Anonymous asked: What are your spiritual beliefs?

The name NEW AGE conservative wasn’t a clue?

Or did you want something more specific?  Because if you wanted the whole list of beliefs I’ve filled up chapters worth of descriptions in books and blogs already on that topic…you’re going to have to be a bit more specific.

residentmadman asked: Alcohol is a sin. God will make your weenie fall off. That is what the pastor said.

I’m sure you’re being sarcastic…but there does exist the possibility that you’re really that dumb.

Now while some religions do consider it a sin (silly but okay) the fact that you list a pastor suggests a Christian religion, in which case I’m not familiar with any piece of scripture that says alcohol is a sin…certainly it speaks ill of excess in alcohol as it speaks ill of excess in all things…but any religious figure that actually takes the position that in Christianity alcohol is a sin, that person is ignorant beyond the telling of it.

As I interpret the Course, ‘our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
