We live in what some might call a very patriarchal culture. It seems that politics and governance are in the first place controlled by men and where things are not controlled by men, there seems to be a discrepancy with how much women are paid compared to men doing the same job. It is almost instilled into us that the outward parts of society are controlled and played out by men.Continue reading “Gender”
The human mind tends to break itself up into different parts, allowing us to only glimpse things through very small ideas or mental images. It does not quite give us the full picture of Divinity with us. It has been created from the dust (false opinions) and cannot represent who we really are or what we are. These false sparks often lead to judgement of others and allow us to be gods over a kingdom where we believe good and evil exist for our sole purpose to sit in judgement. Creating a world for ourselves far more devious and complex than the one before with each judgement reaching out like tentacles touching those around us.

Let us refer to God as Love.
If Love is infinite and exists outside of time then we can be assured that time itself is a human invention. Would it not then be pointless trying to convince Love by vocal prayer about an accident that happened yesterday and asking for healing today?Continue reading “Outside of Time”
The problem of using the word “God” is that it reminds us of the God we were taught about as children, this all powerful guy who decides if he likes our behaviour. Then heaven and hell follows. This type of God is what atheists reject and who can blame them?Continue reading “The Problem of words like “God””
