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.
