reject concepts with religious tones, let’s think of a few words for “creator”.
How about the Source or “the living matrix’ or “the source field”?
Then there’s Rupert Sheldrake’s
idea of “morphogenetic fields”. Or perhaps you can admit to parallels with
another religious concept that you identify with, but the key here is that
labels don’t matter when it comes to meditation and contemplation, feeling does!
Feel your way past the chatter of
the mind into the realm of the heart where feeling rules.
Thanks to Gail who gave me these books and to David Wilcock who made me aware of them.
