Three Questions

Is God a Concept? According to Western religions, God is likened to a person who is creator of the universe, and God or God’s henotheistic constituents occasionally interact with humans. According to Eastern religions, God is more akin to a state of being, perhaps best defined as the ultimate reality underlying the universe. But if we were to ask, “Is Read More »

Householders – Fighting From Inside a Fort

In her recent blogpost, our dear friend and spiritual teacher Elizabeth Krajewski published a truly inspirational post, encapsulating the essence of the householder-devotee lifestyle, which is reminiscent of and echoes the Third Order Secular Franciscans. With her kind permission, we are reprinting a section of Elizabeth’s Jan. 24, 2024 post, A Hermit in the World. Please click on that link, Read More »

When Religion Does More Harm Than Good

A new poll reveals that the religious unaffiliated, the “Nones,” now constitute the majority of all such groups in America, topping even established religions. The Jan. 24, 2024, NPR article, “Religious ‘Nones’ are now the largest single group in the U.S.” details this finding. In 2007, the number of “Nones” stood at 16%.

No, not the Times Square Ball, which descends in New York City every New Year’s Eve to mark the start of the new year. I’m referring to none other than Read More »

Where All Roads Lead to Greater Love

November Reflections

Each autumn, I reflect, reminiscence, and recall in vivid detail a spiritual experience that occurred some 49 years ago, which changed my life. I recount the main details of this Christ-centered experience in my spiritual novel, Dialogues With the Lord of Time.
