    The Mystical as the Highest Rung on the Ladder of Wisdom

    New York Times columnist David Brooks offers an insight in his column from Thursday, May 15, 2014, that has some interesting implications for the spiritual path and life I try to walk. Brooks is a columnist with whom I seldom agree. But in this piece, he focuses on what he calls the “ladder of wisdom.” […]

  • Praying “for” Others

    As part of my beliefs and teachings about Oneness, I sometimes find myself in a quandary to know and explain how to pray for other beings in Divine Mind Consciousness. The old style of beseeching prayer — what I call the “cosmic bellhop” model of ordering God about the Universe directing him to help and […]

  • Oneness and the Body

    It occurred to me recently as I was trying to explain the basic Truth of Oneness to someone, that only if you believe you are your body can you fail to accept your Divine Oneness. After all, the evidence of our senses strongly suggests that these “others” we see and hear and touch and encounter […]

  • An Affirmation in Jewish Scripture

    I ran across this quotation this morning. Until now, I hadn’t been aware of any place in the Bible where the use of affirmations was taught or suggested. But here is a quotation from Joel 3:10: “Let the weak man say, ‘I am strong’.” Interestingly, this admonition follows immediately after the far more famous mandate […]

  • A Course in Miracles

  • Forgiveness and Pointing Out Others’ Errors

    I really like this observation from Liz Cronkhite at the ACIM Mentor Blog. Her writings are among the clearest on the Web, particularly when it comes to the practical application of Course principles. The errors to which A Course in Miracles refers are errors of mind, not errors of behavior. You do not have to […]

  • Why “I See Only the Past”, Scientifically

    Lesson 7, “I See Only the Past,” describes itself as “particularly difficult to believe at first.”My experience is that all of the Lessons that deal with the re-orientation of our understanding of Time can be challenging. In addition to the spiritual and metaphysical reasoning behind these teachings, there is also a scientific angle that I […]

  • My Cosmology: An Overview

    In the beginning was Consciousness, manifesting as an infinite number of subatomic wave/particles and photons as Pure Energy. It was omnipresent. It was conscious but it was not self-conscious because it was a Unity which had nothing else of which to be conscious. As Divine Mind, it was perfect but not complete. It could feel […]

    Many Universes Hypothesis Gets Huge Boost From New Planck Study Results

    The big news in the world of science today was the announcement of a new set of results from the Planck satellite mapping enterprise. The entire story is fascinating, at least to me, and I found the Huffington Post’s coverage to be the most approachable and yet comprehensive, so if you’re interested, you might want […]

    Insightful Piece on “Religion” and Science from a Muslim Woman’s Perspective

    This piece on Salon.com today is one of the clearest and most cogent bits of writing on the subject of “religious vs science” that I have read in a good many years. Ms. Sana Saeed points out two vital issues in the so-called debate about scientism vs. religion in modern society. First, she reminds us […]

    Roger Ebert: An ‘Atheist’ and a Death Bed Vision

    Famed film critic Roger Ebert was widely thought by friends and colleagues¬†to be an atheist . Although he himself apparently never owned that label, and in fact rejected all attempts to put a tag on his spiritual beliefs, if any, the fact that he talked little if at all about matters religious or spiritual led […]

  • Kindness and Generosity Courtesy of Small Indian Boy

    This very short film will give you pause to wonder how an excruciatingly poor boy can see a need for generosity in the world and meet it without fanfare or gratitude while we quibble over whether someone who is poor and unemployed should be “given” unemployment insurance benefits they’ve earned.
