    Once Again, Oneness Would Resolve War

    I am reminded daily that by the relatively simple — but not easy — adoption of the acceptance of the Truth of Oneness of All That Is, we humans could avoid so much conflict. American humanitarian air supply protected by U.S. military airpower dropped food, water, medicine and other necessities into the region near the […]

  • When Prosperity = Enoughness

    When Prosperity = Enoughness

    My good friend Rev. Vicky Elder and I have been working for the last several months on a new course on the subject of Prosperity. During the last several decades, a number of spiritual teachers have developed such courses, primarily stressing abundance and its achievement. We’ve decided it is time for a radically new approach. […]

  • The Mystical as the Highest Rung on the Ladder of Wisdom

    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.” […]

  • 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 […]

  • Cosmology

  • 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 […]

  • Interfaith

  • Interfaith Teachings

    I sometimes refer to this aspect of my studies and teachings as “interspiritual” because “interfaith” is often used to describe efforts at creating tolerance rather than appreciation and understanding, which is what I’m most interested in.

  • What Does it Mean to ‘Take Up Your Cross’?

    In one of the many online forums in which I am active, a fellow member posted a thoughtful note about the meaning of the phrase, “take up your cross”. This is a common and very powerful metaphor in Christianity. When I was growing up in the Christian church, it was a strong admonition. From my […]
