An Ancient view of our Future Reality

“I see the Cosmos as a divine mathematical process of every conceivable complex combination of the simplest interacting components of spiritual energy… From the smallest single Unit to the totality of a single Universe, we are re-learning that everything is extricably linked to everything else, through subtle moving patterns of fundamental forces within a matrix of light, which reveal the evolving higher dimensional truth of ourselves.” ~ RvO
