About Servants of the Way

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:5-7) This passage has been the cause of great confusion amongst sincere seekers of Truth and the source of much harm inflicted by those who have used this statement as an excuse for exclusivity and superiority. This statement was made by the Cosmic Christ through the Master, Jesus.  This Christ is the only begotten Son/Sun of God and is not the property of any one religion or philosophy.  Followers of […]

Sleep

You may remember times as I do when you were just so exhausted that you literally could not keep your eyes open but could not lay down to sleep just yet. When you finally did get to lay down, oh glorious feeling! You could let go of your struggle to remain awake and yield to the luxurious pull of deep sleep. I can also recall times when I was a teenager and my mother would turn the light on in my bedroom, shouting “Time to get up for school”. I […]


The Conductor

High school orchestra. My freshman year. Third clarinet. Not very good! We would struggle along under the guidance of the music instructor/conductor. As a group we sounded passable. As is typical before a performance or even a rehearsal the individual musicians (I use the term loosely) would tune up, each in her own world trying to harmonize with the note sounded by the first violinist. It was a discordant racket but one filled with a kind of excitement and anticipation. And then the conductor would enter and take up the […]

World View

It seems a pity that so much time and energy is being spent on defending World Views. We know that there are differing World Views out there, a fact that is driven home whenever poll results are released on just about any subject. We all have them. But to devote any energy to defending or promoting a World View is to ignore the other overriding fact; All World Views are ultimately flawed. There is only One View that we need embrace. Only when the World is Viewed from that perspective, […]


The Great Work

Let go and let God! How often have we heard this and how many meanings and insights has this simple saying imparted? It, like all real teachings, is true and meaningful on many levels. We know that we are certainly being exhorted to “let go” of our worldly attachments. To be empty. To make room for the light. To be less. But to what end? The Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension. The very core of Christ’s mission and the Path we must walk. These events are the culmination of the seed […]

Resurrected Christ

Resurrection

“We are living in a world of illusion”. We have heard various versions of this statement many times but this concept of illusion has been a confusing one for most of us. How can the world we know be an illusion? It seems obvious that the world around us is “real”. It is solid. We feel pain when our bodies are injured. We feel awful if our bodies are sick. These are quite real, non illusory observations. So where is this illusion? We also have heard that this Resurrection thing […]


The Christian Mysteries: Christmas

As we approach the period of time leading to Advent and Christmas it is important to understand what the significance of these events of the Birth, Baptism, Trial, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension signify. Those of us who follow the Inner Path of Initiation known as The Way, must always be on the lookout for areas of our understanding that have not yet been transfused with the knowing that only comes through direct experience of these inner truths. We must not forget that the terms we use and the events in […]

Impermanence

We are told that “the only constant in the universe is change”. This is both true and not true at same time. In the realm of manifestation, of things that are, of form and of time, change IS constant. Everything vibrates and moves and grows and decays and grows anew. In the realm behind and beyond manifestation, even behind the realm of causation, there is perfect stillness, completeness, no becoming, no moving, no growing or dying. These “realms” exist simultaneously and are ever present. It is easy to experience the […]


Spiritual Transmission and Master Teachers

The Eastern religions have a deep understanding of the important relationship between a Guru/Master and Chela/Student.   It is accepted that by devoting oneself to a spiritual Master, by falling in love with this Master and by following the directions this Master gives her/his students the students will harmonize and synchronize with the Master’s mantle and a flow of enlightened consciousness will flow to the student.  This relationship extends beyond the grave and many millions of devotees feel spiritually fed by a ‘departed’ Master. The closest we have in the West […]

Jihad?

To be an activist or not to be an activist, that is the question! We know and understand that the Master’s charging into the temple court and tuning over tables and chasing out the money changers was a teaching about our own need to be fiercely focus on keeping our own inner temple free from the distractions and clutter of daily life on earth.  That inner court is where we should be preparing to go deeper into the temple, even to the Holy of Holies, rather than spending our energies […]
