ENLIGHTENMENT COMES WHEN YOU DECIDE TO BE ENLIGHTENED
Namaste Free Spirits,
I trust that all is
well with you and you are manifesting all that you desire. Where did summer
go? How fast the seasons come and go. Of the four seasons that we experience
in Canada--summer seems to be the shortest of all. I am on vacation and have
chosen to stay home and finish off my next book. I am locked away in my
office at home, so I have to discipline myself to do something outside each
day or I'll be asking myself what happened to summer, again.
***I am really pleased
with the way the sales of my new book are going, and your responses have
been more than generous. I am sure that there are some that are not as
enthusiastic about it as most. I would like to hear from them as well. My
next book is nearing completion and I have only just begun marketing the
first one. "Your Life Was Never Meant To Be A Struggle is now available in
Hard Cover. It's new ISBN # is 1-4122-7752-4. The book is now listed at
Chapters/Indigo, Borders.com, Amazon.com and others. I have learned that it
is a two to three year project and can take weeks or months to be listed or
available in most major book stores. If you can't find it at your favourite
book store you can order it directly from the publisher at
***I just finished
Neale Donald Walsch's new book "Home With God." Of course I am one of his
biggest fans and have read and re-read his books many times. A lot of my
writing comes from the enlightenment I have gained from reading his books.
If you want to understand what you are going to go through when you die, I
encourage you to read this book--it's great!
***I am pleased to
announce that my home site "Spiritual
New Age Wisdom" is now available in eight different languages. I have
installed new translation software that converts the entire site into your
language of choice. I am still tweaking it, so some things may not be 100%
***I mentioned in the
above that I am trying to finish my new book "Lead Down The Garden Path" by
the end of the year. I really like this book, the writing is more mature
than some of my earlier works and reflects my own personal spiritual growth
and awareness. I will keep you informed of its progress.
***I would like to
draw your attention to a new site! Have you ever seen those handcrafted
wooden books. Well here is you chance to see several. My friend Gypsy has a
wonderful collection. Please visit the site at
these wooden books would make excellent gifts for those people who have
everything. And Heh--Christmas is coming.

WOULD YOU KNOW GOD IF YOU SAW HIM?
It has never
been God's intention for you to know him. That would not serve his purpose.
If I walked up to you on the street and told you I was God, would
you know me as God? And if I created miracles and demonstrated great power
would you then know me as God? The answer of course is a resounding "NO."
Your mind would not be able to accept me as God, and as much as you
may want to believe that I am-your ego would not allow you to even believe.
The ego always wants proof and cannot except the obvious and why
would God want to prove anything to you anyway. If you knew God, you would
be God and that is exactly what you are-you are God, God is in and around
everything-he is omnipresent! And yet, you do not believe. You already have
the power to perform great miracles and do wonderful things. You already
have done these things many, many times and you still do not believe.
You cannot know God because there is no God out "there" that is
God. God is made manifest in human form for the purpose of God to experience
all aspects of physical life. It is not God's intention for you to act as
God, but to act as God being human.
God is everything that you see, smell, touch, taste and hear. He is
the one you look at in the mirror each morning and the one you meet in the
street. You are as the wave is to the ocean, you have all the
characteristics and attributes of the ocean, you are the ocean divided into
limitless pieces of itself. You are the ocean in "wave" form.
You have the power to move mountains and create universes and yet
you do not for one reason only-"you do not know that you can!"
Because you do not know that you are God, you do not use the power
of God. You gave away your power before birth, so that you could experience
being powerless. Although that power is always there, always at your beck
and call-you just don't know it.
Because you do not know yourself as God, you cannot see God in
others. You cannot know God because he is too close to you, as the forest is
to the trees. You look past God every moment of every day trying to find
him, and you deny what you already instinctively know-that it is God doing
If I came to you and told you that I am God, you would deny me. You
have no other choice, in fact you would demand proof, and you would even try
to kill me to proof your disbelief. And once you did kill me, you still
would not know me as God and you would not be convinced, yet I cannot be
killed. Do you really believe that I would present myself to you in a single
body that looks like you? I would still not be God, because I am
omnipresent, you would only see me as an illusion, a preconceived image of
who you think I am.
