Love and The Divine Human

The Divine Human
In experiencing our mystical essence, we soon discover the subtle energies of divine rising inside in tendrils of love that spread through the body. We melt the separate mental self-construction into the thought-free divine Ground of Being that we lost touch with when we created a separate identity. From this reunion,  Read More

The Spiritual Tower of Babel

Charismatic megachurch preachers, spirituality pop stars, the latest neuroscience proclamations, and the multiplicity of religious theologies…with so many competing versions of "truth" the world creates another Tower of Babel, ignoring the mystics who speak only one language - the language of direct experience. And their message is this: Return to center of consciousness  Read More

In the Silence of a Sunday...

In the silence of a Sunday I hear the ticking of the aging clock - time slowly passing, the clock itself deteriorating, the whole experience becoming a peaceful river carrying me to the end, and the beginning. In its gentle flow, I have no agenda and no desires. I come to rest in a sea of Divine Consciousness ignoring  Read More

Transcending the Goal-Oriented Approach to Spirituality

Approaching the end of the spiritual journey, we discover that all our spiritual beliefs have become futile distractions. We can't figure God out or reach divinity with more thinking. Books, philosophies, experts, disciplines and theologies cannot hold the living divine universe. Stop searching, rest in thought-free consciousness, pay attention, and all will be revealed,  Read More

The Two-Way Mirror Analogy of Aging

The Two-Way Mirror Analogy of Aging

The Two-Way Mirror was part of my early clinical psychology training in graduate school. Therapy rooms in our training clinic had been constructed with see-through mirrors. You've probably seen similar arrangements on television crime shows where those behind a mirror watch a suspect's interview. What you see through  Read More

Grandparents

Playing with seven grandchildren, I join the timeless game of unselfconscious play, our beings dancing together in the eternal unity of joy, spontaneity and silliness that create magic. Is this not what we are here to do now, to mirror the magic of childhood so it does not leave them as quickly as it  Read More

The Other "Me"

The other "me" is always present. Silent. Awake. Conscious. Watching. Waiting. Enlightened. The poet Juan Ramón Jiménez describes it like this:

I am not I
I am this one
Walking beside me whom I do not see,
Whom at times I manage to visit,
And at other times I forget.

The Cosmos is a Great Womb of Creation

The cosmos is a great womb of Creation. In it, vast germinating processes, states and events form, change, evolve, become, construct, deconstruct, fall away, are born again, and awaken, a continuously churning dynamism generating cosmic life, and we are all part of this cosmogenic consciousness. When we feel our own being in awakened consciousness,  Read More
