Free yourself from the cage of religion! Once you know how all the fabrications were invented, you are free indeed. Learning to own our shadows and transform all the smallness from the lies we’ve been told is the key to living beyond judgments, “sin” ideas, guilt and much more. You are Divine right here and right now. It is Original Divinity that holds truth for us, not the old theological idea of original ‘sin’. Where did this come from? See Conversations […]

Some wisdom from Rumi– The Armor of Selflessness– If you put on the armor of a warrior, yet are unable to defend yourself, you’ll die. Make your soul a shield, bear what God sends you, put down the sword. Whoever is headless saves his head; the selfless cannot be struck. Those weapons are your selfish strategy, the defense that woulds your own soul. Talk about a tough one to learn! Oh, well, maybe this time I have. The gifts that […]

Aramaic Jesus, Spirituality


Have you ever wondered why the Christian Church is more focused on “sin” and lists of negatives rather than what Jesus taught? Why do so many of them engage in condemnation, judgments of others, put-downs, holier-than-thou statements, and so much negativity? Where did they learn this? Who taught them how to be so hypocritical? Jesus has been left by the wayside along with his teachings about love for neighbors, enemies, and one’s self. Gone are his imperatives about “turning the […]

To All My Memories– You have lost the agony once held over me,                                                                                   No longer have you the power to tell me who I am.                                                                  And, the suffering you owned before is washed away.                                                                  All you used to grip my soul in fear has vanished with the torment of your visions.                         The paralyzing power you once used to make me small, Now sets […]

Have you ever been afraid of “hell?” As a child were you frightened or manipulated by an adult who used “hell” as a means of controlling you? Fundy preachers use “hell” to get people “saved” they say, but underneath it all, it is more about controlling people than anything else. Why the hell do some people want or need to believe in an eternal fiery torment that comes from their “God” who is anything but love? Well, now you can […]

Divine Within, Spirituality


How often do we habitually focus on what is “wrong” with us rather than what is good? How often do others focus on what they can criticize rather than praise? Today, how has your Divinity been shining through? That act of kindness, the moment you included someone else, that energy of support, the act of empathy for someone else, that word of encouragement, your action of creativity, or your cooperation with another? All of these and much, much more are […]

Running through a forest blindfolded will not get you very far down a wooded trail that winds through the trees, boulders, logs, and underbrush. Yet that is very much like someone who is trying to discover their personal spiritual path by depending upon any man-made religion. Being battered and bruised from running into trees you can’t see is like being blindsided by the theological barriers, rules, and belief structures of religious institutions. For many people, to follow the “path” that […]

Is your favorite subject “pain and suffering?” Probably not, yet we all experience this and many times don’t realize the powerful value of it. We must remember that pain comes from what happens to us, but suffering comes from dwelling on the pain. I think there are two main values in experiencing the trauma of pain/suffering. 1) We all know that we are living in a temporary world, yet why are we so attached to what is passing away? One […]

I’ve been away for a few days helping my son move from New Orleans to Washington, D.C. So, the question in my mind lately has been, “Why do we hold on to pain and suffering?” I did that for too many years mostly because I didn’t know how to move through it, heal it and transform it into loving others. Do we hold on to pain so we can keep making excuses for being angry about it? So we can […]

Who is the “missing person” in your life? Who is it that is causing you the most difficulty? Who is adding the most good to your life? With whom are you dancing when you are all alone? The truth is we are much more than we’ve ever been allowed to claim. But why do we wait for anyone else to approve or disapprove? Today is the day to claim all the beauty that we have yet to bring forth from […]
