9781482773651: The Iceberg Principles: The Truth About The Universe And Your Place In It.

The Iceberg Principles are a concept that illustrates the truth of who we are as human beings.
As with an iceberg, only 4% of us shows. Our physical DNA describes us but it does not really define who we are. Our talents and strengths, things we love, our unique gifts and quirks - those are the 96% that define us and those things are invisible.
We exist to express what lies in the 96% in the 4%; only in this way can we feel whole.
When we think we are nothing more than what shows in the mirror we are separated from ourselves and everyone else; lonely and exposed to the dangers. Life is about competition. We compare ourselves to others and always somehow we come up short.
When we ignore or suppress the gifts and talents in our 96% we experience depression. We feel anxiety because we know deep down that there is more to us and we are wasting our life. We feel out of sync and eventually we end up in dis-ease, which causes physical and emotional pain, and that is the root ofaddictions like overeatingalcohol and drugs misuse - prescription or otherwise, and even smoking.
When we cultivate what lies in our 96% we tap into an inexhaustible storehouse of inner strengthvitality and energy. When we honor our gifts and hone our talents we do what we love and life becomes passionate. We benefit and so does everyone else around us. When we love and honor ourselves ourrelationships automatically become more loving. Life is no longer about unmet needs but about what we have to share with the world. Then we open up the flood gates to abundance and affluenceEase and harmony prevail and life becomes so good that we have to pinch ourselves. Everything that we desire as human beings is right at our fingertips and there is not a thing we need to change to get it. On the contrary, The Iceberg Principles show that in order to feel complete we must become more of who we already are.

From the Author:

   I was reborn when I discovered the Truth contained in The Iceberg Principles.  I mean that literally. You see, in 2008, I had been given only a year to live.
 
I was in a small room in Germany writing my autobiography, Crawling Into The Light. It was to be my legacy. I had sold my home overlooking the ocean in Southern California, along with all my worldly possessions. I had stuffed what was left into two suitcases and returned to the country of my birth to make my peace.
 
   Crawling Into The Light told the story of how I had sought to escape a painful childhood of rejection, molestation and rape by marrying a man who turned out to be so obsessed with controlling me that he intentionally got me addicted to heroin to make me dependent on him. By the time I escaped that nightmare it was too late; I was a junkie. To support my habit I became a prostitute and a criminal. I hit bottom when I became homeless. In desperation, I turned myself in to the authorities and was sentenced to prison.
 
Amazingly, when I got out, I found a new life. I found a job in marketing that I loved. Eventually, I started my own company and turned it into a multimillion-dollar enterprise. My life began to look like a fairy tale, yet somehow deep within I was not happy.
 
I still carried the unwanted, unlovable and abused child inside me. In fact, it seemed that the more successful I became, the greater the chasm in me grew. I was a multimillionaire but had to be on antidepressants to help me cope with my existence. Then I got sick and eventually, I was given only a year to live ... and that's how I ended up in that small room in Germany, meditating and trying to find peace. It was in that small room that I received my greatest gift: a glimpse into the secrets of life I call, The Iceberg Principles.
 
It began with a friend, via email, posing the question, 'What is God? I found this question interesting, and as I was composing my reply, suddenly the words began pouring out of me. I was amazed at the information that seemed to emerge from my own hand, yet was more than I ever knew. I sensed that this was big!
 
  I continued delving into the information and found a sense of enthusiasm growing inside of me. Suddenly, my whole life began to make sense to me. It became clear that everything I had ever done, the good and the bad, had been necessary to bring me to this point where I was open to receiving the understanding contained in this book. My past had been necessary, but the Iceberg Principles were my destiny. Suddenly I knew that I would not be dying just yet. Instead, I knew that my life had really just begun.
 

From the Inside Flap:

Only four percent of an iceberg shows, the other ninety-six percent is invisible. That is the cosmic ratio and it shows up everywhere in nature. When you look up at the night sky you see four percent matter, the stars, and ninety-six percent non-dimensional emptiness, or dark matter.
  
The cosmic ratio also applies to us. Only four percent is visible. Ninety-six percent is invisible. It is non-dimensional.
This the spiritual DNA -  the blueprint for the mix of gifts, talents, capacities, likes and dislikes that make up who you really are and hint towards the reason you exist.
 How come you're not aware of 96% of your being? - because your mind is just a tool for the dimensional realm. It can't know about non-dimensional issues. Your mind doesn't know it is connected to something so much bigger.
 
You are not your mind but your mind oftentimes poses as you. That's why you're scared. Scared of living and scared to die.
 
But there is so much more to you than meets the eye - and this book proves it!

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Iceberg Principles connect spirituality and science in a way that proves that the energy, which is the substance of the Universe, really is Love - not sweet, syrupy, candy-and-roses kind of love but the most powerful force in the Universe. Love without expression is meaningless. This is why the Big Bang was the only logical outcome. Love had to become reflected in dimensionality. With the Big Bang a 4:96 ratio was created between the dimensional and non-dimensional realms. This ratio between visibility and invisibility, the ratio of an iceberg, also applies to human beings. Only four percent of who we are is visible. Our physical DNA describes us but it does not define us. What defines us are our characteristics, our gifts, talents and strengths - the spiritual DNA. This is invisible but makes up ninety-six percent of who we are. Our talents are not accidental; our life purpose is to express them. Just as the Universe emerges into dimensionality, constantly creating galaxies at millions of miles a minute, we are meant to emerge. We exist to express our gifts and talents in the world. In fact, it is the only way we can ever be fulfilled. We have a need to leave our mark. For us to be happy as human beings we must have impact. Without it we are out of sync, out of integrity with our being. This is painful. It is the cause for depression, anxiety and the emotional pain that underlies addiction and disease. This is the root of every problem we are facing in the world today. With the expression of our gifts we come into alignment with our soul and we step into the universal flow. All the things we so desperately chase - happiness, affluence, health and love become quite naturally a part of our experience. There is nothing we can do to get these things. We must be in alignment to experience them. There are many new and ancient practices that allow us to discover what lies beneath, to make contact with our higher self, and to connect the four percent with the ninety-six percent to become whole.
