Who Is God?

Tags: The Divine Human

Who Is God?
I believe we have the wrong understanding of God. For eons, humans have viewed God as a huge, external, and all-knowing human-like figure who rewards some, punishes others, and ignores many, and whose actions in the world often seem mysterious and inexplicable. This is the projection model of God: we humans (more…)

Mystics Might Hold the Key to the Survival of Humanity

September 27, 2017

Tags: Mysticism, Divine World, Awakening

Mysticism is about the divine love that flows through everything in the universe and through us into the human world. Love is why we're here. In a letter to his daughter, Albert Einstein called it the "…force that includes and governs all others."(1) And the mystics from all traditions and times have told us (more…)

A New Paradigm of Religion and Spirituality

August 24, 2017

Tags: Spirituality, Religion, Divine Human

A huge paradigm shift is taking place in religion and spirituality that will change all of us and hasten our collective enlightenment. "God" is not what we have thought or imagined. In fact, our ideas about God are all wrong. God is not some separate, human-like figure that we must pray to and hope (more…)

Understanding the Divine Human?

August 7, 2017

Tags: Divine Human

The Divine Human is someone who experiences himself/herself as literally divine.

Where Questions Answer Themselves

August 6, 2017

Tags: Mysticism, Divine World, Awakening

Released from conventional way of things, descending into the silent fathomless depths from which my essence flows, saturating with divine love, I am what is and need no more.

The Mystical Consciousness of Eden

May 25, 2017

Tags: Mysticism, Divine World, Awakening

I often walk from my house to the end of a spit on the island where I live. One day, I recorded a list of qualities I experience in this awakened right-hemisphere consciousness. I use words to describe and communicate the experience, but of course they are not normally part of it. Here is (more…)

The Nine Principles of Divine Manifestation

May 19, 2017

Tags: The Divine Human, Mystical Consciousness

All my psychological, spiritual and mystical work over the past two decades has joyfully lead me to reclaim and proclaim pantheism - the idea and realization that everything is already sacred. We and the world are the literal incarnation of the divine. We fail to experience this truth because we have trapped ourselves in (more…)
