Religion or Spirituality
There is a natural tendency to asociate spirituality with religion, but they are very different. That I did not know before I researched and wrote "Spiritual Clarity.
Trust in God
Ecclesiasts 5:18 Then I realized that it is good and
proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find
satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the
sun during the few days of life God has given
him-for this is his lot. 19 Moreover, when God
gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables
him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy
in his work-this is a gift of God.
There is Power in Believing
I once read a story about a Catholic priest who was a godly person. He was so godly that when he died people believed that his bones had healing powers.
Insulting Spirit or Exposing the Me
While it isn't my intention to insult anyone (Alright, for the purposes of this article it IS my intention to insult any 'one', and I'll explain that later) I would like to offer a few suggestions for your reading enjoyment and/or disdain.For what it's worth, I have examined and explored the Worlds authentic Spiritual Traditions for well over a decade, and have provided hundreds of workshops on Spirituality to thousands of participants.
An Alternative to A Life of Healing
While I do hope to avoid arguing the merits or validity of seeing ourselves as primarily and essentially wounded and on a lifelong quest for wholeness via healing, I would like to offer another perspective on wholeness that may disagree with and/or upset some. This perspective is pointed at by the Mystical Traditions of the East and West, and one in which we begin with the understanding of our innate and eternal perfection.
Interesting? (but unnecessary)
At any given moment, there are 'things' occurring within the open space of awareness. Sometimes there are inner 'things' occurring; a fleeting thought, a welling up of an emotion, a physical sensation.
You Lookin At Me?
It's human nature to point a finger when we think someone
else is guilty of something but yet we don't stop to consider
that we too may be guilty of the very same thing we are
accusing others of. Why is it so easy to turn a blind eye and
overlook our own faults and yet so easy to see these faults
in someone else? For some reason, we take pleasure in
judging, condemning and criticizing others.
Why There Are Four Gospels
The first gospel written by Matthew,who is Levi, is the first archtype of Christ in you as the fulness of the Godhead.The second gospel by Mark is the second archtype of Christ.
There is Light at the End of the Tunnel - Just Get Out of Your Way !
There is light at the end of the tunnel, but some days it seems like it is miles away. You have done
everything you can think of to do, physically or mentally and don't even get me started on the list of emotions
that have been involved in the whole process of creating the dream that you have held within your mind's eye.
The Spirituality of Pigeons!
I was walking down the street the other day, walking around the pigeons and saying "good morning" to them when it dawned on me just how precious they are to the lives of city slickers.How many of us have a dislike for these feathered creatures? I often see children chasing pigeons round in circles until they fly away.
Are you Addicted to 'NO'? Locating the YES! of the Heart
It seems to me that our moment to moment relationship to Life can basically be reduced to a 'YES' or a 'NO'. Let me explain?This moment and everything in it, IS as it IS, ALREADY.
Counsel for Non Church Goers
Not going to church has the advantage of having free time on Sunday morning and not having to bother with getting out of bed and traveling to the meeting place of worship service. In America you have the right to attend or not attend.
The Slippery Halls of Perspective.
As we walk these halls of Life viewing the world and ourselves through our limited and often times limiting perspectives, who can really fathom the depth of another? Didn't we all at one time believe in Santa Clause? Didn't we all believe at one time, that when we closed our eyes we disappeared? Didn't we all used to believe we were the center of the world? Where did those perspectives go? Are we now sure that we have it 'really right', or are we still clutching at temporary viewpoints and transient opinions, unknowingly defending mirages? Who can really judge who sees clearly? Who can really say who is deluded? Who is really in touch with reality? Perspectives change and for the most part do not belong to us, but rather happen to us. All perspectives are partial, and because they are partial, they are incomplete (even this one).
Ultimate Truth:The Beginning
You decide! We are often asked to make decisions. Decision is described as, the passing of judgment on an issue under consideration, the act of reaching a conclusion or making up one's mind, a conclusion or judgment reached or pronounced, hence a verdict.
Humanity Needs Islam
The human nature means the soul and the body. A man without a spiritual life is no longer a man.

The Woodstock Effect: And Weve Got to Get Ourselves Back to the Garden
Woodstock, the watershed event for a generation, had a far greater impact on us than anyone could have guessed back in the late 1960s, when it was first conceived as a commercial venture by four entrepreneurs looking to promote a music studio they proposed to build. While the actual festival on a dairy farm in New York's Hudson Valley was not without controversy and many less-than-harmonious components, the storied Woodstock spirit of Oneness that shines through it all is emblematic of our age-old desire for a higher way of relating with one another; of a more loving existence-the existence of our origins-and our destiny.
