If we allow it, our ancestor's stories, their actions, and the consequences that were the result will guide our spiritual development.

If we allow it, our ancestor's stories, their actions, and the consequences that were the result will guide our spiritual development.

This will lead us to a greater awakening in our lives today. It will bring us equality under the True Law found within our True Law-Nature.

For each of you that joins us, your world will begin to blossom with Love and Compassion.

Tathāgata, a name Buddha used to refer to himself said,

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”

We hope to show you that consciousness is learned behavior; while using the latest breaking scientific discoveries to reveal the truths that appear to bear out across disciplines.

We are each our own self-limiting factors.

Breakthroughs in human understanding, however, are pathways to self-realization.

2,500 years ago, Buddha revealed the Wonderful Universal Truth that we all reach enlightenment sooner or later; all of the women and even the worst of the men eventually go.  It just takes some of us a little longer than others.

He revealed it is possible for each of us to find our own way, but cautioned it may be a steeper path when Great-vehicles exist.

What is Torch Time Tales?

Torch Time Tales is structured as a series of three-way intersections of past, present, and future, which will captivate and inspire readers/listeners/viewers everywhere to collapse into every moment; each distinct and all related to space and time with our reality here on planet earth in between.

Suggesting breakthroughs in human understanding are pathways to self-realization, Torch Time Tales compels us to realize we each have it within us to achieve. There are reasons why we are individually and collectively stuck, and with effort, we can all realize we are all truly equal when we can experientially confirm for ourselves we share an infinite mind.

Torch Time Tales also seeks to jump-start a global reparations process, aiming to replace our extended global family’s outdated thought processes with a more mindful approach. In perhaps a first-of-its-kind release in scope and scale, with history laid bare, creator Joni Whitmore is calling into account her family’s historical and contemporary wrongs that cover the spectrum of human suffering.

Torch Time Tales Creator

Creator Joni Whitmore, drawing on 1200 years of ancestral history from both sides of her family, has fashioned a compelling series named for an ancient symbol of enlightenment, which represents a light shining on lesser-known portions of human history while revealing profound truths about ourselves and one another.

Whitmore’s work in progress offers a cascade of new material for producers, historians, academics, and students of every age, that comes with a provocative series of messages and lessons learned from her direct descendants.

Our Faces

The creation and development of Torch Time Tales, of course, began with Author Joni Whitmore. Her groundbreaking work inspired a group of creative professionals to join Joni’s effort. The group includes an award-winning multimedia producer, a marketing specialist, a composer, a web designer, and several other experienced writers and artists.

Our Misson

SEE THE LIGHT. BE THE LIGHT. PASS THE TORCH.

Twenty-five hundred years ago, in recorded literature, in days of old never known by most, we were able to speak together in unison with one mind; by the tens, by the hundreds, and by the thousands.

Our intent is to open minds to understand that not only are we all connected, but we also share an infinite mind.

The Apology

Equality under the True Law, found within our true Law-nature, is deterred only by ignorance. The rest is about discriminations of the conscious mind resulting from learned behavior. Ignorance was identified by Sakyamuni Buddha as the first principle of the twelve-fold casual link chain of human suffering more than twenty-five hundred years ago.

When seven-plus billion people have recognized that it is possible we are all connected, the True Law shall begin again to be realized here. The remaining learned discriminations of our conscious ego minds can begin to "melt away like morning dew," as Buddha adds.

The Books

After everything that’s happened, you’re probably wondering what could come next for the world. What if it was a work of art that has the potential to move every one of us to a more connected, sustainably better place, with expanded capacity for peace of mind? More than 11 years in development, Torch Time Tales, Volume One, is the first of three volumes to be released in print and audio form for global distribution.  

All three volumes in the Torch Time Tales series provide a lens that gives us each an improved understanding of both our history and  the bizarre reality we occupy in the 21st century; a lens that will refresh the focus of our attention and the trajectories of our development, expanding the capacities of our human potentiality.

There are many paths we each may walk to the light. We may speak different languages and offer various practices. When we bring our light, and each individual torch, to reassemble together, We will be as one brilliant beam of eternal wisdom. 

 

 

Torch Time Tales was founded on the core principle of sustainability.

We are able to maintain our current model in perpetuity.

We would like to expand our model to reach and engage others who share our vision of bringing greater enlightenment to everyone.

For that, we humbly ask your help.

Is There a Roadmap For the Mind?

photo of Joni as a young girl

Author Joni L. Whitmore stepped onto her path at a very young age, asking questions many people are asking today.

With her questions, a torch was lit inside her. That torch has led her to many great teachers and lessons. Her studies brought her back to the answer to her first, most significant question. Is there a roadmap to enlightenment? There is. That map starts with a legend like any roadmap and that legend consists of the  Four Noble Truths.

They are:

All existence entails suffering.

Suffering is caused by ignorance, which gives rise to craving and illusion.

There is an end to suffering, and this state of no suffering is called Nirvana.

Nirvana is attained through the practice of the Eightfold Path.

Joni's greatest hope is that her quest in discovering her heritage, and the lessons to be learned from her ancestors combined with the great teaching of masters will help brighten that same torch within others.

In her books, she is showing us that there is a connection within us all and that connection is the torch.
