A SPIRITUALIST JOURNEY THROUGH TIME – Part 3 by Henri Almanzar

This is where God, Spirit, Universe and higher consciousness become one. This is the “I AM” in the “I am” coming to fruition, through the understanding that it cannot live separate from the life source that creates it! There is a duality that is evident as we Awake and as we reach the higher levels of consciousness.  This is where the veil seems more transparent; allowing us to envisage the reflection of the greatness that created us, and this overwhelming sense of Awakening, creates a super ego that sometimes interpret what is happening to be about self as an individual, when in truth, we are part of an ecosystem. The Awakening is actually meant for us to acknowledge that….first! Here is where we still fail to see the whole picture.  Here is where we only see the “I” in the “I AM,” this is where we allow the notion, the dichotomy of life to convince us that we are the masters of our lives. This is where the “we got this” becomes the judgment of our own existence, failing to acknowledge our connection to the rest of the essence of life; a life that is Almighty in evolving through its own history, which is greater than the sum of all the parts known and unknown. Except from a highly evolved spiritual level it is impossible to conceive our complexity, our connection, our own singular vastness and value, within the greater scope that makes each of us codependent, and part of this evolutionary source, especially when we continue to foster the opposing belief that we are solely in charge of...

A SPIRITUALIST JOURNEY THROUGH TIME – Part 2 by Henri Almanzar

Time condensed, turns into time well spent as it evolves into eternity. Some time has passed since my journey to self-discovery forged a trench into the meaning of my search.  Traveling the roads of Colombia has led me to see within the measurement of time, a factor to my existence and relevance which is a reality that I never fully grasped, until, I landed right back where I started, in a place within me that I have always called home…. My conscious self! It has taken many roads through exterior winding country sides, to reach the inlays deep within the mind.  Ours is a mind that has always sought a certain level of enlightenment that I know resides in a place deep within.  There have been countless hours, days and months of thought upon thoughts, through conversations with my “sub conscious” self, that only my mind, which is constantly evolving, could detail, as “we” arrive at conclusions that only I could decipher, upon acceptance.  These thoughts are too real and true to ignore; too alive in me to not finally bring me to a point of awareness that I could not deny. Even using the roads less traveled, through the endless roads traveled in my mind, could not have actually prepared me for the depth of what I have come to understand.  It has taken everything that I am, to play its part and unfold an opening revealed in the truth that is me.  A truth I can barely understand, much less try to share as knowledge, with all its haunts, which consumes every corner of my daily existence....

REPEALING THE BUGGERY LAW IN JAMAICA – Marlene Daley

To say this is the dawning of a new day would be a rhetorical statement. It only goes to show how difficult it is to remove entrenched belief patterns in culture. This mindset becomes dangerous not only because people are led to live a life of deceit and self-denial, leaving ignorance in its wake, but because what is feared may live in the house next door. I thought it was the wrath of God that led me to live in Atlanta, a utopia for homosexuality, until I realized that it was for the understanding that man should be at liberty to express their unique self without prejudice and to accept the truth in “Conversations with God” which states, that God is not opposed to any expression of love. It was so hard coming here with my little island mind and adjusting to living in an advanced society among men who knew that homosexuality has existed since 2400 B.C. It is honestly still hard by certain measures but I continue to pray that God will help me to accept that which I cannot change and it leads me to wonder if I would suffocate living in Jamaica again as that self-righteous, dictatorial taint in mentality, continues to permeate every facet of life there. I am in total agreement with Dr. Michael Abrahams article in The Jamaica Gleaner today: One day, several years ago, while taking my daughter home from school, she asked me a very interesting question: “Daddy, regarding the buggery law, if two men are caught having sex, the punishment is to lock them up with other men. Does...
