Divine Squeezing?

In my last post I talked about the giant baby.  Check it out. I really believe the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” is so applicable in our journey of discovery or awakening.  We live in the shadows in this temporal domain.  We are eternal beings, one with the divine and of the…

The Giant Baby

Sometimes pictures help us understand a difficult concept. There is an American idiom “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This phrase was coined in the early 20th century by newspaper editors suggesting that advertising with pictures would convey more than just words. It actually isn’t a Chinese proverb or some Confucius saying. (A point…

The fear of Oneness

When I talk about our Oneness with the divine, sometimes fear is the response. There are pictures that help us see who we really are. We are an extension of God in this reality. The Christian Bible describes this extension as being the Son of God. We are that Son, all of us. Jesus said…

The voice of accusation…

Jesus came to reveal our oneness our unity with the divine. He said “I and the Father are one.” This is our anthem. When we wake up to that truth we can’t reject one another. To reject another is to reject ourselves. We are living just the one life, the eternal life. Our innermost voice…

The father gave the son the value of his inheritance in cash. The father gave the older son what was left. The father “gave himself completely”…

Abraham saw this

This journey we are on is about enlightenment.  We are the divine manifestation of the divine in this temporal reality still one with the eternal reality.  OK, that is very heady, I get it, but often words fall short of what is a truth of the Kingdom.  We are waking up from a dream.  We…

The Observer

The mystics have always understood the importance of meditation.  Actually nearly every religion practices some form of meditation.  Thomas Merton was a great mystic of our time.  He would say meditation practices often open up to the contemplative moment.  In those moments we are “touched by God” in the unknowing place.  He says this about…

Swimming with the fishes

I’ve been to Key West, Florida a few times.  To really enjoy Key West you need to get in the water.  Whether it is on a boat or wading in the surf or swimming, Key West isn’t Key West until you get wet. One year I went there for business and we had a day…

Uniqueness is oneness

We all know that each of us has a unique finger print.  No two people have the same retinal patterns.  We all have individuality, unique personalities.  No two people are alike.  Even identical twins have uniqueness.  If we look around we see the same thing in all of creation.  There aren’t two things that are…
