Wishful Thinking: A Cheap Alternative to Inquiry

The newer popular alternatives to religion, that come in the form of new age spirituality such as "The Secret" are just as loony as the promise of heaven for the believer, and a lake of hellfire for the nonbeliever. This ever so intoxicating form of…Continue

Religion: The Great Polluter of Collective Consciousness

Organized religion has contributed greatly to an overall global atmosphere of fear - the fear of others, the fear of a great lake of hell fire that awaits the nonbeliever. It holds back our collective consciousness and it holds down our collective…Continue

If a book guides you, my feeling is that such a book would not be as reliable a guide as love. Best to follow the heart, even foolishly at times, if one is to be a real human being. My heart tells me that the world is in a desperate state of crisis…Continue

Atman is Brahman - by Eric Allen Bell

 

If you consider yourself to be on any kind of spiritual path, you very likely have had a tendency to be too hard on yourself.  You try not to think negative thoughts, to avoid judging others, to avoid "sin".  One definition of the word "sin" is "separation from God". We want to avoid our dark side and become more of "how we are supposed to be". This way of thinking occurs probably not as the result of religion, but rather religion has sprouted as the result…

What is the True Meaning of Yoga? - by Eric Allen Bell

 

With each passing day, as I look inward and as I take in what is going on with the world outside, my heart opens. And the more it opens the more I understand why I have kept it shut for so long. The more my heart opens, the more I understand why the world has closed its heart.

 

 

I find it harder and harder to criticize the world from a place of anger or disappointment. The screwed up world and the screwed up self are not only reflections of each other, they are one in the same. I am the suffering and the beauty and everything in between - not as some new philosophy but as a felt experience, moment by…

What Does It Mean to be Free?

Have you ever felt caged inside your body, longing to be free? Who is that which has such a desire? If you are only your flesh and bones, then who or what is it that longs to break free of all of it?

Is it just a chemical reaction in the brain, buzzing inside your head - a frustration, an agitation, a scratching at the inside of a prison wall?  Who is scratching?  Who are you, if you are not the prison itself but the one who feels trapped within it?

There are men with letters after their names, resigned to a certain cynicism, who will tell you that consciousness is merely a projection of the brain, merely the result of neurological activity. And yet…

Who Am I? - by Eric Allen Bell

 

When it comes to the subject of Enlightenment I am no authority. I do not possess special knowledge nor do I profess to speak to you now from some elevated state. On all matters Divine there is but one authority and that is The Great Mystery.

Enlightenment is often said to be a state of conscious communion with Divine Source.

According to some spiritual traditions this state is something of a finish line. One's existence is seen to be a cycle of birth, death and rebirth as one's soul perfects their karma and eventually reaches a state of Nirvana or pure…

What Happens When I Die? - by Eric Allen Bell

Art by Alex Grey



In order to answer the question, "What happens when I die?" I feel it is important to take a look at something a bit less speculative and that is the question of what happens when we live.



There is no way to understand death if you don't know what life is. What happens between the moment you take your first breath and the moment you draw your very last?



Who is it that is looking out through your eyes?



Is it not the same quality of awareness that existed right before you read these words? Is that quality of awareness not the same quality that existed yesterday and the day before?



And that awareness, the pure state of awareness was there before you could form words or even knew your name. It is independent of personal history, of labels, of…

The Part is Not Separate From the Whole - by Eric Allen Bell

 

If the body gets the flu, I'm not sick, the body is.

If the mind is traumatized, I'm not traumatized, the mind is.

If the heart is broken, I'm not broken, the heart is.

I am not who I think I am - I am therefore I think.

The part is not separate from the whole.

A Fear of Death - By Eric Allen Bell

 

I went skydiving for the first time in tandem and the parachute did not open properly. We jumped from over 2 miles up in the sky out of a small aircraft and at about 3,000 feet the instructor cut the chute loose.  I asked him what was going on and he didn't answer me.  I could see the ground coming at me fast.  When I jumped out of the airplane, I knew to expect a feeling of free fall, but I did not expect to have that feeling twice.  It was as if I had been pushed down an elevator shaft.  I kept asking the instructor what was going on and still there was no answer.

 

Then I felt this tremendous tug at my rib cage as the free fall slowed down.  The instructor had dispatched the emergency parachute. All of the little squares down on the Earth below had…

Why I Do Not Hate Muslims - by Eric Allen Bell

The mandate of Islam is to force the world to submit to Islam.  Our leaders tell us that Islam means peace. But lying about something does not make it so.  Islam means submission. Islam opposes free speech, free thought and human rights. 

Sharia Law is the codification of the Quran.  The Quran is the holy book in Islam.  Sharia mandates the stoning of women for adultery or being raped, it requires the amputation of limbs for theft, the hanging of homosexuals and death to anyone who dares to leave Islam.  Islam is the religion of approximately 1.5 billion people on the planet at this time.  According to the Pew Forum, when…

Letting the World into Your Heart

“The world is illusion, only God is real. The world is God.”


By Gangaji

 

Someone asked me recently about the connection between spiritual awakening and the actual state of the world. I don’t see any disconnection there. The root of political and social activism is freedom, and the root of spiritual awakening is freedom.

 

Freedom is really just the beginning. We need social and spiritual freedom to consciously evolve. We need to be free of the burdens of dogma and social constraints (internal or external) to consciously discover. We need to be free as spiritual beings and we need to be free as human beings…

Hello Eric, and thanks for the Friend add; it's nice to meet you after all these years.  I much admire the work you do.  I have a blog you might check out sometime, that's more selfish, concerned with my odd circumstances and a novel I recently completed (it will never be finished) that was inspired by an enlightening experience I had 6 years ago after the deaths of my then-extant family members, the loss of my job, home, and possessions, and the bottom generally falling out of my life.  Until you have lost everything, you cannot gain anything.  Anyway, thank you again, and the link to my site is here below.

An Open Letter...

Hello Eric, thanks for adding me. So pleased to see your a spiritual man. Spirituality have been kidnapped by the male dominant, established religions, mainly in our days the Abrahamic religions, but not only them. Returning to spirituality as a true path for a human, without a feeling of being odd or having guilt for it, but to be meet by appreciation and respect might be a future we will see.

I have run across a genius who has uncorked more of the universe's natural spiritual laws than anything else I've ever tried (my previous favorites were Yogananda and Hindu raja yoga but these techniques take forever and are hit and miss).  These technique simply work, relatively quickly, every time if done exactly, similar to chemistry and physics laws in the physical universe to take you out the top.
