- Rejoice, Be Patient, and Pray
We are forever grateful to our God because He is always good to us. Allow me to share with you on the importance of rejoicing, being patient, and praying. These are the things that sustain us in our walk in life. Doing the three things is a Biblical prescription for dealing with issues that affect our lives. It is obeying the Word of the Lord. This article is based on the following portion of scripture written by the Apostle Paul.
- Pray - How to Start?
If you are new to this spiritual practice, then doubts about who to pray to and what to say will likely arise. You will probably notice quiet thoughts that come into your head. These can offer stillness, clarity, and hope. But first one needs to learn to listen rather than get confirmation of what one thinks anyway.

- It's Not About Now, It's Never Been About Now
WONDERING with the psalmist, we add our how longs, and God issues the answer: "It's not about now, it's never been about now." Still, we struggle with how we're to reconcile what is from what has been. Certain injustices, particular untruths propagated, and people seem not only to get away with it, but to prosper. Even as they have harmed us or those we care about or love. No, they don't. "They won't, and they don't" says God.
- See How Nobody Can Be Against Us
JUDGMENTS happen against people all the time - against ourselves and others. Character assassination by stealth or active engagement. Every person alive has been hurt. Some hurts are easy to recover from; others, well... let's just say we're working on those. We find it hard not to judge those who transgressed us. Then there are the hurts we are supposed to have inflicted; the ones to provoke another's judgment of us.

What happens during a NDE (near death experience)? Countless people have experienced the death of their physical bodies, then come back to life to share the insight from the other side.
- Rest Our Souls Crave and Deserve
I don't use the word 'deserve' lightly, but, in the context of the rest, our souls we're designed to find rest in this life, not just in the next. But what is rest? It isn't a lot of things. It isn't laziness, for indeed, the soul rests content having worked out of rest. No soul 'deserves' rest as a demand, but the need of a soul to rest is indisputable.
- What Christians of the World Wished the World Knew About Christians
How tragic it is, to fall for the lie that, because we're Christian now, our lives must be perfect. It's like the person who does not want to become Christian because they're not good enough yet.

- Be Careful What You Wish for - It Might Come True
WHEN you wear a T-shirt emblazoned with Jesus: Today, Tomorrow, Forever you can expect reactions. One recent day I got more than I expected. Especially from myself.
- God's Calling Is Never a Demand
PROVING a calling placed on our life by God is for the large part irrelevant, but one thing about the call is it's never a demand. God never demands we do anything, even His commands are not demands, for demands place something inconsistent with and untrue upon the character of God.
- The Mystic Serpent
Everything we see or perceive is the ultimate residue of some kind of energy. These energies are the derivatives of a single crude form of energy, also known as primordial energy. This primordial energy is known as "Adi Shakti" or "Adya Shakti" in Indian philosophy, especially in Tantra. When the "Shakti" goes into the manifestation, she begins that with the creative process which eventually shapes itself from the subtler forms to even denser manifestation to grosser forms. The Shakti exists in its limitless expansive state in the crown chakra. This place is the most transcendent, beyond the mind, beyond names and its corresponding forms. The goal of human life is to understand these false projections and strive to uncoil the sleeping energy so that it rises again to the Sahasrara and we attain the unified state once again. Then only we shall realize our true potential and identity.
- 3 Secrets About Tantra
Tantra is an age-old practice of spirituality which has the same or even greater potential to attain ultimate liberation when compared to other traits, for example, Vedantic concepts of Brahman and Maya, Variranga Sadhana or Vedic yajnas and oblations etc. Still, there are a lot of misconceptions about this wonderful system of the spiritual process. Tantra embraces all with a well-defined segregation on the basis of eligibility so that everybody can walk on the path of spirituality without being left out on the basis of literacy, caste, intellectual development and other classifications. Vedanta is tough to grasp and demands a keen and analytical intellect. Variranga sadhana requires a lot of methodical approaches which is difficult for a common man to execute. Tantra, on the other hand, moves with a scientific and sociological way so that it can prescribe or rather set definite methods for everybody. Tantra is a gift from the Adi Yogi, who was a true lover of life and a patron of mankind. He understood the necessity of classified methods based on the intellectual maturity and mental bent. Tantra is an easy and fast process to attain salvation. Read the article to know more.

- Why, As Christians, We Are Doing It Wrong
Sin is a contagion all through me and all through my lifespan. I myself am a man who daily gets it wrong; the things I think, what I say, how and why and when I do things. Not one day goes past when I don't intentionally or unintentionally get it wrong. I am Christian.
