The Nature and Origin of Man--p1

What awaits us after our death?
This new body, is it physical?

image of a penny with 'In God We Trust' The nature of man, the origin of man, has always interested me since a young child. My suspicion now is that we are not and never was flesh and bones, corporeal, and not ever of a physical nature. Now that I'm 69, now that I'm approaching what can only be described as the end of
this life and the beginning of a new one (or perhaps a return to an older one), I'm beginning to wonder about the nature of man, especially to where I may be headed after this one ends.

The Astral body, as it's usually called, could be, and probably is that which the Bible refers to as a "new body" where man sheds his physical body, exchanging it for this new one. The fact that we're "caught up in the air" tells me that this is likely the case because when in the Astral body, we have the ability to fly through the air.

A few minutes ago I set out to find a suitable explanation as to what the Astral body is, but having found none, I decided to make the explanation myself. The Astral body is identical to our "physical" body. What makes it different is that it is non-corporeal by nature. Although it has an atomic structure, like our physical bodies, the density of the Astral body's physicality is much, much less than the body we occupy here in this reality.

In short, you and I actually occupy the Astral body, and the Astral body itself climbs into this physical body, much like we do when we get into our motor vehicle and ride around. In a word, our true nature is that of the Astral body, not the one we use in this reality. The complexity doesn't stop there, however. In truth, the Astral world, also called the spiritual world, is itself not our true habitation.

Well, after having had possibly hundreds of OBE's (Out of Body Experiences) over the first 45 years of my life, I've come to understand the process intimately well, although I may not understand every little detail of what's at play behind the scenes. But I know enough to understand that we, in this reality, know very little about any of this. I know this so much so that I've come to suspect that there is NO PHYSICALITY. The following is a photo of my personal journal, which may explain why I decided to write this blog post (click on the image to view an enlarged version):

Background

When I was a small child, I was intrigued by the mere idea that in the beginning was God and only God. Out of nothing God made something by merely speaking it into existence, and that is what I was told, kinda.

In John 1:1-5, this is what we're told (see photo below). We're told that 'in the beginning was the Word, that the Word was with God, and the Word was God.' And so, I can see where those who came and went before me concluded that 'in the beginning there was nothing but God.'

I was partially raised by a Methodist minister's family, the late Rev. R.C. Wells of Waco, Ohio. It was there at the parsonage that I asked Mrs. Wells many questions concerning God, why He chose to make us, where He came from, how He came to be in the first place, etc. My time with them began in 1955, at the age of five, to 1965, at the age of 15.

One of the things I asked Mrs. Wells, and most likely my own mom, was why God made us. I was told, and I'm not sure by whom, perhaps by both, that He was probably lonely because He was all by himself, and so He chose to make the angels as well as man.

Once I asked Rev. Wells who all those people were outside the Garden of Eden. I pointed to the passage that said, essentially, that Cane who slew Able was cast out of the garden, that a mark had been placed on his forehead so no one outside the garden would kill him. The preacher smiled and said that this is a question that the clergy has argued over for a very long time. He told me that some of the clergy believe that those outside the garden were Adam and Eve's children where others believe otherwise.

After considering this question a very long time, I chose to believe that if these were Adam and Eve's children, they would be in the garden along with their other children. I continue to believe this even now.

These questions were with me a very long time, even before I asked the Wells' about them. My own mother, Nova Jane Adkins Colombo, who went home to be with the Lord in 1995, told me prior to her death that at an early age, like two years old to four--for two years--I had her read two specific books of the Christian Bible to me--Genesis and Revelation.

One day, according to her, she asked me this question, "Why only these two books?" She said, "Do you remember what you told me?" I had no remembrance of what I may have said. She said, "You told me that you want to know where you came from and where you were going."

I'm not surprised. I've always known that I had a life before this one, that this is not the only place I've been. In a word, I've always known that this is not my home. As I said, I knew this from as far back as I can remember.

Conclusion

I suppose that this could be considered as the very beginning of a larger body of work. I've been holding off starting it, but now, I've had a sudden realization that I'm not getting any younger and that this must be written now, before I lose what faculties I may have left. The fact is, I'm still here, and in due time, I may not be. So there is no time like the present.

