I Blame Religion

I Blame Religion This post was originally written in August 2012 on my other blog.  I am moving the post here while I clean up or close the other site. I listened to a great talk by Rabbi Rami Shapiro this morning at the Greater Nashville Unitarian Universalist Church.  His theme was all things are possible with God, which is not always a good thing.  His points made me think about events in my life, especially related to members of my family.  Rabbi Rami might not approve of me adding my personal thoughts to his sermon, but hopefully he would […]

Ascended Masters

Ascended Masters I have often said that Jesus was one of the great Ascended Masters, a prophet much like Buddha, Muhammad, Abraham, and others.  Beyond that, I’m not sure.  I guess you could call me an agnostic when it comes to Jesus.  I believe he existed, that he was one with God, and had many things to teach us.  I doubt the stories of the virgin birth and being raised from the dead.  These are not original stories, and do they even matter?  As long as we listen and learn from his teachings do we need to believe the rest?

Reflexology – What to Expect

​Reflexology Session – What to Expect Many people ask me to explain Reflexology, and what they can expect from a session.  First and foremost, Reflexology is an holistic healing modality.  Holistic healing means the whole person is healed — body, mind and spirit.

Living in Love

I deleted some people from my friends list on Facebook recently.  It wasn’t for any single post they made, but a combination of things.  At first I was hesitant to delete them.  Why is that?  Surely I don’t still play the numbers game I did when Facebook first became popular.  But I decided I would rather have just a handful of good people on my friends list, than 300 that I can’t relate to. I don’t bash people for their posts.  Everyone has a right to their opinion, and I try to respect that.  But these people went too far […]

Philosophy of a Washing Machine

Our trusted old washing machine died a few weeks ago.  You know the type, white top-loader that you could hear all over the house when it was spinning.  It agitated the hell out of your clothes, and they came out tangled and wrinkled, but they were clean and the process was simple. When we visited the local home improvement store to look for a new one, and I was surprised at the latest enhancements in washing clothes, and OMG the prices.  I think most washers were more than we paid for our set.  I wasn’t interested in a new front […]
