    Pedophilia is normal - Acorn is alive!

    in Politics

    Hr1  According to univ prof Margo Kaplan, people choose to sex offend children. They do not choose to be pedophiles.

    Kevin Jackson from The BlackSphere stops in to talk, microaggression, professional huggers, and a racial divide that splits families.

    The new mantra is, you can't tell me how many to love.

    How were 73 people shot in no gun zone Chicago over this past weekend? B/c gun control works! Right?

    Economic rundown. Who's cutting, who's closing, and who's giving up.

    CHAMBER OF PRAYER - Dissolving Fear and Negativity

    in Spirituality

    I stand boldly as I turn to face the fear and negativity that appearances in the world have conjured up in me. I remind myself that there is a Power within me that is greater than anything that is in appearance in the world. That Power is the Source and Sustainer of All Life and All of Creation. In this moment of Truth, I stop running from the false evidence appearing real  that has been projected into my life. I am set free of fear and negativity as I remember the One Power, the One Presence, the One Life that breathes in me and as me. The All-Knowing, Everywhere-Present Power is my Breath of Life -- my Source and my Substance. I am an acorn that has dropped from the great Tree of Life into the earth. All that the Tree of Life is, I Am. In the acorn, the fulness of the Oak tree is present as perfect potential. In me, the Intelligence, Love, Peace, and Power of the Source of Life is in full potentia. Right here where I Am the Omnipresent Life is fully present with everything I need to grow into the Tree of Life in full radiance. Right here in me is Divine and Perfect Potential, and I stand with absolute resolve because I am re-Minded that my Divine Potential (which is always wonder-FULL) is always present in me as the Divine Seed of All Good . Every moment that I spend contemplating the Truth-- that I am made out of Eternal Light and Infinite Life that The One Presence IS – causes the seed that I am to burst into an enduring life of Divine Expression. All shadows of doubt, negativity and fear dissolve into the nothingness that they are. My meditation on this quality activates the Divine Idea for my life, and the Kingdom and the Power within me are revealed on earth and in the realms of ever-expanding Good. ~Maisha

    Milling About @ The Acorn Hill Lodge

    in Entertainment

    Milling About visits Acorn Hill Lodge in Lynchburg, Virginia. Driving up the path you're greeted by a family of Shih Tzus, followed by their jovial smiling owners Wanda and Robert Crocker. A great couple, their relationship began in 1992 with a chance meeting at Valley View Mall in Roanoke.
    Nineteen years ago they bought what was to become Acorn Hill Lodge, a 1910 home sitting on five acres. Intending it as a medical massage therapy center, the lure of a B&B was hard to resist. Plus hospitality runs in Robert's family as his grandmother had a boarding house in Brooklyn. A former hospital worker specializing in massage therapy and a talent for construction, he rebuilt the lodge and spa from the ground up.
    Accented with acorns everywhere, there are 11 suites with a European flair as Wanda was a former nuclear energist who spent time abroad. Wanda and Robert urge New Yorkers to visit as it's a short train ride away. During hurricane Sandy 16 dogs and 35 people did just that!

    CHAMBER OF PRAYER - Abundant Life

    in Spirituality

    Today, my perspective on everything expands.  I am able to see things  from the height of the eagle’s flight and just as clearly.  Light shines so pervasively that I am able to see clearly how everything fits together.  I am no longer stuck with a narrow view of the Universe.  Instead, I perceive the oak in the acorn. I see the wo-man in the infant; I see the completed project in the first glimmer of an idea, and I see the sun in the substances of the earth.  I see each molecule of water as it bonds with others to form the vast oceans. I see purpose in every challenge and Love in the center of any experience of anger and hurt.  Today, Divine Intelligence expands my universe of thought and I see a Universe of Infinite Abundance. Today I realize the Unlimited Supply that is ever unfolding in the Universe of my Life. Prosperity is mine. Abundance is here for each one of us always and in all ways. The whole Universe is here for me now and forever. The Universe with all of Its resources is here for my use -- for the use of everyone of us. The mountains are mine to climb. The oceans are mine to sail. The sky is mine to fly safely in. The ground is mine to walk upon, to dig into for food and gold, and to build upon. The territory of my awareness is now expanded and I see abundnce all around me and it is here for me. It is here for all of us to use. Hallelujah!