Wait on the Lord

A bit of inspiration in the midst of chaos and confusion.

image of a penny with 'In God We Trust' Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. -Psalm 27:14

Revealing the Hidden Things or Coming Out of the Closet

Even Plato knew the difference between
the "gods" and the "God" of all. 

image of a penny with 'In God We Trust'For a very long time I've played the game of life, working hard and doing all I could to be of help to those whom I love as well as to my friends, family, and even my fellow man in general.

I've been known to talk about UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects), alien abductions, the difference between that and a Contactee, and much more. Why am I willing to speak of this now? Because I'm officially retired, and although I continue to write for publications as well as perform services of various kinds for others--mostly in the electronic security and life safety markets, I'm no longer afraid to share these things with others.

Most of the time those whom I've discussed these matters with have written if off to insanity, and yet many of them have taken the time to read my technical work in the security field as well as political. My life long friends,  however, know what it's all about and they understand that insanity alone does not explain all the things I have spoken of. 

Today, I'd like to share with you what I have learned about Aum, also known as OM. The fact is, OM is a powerful force that permeates all of creation. I personally have called on OM many times, especially when I was building Alarm & Communications Company, my first alarm company in the 70s and 80s.

I honestly have been aware of OM all of my life, but in 1971, after a near brush with death (a NDE I might add), I was shown and trained as to where to look and how to to call upon its  power. In my next blog post I will share with you where to find OM and  how to "call" upon it's power.

In the meantime, please sit  for a spell and watch the following documentary on the gods. We'll talk about this movie somewhere ahead on this blog. --Al Colombo

I need your help, please pray with me


There are times throughout our lives when we get stuck in a loop and cannot seem to break the cycle. Recently I've watched my oldest grandson with great concern as he's become so ill that he lost nearly half of his body weight within a year's time. He lost his job, lost the house he was renting, lost most of what he owned because he was in no condition to move--it has been a horrible year for him.

As you can well imagine, his emotional state is certainly at an all time low. He has repeated his near-death visits to local area hospitals at least 10 times since April of 2016. True to my prediction, the time between these visits is becoming less and less all the time. I fear for his life, and that's a hard thing to live with for those who are forced to sit on the sidelines watching a loved one fall to pieces right in front of them.

 I'm writing this because I don't know what else to do. If I could trade places with him I'd gladly do it. I know who I am and what I am and I'm sure of one thing above all, if I were in his place, I'd most likely make it simply because I know that I can. I've weathered similar ailments and survived the ordeal. He is not confident that he can make it, and that alone is enough to hinder him from breaking the cycle he's in. Instead, he allows his emotions to get the better of him, and then he resorts to self medicating thoughts that are not beneficial on the long term. In other words, he's not following doctor's orders.

Why am I writing this, exposing my pain to the entire world?  I'm not sure.  Perhaps I'm hoping that you will join with me on behalf of my ill grandson by praying to God for his survival, both physical and spiritual. He's only in his early 20s, certain no age to fall  prey to an illness such as this.

All of this has taken me back to when he was a small child. I remember so many times when he and I shared really great moments. Since his father was a coward, refusing to take care of his own child (his concern was for  his money and his marriage, not his son), the duty of raising him fell on others around  him. Yes, he had a step father, but unfortunately that experience was not a good one considering his step father's anger issues.

When he was real little, every time we'd pass an ATV or motorcycle, he would tell me that one day he'll be riding one of them. Well, he was right. The first one I bought for him was a three-wheel ATV. He learned how to do things with it that is not safe for  man nor beast. I bought him a four-wheel ATV, and he took to it like a duck takes to water. His middle name should have been "No-Fear."

I remember holding him when he cried over a skinned knee, a bully in the neighborhood who had chased him  home, and when he was sick. I always made it better one way or another, until now.  Now, I'm  unable to assist him for a variety of reasons, most of which involves him.

This is a good young man, a caring young man, a once proud young man concerning his many accomplishments. When he was barely out of high school he made a hydrogen fuel cell. His mechanical skills and his ability to troubleshoot and to fix broken things is next to none.

Please pray for my grandson. God knows his name. Just ask Him to heal Al's grandson and He'll know exactly who you are talking about.  Please share this blog post with others and ask them to pray as well.

Thank you!

Al
