We have a problem with 'God'.
We don't know quite who or what
'God' is so we make images of 'God' though we have been told not to. Or
we think 'God' into a corner, freezing Him into one of several ancient
books. Or we do what I just did and make a Him out of what could be
a Her or an It.
We seem to have no problem thinking about 'God' because for most of us
that is all we know how to do - is think. Yet it hurts to think about
Actually, there is a problem with all thoughts. Each
thought is a disturbance in consciousness.
If pure, clean, clear
absolutely still water is an analogy for pure consciousness then our
thoughts are like fish swimming in it. Always making a disturbance.
Most people do not realize that there is a world of difference
between what they think about the world versus the way the world
actually is. Its the same with our thoughts about 'God'. Our thoughts
are one thing and 'God' is something different.
Concepts and ideas are
routinely mistaken for reality but reality can never be contained in
something as small and trivial as a mental concept or idea.
We do have rational minds as well as active imaginations and other
ways of thinking.
Like Einstein said,
"I think with intuition."
love to think so much that often we cannot even get to sleep as
thoughts just pound through our minds.
There is a thinker of the
thoughts that is independent from the thoughts and we learn about
this self when we practice mediation.
There is not much in the world today that supports the deliberate
cessation of thinking. Yet that is the path I have been on,
especially lately. Over thirty years ago I attained the ability,
after ten years of meditation, to still my mind for up to 20 minutes
at a time.
Through the years this space never left me but I did not
focus on or develop this space. Instead I developed my medical work
and to a lesser degree my spiritual psychological.
(Coming soon is a
return of my work called The Marriage of Souls. My wife and I will
start working, in Brazil, with couples and small groups.)
Finally Learning to Love Spending Time Being with 'God'
The other day, after 45 minutes of yoga, I went into the prime
state, to zero mind for an additional 45 minutes to achieve that
state of pure consciousness, that space of nothing and everything.
Like a bath...
One can submerge one's body in water and the rest of
one's self in a bath of pure consciousness, pure awareness.
Something so pure there is nothing left of the self.
Its like going
to the burning bush but the bush is burning between one's ears and
in one's heart.
I revisit this space many times during the day for short bursts of
prayer and silence. I am pushing myself further, finally, deeper
into this space and am beginning to feel its effect on me and I like
Some have said that 'God' is an answer to everything and I am
beginning to see the truth in that. But I do not think this applies
to a 'book God' or one's 'belief in God' or to 'a symbol of God'.
It is in the pureness that all of our impurities start to fade away.
It is in the pureness that we distance ourselves from those parts of
us that make pain for others and suffering for ourselves.
distance from our egos our minds calm down and we can begin to see
The price of course is love.
Love is the offering of Oneness,
the maintenance of Oneness,
and the work of creating Oneness.
True love is an epic romance with Oneness,
with love and with life itself.
Romance is essentially the dream of Oneness
and when pursued with all our heart, mind and
soul it becomes the seed feeling that has the
potential to grow into the deepest love.
Oneness is the ultimate goal of Love.
World of Separation
Everything in the world is driving us further and further apart into
the dangerous place of separation.
The divide is getting so great
that many think civil war will become more common around the world,
even in America where half the country hates the other.
"How to account for Americans being the most anxious, fearful, and
stressed-out people among the supposedly advanced nations?" asks
James Howard Kunstler.
"What if our beliefs, our thoughts
themselves are driving Americans insane? What if we have
engineered a society in which fantasy has so grotesquely
over-run reality that coping with daily life is nearly
"There is no coherent consensus about what
is happening and no coherent proposals to do anything about it."
"The burdens of empire, onerous global debt, population overshoot,
fracturing globalism, worries about energy, disruptive technologies,
ecological havoc, and the specter of climate change -
things that hurt to think about."
"The sense of gathering crisis persists. It is systemic and
existential. It calls into question our ability to carry on 'normal'
life much farther into this century, and all the anxiety that
attends it is so hard for the public to process that a dismaying
number of citizens opt for suicide," concludes Kunstler.
They say unhealthy diets now kill more people than tobacco and high
How many people do unhealthy thoughts kill?
How many people in the future will die from the
wrong answers, from lies, distortions of truth, from all the
propaganda and misplaced beliefs?
'God' as the Lord of Nature
Things are really getting out of hand in the world of ideas and thus
Science is being shredded and climate hysteria is
hitting the stratosphere as a cold reality sets in.
Next they will
be planning to move the earth further from the sun, or should we
move it closer now that a
Grand Solar Minimum is with us for the
next few decades.
Would you trust anyone with that decision?
Especially if there were no consensus among scientists?

These are good questions if you look at
some of the ideas being fielded in the press about
I like one crazy idea from yesterday,
"It will investigate radical
approaches such as refreezing the Earth's poles and removing CO2
from the atmosphere."
This year as in all years the poles are full
of ice so how can you refreeze something that is already frozen?
The big word today is fix. Lets fix the climate...
How do you fix the
sun, which is dimming?
The best the mainstream comes up with
already cooling world. When I was young my best friend
bemoaned the idea of 'God' but he believed in Nature as I do.
What is happening in Nature is happening with 'God', 'God's
will' so to
speak. Nature is one with 'God' and 'God' is certainly one with Nature.
It is no surprise, or shouldn't be, that
the elite rulers of our
world are not with 'God', certainly 'God' is not with them, even though
its true without 'God' (pure consciousness) we cannot stay alive for a
We are destroying our planet with poisons leaving a million species
What we are doing to ourselves is crashing human sperm
concentrations and creating sick populations that will not be able
to afford modern health care.
We are on the path to losing our
ability to reproduce but
the insects are going before us so things
are really turning against us. Maybe we can move to Mars but
probably they will install CAT scans and 5G technology there as
Men of 'God' are supposed to be prophetic. However, science

I enjoy being in
that sweet space between science and prophetic feelings that come
through really clearly when
ones heart (empathetic center) is open
to feel as opposed to think.
