Sound is a prime organizing force pervading all acts of creation. The hidden nature of sound vibration is fiery and magnetic; a key aspect which lies at the root of all manifested form.
The process of form building can be understood as intention which crystallizes into matter by means of the energetic structuring of sound. Understanding sound as causal in the creation process, we begin to grasp the tremendous power it wields. Continue reading
Have you ever wondered why some prayers are answered while others are not? Are some people just born lucky or was it fate? Is there a God who answers the prayers of the faithful but turns a deaf ear to the unworthy? Or is there something to the concept of the law of attraction that might allow people to better control their destiny with conscious effort? The answers to these questions, like many things we encounter in life, lies somewhere in the middle, allowing us to understand how all sides of the argument can be right simultaneously.

One of the key models for goal achievement is that of cause and effect. This model says that your goal is an effect to be achieved, and your task is to identify and then create the cause that will produce the desired effect, thereby achieving your goal.

The modern world can be hard on devout religious believers. Its pluralism denies any one faith the power to organize the whole of social life. Its skepticism about authority undermines the efforts of churches to impose doctrinal discipline on their own members, let alone impose it on those outside the fold. Its economic dynamism unleashes human appetites, and gives individuals the freedom to choose among an ever-expanding range of ways to satisfy them. And its deference to scientific methods of determining the truth erodes received scriptural and theological beliefs. Continue reading
