    Excerpt from the Book

    I am a product of adversity. I lost my father when I was one year old and
    grew up as the son of a persecuted widow on the daily assassination list of
    her in-laws. This brought the Ceylon Pentecostal people to our assistance. I
    realized that they lived by faith. That meant, without asking anybody or telling
    anyone about their needs, their needs were being met. I thought it was all a lie
    and impossible in actual life. So, I went and lived with them and found that
    they were telling the truth. I met my own needs during a three month period,
    my needs to go and come back. In the beginning, it was all religion but after
    a few years, I realized that religion had nothing to do with it. It was mind that
    created events suitable to our constant thinking, desire, and expectation. Later
    on, it becomes subconscious mind. That means even when we are not
    thinking, it happens.

    I realized mind is an infinitesimal part of God, which has all the powers God
    has and this part is in us for our use. Just like those who have money in the
    bank can use it for their needs only if they know it is there, only those who
    know it is within us can use this God-given power.

    The essay on Blessings of Adversity was very interesting.
    All interesting. I just looked at your essay on The Purpose
    of Creation and very well done, too.

    Andrei Kozhev

    I have accidentally come across your Ultimate Knowledge
    excerpt at and wanted to take this
    occasion to express my profound respect for the creator of
    this beautiful piece. I find your application of mathematic
    logic and scientific reason in establishing morphic
    resonance and between gravity and love fascinatingly
    brilliant. Moreover, you are able to impart to the reader a
    liberating sense of affinity with everything that is, ever has
    been and ever will be.
