If you have arrived here it’s likely that you have already been down many roads seeking greater understanding of yourself, seeking relief from physical or emotional pain or from the deeper pain that lies beneath all our suffering—feeling separated from our fundamental source. This may be experienced as a yearning, but what we yearn for is often not clear to us. This source has been called by many names: essence, higher power, oneness, divine light. Some refer to it as God.
We don’t need to look in obscure places to find the answers to our questions, what unsettles us. Every place, every moment is Truth . . . if we are fully present in those moments; awakening to Reality being the ultimate Truth, the ultimate free event because it is absolute presence. However, even with a direct awakening experience and the penetrating insights that may follow we will not automatically be transformed in our daily lives if we have not transformed ourselves. This is what we should aspire to— to be wholly engaged in the moments of our lives, to be the investigator, the surveyor of the land of our being, to bring Truth to untruths.
The writings offered here touch on many aspects of our everyday lives and are presented through the vista of a larger world view. The ability to place our uncertainties in this comprehensive and broader context can lead to Knowledge about our True nature. When this understanding is then applied to our everyday affairs we can restore ourselves to a balanced state . . . to seeing rightly.
