Is There Proof That "God" Exists? - by Eric Allen Bell

One's own existence seems self-evident....

And yet there really isn't any proof -

not objective proof anyway -

that you exist.

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…

Meditations on Ego and Enlightenment - by Eric Allen Bell


Over a long enough period of time, the survival rate for your body is zero.  Contained within the body is the brain and one of the functions of the brain is the ego.  The ego is the self concept of the brain-body organism and it does not like what was just said one bit.


And there are different states of consciousness than just ego.  The ego is like a dog you bring with you on a journey. Untrained, it will run off, bite others and come back to bite you.  But trained and disciplined it knows its place. It can sense things, warn you of danger, protect you.  As the saying goes, "Ego is an excellent servant and a horrible master".  …

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…

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…

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…

The Beauty is in the Flaw - by Eric Allen Bell

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…

Only just signed up, went the Hare Krishna page that you'd written, then notice there were only two people on line, you and I! Just another strange odd 'coincidences' around the subject of Krishna since I first encountered KRSNA consciousness

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.
