Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Site disclaimer says this is part true, part fiction. why is it presented as fiction?
Answer: It is biographical in the sense that 30 years of spiritual experience is condensed into a 1 year story. Almost everything on the website is a personal experience cloaked in fiction.
Question: Who is the Master, is he real and is he alive?
Answer: The Master is based on true experience. Many times in my life I traveled to be with my teacher as he taught the mysteries of God and our special relationship with the Eternal. He is dead now. The website presents the teachings of three men that all say the same thing in three different ways. Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Lakshmanjoo and Herbert. W. Armstrong.
The website reflects all three of these men's teaching. In tone and character, the Master is modeled after Paramahansa Yogananda. The most amazing portions of the website reflect the teachings of Swami Lakshmanjoo. The War of the Angels is consistent with the teachings of Herbert. W. Armstrong.

Question: What is the deal with 12:34?
Answer: I have received the following e-mails.
Since I was a little boy I have had this phenomenon. I donít remember how it started.. or even why. But, it has always been associated with some type of higher power. I do believe in god. I am not really an active Christian. I have not been to church for a few years.. But I quietly prey to god in my mind often.
I remember back when I was ten or eleven I began seeing 12:34 on my clock. When I did.. I would get Goosebumps. It started happening so often that I started showing my mom. She started to get concerned because it happened so often that she could no longer dismiss it.
It has been happening for the last few days a lot. Something told me to use yahoo.. And type 12:34. I did, and I was extremely surprised to find your story. It brought tears and Goosebumps.
Just letting you know that I'm another person that the 12:34 thing happens to. I found this site through a Livejournal communty called Otherkin. I'm 16 years old and it's been happening to me for about a year now. I thought it was just some silly thing but it's weird that it happens to other people too.... So I thought I'd drop you an e-mail saying, .. yeah here's just one more person that happens to.
I used to be surprised when I got e-mails like this. I get about 1 a month from people like you who have been experiencing the 12:34 phenomenom and subsequently found my website because of it. Something is definitely going on. It started for me about 5 years ago in earnest but had been sneaking up on me since 1992. It's another part of the website that is based on my real personal experience.
Question: What is your religion?
Answer: The Only True Religion is having a relationship with GOD. Any information, belief, action or non-action that improves one's relationship with God is part of the True Religion. Any information, belief, action, or non-action that does not further one's relationship with God, is not part of the True Religion and is either unessential or false.
This pure religion is recorded in the Bible as being practiced by Enoch. Enoch lived before the flood, which occured a few hundred years before the Tower of Babel. This pure religion was lost to the world after the Tower of Babel."
Genesis 5:18-24  Jared lived one hundred and sixty-two years, and begot Enoch.  After he begot Enoch, Jared lived eight hundred years, and had sons and daughters.  So all the days of Jared were nine hundred and sixty-two years; and he died.  Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methuselah.  After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.  So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.  And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, "and was not found, because God had taken him"; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Jude 1:14-15  Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,  to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
Ungodly people are people without a relationship with God.
All other religions, with the exception of Hinduism, have their roots and beginnings after the Tower of Babel incident. Hinduism contains fragments of the pure religion in the ancient yoga sutras of Patanjali."
Essential Knowledge of the One True Religion in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali:
Samadhi Pada 1:23-26
The carnal mind can be transcended into realization by profound meditation upon God and total surrender to God.
God is the Supreme, totally free from conflicts, unaffected by actions and untouched by cause and effect.
God is the unsurpassed and unrivaled onesource of omniscent wisdom.
God is transcendent, yet unfolds the entirety of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence.
God is the unlimited undefined source of all knowledge and is the absolute guru untouched by time.
The Yoga Sutra goes on to instruct one how to achieve a relationship with God through meditation. This is not the entirety of how one has a relationship with God, but it is a major component of the One True Religion.
