Re: Why Do I Still Feel the Spirit? (when I don't really believe)

Let me be clear Red; when I said I was shooting the Milky Way, that was with a camera and not a white substance one might place in their nasal cavity or any type of syringe. But I will say that adding some plant based magic molecules definitely helps synch me up with the natural divine cosmo. I sha...

Re: Mormons are able to gaslight themselves

It was enough to convince myself that my eternal salvation was on the line if I didn’t wear the authorized pattern day and night as instructed. But I realized a few things now: 1. I was born in the covenant to goodly parents. 2. I was blessed by a father who held the priesthood. 3. I attended from t...

Re: Why Do I Still Feel the Spirit? (when I don't really believe)

I always feel the spirit strongest in nature or while listening to music. F&T meetings not so much. I recently visited a daughter in Virginia and as she sang a lullaby to her little girl I broke into tears, and was quite emotional for some time. Gee, it might have been the Goddess Marimba. :o Maybe...

Re: The Church of Psilomethoxin

Interesting…

Is there a sacrament prayer?

Serious question. What was the approval process? I quickly read through that they will approve or deny your application of membership?

Re: Why Do I Still Feel the Spirit? (when I don't really believe)

I’m short on time so will throw out a quick answer and then come back to expound on. I believe it’s our brain neurochemistry and hope it’s universally God’s love. Or perhaps a bit of both? God’s love has the ability to penetrate our minds and hearts to excite our brains neurochemistry? But as Fluffy...

Re: Tithing settlement....or whatever they call it now.

I've told this story before, but I haven't been to tithing settlement/declaration in nearly a decade. Now, they still want to know my status, so every year I email or text the bishop my status. That's it. It's pretty easy to say why. Got a new bishop who wanted to know why I don't go. I simply say,...

Re: Consciousness

Those (NOM's) who don't know, but know that they don't know don't worry me. Those that don't know that they don't know scare me. In other words, there are those: mystics, religionists, etc. who think they know what is true but they don't. They will try to swallow a camel (Jesus's words) to prove wh...

Wow. How long is it going to take before the outlaws are "quick to observe" that there are more than one hole in Sis. RR's ears and give her grief over it? I will never forget Lord Bednar's talk on this subject, and how much it's contributed to Mormon judgy culture. In any event, exciting news! I h...

Re: A quick update.

So far the tattoo conversations go like this. Her: “A tattoo might be cool but I have no idea what I would get!” Me: “yeah…me neither.” Neither of us have any desire to get inked as of today. Could happen in the future but just haven’t thought of or found anything meaningful enough yet to go get any...

A quick update.

I’ve been purposely keeping updates to Sister Ryder’s faith crisis to a minimum out of respect and privacy for her story. However this just has to be told.

Her ears a week ago looked like this:

After this weekend:

How bout that?

Re: Tithing settlement....or whatever they call it now.

I always ask the Lord to take his share when I throw it up in the air towards heaven. And for some unknown reason I always get 100% back as if he’s telling me “thanks for the offering, but I have $100+ Billion and no need right now!” Seriously, if you want a quick an easy tithing declaration hack, d...

Re: What happened to the old NOM board?

Yes, many thanks to those of you responsible for bringing NOM back. I never had any hard feelings toward Thayne when the old Board died - he never owed us anything. We should be grateful for what he did, I personally didn't like some of the complaining I saw at the time. For myself, complaining was...

Have you discussed the dangers of him aimlessly pointing his pinky around? You know, since he has more power in his pinky finger than all the women of the church combined? Congrats on the family milestone. Even if it was emotionally difficult. I’ve been in the exact same position as you when my son ...

Re: I'm back. What is going on?

Hey Rob! Great to see you stop in. Let’s recap for you. 1. Using the term Mormon is scandalous. 2. Tithing is still 10% 3. Anything ending in “chino” is against the WoW. 4. Has anyone ever told you RMN was a heart surgeon? 5. Church is 60 minutes shorter but still intolerable. 6. Covenant path is th...
