Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
One does not need to believe in God to be a practicing mystic. It doesn’t take a priest or rabbi or an Imam to get you there. Anyone can have a connection to Divine Source; but it takes practice—a spiritual practice. We often begin our spiritual journey with inherited doctrines, established traditions, families, churches, and cultures that lay out the rules and regulations. However, if we’re a person who possesses spiritual enthusiasm, our journey is an evolutionary one; it involves transformation. For some of us, as we mature, we begin to think independently, ask new questions, and arrive at our own conclusions about matters of divinity. This is the quest of Jan Phillips, a former postulate of the Catholic church. Here she reveals her religious crucible and the wisdom she’s gained along the way. She says, “I’m no longer a seeker, I’m a finder. Every morning, I find my source. As I say in one of my poems, ‘I eat God for breakfast, and all day long. I metabolize love'."
