SBNR Daily 10-1-10: Waterfall Relaxation

SPIRITUAL BOOK EXCERPT:

Old ways of thinking exert incredible force on our awareness, distorting reality as it’s actually unfolding in the moment. Human beings learn by association and repetition and find it difficult to drain the charge out of old beliefs and habitual patterns of reaction that have a lifetime of voltage in them.

From: Minding The Body, Mending The Mind
By Dr. Joan Borysenko

    Part I was OK, but Part II of Dennis Hunter’s: Spiritual But Not Religious, The True Heart Of Religion, was outstanding, especially the lead in: “Spirituality starts with questions, whereas religion often starts with answers.”

    Religion claims to know the answers, but when examined closely, it becomes apparent that these are claims, not facts. Give me spirituality and questions. There is value in finding our own answers.