    Mayor Marsh wants community leaders to put pressure on his city Council to support a ½% sales tax in the next election.

    Marsh claims that 80 to 90% of the tax will be spent on public safety. Surely the pressure on the Council will come from the Modesto Police Union, whose mission is to obtain more money, better benefits, and job protection.

    Given the choice between more money and more officers the unions have historically selected more money.

    Two years ago, former Mayor Carmen Sabatino headed the “NO 0N MEASURE X” campaign and spent $3000.00 to defeat the measure while the Mayor’s supporters spent over $178,000 in a failed attempt to pass the tax.

    Measure X failed because the people got it, they understood that giving seven people on the City Council $26 million a year to spend as they pleased was not a good idea.

    Now he wants only want $14 million and claims it is just for public safety.

    Termed out Councilman Dave Lopez, who has been a cheerleader on the Council and accomplished little else opposes the tax.

    Marsh and Lopez cannot explain what they did with $25 million of federal funds for the neighborhood stabilization program.

    The city received 10% or 2.5 million to administer and supervise the federal money. Then, Mayor Jim Ridenour, claims he didn’t know anything about SCAP and it wasn’t his business how much they paid their executives.

    The newspaper at the time distracted the community with the reports on SCAP, which was really a small part of the larger scandal that forced bee editor Mark Vasche to tell the Bee publisher that he had a conflict and could no longer participate in any meetings to discuss the scandal.

    There are many other examples that lead to the logical conclusion that Marsh should not ask for any more money until he reveals what’s been done with the money they have already been given.

    Author John S Weiss On Paranormal Filler

    in Paranormal

    From the bio on his web site:

    How can a simple acorn lead to a series of fascinating experiences in the afterlife dimension? Well, one night after meditating myself to sleep by focusing my mind’s eye on a beautiful little acorn, I awoke in what I assumed to be a super-realistic dream. All my senses were heightened in a way that was nearly impossible for me to comprehend.

    During the first of a series of these profound dreams, I met a young man named Lyle who informed me that I wasn’t dreaming at all, but had mistakenly tunneled my conscious being into the world of the dead. What a joke I thought!

    Of course, I didn’t believe one bit of it; I simply thought my dream was some sort of a ridiculous hallucination. But the next time I meditated myself to sleep, I returned to this impossible world with Lyle waiting for me. Thus began a long series of incredible dreams where my ghostly new friend accompanied by his thought-constructed girlfriend taught me a wonderful new way to perceive life.

    I learned a wide range of mind-boggling things, from a revolutionary biological mechanism that makes the afterlife a scientific reality, to a startling theory on the origins of Christianity. We also had lengthy discussions about the benefits of brain dysfunction, why a universal intelligence (Creator) makes just too much sense, and so much more.

    When we took a break from our often heated discussions, we went on absolutely mesmerizing trips that were derived from a compilation of millions’ of peoples’memories spanning thousands of years. Most of these excursions were thrilling, while a few were quite disturbing.

  • International Sunday School Acts 5:27-29,33-42 wk of 09-20-15 by Grover Weaver

    in Christianity

    Hello everybody I am Grover weaver and this is the Grover Weaver Ministries Sunday School Class live on the Web. Welcome to this week lesson in Acts 5:27-29, 33-42.

    In chapter 5 of Acts you have the death of Ananias & Sapphira a husband and wife who lied to the Holy Spirit. The death of this devilish couple flipped the church and all who knew of their death from a lukewarm spirituality to a deep reverential fear of the Lord.

    The signs and wonders done by the apostles flipped the political base of the Jews in Jerusalem from conservative to progressive...

    And they suffered persecution for their faith.

    Not like the so-called persecution by the conservative church who want the government to use her police power to force their faith on you and take your rights and freedom away so they can have freedom of consciousness...

    V27-29 the men are being question before the council by the high priest, if you remember in the last class they were on trial for doing the  same thing...

    V33 The disciples spoke up

    Gamaliel, in V34-39, a renowned teacher on the council, a Pharisee spoke up...

    V40 They heeded the advice of their teacher, Gamaliel, to not take their lives...

    V41 & 42 the apostles went away rejoicing that they were worthy to suffer shame in his name.
