A Dream for Jeremy Taylor

I remember Jeremy Taylor from talks and classes I attended at The University of Creation Spirituality and The Chaplaincy Institute, an Interfaith Seminary in Berkeley. I also had the great privilege of interviewing him for the Creation Spirituality Elder InnerView Series last year (now posted at http://creationspirituality.info/experience/elder-innerviews/). I always sensed  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 one  Read More

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

The Mystics Essential Vision

A single vision carries me onward. Now in my seventies, part of me would just like to sit back and enjoy retirement. I love spending time family and friends. An introvert, I find public speaking stressful - travel, preparation, presentations, so why keep doing it? But this vision carries me forward. A vision I  Read More

Who Is God?

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  Read More

Mystics Might Hold the Key to the Survival of Humanity

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  Read More

A New Paradigm of Religion and Spirituality

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  Read More

Understanding the Divine Human?

The Divine Human is someone who experiences himself/herself as literally divine. It's a state of consciousness that changes the way we experience self and the world, a consciousness free of identity, time and story, and the whole problem-ridden labyrinth of mind that dominates our lives. In this awareness, you experience "your" consciousness and  Read More
