Toxic Rainbows is a book I had no intention of writing, but it came out of necessity. It wrote itself after a few years of self-reflection and contemplation of how as a society we are to function spiritually in a world where spiritual transformation plateaus with a hollow meme or a proficiency at yoga.
I am a Generation X writer with the perspective of having experienced life pre- and post-internet. The remarkable experience for some of us was watching life unfold as a veil of delusion was constructed around us. We have the capacity for second sight because we can see the realities of two worlds, the truth and a manufactured delusion.
The delusion, often referred to as The Matrix, suffocated, obscured and redefined words and reality as we knew them. An ever creeping and pervasive artificiality and disconnection was my inspiration in seeking answers to life’s most enduring questions which led to my studying works of an esoteric nature, psychology, philosophy and religion.
Toxic Rainbows is based on my experience of growing up outside of a system we are now mired in, entering into it and finally extricating myself from it by understanding how I became a part of the system and how we had become enslaved by it.
Toxic Rainbows is a book about awareness and self discovery that offers revelations and sometimes unpleasant truth that pertains to everyone. It is a manual for escape and a guide for obtainng the joy and freedoms that are missing from so many of our lives. It’s an alternate route to a much better Oz, a place where true enlightenment can be obtained without fear of falling victim to the falseness that surrounds us or the trappings of the faux New Age.

I like to think that most people are genuinely caring individuals who strive for fairness and encourage love of their fellow man. Deep down, I think we all want that, but sometimes it drives us to imbalance. We start to see injustice wherever we look and choose not to see when things are actually going well for us. Our good intentions of ‘righting a wrong’ by becoming angry or emotional simply creates more of the negative vibration we seek to eliminate.
Everything Vibrates. Vibrational energy works in a two-fold way. It is put out and attracts more of a similar type energy (good or bad), it builds on the expended energy and returns to the source with more than it started out with. So if you put positive out, you get more in return. This holds true with whatever type of energy expressed by either your thoughts or actions.
I did a reading yesterday that exemplified this idea.
The Reading: When we become so blinded by doing what we think is ‘right’ that we go out of our way to hurt, silence or destroy the ability for others to express themselves, we are treading in a deeply delusional space.
We celebrate and feel a sense of victory when we are with like minded participants, but the victory will not be authentic until you walk with your perceived enemy. When that is done you will both have a better understanding and respect for one another that will transcend bitterness, anger and jealousy. If we avoid confronting issues that put our belief systems in jeopardy, we will be like the Fool who had his chance at spiritual growth, but ignored the opportunity and fell to his doom.
Our short lived victories will ring hollow and in the end we will see that our emotions and denial of nature have left us with nowhere left to go. We’ve reached a dead end that can only be transformed when we go back, understand the lunacy of our behavior, take the hand of our enemy and walk together.
