Translation is a 5-step process using syllogistic reasoning to transform man and the universe back into Being. Being is the perfect, essential nature of all, and through the process of Translation, Reality is uncovered and thus revealed. Through word tracking, getting to the essence of the words you are using to express your current view of reality, you are uncovering Essence, which is the only true reality.

There is only room for Truth in the Truth. This means there is only room for seeing the Truth, choosing the Truth, and loving the Truth. A fierce commitment to Truth is a moment-to-moment…Continue
