I get it. The Catholic Church has taken numerous (albeit well-deserved) public relations hits over the past decades due to their handling (and cover-up) of pedophile priests. And despite the Vatican’s insistence that Catholicism is growing faster than the actual world population growth, there continue to be signs and reports that state just opposite. So, I get it – damage control needs to be done. Someone needs to stand up and convince its’ followers that all is well, and that the Catholic Church can be relied on to bring people into a relationship with God. It’s what any good politician or social leader would be saying to his constituents after sexual, or financial, misconduct were uncovered and brought to light. “It’s okay. Yeah, it makes us look bad . . . and maybe we should...

The moment has come to realize the power of You. The moment has come to drop labels, judgements, identities, and anything else that has covered up the real You. This moment has come as the present moment. Where every moment comes from and comes as. You shall no longer regard yourself as the victim, you are the master. To regard yourself as the victim will continue your never ending cycle of suffering that you have been stuck in for as long as you can remember, as a victim your suffering is somehow out of your control and you need someone or something to save you. It may be questioned that if you are such a master of your mind then why is it constantly bringing you down making each day a trudge to the finish, an arduous game that you always seem to lose? Because you are the master. You...

A letter to Bishop Peter Hancock Regarding his unsuitability as Safeguarding Representative for the Church of England while he has upheld and employed a criminal abuser Dear Peter Hancock, When I saw you using the Peter Ball case to preen yourself and masturbate your ego in public, I had no idea that you had taken over from Paul Butler in the public preening and misleading over safeguarding position, and when I found out, I was horrified, because there has been no justice in my case, and you have been part of the injustice, in employing the man who had me destroyed for his abuser friend. You employed Bob Key according to these articles below, and there was this disgusting show for a man who has committed very serious and criminal wrongs which destroyed a lone vulnerable adult...

You wanted to know the truth, here it is the truth. I have been in MK ULTRA for many years. I have plans to reveal all the truth years from now. But God put in my heart to do it now. So here it is. Many people have said they want to know. They want knowledge. If you want knowledge I will give you knowledge. More knowledge that you can take. I will give you knowledge here that will be useful for you and the family if you want to use it. The question is can you handle the truth and the consequences of it. Before I continue I want to say God, Jesus Christ put on my heart to put this message out. Many people say I’m layer deceiver and so on. I cannot control what other people think and do is not my business. If you don’t believe I’m talking the truth please go away. Don’t listen to this...

The bible tells us not to despise prophecy, but to have an open ear to what God may be saying. The bible says in Joel that in the last days God will pour his spirit on both his sons and daughters, old men will dream dreams, and young men will prophecy. I ask you to have an open ear to what I am saying, to not despise that which will seem ungainly. I am a Christian of many years, I serve the LORD continually in prayer, and reach out to the lost as I have opportunity, I also keep myself clean from sin, and serve the poor and needy out of my substance. I am not yet perfected, and sometimes stumble in cowardice when I should be bold. However I have reason to believe the LORD has revealed to me some things, and because he has revealed them I must share them. Watch and pray. We must be...

Where does your love start? The easiest answers most likely will include family, friends, and relatives. Many may go as far as to say they love their possessions such as cars, houses, money, sports figures, and countless other materials. The issue is many would be able to make a longer list of the things they hate as opposed to the things they love. Even if they were to give up such possessions to be left with only love for family, friends, and relatives, the list of things they hate would far supersede the other. So I ask a question much like the one from the beginning but with one critical change, where does your love stop? Does it stop for people who are different from you? Does it stop for people from different cultures? Does it stop for anyone who has ever done something hurtful to...

I am incomplete without you. You are incomplete without me. Reflect upon this. Truth is the puzzle created by the Source, the pieces that perfect it are you and I. If the puzzle is incomplete without one of us, then we are incomplete without each other. Judge another, you judge yourself. Hate another, you hate yourself. Love another, you love yourself. You cannot have both, Truth has no room for anything but perfect love. To want both will start a separation, you will become two. Consciousness the Truth and Unconsciousness the illusion. One is and has always been deep within. The other takes many forms, creates confusion and madness. It takes the path to the dead end of depression, deceit, and lies, it closes your mind, locks the door, and hides the key. The truth never...

Eyes open, for a split second you feel nothing except the now. You’re awake and all you know is that it’s a new day with endless possibilities. Such a beautiful morning, the sun shining through the windows like a touch of heaven shows you the depth of All That Is. The split second fades and in an instantaneous flash the sun runs away and you feel sick to your stomach. You’ve remembered the past you are stuck in, the endless thought patterns that have manifested the magnet of fear into a miserable existence. You’ve remembered people who have hurt you that you must get revenge on, you remember mistakes you’ve made that make you a bad person. You’ve remembered all the people who have told you about how much power you don’t have, how intelligent you’re not, and how weak love is. Hope is...

I’m really struggling with the ambiguity of life! I know everything’s temporary and therefore all things will pass; physical, environmental and those awful things we refer to as feelings… but when I’m in the think of it, that is, when I’m triggered emotionally then it’s very b****dy hard to be mindful and just sit with my emotions and tell myself “…and this too will pass”. Yes, I feel knee jerk anger to a perceived slight, yes I rush to judge and blame that person for my feelings being hurt, yes I add fuel to the fire by mulling and picking away at the slight, digging at my own clay heart, clawing and gauging great big ruts into my engorged heart, hurting it even more and ensuring those already deep ruts become trenches and eventually great gaping pits of pain and anguish enflamed and...

4 years ago, when I started my freshman year of college, I could not have been more excited to start a new life in my dad's hometown. Sure, I was a little nervous, but I couldn't wait to meet all new people and start studying marketing at a top 25 business school. It was the worst year of my life. Don't get me wrong, I made lifelong friends, made incredible memories, and learned so much about myself. But I had never been away from home before and I quickly discovered that I was one of many people who suffers from crippling anxiety for literally no reason at all. I had trouble making friends, woke up every morning with a feeling of hopelessness and dread at every day tasks like getting out of bed and eating breakfast at the dining hall. Getting out of bed was one of the hardest...
