Spirit of Truth

      No Comments on Spirit of Truth

The Spirit of Truth is Truth, not our conceptual perception of something true, so if we remain attached to perception, what we have is perception, not Truth, nor the Spirit of Truth.  Awakening to the Spirit of Truth transcends perception but includes intuitive apperception which wisdom infuses in the Spirit.  Truth is not something or nothing, nor is it exhausted… Read more »

Wisdom abides in the glory of infinite openness which is the mind of Christ in which the Spirit abides.  The Spirit does not waver from the mind of Christ, or dither between dualities but centres  where Christ is perfect freedom.  The glory of Christ is expansive openness, free from confusion and division, dissolving confusion into union, healing division with communion….

Realm of the Name

      No Comments on Realm of the Name

God’s realm of the Name is free of confusion and division, so frees the heart from confusion and division by purification and illumination, sustaining glorification.  Since, in God, there is no confusion, indivisible union is timelessly present, spontaneously purifying the heart.  Freedom is valued not because there are regimes that poison and imprison those who resist oppression, but because God’s… Read more »
