The Secrets In Plain Sight!

Spiritual Calisthenics For People Who Are Willing To Think! Not your typical religious podcast, but with something for everyone whose mind is open...
This episode is one for everyone on any path that is spiritual, because it applies to everyone. Simply put, spirit happens. And so, I find something that all can use and many need. To say nothing of it being something that might have been taken from you, perhaps even deliberately. And so you kno...

When you were a little child, your imagination was free, and so was your mind! Do you remember an invisible friend, knowing about something that you had no way of knowing about, or seeing things in a way others did not? Many of us did, and others of us had those memories driven from us by parent...

Looking at the people who have become the news lately, I cannot help but wonder whom they really answer to, and why. Most people consider themselves accountable to some person, some deity, or some group - or a combination, depending on what their life is like. But what about those who don't seem...

It's that time of year when some people worry if they'll offend others with a seasonal greeting that might hint at a possible religious or ethnic affiliation, and others insist ion feeling offended if such a greeting is not their kind of greeting. And so many of the rest of us are just happy tha...

Some questions should not have to be asked! As an example, I have ridden on many busses and have never asked the bus driver if he or she were sober! Some issues should be presumed resolved by the time you're involved. The recent special election in Alabama is an example of questions being asked ...

There is a secret ingredient to prayer, and it can often make a major difference! It not only helps you to pray, it makes it flow better. And, it helps you to know what you need to do. Unlike the "secret ingredients" mentioned in advertising, which usually prove to be standard components which e...

I've spoken about prayer in the last few episodes, and that leaves us with one question. The problem is, the question is so obvious that some don't even see it as a question. Very simply: to whom should you address your prayers? And some other questions would follow. For instance, if what works ...

We've spent a fair amount of time discussing prayer in the last couple of episodes, and not flatteringly in the case of some who seem to mis-use or actually avoid real prayer. It's time to see how prayer can actually be made to work, and work effectively! To begin with, understand that praying f...

With every major tragedy on the news, especially storms and mass shootings, many politicians and others say that the victims have their "thoughts and prayers". I often wonder if their "thoughts and prayers" are a euphemism for doing nothing. But, people who want to do something can transform gen...

We call ourselves spiritual, and/or magickal, and/or religious. Yet even the best of us is getting too accustomed to the continuing wave of gun violence. Here in the Philadelphia area, part of the routine is to turn on the morning news to learn who got shot last night. And then, there are the ma...

Most of us understand manners and common courtesy in dealing with our fellow mortals in any number of situations, whether it's in an elementary school classroom, a corporate boardroom, or anywhere ale you can imagine. But what about dealing with The Divine, or The Departed? And what about deitie...

At Samhaintide, the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. Many consider Samhaintide to be the time beginning eight days before and ending eight days after Samhain. It does not mean that the veil is ever impenetrable, but this is when it is easiest for us to reach through to them, and for t...

A Facebook friend of mine has been posting some spectacular photos of sacred sites in the UK where she lives, and I notice that many of them have pre-Christian roots. Yes, they were sacred before they were Christian. What is more, the people in charge of those sites appear to recognize and respe...

Hate distracts, and sometimes throws us off-schedule. Yet again, someone accused me of hate, when the truth is that I only hate hate. And so, something about a special blessing dating back to our most ancient ancestors and available at your fingertips today will have to be next week. It is a pro...

Protests have been a part of our lives almost since the invention of the opinion. But to be effective, the nature of the protest must be expressed in a way that those seeing the protest will understand. The first protest which I personally instigated was intentionally subtle, but those who recog...

People talk about "church and state", but there are much more than churches involved. And, it is an issue that has been there since the first existence of organized religion within the borders of a secular state. But, it got more complicated. Complications began when people tried to follow the s...

The history of a people can be conspicuous either by its overabundance or its absence. We know only too well how history can be embellished, especially when there are significant characters such as Moses, Jesus, George Washington or Elvis. But then there are those which seem to "disappear," eith...

From time to time, I've heard of some person being described as "a real one". At the same time, we see people every day who claim to be one thing or another, or act as if they were. Whether you are talking about a security guard who acts as if they were a police officer, an "open carry" advocate...

For some, history is taught with tales and folklore, sometimes seeming so full of lore, superstition and even fairies that it loses credibility. For others, history is a series of lists of names, places and dates that offer no emotion or feeling. Both leave much to be desired. Whether or not Geo...

In high school, I recall being subjected to lectures on the subject of "secret societies", whatever they were. Apparently, they were deep, dark and deadly. But except for a couple of honoraries and a few church groups, we didn't know who they might be. And no, I get to see tabloids telling about...
