Spiritual Principles

The spiritual aspect of the Universe is not capricious at all. Like the physical realm, it works according to principles. The misconception about Spirit is a human thing. Just as people thought the natural world operated by caprice, so they thought about spiritual things. Science has adjusted our view of the physical world so that […]

People ask why I do not get more personally involved with the Heathen community. You do not see me and my crew at events, gatherings, etc. Consider these as reasons we keep our distance. I have no desire to endure asinine attitudes and behavior. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all based on their respective scriptures. […]
