The Spiritual Master — The highest human potential is God-Realization, the complete awakening from this "dream" of limited existence, as the One in Whose Consciousness the dream is arising. And the way to perfect Realization of God is through a moment-to-moment process of communing with God, by feeling God and self, and feeling beyond self to God. But how does one find and feel God for real? All the wisdom traditions of humankind point to a single answer: we locate God (either partially or fully) through the Transmission of a Spiritual Master. So the "how" of Realizing God actually has a simple answer: find a genuine Spiritual Master who transmits the Divine Reality, and become a devotee of His or Her Spiritual Transmission.

Comparative Spirituality 101 Taken together, all the great wisdom traditions around the world and throughout history offer a wide variety of views on (and experiences of) the nature of the Greater Reality and human potential in the context of the Greater Reality. On this site, we make sense of and compare the differing views. We place particular emphasis on the views of materialism, esoteric spirituality, and exoteric religion.

FIRM The Foundation against Intolerance of Religious Minorities (FIRM) advocates the human, social, and civil rights of all religious and spiritual groups, large and small. FIRM provides education on all the varieties of prejudice, both overt and subtle, that are currently being practiced openly against many religious minorities. FIRM also chronicles the history of persecution throughout the ages of religious minorities and their spiritual leaders (including persecution of Christianity in its infancy, leading to the deaths of Jesus and many of his disciples), and it examines the origins of (and the motivations behind) such persecution.

The Institute for Real God The Institute for Real God was created for the purpose of making genuine spirituality and spiritual practice accessible to as many people as possible. It offers a genuine alternative to the most familiar options of our time:

  • conventional religion – We emphasize learning to find God for real, rather than settling for belief only, as members of many traditional religions are taught to do.
  • piecemeal, "do it yourself" spirituality – Our focus is on practices that are systematic in bringing about genuine Spiritual Realization. This, rather than the piecemeal practices and experiences one often finds in many "New Age" circles.
  • scientific materialism – Unlike scientific materialism, we do not exclude the spiritual or the subjective from our study of Reality. We focus on spiritual practices that are based on the full nature of Reality and that can thus identify and realize the greatest human potential.

The COTEDA Institute When it becomes clear that human politics alone (even combined with military might) cannot bring about world peace . . . what will? The human heart has known the answer for centuries. In this darkening world, let us again allow the heart to take the lead. The COTEDA Institute works toward creating global progress, global agreements, and global harmony on the basis of three spiritual principles:
  • The COTEDA principle: COoperation through Transcending Ego and through Divine Assistance
  • The TOTEDA principle: TOlerance through Transcending Ego and through Divine Assistance
  • The PECOTO principle: PEace (and global accord altogether) through self-transcending, spiritually aided COoperation and TOlerance
