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 Law of Attraction: A Governing Law of the Soul

The Law of Attraction ~ A Governing Law of the Soul ~ Over the course of countless incarnations, the personality will dominate human consciousness.  It psychologically emphasizes a separative perspective in life and, due to its influence, the lower-ego arises.  One’s individuality becomes dearly prized, and a sense of his or her uniqueness looms large… Read More »The Law of Attraction: A Governing Law of the Soul


Ahamkara ~ Matrix for the Heresy of Separateness ~ The Path is one that has many hindrances and obstacles along the way.  Such things as emotional glamour, mental illusion and the deflecting power of maya pose much challenge to all who struggle to transform themselves into selfless servants in support of the soul.  Yet these… Read More »Ahamkara
