Spiritual Medium

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How do you feel about Sasha Grey, in a purely spiritual sense?

I just read a Rolling Stone interview with the girl and a few of the descriptions made me decide to ask this. Do you feel she is doing anything wrong, is she enabling others to do wrong? She claims she’s breaking down barriers to sexuality, how do you feel about that?
I do believe our religious/spiritual beliefs will pass judgment on her and determine the answer, good/bad/or neutral- is there any other way??

Answer by Staggerlee
i want to get to know her biblically and in several other very blasphemous ways she a dirty girl and needs a spankin

Answer by Pirate AMâ„¢
On of religion’s “gifts” to humanity (or at least our society and a few others) is a irrational, unhealthy approach to sex.

I won’t debate whether porn breaks down barriers, but breaking down the barriers is a good thing to do, especially given the sexually repressive nature of our society versus the portrays of the media.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : I need spiritual direction without fairy tales?

I am a very spiritual person, but christianity is too far-fetched for me. I need a spiritual direction which appeals to both basic human instinct and jaded 21st century rationality. Any suggestions?

Answer by Andymcj78 (Atheist)
You could look at Buddhist philosophy- you don’t need to accept the metaphysical stuff like karma if you don’t want to.

Answer by IRev. Albert Einstein
you’re not very spiritual if you reject Jesus.

He died for your sins….If you think you don’t have sin…you deceive yourself.

Taking responsibility for your sins is the first step toward spirituality.

Answer by Mulereiner
Ok then just make something else up….

Seems to be the fad nowadays.

Answer by Chelz
Buddhism, Taoism, Paganism, etc.

They tend to be very good with evolving with the times and adapting to changing attitudes.

I’d begin with researching Buddhism. One of my favorite things about it is that Buddha said himself to not believe anything, even things he says, unless they make sense to you personally. No irrational, package-deal beliefs.

Answer by solarius
Have you considered the Unitarian Universalists? One can be Christian, atheist, Pagan, Jewish or anything else and still be welcome in a UU congregation. They do not push any religious doctrine, and allow each individual to believe (or disbelieve) whatever they wish. There is a sense of community without an insistence upon religious dogma.

Answer by Parabola750
why do you need a spiritual direction at all?

Answer by Mysteri O
The Buddist philosophy is based on keeping your own house clean without passing judgement on others. I believe that as long as you live a good life and love others you’ll be fine. I also am very spiritual but have adopted no religion as mine. I believe in the power of the universe, but not in the Judeo-Christian philosophy.

Hannah, I hope maybe you don’t take this lightly, but needing a spiritual direction just for its own sake is silly. Everything should be aimed towards finding the truth regardless of its effect of happiness or appeal to us.

If you would like to talk more about it email me and can share you my views, I am a christian by the way.

Answer by Lakely
The most basic approach is from Socrates: Know Thyself.

In religious terms it is: Be still and know that I am God.

Both point to the kingdom within you. More on my bio. in Christian terms, but not Christianity.

And I also support the above approach on Unitarians. They are quite open minded and quite diverse in their beliefs.

What do you find about Christianity that is far fetched?

Answer by Zsolt H
You are in the same situation I was about 3-4 years ago.
I have read a lot of books, tried different courses, retreats, did not find what I was looking for.
Finally I have found an online free kabbalah course which led me to where I am now. I feel I have found my own spiritual direction.
So if you would like to try what has helped me, here is a short video, and also a link that can guide you to the first steps:

All the best with your search.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Do you believe that psychoactive drugs are inherently morally wrong?

What about entheogenic drugs, which are used for spiritual purposes?

If you answered yes to the original question, what is your definition of ‘morally wrong’? Where do you get your morals from?

Answer by Lee G
They are not morally wrong. I get my morals according to what I think is good and I think that letting people do what they want is good.

Nope.

Answer by Sinkronized
no

Answer by raddman711
Nope. In fact I think drugs get much more of a bad rep then they deserve. Most drugs can have very beneficial qualities after using them. Things like psychedelics and even MDMA (pure ecstasy) which was used to help people with alcoholism and post traumatic stress disorder.

Unfortunately as various drugs make their way into mainstream society the government worries about losing control of the substance and quickly makes it illegal without even researching the positive sides. As does most of society and the media that only display the bad sides to help sway people from trying them when really they’re not that bad.

Most of the stories you hear are exaggerated or are twisted. Such as blaming MDMA when really pills cut with other substances that can be dangerous is the real problem. The big issue with drugs is people as a whole, every one is so unique that the specific results from people being under the influence can vary making it harder to give a clear answer. And of course people who are simply irresponsible and drive, mix certain drugs together or simply don’t know their own self enough to use them. A small handful of people can ruin it for many who know how to use drugs correctly in a smart, safe way.

This is why I believe everyone should be given the respect to learn the complete truth behind drugs in an unbiased way and make up their own mind, since in the end it’s YOUR body. Not your friends, the media, government or anyone else’s.

In my opinion many drugs can be very useful as long as you respect it for what it is, don’t abuse it, and use it in a smart, safe and intelligent way. Unfortunately I’m probably in the minority to think for myself.

Hi! I am Kathy, a clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient psychic, as well as a fully-conscious medium. I do not use tools, so if you are looking for tarot, astrology or anything like that, sorry that’s not me!.

I have been psychic since childhood, tracing my abilities back several generations, through my mother and grandmother on my mom’s Irish side,and to at least my grandmother on my dad’s Polish side. We all get our gifts from God, and no other place.

The first time I really remember using my abilities was when I was about 10- we were lost on a trip to visit relatives who had bought a new house and farm in a different state. I was able to navigate our way to the relative’s house, and once there knew where everything was, even down to the silverware drawer! Deja vu, indeed!
