My dear friends...

A question: Did Conversations with God do for your spiritual life what it did for mine? The 9 books in the dialogue series did more than simply alter my ideas about God. They gave me tools -- powerful insights that I have used to build new approaches to age-old problems.

 

I was so excited about it that the first thing I wanted to do was share the CWG messages with everybody. I knew how much they meant to me, and I could only imagine what...

Secret of happy relationships

My dear friends...

I spoke in this space last time about the fact that loneliness is the biggest social issue on our planet today. I said that we’ve been living in a world of increasing isolation, where extended families have been disappearing and the opportunities for closeness with others have been vanishing. The sudden rise and almost addictive use of social networking sites on the Internet by millions around the globe is, without doubt, humanity’s collective compensatory...

Vulnerable, close, and naked

My dear friends...

We have been discussing in this space something that I have called The Holy Experience. And this week I want to share with you that I observe the quality of my life increasing exponentially when I am willing to be vulnerable, close, and naked—as opposed to being totally invulnerable, closed off, and always having my backside covered.

I find that when I am close to another, I am close to myself. I find that when I am ready to share intimacy, authenticity, the Real...

Do you have discipline?

My dear friends...

We have been exploring here what I have called The Holy Experience, and how to create it in one’s life. There are a number of tools that I have found with which one may do this, and over the past many weeks we have been exploring them one by one. Last week we looked at Tool #10, Service. Today, we invite you to pick up the tool of Discipline.

I see this tool being used in two ways. First, as a means of forming and shaping my own day-to-day experience of life, so...

Who are you serving today?

My dear friends...

We have been exploring here what I have called The Holy Experience, and how to create it in one’s life. There are a number of tools that I have found with which one may do this, and over the past many weeks we have been exploring them one by one. This week, a look at Tool #10: Service & Discipline.

When I was a younger man I had a great sadness. A woman with whom I was engaged to be married decided that she didn’t want to marry me after all. She broke off...

Make a Ritual of Ritual

My dear friends...

Last week we discussed in this space Movement as a tool in the creation of The Holy Experience. We also promised that this week we would explore yet one more tool: Ritual. Let’s look at that now.

The dictionary defines ritual as a series of actions or type of behavior regularly and invariably followed by someone, often according to a prescribed order.

Rituals are patterns of ordered living. By their nature they move us into non-awareness by their autonomic forms....

Moveliness is Holiness

My dear friends...

Last week we discussed in this space Movement as a tool in creating The Holy Experience in one’s life. I said that however you employ it, the tool of Movement has been known to produce significant benefit. Not only, as may seem obvious, physical toning and shaping, but metaphysical sharpening and opening as well. We’ll continue this week by saying that the above is true because Movement is about agitating energy. It is stirring the pot of the primal soup. It is...

Physical Movement is a Tool

My dear friends...


We’ve been discussing the various tools that I have discovered have given us as a pathway to what I call The Holy Experience. I would like to continue this exploration today with a look at the tool that I call “Movement.”

From the beginning of human experience our species has intuitively understood that Movement was somehow an important tool in both living a good life and connecting with an Essence larger than themselves.

It is no coincidence that...

Letting go of Expectation

My dear friends...

We’ve been discussing the tool of Visualization in this space as one of the many instruments life has given us as a pathway to The Holy Experience. I wanted to conclude that discussion today with a final note about this particular metaphysical device.

In my experience this is an important part of the process—perhaps the most important part: let go of all expectations, demands, or requirements.

In other words, do not sit back and begin to get impatient if or...

The best movie you ever saw

My dear friends...

We’ve been discussing the tool of Visualization in this space as one of the many instruments life has given us as a pathway to The Holy Experience, and last week we explored how the process works, metaphysically, very much like putting the pieces of a puzzle together.

Now, let’s take a look at a simple technique that I have used to employ the process of Visualization in my life. The process itself is used, of course, as one tool in the creation of the life...
