My Search for the Truth


I am a Falun Dafa practitioner.  Maybe you've heard about the persecution of Falun Dafa (or Falun Gong) practitioners in China.

Path to Healing


It is within us to explore and draw upon our inner resources to heal. Some wounds are embedded so deeply that no amount of professional expertise can cure, much less heal.

Sacred Space, Sacred Time


We all need space, we all need time to ourselves.In Exodus3:15- Word of God:When the Lord saw that Moses was coming closer, he called him from the middle of the bush and said: "Moses, Moses", he answered, "Yes, here I am"God said, " Do not come any closer.

Shamanism


Shamanism is an ancient form of mysticism. Although there are many localized variations, the basic tenet is that all things are sacred and alive.

The Final Chapter


     Several months ago, I read an article about a 22 year old, successful young lady who died a premature death in a plane crash. The more I read this article, the heavier my heart became because she died in the midst of her formative years.

Why Sit Here Until I Die?


The bible tells a story about four men who sat at the entrance of the city's gate dying with leprosy, an incurable disease which causes terribly visible swelling and sores on the skin, only then to eat inward to the bones. Because of this contagious and incurable disease, these lepers sat outside of the city because they were not permitted to live within the city.

Spirituality at Work Because You Cant Leave Home Without You


Several years ago after I presented a workshop entitled "Spirituality at Work: Because You Can't Leave Home Without You?" I got a phone call from someone who saw the program booklet. She was very interested in the topic and wanted to know how to "get it" at her company.

From Spiritual Cry Baby to Bold Seeker of Truth


Ever notice how people dread discussing the truth about life? Their fear usually comes out as, "I never talk about that" or "Some things we're not supposed to know." They quickly cut off any probing of who they are and why they're here.

Soulstretch: Raising the Bar on Nobility and Nicety


In the make-believe world, too, fiction and films are filled with flawed characters fighting their way to selfish goals. Pick up any book on how to write novels and short stories and you see the word "conflict" in bold.

Who Are Our Spirit Guides
The Spirit Guides are extensions of souls in a sense, and they are always connected with The Source of All That Is. They are our helpers in the spirit world. They come from all walks of life and many times are our departed friends and ancestors who have come to guide and assist us. Many times we have known each other through many incarnations and existences in the other world. It is always a matter of choice to become a guide: not all souls choose to be spirit guides.

Embracing the + in the LGBTIQ+ (Sermon on Acts 8: 26-40)
"Then an angel of the Lord said to Philip, 'Get up and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza' (This is a wilderness road)". (Acts 8:26) It gave me a bit of a chill this week when I looked at our reading from the book of Acts and saw it opening with a reference to the road from Jerusalem to Gaza. We are told explicitly there that it is a 'wilderness road' - a term which, when it appears in Scripture, generally suggests something more than it being just another...

A Naked Pastor's Honest Truth
I've had people say to me that they appreciate my vulnerability and that is nice. Some people think it's too much, even a sign of insecurity in me. That's fine too. But the honest truth is I'm nowhere near vulnerable enough yet. I'm nowhere near comfortable calling my sin for what it is. And, amazingly, due to God's astonishing favour, that's mine undeserved, that's okay too!

To Be in the World, But Not of the World
A gifted hypnotist can convince a person there eating sugar, but in reality, that person is nibbling on hay. So it is with the cosmic illusion of Maya. We are duped into believing that the unreal is real.

Crunch Time Of Your Spiritual Being
There are certain ways in life we all must go at some time to make it where we need to go, and this article is about that in a way. Sometimes it takes more personal force to get things done than others, like God themselves is not going to get us out of bed in the morning with direct force. We must take free will action on that to get out of bed in the morning, in fact and reality.

God Speaks to You, Don't You Know?

Jesus Did Not Come As an Angel - Jesus Came As a Man to Rescue Man From His Sin and Sins
Can you believe that God has the right word for you in your situation and circumstances? God the Father sent Jesus Christ into the world, at Bethlehem, through that young virgin called Mary. Jesus did not come as an angel, or an apparition, or a concept. Jesus came as a man to save and rescue mankind from his sins, and the consequences of sin. The life, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ has happened, and because Jesus is alive, He can be with us in our problems, pains, brokenness and despair. Jesus came that we may have life, real life, and have life in all its fullness and abundance.

No Matter What You Have Been Through, Or What You Are Presently Going Through, There Is An Answer
People go through times of strain and stress. A serious health problem can make you feel like something is attacking you, even making you almost lose hope in Jesus Christ. "Why is this happening to me?" A crushing disappointment can shake you, as though you were alone in a boat in the middle of a raging storm. Life may be harder than you ever expected it to be. God gives us resources to cope with pressures and difficulties - if we want His help. Jesus Christ comes to restore what has been lost, and repair what has been broken.

