What is our reality?

What is our reality?

There is a wonderful quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet:
“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes
it so.” Many people label their experiences as good and
bad,and these labels define their realities. Oftentimes they
say,“This is just the way I am.This is my reality.” People
may get very comfortable with and accept what they have
been told, or state that what is is all there will ever be in
their lives.
Reality with a capital R is the absolute truth of God.
Reality with a small r is that which we have labeled our
truth.We are fortunate when the Reality of God and our
reality go hand in hand.We can always change our reality
if we are willing to draw from God’s greater truth.
In other words, there will always be “facts” of living in
the world, such as the real estate market or the economy,
yet there is also truth.This truth is the wisdom of Jesus, to
be in the world yet not of the world.

Sacred Texts

Sacred Texts

I’ve always resonated with these words of Carl Jung, stated in Memories, Dreams, and Reflections: “My life often seemed to me like a story that has no beginning and no end. I had the feeling that I was a historical fragment, an excerpt for which the preceding and succeeding text was missing. I could well imagine…

Finding My Shaman

Finding My Shaman

When I visited a friend and congregant who had tragically lost her husband and found her filled with energy, I was astonished. She explained that a shaman had done a ritual on her and invited the energies of her losses throughout the years to come back into her being. In that moment and that space,…
