Love – further clarifying its non-existence.

So much poetry and song lyrics are created by the emotion of love yet it is an illusion too! Albeit an illusion which, like time - another illusion - serves a purpose in this plane, a means of expressing the inexpressible essence of the "God within".…

About being One.

In essence, as Spirit we are One – whilst retaining an ‘identity’.

Avoiding Reaction to The Ways of the World.

I have previously stated that the Mind and the Soul are the same thing and defined them (it) as being the sum total of the Spirit’s experiences in thousands of lives. I have also stated that what we perceive as reality is, in fact, an illusion, dreamlike.

If we combine what we know the mind to be with the fact of perceived reality…

The View from the Mountain. (2)

When presented with the philosophy of life some people brush it aside as irrelevant: these are disinterested and not yet ready; others read it as one rides a jet ski and skim the surface: these are interested but are not yet ready; others dive below the surface and absorb the beauty of the corals and the fishes – even cavort with the seals and dolphins: these are…

Our Bodies – our creation.

Since we create our own bodies one may ask how we do this when it is two other bodies, the parents’, which provide the raw material. The answer is that we create the blueprint and the parents’ bodies the raw materials (now called genes). However, it should be remembered that the parents have to meet other requirements such as personalities, circumstances and a…
