Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing,

there is a field. I will meet you there.

My interest in theology was quickened when, in the nineties, I ‘accidentally’ ended up as a part-time lecturer in the then Rhodes University Divinity Department. Since then I have been exploring this subject in ever-increasing depth, expanding it to a study of the world’s main religions.

What then, you may ask, do I stand for? How do you believe?

Well, I think of myself as a Christian, in that I uphold the teachings of the Universal Christ especially those of non-judgment and unconditional love.

My quest is for a better understanding of universal truth – that Truth which knows no opposite. I ever seek to improve my relationship with the Divine and to better understand my essential nature.

Thanks to my travels through various countries I have learnt to recognize soul rather than culture, colour or creed. We are all from the same Source. Indeed, God continually expresses his Greatness through the immense diversity we see all around us.

As a New Thought Christian I hold that all the main religions of the world are divinely inspired. For me religion is precious; it is personal rather than institutional. We need to respect each person’s journey. As Bishop Desmond Tutu puts it, God is not a Christian.  Thus, rather than conform to a particular dogma, I choose to give attention to Spirit, to that which is Omnipresent.

This is where I currently am in consciousness; it is quite a struggle to put such thoughts to paper as the mere act of doing so pushes me to be clear within myself. I do not set out to be ‘right’ nor complete but rather to journal my current thinking and hopefully trigger similar processes in you. Please feel free to share your thoughts on these matters with me.

Consciousness is an ever unfolding process and I do believe that giving attention to what we believe in and stand for grows us as individuals, especially if we maintain an  openness to the thoughts of others.
