Saturday’s Soul Workshop has changed over to Zoom & New Blog

I am changing the format for this Saturday’s Soul Workshop. We are going to do this on Zoom. We will start at 11:00 am CST, take a short break at 12:15 and take a half-hour break at 2:00pm CST. We’ll resume at 2:30 and go until 5:00pm. This workshop is about the Soul’s Perspective of Before Life, Life, Death and After Death. The cost is $99 and you sign up by sending an email to: jr4echo@gmail.com.

I hope you can join me. It’s going to be a great day.

Next, I would like to share a blog I wrote on Sunday:

We Have Committed ONE Sin Only

One of my students recently asked me to describe God which at first seemed like an ominous request. My brain stumbled to find words that describe Spirit which is again ominous.

This morning while working in my garden an answer came to me. The Bible tells us over and over again that God is Spirit but no one translates that for us. What is Spirit? What are WE? The Bible also tells us we are made in God’s image and likeness. Hmmmm. What does THAT mean?

It became crystal clear to me. We have committed ONE sin and only ONE. We Humans have created God in OUR image and likeness. We bypassed the whole Spirit thing and went right to creating God in our human image and likeness. Think about it.

I have asked God so many times in meditation and in regressions to show me Himself/Herself and I always see these amazing images of what I guess I will call Spiritual Energy. Do you know what energy looks like? Are you able to visualize what God’s energy would look like? It’s massive and beautiful and strong and glistening with hope and love. It’s non-judgemental. It’s hopeful, creative and happy.

We have been given the wrong information and I know many of you are not going to like that I said that but it’s true. WE HAVE MADE GOD INTO OUR IMAGE AND LIKENESS AND THAT IS NOT A PRETTY PICTURE. That is not reassuring. That is scary. No wonder so many people don’t want to deal with God.

If you are a church going person, ask your clergy to teach you about God as Spirit. When the Bible says we were created in God’s Image and Likeness, I believe this is referring to our SOUL. Not our physical body. If we want to feel any hope about this planet, we need to stop seeing God as one of us and start seeing God as the real true Spirit that He/She is. It’s equally male and female. It doesn’t cause disasters and hardships. Humans do that. It doesn’t create illness in our bodies. Humans do that. It doesn’t decide who gets to win the lottery and who is poor. Humans created the lottery. Not God.  Why can’t we humans see that all the misery created on this planet is not the working of a mean guy up in the sky, but because of our own shortcomings? Our jealousy and vengeful thinking. Our false pride and ego. All the negativity we put on God is actually US.

What would God look like to you if we took away all the physical characteristics of a human. This is definitely something we need to ponder. What if the God we’ve been taught about is none of the negative things we hear. Jealous, Vengeful, Angry guy sitting up in Heaven taking our inventory’s and deciding who gets to get all of their rewards in Heaven (as long as they suffer A LOT here first) and if we’ve been bad (and who knows how HE defines BAD) we go to a burning inferno until eternity.

This whole theory smacks of humanness. Yes, that is our ONE and ONLY sin and we need to make some serious adjustments in our beliefs and see the Creator as He/She really is. A Spirit of love, hope, creativity, acceptance and so much more. Us humans are so limited in our thinking about God and what a shame that is. I wonder how many lifetimes it will take all of us to realize this.
