"May all sentient beings enjoy happiness and the root of happiness.

May we be free from suffering and the root of suffering.

May we not be separated from the great happiness devoid of suffering.

May we dwell in the great equanimity, free from passion, aggression, and prejudice."

Our Mission & Purpose:
To support people in their search for more fulfilling lives.

On this site you will find information about a great many subjects. Some of it might even seem "out of place". However, it is our desire to help you find some of the "tools" that are available for learning about Unconditional Love, Forgiveness, and about being fulfilled & happy. Some of this requires "returning to our roots", if you will, in the sense that we must un-learn much of what we have learned, and re-learn much that has been "lost or forgotten" as we have lost touch with ourselves in our headlong rush into our "modern" lives.

"Unconditional Love?", you may ask; "...that can only come from God..." Well, it can and does come from us as well, and we will attempt to help you understand it, learn about it, and learn how to give it and receive it. Unconditional love is, in essence, the acceptance of our imperfection and that of others, and the realization that within the great imperfection lies the beauty of what we really are.

"Forgiveness?, how do we 'do' forgiveness?" Again, it is one of those "abilities" that we have somehow "forgotten", or never knew, and that we have made "conditional" upon the behavior of others. And that is not what true forgiveness is. We will help you re-discover the meaning of forgiveness, as well as offer you aids in your quest to find it. True forgiveness liberates the forgiver, and has little to do with the forgiven.

"Why all this 'stuff' about Essenes and Aramaic?" The Essenes were a people from the middle east, whose known writings date to around 100-200 BC. They are "special" in that they practiced  fundamental, universal laws of man with zeal and wholehearted dedication; they were very much aware of "our" place within ourselves, the world and the universe. Perhaps most importantly and unlike others who were like them, they left their writings behind for us to find.

The Essenes and their beliefs were very influential during the time of Christ, and there are a great many theories about them which we will neither endorse nor deny here. We simply make use of their deep knowledge of man, the spirit, and our place in the universe, as building blocks towards a better life for us today, and as an example of what we believe man was meant to be; united and "whole"; with himself, the earth, the universe, and the rest of mankind. Aware of one's gifts and limitations, and desirous of finding deeper knowledge and of learning and practicing how to be a better "citizen of the universe".

"What about all the psychology material?" As modern man, we have learned over the last few hundred years to "believe" in science and in what can be "proven" through scientific means. Since we do not expect anyone today to "magically" or with "blind faith" just accept what in many ways may amount to a 180 degree turn from what we have learned and believed most of our lives, there are many areas of Psychology, Transactional Analysis, and Personality studies which "help" us better understand some of these realities, in a way that is more familiar to us; more "scientific" (if you will), and grounded in a science that we can relate to. In addition, there are a great many areas of these sciences, the comprehension of which will help us understand ourselves, and grow as individuals and as members of the universal community. It is our concession to the reality that modern man has become somewhat incredulous of things which cannot be "scientifically" demonstrated.

How this "marriage" to the belief in scientific evidence occurred, why, and what it might mean to us personally, are the reasons for having a section about "Philosophy". Here we explore the roots of this change in man, a change that is relatively recent, (from the last two centuries or so), and through it we can see examples of other peoples and how they have retained their beliefs and grounding in their ancestors' teachings, and to show why we may want to "return to our roots" in this sense.

"Spirituality?"...As is often the case, we quickly find that everything about our lives; relationships, issues, successes and failures, even happiness, is related to our personal beliefs. We often turn to our faith for guidance and answers. In support of this fundamentally human inclination, we have included spiritual material here. As always, we do not promote or reject any individual faith or belief system; we respect individual choice in this, and the materials you will find here are presented as they pertain to universal messages, common to most religions and faiths. In fact, we believe that as we delve into these, we soon discover that most faiths express the same beliefs, values, and goals, they simply use different symbolism. The Hindu and Buddhist teachings in particular, are universal.

We believe that by following your heart in selecting and exploring the material here, you will find the right combination for you; the material which will support your need and desires, as well as the material that can answer some of the questions you will face in your quest. To this end, we earnestly request your feedback and opinions, and we thank you in advance!

We hope you will enjoy your visit here, and that you will find value, comfort and inspiration in what we have selected and put together.

Sincerely, WELCOME!

With all our love, unconditionally!

A Definition of Unconditional Love

Love without condition

"I love you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate to the world, or the way you feel that is right for you. It is important that you are the person you want to be and not someone that I or others think you should be."

Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority,
or if it is said to come from angels,
or from Gods,
or from an inspired source.

Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.

Work out your own path,
through diligence.

Gautama Buddha

"Homage to the enlightened Buddha-Guru,

who placed enlightenment in the palm of my hand.

May your heart & mind, and mine, remain inseparable

for the limitless benefit of one and all."
Lama Surya Das


"I meditate on Him who is the creator of the universe. May He enlighten my mind."
Swami Vivekananda


"I believe there is an important distinction to be made between religion and spirituality. Religion I take to be concerned with belief in the claims to salvation of one faith tradition or another-an aspect of which is acceptance of some form of meta-physical or philosophical reality, including perhaps an idea of heaven or hell. Connected with this are religious teachings or dogma, ritual, prayers and so on.

Spirituality I take to be concerned with those qualities of the human spirit-such as love and compassion, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, contentment, a sense of responsibility, a sense of harmony, which bring happiness to both self and others."

His Holiness the Dalai Lama


Dedication of Merit

 

Throughout my many lives and until this moment,

Whatever virtue I have accomplished,

Including the merit generated by this work,

And all that I will ever attain,

This I offer for the welfare of all sentient beings.

 

May I quickly attain Enlightenment

In order to work ceaselessly

For the liberation of all sentient beings.
