… to wear a profession of the generic state religion on my ass? As a person of faith, I am happy to live in a country that at least pays some lip service to the freedom every citizen has to express their faith — or not. Here in Indiana we’re given a choice of automobile […]

I do not believe that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. I believe we were all born as innocent as Jesus, and have lived as good a life as we’re able, into whatever circumstances we emerged… and we are not sinners. We are spiritual beings having a human experience […]

During a “sabbatical from church,” Tame Bear finds there is still great anticipation and wonder at the baby’s birth. What is this loneliness, this longing we cannot find words to express?

For several years now I’ve been describing to people why I meditate, though this is the first time I’ve written about it here. Meditation is a rewarding practice; the more I do it, the more I appreciate it and want to continue in the practice. I can list a few of the obvious reasons: It’s […]

Here is a bit of philosophical thought play… If God is Love and God is Light then Is Light equivalent to Love? —— This is related to yesterday’s post entitled “We Are Made of Light“. If indeed we are made of light, then are we God?

Be.

Be. Be still. Be still and know. Be still and know that I am. Be still and know that I am God. In the stillness, in the moment-by-moment of HERE and NOW, in the only place and time that ever really exists, this instant of being that is always just as it is, without memory […]
