n all new relationships with romantic potential (and you all know exactly which ones those are) a single question looms large: When do we become sexual?
In order to answer that question we must ask a larger one: What IS sexuality, anyway?
If we do not understand what sexuality is, we will not understand when to express ourselves in a sexual way. So here is the truth about sexuality that nobody ever told you: You are always expressing yourself in a sexual way. There is no way not to be expressing yourself in a sexual way. LIFE is a sexual experience. Life IS sex.
Conversations with God tells us that "sex" is the word we use to describe the experience of Synergistic Energy eXchange. The only thing is, we have it in our minds that this kind of energy exchange is limited to contact with certain body parts, when in fact it describes our contact with everything.
I am re-reading a fabulous book right now by Jim Rosemergy with the wonderful title, Even Mystics Have Bills to Pay . Rosemergy is an ordained Unity minister and has held executive posts at the Unity School of Christianity at Unity Village, Missouri.
In this volume -- which I highly recommend for everyone -- Jim puts everything having to do with the subject of wealth into a wonderful perspective that could reorganize your thinking about the whole topic.
First, he redefines wealth. And while he does it in somewhat predictable ways (we all know that "wealth" is not the accumulation of cash), his verbal approach here is light, easy, and refreshing. True wealth, he says, is "an awareness of Spirit."
A lady in the spiritual renewal retreat that I facilitated in Ausburg, Germany in September of ‘08 asked me a question that will live on in my memory forever-because it so perfectly epitomizes the human condition.
When a person gets into a deep depression, it can be difficult to “come out of it,” there’s no question about that. And no amount of “knowingness” surrounding the so-called “truths of life” makes it any easier. There are times when many of us pay lip service to what we think we “know” about a thing—to the spiritual principles of which we think we are aware—all the while continuing to act as if we know nothing. There are two ways I know of to quickly break out of sadness.
There is so much going on around us in our world right now — all the violence, death, and destruction that we are hearing about every day — the release of the Mueller report here in the USA, and the main thing I want to get across is that, appearances sometimes to the contrary, everything is going to be all right.
"How is that a God of mercy can be such an isolationist and so intolerant to other views? How can a God of infinite mercy condemn anyone for anything? Why condemn magic that heals? Why condemn for eternity those transgressions that are momentary?"
It's interesting to be me. I've just decided that. It's just plain interesting to be me. You know why? I wake up many mornings with the weirdest things in my head. This morning, for instance, at 4:20 in the morning I could not sleep another wink. My mind was racing, filled to overflowing with thoughts. They were thoughts about life and the nature of Ultimate Reality. At last, I couldn't stand it anymore. I had to open my laptop and start getting them out. I had to.
