Frequently Asked Questions for those who are more spiritual than religious

From our perspective FAQ’s are really Frequently Answered Questions dressed up as Frequently Asked Questions. Your questions are important to us because that means you are actively searching for answers that will help lead you to the truth of who you are so you can master your human experience.

This page also includes Infrequently Asked Questions — those questions that are rarely asked, but highly relevant for connecting with that part of you that neuroscientists call your Deeper Self, psychologists call your True Self, and spiritual teachers and philosophers call your Divine Self or True Essence. These questions – and answers – follow the routinely asked FAQ’s.

How would you define God?

God is the Eternal Presence, the Infinite Isness, the One Reality, the Universal Source of all that is manifest and unmanifest. God is Love. God is Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omniactivity. God is the Ground of all being and nonbeing.

God is not a white-bearded, white robed anthropomorphic deity in the sky who punishes ‘sinners’ and rewards the obedient. Nor does God pull a new car off of a celestial parking lot and send it to us, or a diamond ring from a cosmic jewelry counter and see that we get it, or withdraw a million dollars from a celestial bank account and deposit it in our earthly checking account.

What is Metaphysical Bible Interpretation?

Metaphysical Bible Interpretation means seeing people, places, things, and events that happen ‘out there’ as human qualities, talents, and abilities – as well as faults – within us. It takes Biblical stories and events beyond their literal interpretation by providing more allegorical, esoteric, and metaphorical perspectives to uncover the hidden wisdom and spiritual teachings contained therein. We hope you will find these translations meaningful, stimulating, and enlightening.

Was Jesus the Only Begotten Son of God?

The historical Jesus was born of Mary, came from Nazareth, and became our Way Shower. He represents that aspect of us that comprehends our divinity and works toward becoming consciously one with our Christ Nature. He perfectly understood His divine nature, fully demonstrated His innate divine potential, and completely fulfilled His divine purpose on Earth. He fully realized he was God expressing in human form and saw everyone he met as God expressing in human form.

He was, as are we, a spiritual being having a human experience. He was tested in the same ways that all of us are tested, but He transcended any and all sense addictions and opened the way to self-mastery, to a conscious oneness with God. He became consciously one with the Indwelling Christ which is the Only Begotten Son of God. Jesus’ life represents what each of us is destined to become – a Christed being who realizes we are a Christed being. The spiritual journey of Jesus is the same as our spiritual journey.

To fully comprehend what Jesus’ teachings mean, we must interpret His identity both historically and metaphysically. If the Christ as Jesus is truly to serve as our Way Shower, as our model for living the enlightened life, we must see Him as not just an incredible Exception when it comes to individualizing His Christ Nature, but as an Example for what we can all achieve.

What do you think Jesus meant when He said: “He who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do (John 14:12).”

Jesus audaciously insisted that whatever He had done, each of us can do. He reminded us of that many times. His statement is absolutely central to our transformation, because it assures us that we can experience the same spiritual insights that He experienced. He promised us conscious communion with our God essence if we will search the spiritual depths within ourselves as He did. He  encouraged us to follow His way and discover the secrets of our inner selves – the Christ as us – as He discovered the Christ as Himself.

Who are we and what is our True Nature?

We are the Eternal Presence expressing through the Planetary Christ as us. That means we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our personality, the human part of us, is the external us. Because our personality expresses itself in so many ways, we can have a difficult time identifying who we are. Our current personality does not define the essential us. Our True Self, our Authentic Self is the Christ within.

We are composed of spirit (the divine us), soul (the mental and emotional us), and body (the physical us). Our spirit is our true identity and the more we identify with our spiritual self, the closer we are to answering “Who are we?”

Should we take the Bible literally?

The Bible is the most complete, unadulterated, uncensored, absolutely telling, uncannily relevant, and highly revealing story of the evolving consciousness of our divine origins.

As the best-selling book in history, virtually everyone who has read it has an opinion. Some argue for the inerrancy of the Bible, stating that it is God’s Word and should absolutely be taken literally in every detail. Others see it merely as a collection of moral anecdotes. If we study the Bible as religious history only, the richer inner reality is lost. We fail to see it as an idealistic portrayal of our own spiritual development.

Clearly, for those of us willing to look past its literal meaning, the Bible is the story of our own personal evolution in consciousness. It is an allegory of our journey toward enlightenment. It details how we were created with divine potential, how we have misplaced our divine heritage and, most importantly, how we can find it again.

