In the beginning was Awareness.And the Awareness was like an ocean.The Ocean of Awareness was without form or without "things".... no divisions.... only Unity.There was and will always be, nothing but the Oceanic Awareness.And the Ocean of Awareness (the "God" of everything) , forever inquisitive, discovered how to pull themself into discreet parts, and the… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness – a continuing story…
Early on, in Greek thought and Oriental thought (Indian thought was a bit more complex), humans thought atoms were the smallest thing that existed (the word in several languages means or suggests "indivisible"). In the last century, we have moved through a number of deeper levels to smaller and smaller particles. In those early days… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness as the Source of All
i was raised in the Free Methodist church, and proud to be a son and grandson of Free Methodist church ministers. i believe that they were upright and honest men, teaching the truth as they understood it, to bring those in their church, to a better understanding of how to live.Unfortunately, like many other churches,… Continue reading A set of comments and replies on the Worldview taught by the Free Methodist church
i feel that a comparison is necessary between an "Awareness story", and the "Biblical story" which is widely accepted by modern religious folks, to show why a change of our thinking and perspective is even necessary..... The way the biblical story is interpreted in our modern times, there is a chasm between the "Creator" and… Continue reading Why is “Awareness is Father of all” different than “God is the father of all”?
Too often, science folks try to use ONLY the portion of reality called the "physical-seen world" to explain everything, but the physical world cannot explain the systems at play. It ends up being a tug of war/struggle between science and folks who believe there is more than just the physical world. Really unnecessary.... but in… Continue reading The illusion of a tug-of-war between Physical Science vs. the Extra-physical world

Dark matter, and Dark energy, and black holes are all examples of this “reaching beyond” the seen for explanations..... In religion, this is represented… Continue reading Divinity – a definition
One Essence, Many Forms For a lot of years, i have not used the word "spirit" and "spiritual" as terms in describing my worldview. The reason for this, is that these terms carry with them the sense of a separate realm from our physical existence. Spirit in one realm, and the physical universe in another… Continue reading One Essence, Many Forms
Quantum Monism seems to be some scientists method of saying that there is an underlying system to the universe(s??) The struggle of western science with admitting an underlying system, is truly only due to the creationist folks, (who take any sign of a "designer" as proof of an anthropomorphic "God", and then kidnap scientific information… Continue reading Quantum Monism – Aha!!
Below is the world view which i have concluded (for myself) is the way to see ourselves and our relationship to ourselves, each other, the universe, and Oneness: "Home" is “located” inside of "me", and inside of all beings and things, while that being has breath; while that thing has mass, and is in space… Continue reading Expanding our concepts of “God”
In my “inner research project” i am primarily interested in “our true nature”. So, my favourite question is: “what is left after all the illusory layers have been peeled away” (revealing what is left, which should be true nature).... and the question which arises from this is: “is metta truly naturally being revealed by this… Continue reading Is Loving-kindness (Metta) a natural part of our True Nature?
