I apologize (to one and all) ...

if my posts have pressured and/or putdown others’ beliefs. I don’t think so, but one never knows. Habby and Mercury, I enjoy talking with you, but some of what you’ve described, Mercury, seems to require more mental energy to digest than what I have available at the present time. (And this is not a put-down, btw!) :-)

I just want to say, for myself, having a consciousness of “other” doesn’t preclude me from having to do the things I must – and in this life – that includes dealing with anxiety/depression, a bit of quandary over my upcoming empty nest, and concerns about my father (and living with same), who is in the middle of a manic episode, manifesting as irritability and now going on six weeks. I am also in grad school, limping along on $14k as a part-time teacher (which those of you who teach know requires full-time hours in prep and assessment) and ... just ... generally wondering ... when and how and why and what I can do that will make things better.

Dr. Bob’s paragraphs above, especially with regard to the focus here being related to “the service and worship of God ....” represents an ideal we all aspire to, and in whatever form we’re able to support one another, I’m all for it.

I often think of the quote, “In my Father’s house there are many mansions” when pondering the astonishing numbers of diverse paths people choose in their spiritual pursuits. (Who would ever have thought, for example, seeking my utmost to lift up and be of service to God and man I would come into contact with aliens on space ships? It certainly wan't my plan.)

Working with the rosary, channeling messages from the Pleides, use of healing stones, gem-elixers, shammanic journeying, drumming, worship in a faith community, contemplative work at home -- belief in reincarnation -- opposition to those beliefs .... There are many roads and I say, what works for one may seem/feel like heresy to another -- but if we can all be open, kind, gentle, understanding and sympathetic to one another -- that's not a bad way to go.

For now, it helps to know there are others out there who share some of my struggles and goals – and I’m most open to hearing any suggestions of faith-related practices which have been of benefit in the quest for a whole and productive life.

I’ll shut up for awhile now.
