Got Morals?

So, today I was told I am "immoral." And this made me think of all the times I've heard this in the
past... Personally, if I'm required to live within someone else's little boxed idea of what "moral" is in order to be so, I'm proud to be considered "immoral!"

I mean, lets take a look at some of the reasons I've been called "immoral" in the first place...
1.  I believe in marriage equality for EVERYONE in all and any form of marriage - Gay, Straight, Open, Closed, Plural or Singular... As long as everyone is entering the marriage of their own free will, I say go for it!

2.  I do not view the human body as shameful, dirty or sinful. Nudity to me is completely natural and healthy. Skin is skin, regardless of whether it's an arm or a penis... It's not scary, offensive or harmful, it's just skin!

3.  I do not view sex as sacred!  To me, sex is completely physical. It has nothing to do with love, emotion or marriage. You have an itch, you scratch it. That's it! Nothing sacred or special about it! Just use your head and make sure you're doing it because YOU want to and safely. Otherwise, I say go for it!  (For the record I'm not saying it CAN'T be sacred, special or emotional... It CAN be all of those... OR it can just be sex. With all things it's what you bring to the table that make it what it is.)

4.  I don't watch sports!  Believe it or not, I've been told that I'm immoral because I don't watch sports. I've been told I'm a bad wife and mother and even "unAmerican." Seriously, people?? I find them boring! My husband finds them boring! And my kids aren't interested... Why do you care?

5.  I don't vaccinate my family!  I know it's a point of contention on both sides of the issue, but frankly, it's not your choice what I do with my family or my body! I have done the research, for THIRTEEN YEARS! I have more research and education under my belt on this issue than any doctor I've met. NO, I am not putting my family at any risk, and NO I am not risking society... If you don't believe me, do the research yourself! I'm glad to give you a place to start!

6.  I eat meat!  If you read my post about this one, you know where I stand on it. But frankly, it boils down to this - I have researched this issue and made an educated choice which fits both my spiritual and physical understandings. If you don't agree, do something different.  Really, I don't understand why this is such an issue!

7. I'm Pro-Choice!  This could be a whole post in itself. But basically I think it's your body, and you should have the choice as to what happens to it - that includes pregnancy.

8.  I'm Pro-Death Penalty!  I figure if you have so little respect for life that you ended up on Death Row, I have no reason to have any respect for you or your life...  It's basic Karma!

I'm sure there are others, but none I can think of at the moment...

Of course there are those who believe if you aren't "main stream" you can't possibly have any morals. To which I usually just say "Screw off!" I, do, in fact, have morals! Morals which to me, seem like basic common sense, but which are apparently rather foreign to way to many others!  So let us explore the morals of such an "immoral freak."

1.  Be respectful of others!  It's unfortunate that you have to spell out things like "Do not kill" and "Do not rape" but you usually do in cases like this. I'm not going to list them all, but basically respect others - don't do things that will harm them, scare them, control them or oppress them! Do not place limits on them because of their race, religion (or lack of), gender, sexuality, age or health status.

2.  Do NOT abuse power!  Abuse is not simply something that leaves bruises and cuts! Abuse of power removes the rights of others and forces them to live lives not of their own choosing.

3.  Respect our Earth!  We only get one, so we need to ensure that all of our actions keep her in mind - otherwise, we're only killing ourselves!
4.  Remember that plants and animals are just as "alive" as you and I!  Obviously we can't live a life that never kills a plant, animal or insect - at some point we have to eat... But it's important to remember that we are all a part of the cycle and abuse of resources, needless killing/trapping does not benefit us or the world around us.

5.  Give to others that which we would choose for ourselves!  There are always those who are not as blessed as we are, and it's important to ensure that we are not only doing enough for ourselves and our loved ones, but those who can not give to themselves!

6.  Always stand up for those which can not stand up for themselves!  The strong should not abuse the weak, but should protect them!
 Again, I'm sure if I sat here long enough I could come up with more. But basically the "harm none" rule which I've talked about in the past really sums it up. Stand on your own feet, support others and always protect the gifts the Gods have given to us! It's not rocket science! Nor does it require any lengthy Dogma to explain or dictate.

