The Spirituality of Judaism

Monday, 11 July 2016 Spirituality  No comments

David Hartman’s book, A Living Covenant centers on two important topics on the subject of Jewish spirituality. The first deals with the allegation that traditional Judaism excessively concerns itself with matters of “law” to the extent that a mechanical approach, in matters of faith and relating to God, is realized. This arguably degenerates into “legalism.” The second topic relates to how mankind approaches God within and without the scope of Jewish particularity. Both of these topics are inter-related to each other. Regarding how mankind approaches the subject of “knowing God,” Hartman contends that two ways are possible...

The Spirituality of Being Versus Doing

Daily Insight into Living Consciously from The Little Prince

When we glimpse how vastly different consciousness is as a way of living from the unconsciousness in which we have floundered, we want to fix up our life by embarking on a “spiritual journey.”

We start reading all kinds of books, listening to talks, going to retreats, praying, meditating, and affirming.

We begin working various programs, practicing laws of attraction, meeting in groups to study courses on spirituality.

All of this is meant to change our situation.

What we don’t usually realize is that we are seeking to make things different by using the same fundamental approach that got us where we are: doing.

A conscious life isn’t about doing, but about being.

But being isn’t an inactive life...

Spiritual Teachings – My Favourite Spiritual Books

Wednesday, 20 July 2016 Spirituality  No comments

There are many wonderful spiritual books available, and I particularly love the books of the poet saints. They speak passionately about what it means to swim in the depths of eternal love. You can’t go wrong with those teachings. There’s nothing to complain about or disagree with either, because these poet saints were in the state that they speak of while they were writing. They were in the state of Love.

Often when you read their books, you begin to experience that same Love in your own heart because this Love is timeless. It doesn’t just exist once and then it’s over. When you read the words, some of them will just jump right into your heart. You could even feel a tear come to your eye because they move you to your core.

I also appreciate the work of Ervin Laszlo...

Like many North Americans, author Deborah McCarragher made many excuses for not going to church. Finally, in the spring of 1989 she attended with a neighbor. As she describes it, Deborah was “radically saved” that first Sunday. She took her two-year-old son and each week she became closer and closer to God. Her husband approved, but would not attend church...

A Lot of Talk About Spirituality – The Little Prince Series

Continuing Insight from The Little Prince

Have you found that there aren’t too many people you can talk meaningfully with about the deep issues of life?

This was the experience of the little boy, now grown into a man whose career is that of a pilot. Occasionally he would come across a person who appeared to be fairly “clear-sighted,” as he put it. He’s referring to someone who seems to be somewhat aware—we might say conscious.

The pilot would show this seemingly conscious person his Drawing Number One. Did the person have real understanding?

If the individual concluded that the drawing was of a hat, then the pilot didn’t go any deeper into conversation with this individual but talked about surface issues such as bridge, sports, politics, and fashion—the things the avera...

Spirituality and Religion

Tuesday, 26 July 2016 Spirituality  No comments

What are the differences between spirituality and religion? These two concepts are often misunderstood and one confused with the other. Both do however, seemingly have the same message, which is one of love and offer a path to God.

It would seem that ones interpretation of God is at the core of the misunderstandings that riddle the human race.

Here we will look at the different approaches on offer

Fear and Love:

Often religions take the approach of fearing a God and would have you take its word for it. Religion plays on peoples fear to do the right thing so they will not suffer eternally at some time in the future.

The spiritual approach to God is through the self seeking path of love...
