In his song Imagine, John Lennon invited us to collectively imagine a world without religion. This was because the world’s religions have placed a horrifically distorted mask on something he loved — the experience of exploring his consciousness.

For those of us who have had profound experiences of consciousness, which tend to be called ‘spiritual experiences,’, to “imagine no religion” isn’t about erasing organized religion. It is about imagining a new language with concepts and terminology not based in dogma, fear, or control.

This book is my answer to John. Spirituality, the exploration of consciousness, has been my life. While honoring that, this is my imagining of how the human psyche can view itself with NO RELIGION.
