As my Spirituality ebbs and flows, I remain a Disciple of Jesus. However, I no longer identify culturally as a member of Christianity. What changed is is my understanding of “love” and its overwhelming influence on my worldview. Three Prophets dominate the bible, Rabbi Moses, Rabbi Jesus, and Rabi Paul. In the past, all three held the same influence on my understanding. Now Jesus alone has preeminence. The words of the other two I now use as a reference for clarity and context. This is not culturally traditional when interpreting scripture, hence my departure from the Christian culture.
In John 17:20-23, I understand that Jesus is praying about a spiritual unity that transcends the hierarchy of religion and social order. I believe it reveals a nondual nature to our reality. This blog will switch gears and try to help its readers attain awareness of this nondual nature. My life is an exploration. I remain a simple student as a child of God/Universe. I sit in silence with questions, read scripture from my former culture and other cultures. I go where Holy Spirit leads me. I shake off religious culture, and I search for truth. Currently, my only limit is I am doing this without the aid of drugs.
I will share what I see, hear, and feel. I hope you find my journey an encouragement. Feel free to comment and share your findings.
About (Original, all post prior to June 2021)
This blog has a twofold purpose. The first is to create a conversation concerning the Kingdom of God (KoG). Specifically, we discuss the role we play in revealing this invisible realm and its relationship to all of us and this materialistic world we inhabit. The second purpose is to encourage each of us to become a repository of the evidence that proves that the KoG is alive and functioning as God designed. To those ends, I invite you to follow us and join in our conversations, as well as present evidence that others may examine. I hope that this conversation will invite more significant participation in the execution and demonstration of God’s Kingdom by all His sons and daughters. I intend to update this blog frequently.
Your Friend and Joint heir in the Kingdom of God,
I was born in Washington, DC, and have lived in this metro area all my life. Spiritually speaking, some would say that this is the toughest town to find a place of peace. However, Jesus taught that the only location made to house this peace is located in the center of you and me. I was raised Catholic by my parents and resided in Prince George’s County, Maryland. For the second 25 years of my life, I was a member of the Evangelical Christian community in Loudoun County, Virginia. However, while remaining a community member, especially during my last five years of membership, I perused a more spiritual and less religious understanding of Jesus’ teachings. These last ten years, I have been an independent disciple of Jesus outside of Christian culture. I have been exploring nonduality and its concepts, discovering new paradigms of God’s infinity.
