Knowledge is an important component of our spiritual growth.

Over the period of some 30 years, I have written these articles to illustrate a variety of spiritual ideas and principles.

Knowledge can guide us in our practices, let us know what to expect along the way and support us in times of doubt. However, knowledge alone can only take us so far. Direct experience is equally as important so I encourage you to choose the practices which resonate with you and make them part of your daily life.

These articles have been grouped by categories to help you select the ones that may be of greater interest to you. 

Edited versions of some of these articles have been published in other places, including the Chopra Center Lifestyles Newsletters.

I have always tried to fully research each topic and apologize for any inaccuracies. Unlike scientific “facts”, spiritual wisdom is open to interpretation. These articles reflect my understanding of the subjects. Please read them with an open mind and find the path that best suits you.

This connection is like a fine thread, which may become dark and filled with blockages of negativity. By

The Steps to Self-Mastery

Mastery is usually defined as be highly skilled or proficient in one or more areas of life. Self-Mastery takes this to its highest level. To be the Master of our own Self is to fully understand who we really are. It is a discovery of the Guru within, the inner guiding Light. It means taking full responsibility for our own lives. Mastery in this sense doesn’t mean to control in a negative way, it’s the

When We Open Our Arms, We Open Our Hearts

Being English, I have my own experience with hugging. True to my race, I spent most of the first thirty or so years of my life avoiding, what I deemed unnecessary, physical contact. For an Englishman, the most important goal in life is to get through it with the minimum amount of embarrassment. This is very closely followed by the second goal which is to be touched the minimum number of times. Hundreds of years

Enlightened Desire for Ice Cream

We’ve all probably had the experience of the instant fulfillment of a desire, at some time in our life. We thought of something that we really wanted and almost out of the blue, there it was. Somehow we tapped into the field of Infinite Possibilities, where anything is available to us all of the time. Unfortunately, for most of us, these experiences are few and far between and, as a general rule, fulfilling our desires
