posticon Sexuality and Religion

Posted on   by

Father James Martin is an American Jesuit priest. He’s a strong advocate for the LGBT community.

Lately, Father Martin has come under fire from conservative elements within his own Roman Catholic Church.

I graduated from a Jesuit college. The Jesuits are sometimes noted for their more liberal (humanitarian) approach to Christianity than other elements of the Roman church, including The Vatican.

Recently, Father Martin criticized his church in the new documentary, Building a Bridge, featured at the Tribeca Film Festival.Read more

posticon Contacting Your Spirit Guides

Posted on   by

A while ago, a reader asked us this question:

How can I contact my spirit guides, or know when they’re there?

That’s a good question, one which many folks have.

Spirit

Your spirit guides are always there. They are part of you, and can never leave you.

Spirit

Most humans vastly underestimate the power of their minds. Your lives could be so much more peaceful, joyful, and loving if you honored who you all truly are.

So just who are you?

Well, you’ve heard it said you were made in the image and likeness of God/Goddess. That is literally true. That, of course, means you have all the creative powers of divinity.Read more

posticon Sickness and Healing

Posted on   by

A Course in Miracles, in The Manual for Teachers, says this:

“The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing….Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient….What is the single requisite for this shift in perception?….the recognition that sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body.”

Those are pretty radical statements, don’t you think? But in them is the key to all healing, no matter the disease or disorder.Read more
