In the Light of Darkness

Beyond Religion and Science – My Personal Journey

Because your established science conceives of consciousness as a result of material processes instead of the other way around, it cannot fathom the creative and causal powers of the mind. Pamela kribbe, The Jeshua Channelings As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I … Continue reading

A New World

Remember that our goal here is to deny the old and accept the new. In this case, the old you would deny is the idea of a purposeless existence, a universe with no divine order, a life in which you are at the mercy of fate. The new idea you are asked to accept is … Continue reading

Abundance

I have been overwhelmed. For months and even years I have been frustrated with the lack of abundance in my life. I spent a lot of time with especially Days 1, 2 and 3 of the Dialogues of A Course of Love (ACOL): Accept Me (Jesus/Christ), Accept your Self (which ultimately is the same) and … Continue reading

Control versus Faith and Love: Who are We?

On an overlanding tour with tourists some years ago I had a German doctor and his wife. From the beginning this doctor was “difficult”. When somebody got sick on the way to Namibia, I stopped the truck and let the person vomit outside. The doctor complained. Why did we not have more facilities on the … Continue reading

Arrogance, fear, depression and self-worth

When I started guiding many years ago there were no real formal guiding qualifications yet. I had a masters degree in zoology, however, and as a result many saw me as eminently qualified. I didn’t really feel all that qualified, but I liked the idea of being seen as qualified! And so I went through … Continue reading

Love versus fairness

When I first learned about the attributes of original play from Fred Donaldson, I loved it: No competition, no conquest, no winning or losing, and no fairness. No fairness? I had to think about that one a bit. Gradually it dawned upon me. Fairness entails expectation. When I give you something, I expect you to … Continue reading

Materialism, fear and forgiveness

The worker becomes all the poorer the more wealth he produces, the more his production increases in power and range. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates. The increasing value of the world of things proceeds in direct proportion to the devaluation of the world of men. Karl Marx, Economic … Continue reading

Forgiveness: Myth and Reality

I was on a tour through Southern Africa with tourists in 1995, and we arrived at Augrabies Falls just before the rugby world cup started. A room with a television had been set up by the National Parks Board for staff, farmers and other people living in the vicinity of the park. When Nelson Mandela … Continue reading

The human side of racism and the need for evil

The racism debacle is not over yet, and the way things are going it won’t be in the near future – if that is what we choose. This debacle has one underlying assumption: some people (‘good’ by implication) are the unfortunate victims of other people (‘evil’ by implication). If ‘good’ people in different circumstances or … Continue reading

Miracles in action: The Power of Forgiveness

Although I never completed a teaching qualification (I tried twice, then gave up), I spent a number of years teaching at high schools. It was very different from the stuff that I was told about how teaching should be. After teaching at a convent school in a smallish town for a year I resigned. I … Continue reading
