Possibly many folks look for answers, and then base their long term course, goals, and “Life… Continue reading Our sense of lostness is simply NOW calling us to return home – we must resolve those things which hinder us from living in NOW
Expanding our concepts of “God”

Original Mind – Part 2
From this premise of Original Mind being the ground of all, and that everything which exists is obviously rising from this original mind, the question of "getting lost" from the ground of our being arises. For myself, the parable of the Prodigal Son immediately comes to mind. But it comes to mind as an "Everyman's… Continue reading Original Mind – Part 2
