My mission is to get everybody in this world to self-identify with their God-Self more than their ego-mind. There's not much chance of success in this life, but it's something to do worth doing. I'm called Mark lately.
Eckhart Tolle writes eloquently about how people are insanely self-identified with the voice in their heads and has been writing about it for years. His efforts are deeply appreciated by those individuals he has helped live happier lives. The rest of the world is as goofy as ever.
Schucman and Thetford created a masterwork about how crazy it is to self-identify with that whacky inner voice about 50 years ago. Most people find the book too hard to understand and the message falls flat.
This site may not have much of an impact. Maybe a few people will benefit, or maybe thousands or millions. That's still not much.
Ego-mind through groupthink has a tight grip on the consciousness of the human race and creates a storm of turmoil when challenged. It's very unlikely many will persevere persistently by simply witnessing life nonjudgmentally as God-Self and be unconditionally happy.
People say they want to find inner peace or to know god or to be unconditionally happy. Almost nobody is willing to persistently practice.
You will not be at peace while living as ego-mind dictates. It might make you feel like you're making progress with all manner of convoluted rituals and pretty ideas. It'll fill you full of pride of accomplishment. It'll cause you to feel spiritually superior.
How are you going to know God when you are self-identified as ego-mind, which being entirely dualistic is the antithesis of God? Ego-mind continually comes up with all kinds of nonsense in a ridiculous effort to compete with and replace God. Knowing God that way is impossible.
Your mission and everyone's real mission in life is to know God. A first step is to realize the voice in your head which constantly measures, compares, judges, anticipates, criticises, instills guilt, condemns, and projects your thoughts away from being present, etc. is not you!
It is not easy at first. The way to do it is simple. Imagine your God-Self, which is who you really are, as a nonjudgmental witness to all the antics of ego-mind. Don't approve or disapprove, only witness.
Make it your mission to notice and resist any opposition from ego-mind. It'll do all kinds of stuff to get you off track. Ego-mind will especially try to reinforce prideful feelings and body identification.
For example, if you do a hatha yoga practice you'll be encouraged by ego-mind to compete with others and be consumed with having a beautiful, flexible, chakra-balanced body to be proud of.
Sexual depravity is another way ego-mind gets people away from knowing God. That left-handed path stuff is an ego-mind belief system.
To begin your mission I suggest you get into reading the following along with whatever suits you. Get into the habit of reading.
TED talks, if you don't know, are free video talks of the highest quality. Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor's TED talk presents a very nice idea of the functions of our left and right brain hemispheres from her personal scientific perspective. It coincides well with the ideas presented in Eckhart Tolle's and Helen Schucman's writings.
Let's assume we are all extensions of one God in the eternally present moment, and it's simply a matter of recognition. We literally have all the time in the world and an infinite number of lives to fully recognize our God-Self. There is no reason to hurry.
Following is what my spiritual practice involves. You can do what you feel is best for you. All paths have the same destination.
While meditating I chant "In God We Are One" and listen to a recording of me chanting this phrase endlessly repeating. This has made a remarkable difference in my meditation practice. I suggest you make it your mission to do this or something like it. Listening to a recording of your affirmations in your own voice may be an interesting option.
Centerpointe Research Institute sells CDs using Holosync technology. The CDs will cause your brainwaves to model those of advanced meditators. The Holosync CDs "work" no matter what. Google Centerpointe Research Institute and check out their site.
Including the Gamma Compassion recording from Centerpointe, my practice takes about one and a half hours each morning listening to the Holosync recordings and my chanting simultaneously. I sometimes do a meditation in the evening as well, and continually watch my thoughts mindfully throughout my days.
This practice is simple and works very well. You might think an hour and a half is too much. I would have thought so before I started meditating regularly. Doing a meditation practice grows on you.
I've loaded the CDs and chanting onto my computer and listen with headphones. The chanting is played using Groove Music. The Holosync recordings are played using Windows Media Player and the two recordings come through the headphones simultaneously.
As you may know, I started putting up content on this site in November 2016. The act of putting my beliefs up on the Internet seems to have created a spiritual feedback loop and has made a big difference in my spiritual life. Everything is so much easier. Practicing continual mindfulness used to be an effort and is easy now. I get into it on the "Contribute" page at length. Some stuff has happened that I will not write about, but it's all good, perhaps miraculous.
The term "spiritual feedback loop" came to me out of nowhere and I Googled it. It turns out to be an apt term. You should submit content for this site and see if you get similar benefits. It's free. Go for it!
If you have read down the page this far, God bless you. I'm putting a link here to a page that tells about the origins of this site and more about my life's mission.

Share Your Beliefs.
Don't keep your lamp under a bushel. Giving and receiving are inseparable. One cannot exist without the other.
Our universe rewards generosity. Be generous with your spiritual insights. Share and you will gain new insights.
The goal is to have most of the content consisting of visitor submissions.
There is a growing percentage of the world's population that claims to be spiritual and not religious. This site is targeted particularly toward this particular group of believers.
In the U.S.A. about 20% of the population claims to have no religion. These folks are referred to as the "nones" which from my point of view is misleading.
Everyone has beliefs and values which determine their experiences. We should make an effort to channel the beliefs of the "nones" with a positive and unifying belief system that is all-inclusive.
Pantheism is not a new concept and the time has come to fully embrace it in all its ramifications.
