Teaching Yourself Loving Helpfulness

Be like a Candle which burns itself to give light to others. ~ Jorvan Robinson

Do you know that being of service to others is highly touted by people like Jack Kornfeld, Mother Therese and the Dalai Llama?  Do you know why noble dignitaries find loving kindness so important? Are you aware that loving kindness is part of the theology of many of today’s religions?

Absolutely Compatible: Meditation and Traditional Religion

When I speak of meditation, and, more specifically invite people to join in a practice with which they are unfamiliar, the more traditional and fundamentalist people stiffen with fear.  Many of them have been taught that these techniques are “Asian” and  “anti-Christian,” techniques that unscrupulous New Age people use to lure them away from their religion.  Such misperception makes the rest of us shake our heads.  The reality is that for those raised in Western…

The Wheel of the Year, Celebrating Life and Nature, An Eight Part Series PART 2 YULE

December brings the winter solstice the longest night of the year and the shortest day, the turning of the Solar Wheel from waning to waxing. The word Yule comes from the Old Norse word Jul that means wheel. In Earth/Nature based religions this celebration is seen as the time of rebirth of the sun. It comes to the earth as the Son of the Goddess that brings renewed warmth and light to the Earth and her people. In other traditions the sun is seen a the Crone…

Reiki: An Excommunicatable Practice

Did you know that the practice of reiki was an excommunicatable practice? I recently read a book called 50 Things Every Christian Should Know About Reiki. It is a sincere attempt to explain reiki and prove why it is evil and satanic by a Catholic priest. I was surprised that the church had taken a stand on reiki - it never occured to me that it was a dangerous practice in the eyes of a loving Divine God. Of course, it isn't dangerous to God. But it is to the Church.

I think it is… Continue

The Holographic Principle: Proof That We Are All One.

If you take a holographic portrait of your mother (from head to foot) and produce the photo onto holographic film, then with a pair of scissors cut out just her face and then enlarge that portion to the photo’s original size, the result will not be an enlarged version of your mom’s face, but rather a restored portrait of the original whole-body version. In other words, in each tiny, little pixel of the picture will be stored all the information of the source imprint or whole picture in…

Why Bother With a Relationship If You Are on a Spiritual Path?

I have started to investigate and inquire into the lessons about rejection or abandonment in relationship that people I care about have experienced.  This continues to be one of my biggest lessons, and I really am not sure what to do with it anymore.  I have done the psychological approach to exploring it, with some success.  I have done the spiritual approach to it, with greater success.  But it continues to erupt in me, and it is triggered by things that make no sense. At this point, I…

Whispers of Life: A Story of Hope

As we all know in today’s society there is a great deal of violence, bullying, discrimination, and prejudices that occur regularly. It is unfortunate that for some it comes down to taking their lives. Suicide is a very touchy and somewhat controversial subject for some. Bullying and suicide is not to be taken lightly, especially on social media where a good amount of occurrences are taking place.
