Passageway to the Infinite Self: Rael tells his vision that all existence is vibration, and then moves into the concept of the wall and how the walls of our personal experiences are actually passageways to find our inner knowing.
Sound Beings: Joseph Rael was brought to the home of his father’s people at the age of eight and was raised at Picuris Pueblo in the Tiwa tradition. Tiwa is an oral tradition that imparts a metaphoric understanding to life through the sounds of language.

His philosophies of the beings of sound are applicable to our daily lives and help us to find The Divine in our every word and action.
