“But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” -Matthew 6:6 I wanted to expand on the post I made yesterday in regards to meditation. Now, instead of attempting to explain the Hebrew myself I’m […]

WEDDING AT CANA

INTRODUCTION I’m going to dive into some really meaty bits of the Gospel of John here. Now this is the most mystical interpretation of Christ we have in our popular canon of today. As such, John reads as a sort of spirit manual intent on helping initiates understand the mystery within, or how Christ transforms […]

What Defines Spirituality

Happy Easter to one and all. This is a video I did a while back that dives into the heart of mystical practice and offers a brief overview of various schools of thought on the journey within. I’ve taken a very middle of the road approach here and attempted to generalize as much as humanly […]

THE RED DEATH OF 2020

SOCIAL MEDIA VS. SCIENTIFIC FACT I wandered into my local grocery store yesterday to pick up chipotle salsa and vegetables for my rice. I had assumed it would be a quick 10 minute trip in and out. NOPE. My local Fiesta had lines backed down every aisle. Even the express lanes snaked through the produce […]

JUSTIFIED BY GRACE

FOUNDATION IN CHRIST “I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, listens to my words, and ACTS on them. That one is like a person building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when the flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake […]

Having considered myself to be a deeply spiritual and well rounded person I wasn’t prepared for the impact Osho would have on my line of thinking, at all. Here this man was taking concepts I knew and turning them upside down […]

GROWING PAINS

Some of the most profound lessons a person can learn don’t come from living this pristine and deeply spiritual life 24/7. No. Some of the greatest lessons we learn come from how well we fail in life. The trick is recognizing the opportunity to grow through what we go through in the moment rather than […]

DIVINE CONNECTION

INTERCONNECTEDNESS All to often we human beings suffer from a feeling of disconnectedness and loneliness. Entire volumes have been written on depression and the effect isolation has on our psyches. Anyone who has ever battled with the darker episodes of life has struggled to maintain a feeling of adequacy. It’s easy to feel like we […]

DIVINE WISDOM

MY SPIRITUAL PATH So many of us struggle with spirituality. We tend to shy away from the conversation and downplay our own beliefs out of fear of offending one another. Most of our society has renounced religion altogether and has taken a more modern approach to morality that relies heavily on philosophy. While this 21st […]

MIND OF A MYSTIC

DEFINITION Mysticism: (1) the experience of mystical union or direct communion with ultimate reality reported by mystics. (2) the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (such as intuition or insight). The idea of having a mystical experience seems incredibly magical to most of us […]
