It has hard to move forward in spirit progress or experiential wisdom while our mind is voluntarily poisoned by bad habits of thinking and a negative reality perspective based on disappointment and blame and resentments and anxieties and guilt and fear and anger - each and all of which retard progr...

Hi again redryder I don't know if I've always "loved" God, but as far as I can remember I have always wanted Him, I have always desired to know Him. I don't mean that to sound self-righteous. I can only remember back to the age of 4 when I consciously asked Jesus into my heart... I don't k...

Sorry to be so gloomy..... No worries...we all can see the world and its problems. But keep reading. Eventualy, you will learn a lot about seeing the world in a new way. The meanings of lot of stuff will fall into place. And you might just get your optimism back! Bottom line: we are iiving on an ev...

Thanks! This has been most enlightening.
Every now and then on this sea of mortal existence we need regular course corrections, some minor, some major but all necessary. I appreciate the input!

I agree that public service is a high calling, and from reading about Government on a Neighboring Planet it is plainly seen the correct implementation of that, even though said planet also However, when the political system and the members of the political class are corrupted (as is the case here in...

Well...social and political activism and advocacy are important forms of service I think. Opposing fascism, racism, tyranny, greed, profiteering, and the repression of human rights by vicious minorities is a duty and a social and ethical expression of our morality and religious experience I believe...

We are the Architects of our reality, personally and collectively. To tolerate the imposition and evil of false liberty (unrighteous dominion) is to deny and delay true liberty and human destiny. 103:5.5 (1134.3) Human happiness is achieved only when the ego desire of the self and the altruistic ur...

Apparently, Jesus did teach us to "push back against evil"!!! That push back is to be an active response that mitigates and redirects such error as false liberty, license, and unrighteous dominion . He did also teach us to not take it personally or act out of personal insult or injury. And...

This poem by Edgar Guest sums it up pretty well I think. Sermons We See by Edgar Guest Next I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way. The eye's a better pupil and more willing than the ear, Fine counsel is confusing, but example's alw...

"It is the fruits of the Spirit that must be expressed, not sloganisms and doctrines or creeds or beliefs sanctimoniously imposed on others."
Exactly! Those tendencies are the very things I believe we need to avoid

Fortunately I have very little contact with Luciferian types, people who are obviously on "the other team" both in word and deed, Even though I am a working musician and have regular contact with the denizens of the night, Luciferian types are rare. Most people are laid back except in elec...

But is the author suggesting public exposure of Luciferian B.S.? Debate and dissension are perhaps inevitable in any social situation, but unkind and cutting remarks and snide criticisms are unloving behavior aren't they? Fortunately it has been a while since I have seen that here. I am a very small...

“within a few short years many of our statements regarding the physical sciences will stand in need of revision” (1109.3, 101:4.2). Hey! I was just watching one of Nigel Nunn's excellent videos where he reads the above quote. I often read new articles concerning the James Webb Telescope and it seems...
