For over 2500 years, the secrets of human existence and purpose have been known, beginning with the teachings of Buddha, Lao Tsu, and Jesus, all the way to the present day teachers such as Paramahansa Yogananda, Jiddu Krishnamurti and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Throughout these 2500 years there have been other examples of spiritually enlightened people who have achieved a state of oneness with the ALL. Saint Teresa of Avila. Hildegard of Bingen. St. Francis Xavier. And many more.
It seems clear that the enlightened state is not reserved for these few, but is accessible to us all. Even though Jesus claimed this truth 2000 years ago, it is only in the last 100 years that the evolution of consciousness has created larger numbers of people who are feeling guided to embark on a deep spiritual search for that “peace that passes all understanding”.
All spiritual teachers — past and present — are at best stepping stones to that state of bliss that can only be achieved by each person alone on his or her spiritual quest. Yet even today there are billions of people who are stuck in the “worship” of the masters — the way-showers--rather than on the One. It's rather like eating the menu, thinking it's the meal.
These spiritual teachers and spiritual way-showers can play an important role for the larger number of people who are seeking answers today. Their teachings and their life examples can be studied, contemplated and even followed. One has but to be careful not to mistake the pointer for that which is being pointed at — the Source. Heart Space Teachings was founded by a married couple who have spent most of their adult lives researching and studying the many expressions of the spiritual life (called Metaphysics by many other who also study the nature of the life of the spirit), and they have reached a point where they have become adept aggregators of ancient and current spiritual teachers and teachings. Rev Marilyn and Kent Pelz believe there is value in studying a variety of beliefs. While they believe it is true that there is only one Truth, there are many ways to express and experience it. Each of us resonates differently with the thousands of spiritual sources that are available to us today. Heart Space Teachings offers its spiritual aggregation point of view as an effective way to support, expand and deepen your own spiritual practice.
