Dr. Miceal Ledwith
Dr. Miceal Ledwith was ordained a Catholic
priest in 1967, was a professor of theology for sixteen years, and for the ten years following that, a College President.
His research interests had always been in the fundamental areas of religious belief, seeking answers to the "Four Great
Questions" as he liked to call them: "Who am I? Where do I come from? What should I do? and where am I going?"
After the fall of the Soviet Union when communications improved between Western Europe and the former Soviet bloc countries,
Dr. Ledwith discovered that more than 70% of the population in central and Eastern Europe had no allegiance to any form
of religious organization whatsoever. At the same time he noted a distinguished American sociologist had described Europe
as "a church catastrophe," while the Herald Tribune called it "the most godless quarter on earth."
Dr. Ledwith's researches confirmed his
earlier suspicions: that the lack of appeal which organized religion had for so many people was rooted in a far more serious
and complex issue - an actual distaste for organized religion as opposed to a distaste for spirituality. He was surprised
to find that so many people found God attractive, but the churches that regarded themselves as God's instruments they found
to be largely irrelevant. This was because they sensed organized religion had more interest in safe and predictable rituals,
combined with hard and fast teachings rather than in promoting the discovery of God by the individual. He found that most
people who had drifted away from religion did not seem to be holding anything serious against it; they simply believed that
religion had nothing worthwhile to say to them anymore. In short he saw that religion was coming to enjoy the sinister peace
of those whom the world had found irrelevant.
He noticed evidence of a very different
trend as well, especially obvious among a certain segment of young people, a fervor for religion focused now around the
personalities of charismatic leaders rather than on an attraction to the beliefs and practices of the religious system itself,
which would have been the more usual thing in the past. This fervor often had a rigid and fundamentalist character, a need
to have something firm and certain to hold onto in the most simplistic and black-and-white terms, almost always a sign of
deeply buried insecurity and doubt. This ought to have been a cause for considerable worry among religious leaders who were
perceptive, but instead it was usually interpreted as the God-given portent of a new religious revival among the young.
Drawing on his earlier historical research, especially in the history of the three great "Religions of the
Book" that stemmed from Abraham -Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - Dr. Ledwith
came to detect two patterns. In many instances the religious beliefs and practices seemed to be fragmented pieces that hinted
the existence of a much deeper and more comprehensive truth behind them all.The second
pattern was that many religions often seemed in practice to have stopped subscribing to many beliefs of central importance
proposed in the earlier stages of their own development.
Dr. Miceal Ledwith - Talks on Religion
He set out to examine the fundamentals
of religious belief to discover the deeper reasons why people no longer found them meaningful, and above all to subject
religious belief to the criticism of modern scientific method, since religious belief seemed to be the only modern discipline
of knowledge and practice that did not progress and advance its insights in this way. Among other things this involved the
painful separation of time-conditioned modes of thought and views of reality from the fundamental beliefs about God and
human destiny. It was just such a confusion that caused the major religious crisis at the time of Giordano Bruno and Galileo
Galilei from which the churches have yet to recover.
The insights of leading-edge science
indicate a very different understanding of God and our place and purpose in creation than the ways of thought with which
we were traditionally familiar. In the main this is because in the churches' theologies, cosmological views about the nature
of reality have never been distinguished properly from the religious beliefs themselves. This is also as true of Judaism
and Islam as it is of Christianity. During this search and reassessment Dr. Ledwith found the vast body of sophisticated
teachings from Ramtha's School of Ancient Wisdom, and he has been a student of those teachings for many years since, applying
them to all the fundamental areas of human concern.
This series of DVDs, of which The Great
Questions in the Hamburger Universe is the first, starts to put words on the problems most thinking people have found with
the traditional proposals about God, religion, and human destiny. It is intended to chart a different course for human hopes
and aspirations, based on the deepened and improved insights into the nature of reality which we have gained today. The
DVD series will serve as an introduction to some of the ideas more extensively explored in his forthcoming book Forbidden

Dr. MICEAL LEDWITH, Ph.D., is a fascinating
speaker who introduced Orbs to the world as co-author of “The Orbs Project” and producer of the movie “Orbs:
Clues to a more Amazing Universe". He has come to be recognized as someone who perhaps has done more work on the orb
phenomenon than anyone else. He has the largest and most significant collection of orb pictures – more than 100,000
images as of now, from the past five years, and some forms of them like the ones of the torsion vortices, have not been

scientific story and indeed our current sense of the possible."

it is great to know that we are receiving cosmic energetic communication."

"The Orb Project helps us peer into a very weird phenomenon with some sobriety and
discernment. Even Einstein referred to the puzzling world of quantum entanglement as 'spooky action at a distance' before
it was better understood. Breakthroughs in science come when we are prepared to explore persistent anomalies. Orbs may just
be evidence that can only be explained outside of the box of current limiting and reductionist worldviews."

Ledwith - "How Jesus became a Christ"
How Jesus became a Christ" is the
second DVD in the "Deep Deceptions" series. The series set out to ascertain answers to what he calls, "The
Four Great Questions" about human destiny: Who Are We?; Where Did We Come From?; What Should We Do?, and What May We
Expect After Death? Jesus promised that those who followed his message would do all the wonders he did and more. If this
is not happening in todays Christianity it shows that something has gone very seriously awry. Few even realize that more
than 80% of the life of Jesus is missing from the New Testament. Míeál Ledwiths lifelong study of the available
sources had identified many gaps in the religions understanding of God and our place in the world. In particular it became
clear that the Christian religions do not, as they claim, carry the revelation of a previously unknown message; but are
based on fragments and corruptions of a rare and very ancient wisdom. The early Christian Church spent several centuries
of tortured controversy trying to explain how God could have become man in Jesus the Christ.
It should have focused instead on how
the divine element in every man and woman could be effectively drawn forth. According to the teachings of Ramtha, and upheld
by a thorough investigation of all the historical sources, that is precisely what Jesus came to exemplify and facilitate
for everyone. Inspired and guided by Ramthas teachings, this DVD presents what was accomplished during the transformative
journey of the so-called hidden years of Jesus in Egypt, India and Tibet, which all came to fruition in the dramatic events
of the three-year ministry in his homeland. The message of Jesus when placed in this context is radically transformed from
what it is if you somehow believe that all he accomplished was made possible by an eighteen-year apprenticeship at a carpenters
