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.

William Meader

~ Transforming the Echoes of Atlantis ~ The crises now facing humanity are remarkably similar to the events that determined the fate of ancient Atlantis.  At that distant time, individualism and unbridled desire were the driving forces of civilized life.  As a consequence, this gave birth to social inequality, separative attitudes and rampant materialism.  And though Atlantis is of prehistoric antiquity, its echoes are loudly reverberating in our world today. Yet unlike the catastrophic demise that befell that ancient land,…
