Catch the Replay of We Are One in Spirit Podcast featuring Hal Manogue

Last week, Author Hal Manogue joined Yvonne Perry on We Are One in Spirit to discuss his newly released book, The Butterfly Ball.

What Is Consciousness? We have been taught that the word consciousness means the state of being awake and aware of one's surroundings. The dictionary also describes consciousness as the awareness or perception of something by a person. Both of these meanings are credible descriptions of our objective consciousness, but as most of us know we are much more than the objectivity we express. Consciousness is not limited by our description of it. In fact, nothing limits consciousness as it continues to expand in awareness. The billion dollar question is how does consciousness act in its subjective state and how does that action affect our physical being? The answer may surprise some of you. Others may discount the answer based on individual beliefs. No matter what your belief, the fact that all physical objects exist in a subjective region of consciousness before they become objective is a metaphysical and a recent scientific truth.

Howard (Hal) (Howie) Thomas Manogue spent the first twenty-one years of his life conforming to logical beliefs and rituals. He spent the next twenty-six years of his life rebelling against those beliefs and rituals in one way or another. For the last fifteen years he has been studying and writing about consciousness. His journey has taken him through the history of religious thought and the intricacies of philosophy as well as other associations and influences that impact the human belief system.

The Butterfly Ball introduces readers to the world of Doris Baker Hartley and her family. She was confused by her daddy’s mental war injuries, and manipulated by her mother’s religion. That was not unusual back in the late 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, but the personal attacked she experienced by a member of her family was unusual in several respects. She handled the life-altering experience by adjusting her belief structure. Doris kept the attack a secret, and that choice expanded her awareness of the natural world that existed around her.
