The image above represents all who are grappling earnestly with the mystery of their existence, male or female, ancient or contemporary, east or west, you or me.

The mystery of you is not in your story.

from Don Juan to Carlos Castaneda

“We are dogs in the hands of those forces,” he snapped at me. “So stop your self-importance and use this gift properly.” –Journey to Ixtlan

The Oldest Wisdom of Humankind

“The Self is the dearest of all things, and only through the Self is anything else dear. The Self is the origin of all finite happiness, but it is itself pure bliss, transcending definition. It remains unaffected by deeds, good or bad. It is beyond feeling and beyond knowledge, but it is not beyond the meditation of the sage.” –The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

“Whenever you possibly can, sustain the flow of a sacred Name. To repeat His name is to be in His presence. If you associate with the Supreme Friend, He will reveal His true being to you.” –Sri Anandamayi Ma

The nearer you come to God, the less you are disposed to questioning and reasoning. When you actually attain Him, when you behold Him as the reality, then all noise, all disputations, come to an end.” –Sri Ramakrishna

Drunk with the joy of singing, I forget myself and call thee friend who art my lord.” –Rabindranath Tagore

“It seems as though but a brief experience of this Joy would be worth any effort and any amount of suffering that could be packed into a lifetime that might prove necessary for its realization.” –Franklin Merrell-Wolff

Quick Start Guide and Glossary

The primary activity of this website is listening to the episodes listed in the menus. They are approximately thirty minutes long; a new one shows up once a week or so. There are shorter audios that act as invitations to listen to the longer episodes and to give you a sense of what your experiences might be like. There are also guided meditations that propel listeners deeper into their invisible rooms.

In addition to the podcast audios, I have created two portrait galleries of men and women who have risen out of the mass consciousness and are providing light for those ready to tread the path of spiritual awakening. These people by no means constitute a complete representation of awake human beings, and not all of then are incarnate in the world. The darshan pages offer site visitors an opportunity for a deeper experience of a few of these great souls.

Be sure to read “The Certitude That God Is Real” and “The Inward Turn” which are on the right-hand sidebar on every page. What follows here are quick indicators of particular ideas that show up regularly. Not to be intimidated. Sit back and listen. The experience has nothing to do with understanding terms or philosophies. For a deeper intellectual penetration into the experience, you can consult the FAQ page, and Creating an Architecture of Light for the Mind.
