We have developed Esotherapy as the art and science of esoteric wisdom centered therapy. True therapy creates connectedness in thinking, in feelings and with the world. Conversely, the matrix of dualistic knowledge on which “modern cultures” are built expounds a dualistic view of a granular world composed of divided “entities.” Such a view engenders illness in the form of chronic feelings of disconnection and alienation, stress, depression, anxiety, environmental, social and family breakdown and physical illnesses. Medical research on bio-markers has shown that feelings of disconnection are associated with increased tissue inflammation, the foundation of almost all of the physical illnesses. Thus, feelings of disconnection are the real source of both mental and physical diseases. The focus of esoteric and mystical wisdom being transcending dualistic world concepts into non-dual awareness, these disciplines the best suited as the foundation of new mental and physical therapies.
The brain of Esotherapy is esoteric or non-conceptual wisdom. This wisdom arises when we transcend the dualistic boundaries of conceptual knowledge, developing a unified nondual view of the world. Pondering and discussing mystical quotes helps you transcend the sanctioned granular view of our mental "world" that has little to do with Creator's world and everything to do with a culturally sanctioned duality matrix of understanding that we need to transcend to attain the serene harmony we desire for ourselves and our world. What is the meaning of Thomas Merton's quote, below:
"A tree gives glory to God by being a tree. For in being what God means it to be it is obeying [God]. It "consents," so to speak, to [God's] creative love. It is expressing an idea which is in God and which is not distinct from the essence of God, and therefore a tree imitates God by being a tree"
The views presented on this blog are meant to transcend divisive concepts (i.e.,, male and female, human and non-human, individual and society) in order to help us experience our true Self: The One Life-at-Large expressed in many fleeting life-forms that comprise Creation. The purpose of these posts is to dissolve the divisions created by the culturally sanctioned matrix of dualistic knowledge that has divided our awareness of the world into isolated etntities, always competing or at war with each other. All diseases, greed, famine and world wars arise from such a view. Consequently, these posts seek to unite opposiing competing viewpoints, equaliy validating and invalidating the polarity of their arguments, and presenting them as what we believe they trully are: one-sided views of an unified Truth without divisions. We hope that by attaining this Truth, you will come to live serenely in the peace and harmony of spirit that is our Creator given right, thereby restoring the harmony fractured by the matrix of dualistic knowledge.
In line with the purpose stated above, instead of writing about "myself," I will write in the way of a Higher Truth. I will write about "us," because I do not, nor have I ever existed on my own... I am an emanation of the "us" collective state of being just like an apple is emanation of the apple tree. This "us" is a collective "Self" formed of Tahlia, Rebekah, Ishti, Gerald, Marcellus Bearheart (deceased Muskogee Indian medicine man), Ted Phelps (deceased Lakotah Sweatlodge and Sundance Leader), the mountains and rivers that taught me their lessons, the trees that fill my lungs with air, my four legged and winged brothers and sisters of the air, all the finned ones that swim, those who have hurt and helped me equally, and all the other teachers that are too many to list. I am only their emanation - I am nothing without them. Thank you for reading this blog, your interest inspires me to continue exploring new life purpose, meaning and healing through the development of spiritually guided therapy. Mitakuye Oyasin!
