The blueprint of the Life Divine has been installed in every child of God -- in our "Divine genetics." From this blueprint, our highest hopes and dreams irrepressibly arise. Our sense of rightness, our reverence for beauty, our intuition of truth come from it, too. Because of this blueprint, although spiritual paths are many, spiritual principles are universal. Not dogmatic "certainty," but the living presence of these Spiritual Essentials, endows any path with whatever true authority and effectiveness it has.

The LLF is dedicated to identifying and teaching the universally true and intuitively verifiable Spiritual Essentials. We hope to clarify and reinforce mankind's deepest and truest understanding of these kernels of authentic spirituality wherever they are expressed, but most of all, in people's hearts.

Spiritual life and spiritual living

Spiritual life encompasses everything we do, and how we do it. No activity or circumstance is the inherently "spiritual," and none stands in the way of spirituality. Every experience can be harnessed to spiritual progress and service. True spiritual progress builds the ability to live appropriately and be happy, bright, and fulfilled under a larger and larger range of conditions.

Spirituality is about orientation. For a truly spiritual life, all we need is: constructive and responsible orientation toward our obligations; good will and loving intentions toward our fellows; and faith in God; and faith in ourselves.

The spiritual law of cause and effect

Every day, we create the events and circumstances of our lives. We do that through the power of our interpretations, beliefs, orientations, and motivations. If we're unaware of what we're DOING on those levels of causation (especially on the levels of belief and interpretation), we're often bewildered by what happens. In that case, the explanation truly is, "I don't know my own strength."

Get a clue, and get a grip! You CAN gain unshakeable faith in yourself and in Universe process, and create reliably positive effects in life, by understanding and mastering the spiritual mechanisms of cause and effect.

Enlightenment

Enlightenment is freedom from limiting self-concepts. Consider the Zen saying, "First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is." It's a fine metaphor for the evolving soul's relationship to the self. The unenlightened person buys his self concept completely. The evolving soul does self-transcending spiritual practice in which the self concept is effectively renounced. Finally, in enlightenment, the self concept returns, but without limiting force. It no longer obstructs the enlightened one's connection with all that is. With free attention and pure intention, the liberated soul becomes a clear channel for God's love.
