Week 1

I want to be free

Last night I had a dream about slavery. There were slaves, bounty hunters trying to grab the slaves and return them to slavery, abolitionists trying to free the slaves and help them escape the bounty hunters. It was quite exciting. I woke up and meditated. St. Paul said we are slaves to sin. We might

Knowledge

On Sunday we studied more on the topic “Knowledge”. The memorable lines were; True knowledge is to know God is, then to experience God. If you experience God, someday you might have knowledge enough to be a guide to someone else. When it was time to build an experiment for this week, I wanted to

Ideas of the resurrection

Does each of us, more specifically; do I need to suffer, be crucified, die, get buried and then be resurrected? Didn’t someone already do that for us? As a Christian we are all told to pick up or cross. Some people would say we must emulate Jesus, we must suffer, we must die into ourselves,

Spiritual Experiment

We read “the soul body is…. too wonderful to describe….it must be experienced to be known.”  How wonderful that sounds!  The soul body is too wonderful to describe!  I want that….I want to know my soul body…..How do I do that?  We were given the answer: We read  “we become aware of or soul through

One true sentence 4/25/21

Ernest Hemingway said to start with one true sentence. Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” If he gave an answer it is unrecorded. When asked how to tell false prophets from true prophets Jesus answered, “You shall know them by their fruits.” And by fruits he meant you shall know them by what results

Mary vs Eve

As I lay in the arms of my wife this morning I thought how filled with joy and love I am. I wondered what Adam and Eve would have been thinking after they made love. They are in Paradise. God is fully present with them. They would be happy, fulfilled. How is it possible Eve

Morning insights

The other day i suggested if you have real faith in just about anything it would have a tendency to become real, for values of real; and then asked why have faith in God? The answer comes from another question I have been asking myself, “who am I?”. Somewhere in the quiet moments of meditation

Morning musings

Does it matter what you have faith in? Will anything you believe in firmly enough tend to become real? For example “not all boys have penises”. I guess it depends on what you mean by real. I would say obviously in some meanings of the word real this is never becomes real. But also obviously
