Interview with an Oracle, Profound Revelations about Our World

If you’re concerned about the current state of the world, the political turmoil in our country, the future of our country, and the future of Western civilization, this book is an important read.
On an extended trek into the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on an extraordinary opportunity. A series of adventures led him to an ancient Oracle Temple in the highlands of Tibet where he encountered a true shamanistic Oracle from the esoteric B’on wisdom tradition. The author’s discussions with the Oracle covered a wide range of subjects, revealing a series of profound insights.
A brief excerpt of the Oracle’s comments regarding our present civilization: “The life of a government springs from the life of its people, the life of the people from the life of their mind, hence the life of their mind determines the future of their land. This future is found only in freedom—from deception, from destruction, from the false—life is found in freedom to recognize and express the true. Among your Founders were enlightened ones; your form of government was designed and implemented to assure individual freedom and nurture individual spirituality and creativity. It has undergone an immense swing to the opposite pole; it now assures nothing but mass order at any cost and nurtures nothing but the imposition of mass materiality and mass productivity. Freedom is gone, replaced by economic seeking and monetary accumulation. Yet this materiality is utterly and absolutely false. The resulting emptiness of life and alteration, depletion and destruction of the earth telegraph this with alarming clarity.
“In your country what was once a government of reason and law has been replaced by a tyranny of men. The sovereignty of the people has become a sovereignty of manipulators, politicians as conscious agents of a great deception, the power of which dements even more than it corrupts. Your society is divided into a tiny group of men who choose and decide, a small number of others who know far less and decide nothing yet wield power in conformity with the hidden policies—those who gather in your congress to go through the motions of democracy’s ghost—and the masses, compelled to act and live in total incomprehension of the manipulation of their movements, and so their lives.” Author’s note: “As the Oracle expressed this, there was no trace of mocking or bitterness in his voice, only a certain weariness, a calm acceptance of what is.”
An extraordinary account that is compelling, thought provoking, and richly enlightening, this book will impact you and linger in your thoughts long after the last words have been read. Includes an important chapter on the history of government through its various forms and outcomes. 2020 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 296 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. Includes Reference Citations and Source Material. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Ledalina

Ledalina is the reconstructed text of a late nineteenth-century journal, written by an unnamed Dutch scholar, telling of dark and mysterious events that allegedly occurred in Durban just before the turn of the century, parts of which are as upsetting as they seem unusual for the period.

This fascinating journal has been translated to English and made available to the public for the first time since its discovery.

“But what is even more consuming than my fear, is my curiosity. I am still in the possession of Ms Ledalina’s letter, and the only way forward and the only way to ease my mind is to at least solve as much of this mystery as I can from my present position.”

Meet Anna Faversham

I have lived most of my life in Kent, England but I’ve also lived in New Zealand and central Africa. Both had a lasting influence. Africa dragged my love of writing to the surface. Living some forty miles from the nearest tarmac road and seventy from anything pretending to be a bookshop, I soon ran out of bedtime stories for the children. Scribbling began.

On returning to England, fiction had to take a back seat as real life took over, you know the sort of thing – a proper job to keep feeding the mortgage and the growing family, and chores and more chores. But a love of writing finally erupted into regular tap-tapping. I’ve written and read for the BBC and published short stories and five novels.