Because the Bible was written by people with spiritually illuminated minds, we can see that unfoldment only to the extent that we allow Spirit to illumine our own minds. For example, the wonderful phrase: “Let there be light,” found in the first chapter of Genesis, sets the tone for the entire Bible. In order to discover the layers of meanings of the Bible, we have to bring deeper, more metaphysical light to them. Spiritual ideas can only be discerned spiritually.

In Genesis, humanity is conceived and brought forth in innocence, unaware of its divine nature. In the 21st Century we, too, are conceived and brought forth in innocence, unaware of our divine nature. The Garden of Eden in which Adam and Eve were placed represents the state of consciousness where we know we are one with God and receive unconditional good. Like Adam and Eve, we can choose to fall from innocence, disregard our oneness with God, and go our materialistic way. We go into the Garden of Eden every time we are aware of our oneness with the Eternal Presence called God.

Much of the Hebrew Testament is the story of the children of Israel, symbolic of us, in their struggle to find the Promised Land. Breaking their bondage to the Egyptians (who represent our unawareness of our Christ Nature) is really our story. Like the Israelites we struggle to break our bondage to our human shortcomings so that we can journey into spirit. We, too, have wandered in the desert (lack consciousness) looking for our home. Our desert is the barren wasteland of self-nullifying thinking which we struggle to eliminate as we seek to reconnect with our Christ Nature.

The Hebrew Testament prophets represent our spiritual thoughts which warn us, teach us, and direct us. The Israelites’ constant disregard of the prophets’ revelations perfectly reflects us each time we turn our backs on that still, small voice that so often speaks to us. Every story, event, character and symbol in the Bible represents a state of awareness in us as we look for the promised land (Kingdom of God) so we can reunite with our spiritual home.

The New Testament calls for graduation from the elementary school of spiritual awareness outlined in the Hebrew Testament. The New Testament shows a new way rather than obeying the strict letter of the law. It encourages us to become consciously one with the Extraordinary Us, our Christ Nature.

So the Bible takes us from Adam to Jesus, from an unenlightened human consciousness to an enlightened Christ Consciousness. Viewed this way, the Bible is one great epic quest. It is the evolution of our evolving Christ Consciousness. It is a journey we all must make, and the scriptures tell us how to do it. The Bible, both Hebrew and New Testaments, is more than a “Good Book.” It is a spiritual how-to manual.

When I die, how do I know if I’ll go Heaven – or Hell?

Absolutely not! Heaven and hell are states of consciousness. There is no geographical location where streets are paved with gold, people play harps, and St. Peter stands sentinel at a pair of pearly gates deciding who may enter. Nor is there a geographical location ruled by a red-garbed being with horns, tail and pitchfork, where people scream in agony and are tortured endlessly in eternal flames.

The notions of this kind of heaven and hell have been popular for centuries. If you happen to have been brought up in a traditional mainstream Christian home, chances are these ideas were passed on to you at a very early age. If they were, and if they are still your dominant impressions of heaven and hell… suspend this belief for a bit and stay open to what may be a new idea to you.

One of Jesus’ primary teachings is that the kingdom of God is within. Not somewhere in the sky…but right inside of us. “For behold, the Kingdom of God is in the midst of you.” Jesus spent much time spinning parables and weaving metaphors about heaven. Yet there is not one word in the more than one hundred references that He made to heaven where Jesus describes it as a physical place “out there.”

What about hell? Hell, like heaven, is a state of mind. And it, like heaven, is within us. So where did we get the idea of an eternal hell fire? The word hell is not a correct translation from the original language of the New Testament, which was Greek…The “hell” referred to in the Gospels represents the word gehenna, which was in a valley southwest of Jerusalem, where the refuse and filth of the city was burned. It was actually the city dump in Jesus’ day. It was a smoky, smelly, gruesome place.

Centuries earlier it was even worse! Certain idol-worshipping kings of Israel practiced appalling religious rites in this same place, sacrificing children in the fires. The region was called the Valley of Hinnom, which means “groans and anguish.” A perfect name for such a grisly site, don’t you think?

