Recognizing our divine nature is a two-part process, involving both language and perceptual focus.
Let's start with the language part. What we call things is incredibly important. If we look out the window and call those green things trees, then we think we understand them and their place our world. But what if we (more…)

We can shift into mystical consciousness any time and any place. Sitting on an airplane recently, writing on a napkin, I knew again that I am what God is, and in this unity, all else fades into pure consciousness. In the experience of the divine Presence, identity, status, goals and problems have no meaning; (more…)

"What is God?" We can ask this question from two distinct positions: thought and experience. In the thought approach, we engage our intellect and conceptually ponder the nature and characteristics of the divine - a fascinating though often controversial subject that has produced vast libraries of belief and speculation.

Perhaps because my novel is finished, a novel that represents my own aging experience of settling into divinity and dissolving the artificial identity that had long ago removed me from unity, I feel a new kind of peace. Images from journaling this morning include drifting on a raft down a wide slow moving river (more…)

I've been MIA in recent weeks. Visits from the grandkids, a round of bronchitis, and lots of time spent on getting my new novel published have all distracted me, but I'm back in the saddle now.

Reflecting on the state of consciousness that expands when we quiet the "I" thought and all its fantasies, and how that openness feels, I quickly listed the follow qualities: It's a consciousness that's…
• Unhurried, unrushed, unscheduled, spontaneous and relaxed.

Are Boomers simply hooked on defeating aging, or getting through to the end, or are they simply unaware of this other possibility? I wish I knew the answer. I am convinced that the transformation of self and consciousness offers another path (more…)
