The Bridge

You were born with two minds — the deeper mind that God has given you, the mind you had before you came into the world, the mind you will have once you leave the world–and you have a worldly mind, shaped and conditioned by your experience of the world and by your response to all those experiences and all the influences that have shaped your thinking, attitudes and beliefs since the day you were born.

Knowledge and the Limits of Belief

You were born with two minds: an intellect that has been largely shaped by your culture, your family and your environment, and by your own judgments, assumptions and conclusions; but deeper down, there is a spiritual mind, a mind called Knowledge. It is called Knowledge because it is related to your ability to have profound insight and to access information that is beyond the reach of your five senses.

Who You Are Is Not Your Mind

You are not your mind. You are not your intellect. Who you are is not your thoughts. You are not your beliefs. You are not your memories. You are not your conflicts. You are not those things that you identify with.

Living in Separation

You are living in a state of Separation—as a singular person, seemingly distinct from all other singular persons, distinct from other life forms, with a singular identity and awareness.

The Greater Power within You

People everywhere are carrying a greater power within themselves, a power that they have not yet discovered. It is a deeper Intelligence that the Creator of all life has given to each person.

The Soul’s Journey on Earth

You are traveling through time and space, engaged in a long journey of return to your Ancient Home. In this life and beyond, this journey continues. It is not a journey you make just for yourself. It is a journey you make for all those who have lost contact with the Creator of all life. It is a journey of Separation and return.

The Spiritual Fire

Within you, deep within you, beneath the surface of the mind, in a place you barely know, there is a Fire, a spiritual Fire. It is the source of your inspiration. It is the Fire of Knowledge, the deeper mind within you, burning like a hearth…consuming your errors and your pain…purifying you…blessing you…guiding you.

Following the Presence

Following the presence of God is learning how to be in the world but not of the world. This is learning how to build a connection to your Ancient Home while you are here.

The Greater Intelligence

Certainly, people have a notion of intelligence. How clever or capable a person’s mind may be in certain situations, how well educated a person may be along certain lines of work or employment, how clever one might be and artistic one might be—all these things are considered markers of intelligence. But they only bespeak one aspect of intelligence within you.

The Presence

People are very busy, very stimulated, rushing about always, unable to be still, unable to listen within themselves, the mind restless, always searching, full of passion, full of fear, full of persuasions, full of denial. Why is this so? Why are such intelligent creatures such as human beings so driven, so anxious and so uncontented? Why is this the case with nearly everyone? People speak of a spiritual reality. People speak of God. People speak of Heaven and Hell. People speak of their faith. But they are still restless, uneasy, confused.
