You Deserve The Right To Spiritual Freedom

You Deserve The Right To Spiritual Freedom

Doesn’t matter to whom you pray or how you pray, you deserve to have your own spiritual practice. “Life without God is like a non-sharpened pencil. It has no point.” I have been a minister all my life in one capacity or another; a teacher and a life bringer to many. I have been a spiritual leader for more than 20 years and what I know for sure is through tragedy or death, there are always an outcry and a reaching out for God. I have learned in my own life to admire greatly the atheists because once you understand what they are saying, it is not that they are always against God – they are usually saying they are against the God they were taught to know. Atheists are more often than not very intelligent and successful people looking for a new definition of a God they can experience, rather than a God they felt forced to believe in. I like to say: “Let’s talk about the God you do not believe in.” Often I have discovered we have great ideas in common. We believe in a Creator who thinks enough of us to give us life and if we can embody this great Creator and understand the natural laws of nature, we can live life abundantly.

We are not designed to grow old; we are created to grow up and out as beings of light. Some would call this the lightness of being or taking yourself lightly. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, when the Creator said, “Let there be light,” the Creator was talking about you. Even Jesus…

Are You Awake?

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds. Their bark on the average is 31 inches thick. Their…
