Beyond the Mind (Par-delà le Mental) throws light on one of life's persistent mysteries: nothing less than the mind. This work is more accessible to those unfamiliar with the author’s line of thought.
It resumes itself essentially in the elaboration of the role of mind and its various functions in defining the human experience. de Montréal hold that the mind must manifest itself
through freedom from “historically conditioned
ideas and concepts”. The notion of belief systems, as a subgroup of mind activity also receives attention in its relation to the “invisible” or to the spiritual dimension of man, and to the way he has carried this relationship historically and on a daily basis. The topics developed here apply to a long-term “evolutionary” process whose referents belong to future generations. Bernard de Montréal holds that conscious awakening of the mind naturally triggers dissociation between the collective consciousness and the subject. This awakening is confronted to the Cartesian definitions of modern psychology, as it seeks to transcend the contemporary notions of a conditioned subjective reality. Above all, the author raises the importance of a concrete and objective reading of the soul’s nature, objective, that is,
when free of egocentric attitudes. This level of comprehension
eventually allows the “development of supramental consciousness” or the awakening of “conscious thought” to take place, towards the attainment and “integration of creative thought”. Bernard de Montréal also addresses various social phenomena from a more pragmatic approach, making
Beyond the Mind the most tangible and accessible
of his books, for readers seeking to understand
the modern experience. Finally, this book considers the various symptoms manifested by fragilized minds in our midst, that are incapable of warding off the influences of the “astral plane”, which he ultimately condemns as the common source of destructive behavior and impulses within man.

The Genesis of Reality (Genèse du Réel) stands out as a work of reference. It proposes new insight into the workings of the mind. It is a work of reference rather than a mere tool of intellectual speculation arising from crystallised and entrenched ideas. Bernard de Montréal’s fundamental work foretells a profound identity crisis in man, which will arise from his awakening to a new level of consciousness, a most relevant topic in the West today. The author looks at the eventual birth of an “integral consciousness”, which will initially be experienced on an individual basis, when freedom from the illusions of the ego has been achieved and the “cosmic lie” has been revealed, making the collective consciousness of “involution” a thing of the past. While addressing the universal principle of polarities, this dichotomy reveals the ongoing war between the invisible worlds which serve “evolution” and those which have served “involution” throughout history. To further elucidate the complexity of the mind and its universal nature, Bernard de Montréal’s works also reveal the various roles assigned to universal hierarchies, which execute tasks essential to the evolution of man on earth.
In an attempt to debunk another truism of modern thought, the author seeks to redefine the notion of free will, a “form of necessary deception” he writes, before we can achieve the full comprehension of the thought process. His redefinition of the notion of involutionary “free will” is central to his thought. He further states that the “awakening of the spirit” will bring into question the premises of free will. de Montréal deems this to be essetial for the accession to a “supramental consciousness… destined to the fusion of the soul and spirit”. He evokes the coming of age of a new consciousness, designed to render man « universally intelligent ». Enlightened with this knowledge, he writes, the new man will gradually abandon the illusions of involutionary free will, to become free in the reality of will as a supramental being.
Bernard de Montréal defines the previous development of the “speculative counterpart” of the intellect, as “necessary to the development and progression of the ego” and its transcendence which will ensure the eventual emergence of a higher being. Its chapters deal with ontological and metaphysical concepts, namely “The Light of the Spirit”, “Occult forces”, “Political forces and the End of the Cycle” or “The Individuation of the Human Mind”, heralding the science of a new man at the onset of the next cycle of thought evolution, about to join a battle waged, to this day, on the grounds of the human psyche.

Dialogue with the Invisible (Dialogue avec l’Invisible) is undoubtedly the work that most clearly exposes the singular dynamics of internal communication which distinguish the author, as channeler of a “supramental science”. Bernard de Montreal did not consider himself as a medium and was reluctant to define the nature of his source. This book testifies to the author’s intent to submit his source to an acute dialogue, setting the grounds for its self-revelation. Dialogue with the Invisible highlights a distinct mode of communication with what he qualifies as a “systemic entity“ or “intelligence”, which he interrogates through a cognitive rapport, with authority and insistance. For its purely dialectical aspect, the originality of this work is revealing as it exposes a cognitive rapport of higher communication established between the author and an entity which communicates “from an individuated plane”. Through this process, the latter provides access to information which the author deemed useful to individuals having begun a process of mind evolution.
This "entity" identifies itself by the pronoun “we”, while addressing the author in the second person plural, to designate humankind. This level of mental communication or “fusion” will, according to the author, be perceivable by all beings having undergone a process of individuated consciousness in time. Such was Bernard de Montreal’s conception of this particular and permanent “mental” state, from which he drew his knowledge, but from which he also suffered and fought for some 34 years, towards the mastery of what he deemed to be an “integrated” mental state.
