Bio: Credo. I believe the Cosmos is benevolent. I believe that All are One and that Life is evolutionary, relational and good. I believe Creation is designed by and intrinsically moves toward Light. Life seems to be time-bound but is gifted with imagination and creativity that seek to express a Potentiality, which is timeless. I believe that Reality is divine and that world religions have developed as a way of assisting humankind in their efforts to establish order, affirm common values and ethics, and to satisfy the human quest for meaning. Authentic religion is built on the equal foundations of community and transformation (primarily corporate and secondarily, individual). Creeds are foundational, institutional statements that endorse membership by acknowledgement and agreement. Beliefs are authentic when they are a lived reality. Foundations of belief (doctrines, dogma) are created. Grounding is participation in the truth of Reality, which is Being, the truth of “what is.” Those rare Ones who live authentically, resonating the truth of Reality, transcend religion, denomination, culture, heritage and all that separates what is unified or affirms hierarchical systems. Those Ones are through All, with All, and in All. They are wholly human and have relinquished personal desires. For them, Presence is Now. They are motivated by gratitude and generativity. I believe the Cosmic ending will mirror the Cosmic beginning: what we have named "the Big Bang." It will not be an "ending" as we imagine it, but a transition, a transformation, a transfiguration, a shifting into a new and more abundant Reality. Amen.