To know me-you must know that you are me. And to know that-you must
let go of the notion that your body exists. And that is next to impossible
for most minds. The only possible way that you could know me, is to know and
accept that I am everything. All that you see, even the illusion of self-is
me! Every time you use the word God-you distance me! You create a dualistic
reality that is not real. I am not out there-I am where you are. You cannot
properly know me when you talk about God, because using the word creates
time and space and an image that is separated from you.
You can know me when you say "I Am." You can feel me when you say
"I Am." Just using those words fills you with the power of "I Am" and a
sense of well being and purpose. Try it now, say "I Am." What is it that you
feel, when you let go of ego. "I Am" is the only declaration of life-it is
what life says. I am here, I am there, I am Roy, I am this or that, and I am
anything that I say "I am."
If you meet me on the street and I tell you I am God-would you know
me? Of course not, you could not, because I am not only one "thing"-I am
every "thing." I am everything that "is" and "is not."
If you want a glimpse into being God, have a look at the one that
is looking at you-when you are able to get to that level of
understanding-you will be one step closer to knowing God. And you will never
look at me the same way again.
I you want to know God-then be God-it is within your power to be
all that I am. Because I am you, and you are me, when you deny me-you deny
your very existence-we are inseparable. For those of you who do not like the
term "God," substitute it for the word "life" or anything you desire. "Life"
is everywhere-all things are "life" manifesting in physical form. I am
"life" looking at "life."
If you know me as "life" you will then know me as the creator. I
cannot be offended by anything that you call me, because I am everything and
There is a Buddhist saying: "If you see the Buddha in the streets,
run from him for he is a false Buddha." The creator does not appear in a
single form. Nor would it be in any form, because I am formless-that is why
I work through you to experience form.
Whatever you think of yourself-is what you think of me. When you
condemn yourself, you are condemning that which gives you the illusion of
life. When you kill yourself or another, you are trying to kill me, and it
is not possible. When you disrespect yourself or another, you are showing
disrespect for me, because you and the other are me.
When you move your focus away from these petty physical nuances you
move to higher power and awareness, because you then become focused on them.
Knowing that you are God, does not move you away from being human. It simply
brings you to a new awareness that makes your life easier and more
rewarding. When you understand why you are making the trip, you will begin
to enjoy it, knowing you can change any aspect of it at will.
You are in a box in a great box factory. When you are ready to move
out of your box, there will be countless other boxes you can choose to move
into. But you will never be physically anything more than you are now. Every
life-time is an opportunity; every box is an experience until you no longer
wish to experience it. You have the ability to rise above the box factory
and watch yourself moving in and out of these little boxes. That is the joy
of awareness and acceptance of what you really are. That is the exquisite
joy of being the creator, and is why I created this illusion, so that I
could experience myself being myself.
I am no greater or less than you are, and you have the same
abilities. Look into the face of the next person you meet, and you will see
me. And if there is no one near-follow the flight of the birds and you will
see me. Everywhere you see life and non-life you will see me.
Life does not pass you by-you pass life by. God does not forsake
you-you forsake God. The creator is all that you are and more, and yet you
are no less than the creator.
If I told you that I am God, would you know me?

Roy's Quotable Quotes
(You are free to use these quotes anytime)
"When you say no to life, life says no to you!"
Roy E. Klienwachter
In Hard Cover and Paperback
life was never meant to be a struggle—somewhere along the way you
lost sight of that fact.
This earth is not a
school, and you were not put here to learn anything. In fact, you
were not put here at all—you chose to come freely to the physical
earth, and experience life in a way that could not be experienced
You were given abundance,
and freedom of choice, to create anything you desired without fear
What you are witnessing
now is unconditional love or freedom to mess up your life as many
times as you desire. The creator does not care what we do—but that
we do it. Life must be expressed in all its possibilities,
unconditionally, or it is not love.
You have such awesome
power within you to change the way you are living, and the only
things standing in the way are your own thoughts.
You have all the
attributes and characteristics of the creator—you just don’t know
Be one of the FIRST to get this truly
inspiring book. Over 284 pages of pure life saving wisdom. This book
is destined to be a BEST SELLER!
When I first began Roy's book I
was a bit of a skeptic. Entrenched in long-standing mores, I
believed that "life is real, life is ernest and the grave is not its
goal." His formulas for a better life were too simplistic -until I
started to put them into practice. Now, I'm a true believer, and
realize that, you can be better than you are, and "Your Life Was
Never Meant to be a Struggle."