Gehenna became legendary as a place of human suffering and eternal fire. When Jesus and his contemporaries spoke of what we now call “hell,” they were not referring to some underworld of eternal fire. They were referring to that valley, using it as a metaphor for what happens inside of us, in our souls, when we go through inner torments because we forsake our oneness with Spirit.

When will the Judgment Day come?

Along with heaven and hell, we usually hear the term judgment day. That’s the day we supposedly will all be taken before God, who will render the final judgment as to whether we go “up” or “down.” Is there a judgment day? You bet there is. But it’s not where, what, or when most people think it is.

Judgment day takes place each time you set a cause into motion. If you are responsible for some wrong action of any kind, you are “punished” by the deed itself. Your own thoughts, choices and deeds are continually creating consequences (judgments), for or against us. No one escapes the Day of Judgment, because it  takes place every time we have a thought or take an action.

Is the Devil real?

Satan is not an anthropomorphic, malefic being enticing us into a sinful life. Satan is the lower human nature in all of us. It is the divinity-denying self of us that tempts us to do things we know are not for our highest good. Satan is our  selfish, paranoid, devious egocentric nature that motivates us to forsake our God-Self.

Satan is not a being dressed in red, sporting a pitch fork and tail. Satan is not a being at all. Satan is the purely human tendency to consciously forsake the divinity within us through our error thoughts, intentions, choices, and actions. It is that aspect of us that purposefully chooses to give power to outer appearances instead of going to the Source of our good – our Divine Nature, the Christ of us.
Back to List of FAQs

We are all condemned because of Original Sin, right?

Well, sorta kinda! But not in the way mainstream religions define it. In the first place, we are not miserable sinners. We are spiritual beings, born as original blessings, made in the image and after the likeness of the Eternal Presence. The God-seed indwells in each and every one of us whether we are aware of it or not.

The concept of original sin is a human invention that originated from our own  insecurities. It is a deliberate manipulative ploy to denigrate our innate divinity and create a ‘curse’ that falsely labels us as unworthy sinners. ‘Sin’ is an archery term. It means ‘missing the mark (the bulls eye).’ We miss the mark (sin) every time we deny our innate divinity.

God is a loving Presence. The God expressing Itself as us does not “judge” our sins or punish us for our sins. God doesn’t have to. We are not punished for our sins; we are punished by them. We live in a spiritual universe, governed by spiritual laws and we are always reaping what we have sown.

Sin is “living under a false sense of separation from God.” It is a false sense of separation because we cannot actually be separated from God. God’s Omnipresence underwrites the life that pulsates in, as and through us. Whenever we do something that is in disharmony with our Christ Nature we miss the mark (sin). We miss the mark whenever we choose a selfish, self-aggrandizing thought, word, or action over a Christed thought, word, or action.

Our human nature doesn’t cause our error thinking, choosing, and behaving – it is our lack of human nurture that contributes to our missing the mark. Why? Because, by nature we are the Eternal Presence in human clothing.

When is the Second Coming?

The Second Coming of Christ is not some external cataclysmic, historical event in the future. The Second Coming is a highly personal, inside-out process of spiritual realization. It signals our conscious awareness of the Christ presence within us.

In other words, when the awareness of the Christ within “dawns” on our conscious awareness, the Second Coming has taken place. The Second Coming is a possibility in each present moment – a possibility in each one of us as we awaken to our innate divine nature.

The Second Coming is the realization that we are the Christ expressing at the point of us. It is us, and not the Christ, who comes because the Christ is already present in us.

Do affirmations really work?

In a word, yes! Neuroscientists tell us that when we hear the same words, and repeat the same words, and think the same thoughts often enough, they become grooved in our consciousness and rewire our brain’s neurostructures. The brain does not simply gather and stockpile information as a computer’s hard drive does.

Is speaking in tongues necessary for spiritual growth?

Speaking in tongues symbolizes our ability to communicate deeper meanings of hidden truths. It means we can communicate esoteric truths, metaphorical truths, mystical truths, cabalistic truths, theosophical truths, and metaphysical truths in such a way that people can understand them.

In fundamental religious circles, people who “speak in tongues” do so in an incomprehensible language that seems to have great personal meaning. This mysterious “glassolalia experience” has been well-documented and continues to be practiced today in fundamental faith traditions. However, researchers who have studied glossolalia extensively have not found linguistic evidence that any form of language is being spoken. Rather, people loosely string together and repeat familiar phonetic sounds.

