Our experience of life is somewhat like a game of ping pong. Someone says something to us that we perceive as negative, and a certain “I” pops up that we identify with. The content of that “I” then directs our […]
Real achievement — the true measure of how far we have advanced in life — is not determined by what we have acquired, but rather by the degree to which we have put our fears behind us.
Fear is what happens to us whenever we forget that the One who created us fears nothing. True courage is remembering this Truth and then daring to act upon it in the face of a fear. There is no other […]

We must strive to be ever mindful of the company we keep, for by these same sources is our Soul nourished and sustained and subsequently taught to evolve or degenerate, brought into the Light or the darkness, and at last […]
It is we who suffer the darkness of our own doubts — and needlessly so — if only we would dare plumb the depths of all that God has prepared for us to see…and be.
Preparation, hard work, is part of perfecting whatever you’ve imagined you want to attain in this world. But there is a world beyond anything we can imagine; it is an intelligent presence, a “place” of powers and principles whose self-obliterating […]

Life does not come at us from the outside in, even though that is the way we’ve always seen it. Naturally enough, our behavior is based on what our mind identifies as the cause of the problem. We keep fighting […]
Question: Could you comment on maintenance of the physical body? Is it as important as the internal self? Answer: Natural, balanced physical health is essential — in particular at certain points along the way — to your spiritual development. Eat […]
We must love God more than we long to have the experience of His love, for Real Love does not fit into the human heart: it surrounds and envelops it as does the sweet apple its seed, keeping it safe, […]

Here’s a short poem… The self-teacher is the self-cheater. What does that mean? It means that if we teach ourselves what the lessons are that come our way, we cheat ourselves of what they have brought us. All life lessons […]
There is no greater, more reliable teacher of true self-knowledge than intentional patience and, when married to a willingness to observe oneself through the stillness and sacrifice that such patience demands, there exists no swifter, more sure path to self-realization.
Question: Are we (as students) in any relationship in the moment with the spirit of past teachers when we have a relationship or connection with a living master? Answer: The whole point of any true teacher or teaching is that […]
