This one little blog post from a year ago crashed my server yesterday :)

This little quote speaks to so many people, just as it spoke to me when I first saw it. Hmm, I’d been so busy with starting my business, and miscellaneous family planning, that I’d ignored this special place (SpiritualMind) where I’d share thoughts and exchange ideas with great people.

It’s hard sometimes to make time even for those things that give you a lot of pleasure. I’m not sure why that is. Is the pressure of everyday life overwhelming that basic pleasurable need? Is it a fear of pursuing a passion? Not sure.

This huge traffic surprise jump-started me a little. I’m hoping to pick things up with the blog again soon, and I’ll share some of the trials and tribulations from the last year or so.

With love, Alex :)

Was Jesus gay? According to Elton John…Yes!

In this week’s Parade magazine, Elton John shares his thoughts on Christianity, and yes they’ve caused a bit of an uproar :)

“I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don’t know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you’re as good as dead.”

It should be interesting to see how this plays out, and if there’s really any backlash. I think most religious organizations have learned that ignoring this kind of hot button stuff is the best policy, otherwise by condemning it you end up creating a snowball effect. But it’s not like the Catholic Church has been quick to learn from its mistakes.

Who would of thought you’d get in hot water by calling the main religious figure of 2 billion people gay… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

FULL INTERVIEW IN PARADE

Let me know what you think – I’m sure some of you have strong feelings about this (one way or the other – LOL).

mass-we-pray

Every once in a while, a special little thing comes along that really grabs your attention.

So if you’re looking for the perfect holiday gift? How about a game with a Wii controller in the shape of a cross?

Introducing: Mass – We Pray. The video game for the whole family.

Now you can forget about going to church. Take care of all those spiritual needs in the comfort of your own home.

(Note: It looks fake, but I’m not 100% sure. According to their website, you can pre-order starting today. I smell a stocking stuffer.)

I’m sure we’ve all felt this way this way in school at one time or another. If you do a google search for Pythagoras (of Pythagorean Theorem fame) you’ll see that for him math was a religion. He actually created a wacky cult that revolved around it. One important tenet: never eat beans (look it up…)