What is the metaphysical meaning of the cross?

The cross Jesus bore and the cross we bear is physicality. It is our human experience. As spiritual beings who have chosen a human experience we have settled for limitation and duality instead of limitlessness and conscious oneness with the Eternal Presence. The cross is a symbol of our skin school matriculation. Its cross bar represents human consciousness, what we call coma consciousness. The vertical bar represents Spirit’s descent into matter.

Jesus’ crucifixion atoned for our sins, right?

In Christian theology Jesus’s sacrifice is taken to mean the atonement for our sins  and to make salvation possible for all believers. Metaphysically, to be crucified means to cross out error from our mortal consciousness. Every time we cross out error we come closer to consciously realizing our true nature which is divine.
Back to List of FAQs

Do you have to be baptized to be saved?

Rather than being a ritual formally endorsed by the church baptism as an intrinsically personal experience that occurs within us. The baptism of water was the baptism of John. Jesus’ method was spiritual baptism. John baptized with water, but Jesus the Christ baptized with the Holy Spirit. Spiritual baptism occurs when we are bathed in the awareness that we are one with God.

When we cleanse our consciousness of error thoughts and inclinations we are baptized. Every time we pull ourselves out of the illusion of our separation from Spirit we experience a baptism. Each time we raise a worldly thought to its spiritual essence we are baptized. When we lift ourselves out of the negativity of the moment we are baptized. Baptism is not so much of an event as it is a process of spiritual unfoldment.

What does it mean to be born again?

The phrase “born again” is referring, in a very real sense, to a kind of spiritual obstetrics. Metaphysically speaking, being ‘born again’ means transcending sense attachments or moving beyond material appetites. It means to adopt a consciousness that is not tied to the world of appearances. It means realizing that there is no separation between us and Spirit.

Why is communion necessary for spiritual growth?

In the traditional sense, wine represents blood, and blood represents life. From a spiritual perspective, wine is symbolic of the life of God coursing through our bodies. Bread represents the body of Christ, and this in turn is representative of divine substance. Communion can be observed through prayer and meditation. Since communion is concerned with aligning ourselves with our God essence, it represents a spiritual practice that becomes a way of life.

What does the virgin birth mean?

Metaphysically speaking, a virgin birth occurs every time a new truth dawns on us, while we are in a high spiritual state of consciousness. The virginity represents the undefiled and purified stillness of mind in us that gives birth (we become consciously aware of) to the Christ Pattern within us.
Back to List of FAQs

Why is Communion necessary for spiritual growth?

We are saved each time we have a Christed thought, make a Christed choice, and take a Christed action. Salvation is the process through which we personally transform our consciousness from a materialistic focus to a spiritual focus – thought by thought, intention by intention, choice by choice, action by action. When we do that we are saved. We are working out our own salvation!

When the secular velocity of materialistic choices trumps spiritual discernment, soul growth is usually slowed and blunted. The effects of discordant thinking and acting create incongruencies in body, mind, and soul which increase the speed of our inevitable collision with our own shallowness. We must slow our secular velocity enough to speed up our spirituality. When we do that we are saved.
Back to List of FAQs

How powerful is the Anti-Christ?

The Anti-Christ is not a satanic personage that is out to get our souls. The Anti-Christ is our error-filled thoughts elevated to a discordant belief system that refuses to acknowledge our oneness with the Christ of us. An anti-Christ mentality sees separation, breeds separation, and leads to a life of unnecessary isolation from Spirit.

Anti-Christs are the ideas that come from the shadow side of our human nature. Most people equate beings like Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, etc. as incarnations of the Anti-Christ. The truth is that each one of us demonstrates Anti-Christ behavior whenever we purposefully, by thought or action, oppose Christ’s teachings.

What happens to us after we die?

We take what we bring and what we’ve given. That is to say, at our transition we take the consciousness we’ve developed in this existence to our next assignment and add that ‘skin school’ experience to our evolving soul consciousness. Our “composite self” is given its next assignment so we can continue in our soul growth. We use the word transition instead of death because the idea of death contradicts the very teachings of the Christ as Jesus. He said if we believe in Him we shall never die. We take that promise literally. We believe that means if we honor our oneness with our Christ Nature, we will keep our life vibration above the level of disintegration called death.

What about other Faith traditions?

