Narco Faith

By D. Sager, published on Feb 10, 2013

...at the prescription, in bold letters, FAITH, and in small script below it, “can cause mindless ambling to churches and Tourette's like expressions of religious clichés." Damn this Faith, it's a drug that allows me to feel good, putting icing on the cake of my rebellion, easing my conscience as I continue to act like the devils who I keep company with. I laugh as I sit in church, reporting weekly like I'm on paper and dutifully pissing for a spiritual U.A.. Someday I'll lay down my bottle and actually commit to a changed lifestyle, instead of a mimicked mockery of a spiritual man.

The Genesis One Code

By Yvonne Wu, published on Oct 22, 2012

In my new book "The Genesis One Code" I share my formula for converting "Creation Days" to years as we know them in calculating the age of the universe, the sun, and life on Earth. Without any modifications, the formula consistently produces results that match scientific estimates. To become an engineer I studied engineering physics, which had a large physics and cosmology component. I realized then that some answers were missing in science, and continued to search for them both in science and in Kabbalah, which I began studying 13 years ago. This led me to writing my first book The Genesis... (more)

Review of You are Everything Everything is You

By Allbooks Review , published on Mar 6, 2012

You are Everything Everything is You is a compilation of the works of several spiritual authors. Michele Doucette is an excellent researcher as is reflected in the complex content and unique perspectives covered in this book.

The works of Gregg Braden, Paul J. Steinhardt, physicist, Anthony Duchene, Michael Sky, Dr. Masaru Emoto and dozens of others are included in this work. Although convincing evidence, the text seems tedious and repetitious at times, however the message is the same throughout, “You are everything and everything is you!”

I do not think new explorers of spirituality... (more)

Thou shalt not - Yes you should!

By D. Sager, published on Mar 2, 2012

... is a circumstance in life that dictates you should.

Double standard? No, I see a higher standard. Wisdom is skillfully applied knowledge, knowing the rule is not good enough for practice of the same. Obviously we should not live on lies, killing people at whim. Here is wisdom, for every spiritual principle, “thou shalt not lie”, “ thou shalt not kill”, there lies a spiritual application. If you maintain your hardened religious attitude and refuse to consider that every application of knowledge requires wisdom, guilt and confusion will be your companions for life. I must take... (more)

Falling colors

By Betty B., published on Jan 18, 2012

Falling colors surround the ground falling colors all around the crisp wind blowing them like a dance that helps us see true romance

His hands shaping the leaves so divine their brightness clears the tears we cry we spread his joy from way up high.

Falling colors seem joyful in the sun as the squirrels leap and play to gather their food seems to be so much fun.

Falling colors light up the world they give us sight in this season of trial of how He will bring us all a brand new tommorow.

Look outside and see the sunshine help the fallen colors shape the ground keep... (more)

Crying Out

By Betty B., published on Dec 15, 2011

Crying Out

You are a light in the dark the shadows follow but Your love stands inside to keep me holding Your hand so wide.

You are a light in the dark it's scary out here in the deep wide world that's not my home, but Your love holds onto my heart deep inside we never depart.

Your a light in the dark when I feel so alone You take hold of the inner parts deep in my soul.

Oh Lord, how I long to be home, YOUR my true light in the dark.

What Are You Willing to Do to Get What You Really Want?

By Yvonne Wu, published on Aug 13, 2011

Has someone ever said or done something that made you feel bad? Well, unless you have pointy ears and your name is Spock, the answer is yes, you've had a negative emotional response to the words or actions of another. And if it was an intense reaction, you may have even felt like you'd been zapped with an emotional-chemical cocktail from the dark side, and before you even consciously realized it, you were giving someone a piece of your mind, or physically taking things into your own hands, or both—it was automatic.

Sure, there are plenty of reasons to get angry and do what needs done.... (more)

A Blessed Acknowledgement

By Barkha Dhar, published on Jul 29, 2010

My toddler boy’s ethereal psyche as my chariot of change each day pulls me inward to spiritual spunk. Listening to his innocent and enigmatic expressions often seems like divine recital. Such platonic relationship between a mother and her child is a route to bliss and benign emotions. My first born, whose plush gazes and fervent heart that has uniform feelings for birds, animals and all living beings, is my pioneer retreat to a conscious state. His playful and magical enchantments is realization that children as god’s cherubs are the hymns of nature. Their eternal kindle illuminates our life... (more)

Interview With Author Sheryl Keen, author of "Journal According to John".

By Novel Noise, published on Aug 25, 2009

I was lucky enough to get Sheryl to agree to an interview with me.  Here's what she had to say:

1.  What is the latest book or movie that made you cry?

The Secret Life of Bees.

2.  What fictional character is most like you?

Lily Briscoe in “To the Lighthouse.” I identify with her as an artist who looks at an empty canvas and think how I can make a work of art out of nothing.

3.  What is the greatest album ever?

Very hard question because I want to say Michael Jackson’s Thriller or Bob Marley’s Exodus.

4.  Ok, Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the... (more)
