Responding to criticism

A lengthy comment came in from someone who chose to remain anonymous. I decided to respond to it here because I assume that others may feel similarly. I am responding to the content of the message, not personally to the anonymous writer.

THE COMMENT

How much will the SOULPHONE cost?

When is its release date?

You people are almost certainly full of shit.

Why?

In that you already are probably light years ahead with this technology and secretly have full colour working video phones – while pretending that it is all in the future.

(1) People already get yes and no signals from their Higher Self.

(2) People already have dream time visitations with their loved ones.

(3) People already have a spiritual connection direct to GOD HIMSELF.

(4) People already get advice in their dreams to help them in daily life.

(5) People already have proof of the afterlife having had Near Death Experiences. Having broke out of the matrix and visited heaven and hell.

(6) The important thing is to SPIRITUALLY ASCEND to be ONE with GOD HIMSELF in TIMELESS ETERNAL BLISS AND HAPPINESS FOREVER…

NOT to use a SOULPHONE while hanging around on Satan’s Earth trapped in TIME in a cloned or robotic body forever separated from GOD!

(7) The SOULPHONE is NOT helping people to DIRECTLY SPIRITUALLY RECONNECT TO SOURCE.

It is analogous to the prison visitors center where a telephone and glass screen separate the lifer convict from the outside world.

Except that THIS outside world is THE Satanic Earthly Life Prison and the Afterlifers are the ones who are free.

The sole value of the SOULPHONE will be to PROVE to the MASSES that HEAVEN AND HELL AND JESUS AND GOD AND LIFE AFTER DEATH ARE REALLY REAL!

THEN you must DROP the SOULPHONE.

INSTEAD of USING FALLEN ANGEL SOULPHONE TECHNOLOGY you must reach DEEP INSIDE to REAWAKEN your OWN DIVINE SPARK OF GOD which lives for REAL in EVERYONE’S HEART!

JESUS CHRIST/GOD are really REAL and ARRIVING SOON!

YOU will be ETERNALLY ONE with GOD in TIMELESS INFINITE MULTI-DIMENSIONAL UNCONDITIONAL LOVE BLISS AND UNLIMITED JOY DIVINE PEACE GLORY HAPPINESS
FOREVER!

THE RESPONSE

Everyone is entitled to their personal religious beliefs. I write this response trusting that the commenter is well-intentioned.

Many responses to the SoulPhone are religiously based. See them in places like Facebook groups. A Christian-based negative response opines that the SoulPhone is incompatible with God/Jesus. This objection might be restated as God/Jesus is not OK with the advancement of technology.

Yet, logically, look at how well religion fared with radio, TV, movies, computers and the Internet. Without technological advances, would mega-churches, online forums, religious and spiritually themed media content exist in such proliferation?

I don’t know where the assumption comes from that the SoulPhone would block or short-circuit spiritual development. In my own speculations, the existence of SoulPhone technology would continuously and progressively amp up spiritual awareness, especially after a few years of different individuals experiencing them. If you could call up your dead Uncle Art on the SoulPhone—”I’m not as dead as you think!”—I believe it would stimulate curiosity about how the universe works.

People often confront the notion of the SoulPhone with the retort that humans don’t need it. They can already contact their deceased loved ones through various methods—telepathy, dreams, meditation, feelings, automatic writing, Ouija Boards, mediums, etc. I’ve never quite understood why inventing another and arguably a better way to communicate with spirit is not a good thing. Why does humanity attempt to improve anything? Was God against flight, advancements in medicine, computer technology?

Would the SoulPhone become addictive for people too lazy or distracted to tune into God themselves? Is this just about the makers of the SoulPhone reaping a fortune? It’s implied that the invention is/will be all about money and corporate greed. Ergo, it’s bad. This view ignores that anyone involved in the SoulPhone Foundation from inventor to supporter cares deeply about God, humanity, unity, and intensifying spiritual love around the globe.

Addiction fears stem from the idea that the SoulPhone is a short-cut, a crutch, taking the easy way out. I think that the reality of being able to talk to a ‘dead person’ would shake things up in a good way. While some may develop a dependence on the SoulPhone, it needs to be taken into account that ‘spirit’ will encourage growth. They won’t just be handing out free enlightenment, no effort required.

RECONNECTING TO SOURCE

I think the SoulPhone will motivate spirit growth.

In the first place, what if Jesus/God is behind the inspiration? It must be said that if the SoulPhone technology will work, it needs cooperation and permission from the other side. It is not a one-way street.

Second, what if the SoulPhone is a new technology that would provide a way to issue a new, modern “Bible” to humanity? Religion scholars are backwards-oriented. They try to decipher ancient texts. Since there is so much disagreement among the world’s religions about what the ultimate cosmic truth is, including literature channeled from the so-called spirit world, it makes sense that some deity might want to issue an upgrade to spiritual understanding suitable for the current time in the current language.

Third, while it’s probably safe to assume that some people would take any shortcut they could get, the SoulPhone would energize spiritual curiosity among many others. The SoulPhone is simply a communications device. It offers no dogma of its own. Just as a person can decide which church or temple or mosque to attend, people using the SoulPhone would choose who or what to offer their attention.

Fourth, direct connections to source originate in many ways. Some people are born into religious families and are raised in their faith without question. Others are moved through some event to pursue an understanding. It could be through tragedy or a series of hardships. It could be through a visitation or some other spiritually transformative experience. It could be through nature, sex, love, a mentor. It could come through a SoulPhone.

Fifth, phenomena such as near-death, out-of-body, and spiritually transformative experiences have intensified, not diminished people’s interest in knowing God. Their experiences are/were so intense that it triggers curiosity. It does happen, however, that an individual’s personal experience contradicts dogma, which upsets the religious apple cart. The SoulPhone potentially offers opportunities for deeply meaningful conversations with luminaries that will alter lives.

Sixth, I like to think that deeply religious critics would be open to see that the people involved in research and development of the SoulPhone technology are pursuing cosmic truth for themselves. They seek to understand the universe in the way that works for them with the same passion that motivated the likes of Tesla, Edison, Einstein, and others.

Seventh, in today’s religious world, followers of each religion rely on various priests, rabbis, shamans, and other official spokespeople. As the SoulPhone technology evolves, it could offer a similar opportunity via communication with luminaries at all levels—that could even include Jesus. Granted that this is a huge leap of faith in the eventual scientific breakthroughs, and great logistical refinement would be necessary, but such a future thrives in the hearts of the inventors.

Eighth, some people for whatever reason are not inspired by organized religions. Many atheists, agnostics, and simply apathetic people find religions unappealing despite any hunger or curiosity they may have about the big picture of nature. Without any dogma of its own, the SoulPhone could offer a communications channel that at the very least will prove that life continues after the death of the body. At that point, religion will not be the only “voice” of an afterlife. Science will be, too.

The opinions expressed above are my own and not official SoulPhone Foundation endorsed views.
