A New Covenant with Nature – Notes on the End of Civilization and the Renewal of Culture

227 Pages | First Quest Edition 1996 | Hardcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607461.
  • Has modern civilization really improved human lives?
  • Is money evil?
  • Is government necessary?
  • What can we each do to renew our connection with all that is wild, and generative, and free?

In this radical and thought-provoking book, ecophilosopher Richard Heinberg explores these questions with wit, perception, and refreshing insight. Each culture, Heinberg shows, makes a covenant or agreement with nature. Our culture’s agreement is obviously crumbling. If we are to create a new covenant, we must begin by rethinking the givens of society from the ground up – or even, quietly desert the existing social system and help birth a better one.

From Part III – ‘The Great Purification’ (p. 163):

” To speak of wilderness is to speak of wholeness. Human beings came out of that wholeness, and to consider the possibility of reactivating membership in the Assembly of All Beings is in no way regressive. “ – Gary Snyder.

Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides, and Ghosts: How to Talk with and Photograph Beings in Other Realms

By Atala Dorothy Toy.

227 Pages | First Quest Edition 2012, incl photographs| Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835609029.

Faeries, angels, ghosts, orbs and spirit of place are some of the real life forms, who exist in distinct worlds, that interrelate with our human realm. We share the universe with a wide variety of life forms. Most of these life forms share similar motivations: the need to survive, thrive, prosper, protect themselves, assist others, grow in self-awareness, and learn to exist as solitary units and in cooperation with others, These life forms have a wide variety of motivations and behaviour patterns within their worlds – also just like us.

The book covers a fairly broad range of occurrences, for the stories are drawn not only from the author’s experiences, but from those of clients, who have come to her for help. Some of the stories in this book include photographs of the life forms involved.

Atala Dorothy Toy, workshop leader, subtle energy consultant, and nature-spirit photographer, is the founding president of Crystal Life Technology, Inc., a company providing subtle-energy products to the public. She is also author of We Are Not Alone: A Complete Guide to Interdimensional Cooperation.

From Chapter 4 – ‘Rock, Tree and Faery Spirits’ (p. 205):

” The Green Faery is a nature spirit energy; sometimes called a deva and sometimes and earth angel, who exists throughout the earth consciousness. She is mother-like energy, who enlists cooperation from all within her domain or family – the earth as a whole – much like an archangel such as Michael. Both can appear wherever needed and called upon. Each has the ability to consciously contact humans they wish to interact with, inform and inspire. The Green Faery chose to reveal herself to me after I had been consciously working to demonstrate the aliveness of nature from some nine years. Since the first time she often manifests in photographs when I am in the ‘zone’ and really tune with the nature energies around me. “

Additional DescriptionMore Details

With substantive clarity, she explains time travel, portals, dowsing, negative and positive vortexes, balls of energy known as merkabahs, ley lines, and orbs-the plasma of some life form visible to human eyes or to cameras, many of which are nature spirits who enjoy being around happy energy and so are often seen at parties and spiritual gatherings.

“A fascinating, heartfelt, and extremely convincing account of spiritual domains, and the beings that inhabit them, that have for far too long been ignored or discounted by the modern world.”—Ptolemy Tompkins, author of Paradise Fever, The Divine Life of Animals and The Modern Book of the Dead A professional interdimensional communicator, Atala is up to the minute in her understanding of the emerging field of spiritual sciences and the correlations between modern physics and ancient metaphysical traditions that perceive the oneness of all nature. We all communicate interdimensionally every day, she says. We just don’t know it, and so we lose out on the many ways to receive help from the other life forms who share our space. Drawing on her own and her clients’ experiences, she teaches through colorful stories and her own powerful photographs. Titles include “The Ghost Who Washed Dishes,” “The Haunted Hotel,” “The Guardian of the Spring,” “The Horse Who Knew More Than His Owners,” “The Jilted House,” “The Stranded Gnome,” “The Moss Faery,” “The Owl on Turtle Island,” and “The Balsam Who Loved the Birch.” She also includes lessons explaining the energetic principles of the situation; simple exercises for mastering the principle contained in the story; and tips for photographing other life forms using technology available to anyone, such as digital or even cell phone cameras. By entering the fascinating realm of this book, the reader will join the growing number of people aware of subtle energy and able to see through the veils between dimensions. Not only is this possibility personally enriching, it serves a broader purpose as well. Needless to say, the planet and everything on it is at a critical juncture. In damaging the earth, we have damaged the nature beings’ home as well. It is therefore strongly in their interest to assist us in transforming the earth into something better. This book shows us how to learn from and enjoy them in a most delightful way. Atala Dorothy Toy is an author, workshop leader, subtle energy consultant, nature spirit photographer, and the founding president of Crystal Life Technology, Inc – a company that provides subtle energy products and information to the public.

