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.

Homeward Bound

~ The Soul’s Return to the Ashram ~

…. Within each of us is a hidden yearning for home. Whether living in a mansion or hovel, home is viewed as a place of retreat from the hectic pace and pressure of outer life and career. Though this perception is true for most of us, it is nonetheless a view that arises from the personality (ego), not the soul. For in the eyes of the soul, the notion of home has nothing to do with an exterior place. Rather, it is a place located deep within the recesses of consciousness. Esoterically referred to as the Ashram, this inner home is the soul’s eternal abode.

Found upon the buddhic plane (the plane of intuition), the Ashram is the source of the soul’s inspiration. From it, the soul senses its purpose and seeks to convey that purpose in the outer world. Yet, until the disciple nears enlightenment, his/her sensitivity to the Ashram is only partial, and therefore imperfect. Indeed, the degree to which an individual is receptive to ashramic guidance is a measure of where s/he stands upon the Path. In this workshop we will closely examine the Six Stages of Discipleship that lead an individual into the Ashram, and the degree of ashramic intimacy that each stage reflects. Below are some of the additional topics that will be presented and discussed. I hope you can join us.

  • The Seven Ashrams and their influence in human affairs
  • Ashramic requirements: Transmutation – Transformation – Transfiguration
  • Recognizing the influence of the Black Lodge as it seeks to block the Way
  • The Soul’s Gesture for Liberation
  • Buddha and His wisdom applied to modern day discipleship