We believe in freedom for people in matters of faith. The essence of any religion is the consciousness of God. We believe there are seeds of truth in all the world’s religions. Different faith traditions are like spokes on a wheel with the hub being God. They may be set apart by a variance of beliefs and approaches, but they are all seeking the One God at the hub of all life.

Infrequently Answered Questions — Going Deeper

Did Jesus teach reincarnation?

The Biblical story where Jesus identifies John the Baptist as the reincarnation of Elijah the prophet is one of the clearest statements which Jesus made concerning reincarnation: “For all the prophets and the law have prophesied until John. And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who was to come.” Matthew 11:13-14. In that passage, Jesus clearly identifies John the Baptizer as the reincarnation of Elijah. And in Matthew 17:10-13 and Mark 9:9-13 Jesus reiterates it.

By the way, reincarnation is not a necessary condition for our spiritual growth. It is a skin school experience we choose because we still believe in separation and duality. What makes the skin school experience such a magnet is our attachments to materiality. Each reincarnation experience is our chance to matriculate through the illusions we spin.

Our repeated physical rebirths will continue until we outgrow our attachments to bling, flings, and things. Essentially, reincarnations are reiterations of our not getting it.

Reincarnation is only one of the portals we choose to experience human form. Another choice is incarnation from another dimension of being. When we reincarnate we’ve more than likely been here before – probably many times before. When we incarnate we come here for the first time from another dimension of being in the multiverse. Whether we’re here through reincarnation (reimbodiment) or incarnation (embodiment) the answer is the same: we’ve chosen physicality and its limitations over universality and its endless foreverness.

Why is there so much suffering?

Why do we suffer? Here’s our answer. Are you ready? We suffer because we believe we are separate from God. And because we believe we are separate from God, we believe we are separate from one another. And because we deny our oneness with one another, we give power to outer appearances that reinforce our belief in our separateness from God. That sequence of warped mind action which denies our own divinity and the divinity of others is the cause of all suffering.

Suffering is human spiritual unfoldment calibrated to its lowest possible setting. Most of us are filled with warehouses of repressed emotions which become lactic limitations that slow our spiritual growth.

What do metaphysicians mean by chemicalization?

Chemicalization is caused by new spiritual insights that create cognitive dissonance which upsets old patterns of thinking, being, and doing. It sends us into inner turmoil (turbulence), a time of questioning, soul searching, and finally into an enlightened perspective. Chemicalization is ‘spiritual Alka Seltzer.’ It settles the rough and tumble growth curve new spiritual insights force on our old life patterns.

Quantum turbulence is the name physicists give to the chaotic motion (flow) of eddies and vortices (called whirlpools) in gases or liquids. Under normal conditions all fluids have a resistance to flow (viscosity). This turbulence, this burning off the dross of error, from a spiritual point of view, is called chemicalization. It is a necessary turbulence because our consciousness is ground zero for our spiritual growth.

Who or what is the Superman Christ?

We have a superhero within us. It is the Superman Christ. Actually, the Christ within us is that super-hero! The day we identify with our Superman ChristSuperwoman Christ, and not with fictitious superheroes ‘out there’ will be the day we master our human experience. Negative thinking, selfish aggrandizement, racial and gender prejudice, hurtful actions, and religious intolerance are all Kryptonite to the Superman Christ potential in all of us.

What is the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil?

The Tree of Knowledge is the space-time based consciousness of quantum beings such as ourselves, who have chosen the duality and separation schools of learning as our reconnection tools with Spirit. Sacred tree symbolism is found in Jewish, Shamanic, Hindu, Buddhist, Assyrian, Egyptian, Sumerian, Toltec, Norse and Christian faith traditions. This tree, like other ‘world trees’ is a spiritual motif of the unfoldment of our human form and/or our earthy consciousness. It represents our belief in dualities and polarities. Simply put, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Error is humankind in physical form.

What is the Tree of Life?

According to the Kabbalah, the Tree of Life is a representation of the thirty-two paths (spinal vertebrae) comprised of the ten sefirot and the twenty-two paths through which they run. The Tree of Life represents the descent of the divine into the manifest world, and methods by which the divine union may be attained in this life. It can be viewed as a map of the human psyche. Our spinal column is the trunk and the nervous system is the branches and leaves. The Tree of Life is the eternal, fohated, universal God Consciousness which underwrites all beingness and nonbeingness. Its ‘roots’ are said to be firmly placed in the firmament of the Eternal Isness and Its ‘canopy’ extending into the realm of physicality.

