Exploring Spirituality

Combining Character and Interfaith Education for a Better World

About This Site

This site is dedicated to sharing experiences and educational tools that will lead us to a better state of mind and a better world.

We are all on this path together; all part of this course by nature of our birth. You could say it's a required course that few bother to take. That's why there's so much suffering in the world and so little peace.

I provide aids and spiritual insights gained at the feet of one of the world's great spiritual teachers, His Holiness Baba Virsa Singh of Gobind Sadan.I also provide educational tools for schools, developed and tested over the past 20 years in what has come to be called character education, using teaching stories and basic principles from all of our traditions. I also use them with congregations and community educators to engage students, young and old, in discussions about ethics and values in public life using the core teachings from the world’s traditions and cultures, practical interfaith education, to build a foundation for a compassionate, pluralistic, civil society.

The class-room lies within our selves and meditation is our method of discovery. The sacred scriptures of the world are our “texts” and those who have embodied God as Messengers and Prophets are our “Teachers.”

I take this course very seriously, and try to spend as much time as possible on my homework - time spent in mediation and prayer, being mindful of God’s presence, and thanking God throughout the day. Much of my day is spent in “research” - thinking about and finding lessons in everyday life, or talking or writing about what I’ve learned. I keep a diary, my class notes, and try to practice the lessons by involving myself in community activities to serve others in need to the best of my ability. Service projects are extensions of our spiritual consciousness and will help overcome the selfishness and greed within ourselves and our society, and by working together we can solve the problems that plague our world.

I like to say that spirituality is not a section in a bookstore. It is the way you see yourself, the world around you, and ultimately the way you live your life. Whether we be children or adults, students or teachers, entrepreneurs or employees, professionals or laborers, clergy or politicians, spirituality orders our lives. Our values grow out of our vision of the world and the more we can see that we and all creation are connected through our Creator the better we will be able to live together in peace and in harmony with our environment.Neither is spirituality passive. It is the force that binds the Cosmos and empowers our dreams.

This site is dedicated to supporting those who like listening to their inner voice as much as they do their ipods - whose inner vision is more powerful than all the networks put together.

It is an online community where all those who are trying to connect or reconnect to their inner Voice can share and find support for their quest, for those who would like to talk about God in public but don’t know how, and for those who like to keep expanding the Big picture.

Peace grows out of our connection with God and each other.
