Do Penance for supporting Barrack Obama?

 

Obama supporters were told not to take communion for voting for him both as a Senator and President Elect.  Why? Because of Barrack Obama’s stance on abortion. 

Members of Reverend Newman’s clergy are not outraged, they are listening and heeding.  I could feel the feeling of guilt when I watched the penance on the news this morning.  

I am curious how the McCain voters are thinking/feeling/treating the Obama voters in this congregation. 

I find this very interesting.  Barrack’s stance is that he trusts women to make the right choice and to consult with their families, doctors, and clergy to help them with the difficult choice.  He goes on to say that the focus should be on addressing the ‘root causes’ of unwanted pregnancy. 

In my professional life, I spend a great deal of time with root cause analysis.  We are so conditioned to fix with band-aids, that quick fix, that we lose sight of the bigger picture.  Quite often, the problem resurfaces with different symptoms, which we band aid again.  By analysing the root causes, prevention strategies can be implemented rather than spending time with avoidance strategies such that symptoms to the band-aids to the original problem are no longer necessary.  Continuing to address the root cause of the problem in solution development usually resolves the issue(s), granted new issues do surface; however, forward movement is achieved in the process.  Continuous Improvement is our journey in life – hence, Intent.com. 

Kaizen principles can be applied here.  Whoa, apply Kaizen to religion, politics, and in defining solutions for the general public…now that is something to consider.

Now I understand the desire to separate church and state  more fully.  It is about  balance of power and has nothing to do with church or state.  Keeping them separate, allows us to see the diversity of opinion, and allows us to make choices from being informed, choices that are right for us, and through seeing clearly.

I repeatedly see situations where the clergy puts their opinions in front of their congregation, the congregation members take the opinion on fully, even if they do not fully support it.  In my work as a Relationship Coach, religious influence by members of clergy is at least 50% of the work that I do to help my clients arrive at peace in their lives.  The power that clergy has over people is astounding and exerts influence from childhood to deathbeds.  I spend a great deal of time separating what the clergy said from what the holy books say, allowing my clients to read the words for themselves and having them think/feel through their own interpretation of the words. 

I feel that Joel O’Steen is so popular because he promotes the Word of God in a way that is full of Divine Love, influencing from a space of making a profound difference and removing himself from his personal agenda.

Here is a link to the YouTube video clips of Obama and abortion.  Check them out, including Sarah Palin, John McCain and others.

What is your stance on all of this?

Why believe in a God? Just be good for goodness sake.

FOXNews.com – ‘Why Believe in a God?’ Ad Campaign Launches on D.C. Buses – Local News | News Article 1:28pm  Source: http://www.myfoxdc.com/myfox/pages/

‘Why Believe in a God?’ Ad Campaign Launches on D.C. Buses, In lifting lyrics from ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town,’ the Washington-based group is wading into what has become a perennial debate over commercialism, religion in the public square and the meaning of Christmas.
This ad has caused a ruckus in religious groups all over the country. It is an interesting question that has me take a closer look. I don’t feel the question is offensive; maybe it is the group that paid for that ad that is offensive to others. I am a Coach and Metaphysician so asking questions is what I do.

When I ponder this important questions – why believe in a God?, I find myself not getting defensive but simply taking a deeper look at my connection to God and my Spirituality and the supporting reasons as to why. And it simply boils down to one answer, because I choose to.

So, is it an issue that the ad is being non-Christian or designed to attract those who are not associating with organized religious groups?

It is time that we all sit down and hear each other, what our beliefs are, accept each other, as GOD intended and not destroy or attack those who are in conflict with our own beliefs, and instead Love Unconditionally.

Miracles are not difficult

PRINCIPLES OF MIRACLES Chapter 1, Section I

"There is no order of difficulty in miracles.  One is not "harder" or bigger" than another.  They are all the same.  All expressions of love are maximal."

CONTEMPLATION

As I allow this verse to embody my whole being, I feel so uplifted in knowing that when I come from a space of Love, everything else works out and I experience surprises, miracles, on my path.  I now see that we make miracles hard or big because of our need and drive to cause the miracle which results in our egos blocking miracles in our lives due to the ego need for recognition or validation in having a part to play in delivering the miracle.

Self Love, Love for others, Divine Love, Seeing joy, perfection and love in ALL that is – these expressions are miraculous.  Now when my ego engages and I am feeling lack of joy or peace, I know that I am in the way and am controlling the outcomes rather than stepping aside, trusting in the Universe Divine, and allowing Inspired Action to run my daily doingness.

What a great way to start this Course, to share with you, and to re-member that my ego is not in control and to be in a space of Love allowing miracles to show up in my life, to not judge the miracle, simply to accept with Love and Gratitude.

Join me in the study, lessons, and Universal Teachings of A Course in Miracles.
