Roots of Our Essence - Audio

on Mon, 05/04/2015 - 20:31


With all of the advancement in science and technology, we are facing more and more complex problems. In this talk, Dr. Laurence De Rusha explores the connection of the heart to the solution to our troubles. The further away from our Source the more complex are the issues to solve -- both individual and collective. The New Thought understanding of the Vedic philosophy described in the ancient Sanskrit texts of India pinpoints this root cause.



Nature gives us the solution through the metaphor of the beautiful redwood trees. This tree is over 380 feet tall.


Closing in on Consciousness

Probably for as long as humans have been able to grasp the concept of consciousness, they have sought to understand the phenomenon.

Studying the mind was once the province of philosophers, some of whom still believe the subject is inherently unknowable. But neuroscientists are making strides in developing a true science of the self.

Here are some of the best contenders for a theory of consciousness.

Cogito ergo sum

Not an easy concept to define, consciousness has been described as the state of being awake and aware of what is happening around you, and

Science and Non Duality-Advita

on Sat, 02/07/2015 - 17:41

Several years ago I attended the Science and Nonduality conference in Marin County, California. I was excited to see this movement growing, as evidenced by the crowds. The movement I am speaking of is the science and spirituality movement. Last year I joined the organization, through a donation, to express my support. See the link Below for their website.

It is still difficult for the Western world to grasp that there is a Self beyond the personality. We may have a hazy understanding of the soul, but it is an abstract concept for most. This true Self is a state of pure awareness.

Affirmation or Prayer

on Wed, 12/10/2014 - 21:09

For thousands of years people have been trained in the art and science of praying. Most often we are taught to negotiate with God, plead with God, tell Jesus why this or that happened, and ask for forgiveness, or ask for something we need. This type of prayer without a proper understanding of how prayer works is misinform.

What is Affirmative Prayer and why do I need to know about it?

Many saints have walked the earth illuminating the path of  Truth. They speak about prayer in powerful and highly insightful ways: St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of The Cross, St.

Free Energy. No Thanks!

on Wed, 10/01/2014 - 17:35

By Peter Russell

There's much talk these days about tapping the unlimited sources of free energy that exist in the quantum vacuum field.

Initially it would seem like a dream come true. It could relieve of us our dependence on fossil fuels, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and save us from some of the more dire consequences of global warming. No bad thing at all. Not to mention the fact that it would be cheap too. It would also be most welcome in developing countries where it could transform agriculture, housing, sanitation and provide many other much-needed services.

DNA, Edgar Cayce's Forgotten record

Modern Genetic Research Confirming Cayce’s Story
This section adapted from Mound Builders: Edgar Cayce's Forgotten Record of Ancient America by Gregory L. Little, PhD.

Edgar Cayce mentioned ancient America in 68 different readings. These readings covered migrations to America, mound builders, the Norse, and other events. In Mound Builders: Edgar Cayce’s Forgotten History of Ancient America (2001), his 68 readings on ancient America were


As might be expected, ancient DNA research has become a highly contentious issue with several competing sides.

When and Why Cause and Effect ChangesTo Accptance-by-Degree

This is based on the work of James Pottenger a holographic psychologist.

In Steven Roger Fischer‟s book, A History Of Language, he brings us up-to-date on the “global” nature of “language”.
On page 8 he states:

“The current formal definition of „language‟ is experiencing a semantic change too, with „language‟ no longer the exclusive franchise of Homo Sapiens. It is now appreciated that any living being, in any epoch, that has used some means of conveying information to other animates has used „language‟ of some sort. Language is apparently a universal faculty.”

Doubt: A Scientific and Religious Perspective

on Wed, 07/25/2012 - 20:34

Science is naturally skeptical, initially couched in doubt. The goal in science, however, is to leave a state of doubt or ignorance and, through testing and proof, come to know truth.
Science is uncomfortable with doubt.

In law, given limited time, evidence, arguments, testimonies and the right to speedy trials, judges and juries can live with doubt. They draw the line at reasonable doubt.

Law is comfortable with shadows of doubt, but uncomfortable with reasonable doubt.

Dealing with more doubt takes faith.

Creative Process

on Thu, 06/28/2012 - 18:10

Things of this world are subject to a power within you! You don’t need to acquire this power because it is yours by the nature of who you are, human. To use this power, however, does require you to have an understanding of it. To understand it you must become aware of it. If you are not aware of it then it is impossible to use it.

First, then, you become aware of the power. Next you need to understand it. There are levels to understanding. An intellectual understanding means you have read or studied it or analyzed it. Another type of understanding is direct experience.

Three Things To Know About The Truth

on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 04:50
The Truth With a Capital "T"

Let us make this distinction. Combine the ideas of intuition and truth, and you have Truth beginning with a capital "T." The truth about anything other than yourself is called truth with a small "t." This type of truth is relative to the external world. The real Truth is about you and only about you. It comes from within you.

In this model of thinking we are using several markers that allow you to evaluate the real Truth.

Finding Inner Wisdom in Uncertain Times

by Peter Russell  (a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest.)

We all experience how the pace of change is speeding up, but seldom do we step back to look at where this acceleration is taking us, and how to cope with the impact it will have on our lives.

The last half-century has seen unprecedented change–television, satellites, nuclear power, jet travel, fax machines, portable phones–all contributing to a speeding in the pace of change.
