I am discovering that knowing and believing are two separate things. Knowing comes from within. It's the truth residing in your own flesh and bones. Believing is an act of your conscious mind. It is a mental choice, influenced by endless external factors. When your knowing and believing are not in alignment, you will experience … Continue reading The Difference Between Knowing and Believing
There are many reasons to be happy and many reasons to be unhappy. I'm still hormonal crazy lady half the time, easily triggered and still sensitive as fuck. But when I'm good these days... I'm REALLY good. The shifting was intense, and the rewards are immense. I promised to myself that if I ever got … Continue reading When Divine Meets Human

Many of us worship our Bibles more than we worship God. We worship our ideas about God that we've formulated through our interpretations of the Bible. The … Continue reading Do You Worship God Or Your Beliefs About God?
Your belief in Jesus does not save you. Jesus saves you. Not your belief. Salvation is not a product of your mind. Your ability to believe or not believe (or struggle to believe) in the power or person of Jesus has no bearing on your salvation. I can refuse to believe in the sun. But … Continue reading Beloved Children of God

If your takeaway from non-dualism is that your feelings, desires, and experiences are irrelevant or even a hindrance to enlightenment or a fulfilling life, then you don't understand non-dualism.
