The Heartsight raison d'ętre is uncompromisingly based upon THE VISION. The emphasis is on the definite article. It is not my vision, your vision, but THE VISION. No man can claim superiority over his fellows by making THE VISION his exclusive personal property. There is no copyright on THE VISION. THE VISION deals with the things Isaiah said when he saw His (God's) glory and spoke of it. And what did he say? "The whole earth is full of his glory." This is THE VISION that is, "Yet for the appointed time; it hastens towards the goal, and it will not fail (lie). Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay." The absolute certainty of THE VISION is based upon two glorious, unchangeable realities: God cannot lie and God cannot die.
 
The unveiling to Isaiah of the nature of reality was precipitated by the rediscovery of the truth that God is One, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, and besides this One, there is none other. Moreover, this One power that is the only power is also infinite, eternal, unchangeable good. THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS! That is, we live and move and have our being in a virtual sea of infinite good. "Where can I flee from Thy presence?" This is the baptism that all will experience who gladly receive this word.
 
In addition, because God is One, and there is none else, there is only one conceiver/creator. "All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him, nothing has come into being that has come into being." Since infinite being is incapable of conceiving anything unlike its glorious self, and there is none else, God looked at all that He alone had made, and called it good and very good. This glorious truth is known by all; Jew and Gentile, male and female, bond and free, but has been suppressed in unrighteousness. Hence, the Apostle Paul declares that, "Even though they knew God, they did not honor (glorify) Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations and their foolish heart was darkened." What is this speculation that scripture repeatedly calls futility? It is, beyond shadow of a doubt, the insistence on the part of all mankind in believing in another power, presence and intelligence apart from the One God. Therefore, to this very day, every one of the major institutions of society, the family, the education system, the religious system and the government, have been established on a belief in two powers. All of us, from the cradle to the grave, from the womb to the tomb, have been persistently lied to about the nature of reality. I am utterly convinced that for the most part, all those who faithfully handed down this legacy of lies did so with the best of intentions. But alas, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
 
Therefore, all seekers for truth must accept the dictum: "To the law and to the testimonies. If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn (i.e., illumination)." (Is 8:20) Today, as Peter would say, "We have the prophetic word made more sure (the revelation of the seer) to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the (your) day dawns and the morning star rises in your heart." (2Pet 1:19)
 
I implore you, do not embrace any of the Heartsight message on the basis of faith. "In all your getting, get understanding." We have suffered from blind, unquestioning faith long enough. Only lies and fables are threatened by closer scrutiny. "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter." Did not the Lord say that we are in fact a kingdom of kings and priests? And, moreover, "The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever that we may observe all the words of this law." No wonder the psalmist said, "The secret (counsel; ultimate union) of the Lord is for those who fear Him (i.e., love the One with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength)." To this end, I would heartily and fearlessly encourage you to be like the Bereans (i.e., watered) who received the word with great eagerness, examining the scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. (Acts 17:10-12)
 
As Heartsight continues to be a lamp shining in a dark place, we will on many occasions bring illumination on many aspects of the day's culture and lifestyle that are rooted and grounded in duality. To this end, via Accelebrations, Seminars, publications, including specific position papers, we will share this with all those who have open hearts and minds. To the thirsty souls, these words will be as cool refreshing waters in a parched and weary land. If, however, you find these truths wearisome, burdensome, or just too much light too soon, please feel free with my blessings to lay this aside until a more convenient season. Rest assured that when the pupil is ready, the teacher will come. I have utterly no investment in whom the teacher may be, for the joy of bearing witness to the truth and the glory of the One, besides whom, there is none other, is my super abundant reward.
 
Love always,
 
Your brother and companion on the glorious journey of no distance, returning to the place we never left, becoming what we already are, acquiring what we never lost.
