The Three Principles and The Direct Path

What is the difference between the Three Principles psychology (3P), a spiritual school that uses the model of Universal Mind, Universal Consciousness and Thought, and direct path methods?

About Needing “Grounding” and Spiritual Teaching

"Grounding"

The question often comes up, what is meant by “grounding”. Am I “grounded” and how can I tell if someone else is “grounded”? The question was spurred by my participation in forums of the spiritual psychology movement known as The Three Principles (3P)*, which is where I hear this question often, and occasionally in the…

  “It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere”  – Agnes Repplier It’s interesting to see how much misunderstanding of the word “spirituality” there is in Western culture.

This makes much more sense to me now. It’s the same consciousness we all are.…

Notes On Personal and Impersonal Love

Love of a person is not love, it is a projection onto an appearance. There is no person in reality – no person or persons – so love of a person is love of an illusion. Yet behind that illusion is reality – the reality of the true Self. So the love is both real…

What is Nonduality?

Nonduality is the cutting edge. It is the cutting edge of spiritual seeking — the end of it; it is the cutting edge of creativity – the source of it… and it is the cutting edge of society: where “thought leaders” hang out (in unknowing). So strap in and take a ride in nonduality, in…
