Is this really that complicated?

In my last post, the “end of the world” I showed the correct translation should be “the completion of the age.” For twenty centuries, Christianity has said the “Lord” was coming back at the “end of the world.” They have not questioned this “end of the world” or Jesus’ return for 20 centuries. This has […]

Are you striving for the new Age?

I remember seeing a movie with some weird looking man standing on a street corner holding a sign that read, “the end is near.” Yes the end is near, but not for the world, but for the old world “order.” This order is authoritarianism in many forms such as tyrants, dictators, fanatics etc. It demands […]

Is this really happening?

In Texas, a recent state law took effect requiring public campuses (which includes all public schools) to display any donated items bearing the phrase, “In God We Trust.” Some other states also have similar laws. And who is this “God” – as of now, this “God” has not been defined by the Texas Senate Bill […]

I was looking for an answer

“Yoga essentially means that in search of well being, you do not look up, you do not look out – you look inward.” Sadhguru calls this “inner engineering”, I call it the complete “spiritual science” which I briefly introduced in my last post. Jesus said, “the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21 I […]

My search for a spiritual “science”

Sir Francis Bacon, 1561–1626, is best known for leading the scientific revolution with his new “experimentation and observation” theory, which is the way science has been conducted ever since. Using this new method, much progress has occurred in the physical and social sciences. By experimentation and observation of the physical world, science has learned much […]

Existential Seeking

As I studied all religions, I did find Each one had not always been so kind. When they have acted lovingly instead, They have followed this golden thread. Copyright © 2013 by Ralph Calabria Through these posts, I am sharing my insights with other seekers, those people who are searching, questioning, exploring, and earnestly seeking […]

My Journey

It wasn’t until many years later, after composing the “Religion” poem, (previous post) looking at my journey in retrospect, that I realized I had traversed through a trajectory of those three distinct mindsets. I later termed them exoteric, mesoteric, and esoteric paradigms. My lived experience gave me insight I could not have gained any other […]

Time to Move On

Friends, after eight years of writing this blog, I’ve decided to move on to other projects. It’s been fun, occasionally difficult, and everything in-between. I learned a lot and hope you gained at least a few useful insights. Thanks to Diane for putting up with me and my meandering drafts (she is a wizard!) and […]
