The ironies and paradoxes run high and deep in mystical experience. Here is some of what I've experienced.
Did we live before this life? Many religions say so, secular minds often say no, but could there be validity to both?
Might our universe be the ongoing unfolding of a black (white) hole Singularity, or One? And might we be that One reflecting on its Self?
How could I write something that I did not write? Great question. I'm trying to figure that out too.
My ideas about the Divine have shifted in recent years as my spiritual practice has deepened. Here are some thoughts about how I currently interpret "God."
We often think that Jesus was the "only begotten," but was he the only one that God begat? What else was "born" from that divine Source?
We are not independent of nature, nor are we the cause of our self, but rather we arise in a deeper Source. That is our true Self.
God does not have to be at odds with what we learn from science. We need to reinterpret our ideas of God from direct mystical experience, and I think we'll find our science and spirituality are One.
A few short thoughts about my contemplative practice, and what it does for me, in me, revealing Spirit.
Is there "one true church," and if so, who or what is it?
