Secular Vs Religious Spirituality

Q: I heard the Dalai Lama say that secular spirituality is more important than religious spirituality. Do you think your teaching belongs to this category? A: It’s a good distinction. Religious spirituality is usually associated with a long tradition and certain stories. Secular spirituality is basically this: It doesn’t deny God or the transcendent, but …

That Which Sees

That which is aware of you right now, is God. That which is your own innermost awareness, right now, is God. That which sees but is never seen, is God. That Witness in you right now, ever present as pure Presence, is God. That vast Freedom, that great Emptiness, that primordial Purity, your own present …

The Man Who Swallowed a Snake

A wise sage often uses stories to draw us into a new thought or send us in a different direction, and Rumi was no exception. Rather than just hand us the lesson, a sage allows us to accept their stories on several levels. We can always learn something, even from the most obvious level of …

Elisha at Dothan

In the Bible, there’s a story that graphically portrays the calm confidence of the spiritually mature person. Actually, it’s just a part of a much longer story and we can find it in the 2nd Book of Kings ch. 6, vs. 15-17. “When the servant of the man of God (Elisha) rose early in the …

Beyond The Name

The concept of the name of God is one which has fascinated scholars and philosophers from the dawn of time. God reportedly revealed ‘His’ name to Moses via the burning-bush; as recorded in the book of Exodus 3:14. The name Moses heard was, Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh. Actually, it’s a phrase rather than a name, so …

The Problem of Jesus’ Last Name

The problem of Jesus’ last name is a misunderstanding most Christians have about who Jesus was. Even Pope John Paul II’s book of private reflections, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, contains this metaphysical misunderstanding. There is a metaphysical distinction between Jesus of Nazareth, the historical human personality, and the Christ as God’s “Only-Begotten Son” (Nicene …

The ‘I’ That Sees

The sensation of the wind on our face is one single sensation. However, thinking conceptualizes it as two. Thinking fragments this single sensation into two apparent objects, the wind and the face. In fact, it is one. We could call this new sensation ‘windface.’ The division of ‘windface’ into wind and face is a conceptual …

Discovering Ilie Cioara

When I look back over 2011, I feel that one of the most significant things to happen in my spiritual journey has been the ‘discovery’ of a newly published little book by the awakened Romanian mystic, Ilie Cioara, who was born in 1916, and died in 2004. I am deeply moved as I read and …
