Shirley MacLaine was right: I AM God!

For some 25 years I have had a troubling struggle with Shirley MacLaine’s autobiographical book and movie Out on a Limb.

MacLaine was featured in the January 2012 edition of OMTimes, and that feature prompted me to consider this topic for an article.

Her book was published in 1983 and the movie was released in 1987.  The essential message of each is that New Age spirituality is valid, with its advocacy of higher truths such as…

Quintessence of Dust: The Mystical Meaning of Hamlet

             A Review of Kenneth Chan's book, by William Bezanson

Having wanted to read this book for nearly two years, I found that it had risen to the top of my pile and I finally got to it.  

I have been interested in Shakespeare's play Hamlet ever since I first studied it in high school.  I re-read it about once every ten years, along with various commentaries and interpretations.  But this time, knowing that the author was also a member of a Rosicrucian group…

Review of Mark Booth: The Secret History of the World

Have you ever wondered why “the ancients” knew so much that seemed impossible to know, such as the purpose of our bodily glands?  I have wondered, for many years.

In this modern age, with its rational, physical, “scientific” explanations of things, any presumption of advanced wisdom for ancient people is viewed with skepticism.  And yet, the evidence is growing, that such esoteric knowledge seems truly to have been prevalent among primitive peoples. 

I had never…

Point to Heaven — Not Up, but In!

A game I enjoy playing when I am having a serious talk with someone or a group of peo­ple is to ask them to point to Heaven.

The typical scenario is a discussion that touches on religious topics. Many of my discus­sions are that way. I enjoy learning about peoples’ views about God, Chris­tianity, church membership, other religions, and all sorts of related topics. I hate the small talk of weather,…

Reality and Actuality

Everything that is real is not necessarily actual.


What is real to me may not be real to you. And what is actual may be different still.


Reality is what we perceive. Actuality is what truly is.…

I Believe: A Critique of the Nicene Creed

A project that I have wanted to undertake for more than thirty years has been a systematic documentation of what I believe with respect to the theology of Christianity.  I finally made a significant start on that project recently, by writing a critique of the Nicene Creed, the central dogmatic statement of the Church, and identifying what I truly believe for each phrase of that creed.


I believe, first of all, that being a…

Want Better Users?

We all want better users of our products, services, documents, instructions, advice, coaching, criticisms, and the many other values that we add to other peoples' lives.

I use that expression "Want Better Users?" as a branding phrase for my website and a series of books that I am writing.  The phrase first occurred to me years ago when I was working in a telecommunications company.  A common expression there was along the lines of "Those stupid users!  If only they were better, they…

Spiritual Responsibility

Spiritual Responsibility


William Bezanson


Our biggest responsibility of all is a spiritual one.


     You are not a physical body with a soul dwelling it. You are a soul being dwelling temporarily with a physical body.


     This is a very important point. I cannot prove it for you; only you can prove it for yourself. But I can illustrate it.
