    The Story About Hummingbird Feet,

    or The Great Unknown Unknown I guess I'm spiritual. As a child, I rejected organized religion as nonsense. That hasn't changed. I thought we lived and then died. End of story. Didn't even ponder theology or try to explain our existence or make some sense out of the human...

    Spiritual Evolution

    Spiritual Vs Non-spiritual

    A spiritual person knows that we are all connected.  She is able to see the fullness of God in each and every person with whom she makes contact. This connection sense eliminates much conflict inside that  non-spiritual people experience. ...

    I firmly believe this to be true: “Really

    important meetings between souls occur long before the bodies see each other". This happens when we reach a limit, a stage when we need to die and be reborn emotionally. And if we have nothing to lose, or if we are full of enthusiasm for life, then the unknown reveals itself...

    Okay I always have others ask me

    if I believe in god. They ask that because I don't attend church anymore. Well, I do believe in god. I just don't feel like I have to attend church just to believe in him. Personally, my church is filled with hypocrites which is why I don't like going.

    There is no one who does not make mistakes.

    Mistakes are a way of life. We mistake what we see for the truth. We do not realize that there is always more to life than we can see and that the truth is not always visible to the naked eye. We mistake what we know for all there is. What we don't realize is, we don't always...

    Religion Limits Spiritual Growth

    Worship His Way

    We can claim to know and love God, but if we are not worshiping and praising Him every day, we are in the dark about who He really is. "Although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were...

    where I am now able to see clearly of what I truly believe and sense while living. Religion is not my thing, but I respect all mono and polytheistic beliefs. Everyone views "life" and the "world" differently and too me it's strongly based upon the presence of spirits.
