The following aphorism has been ever-present in my thinking over that past 45 years and I share it with you now with the sincere wish that it serve you as well as it has served me on this mysterious journey into Self. It is from Dr. John C. Lilly and I was first introduced to it through his 1972 book The Center of the Cyclone. I refer to it as the “explorer’s credo” because it condenses into one simple statement, most everything one needs to know about the nature of believing, and the transcendence of those beliefs — exactly what The Lightning Path is all about.


In the province of the mind, what is believed to be true Is true or becomes true, within limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the mind there are no limits.

In peace,
