STATEMENT OF INTENTION:

This blog website is the outgrowth of frequent discussions among friends over a period of many years. My friends and I have discussed among ourselves, shared insights, advocated and disagreed, as well as extended each other’s comfort zones. The subjects were always diverse and varied – current events, our communities, systems, ourselves and that which we may generally refer to as our higher power (known by many different names). Despite any differences of worldview or perspectives, we always remain respectful of each other. In other words, we agreed to disagree.

The intention in publishing this website is to invigorate meaningful discussions and possibly help inspire new and empowering ways of thinking. I trust that in sharing my thoughts and reflections on this blog, I may help generate thoughtful discussion among the readers and visitors to this website. I may possibly help encourage us to look at things differently – or at least to look at issues relevant to our daily life – with a deeper or more reflective insight. And – if I am fortunate, our discussions may serve as a catalyst in the transformation of old paradigm thinking – and help introduce us to a new paradigm – a new way of understanding our conditions, methods and solutions.
In other words, this is my modest contribution to a new consciousness.

At a recent speech on religion, held at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC, at which the... read more

The Kingdom Lies Within

The three world religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam (the Abrahamic religions) share a common ancestor and origin in the story and person of Abraham. Together they comprise approximately 50% of all religious adherents. Each of these world religions are premised upon the belief in a supreme God that is absolute and infinite in nature.
