Temporary Gain

The devil, satan and/or the shadow self tried to make a deal with Jesus one day. He said to Jesus, look we’re on this mountain right, well if you jump off it would be amazing because all these angels, I’m sure if you’re the son of God, if you really are the son of God, nothing will happen to you, you’ll be taken care of. And Jesus said very clearly it’s written that we will not use the power for temporary gain. We will not use it for that. What a great message, because it teaches us not to become spiritually dogmatic or arrogant.

And then finally, satan, the devil says you know, here’s the thing, if you’re so wonderful and you’re so fine and you’re God’s beloved and all that, here’s what you can have if you’ll just follow my ways – in other words if you’ll follow the ways of your personality you can have it all.

And Jesus says, that is not the way of true spiritual teaching. That is not the way to follow as a spiritual being. What I am here to do in spiritual law is to show that the Kingdom is within. Everything that I need, is inside of me. There is nothing ultimately that we own, anyway – is there?

Unique Souls

Unique Souls

God is the only presence and power in the universe. Each of us is an individualized expression of the One. Our souls, like our fingerprints are unique. We each follow our unique paths, and our souls recognize the way of these paths. Sayings like “that touched my soul,” are mirrors of who we are as…

A Place of Wholeness

A Place of Wholeness

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…

Drained to Impassioned

Would you say that you have felt somewhat disconnected and drained? Do you often feel like life is not giving you the joy, passion, and drive you felt when you were a child? Have you ever felt like you awoke from a dream that wouldn’t let you go even though you knew you had woken…
