“THEY TOLD ME I WAS NOT WORTHY” – CHRIS & BRIAN’S WEDDING

“THEY TOLD ME I WAS NOT WORTHY”

CHRIS & BRIAN’S WEDDING

JANUARY 26, 2013

Chris & Brian Chris & Brian

 The internet affords us many privileges.  One of them is the opportunity to meet fascinating people that we would not otherwise know and may never see in person.  Thanks to my website and blog, I meet many people from all over the world. 

We are eternal beings; therefore, our Souls incarnate multiple times into a variety of situations for the unique learning experiences each offers.  Our Souls have inhabited male and female bodies.  We all incarnate as gay – we all incarnate as straight.  Why? 

Because our spiritual journey back to Oneness with Father/Mother God requires that we balance the qualities of male and female within ourselves—that we become androgynous, spirit beings.

As we make this journey to androgyny, every one of us yearns for the same thing—to love and to be loved … to be recognized, respected, and appreciated for who we truly are.

For this reason, Maryland’s vote during the 2012 Elections to make same-sex marriage legal is to be celebrated.  

Chris and Brian wanted their marriage—after being together for 15 years—to be both a celebration of their love and a celebration of the opportunity for all human beings to possess the same rights to marry the individual they love. 

As a symbol of this celebration, they have chosen as their “framed wedding picture” a photo of many of the people with whom they worked to successfully win the right to same-sex marriage.

 Same sex marriage - 1

Chris and Brian have placed videos of their wedding on YouTube.  I call to our attention the videos listed below.  They are amateur videos, so view them for the emotional impact they will make on us and hopefully, the broadening of our view of life and its various expressions. 

I pray that Brian’s story of his own experience of being gay in a very hostile environment will act as an epiphany of what we do to individuals when we refuse to accept them for who they are.

GIFTS OF LOVE FROM TWO FRIENDS

I include these last two videos to give all of us an example of the high caliber of individuals against whom we discriminate when we deny the right to same-sex marriage.  To watch Brian and Chris … their love for each other … the depth of love their friends demonstrate for them gives a very personal touch to discrimination and denial of human rights.  Marriage is a celebration of love and every human being thrives on LOVE!

May viewing these four videos change our lives!

Thank you, Brian & Chris, for being the Love Beings that you are!

 

MAY WE CELEBRATE LOVE IN ALL THAT WE DO, SAY, & THINK

HENCEFORTH & FOREVERMORE!

MUSINGS OF AN AWAKENING MINISTER

MUSINGS OF AN AWAKENING MINISTER

  My partner and I have been invited to The Governor’s Mansion.  I have no clue as to what I shall see and learn today.

The very fact that our Governor has continually pushed for openness and acceptance is at least a very positive step in the right direction.  He, as well as his wife, come from old lines of Catholicism and Democratic ideologies.  I have watched their Catholicism drop away in recent years, and their embracing of that which is immune to the control of the church be evident in their open discourse.

Frank and I were talking yesterday about how wonderful words have that “double meaning.” Just the wonderful word “conservative,” meaning one who conserves, (we practice “green” as much as we are able– we conserve!!) has become a word that connotes hate, fear, division, exclusivity and NO LIGHT!

Shall we seek a new language?  What shall the language of love be?

When Frank and I went to get our marriage license on Thursday, we were immensely impressed by how “the fixed language” of centuries has already been altered and embraced by those simply working in the Courthouse.  Already, we see the term “bridal registry” gone, and “wedding registry” in it’s place.

The Courthouse workers were 100% aware that same-sex people were all coming in and applying for their licenses, and it felt as if they were all saying “Welcome home,y’all.  Glad to have you.  We support you!”

They radiated smiles and warmth.  They took our picture.  They offered congratulations…. and ya know what… it was not put on!  It was genuine and heartfelt!

As a empath, I can “feel” what is sincere and what is not.  I have always been able to distinguish between what a person is saying, and what their true intent is. It IS an energy that one can feel.  As I continue to awaken and trust the amazing intuition of my own Godhead, I am free to enjoy this energy when I recognize it.

When out in the world I CAN sense and am drawn to it and it to me—the energy of love in people.  The amazing conversations and encounters, no matter how fleeting they may be, are easily recognized more than they ever were before.  I used to feel in a minority when it came to finding the positive energy, but it is so permeating at this time.

This is NOT “wishful thinking” in the former way of old thought.  Instead, this is true, honest, trust-able love energy that keeps connecting itself from one person to another.

In these last few weeks I have been attracted and connected to people that have felt as if they had been my closest friends all along.  This is a truly amazing power/energy to feel!

Deep calleth unto deep” and spirit recognizes spirit, and energy recognizes energy.

This is so invigorating to experience every day now. Stepping out of the door of my home is an adventure, an epiphany, a new beginning everyday.

This is not the old “Gee, Jesus is coming back syndrome,” but rather a palpable KNOWING that transcends words.

“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, nor hath entered into the heart of humankind the things that God  [big G, little g… doesn’t matter!] hath prepared for

them.”
