Welcome to the
Emergent Light Blog

Sharing my passion and interest in the Esoteric Philosophy is a source of tremendous pleasure and personal satisfaction. Having the opportunity to meet directly with groups and live audiences, both in the United States and abroad, has been one of the richest and most treasured aspects of my work. As I continue to travel and teach, I am always exploring methods of communicating this philosophy in ways that have a vital and transforming effect upon those for whom it inwardly touches.

Over the last several years, my commitment to teaching and travel has curtailed my ability to share this philosophy through the written word. Yet to my absolute delight, I see this blog as a unique tool to begin teaching in written form once again. My approach will be to offer you a deep and meaningful understanding of the essential ideas espoused in the Esoteric Philosophy. Generally speaking, these postings will be “brief, but full.”

It is my heartfelt hope that you will find these writings to be informative and uplifting in your life.

The Heresy of Separateness

The Heresy of Separateness The evolution of human consciousness is the matrix underlying the spiritual path.  Indeed, where one stands upon the Path reflects the stage of consciousness that he or she has reached.  Prior to discovering the soul residing deep within (the awakening), the nature of human consciousness is largely governed by the egocentric… Read More »The Heresy of Separateness

The Decentralized Self

The Decentralized Self One of the main objectives of Life, as it evolves through the human kingdom, is something called individualization.

We slowly learn to become introspective and,… Read More »The Decentralized Self

The Dispassionate Disciple

The Dispassionate Disciple Though there are many attributes of consciousness that must be demonstrated when on the Path, none are more salient than dispassion.
