Coming out of the reflective nature and the thought-entities it manifests through the presence of Christ in the intellect.



Jesus Christ was crucified through the agency of the reflective nature in the form of political and religious powers and principal­ities and the human instrumentalities of the thought-entities manifested through the reflective nature.

Politics is the use of and possession by the reflective nature to guide, inform, manage, and influence human relations and public affairs through the agency of political institutions and the human instru­mentalities of the thought-entities…

The renewal of the intellect in Christ's Living and Continuous Presence



The spirit of Jesus Christ is come and in Christ's presence I am drawn out of the reflective nature and drawn into the direct awareness of the increase and decrease of the intensity of Christ's presence as the faculty through which my interactions and relationships are guided.

In the presence of Christ, I am not of the reflective nature and do not participate or engage in the reflective process, or own the thought-entities manifested through the reflective nature, to guide and…

In the spirit of Christ, being drawn out of the reflective nature to guide human relation



Awareness of the inshining presence of the spirit of Jesus Christ guides and informs my relationships and interactions. This awareness of the Spirit’s presence seated in my consciousness and conscience and the experience of its relative intensity through awareness of the increase or diminishment of the light of the spirit is, in itself, the faculty which anchors my consciousness and informs my conscience. In the power and presence of the spirit of Christ, the faculty of reason or…

Spiritual life along Oregon's coastal mountain range

In the Coastal Mountain Range

The other day I was wading in a stream that runs through a dingle nestled in the coastal mountains along Oregon's south coast. I was there to observe American Dippers as they gleaned food by diving beneath the surface of the stream. It was a cool and dark down in the dingle. Yet, the sun illuminated the top of the mountains as its bright light slowly descended down the face of the wooded ridge and filled the dampened dingle first with a tawniness…

Life drawn into the power of the spirit of Christ and drawn out of the reflective nature.

Today the presence of the spirit of Christ is discovering to me a life in the presence of the immanent being of God itself ... drawn out of the reflective nature and into the holy nature as sufficient in itself to guide and inform human relationships and interactions

Living in the intuitive presence of Christ during persecution by the agents and agencies of the reflective nature.

The world is ruled by the faculty of the reflective nature. Human relations are guided and informed by and through the agency of political, religious, educational, commercial, industrial, and economic institutions and the individual agents of those institutions. Those who have been drawn outside the reflective nature and into the direct rule of the spirit of Christ in the conscience, often find that the agencies and agents of the reflective nature will seek to force those in the intuitive…

Drawn outside the reflective nature to guide human relations.

There are people who testify to the witness of how the Holy Spirit leads them to minister (guide and inform human relations) to others through the faculty of the reflective nature; manifested in their reflecting upon other people and circumstances through political and religious intellectual constructs. I am drawn into a different way.

Through the power and presence of the spirit of Jesus Christ in my conscience  and…

Established in the living and continuous presence of Jesus Christ

We live in social contexts (the world over) wherein human relations are guided, informed, and governed by the reflective nature through the agency of political, religious, educational, and economic institutional structures and the individual agents of those institutions. There is a different way wherein human relations are guided through the agency of the direct and continous experience of the spirit of Jesus Christ in the conscience and consciousness. In this indwelling experience, people are… Continue

The power of the inshining presence of Jesus Christ is eternal consciousness.

The inshining spirit of Jesus Christ has replaced and is replacing the reflective process as guide to inform my human relationships through the agency of awareness of the intensity of the Spirit's presence in a given interaction or circumstance. This agency or faculty of awareness is become and is becoming the foundation of my conscience and consciousness in matters of human relations.



I am in a spirit of thankfulness for the indwelling presence and agency of the spirit of Jesus… Continue

Freedom from the Reflective Nature in human relations. Being born into a different faculty.

The faculty of direct awareness of the impulse of Jesus Christ in the conscience.

Freedom from the Reflective Nature in human relations.

A Testimony from a Witness

There is a different faculty of human relations which is not of the nature of reflective thought. This faculty is the direct awareness of the intensity of the inshining spirit of Jesus Christ. This impulse manifests as dilating and contracting during…

Early Quaker William Rogers and Gospel Order

At some time around the middle or end of the 1640s, some of the Children of Light, who came to be called Quakers, gathered together. The Quaker gathering experienced a disaffection between one another a decade later. Some were lead to engage in the reflective nature by establishing various outward formalities as incumbent upon all members to practice and perform. Some of those in the gathering who (for conscience sake) were guided and informed in the practice of these formalities, like…

The Christonomous Life: Beyond individualism or Communalism

There is a way of being or consciousness that experiences the appearance of self-evident and self-sustaining (eternal) life, and through this experience, the awareness of the fluxation in this immanent presence in the conscience manifests a different faculty which regulates and guides human relations and interactions in daily activities . This intuitive faculty manifests as awareness of a fluctuation in the intensity of Life itself in a given circumstance or interaction. For example, an…

William Salt - an early Quaker drawn out of the reflective nature and contention and strife.

Many people have asked me in the past which early Quaker I most sense a fellowship. Their question was difficult for me to answer. I could name names, however, I was compelled to add numerous qualifications. Generally, I would say John Perrot, and then add qualifications. William Salt is an early Quaker with whom I sense a deep and abiding fellowship without qualification. My research so far suggests he first shows up as a companion of George Fox in their endeavors to spread the news of the…

William Rogers writes in 1680 on the spiritual experience of early Quakers

To Conclude this Preface, ‘tis with me to say, unto every one (through the Nations) called by the name Quaker, on this wise.

Let the remembrance of the dayes that are past come before you, wherein the Servants of the Living God, Labourers {Preface XXXVII} in the Gospel (in the beginning of the latter Day of the Ministration of Light) sounded by his trumpet an Alarm to the Nations. And what said the voice…

In the Life itself the need for prophets and prophecies is fulfilled.

In a recent article entitled "Jesus wasn't nice ..." Micah Bales wrote:

And it gets me to wondering: How would Jesus speak to us?

and

The prophets are those people who hear and proclaim the words of God.

When the season of the outward ministration of others is passed and fulfilled in the everliving presence of Christ.

In an article published in The Friends Journal entitled "A Parallel Universe" the author writes:

The Spirit works on us to enable us to give something of what we have received to others, to act as a mirror. So it& is that God works not only directly but through human beings, each upon another.

Living in the primary and sufficient government of the spirit of Christ and being drawn out of the process of reflective thought as primary authority over human relationships and interactions.

People's relationships and interactions are generally mediated through the interplay between feelings, will, perceptions, sensations, and thoughts (the functions of the body). The appearance of the immanent and everliving presence of the spirit of Christ in the conscience sometimes draws people out of the process of being or life that is mediated through the reflective function of the body in matters relating to human interaction; they are come into relationships and interactions being…
