Mike Shreve was a teacher of yoga at four
universities. (The portrait above was drawn by one of his students in
1970.) Then a spiritual rebirth brought him into a real relationship
with God and drastically changed his heart, his life and his belief
system. Read his story here.
This site is
dedicated to every seeker of truth. Our hope is to assist you in your quest.
Together we will
explore the beliefs of the eleven main living religions,
as well as numerous other religions, sects and teachers.
As we examine these
worldviews, we will
discover both amazing similarities and evident contradictions.
We may not always agree on final conclusions,
but we can all agree on initial questions - the questions that echo
within the heart of collective humanity:
"Who am I?" - "How did I get here?" - "Why am I
here?"-"Where am I going?"
These oft-spoken words
bind us together - regardless of race, culture or religion -
for there is a common cry within the hearts of all men.
Before we even
discover the answers, just asking the questions connects us, not only
with each other, but with the real meaning of life. Yes, it is true -
"Religion is the first thing and the last
thing, and until a
man has found God, and been found by God, he begins at no
beginning and works to no end."
- H. G. Wells
So true spirituality
is the alpha and omega of earthly existence, because -
"He who has no vision of eternity has no
hold on time."
- Thomas Carlyle
all about this very thing - sharing with thirsty pilgrims
a "vision of eternity," that will enable them to have a
"hold on time" - an ability to 'grip' life with deep love,
abiding peace, strong confidence and passionate purpose.
Does this sound
appealing? If so, you may want to continue.
