Guru Tattva; The Divine Principle in Every Person

Guru Tattva is a yogic term for the Divine principle in every person. To really understand the spiritual life or the spiritual path, it is all about this one thing. One religion is a scoop of water from the pond. Another religion is another scoop of water from the pond. We can have another scoop of water, but we are not talking about the pond. The Guru Tattva is the pond. Is that which is prior to the religion. It is that which exists within you as you.  The principle of the spiritual path is to realize Guru Tattva. This […]

The Power of What We Eat

Koach Mah means “Power of What”.  Let’s begin with what we eat and see how that affects our consciousness. For thousands of years we have known about the optimal diet for spiritual life. The ancient rishis, 2,000-3,000 years ago; the Taoist masters; the Torah teaching of Genesis 1:29; the inner core of the Mormon Church, including founder Joseph Smith, all say the same thing.  Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but they all say a vegan, live food diet is the most optimal for spiritual life. Let’s take a look at other diets.  The Ayurvedic tradition talks about spiritual life and […]

The Mystery of the Tree of Life Perspective

What’s going on in the world today is a reflection of our collective inner world.  Our inner world is key.  When you don’t understand your inner world, you can’t understand the outer world. One of the biggest tasks on the spiritual realm is the inner/outer balance we create in our own lives.  We struggle sometimes between being too easy and being too hard.  The Kabbalistic model of the Tree of Life comprises ten sefirotic energies that are essentially a pattern for all creation. What is that pattern that we are talking about?  The highest sefirot is keter, which is the […]

You Must Follow Before You Can Lead

When I was on my football team at Amherst College, there was writing on the wall, which said, “You must learn to follow before you can lead”.  I remember how important this was.  At first, as a starting varsity player as a sophomore, I didn’t even talk.  I played hard and did fine and got to the point where I got to be the captain of an undefeated team in my senior year.  As captain it was my duty to talk.  I was happy not talking, but that was my new role.  Years later, when I was in India living […]

Protecting Our Minds – Feeling Our Souls

Protecting the mind is becoming one of the most important things we can do in the world to maintain our connection with our soul. Another way of thinking about it, as I teach in my Zero Point course, is that we are all born originals but almost everyone dies as a copy. The idea of spiritual life is to help people to become originals again. This is why the topic of protecting your mind is so important, because the world mass media is profoundly attempting to seduce and distract us into mental slavery through a persistent attempt to confuse and […]

Power of Intention

Power of intention can help you, but it can also get in your way. Power must be blended with the flow of grace in your life. All power has to have this balance of alignment with the Divine Will otherwise our intention becomes egocentric. Even with good intentions, we have to be mindful of this. Is the intention coming from you or from your ego? This can be a hard question.

The One Dominant Force in the World

The world is involved in a power struggle. Of course, it is an illusory power struggle for control and domination, because we are, in fact, never in control. In this high level of delusion, however, people are willing to kill each other in their confusion of asserting power to dominate the world. This has never worked throughout history, and it will never work now or in the future. This is not how the Divine has organized the world. There is only one power. It is the Divine power. It is explicitly set up for this domination to fail. When we […]

The Faustian Deal of the Trans-human Illusion

The Faustian Deal of the Trans-human Illusion

Humans are developing computers with artificial intelligence having more brainpower than humans. Whether it happens 5, 10, or 20 years from now, it will eventually come to be. There is now a movement where people are actually implanting themselves, or planning in the future to do so, and becoming part computer. The wisdom question is, “What is this about”? Do we really want our brain to come under the direction of a computer and ultimately who programs that computer? Do we really need to interface with computers by letting them control our bodies and brains? What are we doing? Trans-humanism […]

Living with Full Spiritual Intensity

I will share with you a wisdom that appeared to me 50 years ago when I was a senior in college and I walked out on the football field. I thought, “What am I doing here? This is only a game.” The other part of the wisdom was that yes, it is only a game but if you do not play it intensely you’re not going to do very well. I wasn’t one of the bigger players but I was the caption of what ended up being an undefeated college football team. This was all about intensity. As we look […]

Anchoring Oneself in the Unchangeable

This evening’s teaching is on right livelihood.  Because this can be a limited concept, I will use the word dharma, which is the spiritually highest way to earn a living. The real question, in a world that has lost its way as before the great flood, is “What exactly is dharma?  And what are the standards for dharmic living?” Noach was a tzaddik (or a spiritual teacher) in his time, but compared to other spiritual people who lived at other times, he might not even be considered to be a tzaddik.  At the time that he was living in, however, […]
