Something's Got to Give

Well, I've tried to do too many things, and as a result, posts on this blog have suffered over the last several months. Since that is the case, I'm going to stop posting for awhile and focus on marketing my book, building my website and continuing my seminary studies. I'll be back from time to time, but only when I'm caught up in everything else. Be blessed and be challenging. Sign in to see full entry.

All is Love

Another bit of verse came to me as I struggle with moving my family to Vermont... A red-faced cliff It's profile casting shadows on the desert flow. That is love. A fertilized egg Whose cells split; one to flesh and one to bone. That is love. A forgotten seedling Struggles through the topsoil, reaching for the sun. That is love. Two loving arms Support your soul, accepting your struggles as theirs. That is love. Rocks or cells, seeds or flesh. All share Life's water; all share Life's dust. All... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Turned My Back on Me

Thanks for indulging me as I begin to write some verse again. It’s hard for me to understand when humility asks for help, why I tend to turn away. Or why I avert my shamed eyes from compassion’s small sad face, a s he passes the alms tray. Or how I can pretend to be an important busy man, w ith meekness down on one knee. While the still small voice whispers to my dishonored shrinking soul t hat I’ve turned my back on me. Sign in to see full entry.

"God" Does Not Punish Nor Reward

Matthew 20: 1-16 gives us the parable of the workers in the field. Jesus tells the story of the landowner who hires workers in the field and pays them all the same, regardless of what time of the day they began to work for him. While many of us may think it is not fair that someone who starts working in a field first thing in the morning should get paid the same as one who works starts working after lunch, this parable tells us that the way of the Divine is different from our way. It is this... Sign in to see full entry.

Birth and Death are All in Our Minds

Sogyal Rinpoche, a Buddhist leader and a teacher of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, once said that, “... birth and death are both in the mind, and nowhere else.” I love this quote and I love the idea that it presents. Everything in this life is impermanent – an illusion. Our minds have conjured up the reality that we experience. And to help us deal with this reality, we assign symbols to things to help us communicate with each other. But in reality, there is no distinction between each thing. Each...

If A Cow Raises Its Head and Smells the Air, Someone Has Died Nearby

Those of you familiar with my blog will know that I published a book recently title "Thursdays With Death." Well, I've begun to work on the second book of the series and, in doing research for this book, I've come across some interesing information regarding death. The following are "Deadly Superstitions", some of which are still believed by some. Enjoy: A widow is supposed to wear a veil during mourning to hide from death and to prevent others from catching death from her. Since the widow was... Sign in to see full entry.

If All Possibilities are Realized, Can We Learn From Them in This Life?

If we assume that, as quantum mechanics suggests, all possibilities surrounding an event are realized (i.e. we make a choice to not move to another state for a new job, but in another reality we did move to another state for that job) then is it possible for us to access what is learned in each of the possible lives lived during this lifetime? And can doing this help speed up our journey toward reunion with the Divine? Can meditation, which allows one to access an altered state of reality, be a... Sign in to see full entry.

Does T.L.E Equal G.O.D?

I was reading an article on Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE), a condition that can cause those afflicted with it to have religious experiences – a feeling of oneness with the universe, sensing a divine presence, etc. Because it appeared to happen often with TLE patients, the concept even inspired a new field of medicine: neurotheology. Of course, many have jumped on this phenomena to show that there is no God. Since this phenomena can be recreated in the lab using virtually any type of person... Sign in to see full entry.

Ojibwa Prayer

One of my favorite prayers: Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds And whose breath gives life to everyone, Hear me. I come to you as one of your many children; I am weak. I am small. I need your wisdom and your strength. Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunsets. Make my hands respect the things you have made, and make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice. Make me wise, so that I may understand what you have taught my people and The lessons you...

St. Paul, St. Joan and Me?

The voice who called out my name recently (and in the past) is mostly unrecognizable to me. However, the act of hearing “spirit” (known as clairaudience or “clear hearing”) is completely recognizable. This ability, if this is truly what is happening to me, is a well-known phenomenon within the Christian community. St. Paul writes of it happening on the road to Damascus. And of course, St. Joan of Arc was a well known clairaudient. The concept of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience and... Sign in to see full entry.
