The human race had their beginning, and I had mine - in this lifetime, anyway.
Growing up in a cultural melting pot like Chicago set a great foundation for my different drummer to build on. I grew up in a town with six million people; every one of them was different from the next.
It became obvious to me, early on, that thinking, feeling human beings are as different as snowflakes. No two snowflakes are alike. No two people are alike, either. Not even identical twins, or soul mates.
We're all very similar, in spite of obvious differences. The human race has plenty of sub-races to choose from, in every shape and color imaginable.
Our shape and color has a lot to do with being different, even from other people who are the same shape and color as we are. What shape and color we are affects us all in different ways; the different ways we think and feel about our shape and color is one of the things that makes everybody different.
There are plenty of cultures to choose from on this planet, too. I get the feeling that if you're an ostrich, you're an ostrich, and it doesn't really make much difference if you're an ostrich in New Zealand or an ostrich in New York. You're still an ostrich, and you still spend your day doing what an ostrich naturally does.
Human beings aren't like ostriches. Granted, they all eat, and drink, and think, but how they spend the rest of their minutes depends, pretty much, on the culture they grew up in. Every culture thinks and feels about life differently, so they live different lifestyles. The thoughts and feelings we inherited from the culture we grew up in are another one of the things that makes everybody different.
The big differences between human beings aren't on the outside, and are invisible to the naked eye. The big differences in human beings are inside. Every human being thinks their own thoughts, and feels their own feelings. That's what makes every human being unique.
Being unique is obviously what being a thinking, feeling human being is all about. Why else would everything - EVERYTHING - in our lives set us apart from each other? We could be like antelope, and run in herds, but we aren't. Did we - before modern technology gave us more options in ways to survive than we had when we were living in harmony with nature?
Were we ever all the same? Probably - if you believe in the Garden of Eden concept. We were all created equal, on the same consciousness level as God. We were One with God; we didn't really think, and we didn't really feel. We just WERE, and what we were was blissful.
When we decided that we wanted to be physical beings with a spiritual aspect instead of spiritual beings in physical form, we literally changed the world.

Understanding a Tarot Card Reading
Getting the most from a Tarot card reading relies on the reader's ability to perceive not only the symbolic meaning from the spread, but also the mystical significance. Although every card of both the Major and the Minor Arcana possesses its own individual symbolism within the representative images on the cards, it is the deeper, spiritual enlightenment of the cards that leads to a greater understanding.
Understanding the Gospel of Matthew and Why it Matters - Part 6
Matthew 2:16-18Herod Kills the Children16 Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men.17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah:18 "A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.
Anger in Your Energy Field
Many consider anger a normal human emotion and continue to allow themselves to be seduced by it. I suppose another way of saying that, although it's not my preference, is that many are "addicted" to anger and "think" that it is of some use in their lives.
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.
Praying in Secret
"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." --Matthew 6:6There was a time when I thought I could not turn to God.
AD33Today: A Search in Modern America
We, a group of ordinary people who believe in Jesus Christ, choose to leave behind our modern American lifestyles for one year to seek God's face, presence and love with all our hearts; as one body, praying to be bound together in love and to be led by the Holy Spirit. We will battle the elements of the southern Rocky Mountains as we attempt to simulate the lifestyle of the first century disciples as they were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria because of intense persecution.
Are you looking for a way to improve your accuracy as a psychic? Maybe you're just thinking it would be kind of cool if you could 'know' things before they happen. Call on the spirits to help you.
There is no incident in the life of Moses which I consider more epochal than this one; the encounter with the Red Sea. Here was a man who was faced with a great dilemma.
Drop the Negations
What really binds us to any negative emotional state in which we find ourselves suffering is this: choice.Freedom from negative behavior and thoughts must begin with your recognition that you are voluntarily serving that which puts your own emotional and spiritual peace at risk.
I can truly say to this day of August, 2005, that if you call on Jesus, he will surely save your life. I'm thinking of a time when I know it for a fact that it was the Grace of God that saved me.
Actualizing Personal Truth
Self-actualization comes down to three basic premises: this is who I am, this is what I believe and the foundation on which my life is built, and this is the way I manifest that belief system on a daily basis.If you say that you live by the Golden Rule, but treat other people with a lack of respect, then you are dishonest, and others will perceive you as hypocritical.
The possibility of almost 400 Old Testament prophesies coming to fulfillment in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, apart from God's sovereign control of history, staggers the imagination. The certainty that God planned the coming of His son into the world can offer stabilizing support to our faith in our Lord.
Believe-Dont Doubt; Give Thanks-and Receive!
Does this ever happen to you? You ask God for something but you don't believe that you will receive an answer to your prayer.As an example, let's say you want your child to be accepted into a certain school.

Accessing Your Spiritual Guidance
For the last 35 years, I have been working with individuals, couples and families, as well as business relationships. I have 8 published books on relationships and healing, some of them best-sellers.
Most of us think of what a wonderful world this would be if only this or that. Well the Bible says that to follow the words of Jesus Christ and walk in his ways.
Some may ask, is there any truth to have a healthy life. I say yes it is.
A Servants Heart
Do you have a servant's heart? Has God blessed you with the insight to see the needs of others and reach out in compassion and understanding even when they, themselves, cannot reach out and ask for help?This month I had the rare opportunity to not only reach out and touch a few lives, but to be blessed in return. I say rare because in my own experience, it's either been one or the other-not both at the same time.
Angels on Assignment
Recently it has come to my attention people are noticing Angels popping up in the strangest places. Several years ago you would only hear about Angels at Christmas time 'Peace on Earth' that kind of thing.
