I AM

Objects are not simply passive phenomena hovering over against consciousness. Objects always appear with an overbearing claim to existence. Look around you! Everything that is is saying “I am.” The world is a voice pronouncing “I AM.” AUMMM World is a tyranny of Being. I am. Yet, I am a quite peculiar being: Though inert … More I AM

Truth & Reality

World is not something in which we act and think. World is what we think and how we act. The habit of the modern mind, thanks to the reign of scientific worldview, is to assume that world, as a determinate structure, is there before we come to it. But isn’t this thesis itself something somehow … More Truth & Reality

Wholes & Parts

The whole is always infinitely greater than the sum total of its parts. Thus, the content of the whole, God, becomes both immanent and transcendent with regard to the manifested content.

Fear is made of us. How can something that is not made of consciousness become an object of consciousness!? … More We Are That

The Grace to Embrace

We must remind ourselves, those of us practicing religion as a means of salvation rather than welfare, that the spiritual life, the life of God, is about God and not us. That we complain so often of our imperfections and the subsequent suffering is a misunderstanding of religion. Perhaps we think that spiritual life is … More The Grace to Embrace

The Immortal One

Two simple propositions, taken from Vedantic philosophy, summarize the whole of truth and the way to attain it.

We needed nothing more if we … More The Immortal One
