Reflections on an emma-interview-1889 pdf

I spent 30 plus years as a Mormon. from 27 years of age to around 57 years of age. I have not attended or considered myself a Mormon for about four years now. That influence is huge on me though, and I like to research things if they come to my awareness. While looking up something else on Google this Emma Smith showed up. … Read More Reflections on an emma-interview-1889 pdf

Love That Comes in Times of Trauma

  One thing that I learned in my trek out west to see my birth mother is that I was the one who separated us. I would not give her an inch. At ten or so, I had to keep my sanity stable within myself because I knew that no one out there was going to take care of me. Four hundred Volkswagen Beetles … Read More Love That Comes in Times of Trauma

Thoughts on Lost City of Z

“I watched this 2017 movie twice and feel very reflective. The dedication that this man/couple/family had to a cause is incredible. The dedication they had as a family is really something to ponder. My understanding is that they had a burning desire to see that the native people were not destroyed by the understanding of the finding of a huge civilization before the “known … Read More Thoughts on Lost City of Z

I Want To Share What Brings Me Joy

I have found something that allows me to be in the world and not be of it. Simply stated it is Christ. Not the cross, the punishment, and the scales of justice that you might envision if you have listened to people who consider themselves Christians or watched Hollywood depictions. I am speaking of Christ, the whole body of humanity, and all that it … Read More I Want To Share What Brings Me Joy

So Sweet When Spirit Reveals Why You Are Where You Are Part Two

A ghost in an environment that flows around me. This is how I feel. I stand here as one identity and watch an incredible dance of life, destructive life, all around. It seeped into my consciousness a bit at a time. I had thought maybe it was only our family. Turns out that the same oddities that I observed in my home of origin … Read More So Sweet When Spirit Reveals Why You Are Where You Are Part Two

So Sweet When Spirit Reveals Why You Are Where You Are

Part One Like a shadow or a fly on the wall. That is how I feel in life so many times. It could make me feel left out or alone. Loneliness is something I did not feel when I was younger, it was more a sense of not being able to speak a similar language. Or hiding from the truth that I lived each day … Read More So Sweet When Spirit Reveals Why You Are Where You Are

Homelessness Sucks!

Being homeless sucks! just sayin….. Personally, I do not believe that homelessness is caused by economics, drugs, or such things though I agree that it would seem so on the surface and that you can point to those things in individual cases….. rather, I believe that homelessness is caused by the lack of human engagement…the inability for humanity to see one another, more importantly, … Read More Homelessness Sucks!

The Sting of Someone’s Comment…

It seems like, even today, at nearly 60 years old, when I feel good about a task or a choice I have made someone who is a person of trust, a friend or an authority figure, will come up and tell me that I messed up and it nearly cripples me inside. It seems as if the message is basically suggesting I have no … Read More The Sting of Someone’s Comment…

Where I Am and Some Of What Got Me Here …Part 2

I will continue with where I am in my studies at this time though it will NOT be all-inclusive of the many things that I consider and ponder. Where I live right now is like sitting on the back of a fire breathing dragon and with very little weaponry save a broken heart and a contrite spirit. I know that I have not only … Read More Where I Am and Some Of What Got Me Here …Part 2

I am Writing Again…

It has been a tough go this year with the death of my daughter and the new things that I am learning. I somehow sense that this is something that I must do to heal and continue in my evolution so I will write and seek to continue to understand what appears in my frame of awareness. I did get the series on makeup … Read More I am Writing Again…

Musings to Prime the Pump…

It is in forgiveness that the flood gates of love are released and here is where happiness is found. Let go of all attachments and all illusions and fall into the comfort and joy of forgiveness. Heavenly Father hold me in thy hands as you allow me to remember. Let me not be overcome by the fear of nothingness. Jesus shows us that he … Read More Musings to Prime the Pump…

Makeup or No Makeup That Is the Question… ;) Part 4 Conclusion 21 November 2014

God will give us what we want. Have you ever thought about what you really want? What is behind what you believe that you want? What will it give you once you have it? Sadly sometimes (ACIM says this is always what the ego wants, not sometimes) what we want is to be stripped down and beaten as if we have done something so … Read More Makeup or No Makeup That Is the Question… 😉 Part 4 Conclusion 21 November 2014
