The world is made of stories
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – June 9, 2021
Stories tell about our history and the time and context it is happening. It tells about our past achievements and failures, our origin, nature, our role in society and future. The stronger and more powerful is our story, the greater are the chances that the prevailing systems will collapse on their own destructive forces. So, keep on telling us your story so we all can move on to a new world of our own design.
Our life on Earth is a process of building our own story
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – October 11, 2021
As toddlers, we first built our story from within ourselves with minimal guidance from our mother. But as we grew, we found ourselves mimicking how others think, emote, and behave. Eventually, we began to develop our story by copying the way of life of others.
In the end, our story has become a veneer of several complicated stories written by others for us. It's their story designed for us to live and intended to be shared to our siblings, children, and the next generations. But, in reality, it's their story, not our own. We're not aware that, in reality, we're only messengers and channels. And we also forget the importance and value of writing our own story instead. For we also have a story to tell.
So, look what is happening to us. For thousands of years, we have been herded into this or that ideology and belief, each claiming to be our shepherd and savior. We are impervious to the fact that we are literally captured animals to be led, like sacrificial lambs, to our slaughter.
We can no longer afford to live in a world made by others for us. We can no longer become conformists. We can no longer trust those who hold the reign and power of story telling. They have their own heinous agenda.
We must build our own story of the world we want to live in, a world that is able to serve the common good of the entire humanity. Our story could be an inspiring emulation to others.
Our Life Tell Stories
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – October 15, 2021
Books tell stories, many stories in fact. What makes them extraordinary is that they are written by people gifted with the ability, talent, and power to dig what is hidden from within them and obtain insights and wisdom, not usually revealed to ordinary people.
Gifted people seem to rely on their gut-feeling and intuition without regard to causality, logic, and reason. Out of this, they are able to produce art, concepts, symbols, music, songs, dances, poems, languages, history, and other forms of concrete expressions not commonly available to laypeople.
I can say this is true, not only to authors, but even to bloggers in the social media that produce daily commentaries on events, memes, trolls, bots, throwbacks, "tik-toks", live videos, youtubes, and online talks.
So, as you encounter stories written in books or other forms of print media, don't ignore them. Think deep. For their stories may carry with them information that could be of help to you in your day-to-day life.
You too can become extraordinarily gifted once you're able to deliberately examine your inner self and go beyond your existing beliefs, prevailing views, prejudices, biases, and preconceived notions.
A New Story About the Cosmos and Humanity Has Been Unveiled
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – January 1, 2021
There are still so many things to discuss about life and the Cosmos we're living in. I tried to put some of them into simple words and sentences and published them in book form. Understandably, I know that not everyone is ready to read and share my books to others since they are merely stories of an individual trying to survive and outlive a turbulent planet.
But, as I learned from others, I never underestimate what one story can provoke to someone's life. It can transform one's life forever as what the simple lives of Albert Einstein, Max Planck, David Bohm, as well as St. Therese, Mother Teresa, Paramahamsa Yogananda and Ramana Maharishi, in their young and tender age, did to many in this world.
My story may not be significant enough to trigger a dramatic, global impact, yet big enough for me to leave a legacy for the generations to come.
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – September 28, 2021
One of the challenges I face during class is how to keep the interest of the students alive during long hours of online teaching.
I find the Socratic method inapplicable and ineffective among doctoral students. Graduate degree programs expect teachers to give them new ideas, new insights, new philosophies, new paradigms, new methodologies, and new approaches to learning.
More importantly, students expect their teachers to demonstrate how these nuances can be relevant and meaningful in terms of transforming today's individuals, society, and environment.
Students also love to read books. They devour books that relate to their degree courses. That's why in the doctoral program, teachers are challenged to do research works and publish books or articles.
My Cosmic Books
1. “Our Cosmic Origins” (2017)
... seeks to answer such questions as: What are our origins? Who or what are we? What makes us uniquely humans? Did we come from the chance fusion of atoms and molecules or are we chimpanzees? Did some extraterrestrial entities or divine beings create us in their image and likeness? What of our future? Are we predestined machines “moved, directed and commanded by exterior influences”, as Mark Twain put it in What is Man? Or, are we free to choose our destiny?

... my attempt to respond to this question that has preoccupied humanity over the millennia. It’s an ongoing, open adventure to the unknown and the uncertain. I know there can be an infinite number of paths open for each one of us but I lay no claim to the truths and beliefs I may discover along the way. I could be totally wrong from the reader’s perspective. At best, my personal narrative may only serve as a guide for those who are still in the process of clarifying the meaning, purpose, and future of our earthly life.

But my story will continue to evolve for the remaining days of my earthly life. I know each one of us has a story to tell. While some may still be oblivious of their own story, this will become clearer as they journey through life.

6. “The World Beyond” (2022)
Of all my cosmic books, this is the toughest and most challenging. It requires a lot of my resolve as well as introspection and self-reflection. It speaks purely of the 5th dimension (5-D), the realm beyond the alpha and omega of religion, the realm beyond the mathematical formulation of science. For it is the realm of the unborn and the uncreated. It is the world of nothingness. But describing that realm in human terms can be a great challenge since our languages are already loaded with meanings exclusively intended for us 4-D earthlings. I must face this challenge. I must tell my story here, as my last hurray perhaps.

My 27 Youtube Videos
23 - (3370) 23-Is freedom an illusion or is it real - YouTube. Is our free will an illusion? Or, is it real? In what way is our free will an illusion or real? Is it possible perhaps that we are both free and determined? Or is this also an illusion?
25 - (3370) 25-Is the spirit world real - YouTube. Is the spirit world real? Who dwells in the spirit world? How did the spirits come about? What do science and religion say about the spirit realm? Does the spirit realm affect us and our physical world?
27 - (3370) 27-Who Rules Your Life? Your Conscious or Subconscious Mind? - YouTube. It is commonly accepted that a human mind has two parts -- the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. Scientists show that we use both of them but that one is generally more dominant and powerful than the other. The more dominant mind rules our behavior and our relationship with Nature and each other. But who really governs your life? Is it you? Is it your conscious mind or unconscious mind? Or, maybe, you simply don't know. Know more about yourself!
24 - (3370) 24-Are paranormal events real - YouTube. What are paranormal events? Are they real? What are examples of paranormal phenomena? How did they come about? Do they affect us and our physical world?
26 - (3370) 26-Are you spiritual or religious - YouTube. Are you spiritual or religious? Maybe both? What does it mean to be a spiritual person? What's the difference between the two? Is it possible to be religious without being spiritual?
Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – July 27, 2022
Journey to the unknown can be mind-boggling and breath-taking. Yet, it's good to lack back in time before everything--the atoms, molecules, the stars, galaxies, and all living creatures appeared. Knowing what was there even even before time, space, and gravity could perhaps give us a better understanding of who we are, why we are here, and what our role in the entire cosmic landscape is.
