This site is not affiliated with any particular religious affiliation or belief system. It does not promote any particular doctrine. The aim and purpose of this area is to "inspire, nurture, and celebrate spiritual awareness ." There is a definite, yet at times, subtle, difference between religion and spirituality. Religion is a tool which is used to enhance a person's spiritual nature, whereas spirituality is inherent in all of us, regardless of formalized religious instruction.
God is the Universal Power-- Creator, Omnipotent, Omniscient, All There Is. We are God. God is the source of all. All creation comes from God. God is everything. God is in everything. God gave us free will to make our own choices and decisions, yet still God lives in us and through us. God experiences what we experience, yet His experience is by no means limited to our experience. God is vast: timeless and ageless. God has no gender, but both masculine and feminine energies combined. God is mother and father. God is spirit and energy. God is power. God is love and forgiveness; peace and joy.
Love is the most powerful force in the universe.
God does not punish nor does He judge. It is we who must judge ourselves. At the end our our lives, we review our life in detail. For every pain we have caused another, we feel their pain. We experience every negative thing we have ever caused another to experience. That is our judgment. That is our "purgatory." This finite, limited, imperfect world in which we live is the hard lesson which fosters soul growth. It is the lesson from which we learn.
Time is a facet of existence which only exists for us here on earth. There is no time in heaven, not in the sense that we experience it on earth. All time is happening at once. The past, present, and future are happening in one moment: now. For now is all there is.
These concepts and beliefs are not something that I just made up because it sounded like fun at the moment. These ideas are the summation of many people who have had contact in some form with the other side: psychics, mediums, clairvoyants; those who have had near-death experiences; psychiatrists who have collected data from patients who have undergone NDE's, hypnosis, and/or past life regression; people who have experienced paranormal phenomena unable to be explained within the confines of current scientific theory; and everyone else who has contributed data in support of these beliefs. I have read over a hundred books dealing with the subjects of the soul, reincarnation, heaven, God, relationships, purpose/meaning of life...and have come to these basic conclusions based not only on the concurring findings of these professionals, but moreso because when I read these words, I, myself, was struck with an overwhelming feeling of already knowing these truths. I would read certain passages and say "Yes, yes...that is what I have always felt was true." Doing research into the subject of the spirit has enabled me to confirm my own inherent beliefs and strengthen my faith. It has also given me the inspiration to share these beliefs with others, so they too may know the Universal Truth of God.
