Write for Spirit of the Scripture

by Joshua Tilghman on October 20, 2013

Spiritual writingI plan on this blog being around for a while, and I’ve decided to formally open up Spirit of the Scripture to guest posting. Because this blog now gets around 350 blog visits a day on average (and sometimes as high as 500), I figure it’s a good time to offer others some writing opportunities. My time is limited because I have a full-time job, family, and other small projects. I often get asked to write on specific subjects, and while I eventually get to them, I know there are other people out there who already have esoteric knowledge on these subjects and might wish to share what they know publically. Naturally this opportunity helps me as well by providing more content to my readers in a timely manner, but ultimately, I do not wish the Spirit of the Scripture to be my blog. I want it to be your blog as well. Besides being be a repository for esoteric concepts and helping to put the Bible back to its proper place, this is a place to reveal our experiences in a way that can show how truth is lived.

I also realize that sometimes others can get the point across better than I do. We all have different learning styles. Different perspectives may touch someone in a way that I couldn’t. When I first started out on my esoteric journey, I read a lot of information that was hard to assimilate. I often found that I would read the same subject matter shared by a different author and something would just click. That’s why I believe it is important to open up this blog to other writers with spiritual knowledge.

If you would like to share your spiritual knowledge publically, feel free to check out the “Write for this blog” page in the Navigation menu that I recently added. I have provided all the guidelines and what I’m looking for there. I think you’ll find that the subject matter is pretty wide open. While this site focuses on esoteric knowledge contained in the Bible, I would like to start featuring articles that encompass other religious texts as well. At their core, all the major religions of the world share the same esoteric teachings. It’s only natural that the dissemination of these teachings over many centuries and across different cultures would seem to obscure this truth, especially when the esoteric meanings are replaced with a more exoteric interpretation (religion).

I know people who have a strong grasp of esoteric principles aren’t out there by the millions, so realistically I don’t expect to get many takers, but hopefully there will be a few. I can tell from reader comments that there are more than a few that follow this blog:)

Thanks for looking, and should you decide, thanks for contributing.

My next article will focus on karma and how it is revealed in the Bible.

This is Brilliant! As you mention that are so many readers that comment on SpiritoftheScripture that could, and do, have their own blogs on various subjects. I hope to one day have a solid enough grasp on spiritual topics to aide in your vision for this blog.

Live Blessed,

Hi Joshua,

This is a really great idea, Josh! I think it is such a good idea to be able to see different sides of the same picture so everything becomes clearer every time.

Personally I have been following spiritual programs, broadcasted by different religions, on television for quite some years and I have been looking for the essence of things all the time. Once you see it, it becomes very clear that the same essence is at the core of all of religions, just as there are fundamentalists in all of them.

I especially loved seeing a program broadcasted by a Muslim organisation which showed that a grooup of women was studying the Koran in exactly the same way as we are studying the Bible. With comparable results. So I would love to also see blogposts by Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindu’s and others who are showing their approach to the subjects we are studying. I do not know how many of them are checking out your blog.

Personally I often need a trigger to write anything and I often find it in one of your blogposts or one of the comments. Then suddenly I see things that I did not see before.

I would be honored to write a post on this blog sometime in the near or far future. I’ll have to take a mental inventory and let you know what is stirring me to expression.
