My trips to India started off as a personal diary for my wife. I had no thoughts of trying to publish it because my experiences there were about the opposite of what most people think in the UK.
The goddess had other ideas. She always sends me quiet internal messages about what she wants me to do each day. In March 2014 it was to have the book of these three trips published. I thought that no publisher would believe it, so I thought about self-publishing with a firm in the USA . However, being a messenger I always follow what she wants and over-rule my own ideas on the subject.
The goddess followed up by making the Kindle publishing site appear upon my screen so I responded by sending a letter to the publisher. One month went by followed by two further weeks. This seemed ample confirmation that I was right- no editor in his right mind would believe it! Thus I contacted a firm in the USA and signed a contract to have it published there.
About two weeks later an email arrived from Kindle saying that they had only just received my letter, which had taken two months to get there. The publisher, was surprisingly interested to read it and said would I sent a copy as soon as possible. He said there were a lot of readers interested in self -development and the meaning of life and this sounded right up their street.
A few days later he sent another email saying that he only had time for a quick scan and his first impression was that it seems most improbable. However- to be fair- he would let his expert reader read it then he would read if properly himself, before making a decision. I had thoughts about telling him that it wasn’t made up and that I had witnesses that would vouch for its authenticity. Another of the goddess’s mental emails arrived to tell me’ not to interfere and just let things be.’
On week later an email accompanied by a glowing critique arrived, plus a congratulation and a contract to sign. This was wonderful of course but I was still under contract to have it published in the USA . Fortunately a sticking point arose over illustrations- and I was able to wangle my way out of the contract.
This left Kindle free to go ahead. The book was nearing publication but late in August I received an apology from Kindle saying somehow every trace of my book had been wiped from their system even though multiple copies of it had been saved . They told me that they had published thousands of books and had no idea of how it had happened. I told then not to worry and would do some rewriting and get it back to them as soon as possible.
Obviously I was keen to get started, when another message from the goddess came, telling me to leave that and give priority to something more important. She wanted me to write a forward on behalf of the devatas extolling the virtues of Transcendental Meditation and its ability to effortlessly harness the Turiya state- what Maharishi calls Transcendental Consciousness...
What she wanted me to write was that the experiences I have had are open to everybody.
All human beings have the same nervous system. It is just a matter of refining it. She also wanted a postscript written in a similar vein..
She is quite amazing. She had obviously wiped ‘A Trip Beyond Imagination’ off the Kindle system because that was the easiest way to make amendments at so late a date.
