One World part and parcel of One Universe and One God
A word about this Dedication Page:
This website and page is dedicated to those wishing to find unity within the diversity of life and thus to holistically dissolve our illusions of separation of God and human kind, nature from spirit or even life from death, for whet we experience is simply the One God manifesting as His/Her/Our many facets and realities. We have been taught since childhood that Man and God, Heaven and Earth, Science and Spirit, Male and Female, Up and Down, Right and Left are separate. But in fact each one cannot exist without the other, for each one helps create the other. Life and the Universe is one Grand co-creation with Spirit, but with contraste so we have the perception of depth, of reality and of LIFE LIVED ... LIFE LOVED!
As King Tutankhamen realized, "Thy Gods are One", thus we have the expression, "Hear oh Israel, the Lord thy God is One". And, so, we are at our core one people, manifesting our individual facets or ideas of what God is to us, individually. Though God is one, as the Muslims say, "He has many faces" and many names. And so it is that I (Rev. John) heard one of my teachers say, many years ago, "As you touch and are touched, you know not how close you come to touching the face of God". This inspired me to begin to find God in everything and every one that I touch and I hope it inspires you to find the God within all life ... even within YOU!
Since many of us like to believe that we live between two worlds, this dedication page is set in two columns, below. One will be for the unseen potentials that have brought this website into reality and the other for the seen or actualized, kinetic or "physical" people and events that have helped shape what is here. Thus I leave it to the reader, all students of the Divine within, to see the unity between and within the diversity presented below.
Wisdom often comes from dichotomies or from sitting on the horns of dilemmas.

Just as Ethel and Jack Rowe, and their Mystical United Spiritualist Church in Anaheim CA, this church has roots in Gnosticism, which was another Major train of Christian thought, supported by Thomas, Mary Madgelene, Phillip, Jesus' Brother James and Jesus' himself, in his days and times (but not by Paul or Peter).
More recently, our spiritual roots touched into the Christian Mysticism of Sweedenborg and the Transcendentalist movement in the United States, which has roots in India (where Jesus was in those "missing years") and with the French and English philosophers that inspired the formation and settlement of these United States of America in the 1600s and 1700s.
Much of this, but not all, is covered on our page on "A History of Spiritualism".
John often leads Spirit or is lead by Spirit, when they go on walks.
And, since my wife, Reverend Martine, moved on into the Greater Light, through the door that we call "death" on 30 January 2013, I (Brother John, the webmaster) is dedicating this website and its contents to her as well, along with our dog "Spirit" (shown in the picture).
However, it is the life, light and love of conscious energy, that we call consciousness, that creates the body; not the other way around. Thus I know that she lives on in the Greater Light of All Creation and loves on as well, for like the soul, love never dies. For, the soul is another manifestation of the energy and awareness of love, also.
And, As we both still live, on either side of what our religions call "the veil" (of forgetfulness ... of Who We Really Are, which is LOVE), we can and do still communicate. Thus, Martine has told me, "I may be 'dead', but I'm not gone."
Now, consider your friends and relatives who have "gone" before you! They, too are still quite alive,, but their just not in our conscious awareness, in THIS reality. We forget that there are trillions, and possibly more< "realities throughout the universes and dimensions, so the possibilities are literally mind blowing. So, don't even try to "wrap your head around" all this, but do ponder it in your heart! For the linear mind is too limited in its concepts to understand these unlimited "quantum" ideas from spirit!
P.S. Martine's last words, before leaving her body behind so that it may rejoin its elements with the earth from which it was made, through a Shared Near Death Experience (SNDE), were, "I'm going out the door now. You can stay and rest and take care of what you need to. Then, you can catch up with me later!" THIS IS A CLEAR INDICATION THAT THERE IS NO DEATH ... ONLY LOVE!
