A Fool at the Zero Point
Zero Point is an institute for the research and investigation of the esoteric mystical and spiritual teachings of humanity.  The aim is to examine the basis of such teachings by relating them to modern science, philosophy and psychology. Our hope is that this work will help to make the profound wisdom teachings more accessible to people, bringing them into the public forum, into science and into the educational system.  From a mystical perspective, the so-called "institutes of higher learning," particularly universities, almost completely neglect these most important areas of study.  In modern science and psychology, the deep insights and realizations of the mystics, saints and Sacred Messengers, are similarly ignored, despite their profound implications for every area of human knowledge.  Science lacks a spiritual and metaphysical perspective, and psychologists-for the most part-completely neglect the ancient idea of "psychology" as a "science of the soul."  However, the many enigmas faced within modern psychology and science point to fundamental misunderstandings in common knowledge, even in knowledge supposedly "scientific."  The nature of human consciousness remains the number one fundamental enigma in psychology, science and life.

    It is over thirty years ago, that Dr. Holmes began his studies of these traditions, while a graduate student in clinical psychology interested in the development of consciousness within psychotherapy.  The study of western views of consciousness led to the realization that the western science has failed to make any significant progress in resolving the most profound issues of consciousness.  In fact, modern thought is seriously misguided in their presumptions about this subject.  The central issue can be expressed in terms of the difference between the "head doctrine" of modern science, the belief that consciousness is produced by material, neurological processes centered in the mind, in the head; and the "heart doctrine" of the esoteric traditions, which identifies the deepest levels of Self and the origins of consciousness with the heart.  By "heart" is meant not only the physical heart, but the spiritual and divine heart element and Space which underlie it.  Dr. Holmes' work Within-Without from Zero Points explores not only the mysteries of consciousness and the heart, but further, the idea of the "point source" origins of Self.  A true understanding of these ideas can help to bring about a profound transformation within an individual, as his or her experienced center-of-gravity-of-being, can pass from the mind within the head, to the deeper levels of Self within the Heart.  This involves the dissolution of false mind into the lotus of the Heart.  This is so easy to express, but so difficult to comprehend in its deep implications.

    A second major emphasis in these studies and teachings concerns the general unconscious, sleepwalking state of humankind.  People live in a state of forgetfulness about their true nature and do not "remember themselves."  As a psychologist, Dr. Holmes draws from his mystical and spiritual studies, and has developed innovative group and individual approaches to psycho-spiritual change.  He currently offers program on "the awakening of consciousness and the heart in criminal offenders," as an alternative to the traditional cognitive-behavioural approaches to offender rehabilitation--which ignore the heart and soul, and the awakening of consciousness.  He also gives public lectures on the Zero Point Teachings and holds smaller groups within his home and the larger community.

    In his life's work, Christopher has shared, grown, discovered and explored with his dear friends and fellow adventurers, Anita J. Mitra, James A. Moffatt.and Karen T. Hale. Jim, Anita and I at one time founded the Institute for Mystical and Spiritual Science in Maple Ontario (1984), the Rainbow Center in downtown Toronto (1986), and the Zero Point Center in Kemptville (1998).  Karen currently helps further the aims of Zero Point, and explorations into these explorations within the Hearts and Self.   We are very grateful to the enlightened masters and mystics of the ages, who have served to promote the light and love within the Hearts of humankind, and we feel privileged to engage in this investigation of such revealed teachings about the higher dimensional origins of life, and human consciousness.

"Valuable Quotes"

"Hey, flower open." Carl Sagan
On the Problem of God's Contracting Universe

In this Process of Translation, we pass as if through a point in space, at the root center of the heart.  All awareness converges on that point in a kind of spiral or vortex.  And that point is so small it is without dimensions, or any conceptions, or any objects.  The independent self seems to dissolve in this narrow Passage. ... The Divine Translation is a matter of Transcendence of separate bodily, emotional, mental, astral, supermental, and egoic states of experience.  It is a Transition through the infinitesimal space of the Heart.
-Adi Da, 1978
“The zero-dimension or the point is a limit.  This means that we see something as a point, but we do not know what is concealed behind this point.  It may actually be a point, that is, a body having no dimensions and it may also be a whole world, but a world so far removed from us or so small that it appears to us a point. ... seven cosmoses related to one another in the ratio of zero to infinity. ” 
-G. I. Gurdjieff
As large as the universe outside, even so large is the universe within the lotus of the heart.  Within it are heaven and earth, the sun, the moon, the lightening, and all the stars.  What is in the macrocosm is in this microcosm.  All things that exist  ... are in the city of Brahman [God]. 
- Chandogya Upanishad -
“... you ... of interior knowledge ... say, then, from the heart that you are the perfect day and in you dwells the light that does not fail. ...  They are the ones who appear in truth since they exist in true and eternal life and  speak of the light which is perfect and filled with the seed of the Father, and which is in his heart,  and in the pleroma ... .”
-  Christ, Gospel of Truth
 "I am seated in everyone’s heart,
and from Me come remembrance,
knowledge and forgetfulness.”
- Bhagavad-Gita XV, 15