A Divine Vision of Man, Nature and God

By Curuppumullage Jinarājadāsa (1875–1953).

76 Pages | First Edition 1928, 1st – 3rd reprints 1949-1954, second edition 1986 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170590329.

These three Lectures were delivered by the Author at the Queen’s Hall London in May 1927, and formerly published  under the title ‘The Divine Vision’.

It is a true saying, and one experienced and proved by us all, that we rise to higher things on the stepping stones of our dead selves. The life of man is a continual change of vision; as experiences come to him one after another, it is as if he rose from one level to another as he climbs up a mountain side, and therefore his visions steadily changes.

We recognise that there are two kinds of vision possible for us, that of the ordinary man of the world, and that other vision, which is presented to us by the great leaders of humanity, the founders of the religions. But we are apt to imagine that that lofty vision of the great teachers is something reserved for them alone, that we men in these lower levels are not capable of a divine vision. Yet the whole purpose of the message of Theosophy is to show that what the greatest of mankind has achieved shall some day be the achievement of every human being. In the course of these three Lectures, I shall try to show there is possible for us a divine vision of man, of nature and of God.

From Page 26:

” The student of Nature wonders the more and is astonished the less, the more conversant he becomes with her operations; but of all the perennial miracles she offers to his inspection, perhaps the most worthy of admiration, is the development of a plant or of an animal from its embryo. Examine the recently laid egg of some common animal, such as the salamander or a newt. It is a minute spheriod in which the best microscope will reveal nothing but a structureless sac, enclosing a glairy fluid holding granules in suspension. But strange possibilities lie dormant in that semi-fluid globe. Let a moderate amount of warmth reach its watery cradle, and the plastic matter undergoes changes so rapid and yet so steady and purposelike in their succession, that one can only compare them to those operated by a skilled modeller upon a formless lump of clay. As with an invisible trowel, the mass is divided and sub-divided into smaller and smaller proportions until it is reduced to an aggregation of granules not too large to build withal the finest fabrics of the nascent organism. And, then, it is as if a delicate finger traced out the line to be occupied by the spinal column, and moulded the contour of the body, pinching up the head at one end, the tail at the other, and fashioning flank and limb into due salamandrine proportions in so artistic a way that, after watching the process hour by hour, one is almost involuntarily possessed by the notion that some more subtle aid to vision than an achromatic microscope would show the hidden artist, with his plan before him, striving with skilful manipulation to perfect his work. ” – Lay Sermons, Chapter – ‘The Origin of Species’.

Freedom through the Balisier (A Quest Miniature)

By Cyril H. Boynes.

113 Pages | First edition 1984 – A Quest Miniature | Softcover| Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605841.

‘I go to prepare a place for you… that where I AM, there you may be also…’

The colorful balisier is indigenous to Trinidad. The fiery plant has taken on deep mystical overtones for many of the natives, because of its unusual characteristics. It represents a symbol of life’s conflicts and eventual victory over our temporal nature. It might be said, it represents eternity itself, because of its almost indestructable nature. Because of the snake, that makes the balisier its home, it represents the dangers we encounter in our search for Truth. All this and more is brought to light in this Quest Miniature booklet. A native of Trinidad, points to many symbolic correspondences between the balisier and Christianity in an ecumenical sense.

From Chapter 3 – ‘A Symbol for a full Heart (p. 31 & 32):

” I decided to take Emerson’s concept splitting a word and watching it bleed to study this silence that flows into our stilled Souls. So I broke the word ‘silence’ and watched it bleed:

S = See | I = Into | L = Life | E = Every | N = New | C = Creative | E = Experience.

That means to me that in silence we can look at life in a new way and see in every experience a newly created thing flowing out from God. Seeing this new creation, our hearts, which are the dwelling place of God, can both appreciate and participate in the creation of new experiences. This is what our natural Self yearns to do. “
