Good and Evil

Good and Evil

2021-01-1240:14

In the wake of a disturbing week (and year) (and four years) (and however long humans have been around), we are confronted with what feels to be such vivid displays of evil in the world. What is evil exactly? Is it real? Is it objective? What do we even mean when we talk about good and evil and how does it relate to who we are and how we live?
Grace

Grace

What is grace? Is it a magical power-up potion? A thought in the mind of God? A metaphor for fortunate moments in life? In this episode, Michael takes a deep dive into the idea of grace and offers his thoughts on why so many religious traditions have some sort of concept of it.

Are You Perfect Yet?

Nonduality

Nonduality

2019-07-0624:08

What is non-duality? It essentially means "not two." Most of us view reality as though we are in here behind this skin, and the world is out there outside of the skin, but the mystics and contemporary physics tell us that reality is not so simple.

Hi there. My name is... well it’s a little hard to tell you what my name is because I’ve been a lot of names for a lot of people. Some have called me Yahweh. Jehovah. The great I am. The I will be who I will be. I know it’s a bit unconventional for me to be talking to you like this...

Vishnu I am a listener to all the liturgist and associsted projects. Even the alien and the robot ;) I say that and chuckle but also its been a constant nudge then push then conflict in my heart about the way you sometimes seem to mock God. Ive been on a wild journey much like yours. A psychonaut? and seeker since I was young. Jesus is the only diety that has personally introduced Himself in my life and THEN allowed me to choose to serve Him. You are involved in that work, and you know you are and you personally really changed my walk. It was almost like your ideas were a sacrifice (and thats very significant and a long metaphysical story) within the sacrifice/Savior narraritive. When you see Him though you will have denied Him and said you dont ~~BEllIiIevE~~ per se His story. and you have said it and of course Im not taking sound bites to accuse you of anything.. just that as your sister and someone who loves you, I really want you to have that awkward conversation with God and say.. "do I believe Jesus is Lord? My confusion helps people I want to get to know you like I do.. but will I be able to say when they say "every knee will bow and every tounge will confess..." will i actually be able to say that if thats true that everyone does? THIS (lol) was long and weird but there is a message in there for you Michael. p.s hope you dont read this as a white man. this is a fake name and Im black and queer haha bye

I don't know what the hell Michael is talking about but orbiting, naked smooth bodies is the funniest thing I've heard all day.