Our body is called a Rainbow Body. What does that mean?

When God (the Eternal Presence) set the ‘rainbow’ in the sky (endowed each of us with seven powerful spiritual centers [chakras]), it was an act of great promise. It was a token of a covenant between God and we spiritual beings who have chosen yet another human experience. Ever since then, humankind has sought to find the “pot of gold” at the end of the ‘rainbow’ so that we can find the health, wealth and happiness we seek. The rainbow’s promise (kundalini’s promise) and its treasure will not be found in the atmospherics of material pursuits, but in the harmonics of the Indwelling Christ Consciousness. The rainbow body is our chakra system with its ‘rainbow’ of colors designating each chakra.

Why is there so much evil in the world?

The short answer is because we want evil. Evil is a form of error. The only existence it has is what we give it. Evil is purely a human invention. Evil springs from our unenlightened error consciousness which worships materiality and form. When we get into the right relationship with Spirit, there will be no evil on the physical plane.

How did we fall out of favor with God?

The ‘Fall’ happens every time we purposefully choose to excel in selfology and greedology. Its origins occur when we, as highly evolved spiritual beings, decided  to create a physical experience and produce time and space as we know it. The ‘Fall’ was the moment we concocted our separation from Spirit and it happened BEFORE we became physical beings.

What is the Unforgivable Sin?

From a human point of view there are many irreconcilable differences. From a spiritual perspective there’s only one unforgivable irreconcilable ‘sin. This unforgivable irreconcilable sin is not about working on the Sabbath. Nor is it coveting your neighbor’s stock portfolio. It’s not about lying, or bearing false witness, or stealing. Nor is it about cheating on your income taxes. It’s not even secretly replacing the golf ball you couldn’t find with another one and not adding strokes to your score. The irreconcilable sin that is alluded to in the Bible is called the unforgivable sin.

What is the unforgivable sin? Read Matthew 12:31-32 in your favorite Bible interpretation. There are two important words you need to remember: unforgiveable and blasphemy. They are central for understanding what this passage means. Unforgiveness means failing to give up the false for the true. If we repeat error time and time again and continue repeating it, we’re likely to, well, keep repeating it. It’s the repetition that makes it unforgiveable. Blasphemy is the second important word in the Matthew account. Blasphemy is a powder keg word. As it is used here it refers to blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. And blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is denying our divinity. If we blaspheme, deny our divinity, we won’t be able to reconcile the difference between Truth and error, between our spiritual self and our material self, between being enlightened and being clueless.

What is the White Light technique?

Consciousness researcher William Braud’s studies on ‘psychological shielding’ revealed that we could mentally block or prevent any outside influences we didn’t want. We thought of the ‘white light’ technique we have been using for 30 years. You may even use it. It’s the one where you mentally surround yourself with a cocoon of white light to protect yourself from harm, from things like someone else’s cold, or cough, or illness, or injury. Braud’s studies confirm our belief that consciousness is a very powerful thing and that our mental acuity is a very powerful tool.

What is the metaphysical interpretation of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Much has been written about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Almost all of the interpretations center around external events which take place in the end times. Symbols of the ‘Horsemen’ include the anti-Christ, warfare, famine, plagues, death. However, since the Bible is the story of our evolving spiritual consciousness, the horsemen, like other people, places, and things mentioned in scripture, represent qualities within us.

The white horse represents dogma that limits our spiritual growth and blinds us to greater truths. The red horse stands for the chemicalization that occurs when our old beliefs and assumptions are rocked by cognitive dissonance. Our thoughts war against each other as we try to grasp compelling spiritual insights. The black horse symbolizes our going through the ‘dark night of the soul’ as old beliefs and life patterns are challenged and then released. The pale horse represents the demise of our worldly, Adamic consciousness which does its best to resist the inevitable transformation which is occurring.

Where is the Garden of Eden?