I do not, and probably never will, understand the belief that one needs to have strict religious beliefs in order to possess basic morals. Morals are simply the principals which we live by and by which we define right and wrong. We all have them, religious or not, main stream or not.

I am not "normal" and I'm proud of that fact! I live outside of what is the accepted and conservative, and that's how I like it! Maybe I do make my own rules, but that's how I see the world. If you don't agree with me, then follow your own path, but if you try and force your "morals" on me out of some belief that I'm wrong, I'm going to stand up for myself in every and any way I may need to!

Have you experienced physical, emotional, mental or spiritual traumas? Do you feel stuck and unable to move beyond an emotional struggle? Are you are experiencing recurrent medical problems and can’t find a reason why. You may have just stumbled upon the solution you’ve been looking for! Chakra Healing!

This book is about to help you take your life to the next level!

Meditation is a simple skill that anyone can master! In this book you will learn everything you need to know about beginning your journey with meditation as well as more advanced techniques to build on your basic knowledge.

The first key is to understand meditation, and what it actually is. It’s then also important to understand how you can use meditation to your advantage and why you owe it to yourself to master this skill. This book highlights these points beautifully for you.

Once you've done that, you simply need to apply the tips and tricks in this book to your own life and you will soon be well on your way to learning how to meditate and how to improve your life drastically. Once you do that, the world will become your oyster.

So you want to change the world?

Do you look at the world as it currently exists and recognize that there is a higher possibility waiting to be created?

Do you feel an internal calling to use your talents and passions to move us towards a positive future -- a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive?

If you answered 'yes' to these questions, then this book is for you!

Author Mark Gilbert asks us to consider how we each play a role in moving from any current worldly conditions that are less than what we want and towards the world we desire?

And in answering that question -- and our calling -- he suggests that it is really about our adopting an evolutionary outlook on life – and each of us becoming an evolutionary 'spiritual' change agents.

Yet, he points out, "spirituality" is not about "religion"! It is about our own personal relationship with a higher power, our recognizing that we are all connected, and that we are all here on the same spiritual evolutionary journey!

Building on the concepts presented in his books Our Spiritual Evolution and Our Spiritual Rights and Responsibilities, Gilbert encourages us to each become proactive creators in our own “sphere of influence.”

In this book, Gilbert takes a look why we should consider becoming such a change agent, what our personal vision is for the world and seven steps to becoming a spiritual change agent!

The book also includes a number of essays to assist you in developing this mindset and an annotated list of resources to assist you on your journey of change!

Angels are Real; Angels Exist. Angels don’t necessarily appear in the most dramatic of ways, with wings and halos and harps. Your Guardian Angel can come to you in the most subtle of ways, but they are there all the same. Accounts from thousands of ordinary people testify to that. The proof is out there; Angels exist; Angels are Real. Guardian Angels, Archangels; they come to help, often in the most desperate of circumstances, whether in a whispered voice in your ear, a sudden strong instinct, the touch of an unseen hand, the feeling of arms around you, or the mysterious stranger who comes to your aid and disappears into the night.

True Stories of Near Death Experiences and Afterlife Communication.
Heaven is Real, Heaven Exists; Evidence of Life After Death, Proof of the Afterlife..
‘I could see light, in which rainbows seemed to play, pale as the dawn, of gray loveliness. For delicate beauty it seemed I had never seen anything more fascinating or alluring. There were houses, flowers, trees; everything was so life-like it amazed me.'
‘A throng of cheery, brightly smiling, laughter-filled young men and women; their faces radiant. They wanted me to join them. I had never been more at peace; absolute calm surrounded me, within me. Their love tugging me toward them..I wanted to be a part of them more than anything I can remember every wanting.’
‘What the light conveyed was love. There was love everywhere, it was like love came from the grass, love came from the birds, love came from the trees.’
‘I know that I and others have been given near death experiences so we can share our experience and make people understand that death is not to be feared and that Heaven is real.’
‘I’ve seen hundreds of these types of experiences- hundreds! I have worked for hospices for several years and it is normal and common for a dying person to have visions..Their loved ones come to get them, tell them it’s ok.’
‘I have seen this many times. Someone is getting ready to pass and they reach for someone they can see but we can’t. I know there is something special and breathtaking awaiting us on the other side.’
George Gallup, Jr., of Gallup Poll fame, in his book Adventures in Immortality, reports that five percent of the U. S. adult population have had a near-death experience. This percentage equals about 8,000,000 people who have had such an experience. 800 people have one each day.
Whilst it is true that all of these cases show brief glimpses into heaven, one cannot help but wish to know more about what Heaven is like, what happens there, and so following on from book 1 'Heaven is real;Heaven exists,' after a look first at some more of the reported descriptions of Heaven from Near Death experiences, this book seeks to look further; into some of the many reported true stories of DBV’s, or ‘Death bed visions’, and ADC’s, or After-death communications, for more documented and verified proof of life after death and the survival of consciousness.

