There is a paradigm of reality where the world as we know it is perceived and experienced as Mind producing various thought-forms. Everything is a thought-form. The various thought-forms or creations have different bodies depending on the context of experience, yet the essence is the same – Mind stuff.

Last night, I watched a documentary on television called “Horizon” about how the dinosaurs became extinct. What, another explanation! A scientist was challenging the long held view that a meteor had hit earth at some point in time. She proposed that there were actually two meteors at different times, not just the one. One scientist, […]

I’m having a magical day. Actually, everyday is pure magic. I am sitting in a bookshop alternating between reading and snoozing. I feel the Silence all around me and within me. This Silence is magic. I am sitting near the Philosophy section. I marvel at the ideas that have originated from the Silence, from Plato […]

Spirituality: a scientific perspective

The scientific approach to spirituality as presented here by Mr. C. B. Basak shows there’s a natural efficiency in being kind to others. In terms of thermodynamics it makes more sense to let others be in peace than to disturb them while doing the work that needs to be done.

When I used to get home early, I used to watch a British TV soap called “Coronation Street.” There was a story line about a young woman called Karen, who had regretted attending her mother’s funeral and decided to make up for her past mistakes by being nice. It was such a contrast from the […]

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” (1 Corinthians 13: 11) I’m sure you all remember being a child, right? Your parents taught you about the world we live in, the […]

“Of course I’m lazy, I let God handle the details.” (Carson Attaway) “I can of mine own self do nothing.” (John 5: 30) Surrender, that dirty word. How does one surrender? How can I surrender to something I am not even sure exists? “Let go and let God!” Yeah, yeah, but how does it work […]

There comes a time in a girl’s life when she has to make a choice and stick to it. If you’ve read my stories, you probably know by now I’ve tried many different paradigms and truths. One truth that makes sense to me is that the world is a dream. I’ve had my fun and […]

Here is a plan for an equinox celebration for a group of people to hold outdoors – at the beach, park, in the mountains, or another space big enough wherever you live.

“One formula or concept of God should not and cannot be forced on all.” “First Source is connected to individuals not organizations.” (Wingmakers) At some point in time last night I felt intense queasiness. I mentioned this to my mother. I had a sip of water, got engrossed in what I was watching on television, […]

I’m here to learn, by teaching what I’ve chosen to believe. The teaching or demonstration itself is unavoidable, the belief is not. My perception depends on the cobwebs in my mind. Without a structure of ideas perception is impossible.

The bus stop where I usually catch my bus is on top of a hill. Sometimes I see people running up the hill just in time to catch the bus coming from behind. This morning, while I waited for my bus, I observed a man running up the hill. Is there a bus coming, I […]

I’m on a bus again…altogether now…..Not another bus story! I’m riding on a bus. I have my eyes closed. I am enjoying being in silence. Someone has just sat in front of me. He’s listening to his radio at full blast. I glare at him, willing him to turn the volume down or switch it […]

One decision I have struggled with is how to treat others. What is the loving thing to do? Do I put other people’s needs first, or do I focus on my own needs? I realise now that it depends on how one perceives reality. To cut a long story short, I now only take into […]

I love travelling by buses, dont you? Yesterday I had another “Eureka” moment on the bus. Here goes… I have come to the realisation that in every moment I have two choices: to express all that I am; or to sabotage all that I am. Whether I am going against what I represent or expressing […]

There are many people I admire, particularly those who have become self-realised. But there are two people who are head and shoulders above the rest. The first runner-up is………..Captain Katherine Janeway of the starship Voyager, part of the Star Trek sci-fi television series. I believe she is an excellent role model for leadership. I admire […]

“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. ” (Psalm 24: 1) You receive a letter notifying you that a distant relative has left you a huge inheritance in his will. You meet with the executor who asks you for proof of your identity. You produce your […]

“And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. ” (John 12: 45) Some kind soul has just pushed you over a cliff and you feel yourself falling. As you fall, you suddenly have a “knowing” that there is nothing at the bottom, you are falling for eternity. You have a thought: “If I’m […]

I’m not the keeper of my holy mind; the Holy Spirit is. It’s irresponsible of me to assume responsibility for thoughts that are not of God, and therefore are not real. I choose what I believe to be true, but only when my choice is made under the guidance of the Holy Spirit will it […]

It’s really late, just gone after 12 midnight and I’m listening to my mother trying to decide whether she should go to bed or not. She has a ritual where, if she has a snooze in the afternoon, she finds she stays awake till late. She is trying to recall whether she slept earlier, as […]

“There are two dominant models of existence that shape the interaction and destiny of the human race. These models of existence are: — The Evolution/Saviorship model — The Transformation/Mastership model” “In the case of the transformation/mastership model of existence, its principle tenets are that the entity is limitless, deathless, and sovereign.

I now send all my emails as blind copies. There are times though when I need to double-check whether I have missed out someone on the list, but I’ve already pressed “Send.” The problem with sending emails “blind” is that the names are not recorded on the sent copy. So what I usually do is […]