In our own minds we “fell from grace.” We forgot our omnipotent heirship and hid from our inheritance. We became afraid of the power we discovered. We had second thoughts about our Godness. We developed this neurotic idea that we are unworthy and undeserving. We feel shame and hide ourselves from our God essence – everyday! We have derailed ourselves unnecessarily – and tragically. We can reclaim our ever-present Eden, which is intrinsically expanding at the rate of our Christed awareness. And that reclamation begins with the realization that we are God indivisiblized at the point of us. When we live in that state of heightened awareness we will realize we have never left Eden – we only think we have.

What is the Holy Spirit?

There is an Intrinsic Life Force that permeates all that is. It is the Eternal Presence animating Itself in the manifest and unmanifest realms of being. The Hindus call it ‘kundalini.’ The Japanese call it “ki“, the Chinese “chi” and in Christianity, it is known as ‘Holy Spirit,’ the Comforter (parakletos). Its highly-charged energies ascend and descend in our spinal cord (the alchemical serpent), depending on our level of enlightenment. The white heat of Spirit travels up and down our spinal cord through powerful energy centers (chakras), purifying, cleansing, and activating these spiritual transformers. We believe John 3:14-15 and the Book of Revelation, as well as other New Testament passages, refer to this kundalinic rise of serpentine energies.

What is the Immaculate Conception?

When our intuitive intelligence, love, and receptivity to our innate divinity are raised to their highest and purest spiritual essences we immaculately conceive  pure, inviolate Christed Ideas.

Who is the Only Begotten Son?

The Only-Begotten Son idea does not refer to human genetics. It’s more like spiritual DNA, or even a Cosmic Zygote of sorts. It is the Christ Principle which is incarnated at the point of us. Unfortunately until humankind realizes that the Christ as us is our core identity, the Only-Begotten Son will remain the Only-Forgotten Son.

If you’ll keep an open mind and use your dogma repellant, we’d like to offer you a different perspective on who the Only Begotten Son is as mentioned in the Bible. We believe the Only Begotten Son is the Christ Presence within each of us. It is the same Christ Presence that was in Jesus. It is the same Christ Presence that was in His disciples, in His mother Mary. It was even the same Christ Presence that was in Pontius Pilate and Herod, although these three men repressed it.

It is the same Christ Presence that is in you and us and in our children and grandchildren. It is the same Christ Presence that will be in the next child that is born. Snap yourself out of the illusion that you are mere flesh and blood. There is a treasure hidden within you – the Only Begotten Son, the Cosmic Christ which is expressing Itself in human form as you.

When and how does the Resurrection take place?

Metaphysically speaking, no matter how dulled, deadened, or comatose we become (that’s what Jairus’ daughter, the widow of Nain’s son, and Lazarus represent) we can be resurrected by the power of Spirit. No matter how sick we are mentally, emotionally, or physically, we can be healed.

Resurrection is a restoration, a revitalization, a reclamation, a re-booting of our Christ potential every time we choose a Christed thought over a worldly thought. Reincarnations and incarnations are resurrections. We get another chance to improve the last version of ourselves.

What is the best way to honor the Sabbath?

Metaphysically, we experience the Sabbath every time we put worldly thoughts behind and focus on spiritual thoughts. A 2- minute prayer is a Sabbath. A 5-minute walk is a Sabbath. A 1- minute affirmation is a Sabbath. All of these are portable Sabbaths. A Sabbath dissolves artificial urgencies. It helps us pace ourselves. It builds rest into our day. Hitting pause for a moment liberates us from the external hoopla.

When the soul’s habitat abides in Spirit, there is sacred rest because there is a divine coupling. We must offer the soul the cradle it deserves. And that cradle is resting from error thoughts sense addictions. Experiencing a Sabbath moment everyday so we can find our God connection, is a radical prescription. It takes us out of the rat race. It takes our focus from the wasteland of hyperactivity to the peace and serenity of the ‘still small voice.’

What is the true nature of the universe?

By its very nature the universe is expanding. It is filled with thought forms like supernovas, singularities, quasars, galaxies, parallel universes, cosmic inflation, black holes, binary star systems, and rare quantum beings like us. This expansion mirrors our own expansion in consciousness.

Up until now it was believed that our universe was the only universe and that it was created by the Big Bang. Most physicists today agree that there were a number of little Big Bangs. One of which was ours. Cosmologists have recently proposed that our universe is part of a multiverse which has always existed. A multiverse, they speculate, is a unified field which contains many universes. This unified field, also known as the zero point field, is the quantum extension of our evolving consciousness.
