01 Names and Places


The two parts of this episode were recorded a week apart. There is some overlap in the content, but together they are a marvelous introduction to the depth and wonder of the invisible room. When coming into the invisible room for the first time, one is overwhelmed by the inadequacy of language to indicate its reality. Words fail and yet they are useful if infused with the spirit energy within the room. We come into this room and leave our personal lives at the door in order to have a real experience of our divine source and center unclouded by the fears, doubts, and the uncertainties of personal living. When we realize that the invisible room is our own source of guidance for choices made and goodness recognized and beauty seen and felt, the value of having that direct experience becomes deeply understood. How we choose to name this inner reality depends upon how we respond to our experience of it. On the website, there is a list of often used designations for spirit, God, the higher self, etc. The experience of the invisible room (as I refer to it in this podcast), of course, brings no names to bear. Only the mind seeks to give it a name, for it is the mind that seeks to define the world and keep us bound into the indoctrinations that have left human consciousness so constricted that happy, prosperous and evolutionary lives are almost impossible to live.
