A Conversation With My Soul

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jan 12, 2013

Be calm my heart

Do not hasten so

Be steadfast slowly

Embracing this new place ...

What are you searching for?

What is the hunger in your veins?

Why are you afraid ?

All you need is inside you...

You lack nothing to be

All you are destined to be...

No one can run from time

Echos serenely in my mind

Asking if my dreams can come... (more)

Thou shalt not - Yes you should!

By D. Sager, published on Mar 2, 2012

Thou shalt not. That's what I heard when I went to church. Being a young man and given to many troubles, I struggled with my love for God while bearing the guilt of “thou shalt not”. Looking at the exactness of the laws imposed on me by religion, I saw a certain, weakness, in their application.

Thou shalt not Lie. Really? I will lie till my tongue twists in my head to save you from harm. A man breaks into your house, your wife and kids hide, he asks you, “Where are they?”. OK religious man, you who impose on me your guilt ridden laws, speak up! Tell that man where your family is so he... (more)
