Why is There a Devil… Just a Fictional Character…

Posted by apwood on April 16, 2009

So.. although I would consider myself a very spiritual person… I’ve never been religious.

I was baptized in two different christian religions and made to attend church as a child – which was good.  I learned the bible teachings, different religious philosophies, and the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ aspects of religion. (which is a whole other post)

In a nutshell, I think religion can be a ‘good’ thing offering people peace, fellowship, and purpose.  But, for me, the ‘bad’ fear-based teachings that you must be ‘a good person’ or you will find yourself face to face with the DEVIL when you die was always a problem for me.

Even as a young child it seemed backwards to teach love and acceptance for fear of hell.  Just never resonated with me.

So I chose as an adult to read about other religions and find what spirituality meant to me without participating in religion.  I found that unconditional love, acceptance, and non-judgment were the basics that made the most sense.  They feel good and right to me.

For me, I do believe that I have an obligation (mostly to myself and my evolvement) to strive to be a ‘good’ person.

Honesty, loyalty, unconditional acceptance, love, kindness, and giving are all words that I would hope one day would be words that those who knew me would use to describe who I was.

All of this I feel is important because of who I want to be not what I fear will happen to me if I do not.

I do not believe there is a separate entity named the ‘Devil’  although i do think the pain we may cause ourselves and others through unkind acts could be dark and painful, which could describe the despair we may feel.

I receive a daily email from Abraham-Hicks Publications.  They are excerpts from their teachings.  I was moved to share this as it seemed to sum up my underlying disbelief in a devil.

The “devil” is a fictional character made up (and perpetuated) by insecure humans who want to control other insecure humans. There’s a lot of power in fear, isn’t there? There shouldn’t be, because, really, what fear is, is power-less. If you understood Source, as we do, you would never fashion such fiction because there is only Well-Being that flows from that which is your Source.

Excerpted from the workshop in North Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, March 6th, 2004

Our Love,
Jerry and Esther

I found this very powerful.

I also was moved to look at fear as something that i do to myself to take my own power away.

Wow…. it takes one sentence to change a perspective.  It can be said a hundred different ways but maybe only one really makes it clear.  Writing is a beautiful thing.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

WANT to Know the WHY’s & HOW’s of AUTISM?

Posted by apwood on April 9, 2008

These videos clearly state WHY children get Autism and HOW to reverse it….. So WHY have less than 7,000 people watched them?

Why is it that preventing or reversing our children’s suffering does not get the publicity it deserves?

Take a few minutes… you’ll be amazed at how simple the answers are….

i recommend watching all 4 of his videos to get the whole picture.

Please pass it on…. the more people learn, the more we do, the more children we help!

There are many other childhood diseases that I believe are linked to vaccinations as well.

My daughter fought Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis a few years ago. I tried to share my story through major magazines and publications and we were denied. Only the small and no-greed-seeking-truth-publications happily published it.

(This was just what we did to help her heal – not mentioning why we believed she acquired an auto-immune disease)

Although, I do believe that she suffered because of an adverse reaction to receiving 4 vaccinations at one time. Shortly afterwards she had a 105 degree fever that would not come down and the hospital could find “nothing wrong with her.”

I suppose they didn’t have a test called “4 vaccinations at once toxicity that wrecked her immune system.”

If you are interested in reading our story and what we did to heal… you can read it in 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health,” available at www.GreenLifeSaver.net.

Why SHOULD YOU Help Shut Down Puppy Mills?

Posted by apwood on April 4, 2008

Dear Friend,

Do you know about puppy mills? If you don’t — and even if you do — then you’ve got to watch this undercover video:

http://humanesociety.org/stoppuppymills

Puppy mills are large scale operations that force breeder dogs to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for puppies. Puppies sold in pet stores or through Internet sites come from places filled with suffering, disease, malnutrition, and loneliness. Even the puppies themselves are often prone to a variety of diseases. Some die within days or weeks of purchase.

The Humane Society of the United States is working to stop puppy mills and they need your help.

Please watch this short video that exposes the cruelty of puppy mills. Then, you can take action by pledging to stop supporting the retailers that perpetuate cruel breeding practices.

Thanks for taking action!

I signed up today after my friend Carey sent me this video – this is the email to share to let others know about this travesty.You can also learn more on Oprah today – her show is about Puppy Mills.