Anxiety is a serious illness, which if not taken care of it can destroy your health. Try natural remedies before taking prescriptions from physicians. It is a good idea to try natural herbs first and if these don’t work for you, then try to add other vitamins into your daily routine and change your diet, as well. It is important to take care of ourselves. Even though this is not a physical illness, it is vital to get rid of your anxiety as quickly as possible.

I have struggled from anxiety for years, until I found these natural herbs inside this book to relieve my anxiety. There are several herbs listed inside with tips on how to take each herb.

How does it work, and how do we use it?
These questions and many more are answered in the amazing new book!
Reiki is usually taught on four levels One, Two, Advanced and Master. However, there are actually eighteen levels. For the first time all levels are incorporated together...
There is a lot of interest in ‘Spiritual’ or ‘Natural’ healing today, with many people in the West seeking the ancient knowledge of the East. A lot of people have heard of the word ‘Reiki’ but do not really know what it is. There are others who have received training, but still have many unanswered questions.
Reiki is all about directing energy to heal, and it is far more than just a ‘New Age Gimmick’. If you are interested in alternative or complementary therapy, or just feel that there is more to life than the hustle and bustle of these stressful times, then this is the book for you…

Professor James Houk presents a dark gospel; the manuscript Humanus Diabolicus is entrusted to him by Avatar with an urgent plea to publish it as a warning of the end of humankind on this earth.
The result shows how the bad behavior of humans leaves the Great One (God) frustrated and apathetic. His ability to repress the nighmarish phantasmata, the somnia atrox, is compromised, and the terrifying creatures are released into human reality.
Only one person, Brendon Pruitt, can save the human race. Iconoclast, reluctant messiah, possessor of special gifts, Pruitt expores the nature of God and finds the future is not predestined but fluid and mutable.
"Dr. Houk has hit a home run that only someone with his background could have written. A scholar of anthropology and religion, he backs his premises with excellent data,making us think along with him."-- Dr. Charles Isbell, Prof. of Hebrew & Jewish Studies, Louisiana State University

This book of poetry covers the continuum of life and death experiences from a personal and existential perspective, with an emphasis on spiritual transcendence.

The Universe made me aware that I must publish this eBook on 14/5/14 at 19:16 the time of the Wesak Full Moon and Buddha Day. Interesting to note that the numerology of the date digits down to 5 5 5 & 14 has always been a significant number for me.

For a good many years I have held a view concerning my philosophy about life. I must emphasise that this is my own personal viewpoint but it is certainly very real for me. I believe that it goes like this. Before we are born there is a choice about our life and what we need to learn this particular time. Our parents, living conditions, general circumstances and major life lessons are decided. Then the right hand of a God tosses me into the world, saying “Now see what you make of it this time”. It seems very much like one of these computer games where you need to find something and get over many obstacles along the way. These obstacles are like tests which you need to deal with in whatever way. I know for me that when I look back at times, I can really see how just much I have been able to progress. I liken our personal pathways to a jigsaw, a piece here or a piece there, which leads us on to what we need at that time. At some point everything suddenly falls together as we work towards completing the puzzle.

