“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10) I remember the first time I experienced the Inner Light during meditation. I completely lost all sense of time/space/me-ness/you-ness and it just is. I had never felt such utter joy and bliss. I stayed in that space for ages. (It doesn’t seem right writing about […]

It’s Summer in the UK as in many parts of the world. It’s meant to be hot but it’s been quite cool over the last few weeks. I’ve been wearing cardigans; it was only a week ago when I tentatively put away my fleece jacket. Today feels really warm.

“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (Paul, 1 Corinthians 6;2) “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24) So there’s no time, right? How does this apply to my life? I am a practical type of person. […]

All my problems are the result of taking one tiny mad idea seriously: that I could be separate from God – the only reality. This thought of separation gave rise to the illusion of the ego, which seems to have a mind of its own, but it’s only a tiny part of the mind, filled […]

“I am the LORD, I change not.” (Malachi 3:6) “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.” (Jesus, Mark 4: 22) I was speaking recently to a friend that sometimes I feel like I’m a completely different person from the one […]

Have you ever tried seeing people as who they really are? Yesterday on the bus I tried to see people as whole. Now this is a tricky one since I’m so used to seeing others 2-dimensionally i.e. either from the front or the back. I also have another way of seeing as I’ve got double-vision […]

“But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” (St Paul, 1 Corinthians 13: 10) A famous Hollywood actor goes to see a casting director for a screen test. The director tells him he doesn’t need to do the test as the movie’s in the bag. […]

Last week, I decided to walk to all my destinations. By the end of each day I had walked about 8 miles. One thing that struck me was I wasn’t tired at all. One evening just as I was getting closer to home I had a thought that I hadn’t gone on my walks for […]

“But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil.” (Jesus, Matthew 5: 39) “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. ” (Zechariah 4:6) I was on my way home from the west end in London. I hopped on a bus. I chose a seat next to […]

Hello all Had a wonderful day yesterday. (Every day is wonderful!) The morning started off special – I stayed in bed…breakfast cereal…bed…made a sandwich…bath and then off to the west end. I had a thought of Krishna and wondered whether I should go and take part in their Sunday feast at their temple. Then I […]

Yesterday I was sitting in a library when a woman came up to me and said “I’ve just been thinking about you, this is amazing!” I realised I knew her from university. We actually had a brief encounter two years back when we chatted for a while. She was pregnant at the time. She was […]

Yesterday I met a baby on the bus. I knew that there was a reason why I was drawn to play with her. I spoke to her grandmother and she mentioned that the baby was allergic to wheat. I asked her how she knew the baby was allergic and she said the baby comes up […]

Every day I’m being reminded that all is Mind. I am sitting on a gold mine. It takes being aware, super-conscious, in order that one can truly inherit the “Kingdom.” I am remembering that God-consciousness is knowing that God is Mind, Mind being another synonym for God that is all Good. Thus I do not […]

Consciousness is all there is. There is only the One Consciousness appearing which is unchanging, eternal and all Good. When Consciousness is appearing as a state, it is in constant flux. In truth, only Consciousness that is eternal and unchanging is Real; Consciousness that is in flux is illusory in nature. Let me clarify what […]

So you go to your doctor and you’re asked what your problem is. “Doctor,” you sigh. “I have no smiles left in me.” “What do you mean? Smiles cannot be measured.” “I’m telling you the truth doctor, I have no smiles left.”

Recently, I had a vision. I saw myself as this huge dark amorphous form. I saw that as this form I exist in all but my presence cannot be discerned by the physical senses. The words that came to mind were “dark-matter.” I am Dark-Matter. Wow physicists have something here! I thought.

“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1: 3) I’m doing what I do best, can you guess what? Going for another walk, what else! I’m exploring the local marshes and scrubs. There is a secret garden with wonderful flowers. It’s like a maze […]

A while ago I had a dialogue with Spirit about something I thought was taking a while to manifest. I lamented over how I was sick of waiting. I’ve put so much effort into what I’ve been doing. I’ve worked so damn hard! Whine, whine, whine!

I’m on the bus on the way into town. I’m practising seeing energetically. Whenever I look at anyone or thing, I ‘see’ energy flowing through my eyes. There’s a man sitting in front of me. I’m staring at the back of his neck. The man shifts slightly then he scratches his neck.

Have you ever read a book and interpreted it in one way? You speak to someone else who has read the same book and he gives you a different interpretation based on his world view. You might go back to the book and actually see where he’s coming from. As you experience life or your […]

It’s a hot and sweltering day in London. I have to pop out early to run an errand for my mother. I try to avoid the heat and walk on the side of the road that has shade. Still no respite. My tee-shirt is already damp. I wish for a lovely breeze. I feel gentle […]

I once heard this woman opera singer whose voice was so powerful that it shattered a glass nearby. If the human voice can do this imagine what it’s like to have a frequency infinitely more powerful. This frequency exists. It is what I call “God frequency” and within all of us. I’ve been hearing this […]

So you have taken over my thoughts, Released me from judgment of good and evil. Now thoughts shall no longer return to me void (1). You have taken over my sense of self And left me feeling like nothing, Some exchange – Nothing for everything! So you have taken over my being And in your […]

I am Self. I am called by many names: Inner Silence, Inner Voice, God, Spirit, Love but on this occasion I will only answer to Self. So you have surrendered to me, Self, and realised that I Am in all. You are like a baby who is totally dependent on her parents or guardians and […]

One might well ask whether our thoughts are real. If they are not real, it’s no problem to see them change in the course of time, true to the fleeting nature of dreams. If they are real, however, they cannot change at all and will last forever, true to the changeless nature of reality. If […]

I am on one of my long evening strolls. I have been pondering over something I’ve been expecting which has not yet materialised and wondering whether it is deliberately being withheld. I am in a bit of a strop. I’m thinking furiously until…the thoughts are abruptly silenced.

Why do we pray to have more love or for love to pour through us? Love is all there is. We cannot do anything without God since all is in God. As St Paul puts it: “There is no power but of God.” (Romans 13: 1) We cannot think but God’s thoughts. It is only […]

Illusions have to be forgiven at the level on which they seemingly occur. That’s why enlightenment cannot be postponed to some kind of afterlife. It has to happen while one is still being tempted to judge appearances as real. The mind cannot let go of illusions to which it’s not being exposed.

A Demonstration of Omnipresence

Many people often wonder about the omnipresence of God. Can Infinity be divided? Have we got God fragments? How does Oneness work? I say we all know how this works as it is demonstrated all the time around us but we act as if we don’t. Time for an example.
