The Coming Golden Age of ITC, Part 2

The miraculous ITC contacts received by our INIT organization between 1995 and 2000 provide the basis for most of the information on this website.
If I had to boil down the content of this site into two primary themes, they would be:
- A reliable depiction of the afterlife, as late colleagues and loved ones shared their recollections of dying, awakening in a paradise world, and assuming new lives amid kindred spirits. (Read more…)
- A realistic (though mind-boggling) scenario of humanity’s ancient heritage, as ethereal beings following our world for millions of years shared startling insights into our distant past. (Read more…)
Most of this world-changing information was received by just one of our INIT receiving stations (Luxembourg) in the span of five years, so imagine what would happen if ITC receiving stations were set up all around the globe, sending information to our world, continually, from the other side.
- Science would enter a new age of enlightenment.
- Religion would enjoy a renaissance.
- Everyone would have a richer sense of our true nature.
- We would no longer view death as a dark, scary finality but a glorious sunrise… a welcome return to eternal life.
- Humanity would resonate to a finer vibration.
- Earth would be transformed.
That would have been the best-case scenario for INIT. Our connections would have branched out into a network of research organizations and ITC receiving stations in various parts of the world, and wisdom and knowledge would stream to our world from the finer realms of spirit.
So what went wrong?
The spread of ITC would have required harmonious attitudes among researchers. It would have involved collective enthusiasm, mutual support, trusting collaboration, free sharing of information… and we humans don’t seem ready for that.
How many resonant networks like that do you know? Seriously.
Today’s online social networks let people share personal interests, ideas, pictures, and friendship… but the same networks also spread bullying, intimidation, vicious gossip, and compromising photos that can ruin people’s lives. In short, our networks reflect the noble-savage nature of their human members.
INIT was nothing more than a network of human beings with a lofty calling.
It was the noble nature of our members that bound us together to experience some of the greatest miracles of the second epoch. Especially during the first two years (1995-96) we were filled with awe and inspiration by the other-worldly messages and images we were receiving from our spirit friends. We felt love and friendship toward each other. It seemed that we were on the threshold of one of the greatest events in human history.
Then, starting in 1997, it was our savage qualities that began to break us down and slowly tear us apart.
One member developed doubts about the legitimacy of certain contacts, which I and other members knew to be legitimate.
Another member insisted relentlessly that we needed scientific approval of our research, which I and other members knew to be improbable, given the incompatibilities of scientific and spiritual principles. (Read more about that incompatibility).
Another member was inclined to bullying and name-calling. At one meeting he spent several minutes loudly and furiously humiliating another, more sensitive member, as other members gaped or lowered their heads. On other occasions he would insult one member or another… sometimes directly, sometimes behind their backs. The slurs included:
- petulant little boy,
- liar, and
These petty assaults among members were rare, and each one seemed at the time like a tempest in a teapot… the normal residue of human weakness that was quickly cleaned up later, through correspondence, and forgotten.
But it’s these basic human weaknesses, our savage qualities, which tend to chip away at any group and to make it a monumental challenge for us humans to sustain the resonance needed to aspire toward finer spiritual pursuits.
Every time the discord unsettled our group, our spirit friends told us they had to go to great lengths on their side to protect and sustain the contact field, which began to lose its clarity and sharpness. Our spirit friends began to lose touch with us as our emotions darkened. On these occasions they said it was always important for us humans to lay our cards on the table… to be sincere and forthright with each other. Harboring ill will gave the contact field a cloudy texture that made ITC increasingly difficult… and when that happened, more troubled spirits were attracted to the chaos and would begin to influence our members.
So, one might wonder why our INIT group didn’t just remove those members who were the most disruptive. For one thing, we all saw mostly the noble qualities in each other. It’s not easy to turn away a friend. Also, one member or another was at the core of our group, such an integral part that without that member’s presence we all felt that the ITC contacts would end… which left us in a “catch-22” position.
My wife Regina has been mystical as long as I’ve known her, attending spiritual retreats and getting involved in meditation groups, Course in Miracles study groups, the Infinite Way (Joel Goldsmith), and other fine spiritual programs.
She observed my experiences with INIT with mixed feelings. On one hand she saw all the world-changing information we were receiving from the other side and knew its importance and spiritual integrity. On the other hand she observed the petty moments of in-fighting and their gut-ripping effect on me… and she wondered why such information of high spiritual content was coming to our group. Why not, say, to a group of devout priests or dedicated spiritual seekers who worked on sustaining harmony in the ranks?
Regina also wondered why I simply didn’t leave INIT, considering how I was affected by the troubled interactions. That was an easier question to answer: Any stresses and strains from human failings were a tiny price to pay for the world-changing potential of ITC. I believed that then, and I believe it today.
Don’t abandon a spiritual path because your noble-savage nature is in the way. Adjust your nature so it’s no longer in the way… and continue on the path.
That’s what I’ve been trying to do since the coming-apart of INIT around the year 2000… which I hope to write about in the next article.
