When the Blessed One had said these things, he greeted them all, saying, "Peace be with you! Bear my peace within yourselves! Beware that no one lead you astray saying 'Look over here!' Or 'Look over there!' For the Child of Humanity is within you! Follow it! Those who seek it will find it. Go then and proclaim the good news of the realm. Do not lay down any rules beyond what I determined for you, nor give a law like the lawgiver,. lest you be confined by it." When he had said this, he departed.

I'm Steve. I'm something of a spiritual nomad. I belong to an interdenominational church (UCC, Disciples, UMC, and PC). I'm also a member of the Soka Gakkai International. I've also been influenced by Paganism and Hinduism, so I'm all over the place. "Double-belonging" doesn't quite capture it for me.

I enjoy non-canonical scripture, as well as reading scripture from all sorts of different traditions.

I'm glad to be here.

That moment when you accidentally click on a YouTube video and end up watching it and are immediately reminded that there are no accidents.

prayer request, ph- (not me), cancer 

A very dear friend's sister is fighting breast cancer, and things seem to be getting worse, not better.

Please pray for my friend Monica and her sister Joan.

Asking for money 

I started a new job yesterday, but I won't be getting paid for a few weeks apparently. My bank account has about a dollar in it, and I've maxed out my credit card.

Would anyone be willing to either give or lend me some money for gas and groceries for the next few weeks? If it's a loan, I should be able to pay you back by the end of August.

Boosts are helpful and appreciated. Thanks!

I don't know if I want to go to church today. Things are likely to be very heavy, as they have been for nearly two years now.

I'm also off coffee for a while for health reasons, and my motivation to do anything is not what it should be, but I do have some work to do today.

RT @bahai_teachings - One must see in every human being only that which is worthy of praise. When this is done, one can be a friend to the whole human race. If, however, we look at people from the standpoint of their faults, then being a friend to them is a formidable task. -

It's Trinity Sunday. I wonder how Carrie-Anne Moss is celebrating today.

Need financial help, kinda urgent, please boost 

Hey there I'm having a hard time keeping up with my finances lately and I'm late for a few days for my rent payment (my landlord is pretty chill with that thank God) because I'm 150€ short. I would definitely appreciate some help with this 🙏🏻

If you're not in a position to donate, at least a boost goes a long way ❤️

Finally writing, because this book needs to come out of me, and because I need passive income.

Maybe I should write something about How to Make the Most of your Mid-Life Crisis.

mid-life crisis 

In a way, it's felt like a homecoming back to my authentic self. At the same time, I feel like I'm having to make my peace with my past-self, who would probably have hated what I've become now.

I'm overthinking things again. My life has been a great experiment, and I'm just trying to figure out what works best for me, enjoy the ride, and stop giving any mind about who thinks what of me. 2/2

mid-life crisis 

I feel like I'm only starting to understand what the Maharaj-ji meant when he said to Ram Dass, "Don't you see, Ram Dass? It's all perfect." Or when Jesus said to his disciples "Don't let your hearts be troubled." Or, for that matter, "Don't judge."

I woke up this morning with a creeping feeling of anxiety, and I ultimately turned it around by thinking to myself, "cool, this is a good opportunity to practice turning this sort of feeling around."


Preaching tomorrow. Wrote a thing. Going to rewrite that thing today. It's gonna be a very gay Pentecost.
