Knowledge of Christ Gives Me Courage to go Forward

On the blog talk radio program, Scriptures for the Latter Days http://tobtr.com/s/4505593, we talked about freedom in two different contexts. One was the Israelites as they left Egypt, in Exodus 14:11-12. The Egyptians complained to Moses that they wanted to stay in Egypt and be servants. They did not want to be free.  Even after the many plagues and “passovers” that the Lord had … Read More Knowledge of Christ Gives Me Courage to go Forward

If You Choose To Fly (Be Free)

You just might end up an outsider for a while, maybe permanently. Is it worth it? YES! If it means life, then the answer is a resounding YES! The reality is, that it is possible to “fly” and live at a much higher level than the majority of mankind is currently willing to do and that if you go after those heights you may … Read More If You Choose To Fly (Be Free)

A Big Tangled Ball of Yarn

Sometimes freedom can seem like you found your way into gramma’s yarn basket after the cat has been playing with the yarn. It is just so tangled and jumbled and you know there is a beginning and an end but you do not know where that really is. Society has painted freedom as a clear cut, cookie cutter, metaphor that has no flaws and … Read More A Big Tangled Ball of Yarn

Reflections On Enough

I have to share this story that was posted on facebook. It is truly beautiful and I believe it holds a lot of what I believe that freedom entails: I WISH YOU ENOUGH Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the … Read More Reflections On Enough

Reality Versus Illusion

Along with the ability to say “I Believe” is the ability to desire to see ourselves as we truly are, not only as we hope to be or even “think” that we are. We might desire to be all knowing and wise, we might repeat negative statements about ourselves like “I am worthless” or “I am lazy” or the classic female mantra “I am … Read More Reality Versus Illusion

The Ability To Be Begins With An Ability To Believe

I believe that we need to return to a place that says “I believe”. That ability to speak a faith or a belief has been taken away from our society. It is unpopular or prejudiced to say “I believe”. What we do not realize is that “I believe” is not a puffed up or prejudiced place as it is labeled. Instead, it is a … Read More The Ability To Be Begins With An Ability To Believe

Thoughts on Social Media Pitfalls and Making Wise Choices

I am beginning to see facebook as a mass psychological warehouse that has the ability to guide our consciousness into the light as well as into the dark. With its ads and suggestions it can direct us and test us. We need to use wisdom and caution in its usage, I believe.Facebook and other social media has the ability to tell the “powers that … Read More Thoughts on Social Media Pitfalls and Making Wise Choices

The Master

Take a look at the world around us. Nature shows us so many things about the reality that we live in as humans. Today I thought of the diversity of life upon the earth from huge to ultra-microscopic. Even the number of species upon the planet is not yet known to man. I believe humans may be as diverse and singular as this and … Read More The Master

From a Non-Mormon: “The Founding Fathers of this Country said Essentially the Same Things…”

I like this article by a non-Mormon about some basic beliefs about freedom that Mormons teach. “I’m inspired by this Mormon theological idea: God intended for humans to be free to make our own choices and live with the consequences of those choices.  The Founding Fathers of this country said essentially the same thing in the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to … Read More From a Non-Mormon: “The Founding Fathers of this Country said Essentially the Same Things…”
