On marriage and priests

September 29, 2016

Filed under: Art, Photo, Quotes

Even if this passage in the New Testament clearly states the importance for a clergy man of having a wife (only one) and a family with kids to raise, something must have been later misunderstood by the Catholic church, which later instituted the vow of celibacy for priests, probably to bring the church people closer […]

Allow yourself to be inactive. Only when you are completely quiet and unaffected by surrounding vibrations you can learn to be in touch with your true inner self. Hear the inner voice of faith and love that lives within each and every one of us. This is the gentle, inner child voice, the one who […]

However things might look like, Good things will come to you. But you have to trust in the Universe. You have to not be seeking, but enjoying the stillness, in order to find. If you look too actively and too restlessly, and don’t have faith, you will not see and you will not find – […]

The energy continues to be intense, as it has shifted after Mercury ended its retrograde period and went direct a couple of days ago, and we passed the Equinox.

Venus in Scorpio might bring a heightened need for openness, exploration, and digging into our darkest holes to bring light back into them. Just because today’s energy is so intense, love extra hard. Risk everything. Don’t give in to fear! This energy can be destructive if not handled with care, but it is also a […]

In several posts, I made a point about following your instincts, your inner guidance, your intuition, and so forth. While that is definitely something I believe in, we need to understand that you can only do so *properly* when you are really connected to Source. A lot of people mistake their own ego games and […]

Follow your guts! Trust your instincts, as they don’t lie. Have you ever met people who were polite and friendly and looked OK ‘on paper’, at the beginning, but you felt something was ‘off’? Was that feeling right or wrong? Did they later turned out to be nasty or manipulative (or both)? Why didn’t you […]

On some days, you might be feeling like a ‘Frog Prince’ from the famous fairy tale: you don’t think much of yourself, you look in the mirror and you see only faults, you feel trapped by limitations that have been cast upon you like a spell. But really, we know there is a shining prince […]

Our car is a 15 yrs old Volkswagen van, which we transformed into a camper. In one of the external rear-view mirrors, a spider has found home, some time ago: she lives hidden inside of the mirror case, behind the mirror, most of the day: I guess it probably stays cool, during the day, in […]

Tell your ego to shut up. Burn your demons and your fears. Open your heart and see how the good choices feel good and calm and empowering, deep inside of you. When you let your mind’s projections to take hold on you, instead, you spiral down with them, making them bigger, and often lashing out […]

Every so many years, pretend to relocate: go thru all your stuff and throw away everything you have not used or needed and that – if you were to relocate – you would not move. (Donate what’s still good but you just don’t use or need; others might need those items.) Making space in your […]

Our guardian angels – and other angels, and the archangels – are all around us and with us at all times. They hear our prayers. They are always ready to help us. Unfortunately, all too often, we despair and try to do it all by ourselves; if we don’t explicitly ask for their intervention and […]
