The Cast Iron Skillet

So lets say you are a cast iron skillet. Made by the best cast iron skillet maker in the world. Your first owner knows you should be "seasoned" before use but doesn't' have the time to do it right. You are left to soak in the sink in spite of the directions you came with and after repeated failures to adhere to the manufacturer's instructions you are no longer the pride and joy of your owner as you are coated with rust and no one would think of using you for your original purpose. Instead you…See More

The Three R's of Unity: Part III - Responsibility

Posted on 3rd mo. 20, 2017 at 3:11pm 1 Comment

Once we form a relationship with the other members of our Body and learn to respect them for their individual abilities and spiritual walk we have to take RESPONSIBILITY for being true to our own spiritual walk.  We have to be open to hearing from the Spirit and following the Light wheresoever it may lead us.  We have the responsibility of trusting our relationship with God enough to let go of our personal fears, desires, plans and any cultural or family ties that stand in the way of…

The Three R's of Unity: Part II - Respect

Posted on 3rd mo. 9, 2017 at 10:45pm 16 Comments

Many attempts at unity fail because they are based on tolerance instead of respect.  There are bound to be differences of opinion amongst a community of what that community is being called to do.  We can't expect someone to just accept our opinion and change theirs without divine intervention.  Furthermore it's not enough to just tolerate another's opinion.  Though we are often admonished to be tolerant of others who at not like us in one way or the other, it is my contention that tolerance…

Posted on 2nd mo. 25, 2017 at 9:33am 0 Comments

Back in the day if you learned the three R's of 'ritin, readin & 'rithmatic you had an education.  If you could read, write, add and subtract you could pretty much handle anything life would throw at you.  That was a much simpler time.  Now you might have to do that in more than one language.  Plus if you can't find your way around a computer don't expect to make much progress on the job.  Inventory?  Bookkeeping?  Sorry!  Adding and subtracting isn't going to do it.  My slide rule from…

The Ghosts around the edges

Posted on 1st mo. 29, 2017 at 5:38pm 0 Comments

A friend of mine recorded this song that goes on about ghosts around the edges of the moon.  He does a very nice job.  On the surface it doesn't make much sense but the music and his voice touches the soul.  He's a very deep Christian who likes to mingle where the people are: subways, central park, occupy wall street gatherings and small cafes.  What comes out is sometimes hard to decipher and this song is certainly that but as I listened to it and reflected upon it the thought came to me…

Hello James, I just want to let you know that your thoughts about my" rantings" and my lack of "integrity" came to my email but did not post on the website. I appreciate your thoughts on my response to Micah's post.

Hi James, Early this morning received email with a statement from statement from you reading:

"I think you have to define Presence as you understand it before others can evaluate it."

However, I do not see it on the post itself. I just wanted to let you know I am willing to respond to your statement.
