novel underscores the need and importance of women's voices in establishing peace and resolution. As a call to the feminine to bring balance and nurturance back to a planet in need of sane answers -- transforming energies of aggression and destruction to that of creative intelligence -- Pure Vision challenges us to make a leap, to rise above hatred and blame with the goal of creating an international peace zone, a world center where the highest aims of humankind can be realized .
The Kalachakra, the Wheel of Time, is one of the central esoteric practices of Vajrayana Buddhism. As the Dalai Lama has stated, "The Kalachakra is a vehicle for world peace." The fact that the Kalachakra vision offers a broad and comprehensive view of the world and all the various relational patternings within it makes his assertion all the more powerful. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the Kalachakra is the main practice of Shambhala, a hidden land known only to be accessible to those whose hearts and minds are pure. Like the New Jerusalem of the Revelation, Shambhala symbolizes the manifestation of a heaven on earth.
The Holy Lance, thrust into the side of Christ by the Centurion Gaius Cassius Longinus to hasten his death, has been sought and held by the greatest of leaders throughout history. From Constantine to Adolf Hitler, the Spear of Longinus has been perceived as a source of pure power to be used for either good or evil. This talisman of power was one of many sought by the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi Occult Bureau, which among its various functions was dedicated to procuring spiritual treasures thought by Hitler to possess occult powers. Hitler's first act upon conquering Austria was to seize the Spear from the Hofburg Treasure House.Within hours of the Spear 's discovery by U.S. Army soldiers in Nuremburg at the end of World War II, Hitler committed suicide.
Within PURE VISION, The Book of Women chronicles the powerful spirit of women around the world in their quest for peace and human rights. From Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, women converge upon Jerusalem, demanding an end to the senseless violence and atrocities. With the view of freeing the Holy City as central to world peace, they move en masse with their principles and ideals for human decency as their only sword. Their movement is the impetus behind a new socio-political ideal -- a new Jerusalem -- the creation of a new paradigm which finally realizes the ancient city as what it was always meant to be: The City of Peace.
If politics and spirituality are to be considered as two sides of the same coin, then engineering and science are the circular rim which binds them. Ancient civilizations from Atlantis, Luxor, Macchu Picchu and Stonehenge understood the central thread that weaves the fabric of life: There is inherent energy in the volume created by shape. Plato in his Timaeus listed the five sacred shapes as cataloged by Pythagoras, each form relating to a seperate elemental energy. In particular, the octahedron -- two four-sided pyramids joined at their base -- relates to the element of air. Intuitively, Nikola Tesla understood these relationships and tapped into ancient "mind fields" when he discovered alternating current electricity and the electric motor. A genius whose tremendous discoveries have shaped the modern world, Tesla's experiments still baffle modern researchers, none of whom have been able to duplicate his generation of ball lightning -- ephemeral balls of plasma -- a phenomenon which appears mysteriously, floats slowly, then either vanishes or explodes. His greatest conception -- the realization of a world-wide energy grid powered by the wireless transmission of energy -- has never been realized. That is, until now. Stephen Einsof, the visionary scientist in PURE VISION, finally unravels the interlocking knot between the standing stone "technology" of the Druids and Tesla's wireless energy theory. The octahedron turns out to be the key. Unfortunately, Einsof's dream could become a nightmare in the hands of Giovanni Mabus, a powerful billionare who is sponsoring an upcoming peace conference in Jerusalem.
As the world broaches a dangerous summit -- socioeconomic and financial collapse -- having been drained by wars and ecological disasters, the time arrives for the mystery of the Grail is to be revealed. The Guardians of the Way, protectors of the world's spiritual teachings and treasures, move a two-thousand-year old parchment to Bodhgaya in northern India . . . a parchment that reveals a long-held secret, one that leads to a modern day revelation about Jerusalem, the future of the Middle East and a new paradigm for the world.
