My name is David Tate. I had my very first conversation with Elias on July 3,1997 (session #189). Little did I know that the conversation that day would lead me on a journey of self-discovery a journey unlike any I could have possibly imagined.
We all are searching for the “truth.” Some of us have found it in religion, others in science. It doesn’t really matter how or where you find your truth, but when you do, it’s like discovering a language that speaks to you in such a way that it is as if you have found “home.” What I was hearing in Elias’ words was my very own language that somehow, and for whatever reason, I had forgotten. I found my truth, my home. My next challenge however, was to remember all that I have forgotten. Within that process, I am now coming face to face with who I really am.
From as far back as I can recall, I had always felt that there was something not quite right with the picture of my reality. Like us all, we're born into a world where from the moment of birth we are bombarded with the belief systems of our parents and all of society's, the belief systems which hold together the very reality in which we all struggle to function and operate. However, I began to question those inherited beliefs that were presented to me as truths that were set in stone, unchangeable and invincible. It was in my questioning that I had set in motion the starting point of a journey, a journey that would take me on a ride of my very own treasure hunt. Hidden along the way I discovered puzzle pieces that seemed to fit into places within my life's picture, whereas before there hadn't appeared to be any place for them. My reality, my canvas of life, I was discovering, was in fact not complete at all and the biggest and final puzzle pieces that I had yet to find was to be found within the information of the Elias material.
To date, the information offered by Elias covers every topic imaginable. I have attempted in this first book, therefore, to offer the reader a condensed version of some of the topics that Elias has spoken about – questions asked and answers given – that pertain to experiences in our everyday lives. Topics that inspire us to ask, “Who am I? What about God? What is our purpose? Why is there so much suffering?” and much more.
Elias has introduced many ideas and concepts since he first began speaking to us. Some of these are perennial – they have been around for millennia – and some are quite innovative, or what Elias calls “boat-rocking.” Some may be acceptable to you, others may be more challenging.
The information that Elias delivers shines a brilliant light onto these age-old questions that have previously been answered by others we call “teachers of enlightenment.” Elias, therefore, offers us more of what we already know.
For now, within the action of this shift in consciousness, the veils that have been separating us from the full knowledge of ourselves are beginning to thin, allowing us to remember all that we truly are.
