Published Sep 10, 2009In the off time from revamping his Smashing Pumpkins for another new album, front-man and only original Pumpkin Billy Corgan has apparently been dabbling in spiritual matters. The proof can be found at his new website, Everything From Here to There.
The site looks like it's going to be a regularly updated blog that welcomes user contributions, though they warn that "all submissions are subject to approval of the site administration team." No contact info is currently available on the site.
All it really contains so far is a manifesto-type welcome letter from Corgan, who shows his sincerity by signing off as "William Patrick Corgan," as well as a tribute to Walter Elias Disney.
Here's the full run-down of the site's beliefs:
Hello, many blessings to you for visiting Everything From Here to There.
The purpose of this website is to discuss openly and without fear concepts of Mind-Body-Soul integration. If you are drawn to the Hidden Truths, drawn to God as something beyond limitation, and drawn to Love as the greatest force in the Universe, then you have come to the right place at the right time. This is a place of Love.
In discussing Mind-Body-Soul integration within the context of holistic Truth, many topics will be explored here that may be new to you. Like any good tree that one would hope to grow, we must set our roots deep into the ground so that what is real will prosper in the Light of Love.
This site is non-denominational, we promote no religion, and if we speak of any belief or faith system it won't be at the expense of another. That is not to avoid the obvious. Most of the citizens of this planet put their faith in someone or something. This website respects every belief and every faith as an expression of God's greater Will.
This is not a place of judgment, nor a place of making proof. We begin with the idea that there is a God. We begin with the undying belief that there is a unifying intelligence that manifests itself in Every-thing. Even if you don't believe in God, exploring fully the idea of a God or Gods should pose no threat to you. The idea of a higher collective intelligence or consistent organizing principle should be worth contemplating no matter what you believe in (or don't believe in). For who is God if not Us?
Mind-Body-Soul integration is the primary focus of this site, and how it can best manifest in our daily life. We will strive to celebrate the brilliant Spirit in each individual and work collectively to glorify that which is Holy in each and every one of us. To honor and recognize that support for another is also support for ourselves. To kindle the flame in every heart humbly as gratitude for our opportunity here to make a subtle yet important difference. It is that simple.
The date of origination for Everything From Here to There is 9.9.09, a perfect date to mark this beginning of a wonderful opportunity. We swing the garden gate open, and ALL are welcome Here.
William Patrick Corgan
