“Grace is the completely unexpected goodness of divine Love manifesting itself in our lives, often at the most unexpected moment. Some people call it “miracle” which is a word we use when we do not understand the perfect laws governing the nonmaterial sphere of being. “I bless myself in my understanding that in a universe…

When the Rich Invest in Racial Equity

When the Rich Invest in Racial Equity

 “The non-dual spirituality of today is necessarily service-oriented. If my neighbor is myself, I cannot just state this in front of my private altar and let it stay there. If spirituality is worth its salt, it will be concerned with some form of active service to the world. Together, we will heal this world or destroy…

Blessing as a Form of Service

Blessing as a Form of Service

In one of the most powerful passages on oneness in world spiritual literature, the prophet Isaiah describes service as the ultimate path to enlightenment and the source of real health (the words whole, holy and healthy stem from the same root):  “Is not this the fast that I have chosen?

The Vision that Grounded my Life

Love is who you are

by Pierre Pradervand Many years ago, I was attending in Ouhigouya (Burkina-Faso in the Sahel) the board meeting of the largest grass roots peasant-farmer movement in Africa, of which I was a founding member. The last day of the meeting I contracted dysentery and as at the time I was following a path of pure…

I Am

As long as you believe that the God you seek is hidden up there in the sky, As long as you believe that your salvation is to be found in religions, sects, gurus or others, As long as you believe that you are too small to forgive yourself and that and only God can do…

Excerpt from Falling into Grace by Adyashanti (2013)

“In essence, grace is anything that helps us truly open – our minds, our bodies, our emotions, our hearts. Sometimes grace is soft and beautiful. It appears as insight. It comes as a sudden understanding, or maybe just the blossoming of our hearts, the breaking open of our emotional bodies in a deeper way, so…

Duality is an illusion, only oneness exists

Everything you see, feel, touch, hear or think comes from and manifests in pure Consciousness. Time and space emerge from pure consciousness. Your body and that of millions of other human beings, as well as trees, animals, rivers originate from and appear in this pure consciousness. When you understand that all that exists is the…

In the scientific community, the lack of scientific understanding about the nature of consciousness and from where it emerges is commonly referred to as the ‘hard’ problem. The standard view of science is that consciousness is an epiphenomenon of the body—meaning it arises as a result of the anatomy, complexity, and wiring of the brain.…

Friendship

This is based on the Koranic verse yuhibbuhum wa yuhibbuhunah (God loves them and they love Him, 5:45), which is interpreted by the Sufis as meaning that it is God’s love for us that gives rise to our love for Him. Fakhruddin Iraqi,…

The Atheism of Material Power

Excerpt from – Awakening Mystical Consciousness,  Chapter 1  By Joel S. Goldsmith The life of God is my life and yours; the soul of God is my soul and yours; the Spirit of God is my spirit and yours; the very selfhood of God is my selfhood and your selfhood, and that means we are…

The Might of Love’s Tenderness

Pierre Pradervand The seashell called angel wing is delicate and exquisitely beautiful.

This Life is Joy

“The Infinite is the source of joy!” (Chandogya Upanishad 7.23) There is a mighty rushing river of deep Joy at the center of all life. Oh yes, there is also a roller-coaster ride of pleasure and pain at the surface of human experience. Yet transcending this is a Joy that is the very effervescence of…

Reverence for All Life

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965).

Dualism and Non Dualism

(Oneness of all things) One can probably say that well over 90 per cent of religions and spiritual paths in the world are dualistic in nature.
