This presentation explores the spiritual path of of divine love in several major religions—and key breakthroughs at the cutting edge of mathematical physics that illuminate this path. Highlighting the scriptures and leading mystics from across the religions—a glorious universal path of love emerges that is illuminated equally by modern science and ancient wisdom. Based on Keepin’s book Belonging to God, which combines decades of Eastern and Western contemplative practice with cutting-edge scientific research in an easy-to-comprehend and uplifting journey. Concludes with twelve principles of divine love that point toward a universal spiritual path of the heart, both within and beyond the religions.