Our Thoughts Transcend Time and Space
Although my thoughts sometimes transcend time and are never heard from again, many have much better results than I. We all hear stories about how someone has had a feeling about another getting sick or in accident and knowing instantly there was an issue. Many times the individual will contact the person who is sick or injured and be surprised to discover their feelings were justified. The Aborigines of Australia, as well as many other native cultures believe in a sort of Voo Doo, where a person will stick in pin in a doll representing the person they desire to punish for some dastardly deed, and the person targeted, although sometimes thousands of miles away, will feet the pain and fall sick or injured as a result.

Do We Create Our Life?
Do we create our life? That is a question that has been pondered by mystics for centuries. We all have free will, it is a fact of nature and is not up for debate. Free Will isn't something that can only be applied to certain circumstances and not to others, if we chose the alternative, by choosing that, we would be exercising free will. If we are free to choose whether to have a hot fudge sundae or a milk shake, then we are free to determine all things that come about in our lives. Free Will is static and unchanging, it isn't something that is subject to our whims, it is a law of nature, one of the laws of Nature and Nature's God. If we would choose to believe we don't have free will in all things, we are still practicing free will in order to chose that option. We simply can't remove ourselves from the reality of free will.

Spiritual Health Within Mental Illness
More and more in my spiritual walk I've come across spiritual leviathans who battle daily a mental nemesis. These people, in many cases, have come to accept, as Paul did, they have a thorn in the side. That is a spiritual miracle, right there.

God Interactions From Random Distractions
I met Sylvia who is in her sixties on Roe Highway, Leeming, today. Stranded. With car but lost. 30 kilometres off course. An hour late for her appointment. Panic stricken, due to a family dispute, it took a minute or so to help her slow down enough to understand her predicament. I was on the way to Rockingham to visit my parents, with my son in the car. The Lord urged me to stop. In her state, I wondered if she were genuine or not. But she was just panicked and afraid, so very vulnerable close to trucks on this busy highway, in some ways utterly unaware of the hazards around her.

Praying in the Spirit of Abeyance
My godliest prayers are the ones I've waited on for years; I keep praying them in the spirit of abeyance - I continue to wait and hope and dream what life might be like when certain relationships are reconciled. These prayers are not for stuff nor goals nor other acquisitions, but they're prayers that hold the hope that separation and distance between friends and myself may diminish. God has had me pray these prayers, as I said, for years now. And the waiting continues.

What God Cannot Do Without Our Help
There are so many people I know, myself included, who already know plenty of life-changing truth, but do not apply it. If it wasn't for God I'd be frustrated enough by now to give up, especially as it pertains to myself - so often a hearer and not a doer of His Word.

Small Prayers That Loom Large for God
We undervalue prayer so much that during our season of losing our son, we so commonly heard, 'I'm so sorry, all I can do is pray.' We would say, 'that's the best thing you could do.'

The Cost of Discipleship Prayer
This prayer is devoted to Luke 14:28: Jesus said, likening the call to follow Him to that of building a tower. "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won't you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?"

For Through Pain We Heal Pain, in Jesus' Name
There are many realities that make us feel too much in this life. For every problem there is a solution, and where the problem causes pain we opt for a solution that propounds the pain, unless we enter the pain raw within the problem itself. If we take the courage to enter the pain and not run from it, then we enter Jesus there. His Presence is known when we go to the cross. But, we hate pain.

What Happens When We Die?
Many of us have often wondered what happens to us when we die? It is an age old question and one that is difficult to correctly answer because once we die, we theoretically can no longer communicate with those who we have left behind. There are individuals who have had a near death experience or an out of body experience who have relayed their perception of what they encountered. Many of them tell of similar encounters when they return to our plane of existence.

Two Gospel Purposes in Every One Life
The conviction of the Holy Spirit was indelible. It went like this: two opposing 'gospels', but that which complement one another. Let's say one is preached by Paul Washer or David Platt. The other is preached by Joel Osteen or Rob Bell.

If you have a desire to become involved in ministry then a coaching ministry might be a great opportunity for you. Starting your own coaching ministry can allow you to share your God-given gifts, make a difference in the lives of others, and leave a powerful legacy. Don't hide the purpose that God has placed in you, unleash it, and then release it into the world. Because somebody needs what you have to offer.

Thirty Pieces of Silver

No Fear of Missing Out, Just Pure Joy, When IN Christ
Gazing through a shopping mall at all the shoppers - individuals, families, elderly, children - and I can't help noticing something striking. These are people of all varieties. Some seem so happy. Others, I can tell, are not enjoying their present moment. Then I realise something through my smile; the kind of smile you wear in a philosophical moment, when God is revealing something profound: "We love because He first loved us." (1 John 4:19)

How To Protect Yourself From Negative Energy
It is important for those who are highly sensitive to have strong boundaries to protect themselves from psychic attack and other people's negative emotions. Psychic attack is a type of negative energy, which can be sent either consciously by black magicians or unconsciously by a friend, colleague or family member who may be jealous or angry. The effects can range from feeling tired and drained or feeling as though nothing is going right in your life to being attacked by spirits in your sleep.
