After getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in acting and directing, pursuing an acting career in New York and points west, and performing lead roles in comedies, dramas and musicals, Bruce de Torres decided to write a book about energy, consciousness and the nature of reality.
9/11 happened along the way. After years of research, he incorporated it and similar things in GOD, SCHOOL, 9/11 AND JFK: The Lies That Are Killing Us and The Truth That Sets Us Free.
Bruce also drummed in rock bands and hosted 1,000+ business networking meetings while developing his marketing, sales and public speaking skills. He lives, once again, in New Jersey.
Bruce is available for interviews, conferences, etc.

The truth that sets us free is this: we are one. Doing all to and for our self.
There is no “other” doing anything “to” us.
This is an entirely spiritual realm.
The one and only – us – eternal; unharmable; unchangeable; safe – was perhaps bored.
So we designed this game.
We’ll appear to our self as one among many in a competitive world.
We’ll fear until we discover this truth. Then we can love.
We’ll adapt to survive with the people who raise us, be they sane or crazy.
And everything will try to tell us that we are one. That there are no coincidences. We are creating everything. We are playing Hide and Seek with our self.
We’ll feel this truth – often – with parents and children and friends and animals and nature.
We’ll read poetry and philosophy and literature, and see this.
We’ll be swept away by movement – water flowing down streams and rivers, dancers dancing, tall grass waving in the wind – and music – and we’ll realize this.
This is the universal discovery.
Consciousness is all there is.
We are one.
This game of appearing as one among others is frightening, until we love.
Our biggest challenge is our internal talking mind. It thinks thoughts of fear, thinking it is one in competition with many, until we choose our thoughts.
In fear, we fumble for the right thing to do or say, to placate what scares us; to make the threat go away; to fool the threat into thinking that we are no threat; to get what we need before others get theirs.
We pose and pretend. To get through the scary moment. The scary day. The scary life.
There is no joy or self-respect in faking or hiding.
We knew, before we were born, that this game would be horrifying. But we trusted that love from people and animals and children and “others” who had already figured it out would help us figure it out, too. So we dared to play this game, confident that we, too, would figure out our oneness. And then we would help others figure it out, too.
Discovering that all is one makes us adults. People who fulfilled the charge to “Know thyself.” People who can parent themselves and others.
To parent is to mom and dad.
To mom is to love. To comfort, soothe, satisfy and restore. Our self and each other. To make safe. To say things like, “You’re okay. Everything is alright. You’re safe. You’re not alone. I’m here. I love you. I will always love you. You’re always going to be alright. Everything is always going to be alright. You’re always going to be loved.”
To dad is to empower and encourage. To convey, “You can do this. We’ve got a lot of things to do, people to see, fun to have, things to build, messes to make and clean up. Then we’ll come home and tell everyone about it and find out what they did and we’ll all learn, learn, learn, learn, learn. Then we’ll go to sleep and dream about doing it all again tomorrow!”
Mom and dad. Love and empower. To make our self and others feel safe and know that we are able.
Safe. Because we are eternal. Something that is eternal can’t change or be harmed.
And we are able because we’re here! We exist. We create and create and create things and experiences that seem to come and go – because we can! This is how we entertain our self. We create and create and create.
Spread the word. The world is a better place when more of us know who and what we really are. It’s the antidote for feeling lost and alone among many, the antidote for the traumatized masses; the majority of Americans who feel powerless after going through public school, where we are trained to feel helpless, scared, sad and mad. Too many of us survive by doing what we are told, by doing what, quote-unquote, everyone does, just as we did in school. Too many of us escape into entertainment, altered states (drugs or alcohol) or despair.
The idea that we are one – this new identity – comes with, literally, infinite possibilities, because the one that we are is not only eternal, but infinite.
That’s what quantum science has been saying for about a hundred years. The stuff of which all is made, which we call energy, is literally potential. Infinite possibilities.
We can and should renounce fear and worry. If all is us, who or what is there to fear? If we know that we’re going to love all as our self, what is there to worry about?
Those who fear and hate others, who exploit others before others can exploit them, must believe that they are separate from and threatened by “others.”
Don’t be like them. Don’t let people who fear and fight destroy your ability to love and discover reality, the experience and bliss of oneness. Do not let them divide and conquer us by pitting us against each other, by making us believe that we endanger each other.
Counter the bitter thought that we are victims of some god or process that made us, against our will, a vulnerable one among many who must fear and fight in dog-eat-dog competition, in a war of all against all.
Know the truth that sets us free. We are one.
Take one hundred percent responsibility for everyone and everything in your life. For being alive. For getting yourself here.
Love and empower everyone and everything as if all were you.
See the difference it makes, the fun you have, the ease of it, and think and choose for yourself if that is the idea you want to cherish and share with others.
Our challenge, self-inflicted, is this: to love every other, every person and situation, as our self.
It can take massive work, especially if you’ve lived for years thinking otherwise. It helps to listen to people who have had near-death experiences. NDEs. Look them up. Watch some interviews on the “Anthony Chene production” YouTube channel. All seem to confirm these ideas about the oneness of existence and the nature of reality (eternal, blissful love).
Each of us chooses what life is and whether or not it is lovable. That is, we CAN choose if we wake up from the internal talking mind and choose to think consciously; choose to choose our thoughts. We need not live on automatic pilot, doing what we’ve always done because we’ve always done it. We can become the sovereigns – the conscious, intentional decision-makers – of our lives.
What we think and feel about life is what we think and feel about our self, for we experience what we think and feel – we become what we think and feel – and all is one.
With love and power to all,
Bruce de Torres
