In March 1972 Larry Gordon Thomsen experienced a series of psychic occurrences: dreams, visions, spiritual insights and raptures. In one of the dreams he was being married to the Spirit of Christ, and as a wedding gift, received from Jesus a sacred book.
When the man awoke the next morning, he was immediately aware of the Presence of God being with him (located in the forehead between the eyes), and was struck with an overwhelming urge to write. For the next 33 years, amidst the activities of day to day living on this planet, Thomsen devoted himself to periods of solitude and living meditation, while fashioning the material together into two volumes of spiritually penetrating poetry entitled THE HEART SPEAKS.
From dream and vision into written form, a book of poetry published through the online marketplace Lulu reveals these sublimative experiences, and More, that have inspired Thomsen, while absorbed in the Presence of God (our innermost Being). However, he makes no rash claims, asking only that the reader "take from this book what you can if it aids you in your spiritual growth--and if it does not, then put the book down and go on to something which will".
Thomsen, a retired hotel manager, has become conscious over the years that he is living an interior Vision, the "Way of the cross" (which is referred to in his writing as "Living Jesus"), and wants those who read his book to know that in writing these poems his heart experiences the pure Joy that comes with Loving God, and prays others will too in reading them.
Though he had no idea in the beginning of becoming a poet and author, the Inspiration behind the material just poured out of him, and he couldn't stop writing...nor fail, even after so many years of contemplation, to complete this psychologically penetrating task in book form so as to offer to others what he believes is a Witness to the Spirit of Christ, and living prophesy.
As a follow up to his first book THE HEART SPEAKS, Larry Gordon Thomsen, again through the online marketplace Lulu, now offers in another context (prose), RIDING THE DRAGON, LIVING THE VISION, the Nonliteral Perspective or interior Vision that has been revealed to him during 35 years of living religion/meditation/faith/life/God, by our innermost Being.
Thomsen, being conscious of the Presence of God dwelling in his soul, writes (suggests) in spirit "that mankind is turning in on himself: on his own world, on his own soul, in his own mind going into self (spirit) or into hell (matter). In either case, man will meet his Lord...and will not escape himself! For we, as the indwelling spirit (light-conscious energy) of man, are a holy fire, even Now the flaming Core of Life Ourself (God)!
The interpretation given to him in a vision by the spirit of Christ, that the name Christ Jesus means God in man, refers not to a particular person in the past but to the "Living Potential" that is possible in each of us, even Now! The Way of the cross, then, is a Way of living Life (Jesus) through every event of the day, wedding and resolving the contraries of our human nature--and thus transcemding both as conceptualization. For only by fulfilling the Principal (Word) of Life through our own existence on this planet can we find true salvation in a world of duality, sensory perception and ego, that is, the literal perspective.
Though he writes what he lives (knows), Thomsen also realizes that it will be difficult for some, maybe even most, to accept the basic thrust of his words, or the Principal behind them, but hopes that they will at least stimulate thought on the subject of spirituality. His is not a "how-to" or "tell others how to live" kind of book. He offers the Teaching (Way of the cross) to the reader in the spirit in which he has received it from Within. Individual decisions will be made as to the veracity and urgency of his revelations.
