How We Manifest God Internally

So the last time I brought this verse into play was in a post called The Bride & The Bridegroom. Now, in that post I alluded to a deeper understanding of how aspects of self relate to Divinity but shied away from the more occulted aspects of the doctrine. Partly because of how people view […]

HOW TO HUMAN WITH LOVE

A lot can be said about the spiritual path. We could intellectualize until we’re blue in the face or we can follow a simple commandment: live in love. Everything else is just window dressings. One simple form of living in love comes down to us through the Jesus Prayer. Monks going all the way back […]

FINDING THE ROOTS OF THE CHURCH

A few months back I became very interested in how Christianity has evolved into the Dogma it is today. Doctrinal issues and personal interpretations to the side, it’s just easy for one to be confused by what we call Christianity. In a world where charismatic preachers double as motivational speakers and over 45,000 denominations claim […]

THE ART OF LETTING GO

We talk a lot about healing. Let go and let God. Forgive and forget. Embrace our shadows. Live in love. Yadda yadda!!! But. How many of us genuinely consider what we’re letting go of? How often do we have epiphanies that show us how much easier it is to just let go and love. Let […]

THE BRIDE & BRIDEGROOM

“A person can receive not even one thing unless it has been given to him from heaven. You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent ahead of Him.’ He who has the bride is the groom; but the friend of the groom, who stands and […]

FIRST THINGS FIRST Just smile. It sounds like some new wave “positive vibes only” head trip but it’s not. Your body releases three different hormones when you smile- dopamine, endorphins and serotonin. You don’t need a PhD to know that these chemicals send signals to your body that you’re happy which, in fact makes you […]

EPIGENETICS & GENERATIONAL CURSES

LICK YOUR PUPS: HOW NURTURE AFFECTS NATURE So there’s this wonderful research by Dr. Moshe Szyf and Dr. Michael Meaney that came out of the McGill University a couple of decades ago. They’d noticed that some rat mothers licked their pups after being handled by members of the team while others sort of ignored the […]

CREATURE AND CREATOR

Meister Eckhart is by far one of the most prolific writers of the Christian mystic tradition. His insights into how we are to become vessels filled with the light and love of God have comforted me in a way few others have. I’d like to share a piece from his Book of Divine Consolation with you as […]

JACOB BOEHME

Boehme taught that we human beings have a hidden essence within us that is God. A divine spark that remains within us looking to be found. “An immortal Dowry.” – “an inward Ground and unlost Possession.” He talked of an “innermost Birth” that happens when we start the work of discovering this inward Dowry. I […]
