The Concept of God


At the centre of human self there is some form of union or encounter with a reality which is felt to be both beyond the individual self and yet somehow at the very root of one’s personal being… One may find within oneself a sustaining power which is beyond one’s individual consciousness and yet at the centre of one’s own being, and which contains inspirational and creative resources upon which the conscious self can draw. ~ Ward in Lampe, 1977

This passage appears in Keith Ward’s book, The Concept of God, and offers a two-fold concept of spirit; divine and human. If this appeals then you might find his lecture of 2009 in Perth, Western Australia of interest. It can be found here. He presents a fascinating look at consciousness, creation and physics.
