Physics tells us that the speed of light is a constant, and nothing can
travel faster than that. Yet, from my practice, I now know that everything
is contained within me. Are the laws of physics going to have be rewritten
as our instant access to the cosmic regions via inner awakening becomes
widely known? Like a hologram, I am both the part and the whole at the same
