I recently watched a documentary called Incredible Animal Journeys where the presenter, Steve Leonard, “charts the lives of animals in the wild.” In the episode I saw, Steve follows a polar bear and her young cub who have travelled over 3,000 miles. Steve wonders how mother and cub can travel so far in such arctic […]

Pain is of the ego. The real self never goes through any pain. The dominant paradigm (model) in this reality we collectively define as earth is that one evolves through learning from experience. You come into a family, society and culture, you go through trials and tribulations. You look back on your experiences and try […]

There is a man I see almost every morning in our neighbourhood who always says hello. He loves his alcohol and he’s at it morning, noon and night. Last night as I was walking home I saw him and he beckoned me over. “Why don’t you come and visit me sometime?” he slurred. “I live […]

A little boy fell and started crying. His mother said, “Come to mummy. Let me kiss your knee better.” She kissed her son’s knee and gave him a big hug. The boy was soon smiling again. The love that mother gave to her son is symbolic of Divine Love that doesn’t judge; it is a […]

“And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” (Mark 2: 27-28) Time was made for man’s use, which makes each of us masters of time. Every time I have an experience I have two decisions […]

“We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.” The Borg Yesterday I met up with a friend. We talked about where he feels connected and wants to be, which is not London, yet things are not unfolding fast enough for him to be there. Because he doesn’t want to be in London, […]

In a previous article called The Transmuting Fire of Love, I wrote “…God/Love is a consuming fire that transmutes everything in Its way into ITself.” I see Love as a bonfire that never goes out. All I need to do is to toss in all my experiences to be transmuted into Love. Though I say […]

Imagine you’re camping. You’ve just built a campfire. You’re going to have to sit close enough for the fire to keep you cosy and warm. Sit too far and you freeze; sit too close and you get scorched. I’m also aware that one can be in a mental state where you’re not affected by fire. […]

“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” (Psalm 37: 4-5) In a previous article called Let Yourself Be Pampered, I talked about trusting in the Universe. There are, however, […]

Consciousness Raising

In one form or another I have always been interested in consciousness raising, which is focusing one’s attention on a particular belief or cause. This motivates you to join groups or organisations focused on the same belief or cause. What you focus on gets magnified and that’s all you end up experiencing for as long […]

It’s good to be in silence. I would always encourage people to practise a technique that assists in stilling the mind; meditation is one of many techniques available. I’ve been practising meditation for many years and I’m quite a master at it. One thing I do know is that the tangible “peace that passes all […]

In a previous article called Self-Acceptance, I wrote that I considered the computer screen to be a physical manifestation of my real Self because It accepts whatever I throw at it without condemnation or judgment. Self, like the computer screen, is free of concepts, beliefs, opinions and rules. This is what I’m referring to as […]

“Angels are not etherealized human beings, evolving animal qualities in their wings; but they are celestial visitants, flying on spiritual, not material, pinions. Angels are pure thoughts from God, winged with Truth and Love, no matter what their individualism may be.” (Science and Health) “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep […]

Yesterday when I got home I noticed my mother was coughing; she seemed worse than the night before. She was still taking the honey and lemon remedy she’d prepared. As I respect her beliefs I didn’t say anything. When she went to bed she coughed non-stop. Now, since I’ve been walking the “spiritual path” I’ve […]

Last night I watched a documentary on television that cited several major cities under threat of flooding and other “natural disasters” due to “global warming.” Scientific experts predicted how long it would take for this to happen. The knee-jerk reaction is to ask: When are people going to realise that if you project something like […]

I believe while there is only one Love there are different expressions of that Love. There is Love that is acceptance. You can accept someone for who he is without agreeing with his behaviour. You know he is expressing himself based on what he knows or believes. And while you accept others as they are, […]

“So you feel quite independent of Father’s wealth.” Ananta’s gaze was innocent as he resumed the barbs of yesterday’s conversation. “I am conscious of my dependence on God.” “Words are cheap!

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6: 19) The way the interior of a house has been decorated reflects the owner’s personality. Even if the person has hired an interior […]

We all do trust to a certain extent. Every day I travel on public transportation. I wouldn’t travel on a bus if I didn’t trust the bus driver, the bus, the other drivers, the traffic lights etc. When I’m walking and the traffic lights indicate that I should walk, I wouldn’t cross over if I […]

All human thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and deeds exist as a thought-form that keeps expanding as more beliefs are added to it, or as people focus on the thought-form. Some have called this thought-form the Akashic Records or Book of Life. The advantage of this thought-form is you can choose any part of it you wish […]
