If You Were in Heaven; What Would You Do?

We seem to think of heaven as a nice place with lots of clouds and angels. But I recently wondered, what if I actually was in heaven, what would I do there? I suppose hang around the pearly gates with St. Peter, chat it up some with Jesus and the Blessed Virgin, and sing some angelic music with Gabriel. Apparently, in the Muslim faith, if one dies a martyr, there will be lots of virgins to occupy the time. What else?

Would you watch TV. Play video games. Work 40 hours a week doing something you’d rather not do.

A New Perspective – Brookmont Vespers – May 31, 2009

I believe in peace. I believe we all can achieve peace of mind, and that the world can be at peace. I believe we can eradicate war, murder, rape, and hate. I don’t know how many people believe this, but if we don’t believe, how will we ever achieve it?

So, I think it’s time for a new perspective. It is time for all of us to see life on earth in a new way. If one voice can change another’s mind, then that one voice can change the world. Each of us can change the world.

I have concluded that there are only two states of mind: love and fear.

Jesus Myth Crackpot

It has been some time since I have posted a blog, and perhaps this is the first on the new Peace Evolutions site. What prompted this blog was last week, when I was called a "Jesus Myth Crackpot!"

Here's what happened. I saw a link to a video by Darrell Ray, who wrote the book, "The God Virus, How Religion Infects our Lives and Culture." I watched it, and then looked at some other Christian videos about Jesus, religion, etc. I posted a comment on one, saying, "Well, the ironic thing is that there really never was a historical figure named Jesus Christ.

Liberals Love; Conservatives Fear

I’d like to talk with you a little bit about love and fear, and about liberal and conservative principles. Many have recognized that there are only two basic aspects of life: love and fear. That is one of the core principles of A Course in Miracles, and of writers such as Jerry Jampolsky. In my book, Peace and Forgiveness (which is not a religious, but a metaphysical book), I state that there is only love and fear, and that all emotions are either love based or fear based. Peace, joy, gratitude, friendliness, acceptance, etc. are all loved based.

The Sun of God

Many Christians don’t really understand the history of their religion. They don’t know anything about the horrors of the centuries long inquisition, how the popes countenanced torture of non-Christians, or really any of the truth of the origins of Christianity. The truth is this; there were many christs before Jesus, with many of the same mythological features. They were pagan gods, like Zeus, Apollo, or Neptune.
