One of the challenges I have with in balancing A Course In Miracles with my knowledge of the standard works is the element of time. Time is a phenomenon that is given to man and prepared for man to work out his repentance and receive his inheritance from God through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. ACIM speaks of it being removed from all things because … Read More Time Seems to be a Source of My Confusion
(I wrote this post on May 11th and my energies were low so I waited a bit to be sure that this is what I wanted to say. I have concluded the reading of the entire Workbook in A Course In Miracles and am absorbing the teachings and will be commenting on that in the near future as well.) I will seek for the … Read More I want to make it very clear that I believe in The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Discernment…if you know about my work and testimony, you know that I speak a lot about discernment. I do not believe that mortals have very good communication skills or capabilities. I believe that one of the key responsibilities of the Holy Ghost is to help mortals learn how to communicate. He does this by example, meaning we could learn a lot about how to … Read More It will be day 20 of the Workbook…..talk about changing a life…Christ is the foundation I stand on.
A few days into the Workbook of A Course In Miracles and I am having the most interesting experiences. One is that I find several occasions come up in the day that seem to seek to wrestle me away from the concept that I am working on for the day. These are items not unfamiliar to me and ring profoundly of things that I … Read More A Few Days In…
I had to take time off my regular schedule to read A Course in Miracles. Let me explain how I view my entries in this blog. I tend to be very influenced by what I read when it resonates with me and it comes out in my writing and in my conversation and I do not want to have anything out there that I … Read More My Initial Review of A Course In Miracles…
I had to share this post I found on twitter. I thought it was full of very good content.

Freedom demands it and while it is not a journey that does not require courage, it is … Read More Sharing a Good Message on Tough Love
There are three things that keep us from seeking after eternal life. They “choke the word”, meaning the word of God, and we are not able to go after that which has eternal consequence. Mark 4:19 “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.” I believe … Read More Three Things That Keep Us Imprisoned Mark4:19
Freedom is what you feel when you are in line with the laws…all the laws, not man’s laws (I do not know if there is anyone who could be in line with all of those, there are so many and they are so bizarre and “warp-able”) but this is not so with the laws of God…and this is the law that I am referring … Read More Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ
I re-read a statement in a book on leadership that I read a couple months ago. “When someone joins an organization, that organization’s values eventually take precedence over the individuals values.” I believe that this is why people are so afraid of organized religion and it is not found in the gospel of Jesus Christ…it may be found in the culture of the church … Read More Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away
I just had to add this footnote and say that I do know that there are those who do kindnesses all around us. And I am grateful for that. I have many in the branch (congregation) that I attend at church currently. That does not keep me from seeing a universal illness that needs to be addressed and come down with an impact that … Read More There Are Kindnesses All Around
I am the learner/student/servant. I am the messenger. I seek the Holy Ghost and his direction along the way. You might say I consider the Holy Ghost The Master Communicator of the teachings of The Master, Jesus Christ. While I am a member in good standing of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (Mormons) I in no way speak for the … Read More Disclaimer
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)
