New Years 2021 – a Message of Love

Our reality is one of perception. It can be no other way. Our 5 senses, and their ability to perceive the world around us are astonishing, but they are limited, and those limitations are different in each one of us. The perception of a blind person is not the same as the perception of a […]

Musings on the Atonement, Part 2 – “By His Stripes we are Healed”

In part 1 of “Musings on the Atonement”, we discussed a series of contrasts: Fear vs. Love Good vs. Evil Oneness vs. Separation Death vs. Life Judgment vs. Empathy In part 2, I hope to explore the idea that the Atonement somehow enables the healing of this illusion of duality / separation / fruit of […]

Realizing Zion

Zion is all about relationships. Relationships are all about love… and faith. Faith is the antidote to fear, and there can be no fear in love, so if I would love, then I must have faith. Faith in what, you say? Faith in the real power of love. Power to create. Power in eternal life. […]

Chakras; Receiving God’s Unconditional Love or…”Let that River Flow”

God is love. Love is God. Whatever box or graven image we might create for God; whatever name or visualization we might have given Him in our sincere attempts to comprehend Him, God is bigger than that. He is more kind, more compassionate, more patient, more full, complete, perfect…than that. God’s love is unconditional. It […]

Love thy Neighbor as Thyself

…And the second is like unto it. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Matthew 22:39 We are immersed in a world of fear, doubt, inadequacy. I don’t know a single person who isn’t constantly questioning themselves. “Am I good enough? Am I worthy? Do I do enough? Am I as good as so and […]

Unconditional Love

I suppose everyone on this planet asks themselves, with varying degrees of intensity, commitment, and integrity, the question “what is love?” It occurs to me that it is presumptuous to even attempt to answer such a question. Any such attempt is doomed to being incomplete, if it’s not just spitting into the wind. Nevertheless, I […]

Conversations with God # 18 – A Warm Hug

I offer the following as a revelation. Nothing about it is binding in any way. It is offered, with pretense, by invitation only. As with much revelation, it represents an outpouring, a condensation within a brief time, of much teaching and learning and processing over days, months, years, perhaps even lifetimes. It is absolutely filtered […]

Choosing Joy

There is a thread of thought that is very common in western religion, even western culture. As a matter of fact, it is so deeply imbedded in our psyche that most of us don’t even realize the deleterious effect it has on our lives. This thought is basically that suffering is somehow “good”, even desirable, […]

Love and Hate

“Love just gets bigger when you give it away” – The song “Friends Forever” by Shiloh Rising “Shine on me. Shine on me. Love is life, and it binds us all together…” The song “Prayer” by Shiloh Rising Love is a funny thing. When you express love, through your desires, thoughts, and/or actions, it grows […]

Conversations with God #17 – The Strait and Narrow Way

The following conversation with God is representative of several such conversations; a distillation, if you will of much learning over many days, weeks, even years. Whether it is “real” or the product of my mind; whether it is audible, or in vision; multiple voices or one voice – none of that matters. The principles being […]
