The Book is Now Available

My new book Remember the Creator is published today (April 1st in America). The subject of the book is summed up in the title. This is the most important thing for modern day humanity; to remember God. But on its own, it is not enough. For what sort of God are we remembering and how are we remembering him? It is a cliché to say that God invented Man in his own image and ever since Man has been returning the compliment, but such is the case. Look at modern religion of practically any type you care to mention. People pray to God, they talk of God but I venture to suggest that the God they address is often one of their own imagining, conjured up from the limited resources of their own minds and a projection of their own thoughts and desires. 

Of course, none of us really knows God. As the absolute and eternal, he is beyond us all. But there really is a difference between those who intuit something of his reality because they have begun to open themselves up to what is beyond themselves, t…

Publication Date

I have neglected this blog because Meeting the Masters and Albion Awakening have taken up my time but I now have a publication date for Remember the Creator which is March 29th in the UK and April 1st in America.

Here is the blurb on the back of the book.

Remember the Creator is a book about the reality
of God and how to become aware of that reality.

Starting from personal experience, it moves on to look at the
evidence for God’s existence and then considers what sort of God he might be. The teachings of Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta are examined but seen as incomplete in the light of the truth that the deepest level of reality must include the personal. Further chapters discuss atheism, morality and suffering, and how these are to be understood from the perspective of a Creator and his purpose in creating, before the conclusion is reached that any true revival of spirituality in the West should be linked to Christ. Finally, we reflect on the modern world and ask what humanity needs to do t…

The latest news on this book is that it will be published in March next year.  Here's a picture of the cover.


Book

I'm leaving this blog dormant for the time being since a book based on some of the posts is currently being prepared for publication. 

The 'blurb' for the book is as follows:

Remember the Creator is about the reality of God, and how everything should be seen in the light of that fundamental reality. Starting from personal experience, the book moves on to looking at the evidence for God’s existence and then considers what sort of God he might be. The teachings of Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta are examined but their basically non-theistic forms of spirituality are seen as incomplete in the light of the truth that the deepest level of being is and must be personal. Other subjects covered include atheism, morality and suffering and how each of these should be seen from the reality of a Creator and his purpose in creating, before the conclusion is reached that any true revival of spirituality in the West should be linked to Christ. However current forms of Christianity are shown t…

Disappearing Posts

I've taken down some of the posts that were previously here as I am  in the process of rewriting them for a book which is expected to be published next year. I've left the ones with comments and one or two others, but most are being redone to make them more suitable for the book format. Also, to remove some of the repetitions that are inevitable when you are doing independent posts, and to reduce the occasional polemical aspect of some of the posts, appropriate to a blog but not for a book. The reduction of polemics does not mean a watering down of the message though!

What is the Left?

I am not interested in politics except as something seen in the light of spiritual truth.  A proper understanding of metaphysics would render most political matters irrelevant in that the way to live would become obvious. But increasingly nowadays politics is used as a weapon against spiritual truth and that is why I must ask, what is the left? Is it merely a political point of view revolving around equality for all which believes in taking power from individuals and giving it to the State for the theoretical benefit of society as a whole, one that is espoused by the more intelligent amongst us as statistics appear to show, or is it, at root, something rather different?
Let's get this idea that the more intelligent a person is, the more likely he or she is to adopt a leftish perspective out of the way first. This may be true up to a point but that's largely because the training of the mind in the modern world is heavily slanted towards atheism and scientific materialism. That i…
