StarWarrior cover

“Starwarrior” is the second book in the “Starbrow” series from Danish-American author Tim Ray. It is exactly what it says that it is … a spiritual thriller. In this series, Ray is seeking to connect the reader with his personal understanding of ancient spiritual wisdom and principles.  I would like to note here that the foundation of this series is on spirituality in general, and that it does not reflect a specific religion or belief.

I appreciate Dan Brown’s work, and find that Ray’s work shows the same care and research. The overall story is about an ancient prophecy concerning the movement of earth, and earth’s inhabitants, into the fifth dimension. We left off in book one (Starbrow), with the feeling that the three compatriots were going to have some down time. Not going to happen!

There is a CIA agent on a global manhunt, with the mission of stopping whatever is supposed to happen with the earth’s power spots. How did he know about this? A message was sent from the higher dimension through … a television channel! There are golden pyramids floating above all of the major cities of the world … until the power grid that has been activated is literally blown up!

The world is in chaos, the golden pyramids can no longer be seen, and there is a very short time in which Starbrow and his compatriots must raise the consciousness of the world. The three compatriots are coming into their own power, and their own understanding of the ancient prophecy.

Two of them appear to have been killed in the demolition of Glastonbury Tor, and Starbrow is taken into custody by the CIA agent and his men. Each of these individuals is struggling to become a Spiritual Warrior, and to apply the spiritual teachings of the Masters under their current circumstances.

This is an exciting, intense book on many levels. It is a delightful mystery, with in-depth characters and story-line. It presents spiritual concepts in a manner in which the reader can understand them, and apply them to their own life. It makes use of existing theories/concepts/physical places to create a plausible scenario for the reader. It is fast paced, and both serious and funny (or perhaps seriously funny!).

My wish is that the series will continue. I had a tremendously good time reading this book, and would like to see more of the same!

Review – Starbrow

Starbrow –
A Spiritual Adventure

Author: Tim Ray
Findhorn Press
2003
ISBN #1-84409=003-5

Starbrow cover
This is indeed a highly spiritual story, one that takes three young men in Copenhagen, Denmark, on a serious adventure through time and space. It starts out with a golden light on a dark night, a light surrounding a beautiful  woman who informs one of our heroes that his name is Starbrow, and that he has a mission. What does he do? He runs away! Well, who wouldn’t.

Our young hero, and two of his Dungeons and Dragons playing friends are about to go on the journey of their life. They will find out that 1500 years ago they were part of a failed mission to create peace and harmony on earth. Now earth has reached a critical stage, and the young men are mandated to finish their original mission … to create peace and harmony on earth. One problem … they have forgotten the Secret of the Force, and they have 48 hours to remember it!

Throughout this fast moving adventure are woven some serious metaphysical principles. They are presented in a manner so that they are easily recognized, and just as easily placed into the readers daily life. This is wisdom that we have heard before, but that is being presented again because now is a time when it is important.

Then there are the myths and archetypal references … Merlin, King Arthur, the Archangel Michael, Avalon, and more. Our three young heroes are also gifted with sight into the akashic records, where they find that this is not the first lifetime that they have been together. They each carry a specific skill within them, and are gifted with weapons that align with their skill.

Their mission? To ready a specific power spot so that at a given time it can be aligned with other power spots around the world, and create a giant Light grid that prevents an axis shift, and spreads the New Vision across the earth. Now our young heroes have 2-3 years to change the world, and prevent a new axis shift.

A fast paced adventure of epic proportions, it has many more levels to it. To recognize the people around us, to know that we have a purpose in life, and that all things are interconnected.

If you want a good read … this is it!

Review – 101 Relationship Myths

101 Relationship Myths –

How To Stop Them From Sabotaging Your Happiness

Author: Tim Ray
Findhorn Press

101-Relationship-Myths-Cover1

Life is filled with myths … the area of relationship is one area where they abound!  In this book Tim Ray attempts to explode those myths, and offer tools that empower an individual to take responsibility for, and control of, their own life. One thing that we need to remember is that myths come from our collective unconscious … they apply to all of us.

In his prologue, Ray presents us with a tongue in cheek setting where relationships are the doing of the Devil himself. He has the Devil presenting the following lies about relationship: (1) The love I seek is outside of me. (2) The love I seek is dependent on another person. (3) I can only experience the love that I seek with one special person. (4) It’s only true love if the relationship lasts forever. This set the tone for the book … a tone that continued to be a bit over the edge. This was topped off at the end of the book where Ray does a take-off on “My Way”, by Frank Sinatra. The Devil is addressing Sinatra as “Frankie”, and referring to him as his most successful “ambassador” for telling lies about relationships. “Frankie” then gets the job of informing the Devil that God has sent the Archangel of Sanity to the earth. The content presented in this book is real and viable … the manner in which it is presented, not so much so.

In his introduction, Ray lists four observations: (1) There is a difference between reality and your thinking. (2) There is a cause and effect relationship between your thinking and your experience. Thought is cause, experience is effect. (3) When your thoughts are out of harmony with reality, you experience discomfort, stress, and unhappiness. (4) You can end your discomfort, stress, and unhappiness (and experience more happiness and peace) by bringing your thinking into harmony with your reality.

In Part One (101 Relationship Myths) we see a series of short (1 – 3 page) observations on myths, such as “Stay away from women in their 30’s”, “Are women to blame for all the porn?”.  “Your partner isn’t a mind reader.”, “You’re selfish if you don’t do what I want.”, “Does strong sexual attraction mean you are a good match?”, and “Club “Shouldsville”, the hottest club in town.”  At the end of each section is a short list of relationship myths pertaining to that section.

In Part Two (How To Stop Them From Sabotaging Your Happiness) Ray addresses myth busting, expectations versus reality, introduces the work of Byron Katie, talks about being in silence together, presents three ways to cultivate love in your life (and relationship), and lists ten observations about the nature of relationship.

In his epilogue (Before & After), Ray lists how an individual might have felt about themselves before and after reading this book. Essentially, the thoughts are the same, but in the before version they were difficult to accept, while in the after version the individual was accepting and happy. He also lists a compendium of the techniques that he has presented throughout the book, such as fogging and negative inquiry.

As irritated as I was with the presentation style, I appreciated the techniques that Ray offered, and the references to two of my favorite authors – Barbara Berger and Byron Katie.

The tagline for this book might be “Happiness is our responsibility, and comes from within us.” There is truth here, and this is what we need to take away from this material. Keep an open mind, and an open heart, while reading this book. It may get on your last nerve, as it did mine, but I was able to honor the content, while letting go of the presentation style. Truth comes from the perception of each individual.
