The Ultimate Tool You’ve Been Missing

Right now, it seems everyone is talking about meditation. And at this point, you probably know you should be doing it. You’ve heard the neuroscience behind it; you’ve read the articles about the countless benefits. Maybe you’ve even dabbled with free mindfulness apps or a drop-in studio.

Who Do We Need?

Who do we need, besides our Creator, Yahweh of course?  Since we live in a physical world we need people, need each other, but what team of people do we need, should we have around us to thrive and succeed, realize our full potential, to guide us there?  I have thought about my life, dreams that […]

True Learning, Bill of Rights, huh?

In the days of yore, there was a thing called learning, education and we had something called the Bill of Rights, not sure if anyone remembers the days of yore.  Education if one were to take it down to curriculum alone is to gain knowledge and such, but in days past those things were simply […]

Confusing Jesus and Woodstock, OY!

The modern church and it can be seen in a number of denominations, or in leaders within denominations, including Roman Catholic, this redefining of Jesus, of the New Testament, of the core message etc..  How did they manage to screw it up?  It went New Age, this notion of line in the sand right or […]

I could try and get into all of it in one shot, […]

Ladders, In Life and Spirit

Majestic isn’t it, the soaring bird, eagles wide spread, clear skies, beautiful picture.  Isn’t that what we all year for.  Genesis 28:10-22 would seem to tell us, yes.
