Is It God’s Fault?  Why Are We Here?

By Dr. Dave DiSano


I recently attended a spiritual cinema night at a spiritualist church we attend occasionally. The film was Ram Dass: Fierce Grace that was an excellent biography of Ram Dass’s life.  For those of you that are not that familiar with Ram Dass, he is a spiritual teacher and author who was born Richard Alpert (April 6, 1931). His 1971 book Be Here Now was instrumental in bringing the teachings of the far East to the US in the 1970’s.  He is known for his personal and professional associations with Timothy Leary at Harvard University in the early 1960s, for his travels to India and his relationship with the Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba, and for founding the charitable organizations Seva Foundation and Hanuman Foundation. However, he had a stroke in 1997 and since that time he moved to Maui and although he continues to write and teach he rarely leaves the island. He stated in the film that his stroke was a test of his spirituality.

I would like to state that I hold Ram Dass in the highest esteem for what he has accomplished in his writings and teachings.  However, I was extremely disappointed in the film when he was counseling a young lady who was going through a difficult time.  She was questioning why God let this tragedy happen to her?  Ram was asking her guiding questions (like a proper psychologist should) eventually letting her come to the conclusion that we will never know “God’s will!”  Typical advise a priest, rabbi or minister might give. That God is all knowing, and only he knows why bad things happen to good people. Not the advice I believe a spiritual guru would give, or lead someone to.

In my experience, Spirituality believes that our souls are eternal, that when we die we transition to the spirit dimension, and at that time we are able to review our life learning why in fact, we have had challenges along the way. What we learn is that those challenges are placed in our life by us, not God!  The reason we come back to the Earth dimension is to learn and grow our souls through our life experiences.  We are in charge of our own spiritual evolution through our free will.  Before we come into this life we place certain challenges in our life so we might grow our souls by dealing with, or overcoming those challenges. Someone who dies of alcoholism, a drug overdose, or even suicide will come into their next life with the same challenges in their life with the intent not to make the same mistakes.

It is very easy to “blame” an “all knowing God” for our misfortunes in life, rather than believing it is our own design.  The first distances us from a spiritual connection, the later brings us into acceptance of life’s challenges!  In the film, Ram Dass may have been acting like a good psychologist, but he was a very bad spiritual guru!




My Journey

By Mary DiSano


           When reflecting about my healing and spiritual journey over the past few years I now know that I didn’t “find” my journey it found me!  As I stated in the preface of my book, at seminars all over the country, and on national radio and TV shows it was not one I was looking for. Being a public speaker, writing a book, being a healer, or having a mission to change people’s minds on mental illness couldn’t be a further thought from my mind.  All I wanted was to feel better and have a “normal” life.  But like so many that are pulled into a fire in life, I realize now that everything happens for a reason. As the late Robert Schuller states, “It didn’t come to break you. It came to make you!”

My “journey” began when doctors couldn’t find any cures for my physical ailments. Sure they had some “explanations” like maybe it’s a virus or it’s this or that, or, you’re psychotic! So as others have done when not getting any answers, I went on my own quest to cure myself. At first it seemed like one coincident after another of how I was led to different healers. As if I started out crawling (out of a dark and scary cave) then learned to walk, and now I am running in the light!

My journey led me to healers from around the world, shamans and light-workers as I began learning about things I never even imagined. How these ancient healing methods have been curing people since the beginnings of civilization.  How psychics can connect to the spirit dimension and give me answers of what is happening.  I entered the New Age and Metaphysical world. A world I had no knowledge of, or didn’t give a second thought about, or even believed that any of it was real before my journey began!

Sure I may have seen movies like Ghost, or the Ghost Whisperer on TV where people were being affected by the spirit dimension or they were talking to psychics. But like most, I just thought of it as entertainment, it’s Hollywood, it’s not real. Dr. Dave makes a point in our seminars that phenomenon like this is a lot like UFO’s, unless you have seen one, it may be hard to believe in them.  This is how I felt about guardian angels, entity possession or psychics. I didn’t believe in any of it because I had no experience with it.  But all that changed on my healing journey!

When a light-worker began working on me and I felt better, when I was led to shamans and I began to feel better, when psychics started telling me things about my life that they could not have possibly have known, I began to become a believer. This was my walking, because I now started my research into New Age and Metaphysics. I became an avid reader. And one book led to another, just as one healer and one psychic led me to another.

I realize there were no coincidents in my life. It was all happening for a reason.  Just like meeting Dr. Dave when my journey started, it all happened for a divine reason, in God’s perfect timing. Dr. Dave is a psychologist that started out in science education. So when he investigates things he does so with research and data.  So when shamans and light-workers began healing me and when psychics were telling me what was going on, and that I had amazing healing abilities myself, and why I was being attacked by the spirit dimension because they were drawn to my “light,” Dr. Dave began his own investigations as to whether this was real or just “in my head!”

What we both discovered was that it is in fact real!  We can be negatively affected (both physically and mentally) by negative entities, also known throughout history as entity possession. Psychics can tap into energy waves and connect to past or future events. And, consciousness can exist outside the body. I discovered this through firsthand experiences with healers and psychics, and through the 200 New Age books I’ve had read the past 5 years. Dr. Dave discovered this by verifying what had happened to me was real by connecting New Age, Metaphysics, historical data and quantum physics to the psychic phenomenon I experienced. His research proves that consciousness can exist outside the body.

My journey today is not one I had planned (at least that’s what I thought) but one that I now believe is divine.  If I can help one person understand what they are going through, that they are not crazy, that they can be healed physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually in non-traditional ways, then all I went through was worth it. There are forces out there that are causing people to be sick that doctors have no clue on how to deal with.  I now realize that I was led through all that I have been through to change people’s minds on physical and mental illness causes, and help them get help when traditional medicine can’t.  And, so far my guardian angels have told me that I have helped thousands!