I believe that this World of ours is like a stage, and that we are all actors on it, living and learning and that we are all one, that anything we do to deliberately hurt others, will hurt us, and everything we do to genuinely help another will help us. Throughout my life I have realised that it is pointless to bear any grudges, as this will hurt us, but sadly some do not wish to give up these grudges and move on. I’m not saying to forgive anyone except ourselves. I believe that whoever took the part of teaching the lessons in our lives would have been our best friend/s in spirit, which is why they had that role in this lifetime. Remove yourself from them if you can, no need to allow an open wound to keep festering. Sometimes it is not possible or desirable to make amends, so that is the time to move on. I have heard people say that this was just not possible for whatever reason, but I do practice what I preach. I should not really be preaching though, but it may not help otherwise.

A secret which once uncovered can be used to bring you lifelong success in any endeavour.

It is quite different to any other secret you may have encountered that revolves around the nature of success.

The application of this one common denominator is seen in every successful achievement of a long term goal.

Through tireless years of interviewing some of the most renowned people in the world including Dr. Stephen R Covey – Bestselling Author and US Presidential Advisor, High Court of Australia Justice Michael Kirby, Writer of the Hollywood Blockbuster Movie ‘Pay it Forward’ Catherine Ryan Hyde and many more, researching their books, and through the deep observation of the general nature of things and human behaviour I hold in my hand this secret.

Kwan is a political prisoner at Camp 22, Aradia is a mental patient at Serbsy Centre and the twins 164XY and 626XY are a product of a lab. They are all property of their governments to experiment on at will, hidden away from the public's eye.

After years of her emotions being repressed Aradia begins dreaming again, against the Doctors' knowledge. Suddenly the impossible seems imaginable and revolution is imminent.

Have you ever considered creating your own homemade lotions?

We all need some lotion to keep our skin healthy, moisturized and smooth. There are different varieties of lotions available in the market. Most of them contain ingredients which may harm your body or skin in some way or the other. If you are living in an area where the climate is hot or cold, then you will surely need the lotion to soothe your dry skin. Though the advertisements about the commercial lotion products promise you better looking skin, it is true that they have certain adverse effects on your skin in the long run.

Moreover, the branded high quality body lotions are very expensive these days and it is not easily affordable by many people these days. The branded lotions may contain harmful toxins, dyes, preservatives and many other chemicals which may affect the texture and smoothness of your skin when used continuously. It is necessary to use hand lotions on hands only and to use face lotions on face only. Using the hand lotions on the face may cause the pores on the skin of the face to get clogged and it may cause acne and pimples. So, the best option is to go for homemade lotions and with all the ingredients needed to make homemade lotions easily available in the marketplace. Making lotions at home is very easy.

Acne isn't just a problem that teenagers and high-schoolers have to go through.

Natural remedies work with your body systems to prevent and cure illnesses, cold, and flu. What they do is to activate your systems ability to fight and defend your body against the causes of these illnesses with no side effects. Medicines, on the other hand, may bring you faster results. However, they usually relieve the symptoms and therefore results are often temporary. Doctors will never tell you that all medicines contain toxic ingredients in varying levels. This is why medicines have side effects ranging from common, mild to severe, and life threatening.

For many people, it really makes sense to look at herbal remedies as a different approach to such concerns as cold and toothaches, skin problems (psoriasis and eczema), gastrointestinal problems (food poisoning and upset stomach), and even common infant health concerns (colic, teething, and diaper rash).

You may be wondering just what Organic Gardening is, and how it is different from ‘ordinary’ gardening. Well, let me tell you a secret: Organic Gardening means traditional gardening, good, wholesome practices and principles that your parents and grandparents used (and further back a whole lot longer than that). It means knowing your ground and your space, and using it to its fullest potential, and not making yourself ill with unnatural toxins or forcing your plants to do things they don’t want to do. What many people don’t realize is that a lot of ‘ordinary’ gardening can be dangerous, for both ourselves and our children’s long-term health, as well as for wildlife and biodiversity. If we just take care to choose the right plants, to enrich our soils naturally, with methods that have been in use ever since the human hand first turned the soil, then we can actually make ourselves and our neighborhoods healthier, richer and certainly more beautiful.
